Hands on Canon EOS Rebel Ti EOS D audit TechRadar

“A host of improvements, including a new graphical interface to help begi
ers, should see the EOS Rebel T7i / 800D quickly become a firm favourite with new users looking for a well-spec’d and easy to use DSLR.
The Canon EOS Rebel T7i (EOS 800D outside the US) is the latest in a long line of entry-level Canon DSLRs that can chart their heritage back to the original EOS Digital Rebel (EOS 300D outside the US) that arrived back in 2003.
Since then, the various iterations and updates that have come and gone have been firm favourites with both new and more experienced users alike.
Canon’s current EOS Rebel T6i (EOS 750D outside the US) has established itself as one of our favourite entry-level DSLRs. It’s packed with a range of features perfect for the new user, while the polished handling makes it a pleasure to use.

But that camera is now two years old and begi
ing to show its age, and with Nikon updating its entry-level range with the likes of the D3400 and D5600, and with a slew of new mirrorless rivals from various manufacturers being thrown into the mix, an update from Canon was always on the cards.
Arriving this April with a new 18-55mm f/4-5.6 STM lens for $899.99 / u00a3869.99 (Australian pricing still to be confirmed), the EOS Rebel T7i / 800D offers a number of improvements over its predecessor, although not all of them are obvious from a glance at the spec sheet. Let’s take a closer look…
Key features
APS-C CMOS Sensor, 24.2MP
3.0-inch vari-angle touchscreen, 1,040,000 dots
1080p video capture
While the EOS Rebel T7i / EOS 800D sports the same 24.2MP resolution as the Rebel T6i / EOS 750D, the sensor has been overhauled, and uses the same technology that we’ve seen in the EOS 80D.
Canon wouldn’t elaborate on what exactly has changed, but we can speculate that it uses the same on-chip digital-to-analogue conversion technology that we’ve seen in the EOS 5D Mark IV.
The new sensor is partnered with a new DIGIC 7 image processor. We’ve seen a DIGIC 7 chip already in Canon’s PowerShot G7 X II, but this is quite different. Canon claims it can handle 14 times more information than the DIGIC 6 processor, which should see better high-ISO noise performance and improved autofocus performance.
We’ll look at the autofocus a little later, but sensitivity-wise the Rebel T7i / 800D offers a range of ISO100-25,600 u2013 that’s an extra stop over the T6i u2013 which can be expanded to 51,200 if absolutely necessary.
Canon has opted to stick with the same 3.0-inch, vari-angle touchscreen display with a resolution of 1,040,000 dots. A slight boost in resolution would have been welcome here, although this is already one of the most polished touch interfaces out there, so Canon may have felt that improvements were u
With 4K video capture becoming more of a standard feature on cameras, especially the mirrorless rivals that the Rebel T7i / 800D will be going up against, it’s perhaps a little disappointing to see only Full HD capture offered.
Footage can be captured at up to 60p, but what’s more interesting is that Canon has equipped the Rebel T7i / 800D with a 5-axis image stabilization system for shooting hand-held footage.”
