DP Review has a hands on look at this new camera from Canon.
The T7i will be sold with a new kit lens: the Canon EF-S 18-55mm F4-5.6 IS STM. This new zoom is 20% smaller than its predecessors and a little slower, but in terms of handling, it suits the equally diminutive camera quite well. According to Canon, image stabilization should produce up to four stops of shake reduction.
Able to focus in just 0.03 seconds in Live View, the Canon EOS 800D Digital SLR Camera Body is a high-quality DSLR that boasts the world’s fastest Live View AF system. It features a 24.2-megapixel sensor and fast DIGIC 7 image processor, which together deliver ready-to-print, detailed images. Its dual pixel CMOS AF mode tracks subjects as they move, focusing smoothly for professional results
On the left of the top-plate you can see the tiny LED light which indicates when the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi is active. Speaking of Wi-Fi, the T7i has that plus NFC for easy pairing with Android devices and Bluetooth LE for instant photo transfer to a compatible smartphone. It’s also compatible with Canon’s new BR-E1 Bluetooth remote control.
A brand new user interface guides beginner photographers through the process of choosing the right exposure modes and settings to get the shots they want.
A fully-articulating 3″, 1.04 million-dot touch-sensitive LCD makes video shooting easy. In live view and video modes, focus can be set by touch. For video shooters, a 3.5mm diameter stereo mini jack is available for recording sound via an external microphone.
