Canon T7i Review

It seems like more people nowadays are getting a DSLR as their main camera over a traditional point and shoot. And Canon is one of the top DSLR camera brands out there. I’ve been using a Canon Rebel T1i, ever since it came out in 2009.

Now, six versions later and we have the T7i and it has easily become one of my favourite DSLRs.

Design & Hardware


With each new model in the Canon Rebel T series, has brought new features and improved sensors and more. The T7i comes with a 24.2-megapixel sensor. On the top of the device, is where you’ll find the Wi-Fi connection button, mode selector, On/Off/Video switch, ISO, display, control wheel and of course, the shutter button.


The T7i has a 3-inch LCD touchscreen which can swivel and tilt to either face you (in a sort-of selfie mode) or at various angles. It was super simple to switch between modes on the T7i and the camera’s body all black with some grip texture on the front. The design of the T7i is fairly similar to previous models.


On the left side of the device, you’ll find the mic jack and remote port as well as the mini HDMI and micro USB, all these ports are being covered with flaps. The bottom of the camera is where you’ll find the battery and tripod mount. The right side of the T7i has the SD card slot.


The added video mode on the on/off switch makes it so much easier to quickly change to video and start recording. The T7i is slimmer than previous models, which makes it easier to carry around.


The button layout on the T7i is fairly simple and straight-forward, which made it easier to navigate the camera. I did find one minor annoyance with the T7i’s touchscreen, where when I would try to change a setting,

I would have to press the Q button on the screen to then unlock the screen and make changes. This got really annoying, especially when wanting to quickly change settings while trying to capture the perfect shot only to be bogged down by the locked screen.

Other than that, the interface on the screen was fairly simple to use and was responsive.

The photos I took on the T7i looks amazing, there is a ton a detail and colours pop. Even video looks great, even if there is no 4K video support on the T7i, it can only record up to 1080p video at up to 60fps. The T7i also worked well in low-light and night shots.

Because of the new DIGIC 7 image processor and the Dual Pixel CMOS AF, you can expect much clearer and more beautiful pictures from the T7i. The T7i should also be able to focus because of an improved 45-point autofocus system, so everything should be in focus.


The shutter on the T7i is really quick, compared to my aging T1i, it’s a vast improvement but it may not be as much of an improvement coming from a T5i or T6i.

Final Thoughts IMG_20170628_133937.jpg

Overall, I really liked using the T7i, as mentioned earlier, I’ve been using the T1i and after using the T7i, it seems like I’m due for a long overdue upgrade. It’s one of the best DSLRs that I’ve used and should be great for anyone, no matter the photography skill level.


  • Excellent image quality (thanks to the Dual Pixel AF)
  • Good build
  • Easy-to-use interface
  • Wi-Fi & Bluetooth connectivity
  • Great battery life (especially when doing video only)


  • No 4K video
  • Touchscreen issues
