Canon has announced a new entry-level DSLR aimed at vloggers, introducing the Canon EOS 2000D / Rebel T7, price tag £369.99/€429.99 with a March release date.
The Canon EOS 2000D / Rebel T7 slots into Canon’s recent strategy to target smartphone users looking to make the jump to their first interchangeable lens camera, but with the launch today, as well, of the EOS 4000D / Rebel T100 below it, the Canon EOS 2000D / Rebel T7 isn’t on the bottom rung of Canon’s DSLR range.
That said, the differences between the Canon EOS 2000D / Rebel T7 and 4000D / Rebel T100 are slight at first glance.
Inside the Canon EOS 2000D / Rebel T7 is a 24.1-megapixel APS-C-format sensor, compared to an 18-megapixel chip in its sibling.
The new Canon camera also shares the 1300D’s DIGIC 4+ processor, which gives the camera a native sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 6,400 (expandable to ISO 12,800).
The Canon EOS 2000D / Rebel T7 can also shoot at 3fps for 150 JPEGs or 11 raw files in its continuous shooting mode.
As for video, it doesn’t offer 4K video recording like the mirrorless EOS M50 also announced today, but the Canon EOS 2000D / Rebel T7 can shoot Full HD (1920 x 1080) video at 30, 25 or 24fps for up to 29 minutes and 59 seconds.
Another key difference between the Canon EOS 2000D / Rebel T7 and the EOS 4000D is a fixed 7.5cm LCD screen (compared to a fixed 6.8cm LCD on the EOS 4000D.
The Canon EOS 2000D / Rebel T7 is also WiFi-enabled, allowing users to share images or back them up to Canon’s cloud storage service, irista.
What’s more, Canon says the EOS 2000D / Rebel T7 offers a battery life of around 500 still images or one hour and 30 minutes of HD video.
