Canon has launched a new advanced entry-level DSLR, introducing the Canon EOS 800D / Rebel T7i – price tag £829.99/ €1,079.99 with an April release date.
The Canon EOS 800D shares the same 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor as the Canon 77D, also announced today. And along with the sensor, the two cameras share a wealth of other features, such as Canon’s DIGIC 7 processing engine and an 7560-pixel RGB+IR metering to detect fine details such as skin tone and offer accurate exposure.
The EOS 800D / Rebel T7i also offers a native range up to ISO 25,600, which can be extended to ISO 51,200, and Canon says it boasts the world’s fastest autofocus in Live View mode, at 0.03secs.
The new Canon 800D / Rebel T7i offers 45 cross-type AF points and can also shoot in continuous mode at 6 frames per second.
Other key features include Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology for tracking subjects, as well as 5-axis image stabilisation and Full HD video recording at 60 and a new HDR Movie Shooting mode.
Canon has also included WiFi, NFC and Bluetooth capability for sharing images from the camera.
One of the key differences between the Canon EOS 800D / Rebel T7i and the EOS 77D is the 800D’s guided interface, which explains how your camera settings work as you shoot.
The EOS 800D / Rebel T7i also offers a vari-angle touchscreen for capturing images at usual angles.
Canon EOS 800D / T7i Price & Release Date
The Canon EOS 800D / Rebel T7i price tag will be £779.99/€1,019.99 for the body only. The Canon EOS 800D / Rebel T79 price rises to £869.99/€1,139.99 for the EOS 800D + EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM kit.
The Canon EOS 800D / Rebel T7i release date will be in April 2017.
