Review: Canon EOS 77D by DPReview
« on: April 19, 2017, 08:04:32 AM »

DPReview has completed their review of the Canon EOS 77D, a DSLR that has confused some people in the Canon world as to why it exists. While it is a rebadged “Rebel T7s”, it does seem to offer enough to make it a worthwhile option at this price point.


From DPReview:


Many newly released cameras are aiming ever further up-market. Part of this comes down to that market shrinking, but also, cameras have broadly become so good in recent years that there isn’t much room for more than two tiers of so-called ‘entry-level’ Rebels. Perhaps that’s what Canon was thinking, because for a camera that’s this capable and well-rounded, it would seem a disservice to bestow upon it a moniker that’s synonymous with the company’s more basic and pedestrian of interchangeable lens cameras.


The Canon EOS 77D is a well-rounded and well-sorted camera. The ergonomics are great, Live View performance is superb and Dual Pixel Autofocus continues to impress. The viewfinder is a little on the small side and it still doesn’t shoot 4K video, but as an all-around package for the enthusiast photographer, the EOS 77D deserves a look. Read the full review

A pity it doesn't have AFMA, which is a big no no for me. Is the potential for AFMA present but it has been  removed from visibility on the menus or would it require extra mechanical components? (Cheaper lines often have the same mechanics as more expensive but are deliberately crippled to justify a higher price for the up-market products.)

I don't think afma is a mechanical function.  Rather it's the camera's af processor adjusting the focus distance on based on the values put into the camera.  It might require the tiniest bit more processing, but I can't imagine that's really the reason.
