A whole new class of EOS

13 Comments

Canon's new EOS 7D comes with a host of brand new features designed to enhance every facet of the photographic process, from still images to video. 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.

It 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.

Available from October. Open pricing.

All of which means dirt if the lens that comes with the camera isn't worth jack.

Exactly. A higher end lens on a lower end body is much better than the opposite. It's amazing how often I see someone shooting a crap kit lens on something like a D300. What's the point?

Better to just spend it all on the lens and not even bother with the body.

Which camera is better, Nikon or Canon?

30fps is maybe usual motion standart for eyes but for that price range couldn't they increase the fps for 1080p.

Please don't start that.... it only causes a stupid argument between rival fanboys hahaha!

Pretty sure the 7D will be packaged with the same 24-105L lens that the 5dmk2 has.... I use my 1.4 50mm lens 99% of the time though and always recommend that to people

Oh, and a big 'nice one' to Canon for including a dual-axis electronic level for both pitch and roll.... no excuse for poorly aligned landscape shots now!

Looks like they've incorporated a lot of features that Nikon has had for a couple of years.

I have to wonder about 18MP on a small sensor - there have to be some serious noise issues.

nessie> spot on! LMAO

JohnBecker> true, but noise control is one of the few things that canon has done better than nikon in recent years so my hopes r high that this increase in pixels might not be detrimental to the quality of the sensor (oh and for all u "lens" lovers above..the sensor is just as important as the lens....u can buy a canon L lens but if u put it on a 1000, the pics are not going to look anywhere as nice as if u put it on a 50D)....I caveat this with the obvious fact that each person has different level of quality requirement from their photos.

Well of course. But between different bodies with the same sensor a quality lens is far more important than an upgrade in body.
