Canon EOS 7D

Rating:
5/5,
  • With a host of brand new features designed to enhance every facet of the photographic process, from still images to video, the new EOS 7D represents a whole new class of camera. Made to be the tool of choice for serious photographers and semi-professionals, the EOS 7D features an all-new 18.0-megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor and Dual DIGIC 4 image processors, capturing tremendous images at up to ISO 12800 and speeds of up to 8 fps. The EOS 7D has a new all cross-type 19-point AF system with improved AI Servo AF subject tracking and user-selectable AF area selection modes for sharp focus no matter the situation. The EOS 7D's Intelligent Viewfinder, an entirely newly designed technology, provides 100% coverage and displays user-selected AF modes as well as a spot metering circle and on demand grid lines.

    New iFCL Metering with 63-zone dual-layer metering system uses both focus and color information to provide accurate exposure even in difficult lighting. The EOS 7D also captures Full HD video at 30p (29.97 fps), 24p (23.976 fps) and 25p with an array of manual controls, including manual exposure during movie shooting and ISO speed selection. The EOS 7D features a magnesium alloy body that is dust and weather resistant and shutter durability of up to 150,000 cycles. Compatible with over 60 EF and EF-S lenses as well as with EOS System accessories, the creative opportunities--not just with stills but also with video--are beyond amazement

    "Great camera"
    Would you recommend this to others?:
    • yes
    Purchase Price:
    £309
    Pros - Very good grip, build quality, AF speed, button placement, features and options, 8fps
    Cons - iso 6400 or more no good really, expensive
    Not sure how happy I would have been with the original price but as a £309 mess about camera its great.
    Far superior buttons and build than my 6d and faster better AF system except the centre AF point on the 6d is excellent.
    Love the ease of use and speed I can set exposure in manual mode.
    ISO is way behind Nikon but I prefer the canon aperture wheel, iso placement and little joystick.
    Screen is ok, can see the image quite well.
    Generally easy to navigate menu and plenty of options.
    Not perfect but better than many cameras.
    If Nikon would have made a follow up to the d300s sooner I'm sure it would have smoked this however.
