What customers say about "Key Specs"
Canon EOS Rebel T7i EF-S 18-55 IS STM Kit
  • Nothing bad at all to say about this camera, the only thing that is missing is a full frame sensor.
  • Great camera, has same sensor but also the newer processor than more expensive options, takes great photos and video, low light suffers slightly but due to kit lens I assume.
  • The T7i features 45 all cross type sensors and shoots up to 6 frames per second in photo mode perfect for shooting your childs weekend soccer match.
  • Purchased T7 after reviewing specs on more expensive canons. The 45 focal points allows for a very clear and sharp picture. I am very satisfied with picture quality and ease of use.
  • The STM lens is very smooth and quite when using auto focus with video.
Canon EOS Rebel T6i Digital SLR with EF-S 18-55mm IS STM Lens
  • If you want a better camera you will need one with a full frame sensor. This one has the second largest sensor so it works very well and is significantly cheaper.
  • Love the camera and lens that came with it. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a new camera.
  • My daughter is starting photography this has 2 lens range options, SD card, usb cord great bundle options
  • The camera and lens package is easy to set up and easy to use for someone with an amateur ability.
  • Great camera and lens combination for sports action like water sports. Not all lenses have image stabilization that both of these have.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Canon EOS Rebel T7i EF-S 18-55 IS STM Kit
  • The next advantage is something I already touched on earlier. The size and bulk. These prosumer line cameras are typically much smaller and lighter than their pro-grade cousins.
  • The camera is fairly light weight for its size too. But I had to get a bigger camera bag, of course.
  • I enjoy this camera alot. Great for videos and photos with a nice selection lenses. But for the price it's pretty hefty . Especially with the alternative cameras that have 4k or lighter weight.
  • The picture clarity, battery life, handling, weight of the camera, features are all great!
Canon EOS Rebel T6i Digital SLR with EF-S 18-55mm IS STM Lens
  • Easy to use, light weight, Canon quality for a really great price.
  • Its light weight even with the lens attached makes it comfortable even after long periods of use.
  • Just took the new camera on two trips and the pics are much clearer than previous camera. It is smaller and lighter weight but with all the features.

What customers say about "Imaging"
Canon EOS Rebel T7i EF-S 18-55 IS STM Kit
  • This was purchased for our marketing department. Great features at this price point. Great images right out of the camera.
  • This is by far the best camera I've ever used very user friendly and the images are stunning.

  • Very good quality and some improve previous version T6i lower ISO and most of them the same but new CPU is faster
  • The 45 focal points allows for a very clear and sharp picture.
Canon EOS Rebel T6i Digital SLR with EF-S 18-55mm IS STM Lens
  • Currently on our first trip with this camera and very impressed with it’s performance. Shooting mostly architecture and interior spaces, but city parks also. Sharp images!
  • This camera takes beautiful images and videos. Glad I decided to go with the T6i.
  • Great Camera for beginner. Auto focus is Great for those who don't know how to use manual shooting mode. Pallet is slightly overexposed, but overall good.
  • Quick and sharp autofocus for the best picture on the go; or take your time and manual focus it yourself and still get the best picture.
  • If your buying separate lenses be certain to pay a little more for stabilization makes a big difference especially when using a zoom.

What customers say about "Display"
Canon EOS Rebel T7i EF-S 18-55 IS STM Kit
  • The screen and photo quality are both high end (like professional level stuff).
  • Very Easy to use. I never had a personal camera before. It has automatic mode. Easy to use because it's touch screen
  • The camera is easy to use, the flip screen is also a plus. I would defiantly recommend this camera for beginner and intermediate.
  • The touch screen LCD makes the use of the camera even easier!!!
  • I'm also really enjoying the moveable LCD screen. I can adjust it to any position I need it, and I can flip it 180 degrees to show others the photos I had taken. Naturally, when you flip the screen, the photo will flip too.

  • The camera works great and we love the screens ability to flip around.

What customers say about "Power"
Canon EOS Rebel T7i EF-S 18-55 IS STM Kit
  • I was able to use all of my lenses from my previous Rebel. But not the batteries or the battery grip. But that's not a huge deal, as it was time to replace those as well.
  • Camera is amazing life long battery. Good product.
  • The picture clarity, battery life, handling, weight of the camera, features are all great!
  • Very, very disappointed that there is no battery grip for this camera.
Canon EOS Rebel T6i Digital SLR with EF-S 18-55mm IS STM Lens
  • Ease of use for beginning photographers, but with enough power to grow with one's skills.
  • Battery charger and screen defective when I got it and seller (CSNY) was so rude about it when I tried to return it, practically yelling on at me on the phone.
  • The only issue I had found so far is the Battery Life. Expect to charge it every few days. In Medium Use. I strongly recommend second Battery.
  • The only negative is the price Cannon levies on buying a spare battery. They have chip coded their batteries to discourage using after market batteries and they charge a ridiculous price for theirs. It's called being "greedy". But their camera is awesome!
