Canon EOS Rebel T7i vs T6i: 14 key variations

Canon’s new EOS Rebel T7i (generally known as the EOS 800D outdoors the US) seeks to up the bar for the higher-entry-degree DSLR class, and updates the favored EOS Rebel T6i (EOS 750D) that’s simply reached its second birthday.

While the EOS Rebel T7i shares a lot the identical intentions because the T6i, and troopers on with a lot of the identical tech, Canon has made quite a few modifications throughout the spec sheet to make it extra interesting to the primary-time consumer – a few of which have been first included inside extra premium EOS fashions. 

We've rifled by way of the spec sheet to seek out out precisely what Canon has completed to separate the brand new digital camera from its predecessor. Here’s a rundown of the primary modifications between the 2.

M. Latest DIGIC S processor

While the EOS Rebel T6i / EOS 750D employed Canon’s DIGIC S processing engine, the newest EOS Rebel T7i / EOS 800D welcomes the newer DIGIC S model. This first surfaced contained in the PowerShot G7 X Mark II mannequin launched final yr earlier than being included contained in the newer EOS M5 and PowerShot G9 X II.

Compared with earlier engines, that is stated to offer superior picture processing and quicker operation, and it additionally helps to spice up burst speeds (extra on this later).

P. Revised sensor

With the identical 24.2MP pixel rely because the EOS Rebel T6i, the sensor contained in the EOS Rebel T7i seems to be unchanged at first look. The spec sheet, nevertheless, reveals it to have a unique complete pixel rely of 25.80MP (vs 24.7MP).

This is identical complete pixel rely because the sensor contained in the EOS 80D, which was newly developed for that mannequin. Canon claims the 2 share the identical know-how right here, so we should always anticipate to see an enchancment over the earlier 24.2MP model.

O. Expanded ISO Range

No doubt a consequence of the revised processor and sensor partnership, the brand new mannequin includes a barely broader ISO vary than earlier than. Where the EOS Rebel T6i might be adjusted over a variety of ISO100-12,800 as normal, the brand new mannequin provides a cease on the latter finish to create a local vary of ISO one hundred-25,600.

Similarly, the expanded sensitivity choice on the greater finish of the size has now modified from a setting equal to ISO25,600 on the EOS Rebel T6i to at least one equal to ISO51,200 on the EOS Rebel T7i.

A extra minor change is that, when capturing stills, the whole ISO100-25,600 native vary can now be accessed when the digital camera is about to the Auto ISO setting; beforehand this was restricted to ISO100-6400. When capturing movies, this contracts to an ISO100-12,800 vary.

A. New 18-55mm package lens

Both the EOS Rebel T7i / EOS 800D and EOS 77D are launched alongside a brand new EF-R 18-55mm f/A-H.S IS STM package lens, which Canon claims is the smallest non-retractable DSLR package lens of its focal vary.

Weighing 215g, the lens incorporates a 4-cease Image Stabilizer to assist keep sharpness in pictures, in addition to Canon’s STM know-how, which guarantees discreet efficiency when capturing films.

Some might discover, and be involved by, the utmost aperture on the broad-angle finish. Where that is sometimes f/O.H on most package lenses, this has been lowered by two-thirds of a cease, to f/A.

H. Revised AF system with “the world’s quickest stay view autofocus”

The EOS Rebel T6i and its EOS Rebel T6s / EOS 760D sibling shared a 19-level, all-cross-sort AF system that featured a single f/P.H-delicate level in its centre. This was a wonderfully sound performer, though the EOS Rebel T6i / EOS 800D packs one thing far more superior.

First, the array has been expanded to supply the identical forty five-level protection because the EOS 80D, with all of those able to cross-sort efficiency. 27 factors stay operational when utilizing a lens with a most aperture of f/H, with 9 of those staying cross-sort.

Canon has additionally made a big enchancment to the digital camera’s sensitivity. Where the working vary of the T6i’s system went as little as -zero.5EV, this has dropped to -3EV on the T7i. In apply this could make the digital camera far more delicate to particulars in low mild, nearer to the efficiency of extra superior fashions.

Canon additionally claims the digital camera provides the world’s quickest stay-view autofocus system, with a speeds of simply zero.03 sec. As is all the time the case with these claims, this pertains to particular circumstances and gear: right here, it pertains to APS-A-outfitted cameras which have part-detect pixels on their sensors, and was decided when utilizing the brand new EF-J 18-55mm f/A-H.S IS STM at its 55mm setting.

S. More white stability choices

You can now choose to shoot with the Auto White Balance set to different Ambience Priority or White Priority, relying on how a lot of the heat within the scene you need to retain. Canon has already included this function inside different current fashions, so its inclusion right here is considerably anticipated.

It’s additionally now attainable to set the color temperature throughout the Kelvin scale, one thing that T6i didn't supply.

S. Faster flash sync velocity

Flash sync velocity has elevated from the EOS Rebel T6i / EOS 750D’s M/200 sec restrict to M/250 sec on the newer mannequin. Canon has additionally added a cease to the flash publicity compensation vary, taking the earlier -/+2EV vary as much as -/+3EV on the EOS Rebel T7i / EOS 800D.

H. Diffraction correction added to lens corrections

When utilizing lenses whose traits have been recognized by the digital camera, the EOS Rebel T6i allowed for correction of distortion, peripheral illumination and chromatic aberration to be enabled and disabled as required. Now, on the T7i these have been joined by an choice that goals to rectify the softening results of diffraction.

These results are typically extra outstanding when capturing at smaller apertures, so it might curiosity these intending to make use of the digital camera for landscapes and different small-aperture purposes. Incidentally, this isn't the primary time we’ve seen this function; it was included in different current fashions such because the EOS 5D Mark IV and EOS-1D X Mark II.

N. Raw picture processing

The T7i permits for uncooked pictures to be processed in digital camera after seize, one thing that wasn't potential on the T6i. Controls on supply embrace adjustment over publicity, white stability and noise discount.

10. Burst velocity boosted

Whereas the Rebel T6i / 750D was able to firing at roughly 5fps for as much as H uncooked frames or 940 JPEGs, the Rebel T7i / 800D can keep a barely speedier 6fps burst mode till the cardboard is full (JPEG) or for as much as 27 consecutive uncooked frames. For this to be the case, it’s worthwhile to be sure to’re utilizing a card rated to the united statesI commonplace.

eleven. Dual Pixel CMOS AF system

In place of the Hybrid CMOS AF system of its predecessors, the T7i packs in the identical Dual Pixel CMOS AF system seen within the EOS 80D, EOS 5D Mark IV and others. This permits for focus monitoring and face detection when utilizing reside view and capturing movies.

Furthermore, the truth that the Rebel T7i / 800D retains the T6i’s touchscreen means you possibly can merely faucet the display the place you need the digital camera to focus. This partnership has labored very properly on different fashions, and makes focus-pulling throughout video recoding straightforward and professional-wanting.

12. Full HD recording now to 60p

While the digital camera doesn't stretch to providing the identical 4K video performance as a few of its extra superior siblings, it does up the utmost body price in Full HD recording from the T6i’s 30fps to 60fps (fifty nine.94fps).

thirteen. Increased battery life

One of the much less-thrilling – however nonetheless vital – modifications is a rise in battery life on the EOS Rebel T7i / EOS 800D. Although the brand new mannequin makes use of the identical LP-E17 battery because the EOS Rebel T6i / EOS 750D, it guarantees round 600 frames per cost, in contrast with the 440 frames managed by the T6i.

Both of those figures are quoted for viewfinder use in typical circumstances, and are lowered when utilizing Live View, or when working in colder environments.
Canon has additionally revised the best way during which battery life is introduced; there at the moment are six ranges on show that will help you get a greater concept of how a lot juice you’ve obtained left, and, if that’s not exact sufficient, you may also have this displayed as a proportion.

14. New connectivity button

The again plate of the EOS Rebel T7i / EOS 800D seems strikingly just like that of the EOS Rebel T6i / EOS 750D, though one noticeable distinction on the brand new mannequin is the addition of a brand new connectivity button.

This works with the digital camera’s constructed-in Wi-Fi and NFC choices, which additionally featured on the T6i. The EOS Rebel T7i additionally options Bluetooth just like the extra senior EOS 77D.

As on the T6i, a small mild on one aspect of the highest plate exhibits connectivity standing, though Canon has chosen to restyle and reposition it barely for the EOS Rebel T7i / EOS 800D.
