Canon rebel T7 breakdown and review

The Canon rebel T7 camera presents itself as a small camera packed with some powerful features. More impressive is its higher sensor delivering improved performance. The camera is an improved version of its predecessor, the T6.

This camera is a DSLR (digital single-lens reflex camera), a type of digital camera that allows interchangeable lenses on the same camera body. The camera, despite its high-end features, is very affordable making it a great DSLR entry-level camera.

The camera is similar to the T6 but comes with a 24.1 MP sensor that’s the difference between a good image size, zooming range, depth of field, and its performance in low light, compared to a bad one. This helps determine how good the photos will look like and how big they can be scaled or printed. It’s also easy to use making it user-friendly to DSLR beginners. It also comes with an 18-55mm or 3.5 – 5.6f IS II lens. The camera has a 3-inch LCD fixed screen and an optical viewfinder that give you clear and bright photos.

What we liked;

  • Its budget-friendly
  • Easy to use
  • It comes with an in-camera feature guide
  • The feature set is solid
  • Good image quality

What we did not like;

  • Lacks touchscreen support
  • Slow when it comes to continuous shooting
  • The LCD allows no tilt
  • No 4K video

Canon Rebel T7 Features

Design and Build

The Canon Rebel T7 measures 3.1 x 5.1 x 4 inches and weighs 1.04 pounds as a body only, and 1.75 pounds with the SD card and battery. The body is mostly made of plastic with its grip covered in textured rubber to offer solid and comfort when in use. The control system is made of buttons with an on/off switch and a 4-way controller which are well-marked. Its external controls offer one-touch access to the most important features including white balance, focus & drive modes, and ISO making it easy to use. You will rarely have to use the full menu system with the quick menu or Q button in place. For saving your mostly used settings, there’s a My Menu option.

Performance
