Canon EOS 77D Review – The Camera

If it feels like the EOS camera lineup from Canon continues to expand you definitely aren’t alone.

This legendary camera manufacturer has been adding new models to the lineup pretty consistently (while refreshing older options) and the relatively new Canon EOS 77D has been turning heads ever since it was first released.

One of the most impressive cameras designed for photography enthusiasts and professionals working on a budget, there’s a lot to really love about the Canon EOS 77D (and a couple of shortcomings) – all of which we dive a little bit deeper into in this quick Canon EOS 77D review.

Shall we get started?

 

Overview

The Canon EOS 77D has launched right alongside the entry-level 800 D in a similar way to how the Canon EOS 750 D and 760 D launched a couple of years ago.

Both of these new cameras look almost identical, include nearly the exact same camera internals, and are designed to appeal to almost the same group of people – experienced photography enthusiasts and professionals that just don’t have the budget for a souped-up camera just yet.

The major difference here, of course, is that the Canon EOS 77D has quite a bit more features for serious photographers to take advantage of with a lot more controls (including physical controls) on the camera to tinker and toy with.

 

Features

The Canon EOS 77D camera is built almost entirely around a 24.2 megapixel APS-C dual pixel CMOS sensor that snaps absolutely gorgeous photographs in most every lighting condition imaginable, including some pretty low light situations.

The image processor is the DIGIC 7, generally regarded as one of the better image processors you’ll find on the market today – not just in Canon products but across the spectrum of higher tier cameras as well.

Shutter speeds are blazing fast on this camera and the autofocus technology is really dialed in as well. Manual focus and manual zoom options can be taken advantage of, though, for those that want a lot more control over the quality and composition of their images.

A three inch, multiple angle touchscreen display with over a million dots help photographers lineup shots perfectly but also see instant feedback about the images and the video they are capturing right there on the screen.

Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity are built right into the Canon EOS 77D as well, with an option to set up low-energy Bluetooth connections, too if you’re looking to control and operate your device from something like your phone or tablet.

 

At the end of the day, the folks at Canon really were able to shoehorn some pretty spectacular pieces of camera technology into a relatively compact body with the Canon EOS 77D.

 

Image Quality

Thanks to that oversized and next generation image sensor from Canon we highlighted above the still images you’ll be able to capture are going to be nothing short of spectacular.

Even in lowlight situations the sensor is going to soak up whatever light is available to make sure that you get crisp, sharp, and beautifully colored photos every single time you snap the shutter closed.

Canon technology allows you to dial up the ISO numbers pretty high on the Canon EOS 77D without introducing a lot of noise. You’ll appreciate the ability to really fine-tune the way your camera takes pictures when you’re using this piece of tech, that’s for sure.

One of the shortcomings of the Canon EOS 77D, though – and something most every Canon EOS 77D review mentions – is a lack of 4K video capture.

You’ll be able to shoot in 1080p high definition with this system but you won’t be able to capture native 4K video right out of the box. That’s a little bit disappointing considering how many other cameras at this price point have 4K video ready to roll, especially with a lot of other Canon cameras including 4K as well.

 

Pros

  • Unbelievably crisp and razor-sharp image quality across the board
  • 45 point automatic focus system is really dialed in
  • Touchscreen interface is gorgeous, easy to read even in bright conditions, and highly responsive

 

Cons

  • The lack of 4K video is immediately noticeable
  • Some find the body to be a bit “plasticky”

 

Final Verdict

Canon has a legendary reputation for producing very capable pieces of camera technology and you’ll find that the Canon EOS 77D ranks right up there with some of their best hardware ever.

The polished touchscreen, the intuitive and easy to use controls and interface, and the 45 point automatic focus system are all things that really help to separate this camera from the competition.

The lack of 4K video capabilities is disappointing to be sure (and the viewfinder is a little bit limited), but that’s really the only nitpicky issue when you’re talking about the Canon EOS 77D.

When you boil things down it’s hard not to come away feeling very, very impressed with the Canon EOS 77D setup. There’s a reason why you’ll find so many glowingly positive Canon EOS 77D reviews out there today (including this one) – and that’s because this is one great camera!

    Stunning little camera. I’ve owned countless canon EOS cameras over the year, from the early 500N days in 35mm film all the way through a variety of models. Always on the AP-C sensor.This was an upgrade from a 40D and the difference is marked. The images are clear and striking. Control is good. The flip out screen with live view mode means taking candid shots and shots in strange angles really easy.The only two letdowns for this are1) the plastic body compared to prior metal bodies. This is a compromise you make when you buy this over say an 80D. If you’re a semi-pro user and will be exposing your camera to more extreme conditions then you’ll definitely want to invest in a more solid camera with better weather-proofing.2) there is now Canon battery grip available for it. I’ve always bought the grips not so much for the battery life but for the increased girth and the vertical release. I am sad that there’s not one available (there is a 3rd party one which I may try.)If however you’re an occasional user and want lots of features for not a lot of money, then as far as I’m concerned, this is a great little camera.

    I think this is a great camera for someone looking to learn manual controls and take better pictures, either moving up from your phone or a basic compact camera. The 18-135 IS USM kit lens is very good as far as kit lenses go and will allow you to take good pictures and video with image stabilisation and quiet focusing while having a very useful range. It is very good value as a kit in the £900 price point which is what I paid for it, considering this lens goes for over £400 retail.The camera menus are logical and easy to understand, usability with the articulating touchscreen is great, Autofocus points are well spread out in the viewfinder and Dual pixel AF is fantastic for video. I would suggest to get used to the viewfinder when taking pictures, it is a much better camera in viewfinder mode especially if you want to use fast shutter speeds. There are a lot of youtube videos around that will guide you through the setup, Tony Northrup’s video is highly recommended.This camera is also a very good stepping stone so you can accumulate some good EF L-series lenses that will later allow you to move up to a full frame camera. Canon has the biggest variety of lenses and the second hand market is a great place to find bargains on professional quality lenses. This is what will make the biggest impact on your pictures rather than the body.The wifi functionality is great, I can connect it to an ipad or a computer and control the camera from there or view the pictures as well when they are taken. This means you can tether wirelessly your camera to your tablet or computer and see the pictures as they are taken! Great stuff.I uploaded some pictures taken with the 18-135 IS USM lens in a typical zoo scenario so you can judge for yourself. They have not been processed in any way, these are straight out of the camera. In general this is a very good all round camera that will serve you well. Compared to the 80D, this has a newer processor, images are a bit brighter and so is video. I would still go with the 77D and maybe trade it in for the 90D when it comes out in the future depending on what features it will have.
