Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D comes with a standard camera body we know and love. The color available is black, and why not – it’s classic and cool. To kick things off, they promised considerable upgrades from the 750D which was the previous model. The resolution has stayed the same, 24.2 MP, but as they say – if it ain’t broken – don’t fix it. It is speculated that the technology of digital to analog transfer has been to thank for the quality of pictures. The body is made of aluminum and polycarbonate combination, although the matte finish feels plasticky and cheap.
It’s time we take a look at the specifications of Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D. The APS-C CMOS sensor of 24.2 MP as we previously took notice of is present. We’ve seen the same one in cameras in this price range, so this isn’t a huge of a surprise. The sensor is paired with a DIGIC 7 image processor, which we have also seen in some of the competitors. Nonetheless, it is of great quality and delivers the results, and that’s all we care about. They claim the processor has improved, it can handle 14 times more data than the previous one, which is quite a boost.
It is important to realize that Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D also supports shooting in difficult light conditions. The sensitivity spans from ISO100-25,600, assuring you in an effortless photo shooting experience. The screen on the back sports only 3.0-inch in diameter, and with 1,040,000 dots in resolution. It feels like Canon lost the race here compared to the Nikon D5600 with a 3,2-inch screen, but maybe Canon felt the screen is sufficient already. Let us tell you about more of Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D features. The first thing that comes to mind would probably be the video quality.
Now, you probably are thinking of recording in 4K and enjoying a huge resolution, as that’s something you see today. We must emphasize that the cost of the body-only is 747$, so you shouldn’t be harsh. With that in mind, Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D can shoot only in 1080p, and you can choose the frames per second part. Available are 60, 30, 25, 24 fps, and the optical image stabilization is ready to help. A 3,5mm jack is present in order to plug a microphone, but then you can’t plug your headphones! That’s concerning because you’d probably like to hear the audio at the time of recording, and avoid troubles right away.
To summarize things up, we will tell you of a few other features of Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D. Canon’s Camera Connect app is the rival to Nikon’s SnapBridge, which you might be familiar with. Using a low-energy Bluetooth connection, it allows you to transfer your photos and videos wirelessly. Feel free to forget those days of struggle, dragging a USB cable to transfer photos. If you haven’t turned the camera off completely, wake it up from hibernation using the app. And what’s more – the ability to remote-control your camera is also present through the app, allowing for a world of possibilities.
