Canon has announced the T7i digital camera, the latest model in its DSLR line-up. While the new version has a few upgraded features, it sadly still does not support 4K video. That said, the T-Series has long been one of Canon’s most popular cameras. The most notable upgrade is the inclusion of a 45-point cross-type autofocus system. It’s the first time the Rebel line-up has received this feature set. A 24 megapixel sensor headlines this feature set, which helps somewhat make up for its 1080p video.
The T7i is specifically geared towards entry-level photographers hoping to make the jump from a smartphone to a more powerful alternative. Canon specifically sought the feedback of this user group in designing this new camera. Additionally, amateur-friendly features like filters and built-in Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connectivity. The T7i will be available for purchase in April for $749.99 as the body-only or $899.99 with a 18-55m lens kit.
The EOS Rebel T7i is the first camera in the EOS Rebel series with a 45-point, all cross-type AF system* within the Optical Viewfinder. It is also the first in the series with Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Phase-detection and the first with a DIGIC 7 Image Processor. Creative filters for both still images and video will allow users to customize the look and feel of their content in new and imaginative ways.
