Hello! After finally figuring out how to record on my camera (I was just hitting the wrong button)I realized that I can’t get videos off it threw the app… Would an iPhone plug card reader work to retrieve my videos? Also is this a good camera for videos? I mostly do photography but would I like to use it for videos if I can but I’m not sure how the sound quality is. Should I just buy a vlog camera or is there a way to make this one work? It’s a canon rebel t7
Have a blessed day.

“Is the T7 good for videos?”
Yes, and no.
Yes, the T7 can capture sharp videos. It would work well as a webcam for video conferencing. It would work well for recording “talking head” videos that you often see on YouTube.
No, the T7 cannot refocus and track moving subjects while in video mode. If you need the camera to refocus, then the user must tell the camera where to refocus. The T7 is not well suited for “run and gun” style of video recording.
Put it on a tripod. Aim and focus. Hit record. That is what it does best.

Like all video, it thrives on a lot of light.

I have a T7; manual says for videos to use a a card designated SD Speed Class (6) or higher. Regular card will be slow. BTW, might be good to download the 326 page manual as a shortcut for quick reference. I frequently refer to it.

I never cared for DLSRs for video; preferring dedicated video equipment instead. Beyond what others have already pointed out, here are other gotchas with your current DLSR for video (depending upon content you're producing, some could be minor or major):
