Canon 7D overview

  • 1Description

The Canon EOS 7D boasts the latest high performance photo and video imaging capabilities for professionals and discerning image makers alike. An 18 megapixel APS-C format CMOS sensor coupled with Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors enables fast, 8 frames per second shooting and expanded ISO 100-12800 sensitivity without compromising quality. True 1080p HD video can be recorded at either 24 or 30 frames per second for a smooth, cinematic effect. 720p and SD video are captured at either 50 or 60 frames per second, offering a superior method to capture motion. An integrated mono microphone records spontaneous audio with video, while a 3.5mm stereo input offers higher quality options for professional applications.

The 7D's all new, all cross-type, 19 point autofocus system features 5 user-selectable focusing modes. All focus points can be selected automatically or manually and programmed for priority based on the portrait or landscape orientation of the camera. Canon's latest iFCL (Intelligent Focus Color Luminosity) Metering System utilizes all 19 AF points, 63 zones, and a dual layer color sensor to analyze shooting conditions and optimize exposure.

Large and bright, the EOS 7D's Intelligent Viewfinder offers 100% viewing of the total image area and features a transparent LCD overlay to show user-selected AF points/modes, a spot metering circle, and on-demand grid lines. In addition to the optical viewfinder, Live View mode allows users to compose photos and video on the 3.0", 920,000-dot rear LCD screen. A new Dual Axis Electronic Level provides a reference to adjust the roll and pitch of the camera in 1° increments using the viewfinder or LCD.

Additional features include environmentally sealed magnesium-alloy construction, an integrated sensor cleaning system, 150,000 exposure shutter rating, and wireless TTL control of Canon EX-series Speedlite Flashes. With all this and more, the Canon EOS 7D represents the next generation of professional EOS photo and video imaging.

This kit includes the Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens.

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.

    Canon 7D reviews

    EOS 7D DSLR Camera with 28-135mm Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 607.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pictures are better focused I like bird photography and upgraded from a Sony A65 with 70G400mm to this camera with the 400mm 5.6L USM lens. I had difficulty getting reliably good focus and saw that all the pro's were using Cannon. I found that my keepers jumped up a notch almost immediately. This set up seems to focus faster and more accurately. I find it very helpful that I can quickly move the spot focus point to the upper region which allows me to shoot without the focus move and then shoot. Very helpful on a tripod. Also, the view finder is bright and large enough to shoot with my glasses on. For some reason, I always need to remove my glasses to shoot with the Sony.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love This Camera I use my 7D in the studio and it is awesome. Great skin tones, fast focus. I have used it to document a theatrical play and it blew my mind how well it captured images and focused in low light conditions. The 1080p HD video is truly cinematic quality. By far my favorite part of this camera is switching over to 8fps and watch heads turn and jaws drop. My only issue with my new 7D is that captures so much info that my old 2GB CF cards are now insufficient. I would recommend higher capacity CF cards. I went with (2) 32GB cards. 2GB= 64 RAW images (23mb files) 2GB= 6min 1080p Video I love Canon's 7D and I'm sure you will too! Happy Shooting, Eugene Wise

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely fallen in love I am a photography student and I've been using a Canon Rebel XTI for a few years and found that I simply outgrew it. I had heard only great things about the 7D so I bought it and fell in love with it the very first time I clicked the shutter button. I'm currently shooting a documentary project, and bands and other subjects for websites and it's meeting all of my needs. The clarity is amazing and I'm love the 28-135 usm lens that I purchased with it. It's fast and quiet and gets the job done. I'm also more then thrilled to be able to experiment with the video feature. What little I've used it so far I've been very pleased! I couldn't of asked for a better camera!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade from a 20D My 20D finally failed, and I decided to upgrade rather than send it back to Canon. The 7D made the most sense. I wanted something a little more than a 50D, and would have loved a 5D, but unfortunately, I couldn't afford it. The 7D came in at a good price point, and it has HD video to boot. Overall, the camera is fast, smart in its layout and controls, and comfortable to hold. So far (only one photo shoot with it to date), my only complaint is that the lens will not auto focus when taking video. Auto ISO is interesting, as are the different auto focus modes. I generally don't do anything in auto mode, but these seem to work well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Learned Combat Photography WWII I am 80 years old and learned Combat Photography during WWII as a student. This camera would have been a real winner then for photoshopping pictures to take out the gorry. I use a 7D and MkII for original, non photoshopped photos. The user should use the camera to take what he see, not some manipulated photoshop dream. Photo shopping with a camera is like a is like a Painter that can't paint. Just an old photographers view.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent All-Purpose Camera As a young filmmaker I was looking for a camera that could do excellent photography, as well (and more importantly) high quality video and not break my bank account. The Canon 7D was that and more. I have used this camera every single day since the day it arrived, and every day I find something new about it and still have a lot to learn. Its ability in low light is outstanding, the quality in well lit situations is crisp and beautiful. I would definitely recommend shooting on a nice Compact Flash card, as to get the best quality from the camera. I personally shoot with a SanDisk 32gb--150m/b(read speed) card. Overall, A++

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canon Excellence Continued I use this camera mated with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens to photograph my daughters at athletic events. Catching action shots inside is like watching a moment in time frozen in crystal. Indoor and outdoor photography with this camera is superb. There is a bit of a learning curve, but having upgraded from a Canon 50D, it was fairly easy to fall into my comfort zone with the 7D. For those that question the cost...I will agree that this camera is spendy. Photography is an expensive hobby/profession but the results are worth the cost. When you've captured your child in a photograph, that even viewing in real time, you may have missed the smallest of details becomes priceless. Canon continues to lead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this Camera, YOU will too! I bought this camera to replace a Canon XTi. I am rough with my cameras, I move around allot and I need a camera that can last! I was going to get he 60D but the plastic body with the flip out screen was not for me. This camera is amazing, I love the magnesium body, large grip, large screen the list goes on oh and did I mention the amazingly fast frame rate. Video recording is great on this camera, not the best like a full Pro HD Video Camera, but certainly better than a consumer HD Camera. I love this camera and I can't wait to see what I can do with it next! Buy this camera and some L series glass and you will have an amazing system.
