Question: After I capture a scene with my Canon Rebel T7i (800D), I can see the image on my Live View for a few seconds afterwards. To view the image for a longer period of time, I push the small Play button that’s on the lower right portion of the back of the camera. I can flip through the pictures that way. My question is, how can I zoom in and out to view the pictures more close up? I’d like to really inspect each photo after it’s taken.
Answer: When in review mode on your Canon Rebel T7i, you can press the button that’s located in the upper right corner of the rear of the camera to zoom. One of the buttons has a minus sign on it and the other has a plus sign. Press the one with the plus sign to zoom in.
When you zoom in, you won’t be able to see the entire shot anymore. You’ll have to navigate around the image to get an up-close view of the picture you took. On older cameras, you’d have to use the arrow keys on the back of the camera to scroll back and forth and up and down. With the T7i, since it’s touch screen, you can pinch and spread your fingers to zoom in and out and then just drag your finger around the LCD screen to move the image around so you can see all parts of it. This is a great way to review the quality of your images to determine if you need to retake any of them.
