The Canon EOS 7D is a digital SLR built on the needs of photographers - in fact, in the design process Canon consulted over 5,000 photographers to ask them what they needed most from their camera. Featuring 18 megapixels and a 19-point cross-type AF sensor, the 7D combines great accuracy with even greater flexibility. AF settings can be customised, enabling both photographer and camera to quickly adapt to the scene. A new metering system, the Focus Colour Luminance (iFCL) intelligently measures focus, colour and luminance across 63 zones. There is a dual layer sensor which gathers information from each distinct zone to produce an accurate, consistent exposure. In addition the 7D offers an Integrated Speedlite Transmitter, allowing photographers to control external speedlites with no additional accessories and Full HD 1080 movie shooting. More

Video: The Canon EOS 7D
18 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor
The EOS 7D offers superb resolution thanks to its 18MP CMOS sensor. Offering the photographer the choice of flexibility and creativity. APS-C is a type of digital camera sensor with an integral x1.6 magnification factor. This means that for all lenses (Canon, Sigma & Tamron) you have to x the focal length of your lens by the crop factor, which is 1.6. For example - Canon 50mm x 1.6 = 80mm. For a camera with a cropped sensor the field of view you actually get is 80mm.
Up to 8 frames per second
Shoot 18MP 14-bit images at up to 8 fps as standard, in a burst of up to 126 large JPEGs; photographers can capture both detail and action.
For handheld shooting in low light, the EOS 7D offers ISO speeds of up to 6400. Expandable to ISO 12800, for low light scenes where using flash is undesirable.
The EOS 7D viewfinder with 1.0x magnification provides the most complete and natural view of your subject. The Intelligent viewfinder offers shooting information never before seen in an EOS, including the Dual Axis Electronic Level to ensure perfect horizons.
19-point cross-type AF system
A newly designed AF sensor with Zone and Spot AF modes gives the photographer new ways to select AF points. All points are cross type with the centre point offering both f/2.8 and f/5.6 sensors.
iFCL metering system
A new 63-zone dual layer metering sensor analyses Focus, Colour and Luminance information, providing accurate and consistent metering.
Canon’s Dual “DIGIC 4” provides the EOS 7D with the power to deliver outstanding colour reproduction from its high resolution CMOS sensor. DIGIC 4 also delivers 14 bit processing, excellent noise reduction, long battery life, Face Detection AF and Full HD movie recording.
Full HD movie recording
Complementing outstanding still imaging capabilities with Full HD 1080 video recording including selectable frame rates and full manual control.
Integrated Speedlite Transmitter
The EOS 7D includes the ability to control multiple Speedlites without an ST-E2 or 580EX II, and includes a built-in 15mm wide angle flash. Expand your flash photography.
3.0” Clear View II LCD
The 3.0” Clear View II LCD features 920,000 dot resolution, a wide viewing angle and new solid structure for improved image viewing in bright conditions. Live View displays real-time images on the LCD, offering three auto focus modes.
Magnesium alloy body with environmental protection
The magnesium alloy body offers weather sealing equivalent to the acclaimed EOS-1N, EOS Integrated Cleaning System and 150,000 release shutter durability. The EOS 7D has been designed from the ground up to be used by the most demanding photographers.

Canon EOS 7D - Capture what you see
The Canon EOS 7D digital SLR features an Intelligent Viewfinder offering 100% frame coverage. For the first time, the EOS system offers 1.0x magnification, meaning photographers see a large, bright image. The transmissive LCD is incorporated within the viewfinder and allows photographers to decide which overlay feature - e.g. AF points, the spot metering circle and composition grid - is most useful to help frame the shot. The Canon EOS 7D Digital SLR is also the first in the EOS range to introduce a Dual-Axis Electronic Level (in both the viewfinder and on the LCD) that indicated both pitch and roll angles. This feature is especially useful when shooting landscapes to ensure a level horizon, or when used in conjunction with a Canon Tilt & Shift lens.
The Canon EOS 7D digital SLR has a 3" Clear View II LCD screen with a solid structure screen that has been designed to combat glare by removing the air-gap between the LCD's protective cover and the liquid crystal. Featuring a viewing angle of 160 degrees, the 3" LCD screen is effective even in bright light. An ambient light sensor on the side of the screen, like on the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, can set brightness automatically depending on the environment.
Canon EOS 7D - Be creative
An Integrated Speedlite Transmitter means photographers can control external Speedlites with no additional accessories, making the Canon EOS 7D perfect for those looking to experiment with lighting. The built-in flash has been extensively upgraded and includes both wider flash coverage for focal lengths as wide as 15mm, and manual control.
Canon EOS 7D - Customise your camera
In keeping with Canon's endeavour to make the Canon EOS 7D the perfect tool for photographers, all the features and functions are customisable to the individual photographers needs. Frequently used functions and settings can be assigned to convenient controls, meaning valuable time can be saved when shooting critical moments.

A quality product.
Initial results are promising and I am still learning how to get the best from this camera.
Always difficult to get right...
Got to be happy with that.

Great for Nature/Wildlife
By Alan in Cornwall
from Camborne. Cornwall
Moving from an EOS 50D to the EOS 7D was a revelation. Photo quality, handling and full menu system has taken my photography to a new level, on top of that, 8 frames a second!!!At first it took a while to get used to the huge change from the EOS 50D I was used to. Although the camera felt similar, the using of it is very different indeed. The faster and more complete autofocus system has made my shots easier to take and far more crisp. As I like to take nature photographs, the 7D seems to be built for the job. Using a Canon 100-400mm L lens, on a tripod this camera comes into its own. Many things have been written about the 7D, some good some bad, but after a couple of months use I can honestly say my photography has never been better. Indeed it is hard to imagine how Canon will top this.I thoroughly recommend this camera to anyone who loves their photography.

Great Upgrade - Serious camera
About Me Casual Photographer
After using the 450D, I upgraded to the 7D and the images were far clearer and very rich in tone. Only problem is that the controls are reversed and it is is taking a little time to get used to.Very happy with the purchase.

Knocks my EOS 50D into a cocked hat
Upgrading from my lovely 50D was always going to be difficult as all my best shots were taken on it. After reading everything I could concerning the EOS 7D I felt it was a good move. Thank goodness I did. The difference is quite remarkable, indeed far more than I ever hoped.First of all, the camera itself sits very happily in the hand, especially when I attach my Canon 100mm L macro lens. I love macro photography and this combination is indeed the 'bees knees'. Auto focus is quite and precise and all the controls are easy to find and use. If I had one small moan it would be that the rear control wheel is a bit stiff, but better that than too loose I suppose.I also couple the 7D with my Canon 100-400mm for wildlife shots - another marriage made in heaven.The camera feels very solid and is a good weight that feels right in the hands. I have not yet used it for video as all I really wanted is a stills camera, but after the reviews I have read perhaps I will try it out as a video camera.The rapid 8 frames a second shooting rate (when needed) is amazing, especially for capturing the perfect bird in flight shot. The viewfinder is clear and bright and great for any live view shots you might want to take. All in all, Canon have come up with another winner - as for my 50D, that has gone as I could not see any reason to hold on to it, after all it would only gather dust.

A thing of beauty is a joy forever
Only had camera a few weeks, but loving it already. Still exploring and learning. I've got some nice industrial monochromes, incredible detail.Looking forward to taking it to South Africa later in year to continue my passion for wildlife.

One of Canon's best offerings
By Clive B
I purchased my 7D when they were first released, up until Canon released this camera non of the DSLR offerings met my needs, my 20D is a nice little camera and very convinient but a 35mm replacement it is not. In particular I wanted a fast frame rate and 8FPS hit the mark. Add to that the AF system and 18MP APS-C sensor it seemed to be a camera buit for me.I was not dissapointed, the 7D delivers in spades, I really like the controls though some could perhaps be better placed but that is just my taste. The AF works really well particularly with moving subjects and is easily configured for the type of shots you are taking.Version 2 software has added some extra features / improvements. I can't comment about in camera JPEG processing as I only shoot to RAW, indeed I don't understand why high end cameras include JPEG processing at all; I don't care how good the camera is at producing JPEG images, Photoshop et al will do the job better!If you are in to wildlife photograpy this body is a first rate choice, sensor performance in low light is not as good as I might like, (its not bad though), but then the best wildlife photograpy is generally not done in low light so I have never really found this to be an issue.DSLRs have improved greatly but even my 5D MkIII still falls short of good old 35mm especially in dynamic range. I look forward to the day that you can buy a DSLR body and only have to replace it because it has worn out.
