Canon's EOS 800D / T7i / Kiss9i is the latest entry level DSLR from the company . Slotting under the newly announced EOS 77D . The camera brings Canon's excellent dual pixel AF in to a market which has so far stayed eclipsed under the more expensive 70/80D models .
The EOS 800D - marketed as the T7i in the U.S and Kiss 9i in Japan ,shares a polycarbonate chassis similar to the rest of the Rebel T range . The camera also has 45 all cross type AF points and this is backed up by electronic image stabilization and a max 6 fps . The camera also has Dual Pixel AF - another first on a low end body which will allow you to pull better focus (in Auto) compared to the hybrid AF of the previous models . The Sensor - a 24.2 MP APS-C CMOS is also backed up by Canon's DIGIC 7 image processor which will allow you to process ISO levels from 100-25600 (which is slightly higher than even the 80D ) .Buyers can also expect NFC , Bluetooth 4.0 and WIFI technologies built in .
Unlike the slightly advanced 77D , the 800D does not feature a back button focus and a top mount LCD which is alright considering that its rivals in the price range (D5500) are also aimed at novice shooters.
