The Canon EOS T7i is the latest addition to the Rebel lineup and it came out to replace the T6i.
In a market segment that has never been more crowded, building a well-balanced camera for casual photographers and beginners is not as easy as it used to be. Yet Canon has pulled it off again with the T7i. Much like its predecessors, this is an honest camera. You know you’re not getting top notch specs or a build quality that gives you confidence to throw it around, but it’s also obvious that image quality is very good for a camera in this price range. The entire Rebel series has a tradition of providing excellent price/quality ratios and this is no exception. At the heart of the T7i is a 24MP APS-C sensor that works together with the DIGIC 7 image processor.
One of the most interesting features of the T7i is its AF system. All of its 45 points are horizontally and vertically sensitive. This makes it easy to work with the camera when shooting through the viewfinder, as well as when using the LCD.
However, there are some limitations that could make this camera less interesting for part of the potential buyers. Canon didn’t struggle to give it high-end specs, and this is totally understandable for the Rebel class. But when pretty much every new premium smartphone and so many mirrorless cameras (we’re not even talking about the flagships here) have 4K video resolution, the 1080p maximum video resolution of the T7i can be a deal breaker for people who want to shoot high resolution videos on their travels.
Even so, this has been labeled by many as the best Rebel yet and we must admit that you do get a lot for the money. We highly recommend it to beginners and occasional photographers who want great image quality without breaking the bank.
