At first, you may be wondering why Canon would create a DSLR that sits between their Rebel and the 80D. And it's a great question. The best answer appears to be its super-charged autofocusing technology. Here's how Canon puts it:
The EOS 77D features an optical viewfinder with a 45-point All Cross-type AF system to help enable more precise focusing. In live view mode, the camera utilizes Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF to deliver the world's fastest AF focusing speed of 0.03 seconds. This technical achievement allows users to find their subject, focus accurately, and capture the shot more quickly than ever before.
Then add these highlight specifications:
- 24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
- DIGIC 7 Image Processor
- 3.0" 1.04m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen
- Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 60 fps
- Up to 6 fps Shooting and ISO 51200
- Built-In Wi-Fi with NFC, Bluetooth
- RGB+IR 7560-Pixel Metering Sensor
So, you have a high performance DSLR that will be available for $899 - a good price for these specs.
The EOS 77D should be a tempting choice for weekend sports shooters who need this type of accuracy and responsiveness to capture the action.
You can preorder the Canon EOS 77D now. Expected availability is March 30, 2017.
