When the entry-level EOS Rebel was rolled out into the market by Canon some years back, launched simultaneously with it was the Rebel T61. Basically, both have a striking resemblance and more or less showcase the same set of features. In terms of body-mounted controls, the T6s definitely had more to offer, as well as a small LCD display which has been designed to appeal to users with more experience, who require having more control.
Fast track to just two years and canon is at it again, with the roll out of the EOS Rebel T7i, as well as the 77D which will comfortably rank among the company’s best entry-level camera. (More information about T7I and 77D, please read this article)
To make things a bit clear and ensure that Canon’s model numbering is well understood, the EOS T6i will be replaced by the EOS T7i, whereas in canon’s enthusiast EOS DSLR range, the successor of the T6s is the EOS 77D and ranks just a little below EOS 80D.
The latest product in the long chain of entry level Canon DSLRs are the Canon EOS Rebel T7i and EOS 77d. The origin of the Canon DSLRs can be traced back to the original EOS Digital Rebel that was introduced sometime in 2003.
From then till date, all the updates and iterations following it have all been generally accepted as a market choice by both experienced and new users. The latest EOS Rebel T6i/T6s from Canon has proven to be a market best choice entry-level DSLRs. It comes with features that make it suitable for new users, while its polished handling makes its usability easy.
The T7i and the 77D can be considered as two different models of the same product. While the T7i follows the model style of the classic Canon XX0D series in manipulation, the 77D takes 80D as an example, as it is not only equipped with a top LCD display but also has an installed Quick Canon Control dial, forming the classic double-command dial control style of Canon.
After a few days of rumors, Canon has made official the launch of three new models of digital cameras including a mirrorless, the EOS M6, and two SLR, the EOS 77D and T7i, the first of which opens a new tier in the firm’s catalog of DSLR models. We’ll tell you all the details about the camera and our impressions based on a short hands-on made with a pre-production model.
The Canon EOS 77D arrives to be positioned immediately below the EOS 80D, model with which it shares many features (which are also common to the other two cameras presented today), mainly the 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, the next-generation DIGIC 7 processor, the rear touch screen and the low power Bluetooth connection in order to maintain a constant connection between the camera and a smartphone.
Together with the new EOS M6 and EOS 77D, Canon has also introduced the renewal of its mid-low range of digital SLR cameras that is embodied in the new EOS T7i (EOS 800D). As we have done with the other models, we offer you all the details about it as well as some first impressions obtained in the hands-on we had with a pre-production model.
As we’ve said before, unlike the other two models presented today, the Canon EOS T7i is a model that does arrive to replace a camera, or rather two, which already have some time on the market, the EOS T6i and T6s , within a product range consolidated for years. In fact, the new EOS T7i is the new generation of the legendary EOS 300D that in 2003 broke molds by presenting itself as the first "Affordable DSLR".
After some years, this line is no longer the entry point of the DSLR, but it is located in an intermediate segment, more specifically it is the highest within the entry range and it is an "excellent camera to start your first journey in the DSLR world," according to Canon. In this sense, the model is aimed at a user who seeks image quality but who has no aspirations to go beyond that and doesn’t plan on learning advanced photography.
Mirrorless threaten DSLR cameras. It appears to be the future, and cameras using mirrors feel like part of the past. Is it really so? When will the transition take place? Will the Canon 6D Mark II be one of the first DSLR’s to die? Well, no. Finally it seems that the camera will be launched in 2017.
Yes there will be Canon 6D Mark II
Many photography specialized journalists have stated that the Canon 6D Mark II would not arrive next year because this camera would be replaced by a new high level mirrorless camera by Canon. However, it seems that will not be so.
The new Canon mirrorless camera will have a Full Frame sensor, being thus the first mirrorless of the company with a sensor in this format, arriving after the Canon EOS M5 that has an APS-C sensor.
Canon announced the renewal of one of its most advanced compact cameras, the PowerShot G9 X Mark II, which maintains the 1" sensor with 20 Mpx resolution, but includes the company’s latest image processor, the DIGIC 7.
The new Canon compact retains much of the features of the first Powershot G9 X –sensor, 3" touch screen, Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity–, and especially its 3x optical zoom lens, with an equivalent focal length of 28-84 mm and maximum apertures of f/2-4.9. Video recording is also maintained in Full HD resolution. The differences mainly focus on the replacement of the old DIGIC 6 image processor by the new DIGIC 7, which allows, among other improvements, to increase the burst from 6 to 8 fps. Also, for the first time in the Powershot series, Bluetooth Smart functionality is added, allowing fast pairing with compatible mobile devices.
We took advantage of the release of the Tamron SP 90 mm f/2,8 Macro Di VC USD update to confront it with its main rival in the Canon universe: the Canon EF 100 mm f/2.8 L Macro IS USM.
Even if their focal lengths are not exactly the same, these two objectives both have the particularity to be designed for freehanded fieldwork and to integrate an optical stabilization.
We have recommended each of these two models in their respective tests, but between the two, what is the best choice? We will try to figure it out.
These two objectives are very similar at the level of their technical characteristics. Both are designed for macro shooting and offer a reproduction report of 1 for 1 with a minimum distance of 30 cm for adjustment.
