The Canon 7D has been replaced in in late 2014 by the Canon 7D Mark II
The Canon EOS 7D was first announced in September 2009, targeting professional and semi-pros alike who shoot in the APS-C size format perhaps because the camera body only weighs in at 820g. The Canon 7D comes with a 18 megapixels APS-C CMOS sensor, Dual DIGIC 4 processors and ISO sensitivity up to 12800. The 7D also delivers high performance AF and metering systems with a 19-point cross-type AF sensor and an iFCL metering system with 63-zone dual-layer sensor. Images appear delightfully clear and crisp on the 7D’s 3-inch Clear View II LCD which has a 920k dots (VGA) resolution. As to be expected of a professional camera it has a weatherproof magnesium alloy body which feels solid and comfortable in your grip.
For those requiring high speed burst photography, the Canon 7D is capable of 8fps without the need of additional accessories. With 100 percent frame coverage from the viewfinder at 1.0x magnification, you are getting the best view of the current EOS series. Furthermore, with a transmissive LCD incorporated in the viewfinder, you can choose between various overlay features to suit your needs, such as AF points, the spot metering circle and composition grid. The newly introduced Dual-Axis Electronic Level feature is also accessible from both the viewfinder and the LCD. The Canon EOS 7D is also equipped with an Integrated Speedlite Transmitter and comes with the EOS Movie feature, which now allows you to shoot Full HD movies with full manual control and selectable frame rates.
Features of Canon 7D
18 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor
Capture every detail with an APS-C sized CMOS sensor offering 18 megapixel resolution. Images can be printed at large sizes, or cropped for alternative compositions without losing quality.
Use the EOS 7D hand held in low light, without the need for flash. Sensitivities extend up to ISO 6400 (expandable to ISO 12,800).
Shoot at 8 frames per second
Shoot full-resolution images at 8 fps, and ensure you never miss that decisive moment. Capture 130 JPEG files in a single burst, or 25 images in RAW format.
Full HD movie recording
Capture Full-HD movies at 1080p, with manual control over settings such as exposure, audio level and white balance. Canon’s EF lenses provide access to cinematic effects and shooting styles.
19-point autofocus system
Focus quickly and accurately using 19 cross-type AF points, spread out in a diamond formation across the frame.
Dual “DIGIC 4” processors
A pair of “DIGIC 4” processors provide the EOS 7D with the power to deliver exceptional image quality and outstanding performance. Effective noise reduction is accompanied by smooth tonal gradation and natural reproduction of colours.
Clear View II LCD screen
Review images and navigate the camera’s menu systems using a 920,000-dot, 7.7cm (3.0”) Clear View II LCD screen. Live View composition, offering three autofocus modes, is available while shooting stills or video.
Enjoy a natural view through the EOS 7D’s viewfinder, with approximately 100 per cent viewfinder coverage and 1.0x magnification. A transparent LCD screen overlays focus information and a dual-axis electronic level ensures straight horizons.
iFCL metering system
The EOS 7D uses a 63-zone exposure metering system for accurate determination of shutter speed and aperture values. Colour and luminance information is combined with data from the camera’s AF system.
Integrated Speedlite Transmitter
Explore new creative lighting possibilities. Control up to three groups of off-camera Speedlite flashguns using the EOS 7D’s Integrated Speedlite Transmitter.
The EOS 7D has been designed for use in the most demanding situations. A magnesium-alloy body is sealed against dust and moisture. An EOS Integrated Cleaning System ensures the camera’s sensor stays dust free for optimum image quality.
