Take a look at Major specification  difference between the core specification difference of between the two entry level camera.

Canon is not using it’s 7 year old sensor in Canon T7 camera, and it’s a really great news for all of us that Canon finally retired the 18MP sensor from entry level Tx series which was first introduced with Canon 7D camera. The new 24 MP sensor features better image quality, noise control and dynamic range compared to the Canon T6 camera.

Focus System

Canon T7 Canon T6
Focus Type Auto & Manual Focus Auto & Manual Focus
Focus Mode Manual Focus (M), Single-servo AF (S) Manual Focus (M), Single-servo AF (S)
Autofocus Points Phase Detection: 9 (1 Cross-Type) Phase Detection: 9 (1 Cross-Type)

The AF system of both the camera remains exactly same, difference between the two. Both camera uses 9 point Phase AF sensor and traditional contrast AF based APS-C sensor. So, you will be getting contrast AF in video mode in both the camera.

ISO Sensitivity

Metering Range: EV 1.0 to EV 20.0

Buffer/Continuous Shooting Up to 3 fps at 24 MP for up to 150 Frames in JPEG Format
Up to 3 fps at 24 MP for up to 11 Frames in Raw Format
Up to 3 fps at 18 MP for Unlimited Frames
Up to 3 fps at 18 MP for up to 6 Frames in Raw Format
White Balance Modes Auto, Cloudy, Custom, Daylight, Flash, Fluorescent (White), Shade, Tungsten Auto

Despite of having high resolution sensor, the camera is able to maintain same ISO numbers as of Canon T6 camera.  However, the new sensor gives better low-light performance compared to Canon T6 camera.

The continuous shooting speed of the new Canon T7 camera matches with Canon T6, despite of having a higher resolution sensor. The Buffer of the camera is also improved, now you are getting 24MP raw files upto 11 frames whereas the T6 was limited to 6 frame in a row.

    So, does this have a canon sensor with vertical color filter like foveon this time?

  • Bret Busby

    As I previously posted as a comment to the above article, the Nikon D3500 is shown to be better value for money.

    Why that comment that I posted, was censored, is not known.
