Canon t7 Vs t7i – Check Which one is Best & Why?


In 2019 I was traveling to Bangladesh from Michigan, But My brother took my Canon t7 Camera for his school trip, so unwillingly, I needed another Camera for my trip. One of my friends told me Canon t7’s earlier version Canon t7i has better features and performance, so I bought the t7i and also an EF18-55mm lens. The trip was cool. Below are some pictures of that trip.

After that trip, I made some more trips to Grand Canyon, India, and Thailand, and I have been using both of the Cameras for the last 3 years. Here I am sharing my last 3-year experience with these two DSLRs. Hope it will help you to make the right decision.

What are the differences? Which one is Best & Why?

  • Canon t7i contains 45 focus points, which helps to focus on 45 objects at the same time whereas the Canon t7 has 9 focus points.
  • ISO of  Canon t7i is 51200, and t7 ISO is 12800, which means you can take 4 times better images in any low lighting situation with Canon t7i.
  • After Charging once, you can shoot more than 600 photos with the t7i, and with Canon t7, you can shoot up to 500. 
  • Canon t7i Shoots at 6fps, which helps to do Action or Sports photography, and it records videos at 60fps. But Canon t7 shoots at 3 fps and records at 30 fps.
  • The Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit is available in t7i, you don’t need to worry about the sensor cleaning, but it’s not available in t7.
  • Spot metering is included in t7i, which helps to measure a tiny area of the scene; you can’t do this in t7.
  • Canon t7i has a 3.5mm microphone port to record noise-free sounds; t7 Doesn’t have any built-in port for the microphone.
  • In t7i, You can tap on the screen to focus or zoom. Canon t7, unfortunately, does not have a touch screen. 

Only one thing can make you comfortable with the Canon t7, which is its price, But you have to compromise all the features of the Canon t7i. If you are doing photography in a studio, then it’s okay to pick the Canon t7, but for all other purposes, the Canon t7i would be the best choice.


The Downsides of Canon T7i & T7

Canon T7i Canon T7
  • Before T7i I was using T6i, so it was a little bit hard for me to understand the function at the beginning, but right now, I’m okay.
  • The built-in audio recording element is OK for regular use, but you should have an external mic to get a clear and loud sound.
  • Sometimes The image stabilization system does not work properly. So it can give you a hard time if you are making any professional video. But for other video-making or capturing images, it is a great option. 
  • Pictures captured by T7i are satisfactory. But for wildlife photography, you may need a Better lens for better results.
  • The Autofocus system of this camera is slow, and it takes time to lock a fast-moving subject.
  • Hot shoe for using flash in the camera is not compatible with third-party accessories. So you have to be confined to Canon products. 
  • T7 focuses on the subject accurately when it is within 8 feet distance from the camera but fails to track the target when it reaches the endpoint. 
  • Downloading pictures from t7 through wifi is not possible though you have installed the Canon utility app. To transfer and save pictures in computer memory, you have to depend on an adaptor or USB cable.
