HELLO!! I have a canon SL1. I've had it for 3 years. It was my first dslr and it's really helped me discover how much I enjoy photography. But I'm looking to upgrade. I still want to stay under $1,000. I enjoy all forms of photography. But mostly nature and landscape photography. Im trying to expand my skills. I was looking at the new Canon 77D. I really want wifi and Bluetooth capabilities. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions
Thanks in advance!!

I haven't seen any reviews of the new Canon, but from what I've read, it's an "80D lite".  The 80D has received good reviews and it's under $1000.  That would be my choice.

You could take a look at Toby Gelston's YouTube video comparing the 80D and the 77D:
It's pretty specific (he recommends the 80D). 
But I do not think that the 80D has Bluetooth. It has Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, but I see no mention of bluetooth in any specs. So, if that's important to you, I guess the 77D is the way to go. Finally, the 80D costs about $1100 body-only nowadays, so it is a little over the budget you mentioned.
Me, I have an 80D (I upgraded from a 60D which I had for over 5 years). It's great!
