Assuming there's been discussion on here regarding Canon crippling the hot shoe of a few models and making them worthless for 3rd party flash triggers....

I really wanted to get something with the bigger 24mp sensor (The T6 and older 60D's etc, are the smaller 18mp sensor), but the T7 being the cheapest option with the bigger sensor also had the crippled hot shoe....
I saw a couple on eBay that seemed to have the center pin on the hot shoe, so I finally called Canon. Turns out they finally caved into the pressure from everyone complaining and started producing the T7 with the center pin in the hot shoe, so it will work with 3rd party flash triggers and off-brand flashes. T7's manufactured after January 2020 DO have the center pin.
My eBay T7 with the center pin is on the way and I'm stoked.

Thought someone else would like to know.....

That's about as bad as Nikon eliminating the remote shutter port on their entry level DSLR cameras.
