Canon 7D APS-C and a fast 8 frames per Second.



New Canon EOS 7D
18mp APS-C CMOS
Dual DiGiC 4, 14bit
8fps, 94 large fine jpegs or 15 RAWs
19 points cross type AF sensor. Center AF point uses cross plus X type AF sensor
ISO 100-6400, extend to 12800
100% coverage, 1.0x opitcal viewfinder with smart information display.
3.0‘ LCD, 920,000 dot
New iFCL metering system, brightness and color
150,000 shutter life cycle
internal e-ttl flash control

Could be interesting, but I will have to see how they handle image quality with 18mp on an APS-C camera, also a trio of lenes including an EF 100 f2.8 IS L Macro with a pair of EF-S zooms.
The Pro type auto focus sure looks nice, birders and sports photog's will love this one. Basically it looks like a Pro Crop camera with some interesting new features including: electronic level, color metering, duel processor, %100 view finder and more. Fully sealed ? sounds like it.
Diffraction Limit f/6.8
Crop 1.6x
Pixel size 4.3┬Ám
Image size 5184 x 3456

  1. I hate it. I was saving up to upgrade my 450D to 5D, now what do I do? :-) Nice to have choices I guess. Problem is I want to do some flash work and the new 7D has a built in slave controller, 5D doesn't. Full frame sure is nice though huh.

  2. Greg you will get better image quality with a 5D and the ST-E2 flash controller. 7D is for sports and wildlife. Don't get caught up in the must upgrade crowd.

  3. yeah, I think you are right. I like landscape, no sports or anything. Plus, I got to thinking, if the 7D becomes really popular, the demand for the 5D2 will finally go down a bit and perhaps I will save a buck or two.

    Happy shooting,
