Canon upgrades their most popular models on a very regular basis, and often they add some really cool features.
Well, you have come to the right place!
First, a quick comparison table to see all the specs, then a more detailed review of the differences (and similarities) to help you make a quick and easy decision.
Let's jump right in...
These two popular cameras from Canon are very similar, so let me make your life a little easier and highlight the main differences, and why they matter:
All in all, the T7i is a bit of an upgrade to the T6, but not huge. Some people will love the extra options, the faster auto-focus and the longer battery life. But, keep in mind, it also costs (normally) a couple of hundred bucks more. As with any new tech, the older model suddenly looks cheap!
Aside from all those differences, what do these cameras have in common?
It is no sur
prise that this level of DSLR is really popular with beginner or amateur photographers, because you get so much bang for your buck. And now, with the T7i upgrade, you can take it to the next level too.

Canon T6i Review
If you are just starting out and not sure you want to get into photography, or you have a budget limit, then I would just stick with the T6i. The upgrade is not big enough to worry about for most people.
However, if you can afford the latest model, and you want to get into photography seriously, or need a little image stabilization or faster burst or frame rate, then the T7i is definitely the way to go. Before you know it (probably 2018) there will be yet another upgrade, so it pays to get the latest if you can. At least that is always my philosophy.
