Rebel T7 sensor self cleaning

Does the T7 have a sensor self cleaning?

Negative, the Rebel T7 does not have a "self-cleaning" sensor.  All that the self cleaning process does is rapidly shake and vibrate the sensor, which supposedly causes dust to come free and fall off inside of your camera somewhere.

The camera has a cleaning function that automatically removes dust from the image sensor when the power is turned on or off, or when the camera shuts off in Power Saving mode. This cleaning function can be activated whenever you like, or shut off entirely. ... Set the camera's power switch to < ON >.

The above claim is totally incorrect.  The Rebel T7 only has manual sensor cleaning mode.  It is not self cleaning.

"The camera has a cleaning function ..."

 

You are probably thinking T7i, not T7.
