Canon T7i

Better for sports


The Canon Rebel T7i is a great option for yearbook staff with a limited budget. The camera uses a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor and employs a DIGIC 7 image processor. The camera’s accurate and speedy 45-point all cross-type autofocus system makes it suitable for capturing fast-moving subjects on the athletic field. Students will feel comfortable with its manual control and size. Student photographers will enjoy using the camera’s features and autofocus speed. As the adviser, you will benefit from the great photos your students will take. The T7i is a better yearbook camera than the T7, but falls short of the T8i.
