Digital Camera World Verdict

The Canon Rebel T7/EOS 2000D is the cheapest DSLR you can still buy new today. Its 24MP sensor is on the same level as most modern rivals, though the basic autofocus and slow burst mode mean it's not great for action, and it only shoots 1080 video with slow contrast AF, so it's not idea for video either. But for new photographers who want to learn how to use a 'proper' camera, this is still a good buy.

The Canon Rebel T7  (known as the EOS 2000D in Europe, and as the EOS 1500D in Australasia) is essentially a 24-megapixel replacement for Canon’s previous cheapest camera, the EOS 1300D (Rebel T6). It’s also one step up from Canon’s even cheaper Rebel T100 (EOS 4000D), though that model is no longer on general sale.
