Average Continuous Shooting: 6.0fps
In the world of sports photography, faster is always better.
Most outdoor sports games are held in all-weather, so your camera has to be ready for difficult conditions such as rain and snow. Exposure to dust and water splashes are also very common in sports. No Image Stabilization
Due to the lack of sensor based Image stabilization, Canon T7i users have to rely on lenses with optical IS in order to maximize the sharpness of their sports photography photos. Currently there are native Canon EF/EF-S mount lenses with Image Stabilization for Canon T7i.
