The Canon Rebel T7i is collecting positive reviews everywhere. It’s easy to use yet powerful enough to satisfy the absolute beginner as well as the more experienced photographer.
Photographic authority DPReview makes no exception, lauding the Rebel T7i “guide modes”, which aim at those photographers who still want to learn the basics of photography. It seems Canon made good job implementing the guide mode.
Guide modes are pretty common on cameras of this type but I’ve rarely seen one that helps with learning how the camera operates beyond guide mode, rather than leaving you stuck in a simplified mode forever. This, combined with the consistency of performance between shooting through the optical viewfinder and rear screen (in terms of both speed and effectiveness), makes the T7i one of the easiest DSLRs to use if you’re not familiar with their operation. It also means it’s one of the easiest cameras to capture video with.
