Canon EOS Rebel T7i / 800D Announced with Dual Pixel AF


Canon announced its latest entry-level DSLR, the EOS Rebel T7i (known as the EOS 800D in most regions and the Kiss X9i in Japan).

The new Rebel T7i maintains the same 24.4MP resolution CMOS sensor as its T6i predecessor. Main differences are the 45-point all cross-type autofocus system used for viewfinder shooting, and Dual Pixel AF in live view.

Powered by Digic 7 image processor provides a slightly faster 6 fps burst rate. The specs list also includes a 3″ 1.04 million-dot touchscreen LCD. The DSLR comes with Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth connectivity.

The Canon EOS Rebel T7i will go on sale in April for $750 body-only, $900 with the new EF-S 18-55mm F4-5.6 IS STM and $1300 with EF-S 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM.

When designing the new EOS Rebel T7i, Canon took into consideration feedback from entry-level photographers who expressed interest in learning to go beyond the program mode of a DSLR camera. Users will now be able to see on-screen how switching modes on the mode dial or tweaking settings can alter the image they are about to capture, guiding photographers on their way to capturing more compelling images, such as ones with a shallower depth-of-field or being able to give moving-subjects a frozen or flowing look.
