Cannon rebel t7i vs Sl2
I am looking to purchase my first DSLR camera. My husband and I love to travel and are about to have a baby. I went to a local camera store and they recommended the SL2 instead of the t7i. I am new to photography but want something that we will be happy with for several years to come. I by no means will be taking professional level photos but want a camera that will be able to capture good photos of our family and document our vacations. I like the smaller body of the SL2, but am definitely willing to spend more $$ if it would be beneficial. From the reading that I've done the main difference between the two cameras is the 45 vs 9 point auto-focus. Is this a significant improvement? I hope to learn more about DLSR photography and maybe even take a few classes, but will probably often be shooting in the auto-focus mode. Should I buy a t7i or stick with an SL2. Is there a higher quality camera that I should consider? Mainly, I want to be able to get great photos of our (future) kiddos.
