Which Camera Has Better Connectivity Options, the Canon T7 or T7i?

The Canon Rebel T7 and the Canon Rebel T7i are DSLR cameras that look the same. In other words, both cameras come to you with the same degree of resemblance. Similarly, it was the latest model, the t7i, that was launched earlier than the t7.

To be more precise, the t7i was launched in February 2017, while the t7 model was released in February 2018. The t7 is more of an enhanced version of the t6. It is the t7i that comes to you with the latest degree of technological sophistication and poise as compared to the t7 model.

In this online guide, we will particularly have a run-down into the connectivity issues covering T7 vs. T7i. A few of the other enhanced features covering both of the models will also be taken up for discussion.

Connectivity Covering Both Models

Connectivity Covering Both Models

The connectivity of design equipment is basically the ability of the equipment being able to adapt itself to the external signals or stimuli the environment gives to it. In this context, the connectivity potential of a camera relates to the extent to which it can communicate with the environment. In other words, you look at how it is able to respond to objects effectively and turn them into life-inspiring pictures or videos. Henceforth, most people look for sharp connectivity features when it comes to buying cameras for the very first time.

The latest t7i supports powerful microphone ports, and this is a feature that is extremely necessary to improve the quality of your audio recordings after all. When you connect the t7i cam to a powerfully functional external microphone, the audio recordings and the video inputs can beautifully synchronize with one another to give you a rave quality of full-length videos you ideally plan to shoot. If you look at the t7 model, the equipment does not support a mic input, and the model works on WiFi connectivity. Therefore, in the ideal sense of the word, the t7i model has better connectivity options than the t7. In a nutshell, we have seen how these cameras compare in terms of their connectivity issues.

Helping You Explore the Extra Feature T7i Has

Apart from excellent image resolution, censoring mechanisms, and AF, there is one more brownie point the t7i model has over its t7 model. Do you know what it is? It is the interactive touch-screen facility the t7i has. With respect to connectivity again, the t7i has a Bluetooth port, and you can easily connect the cam to nearby Bluetooth devices.

Again, the t7i has the in-built Near Field Communication or NFC connectivity over its t7 model, while T7 works on basic Wi-Fi connectivity. The t7i is, therefore, considered a smart camera wherein everything happens at the touch of a figure. In the case of a T7 model, the cam operates with manual plugs and controls.

Overall Points of Comparison Between T7 and T7i

With respect, these are the basic points of comparison. Let us have a brief run-down into each one of them:

1. Better JPEG Resolution

As the t7i model uses 45 cross points on the AF focus finder, images are captured using a better level of clarity, and a higher degree of detailing is applied by the AF mechanism while latching on to intricate objects that require attention. In the case of a t7 model, you have about 10 focus points. Hence, manual intervention is required to nagle objects correctly, and only a professional photographer who knows how to handle the AF focus by the camera’s eye point will be able to take photo shoots or videography flawlessly.

2. Other Features of The AF

AF also stands for ‘Auto Focus.’ As the AF mechanism is at its superlative best in a t7i model, you get a better ‘Live-View focus. This is especially useful when you want to take video shoots for wedding ceremonies, graduation get-together parties, or prom events, wherein you want a video shoot of live moments. Whereas in the case of a t7 model, you may have to adjust to ‘Quick focus’ mode manually. However, this intervention may cause a lot of snags while you aim for video shooting live moments.

3. Enlarged Viewfinder

As the AF mechanism for a t7i model comes to you with a great buffering system, you get enlarged images quickly and precisely. This way, you lend larger-than-life effects to live photo shoots, thereby covering every inch of the object that is out there on display. The larger viewfinder imaging systems help the cam latch onto its objects more intricately. While with the t7 model, you may have to adjust the angling of the object now and then. Also, manual plugs or controls have to be applied to latch onto the object under the display.

4. Touch Screen with T7i

The t7i model gives you a touch screen wherein you can change the angle according to the head height of the object. You can also tilt the touch screen facing you. This way, the cam is highly suitable for great selfies with friends and family. In the case of a t7 model, the LCD remains static and does not provide enhanced touchscreen abilities.

5. Faster Buffer Clearing with Better Sound Coping Mechanisms

The cache or buffer files can be cleared faster to other forms of software using the Bluetooth port or other external devices, while t7 operates with Wi-Fi. Again, the t7i comes to you with better sound coping mechanisms. Henceforth, clear sounds of surrounding objects are well covered while you video-shoot live events. With respect to t7, you have manual plugs or controls, and you may have to change the mode to retain soundproofing abilities.

Summing It Up

Overall, we have seen how connectivity flawlessly works on a t7i model over that of a t7 model. Other basic differences between both models have also been discussed here at length.

T7 is just the successor of T6, while T7i gets all the sophisticated features a DSLR must have. T7 and T7i were launched a year apart from each other, and the models look almost similar appearance-wise.

So, which is the feature you love about T7i?
