Canon's new EOS 7D digital SLR camera packs a punch
The new Canon EOS 7D digital SLR camera, to be released at the end of September, is packed with great features, such as a 19-point auto-focus system which will help photographers handle really tricky focusing situations.
It offers 18 megapixels, with dual DIGIC 4 image processors and high ISO speed settings that range from 100 to 6,400 and can be pushed up to 12,800. The EOS 7D can shoot up to eight frames per second.
The camera’s magnesium body is durable up to 150,000 cycles and is dust and weather resistant. Also, the 7D has an iFCL metering system with a 63-zone dual-layer metering sensor. This will give you better accuracy in difficult lighting situations. There’s also the three-inch LCD view screen.
The 7D also packs a punch with video capturing as well, having a 1080p advanced movie capturing mode which will allow you to select frame rates of 24p, 25p, or 30p, as well as have full manual exposure during movie shooting. So, it acts like an actual camcorder, with the ability to stop and start video recording with the new Live View button.
This camera will be ideal for high-end amateur and professional photographers. The 7D will be compatible with over 60 Canon lenses and will sell for an estimated $2,099.99 (body only).
