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.

We have bought three of these bodies, two still work, one spent three days at the bottom of a cooler full of ice water. Don't dunk it and this camera will live through most anything.

Still the best of the Canon APS-c format CMOS DSLRs

By John Velvia

Tried both the 70D and the 7d mk ii. Each has some nice features but neither is as good overall as the 7d. Sure it would be nice to have a larger pivoting display, more pixels, wider iso range and the many other updates that the newer cameras have. I think the 7D although long in the tooth, is a great value.

Preferred Body, Paws Down

By Baekgu

I have other DSLRs I can use, but this is my preferred body without question. For my own style, it does everything I need and more. And if you don't get caught up in the MP wars, what it has is more than enough for most applications. If you're moving from an entry-level DSLR to this one (many categorize this one as semi-pro), it can be quite the jump. However, the learning curve /is not steep/. There are many resources and with tinkering, playing, and practicing, the 7D will be your best friend. I did get this used -- literally only the body, a battery, its charger, and the cable. So, I have zero experience with the software it is supposed to come with. (I use Lightroom anyway...) I've seen complaints about battery life... not sure where those are coming from. There are a lot of options to increase said battery life -- including getting different third-party batteries! Even with mine set to the 15-minute setting, I've had zero issues with battery. But... BUT... I don't go hog-wild crazy with the shutter or shoot video. Though I'm sure I'll upgrade sometime in the future, I can't see that happening any time soon. This is one of those cameras that I'll hold a funeral for if it suddenly breaks irreparably.

perfect condition and packaged well

camera body received matches picture and description and condition brand new as described. It was packaged well to protect from damage. And I liked that a signature was required when delivered to ensure item was received. I will be using this camera for a long time in the Colorado mountain scenery.

I love the 7D!

I primarily use the Canon 7D for dirt track racing, but it performs exceptionally well in all types of applications. I've done portraits, weddings, landscapes etc with excellent results. It is light and easy to use and handle. The quickness of the focusing is my primary concern when when shooting cars traveling at upwards of 150 mph. The 7D is up to the task. And as hard as dirt track racing dust is on equipment, I've never had an issue. This camera is built to last. I've dropped it and bumped several times and never had an issue. I own 3 7D bodies. I'm hooked on this baby!

Grand Pro/Am Serious Camera!

By anne the painter

I'm an oil painter, this is my fourth Canon SLR and my first DSLR. As a fine artist using photos for references toward artworks I am totally able to utilize this 7D Canon for capturing detail work and fleeting effects of subject matter, what I SEE is what I get! The auto features enabled me to quickly get started making fabulous source material. Once you learn to use any Canon SLR it is intuitive how to use the next one. I got fabulous hand held eclipse shots with etheral atmospheric clouds surrounding the moon the first week I took the camera out of the box! The 7D is discontinued (and greatly discounted for a best value purchase) but it is not obsolete, it uses same memory cards and battery as current Canons. I look forward to using it for many years as my art reference camera.

Not too shabby

By VN Photographer

I bought this camera body as an update to my 30D. My first shoot with it was an extended trip as part of a mission team to VN. Overall: Great Camera. Much better and tighter focusing than my old camera. However, in fast action, there are almost (too) many focus points for the camera to make use of which can lead to out of focus pictures when shooting in fast action. Camera focuses better and faster is brighter, well-lit situations. Camera is quite a lot quieter than I was expecting after seeing some reviews. Camera is a bit heavier than I was expecting. Lots of settings to use and play around with. For the price, I would definitely recommend this as an upgrade or backup camera. Too many features to learn overnight/figure out without the manual along to help.

In situations where B&H offers both a USA and an imported version of a product, we label each version clearly and explicitly. If a product does not have an indication either way, it is understood to be by default a USA product. In situations where only a USA version is offered it will not be labeled USA.
