Canon EOS 4000D sensor review: Temptingly affordable

Declared barely 4 months back, the Canon EOS 4000D (Rebel T6 in North America) is the Japanese maker's most recent temptingly moderate, minimal and super-lightweight DSLR. It has a 18MP CMOS sensor, and utilizations Canon's DIGIC 4+ picture processor to empower a local ISO scope of 100-6400, which is expandable to 12,800 with gain. The 4000D can likewise offer short blasts at up to 3 fps for passing minutes.

Like others at this level in Canon's lineup, the viewfinder self-adjust comprises of a 9-point AF framework with a solitary cross-type sensor at the middle. Notwithstanding the typical auto and self-loader introduction modes, it includes a heap of simple to use scene-arranged modes, including a Scene Intelligent Auto mode and a Creative Auto mode that utilizations innovative channels.

Key specifications:
  • 18Mp APS-C CMOS sensor
  • 9-point AF (viewfinder)
  • DIGIC 4+ processor
  • 2.7-inch tilting LCD
  • 3 fps continuous shooting
  • 1080/60p video
  • Wi-Fi

Overall performance

The Canon EOS 4000D accomplished a general DxOMark sensor score of 63 focuses, which is on the low side for a cutting edge APS-C-measure CMOS sensor, yet on the in addition to side, execution is probably going to be an issue just when the camera is pushed to the boundaries.

The Canon sensor conveys its best execution at the base affectability (ISO100), which estimated near the producer's setting. Obviously, the individual scores are somewhat low. The Portrait (shading profundity) score of 21.9 bits is very some path behind the pioneers in this sensor estimate, and the same can be said for the 4000D's unique scope of 11.4 EV. So, much of the time this is a proficient score with all that could possibly be needed range for managing inadequately uncovered pictures at either end of the histogram.

The low-light ISO score is the greatest ISO affectability that meets our strict picture quality criteria — at least 18-bit shading, no less than 9 EV dynamic range, and a base 30 dB motion to-commotion proportion (SNR). The 4000D accomplished those limits at a genuinely low 695 ISO, however that is for natural RAW records. When sparing JPEGs in-camera utilizing the installed Digic 4+ processor or when utilizing RAW transformation programming, ISO sensitivities of ISO1600 ought to be well inside the abilities of the camera.

Image quality compared

Including the same 18Mp APS-C sensor as the prior EOS 7D and the EOS 60D from a similar age (2009-10), it is maybe obvious that the 4000D offers fundamentally the same as picture quality.

With shading affectability around the 22-bit check, every one of the three are astoundingly close, offering no genuine contrast in execution, especially at low ISOs. Furthermore, with only a +0.3 EV distinction between them in powerful range at base, and about the same again in our base Low-light ISO score, there's little to separate among the three regarding sensor elements.

While it's anything but difficult to be basic, how about we help ourselves that the most minimal to remember those models was just shy of $1,200 when propelled, significantly more than the cost of the 4000D in the present cash.

As a super-reasonable DSLR, the 4000D isn't the only one. Chief opponent Nikon has received a technique of offering comparable performing sensors over their lineup, giving different highlights a chance to separate among the models and deciding the costs. This implies the Nikon D3400 sensor is basically at the main edge of current sensor execution, which clarifies the 23-point distinction in the DxOMark sensor score amongst it and the 4000D.

In-depth comparisons

For more insights about sensor execution, our inside and out examination investigates how the Canon EOS 4000D contrasts and the Canon EOS 7D from late 2009, and the adversary Nikon D3400, an aggressively valued section level model.

Portrait (color depth)

At their separate least local affectability settings (base ISO), the sensors in the Canon EOS 7D and 4000D are performing at for all intents and purposes a similar level with no genuine distinction in execution. Against the more present day sensor in the Nikon D3400, which has a higher pixel check and consequently littler, possibly less delicate pixels to survive, the distinction is significantly in their adversary's support. It is a standout amongst other performing sensors we've seen, with an extraordinarily higher shading profundity of more than 24 bits, contrasted with around 20 bits for the Canon match, comparing to around a +2.5 stop advantage for the Nikon.

As the ISO affectability builds, shading affectability in the Canon combine diminishes at a pretty much predictable rate through the mid ISO settings, both achieving our quality edge of 17 bits at the producer's ISO 1600 setting. There's some slight deviation in affectability with the 4000D and its lower local ISO 6400 greatest, contrasted with the 7D's ISO 12800, by virtue of some tuning in the last mentioned, however it's a distinction of not as much as 33% of a stop at our 14-bit restrain.

It is an alternate story with the sensor in the Nikon 3400. Not exclusively improves shading affectability in the 200-400 ISO go over the Canon combine, it likewise keeps up a noteworthy execution envelope of 1 to 2 stops all through the range, hitting the incredible 20-bit edge at ISO1600. Indeed, even at our 14-bit least, the Nikon has around a one-stop advantage, which is still prone to result in enhanced shading interpretation at those outrageous ISO settings.

Landscape (dynamic range).

The more extensive the dynamic scope of the sensor, the better the gadget is at recording the scope of luminance esteems between the most profound shadows and the most splendid features in a picture.

A wide powerful range benefits clients at all levels of understanding, and is especially helpful while altering introduction after catch. The D3400's deliberate least ISO is about a large portion of a stop lower than those of the Canon cameras, yet offers a sizable 2.5 stops or so of more extensive powerful range. A 11.4-stop dynamic range for the 4000D is still great, be that as it may. That the 7D shows a humble change of +0.3 EV in unique range over it comes down to tuning: the 4000D offers the same or comparable sensor, and at higher ISOs, there's no distinction between the two.

In spite of the fact that the Nikon D3400 keeps on showing a more extensive powerful range at all affectability settings, that edge is decreased at higher ISOs. By the by, the around one-stop advantage at ISO 3200 is still a significant critical appearing, and an advantage to picture takers in low-light conditions when utilizing the camera hand-held. 

Sports (low-light ISO)

SNR is a proportion of how well the sensor catches a picture before arbitrary mistakes, or clamor, is discernible. At its most reduced affectability of ISO 100, the 4000D accomplishes 38.5 dB in our flag to-commotion proportion (SNR 18%) tests, which is simply inside our 38dB quality limit.

Expanding ISO affectability only one stop to ISO 200, the 4000D plunges just underneath that edge and keeps on declining directly through ISO 800, where it drops underneath our second quality limit of 30dB, implying that low commotion levels aren't a solid point for this sensor. Furthermore, maybe obviously, the same is valid for the Canon EOS 7D.

Interestingly, the Nikon D3400 with its 24MP sensor has much lower clamor levels at all sensitivities. Pictures caught over ISO 100-200, for instance, stay over 38dB, and the D3400 keeps up a one-stop advantage (or only under) at for all intents and purposes each ISO setting.

Despite the fact that that is no ifs ands or buts an advantage of utilizing a substantially more current sensor, our estimations depend on natural RAW documents, so you can expect bring down commotion in JPEGs from the 4000D's processor or when utilizing work area programming.


As a section level camera, the 4000D is profoundly appealing. It has an extraordinary blend of highlights for apprentices, for example, an extensive variety of shooting modes, HD video, great ergonomics, and easy to understand controls. It's likewise light in weight at 436g and exceedingly minimized, and it approaches the biggest scope of focal points of any framework. There are reasons why Canon is one of the first camera producers on the planet!

As far as sensor execution, the 4000D isn't at the front line, notwithstanding. Like its pricier 2000D kin, it likewise does not have Canon's inventive Dual Pixel AF innovation. To be sure, it gives off an impression of being utilizing a sensor plan from two or three ages back, yet it is a proficient entertainer under everything except the most difficult of conditions. All things considered, Nikon's forcefully estimated D3400 eclipses the 4000D in sensor execution, as well as has a somewhat higher pixel check.

The EOS 4000D has one critical point on its side, in any case: its cost. At around $400 with a 18-55mm zoom, it is low enough to entice even easygoing clients from their cell phones by offering an exceptionally reasonable section into DSLR photography.

In this audit we have contrasted the Canon EOS 4000D with its most direct opponents that we've tried. Not surprisingly, you can make your own particular correlations and top to bottom examinations utilizing our intuitive picture sensor positioning instrument.
