"You know how when you take a photo on an iPhone, and the picture flips itself into a mirrored version of the picture? Is there a way how we can change a setting in a Canon t7i so when you take a picture, it does not mirror?"

Hi Ryleigh,
Thanks for your question about a camera setting on the Canon t7i that will give you a mirrored image. No, there is not a setting on the Rebel t7i that will flip the image horizontally to mimic the image you see of yourself in the mirror.

The t7i is an SLR-single lens reflex-camera that has a prism with mirrors. That flips the image to allow us to see the "normal" scene, looking through the camera or on the t7i LCD screen in front of you in the same way as you see it while viewing with the naked eye.

Many enthusiast and pro photographers will flip the image afterwards in Photoshop or other software when they want to get creative. You have the option of flipping the image either vertically or horizontally.The other fun use of mirroring as a creative technique with your t7i that's great to try is looking for reflective surfaces.

Ryleigh, feel free to comment back if you want to give more detail on what you're trying to accomplish with your t7i.

Main Difference Between Canon t7 and t7i

Hi Bruce,

What's the main difference between the Canon Rebel t7 and t7i cameras?
Thanks!


Thanks for asking for a comparison of the Rebel t7 and t7i cameras by Canon. Although there's only a single letter differentiating their names, these cameras are quite different in many ways. My quick answer will give you the 5 most important differences.

1. Canon t7 vs t7i Focusing

The t7 lacks dual pixel focusing. That's a big deal. The t7 has a paltry 9 focusing points, using an outdated technology. Canon came up with the dual pixel focusing and you should want it the Canon DSLR you own.

2. Frame Rate

The t7 can only shoot at 3.0 framers per second. The t7i shoots at 6.0 frames per second. Although 6.0 frames per second doesn't qualify the t7i as a great professional sports camera, you can get great action photos of your kids soccer game or deer prancing across a field. The t7's frame rate matches the technology of the 5D (Mark I) released more than 15 years ago in 2005.

3. LCD Screen

The t7 has a fixed LCD screen and is not touch sensitive. The t7i is fully articulating and is touch sensitive, giving you the familiar finger tip actions that we're all used to having with our cell phones.

4. t7 vs t7i Price

This is the only spec where the t7 is the better choice. You can check current prices on Amazon by using the link below, but right now the price difference is about $350 less for the t7 than the t7i. The t7 costs a little bit more than half of the t7i.

5. Processor

The t7 uses a Digic 4+ processor while the t7i uses the much more advanced Digic 7 processor. That gives you higher ISO settings, less noise, improved color accuracy, and it's much faster.

There are several other smaller differences between these 2 cameras, like a microphone port, time lapse recording, blue tooth, antiflicker, and battery life. The 5 listed above are the most important differences between the t7i and the t7.

I hope this was a helpful answer to your questions about the important differences between the Rebel t7i and t7.

Thanks,
Bruce

Issues With Picture Playback On Canon t7i

by Randy
(Louisville, Ky)



"I get red squares on picture playback on camera. Camera is T7i, and shooting in manual mode. Green focus square when taking pics. Don't know what setting to change to fix."

Thanks for your question, Randy. That's a fine camera. I'd have to see it to make a definitive comment. Can you photograph it up close with another camera or your cell phone? It's most likely just the focus point indicator, which you can turn off by going into the t7i menu and exploring the focus settings for shooting and for viewing.

Or call Canon directly: 1-800-652-2666 Monday-Friday: 8:00 am to 12:00 am
Saturday: 10:00 am to 8:00 pm.

Let me know if I can be of any further help.

Bruce
