Designed for pros and semi-pros alike, the Canon EOS 7D is a high-performance digital SLR, that features the resolving power of an 18-megapixel APS-C format CMOS sensor and dual DIGIC 4 image processors that enable 8 frames-per-second capture of high-definition, low-noise imaging at sensitivity levels up to ISO 12800. It accepts lenses with EF or EF-S mounts.

In addition to high-definition still images the Canon EOS 7D can also capture true HD 1080p video at 30 frames per second. Video clips can be up to 12 minutes in length or 4GB in size, and you can make full use of all Canon EF and EF-S-mount lenses, which enables an exceptional range of creative visual possibilities. And to ensure clean, blemish-free image files, the 7D employs a dual dust-reduction system.

The EOS 7D's Intelligent Viewfinder enables 100% viewing of the total image area, and features a transparent LCD overlay option that enables advanced data display within the optical viewfinder including user-selected AF modes, a spot metering circle, and on-demand grid lines. In addition to the 7D's optical viewfinder a Live View mode enables you to compose, review, and edit images using the camera's 3", 920,000-dot TFT LCD. The 7D also features a Dual Axis Electronic Level and tilt display that enables you to adjust the roll and pitch of the camera in 1° increments, using the viewfinder or LCD.

For continuous shooting sequences, the 7D can capture bursts of up to 126 JPEGs (large) when using UDMA CF memory cards, or 15 when shooting RAW files. An enhanced all cross-type 19-point autofocus system enables extremely accurate AI Servo AF subject tracking and user-selectable AF modes for precise focusing. For metering stills and video, the 7D features a new 63-zone iFCL metering system that takes focus and color data into consideration when establishing exposure times.

The Canon EOS 7D is constructed out of rugged magnesium-alloy and is sealed against dust and weather. The 7D's shutter is equally rugged and tested for up to 150,000 exposure cycles. Images can be recorded to Type I and II, UDMA-compliant CompactFlash cards in either sRGB or Adobe RGB, and you can expect up to 800 exposures per charge using the camera's rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

18.0 Megapixel CMOS Sensor and Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors
The EOS 7D features a Canon-designed 18.0 Megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor that captures such a high level of resolution it's easy to crop images for enlargement without concern of losing detail. A major factor in reducing noise, the CMOS sensor assures that images shot at highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth. Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors ensure that images are captured, processed and saved with remarkable speed. The EOS 7D's ability to capture and process data of images shot at 18.0 Megapixels at 8 fps, as well as Face Detection Live Mode, Full HD video recording, Auto Lighting Optimizer and Lens Peripheral optimization are all possible thanks to the Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors.
ISO 100-6400 (expandable to 12800)
With a broad range of ISO settings, the EOS 7D enables shooting from dawn through dusk and ensures capture of the finest detail. With enhanced, low-noise high-sensitivity optimization, shooting in situations previously possible only with flash are easier than ever before.
Advanced Movie Mode with Manual Exposure Control and Selectable Frame Rates
The EOS 7D offers the enhanced image quality, smooth frame rates and adaptive exposure compensation necessary in a professional movie-making tool. By shooting video with a large sensor camera, it's simple to take advantage of the image characteristics intrinsic to SLR photography and not necessarily to video cameras.

In addition to a number of different recording size and frame rate modes, the EOS 7D enables easy manual control of exposure, focus and Live View features and even allows for in-camera editing. The large CMOS sensor and compatibility with over 60 lenses provide a wealth of depth-of-field options. And it's all as easy as the press of a button - the EOS 7D has a dedicated Live View/Movie Recording lever with a start/stop button that gets the shooting started fast.

Full HD Video is captured at 1920 x 1080 resolution at 30p (29.97), 24p (23.976) or 25p frames per second, for up to 4GB per clip. Movies are saved as .MOV files and can be viewed in Full HD with HDMI output. Other recording sizes include HD at 1280 x 720 (50p / 60p (59.94) fps) or SD/VGA at 640 x 480 (50p / 60p (59.94) fps).

Intelligent Viewfinder
The EOS 7D features a phenomenal redesigned viewfinder that not only offers 100 percent coverage, 1x magnification, a 29.4° angle of view and user-controlled dioptric adjustment; it also features a newly-designed transparent LCD display which enables a number of viewfinder displays to be overlaid at the touch of a button. Whereas with other cameras the representation of AF points and metering areas are static, with the EOS 7D, they can be displayed, adjusted and hidden, in camera, with ease. This means less distraction and more clarity to view the image in its entirety.

Display options include: grid, spot metering, AF points display, hide all, zone AF, spot (single-point) AF, AF point expansion and Dual Axis Electronic Level display. The EOS 7D also features a brilliant new Dual Axis Electronic Level and tilt display that aids in achieving perfectly level shots, displaying both roll and pitch in 1° increments, either in the viewfinder or on the LCD.

New 19-Point, All Cross-Type AF System
Canon packed its most advanced technologies into the EOS 7D's AF system. With 19 high precision, cross-type AF sensors, any of which can be selected automatically or manually, the EOS 7D is equipped to handle even the trickiest of focus situations with ease. The high-speed microcomputers in the EOS 7D use advanced algorithms that help ensure the fastest, most accurate AF performance under the widest variety of conditions.

In addition, Canon's Light Source detection AF automatically compensates the focus by taking into account artificial lighting sources and making appropriate adjustments and the EOS 7D's new Intelligent Macro focusing tracks the object or the cameras movement when shooting close-up, to ensure focus is never lost. AF modes can be customized to suit the situation, ensuring reliable focus, every time.

iFCL Metering with 63-Zone Dual-Layer Metering Sensor
The EOS 7D features a new, 63-zone dual-layer sensor designed to complement the 19-point AF system. By taking into account the color and luminosity surrounding chosen AF points, this new system delivers an entirely new level of accuracy for better results even in difficult lighting situations.

Since the metering sensor has a color measurement function, exposure errors and focus errors caused by different light sources are minimized; the EOS 7D gives stable exposure from shot to shot in situations where light changes, such as in a theater or concert hall. This makes the EOS 7D ideal for scenes with extreme difference in brightness such as brightly lit scenes or backlit scenes; the camera balances exposure of the main subject at the background, and exposures are not overly influenced by bright areas in the shot.

Rugged, Durable, Dust and Weather Resistant Construction
The EOS 7D is constructed of the highest quality materials, to exacting standards to ensure unfettered performance at all times. For example, the shutter can shoot at speeds up to 1/8000 sec for 150,000 cycles; the chassis is built of lightweight and rigid magnesium, and the camera's seals are built to resist water and dust.

    I was hestitant to purchase this due to negative reviews on internet regarding focus issues. When I received the camera, I tested the focus first out of the box. Yes it was soft. I called regarding returning it, and B&H rep was willing to do this, but refered me to the tech department first. I explained the problem and Rob the tech guru explained about the micro adjustment on the camera which enables you to micro tune focus to any lens. If you have a camera and lens at the same end of tolerance when they leave the factory this can happen. Bottom line, I used a twenty dollar bill, a tripod and the self timer set to 10 seconds, and after about two hours work, I set micro adjustment to Plus 4, and have a crisp clean sharp focus. This camera will allow you to fine tune to any lens and the camera will remember it. I use this for birding, so feathers are what it's all about. I have not been disappointed. Add blistering fast frame rate at 8 per second and this is one great action/wildlife camera. It's a bit noisy at higher ISO's as with any of the crop sensor cameras. One con is the CF card. While really fast with the new pro 1000x, they are quite spendy and at 8 frames going full tilt, you need the fastest cards.It will go continuously for about 4 seconds shooting full RAW files, then lag. Buffer clears in about 2 seconds. Haven't tried JPG's yet

    My wife raved for weeks about pictures she was viewing on Facebook that were posted by a number of photographers in Florida. She kept saying, and they shot these with a 7D and a 500 mm lens or a 7D and my (her) lens (the 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6). I never get pictures like that. So, I bought her the camera and we've been using it for about 2 weeks...and she's still not getting photos "like that" and neither am I. But, that is mostly due to the lousy lighting conditions here in southwest Ohio as compared to those in central and southern Florida.
    - Most useful or most welcome features for us so far are
    -- 1.6x crop factor delivered by the sensor, which is smaller than what we have been shooting for the last 1-2 years (5D Mark II and 1D Mark IV). Coupled with my 300 mm f/2.8 and 2x extender II or 2x extender III, the subjects we shoot (hawks, owls, eagles, and many common birds) are significantly larger in the viewfinder and in the final photo.
    -- New design of the autofocus sensors as well as the additional sensors available over the 5D Mark II and the accuracy of that focus (at least in good light) versus the 5D Mark II (not as good as the 1D Mark IV)
    - Trade-offs versus 5D Mark II and 1D Mark IV are
    -- Smaller sensor results in significantly more noise in dark subjects and in low-light or when using "higher" ISOs (even 500 and 640 are not nearly as good as the other two cameras)
    -- Image quality at any ISO I've shot so far is not as good as the 5D Mark II or the 1D Mark IV in my humble opinion.
    -- Extra magnification (crop factor) results in comparitively more shake when used with telephoto lenses; not only is the subject magnified, so are all movements of the user. (Hint: If you have any difficulty with image stability when hand-holding a telephoto lens, that "instability" will be significantly magnified when moving to a 1.6 crop factor sensor like that in the 7D.) If you already use a 1.6 crop-factor camera, you'll be right at home with the 7D.
    Overall, my wife loves the camera for the autofocus sensors and even more so for the additional crop factor she gets with the 100-400 mm. I like it for the additional crop factor with my 300 f/2.8 and 1.4 or 1.6 extender, but I don't find the focusing or image quality to be on par with the 1D Mark IV. The 5D Mark II images are far superior as far as noise and overall color, but the 5D Mark II did/does have focusing issues.

        She I called B&H I was trying to figure out the camera that was perfect for me. I was helped by the details given by the salesman, he helped me look at different issues and concerns one might have between the two cameras I was picking from.....AND IT WAS THE CHEAPER ONE I WENT WITH! He helped me through this process, didn't push for the more expensive camera, and was very nice. Recommend B&H!

                The Canon 7D is an amazing camera. It is constructed with the metal alloy body, like the old 20D's,(not the plastic bodies like the lower-end Rebels). Image quality is outstanding. Video is full HD. Great step up for the Semi-pros, and pros. Definitely not a point-and-shoot.

                  I am an amateur nature photographer and purchased the Canon 7D because of all the rave reviews and the photos I've seen taken with it. I've been using it about a week now and it lives up to the great reviews. Can't wait to use all of the features of this awesome camera.

                  The image quality is a noticeable improvement on the 60d, for moving images. The only drawback is the viewfinder doesn't swivel off the back of the camera, so it's a little unsuitable for hand held filming. Other than that super happy with it.

                    I upgraded from a Canon T1i to the Canon 7D this year for a work and personal camera. I love the features and quality of the 7D. Many of the Crime Scenes I shoot are at night or low visibility so the high ISO helps me a lot. I do not use the live view function and I originally started working Crime Scenes with a Canon EOS Elan so the controls were easy for me to get used to. I do have a problem with my work computer opening the large jpeg files fast.

                      This camera sensor just takes very poor images. Lots of online reviews / comments about how poor the image is and even worst about ISO 400 or so.

                      Images are very grainy, over and under exposed, really have to tweat the camera settings just to get an average file.

                      But it does focus well and fast, that is it only strength.

                        I've been shooting my 7D for several years and with the right lenses it rarely falls short. It is crop-sensor and price reflects what you get. I use mine as my back-up to my 5D MKIII and cannot complain.

                        I use the 7d as a 3rd/video cam and backup for my wedding photography business.

                        While it feels like the 5d MkII in the hand, it shoots a little differently. First, the burst rate (even on RAW) is way faster. The AF seems to be faster than the 5D MkII in most cases, however one noticeable difference was that it was slower with longer telephotos in certain modes. It took some getting used to changing AF modes (never really had to do that before). The ISO also doesn't perform quite as well, but hey, its a grand less. Aside from the 18MB photos and crop frame, no real quality difference with good lighting and lenses.

                        The larger buttons, built in level, extra manual function button and dedicated video/live button were all welcome additions coming from the 5D Mk II. They make better use of the space, and are the bells and whistles that make this "downgrade" for a backup feel a lot more like a "cross grade" for someone wanting a crop frame (something that interested us because it makes for more lens selection choices).

                        All in all, happy with my purchase and B&H is always awesome.

It's a tool that makes my work easier and the results better than before (I used a Canon Rebel XSi). The camera is also rugged, a must for my type of work.

                          This is definitely a great all around camera. I also have a 5D II but I usually use the 7D for hanging around without to much trouble, specially when I go in a bike riding trip. I recommend it to anyone for almost everything but I also recommend using quality glass or top of the line lenses. I only use series "L" lenses except for a 10-22 EF-S for the 7D and it works perfect.
