New Canon Cameras April 2017



Canon introduced three new cameras for sale in April:
$749 entry-level Rebel T7i;
$899 prosumer-focused 77D;
$779 mirrorless camera, the M6.

Things that are interesting to me:
None are in 4k
Cameras all have wifi, bluetooth and NFC
You can take 6 stills a second. Way way faster than my old t2i.

Things that I don't understand:
It has a cheap wireless remote to take pictures or zoom, but it says nothing about focus. Why would you do all that but not let people focus with it? Isn't focusing like.. THE most important wireless functionality?

Exciting to me:
A cheap wide angle zoom lens is coming! It even has image stabilization.

They're entry-level cameras. Hence no 4k, focus on quick shooting and wireless connectivity. Much more important for someone on holiday to wirelessly zoom and press the shutter. Focus doesn't matter so much given it's more than likely to be set on auto focus...

A huge amount of entry-level users who buy 'cheap' DSLRs because they're 'better picture quality than a compact' never move the mode slider off Full Auto/green square
