Designed for first-time shooters, but capable enough for advanced imaging tasks, the Canon EOS Rebel T8i is a versatile DSLR with well-rounded photo and video capabilities. Featuring a 24.1MP APS-C-format CMOS sensor and DIGIC 8 image processor, high-resolution stills and UHD 4K video recording are supported, along with a wide ISO 100-25600 sensitivity range to suit working in a variety of lighting conditions. Benefitting the imaging attributes, the sensor's design also facilitates Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which uses phase-detection autofocus for quick, accurate, and smooth focusing performance when recording movies or shooting stills in live view. When shooting stills using the optical viewfinder, a 45-point all cross-type phase-detection system is used for quick and accurate focusing in a variety of shooting scenarios.

The physical design incorporates a 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD, which uses a vari-angle design to permit easier viewing from high, low, and even front-facing angles. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi with NFC is available for quick and convenient pairing with a smartphone or tablet for wireless image sharing, and Bluetooth is also featured for image sharing to and remote camera control from a mobile device.

24.1MP APS-C CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 8 Image Processor

Both a 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 8 image processor are used to deliver high sensitivity and fast performance to suit both stills and video applications. A flexible native ISO 100-25600 range suits working in a variety of lighting conditions, and the processing capabilities minimize noise for notable clarity and expandable sensitivity up to ISO 51200. The processor also enables up to 7 fps continuous shooting as well as UHD 4K video recording to suit working with moving subjects.

45-Point All Cross-Type AF and Dual Pixel CMOS AF Systems

Benefitting stills shooting with the optical viewfinder, a wide-area 45-point all cross-type phase-detection autofocus system provides quick and precise focusing in difficult lighting conditions. The cross-type design of the sensors affords greater accuracy in low-contrast and mixed lighting conditions, and the broad coverage of the 45 sensors is ideal for tracking and maintaining focus on moving subjects. Additionally, EOS iTR AF also prioritizes detected faces in a scene in order to maintain accurate focus during portrait shooting.

When recording video or shooting in live view, a Dual Pixel CMOS AF system is employed that offers smooth and fast focusing performance in a similar manner to how a camcorder acquires focus. This system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of phase-detection gathering elements across a majority of the image sensor to reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement. When working with still imagery, this focusing system works to acquire focus quickly and accurately, making it ideally suited to shooting and tracking moving subjects so that critical focus is attained with each shot. Eye Detection AF can also be employed to prioritize focus on a recognized subject's eye. When shooting video, a Movie Servo AF mode offers smooth and natural focusing when changing from different subjects or different distances within the scene, as well as the ability to specify tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face Tracking priority. Benefited by the Touch AF system, rack focus is possible simply by touching elements within the scene on the touchscreen in order to change focus in an intuitive manner. Subject tracking in movies is also heightened due to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system's ability to recognize subjects and maintain focus when working within changing or cluttered scenery.

UHD 4K Video Recording

In addition to stills, the T8i also sports UHD 4K video recording at up to 24 fps, as well as Full HD and HD recording, and supports vertical video output for vlogging applications. Video recording is benefitted by the inclusion of Dual Pixel CMOS AF and the Movie Servo AF focusing functions, as well as the touchscreen design of the LCD monitor for intuitive control. Movie Digital IS also helps to steady recordings by minimizing the appearance of camera shake across five axes for smoother footage. Additionally, an external microphone jack is incorporated in the body design for greater control over your recorded sound.

Body Design and Wireless Connectivity

  • Large 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD provides an intuitive method for controlling focusing points, navigating menus, and reviewing imagery. This screen also features a vari-angle design to better enable working from high and low angles.
  • Optical pentamirror viewfinder serves a clear means for eye-level shooting.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi allows for easy wireless sharing of both photos and movies to a linked mobile device.
  • Bluetooth permits linking a smartphone or tablet for quick image sharing between devices as well as remote control capabilities.

Other Camera Features

  • A 220,000-pixel AE metering sensor benefits both autofocus and exposure metering precision and enables Color Tracking for more accurately detecting skin colors.

This is a great beginner camera. The results are OK. The display is super limited in that it really just is OK for adjusting for setting but not designed for shooting. It does not provide a live view in camera mode only in video mode. As someone that has been an advanced shooter for decades this is too limiting for me to like this camera at all. I should have spent the extra money on the higher end Canon that is more in line for my skill level. The results for video are OK. Does it work OK, yes. I just wish that I had not purchased it and gone cheap.

Compact, tough enough,

We picked up this camera on an expedition actually looking for a different model that was out of stock. We had lenses already and quickly found the cameras capability for exceeded its kit lens. Strapped to my backpack the camera never missed a shot. It sits comfortably between an advanced camera and a beginner. It’s size and weight makes it packable. The battery gave us all day shooting and was charged with goal zero products. It was used for a wide Variety of shooting, from deep sky to Scientific research and we were very well pleased with it. Just get a good lens and you’ll own a great small camera for outdoor use, it’s only con is it’s missing GPS, but we don’t need that feature on a still unit. Remote shooting with the app works great and includes live shooting. Low light was fantastic, 1080 was good, while 4K was cropped but a good lens fixed that mostly. Built in microphone was good enough for clear note taking of videos. Overall I feel this camera is underrated. It’s made 4 expeditions where much more expensive cameras have failed. It has all the ports you’ll need, microphone, HDMI out worked great for video conversations on the web. And best of all it’s fully compatible with other products as if it was made for expeditions. Bottom line was we settled for this camera by accident, and as it turns out it was the best mistake we made in video/photography equipment we’ve made. It became my go to camera for our trips. Get one and a good lens EF-S you won’t be sorry. If you are i worry about you…

I LOVE THIS CAMERA!!!!

This camera is AMAZING! The photos are beautiful. The autofocus is so fast and accurate, and the continuous shooting (burst mode) sounds like a canon. I would totally recommend this camera for anyone, from beginners to professionals. It also is WiFi connected, and can upload to Adobe Lightroom, google photos, google drive, flicker, and YouTube.

What is the write speed to the card? I'm interested in doing multiple 2 or 3 sec exposures, in the order for 200 to 300 hundred at a time, for astro photography, without a telescope. Will I have to leave multiple sec delays between each exposure for the buffer to be written to the card?
Asked by: David
Depends on the card actually. This camera's SD slot is UHS-I, it cannot take advantage of the UHS-II SD cards so don't spend the extra money. UHS-I cards max out at about 90 MB write speeds. For what you're doing though it's more than enough. I would turn off the Noise reduction in camera, so you can get quick 2-3 second exposures for you to stack. If you have noise reduction on you'll have to set extra seconds per interval to leave room for the buffer.
