Tuesday 26th February. Canon announced at Photo Booth Expo that the EOS Rebel T7/2000D camera has been updated to add a center contact (X sync) on the hotshoe.
Why does this matter?
The updated T7/2000D B2B version camera will trigger most external flashes or studio strobes, making it a great budget choice DSLR camera for photo booths.
Older versions of the T7 did not have this center contact, meaning that this camera model was not suitable photo booths which use flash.
Spot the difference
Can I use the new EOS T7 B2B with Breeze?
Yes, all versions of Breeze which supported the original T7 will support the new version of the camera. That’s
- DSLR Remote Pro v3.11.2 onwards
- Multi-Camera v2.0 onwards
- Flipbook Photobooth 1.8
- BreezeBrowser Pro 1.10
- Downloader Pro 2.5
How do I tell which camera I am buying?
Canon call this a running change, and have not changed the model name. Initially the camera will only be available to B2B customers. US buyers will need to place their order through Canon Inc.
There may be a mixture of new and old versions on the market. Do take care that you are sourcing the new version with X Sync when you order this camera.
We will have the updated EOS T7 on the Breeze stand (1113) when the Photo Booth Expo tradeshow opens this afternoon.
