Canon EOS 77D: price, specs, release date confirmed

Canon has launched a new mid-range DSLR, introducing the Canon EOS 77D – price tag £829.99/ €1,079.99 with an April release date.

The Canon EOS 77D shares the same 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor as the Canon 80D, as well as Canon’s DIGIC 7 processing engine.

Canon says the EOS 77D also boasts the world’s fastest autofocus in Live View mode, at 0.03secs. The new Canon camera also offers 45 cross-type AF points.

Sharing much of its feature set with the EOS 800D, also announced today, the EOS 77D also offers 7560-pixel RGB+IR metering to detect fine details such as skin tone and offer accurate exposure.

The new Canon camera can also shoot in continuous mode at 6 frames per second.

In terms of sensitivity, the EOS 77D offers a native range up to ISO 25,600, which can be extended to ISO 51,200.

Other key features include Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology for tracking subjects, as well as 5-axis image stabilisation (for video) and Full HD video recording at 60 and a new HDR Movie Shooting mode.

For greater connectivity Canon has also built-in WiFi, NFC and Bluetooth capability for sharing images from the camera.
