Canon Rebel T6i Vs. T7i DSLR Cameras (Differences): Both of these Canon DSLRs use an APS-C sized imager, with a 1.6x lens conversion ratio. Both cameras take outstanding pictures and videos using the same 24.2 megapixel sensor, and have an external mic jack for video sound. Both have a fantastic flip-out touchscreen. Both models have Full HD 1080p video at 24p and 30p, but the T7i has a more advanced autofocus system, and updated electronics.

The main differences between the Canon T6i and T7i DSLRs are: The T7i is the first Canon Rebel camera with Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus technology. This autofocus technology is much faster and more accurate than previous systems. The T7i has a higher ISO (25600 vs. 12800), More Autofocus points (45 vs. 19) same as the 80D, a much faster processor (Digic 7 vs Digic 6), and less shutter lag. The T7i is faster at startup, has a faster burst rate (6 vs 4.8), and has a much larger raw picture buffer. The T7i gets better battery life when shooting stills ( 600 Vs. 440) shots. For video, the T7i has added a 60p mode for 1080p full HD recording. Compare all the features below in the Canon DSLR comparison chart below.

Bottom Line Canon Rebel T6i Vs. T7i: Both Canon DSLRs shoot excellent pictures and HD video, with the T6i being about $200 cheaper. The T7i with the more powerful Digic 7 chip and Dual Pixel CMOS auto-focusing will provide you with state of the art focusing. The T7i also provide better battery life for stills, a larger raw buffer, and higher ISO for low light photography. We believe for the extra money the T7i is definitely worth the upgrade.

Still Pictures: For still pictures, the Rebel T7i ISO is doubled to 25600 (better low light performance), less shutter lag, burst mode is increased, and autofocus points have more than doubled to 45 (all cross-points). Canon added its Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus technology to the T7i.

Shooting Video: The T7i is also superior for shooting video, as you get a much more responsive AF system, aided by the faster Digic 7 chip, and Dual Pixel CMOS AF is installed, which is fast and accurate for video. If you have the extra money, the T7i is more than worth its current price under $700 (Body only), especially if shooting video.


Upgrade Option to Canon Rebel T7i: A big step up from the Canon T6i is the T7i, the latest Rebel camera, which more than doubles the autofocus points to 45, and adds Canon’s best Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus technology. These autofocus enhancements help not only picture taking, but are very important for videography. The camera also upgrades to Digic 7 processor, ISO doubles to 25,600 (better in low light), and adds Bluetooth connectivity.
