The GoodThe Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D delivers reasonable photo and video quality and respectable performance in a time-tested body.

The BadRelatively large compared to other cameras in its class and its photos arent as sharp as competitors.

The Bottom LineFor a step up in photo quality or performance from a phone or compact, the Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D remains a fan favorite.

I usually steer people toward last-generation (or more) models for the best value on a budget, and thats especially true with Canons entry-level dSLRs, the Rebel series in the US. Canon tends to trickle down technology from older, higher-end models whose prices have dropped, and it just makes sense to buy those better models instead of the new one with the ancient insides.

But the Rebel T7i (called the 800D in the UK and Australia) represents Canons first truly significant update to the series, really since theT2iin 2010. TheT6igot a new-to-it sensor and autofocus system in 2015, but that was a transitional change. But somehow, Canon manages to make this big change feel incremental: It delivers roughly the same photo quality as before and shoots a little bit faster once you discount how fast the lens drives. It still doesnt really match the Nikon D5600 for photo quality or continuous-shooting speed, though it still has the lead for video autofocus.

The camera costs $850 with the 18-55mm f4-5.6 STM lens (895, AU$1,400) though regionally other kits are available.

The T7is body remains the same as its predecessors, but it finally incorporates Canons Dual Pixel CMOS sensor, a 3-year-old technology with on-chip phase-detection autofocus thats in almost all Canons other interchangeable-lens camera lines. But its a current sensor and metering system, the same ones that are in theEOS 80D, but with an even newer image-processing engine (Digic 7).

Canon still uses an antialiasing filter, which blurs edges slightly, on its sensors; Nikon does not. So Nikons shots look tons sharper than Canons. And Canons automatic white balance isnt as smart in cloudy conditions (or situations where the light color is similar).

The cameras adequately fast for typical kids-and-vacation photography, but it doesnt support continuous autofocus and autoexposure on its High setting. The camera doesnt automatically drop back to low or simply deliver a slower burst like it did with the T6i, so if you have it set to continuous AF and High-speed continuous shooting, dont be surprised when the shots come out inconsistently exposed with only the first few in focus. The safest thing to do is keep it on the slower setting (4.5 frames per second).

With a new sensor, better autofocus system and more streamlined design, the X100 line…

Its a lot like its predecessor, but for the most part, thats okay.

Fast and flexible, the Nikon D500 is one of the best dSLRs you can buy for under $2,000.

Sonys follow-up to its NEX-6 laps the field with its 11fps burst and comfortable design.

This compact interchangeable-lens model is a great step-up from APS-C models, as long…
