The Canon EOS 7D is an 18 megapixel Digital SLR. Key features include the ability to shoot at 8 frames per second. This is likely to make the EOS 7D attractive to sports and wildlife photographers who are looking to capture fast moving subjects.
Focusing options include a 19 point, cross type AF system. The AF system offers a range of manual and automatic settings. These include Zone and Spot AF. You can customise the AF settings to suit your own requirements. This includes the ability to set different AF points for vertical and horizontal orientation. This allows photographers to switch between landscape and portrait shots without changing settings.
Canon claims that the EOS 7D contains improvements for shooting at higher ISO settings. The ISO range is 100 to 6400. This is expandable up to ISO 12800. The viewfinder offers 100% coverage. On the back of the camera you will find a 3 inch LCD screen.
As is now becoming increasing common, there is a High Definition movie mode. This increases your creative options and allows you to shoot high quality movie footage to complement your stills photography.
The body of the EOS 7D is made from a magnesium alloy.
