Canon EOS 7D review by imaging-resource.com

Imaging-Resource.com just posted a comprehensive review of the Canon EOS 7D that is worth reading. It is long but worth the time.

“The Canon 7D is the digital SLR that many Canon fans have been waiting for, with a list of long-absent features that the lineup has needed to take on cameras like the Nikon D300…”

“The Canon 7D is designed for speed, with dual DIGIC 4 chips to speed processing of these large 14-bit files, as well as keep up with the shutter’s 8-frame-per-second top speed. Even the sensor had to be tweaked to enable such speed, with an 8-channel readout to more quickly draw the image off the sensor.”

“The Canon 7D’s buffer can handle 94 JPEGs at top speed, or 15 RAW images…”

“The built-in flash has a wider range to handle up to 15mm wide-angle lenses, like the new EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, and the flash can also serve as the remote commander for up to three groups of flashes, another first for Canon.”

“Other new features include an electronic level, a RAW button, and a new Multi-function button for quick, programmable access to various functions. And don’t forget the new 19-point autofocus system, complete with a new LCD viewfinder display overlay, complete with a grid, obviating the need for interchangeable screens…”
