Canon T7

Entry-level yearbook camera


The Canon T7 has better image quality, less noise, realistic colors, a higher-resolution sensor, and better ergonomics than the previous Rebel cameras. More yearbook photographers likely use the T7 than all other cameras combined. The camera is inexpensive compared to other models. When paired with a quality lens, this camera will work well on the football field during the day or in the classroom. However, what are the drawbacks of this camera? The camera will struggle in low light, primarily when you use it to stop action. The T7 has a limited burst mode speed and frame rate. The autofocus and metering systems are dated, and the camera lacks the Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus found in other models. If you understand the limitations of this model, the Canon EOS Rebel T7 is a decent option for beginners on a budget.

  • APS-C format cameras have smaller sensors, collect light less efficiently, and produce less pleasing bokeh.
