Canon Rebel T6 Video Accessory

"Is there anyway to hook up an external microphone on the Canon Rebel T6? Whether you have to use an adapter or something.."

Hi Mal,
Thanks for your question about shooting video with the Canon 6t.

Unfortuneately, Canon made a big mistake in not including a jack for remote sound recording while shooting video with your Rebel t6. The tiny condensor microphones just don't do a good enough job for sound quality unless your voice, right next to the microphone, is all the sound you need.

I contacted my support friends over at Canon USA to confirm this and there is no work around. I really wondered why Canon designed the T6 as they did. I know the T6i is such a better camera (at twice the price). The t6 sensor is the older 18 MP and the processor is only a digic 4+.

Canon Rebel T6 Price

The T6 is really an affordable camera no doubt, great for those who have a limited budget for an entry level DSLR. At the time of this post you can get the T6 camera body for less than $340.

I know this isn't the answer you were hoping for. The best option for getting good quality sound is adding it in later with video editing software. I use Corel VideoStudio.

Thanks for visting my site.
Let me know how you make out.
Good Luck,

Bruce

Canon T6 Accessories On Canon M50 Mirrorless Compatibility
by: Ray

Hi Bruce, I have a Canon T6 and am wondering if all the accessories for this camera would work with a Canon M50 body? Lenses, etc.

I am looking to produce video content and the T6 just will not work for what I'm trying to do.

Thank you,
Ray


Hi Ray!, The quick answer to your question is yes. I'm not sure exactly what accessories you want to use from your t6 for your Canon M50, but the hot shoe on top of the M50 is the same as your Rebel t6. As far as lenses go, you can use your EF and EF-S lenses on the M50 with the right EF-M/EF-S Adapter . There are many available, some good, some not so good. Make sure you get an adapter that gives you full functioning autofocus to take advantage of the dual pixel focusing on the M50. Good Luck, Bruce
