The Canon EOS Kiss X7i, successor to the EOS Kiss X6i (released in June 2012), incorporates an APS-C-size approximately 18.0-megapixel CMOS sensor and the high-speed DIGIC 5 image processor to deliver both high image quality and high-speed continuous shooting up to approximately five frames per second. The camera features standard ISO sensitivity of up to 12800,* which can be extended to ISO 25600, making possible exceptional images with reduced noise even in dimly lit environments. Furthermore, the Kiss X7i’s high-sensitivity performance allows faster shutter speeds for reduced hand-shake and subject blur not only when capturing photos in low-light conditions, but also during handheld shooting, when recording moving subjects, and when capturing photos in locations where flash photography is not allowed.
During video recording, the EOS Kiss X7i’s Movie Servo AF function tracks moving subjects for smooth focusing performance. In addition, when paired with the EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM interchangeable lens (released in April of 2013), equipped with a stepping motor, the camera achieves especially quiet, smooth AF operation.
The Canon EOS Kiss X7i employs a 9-point, all cross-type AF system that, during viewfinder shooting, makes possible excellent focusing results regardless of the image composition or subject pattern.
Offering a selection of seven Creative Filters, the EOS Kiss X7i newly allows users to preview the effects of each filter on the Live View screen before snapping a photo, enabling users to select the best filter for expressing their creative intent. The Special Scene (SCN) setting combines three shooting modes—Night Portrait, High Dynamic Range (HDR) Backlight Control and Handheld Night Scene—allowing users to easily capture high-quality images even under challenging shooting conditions. The SCN setting is easily accessible from the new mode dial, which rotates 360 degrees to support faster setting selection. In addition to inheriting the gracefully curved, compact body design of its predecessor, the Kiss X7i newly features a high-quality exterior coating for an enhanced look and feel.
