Canon EOS Rebel T7 DSLR Review

The EOS Rebel T7 / EOS 2000D is Canon’s latest entry into the competitive entry-level DSLR sector, replacing the EOS Rebel T6 / EOS 1300D. At a relatively low price point (entry-level DSLRs can be noticeably cheaper than many compact and bridge cameras). These are the cameras that have traditionally introduced new users to the brand, with manufacturers hoping this will be the one they stick with.

Design:

The T7 has a similar body as the T6. It estimates 4.0 by 5.1 by 3.1 inches (HWD) and weighs 1.1 pounds without a lens. It does not deviate from the SLR design paradigm in any way. The body is finished in black, with a modest grip, built-in pop-up flash and a hot shoe on the optical viewfinder.

Like the T6, the T7 is rigidly equipped with an EF-S 18-55mm f / 3.5-5.6 IS II lens. As with the rest of the camera, the lens isn’t new. The EF-S 18-55mm f / 4-5.6 IS STM, complete with models like the T7i and SL2, is the latest iteration, two generations newer than the T7.

Image quality:

The camera is designed to capture images, and that’s the only thing the T7 gets. The 24MP image sensor puts it on the same level as the competition, even if the image processor that powers it is older. Images from our ISO test scene show the T7 delivers crisp and clean JPG images up to ISO 1600.

At ISO 3200 there is a little blur, the maximum setting is less than 1.5% noise, and more blurring at ISO 6400. ISO 12800 is the top option, but you have to dive into the menu to enable it on and turn it on manually when you want to use it – the automatic adjustment peaks at ISO 6400.
