« on: February 14, 2017, 11:02:37 PM »

New DSLR Additions are Joined by New Compact EF-S Lens and Canon’s First-Ever Remote Utilizing Bluetooth® Technology3


MELVILLE, N.Y., February 14, 2017 – Developed and designed to meet the varying needs of entry-level and advanced amateur photographers, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced two new additions to the celebrated EOS system – the EOS Rebel T7i DSLR camera, which adds to the popular Rebel series of entry-level DSLR cameras, and the EOS 77D DLSR camera, which represents a new category of cameras for advanced amateur photographers. Canon also introduced today the new EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens and Wireless Remote Control BR-E1, as well as added functionality for the Canon Connect Station CS100. “In what marks the 30th year since the introduction of the Canon EOS System, the announcement today of these two new DSLR cameras exhibits Canon’s commitment to providing our customers with the tools they need to grow their passion for capturing the best possible pictures of the moments in time that mean the most to them, or inspire them to one day shoot professionally,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A.







Focused on Innovation


The EOS Rebel T7i and EOS 77D both feature an optical viewfinder with a 45-point All Cross-type AF system* to help enable more precise focusing. In live view mode, both cameras utilize Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF to deliver the world’s fastest AF focusing speed of 0.03 seconds.1 This technical achievement allows users to find their subject, focus accurately, and capture the shot more quickly than ever before. Both models also have built-in Wi-Fi®2, NFC3 and Bluetooth®4 technology for easy transfer of images.


In addition to the focusing enhancements, common features of the EOS Rebel T7i and EOS 77D cameras include:



  • Optical Viewfinder with a 45-point All Cross-type AF System*

  • Fast and accurate Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Phase-detection

  • 24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) Sensor

  • DIGIC 7 Image Processor, ISO 100–25600

  • Built-in Wi-Fi®2, NFC3 and Bluetooth®4 technology

  • Vari-angle Touch Screen, 3.0-inch LCD

  • Movie Electronic IS

  • HDR Movie & Time-Lapse Movie

  • High-speed Continuous Shooting at up to 6.0 frames per second (fps)


Canon EOS Rebel T7i Camera


The EOS Rebel T7i is the first camera in the EOS Rebel series with a 45-point, all cross-type AF system* within the Optical Viewfinder. It is also the first in the series with Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Phase-detection and the first with a DIGIC 7 Image Processor. Creative filters for both still images and video will allow users to customize the look and feel of their content in new and imaginative ways.


When designing the new EOS Rebel T7i, Canon took into consideration feedback from entry-level photographers who expressed interest in learning to go beyond the program mode of a DSLR camera. Users will now be able to see on-screen how switching modes on the mode dial or tweaking settings can alter the image they are about to capture, guiding photographers on their way to capturing more compelling images, such as ones with a shallower depth-of-field or being able to give moving-subjects a frozen or flowing look.


The Canon EOS Rebel T7i is scheduled to be available in April 2017 for an estimated retail price $749.99** for the body only, $899.99** with the new EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens and $1,299.00** with the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens respectively. For more information please visit, usa.canon.com/eosrebelt7i.


Canon EOS 77D Camera


For advanced amateur photographers looking to expand their knowledge and experience with DSLR cameras, Canon’s new EOS 77D is the ideal next step camera for them. The EOS 77D represents a new category of advanced amateur EOS cameras, a step above the Rebel series. Users of the EOS 77D DSLR camera will benefit from features like the 7650-pixel RBG+IR Metering Sensor, similar to the one found in the EOS 80D camera and Anti-Flicker shooting mode to help combat the on-and-off repetitive flickering from artificial lights found in high-school gyms or auditoriums. The EOS 77D also features a top LCD panel and quick control dial for photographers who desire quicker and easier access to changing and controlling settings on the camera.


The Canon EOS 77D is scheduled to be available in April 2017 for an estimated retail price $899.99** for the body only, $1,049.00** with the new EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens and $1,499.00** with the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens respectively. For more information please visit, usa.canon.com/eos77d.


EF-S Lens and Remote Accessory Utilizing Bluetooth® Technology


The new Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens is nearly 20 percent smaller than the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, without sacrificing image quality. Features of the lens include:



  • Compact-size, Standard Zoom Lens with High Image Quality

  • Lead Screw-type STM

  • Image Stabilization at up to 45 Stops of Shake Correction

  • Stylish Design


The Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens is scheduled to be available in early April 2017 for an estimated retail price of $249.99**. For more information please visit, usa.canon.com/efs1855stm.


In addition, Canon is introducing it’s first-ever remote utilizing Bluetooth® technology3, the Wireless Remote Control BR-E1. This new remote allows photographers to capture images from within a 16-foot radius of the camera. This camera accessory is useful for photographers who are looking to capture images remotely in situations where there could be issues with signal reception or line-of-sight to the camera. The Canon Wireless Remote Control BR-E1 will be compatible with both the EOS Rebel T7i and EOS 77D cameras. The Canon BR-E1 is schedule to be available in April 2017 for an estimated retail price of $50.00**.


CS100 Firmware Update

Both the EOS Rebel T7i and EOS 77D cameras are compatible with the Canon Connect Station CS100 device, a go-to-photo and video hub that allows family and friends a way to quickly and easily store, manage view and share unforgettable memorable moment’s wirelessly6. Canon is also announcing today a firmware update to the Canon Connect Station CS100 device and mobile application. The firmware update includes the following improvements:



  • Compatibility for select Canon and non-Canon cameras, with a wider range of supported file formats7

  • Support for video playback of computer-edited movies8

So atleast on this camera Canon has kept the naming scheme same across the globe.
Also this camera still uses that tiny tunnelly pentamirror viewfinder, no USB type-C, crappy 1080p video with no 4k, still ancient UHS-I spec SD Slot, tiny ass battery.

From the specs, it looks like to me an 80D that is 1fps slower.

This statement caught my eye, I need to find note 1 to see what the gotcha is.

 both cameras utilize Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF to deliver the world’s fastest AF focusing speed of 0.03 seconds.1 

Is this true for the 80D?  I did not follow the hype for it closely and would have missed it. Speeds this fast make the Live View mode into a very practical everyday mode for those who want large sensor mirrorless.  Go to live mode and you essentially have mirrorless that works with all ef-s and EF lenses, or use it as a DSLR where you have a optical viewfinder, even though its not pentaprism.


Revised:

I found it:

1 Among all the interchangeable lens digital cameras incorporating the APS-C size image sensors with phase-difference detection AF on the image plane As of February 14th, 2017 (Researched by Canon). Calculated based on the resulting AF speed measured according to the CIPA guidelines. (Varies depending on the shooting conditions and the lenses used.) Internal measurement method. [Measurement conditions] Focusing brightness: EV 12 (room temperature, ISO 100) Shooting mode: M Lens used: EF-S18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM (at focal length of 55mm) Live View shooting AF method: Live 1-point AF (with Center AF point) AF operation: One-Shot AF

Strangely enough I have never found the need to use a custom mode, and I don't consider myself an amazeur anymore. To be honest, as Av just matches all my needs, I never even tried to fiddle about custom modes either....

These announcement notice type specs never tell enough of the story. Has to end up in reviewer's hands to confirm things which I've never seen mentioned:
- pentamirror vs prism (esp given this form factor)
- buffer depth (60D is a perfect example of fps being jack all if it's slow flush)
- AFMA
- Focus modes (e.g. AF point expansion?)
probably much more ...
Hurry up Canon and do something with your sensors! :P

From the specifications this looks like a great camera, let down by a poor viewfinder (I don't do video, therefore I reserve judgment). Nevertheless it should achieve its desired goal, namely to tempt those considering a "Rebel" to up-buy and to allow a salesman1 to up-sell anyone considering a 77D to an 80D simply by allowing the purchaser to look through the viewfinder. Actually, I'm not 100% convinced that the 80D viewfinder is good enough to be immediately noticeable as better to the uninitiated; 7D series: maybe, fullframe: definitely... Viewfinders are one of the least appreciated specifications for the first time camera buyer and yet are your primary photographic interface.

[1Assuming anyone still goes to look at a camera before they purchase, or should If there are any high street shops left to get a demo at, before purchasing online  ;)]

Its 4 stops, the five was a reference to a foot note, and managed to get changed to the same sized font as the rest.  That happened to me when I copied some text with the footnote in it as well.

Here is is:

"The new Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens is nearly 20 percent smaller than the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, without sacrificing image quality. Features of the lens include:
  • Compact-size, Standard Zoom Lens with High Image Quality
  • Lead Screw-type STM
  • Image Stabilization at up to 45 Stops of Shake Correction
  • Stylish Design"
Here is footnote 5
"5 Based on CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) standards. Testing performed using the EOS 7D Mark II digital SLR camera at a focal length of 55mm, 35mm-equivalent 88mm. The number of stops may vary based on the camera model used."

The 80D/70D specs are explicit in listing AF Microadjustment as a feature.

The 77D spec make no mention of AFMA

sounds like a strong use case for USB dock compatible lenses (Tamron, Sigma). AFMA adjustment  in lens firmware compensate for the absence of in camera AFMA option.

The 77D spec make no mention of AFMA

It means that if you can typically handhold for a 1/50 of a second, then with this IS on you'll be able to handhold for an exposure as long as 17.8 million years.

Actually, it got me too, as it was displayed as the number 45 on my phone until I clicked to see comments.
