Canon EOS 7D DSLR Offers Enhanced Features for Mid-Range Photography


Canon has created the EOS 7D, an 18-megapixel SLR camera with fast 8-frame-per-second (fps) continuous shooting, full HD video recording, and enhanced autofocus and manual exposure controls.

Shooting speed, increased to 8 fps, can freeze fast movements while retaining high resolution. With a film speed range of ISO 100 to ISO 6400, the EOS 7D has the capability to capture low-light images without a flash. The ISO is also expandable up to 12,800 with a flash.

Metering is adjusted with the 63-zone iFCL (intelligent focus, color and luminance) system. Image exposure can also be tuned with an easy-to-see spot-metering circle.

HD video exposure can be manually adjusted and shot in three recording modes: full HD at 1,920 x 1,080-pixel resolution in selectable frame rates of 24p, 25p or 30p; 720p HD recording at 50p or 60p; and SD video at frame rates of 50p or 60p.

Focusing features are calibrated with a multi-axis, cross-type, 19-point autofocus system that can be easily displayed on the viewfinder. AF mode adds diagonal cross-type sensors for f/2.8 and larger aperture shots. Other focus modes include spot AF, AF point switching and zone AF.

Additional features include intelligent macro tracking to reduce camera shake, wireless file transfer capabilities, pop-up flash and a 3-inch Clear View II LCD screen.

The camera is available in a body-only configuration at an estimated retail price of $1,699 or in a kit with an EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM zoom lens for $1,899.
