Canon EOS Rebel T6
Why: A fully-grown DSLR, with all the attendant performance and image quality upgrades, at a compact camera price. Compatible with all of Canon’s interchangeable flashes and EOS-mount lenses, it offers Wi-Fi and NFC wireless capabilities so you can operate it from your smartphone and easily upload images wherever you go.

Portability: One of the smallest DSLRs available, the Canon T6 is also very lightweight thanks to its polycarbonate construction. The dimensions are 5.1 x 3.9 x 3.07″ and the weight is approximately 17.11 oz.
Buying Advice: Team this camera up with the tiny new Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake lens ($199 at Adorama) and you’ve got a really, really small DSLR package that you can almost slip in a pocket! The standard kit lens is a good overall travel lens.
