Canon EOS 2000D overview

The Canon EOS 2000D is a 24MP compact frame, APS-C format DSLR camera with a DIGIC4+ processor and a metal mount. It replaced the Canon EOS 1300D DSLR camera in March 2018. It is also known as the Canon Rebel T7.

The camera is built specifically with entry level photographers in mind and incorporates built in features such as a built-in-features guide, scene modes, creative filters and picture styles one come to expect from entry level cameras. The camera also comes out with a big mode wheel assisting beginner photographers which includes the additional shooting modes such as Programmed Automatic (P), Aperture priority (Av), shutter priority (Tv) and Manual (M) shooting modes which one would expect to see.

Being in the entry level region and designed with beginner photographers in mind the camera is very easy to operate and is a very good choice if you are looking for a DSLR camera on a very tight budget.

The white symbols functions while shooting, and the blue symbols indicate functions during playback and when reviewing the images.

An ISO range of Auto, ISO 100 – 6400 which is expandable to 12800 and a maximum shutter speed of 1/4000sec.

Canon EOS 2000D pros

  • Very good value for money entry level camera only if you are on a tight budget
  • Can be used as a back-up camera

Canon EOS 2000D cons

  • The only upgrade from its predecessor, the Canon EOS 1300D, is its megapixels and nothing else.
  • This camera can be viewed as one of the most minor upgraded camera models which has been manufactured.
  • This camera model should have incorporated more features and should have had a much better upgrade from its predecessor.


The only upgrade of the Canon EOS 2000D from its predecessor the Canon EOS 1300D which was launched in March 2016 is megapixels, and nothing else. The camera would make a suitable back-up camera should your primary camera fail.

If you are on a tight budget and can only afford the Canon EOS 2000D then do so, but there are many other makes and models of camera which were launched during the time when this camera was launched with much better specifications.
