The Canon 77D Is for the Amateur Photographer That Doesn’t Think They’re Very Amateur But Not Quite Intermediate Yet

Today, Canon is introducing a few new products that have apparently been terribly kept secrets but also have been making some scratch their heads. To start, the new Canon 77D is supposed to live above the Canon T6s but below the Canon 80D. Why? Well, I’m sure that there’s a good reason if they’re literally creating a new line of camera for it. In some ways, you can imagine it as the two cameras semi-sort of smushed together into one and removing the weather sealing.

But perhaps more exciting is the company’s new Canon T7i or the Canon M6.
