Canon EOS Revolt T7i / EOS 800D assessment

The Canon EOS Revolt T7i (referred to as the EOS 800D out of doors the United States) is the newest in a protracted line of entry-level Canon DSLRs that may chart their heritage again to the unique EOS Virtual Revolt (EOS 300D) that arrived again in 2003.

Since then, the quite a lot of iterations and updates that experience come and long gone had been company favorites with each new and extra skilled customers alike.

Canon’s present EOS Revolt T6i / EOS 750D has established itself as one among our favorite entry-level DSLRs. It is full of a spread of options best for the brand new consumer, whilst the polished dealing with makes it a excitement to make use of.

However that digicam is now two years previous and starting to display its age, and with Nikon updating its entry-level vary with the likes of the D3400 and D5600, and with a slew of recent mirrorless opponents from quite a lot of producers being thrown into the combo, an replace from Canon was once at all times at the playing cards.

The EOS Revolt T7i / 800D provides a variety of enhancements over its predecessor, despite the fact that now not they all are obtrusive from a look on the spec sheet, so let’s take a better have a look at the Revolt T7i / 800D…


  • Makes use of the newest 24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • Flexible three.Zero-inch vari-angle touchscreen
  • Best 1080p video seize

Whilst the EOS Revolt T7i / EOS 800D sports activities the similar 24.2MP solution because the Revolt T6i / EOS 750D it replaces, the sensor has been overhauled we’re informed, and makes use of the similar generation we now have observed within the EOS 80D.

Canon would not elaborate on what precisely has modified, however we will speculate that it makes use of the similar on-chip digital-to-analogue conversion generation that we now have observed within the EOS 5D Mark IV to care for noise higher. 

The brand new sensor is partnered with a brand new DIGIC 7 symbol processor. We’ve got observed a DIGIC 7 chip already within the likes of Canon’s PowerShot G7 X II compact digicam, however that is moderately a distinct proposition. Canon claims it may well care for 14 occasions additional info than the DIGIC 6 processor that was once within the T6i / 750D, which once more will have to lend a hand ship a greater high-ISO noise efficiency, in addition to an stepped forward autofocus efficiency too.

We’re going to have a look at the autofocus in additional element a bit later, however sensitivity-wise the Revolt T7i / 800D provides a spread of ISO100-25,600 – that is an additional prevent over the T6i’s expanded 12,800 ISO ceiling, whilst there’s a Hello environment an identical to ISO51,200 additionally to be had. You’ll simply have to choose this within the customized environment.

Canon has opted to stay with the similar three.Zero-inch, vari-angle touchscreen show with a solution of one,040,000 dots. A slight spice up in solution, or build up in measurement to a few.2-inches (matching the Nikon D5600), would had been welcome right here, however possibly Canon will have felt enhancements have been needless right here, because it’s already one of the vital polished contact interfaces available in the market.

With 4K video seize changing into extra of a regular function on cameras, particularly the mirrorless opponents which the Revolt T7i / 800D can be going up towards, it is possibly a bit underwhelming to peer simplest Complete HD seize introduced.

Photos will also be captured at as much as 60p although, up from the T6i / 750D’s 30p, whilst Canon has geared up the Revolt T7i / 800D with a Five-axis symbol stabilization device for capturing hand held photos. Designed to paintings with video however now not stills, the device is designed to counter undesirable digicam motion, whilst IS-equipped lenses may also paintings along with the device.

There’s additionally a three.5mm stereo microphone jack port, however no headphone port to observe audio – one thing that’s lovely same old on cameras at this value level.

The T6i / 750D supported Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, and the T7i / 800D builds in this. There is now the strategy to arrange a low-energy Bluetooth connection so that you could at all times be attached to the digicam. We’ve observed one thing equivalent with Nikon’s SnapBridge connectivity, enabling you to remotely switch pictures out of your digicam to a suitable good tool.

Canon’s Digicam Attach app additionally means that you can wake the digicam from its shut eye (supplied you have not became the digicam totally off), in addition to browse pictures and function the digicam remotely. The Digicam Attach app itself has additionally been up to date to make it extra user-friendly, and to lend a hand information you throughout the controls.

New 18-55mm lens

The coming of the EOS Revolt T7i / EOS 800D additionally heralds a brand new 18-55mm package lens that’ll be introduced as a starter package with the digicam. The Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/Four-Five.6 IS STM is 20% smaller than its predecessor, and a bit slower (the older lens had a variable most aperture of f/three.Five-Five.6) due to its collapsible design, however provides as much as 4 stops of symbol stabilization. As we’ve were given our arms on probably the most first T7i / 800D’s to be had we’re the usage of the older lens for this assessment, however we will replace as soon as the brand new optic turns into to be had.
