Bundle Overview: This Canon EOS Rebel T7i Video Creators kit includes the T7i DSLR camera body, the EF-S 18-55 IS STM zoom lens, RØDE Videomic GO On-camera Shotgun Microphone, and a 32 GB SanDisk Ultra UHS-I SDHC memory card. The camera body has a standard Canon EF mount, and is compatible with Canon EF and EF-S lenses.
Viewfinder: The Canon EOS Rebel T7i uses an eye-level SLR viewfinder with pentamirror with 0.82x magnification (w/50mm lens at infinity) for approximately 95% vertical and horizontal coverage. It has a -3.0 to +1.0 diopter adjustment so you can focus the viewfinder to suit your eyesight (with or without eyeglasses). When using the self-timer or remote control, when your eye does not cover the viewfinder eyepiece, stray light may enter the eyepiece and affect the exposure when the image is captured. To prevent this, you can use the supplied eyepiece cover, attached to the neck strap, to cover the eyepiece.
3" Clear View II LCD Touch Screen Monitor: The EOS Rebel T7i features a flip-out, Vari-angle Touch Panel 3" Clear View II LCD monitor that allows you to shoot at a variety of angles. It has a 3:2 aspect ratio and approximately 1,040,000 dots for Live View composition and viewing recorded images. The screen has the same capacitive touch technology as today's popular mobile devices, and delivers intuitive touch panel operation. Two-finger gestures (multi-touch) can be used for zooming or changing images, menu and quick control settings can be accessed, and focus point and shutter release can be activated with the touch of a fingertip. The LCD monitor offers 100% viewing coverage and 7 brightness levels to choose from.
Live View: The Live View Function enables viewing your subjects directly on the camera's 3" LCD monitor. The camera allows you to magnify any part of the scene 5x or 10x for precise manual focusing. You can choose one of two grid overlay options for the LCD screen to help you line up vertical and horizontal lines. The camera can be controlled remotely via a computer through a USB connection, or wirelessly with the optional RC-6 remote controller.
24.2 Megapixel CMOS Sensor: Canon's large-area CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) sensor captures images with exceptional clarity and tonal range, and offers approximately 25.8 million total pixels and 24.2 million effective pixels. This APS-C-sized sensor (22.3mm x 14.9mm) has the same 3:2 ratio as film cameras, enabling an effective angle of view that is 1.6x the normal EF Lens focal length.
DIGIC 7 Image Processor: The Rebel T7i is equipped with Canon's DIGIC 7 Image Processor. The DIGIC 7 works with the CMOS sensor to deliver images with great detail. Improved light sensitivity allows you to shoot at higher resolution with less noise in dark conditions. The camera can achieve higher ISO sensitivity (up to ISO 25600), and can shoot continuously at up to 6 frames per second.
Image Recording: The camera records still images in JPEG and RAW formats. You can choose from the following image sizes: Large, Medium, Small 1, and Small 2. For each resolution (except Small 2), you can set the compression to Fine or Normal. For RAW images, you can record only at 6000 x 4000 resolution. You can set the camera to RAW + JPEG and record a RAW image and a Large Fine JPEG image simultaneously.
Aspect Ratio: The camera's image sensor has an aspect ratio of 3:2. You can choose to record still images in 3:2, 4:3, 16:9, and 1:1 aspect ratios. This gives you the option of selecting any of the following image sizes:
