Canon updates their mid-range APS-C DSLR with a new processor and new name
Would a camera by any other name smell as sweet? The Canon EOS 77D is essentially the Rebel T7s as a mid-range consumer option.
By Hillary Grigonis, Last updated on: 2/24/2017

The Canon EOS 77D is a mid-range consumer DSLR that sits between the new EOS 7Di and the older 80D, with the same sensor but a mid-level feature list.

The EOS 77D sports a 24 megapixel APS-C sensor. That's paired with the Digic 7 processor, an update that the 80D doesn't even have, which gives the camera a top burst speed of 6 fps. The camera also sports a new Dual Pixel autofocus system for faster, more accurate focus.

On the outside, the camera doesn't have weather-sealing but offers a more advanced control scheme than the cheaper T7i in a smaller profile than the 80D. Bluetooth is also included.

The kit lens was updated with a smaller size -- but the trade-off is the lens isn't as fast, at f/4-5.6, so opting for the body-only and choosing a better lens may be a good choice here.

The Canon EOS 77D is a nice mid-range option for enthusiasts with an updated processor and enhanced autofocus system. The DSLR is expected to list for $900 body-only or $1,050 with the new kit lens, slightly more than Nikon's mid-level enthusiast D5600 which is slower by 1 fps in burst mode.

Canon Reviews

Top quality optics, dependability, and convenience of use are just some of the reasons that customers choose Canon digital cameras. One of the top makers of digital cameras in the world today, Canon has attained a reputation for creating some of the best digital cameras and digital SLRs available on the market. Canon cameras are inevitably on the camera wish list of any consumer that desires a high quality camera.

Canon is not generally a cheap brand by any means. In spite of this, Canon digital cameras have achieved the best buy status. This proves that you get great value for the extra money. In the past few years, Canon has begun releasing several types that are more inexpensive, without cutting quality.

Canon cameras come in two main types—the smallest is the Powershot line, compact, point-and-shoot cameras that still maintain a reasonable level of image quality. Canon Powershot cameras range from budget point-and-shoots like the ELPH 115 to an advanced compact with a 1.5” sensor, the G1X Mark II. Typically, if you are going to buy a point-and-shoot on nothing but the reputation of the brand, Canon is a pretty safe bet.

The second type of Canon camera is the EOS line—the DSLRs. The EOS line has a solid reputation as well for performance across the board, including video. Canon has a wide range of options available too, from top of the line full frame professional models to small, entry-level DSLRs.

While other manufacturers are concentrating on mirrorless models and packing more power into smaller cameras, Canon doesn't seem to be following that trend exactly. They've released some smaller DSLRs like the SL1, but haven't been putting time into mirrorless models. Whether this is good or bad is a matter of personal opinion, but the models that are out there are, more often than not, solid performers.
