Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Canon is now on the same playing field, sensor wise, as Nikon and Sony, which have had 24-megapixel APS-C ILCs for a while now.
Very comfortable to hold and use, the controls are within easy reach and the touchscreen is very well implemented, allowing you to navigate the menus and make setting selections with you a few taps. It's also very handy to be able to pinch-zoom into images to check sharpness.
Canon manages to make this big change feel incremental: It delivers roughly the same photo quality as before and shoots a little bit faster once you discount how fast the lens drives.
24-megapixel image sensor.
The biggest advantage of the T7i is its new autofocus system. With 45 cross-type AF points for shooting stills through the viewfinder, the T7i represents a notable upgrade from the T5i’s nine-point system
The T7 continues to deliver good image quality for a camera in its class. Under well-lit conditions, the camera consistently produced pleasing results, almost guaranteeing success straight out of the box.
The new Canon-designed 24.2MP CMOS sensor provides a noticeable increase in resolution compared to previous Rebels,

What reviewers didn't like

In our sample videos, color quality was good but there were occasional problems with focus as the level of light changed. Bright sunshine is must when using these Rebels as camcorders.
The EOS Rebel T6i / EOS 750D can also shoot continuously at up to 5fps. This may not seem fantastic by current standards, but it's still very useful when shooting sport.
While the T7i doesn't look as good when you do side-by-side comparisons, judged on its own most people will be quite happy with the results they get, especially if you'll just be viewing the photos on a mobile device. The colors pop nicely, skin tones look correct and it has a dynamic range that meets the expectations for its class -- like most low-to-midrange cameras the default settings increase contrast, which means you lose some detail in the brightest and darkest areas.
Limited buffer when shooting Raw.
If a camera’s screen can’t at least tilt, properly framing a shot at such angles is much harder.
While 4K may be the rage on many DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, the T7 sticks with the basics of full HD (1920 x 1080 at 30 frames per second), HD (1280 x 720 at 60 fps) and SD (640 x 480 at 30 fps). Movies are recorded in MPEG4 AVC H264, which delivers .MOV files so the T7's video can be shared easily.
Out of camera Jpeg images are very high quality. Raw image quality is not quite as sharp as the D5500, which lacks an anti-aliasing filter. However, the filter on the T6i appears to be relatively weak and it comes very close to the Nikon in sharpness. It would be difficult to tell the two apart in most real world usage.
