Canon EOS 77D / Canon EOS Rebel T7i Preview
This is a preview of the Canon EOS 77D and Canon EOS Rebel T7i. Normally I would have made two separate videos accept for the fact that these two cameras are basically identical.
The 77D falls right below the 80D and is meant to be a bridge to a more prosumer level camera.
Here are the main specs of these two cameras.
24.2 Megapixel Sensor
Digit 7 Processor
3 inch vari-angle touch screen
100-25,600 ISO natively (80D only goes to 16,000)
45 Auto Focus Points all cross type
6FPS contimous shooting with viewfinder and 4.5 with live view
Dual Pixel AF
1080 60 FPS
Wifi / NFC / Blue Tooth
1 SD Card Slot UHS1
Canon 77D Price: $899.99
Canon Rebel T7i Price: $749.99
The only major differences would be on the 77D you have a top LCD, extra button for back button focusing and a rear scroll wheel. Other than that it’s slightly, larger than the T7i.
Official Press Release
MELVILLE, N.Y., February 14, 2017 – Developed and designed to meet the varying needs of entry-level and advanced amateur photographers, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced two new additions to the celebrated EOS system – the EOS Rebel T7i DSLR camera, which adds to the popular Rebel series of entry-level DSLR cameras, and the EOS 77D DLSR camera, which represents a new category of cameras for advanced amateur photographers. Canon also introduced today the new EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens and Wireless Remote Control BR-E1, as well as added functionality for the Canon Connect Station CS100.

Focused on Innovation
The EOS Rebel T7i and EOS 77D both feature an optical viewfinder with a 45-point All Cross-type AF system* to help enable more precise focusing. In live view mode, both cameras utilize Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF to deliver the world’s fastest AF focusing speed of 0.03 seconds. 1 This technical achievement allows users to find their subject, focus accurately, and capture the shot more quickly than ever before. Both models also have built-in Wi-Fi®2, NFC3 and Bluetooth®4 technology for easy transfer of images.
In addition to the focusing enhancements, common features of the EOS Rebel T7i and EOS 77D cameras include:
Optical Viewfinder with a 45-point All Cross-type AF System*
Fast and accurate Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Phase-detection
24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) Sensor
DIGIC 7 Image Processor, ISO 100–25600
Built-in Wi-Fi®2, NFC3 and Bluetooth®4 technology

Canon EOS Rebel T7i Camera
The EOS Rebel T7i is the first camera in the EOS Rebel series with a 45-point, all cross-type AF system* within the Optical Viewfinder. It is also the first in the series with Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Phase-detection and the first with a DIGIC 7 Image Processor. Creative filters for both still images and video will allow users to customize the look and feel of their content in new and imaginative ways.
When designing the new EOS Rebel T7i, Canon took into consideration feedback from entry-level photographers who expressed interest in learning to go beyond the program mode of a DSLR camera. Users will now be able to see on-screen how switching modes on the mode dial or tweaking settings can alter the image they are about to capture, guiding photographers on their way to capturing more compelling images, such as ones with a shallower depth-of-field or being able to give moving-subjects a frozen or flowing look.
The Canon EOS Rebel T7i is scheduled to be available in April 2017 for an estimated retail price $749.99** for the body only, $899.99** with the new EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens and $1,299.00** with the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens respectively.
