Canon EOS 77D:
Canon today has announced the EOS 77D (known as the EOS 9000D in some regions), which will sit between the company’s established Rebel line of entry-level DSLRs and the more enthusiast-oriented 80D. (The 77D is essentially the replacement to the Rebel T6s/EOS 760D.) But despite sitting below the 80D in the lineup, it shares that more advanced model’s 24.2MP sensor with Dual Pixel autofocus and adds an updated Digic 7 processor to the mix. Users opting to focus using the optical viewfinder will be greeted with a 45-point all-cross-type AF system and 7650-pixel RGB+IR metering system, which work together for better accuracy and subject recognition.
Canon EOS Rebel T7i:
Canon is taking the wraps off its latest entry-level DSLR, the EOS Rebel T7i (known as the EOS 800D in most regions and the Kiss X9i in Japan). It’s the highest specified of the beginner-friendly line and maintains the same 24.4MP resolution CMOS sensor as its T6i predecessor. What is new is a 45-point all cross-type autofocus system used for viewfinder shooting, and Dual Pixel AF in live view, a pretty serious upgrade over the T6i’s 19-point system.
Canon EOS M6:
Canon’s newest mirrorless camera, the EOS M6, is a replacement for the entry-level EOS M3 and slides in directly under the enthusiast M5 (confused yet?).
It shares essentially all of the M5’s internal components, including the 24MP APS-C sensor with Dual Pixel CMOS AF, Digic 7 processor and 3″ touchscreen. It’s also capable of 1080/60p video capture and has Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth.
Differentiating factors between are limited to the built-in EVF on the M5 and the flip-up selfie screen on the M6. The M6 gains an additional top plate control dial compared to the M3, which should improve handling.
