Canon EOS 7D SLR Body
With a host of brand new features designed to enhance every aspect of the photographic process, from still images to video, the new Canon EOS 7D SLR Body represents a whole new class of SLR’s. The tool of choice for serious photographers and semi-professionals, the EOS 7D features a 18.0 Megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor and Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors, capturing tremendous images at up to ISO 12800 and speeds of up to 8 fps. The EOS 7D has a new all cross-type 19-point AF system with improved AI Servo II AF subject tracking and user-specific AF area selection modes for sharp focus. The EOS 7D's Intelligent Viewfinder, a newly-designed technology, provides approximately 100% coverage and displays user-selected AF modes as well as a spot metering circle and grid lines.
New iFCL metering with 63-zone dual-layer metering system uses both focus and colour information to provide accurate exposure even in dark lighting. The Canon EOS 7D also captures Full HD video at 30p (29.97 fps), 24p (23.976 fps) and 25p with an array of manual controls, including manual exposure during movie shooting and ISO speeds. The EOS 7D features a magnesium alloy body that is dust resistant and has shutter durability of up to 150,000 cycles. Compatible with over 60 EF and EF-S lenses as well as with EOS System accessories, the opportunities here are beyond amazement.

The EOS 7D features a Canon-designed 18.0 Megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor that captures high level of resolution it's easy to crop images for enlargement without losing any detail. A major factor in reducing noise, the CMOS sensor assures that images shot at highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth. Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors ensure that images are captured, processed and saved with remarkable speed. The EOS 7D's ability to capture and process data of images shot at 18.0 Megapixels at 8 fps, as well as Face Detection Live Mode, Full HD video recording, Auto Lighting Optimization and Lens Peripheral optimization are all possible thanks to the Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors.
Excellence in Low Lighting
With many ISO settings, the EOS 7D enables shooting from dawn through dusk ensuring the finest details. With enhanced, low-noise high-sensitivity optimization, shooting in such situations previously possible only with flash becomes as simple as point and shoot.
The Speed Needed
Capable of shooting up to 126 Large/JPEGs with a UDMA CF card and 15 RAW at 8 fps, the EOS 7D is a perfect camera. Canon's remarkable shutter, combined with speedy, sophisticated electronics, ensures amazing performance. A rapidly-occurring scene can be captured moment by moment, second by second;every opportunityis captured in perfect clarity.
HD Dreams Alive
Having the most advanced EOS movie capturing features, the EOS 7D does not just shoot video clips, it offers the enhanced image quality, smoother frame rates and adaptive exposure compensation necessary in a professional movie-making tool. By shooting video with a large sensor camera, it's simple to take advantage of the image characteristics intrinsic to SLR photography and not necessarily to video cameras. The EOS 7D enables manual control of exposure, focus and Live View features and allows in-camera editing. And it's all as easy as the press of a button — the EOS 7D has a dedicated Live View/Movie Recording lever with a start/stop button that gets the shooting started fast.
Three Recording Sizes
Full HD Video is captured at 1920 x 1080 resolution at 30p (29.97), 24p (23.976) or 25p frames per second, for up to 4GB per clip. Movies are saved as .MOV files and can be viewed in Full HD with HDMI output. Other recording sizes include HD at 1280 x 720 (50p/60p (59.94) fps) or SD/VGA at 640 x 480 (50p/60p (59.94) fps).
The EOS 7D features a redesigned viewfinder that not only offers 100 % coverage, 1x magnification, a 29.4° angle of view and user-controlled dioptric adjustment, it also features a newly-designed transparent LCD display which enables a number of viewfinder displays at the touch of a button. Whereas with other cameras the representation of AF points and metering areas are static, with the EOS 7D, they can be displayed, adjusted and hidden, in camera, with ease. Display options include: grid, spot metering, AF points display, hide all, zone AF, spot (single-point) AF, AF point expansion and Dual Axis Electronic Level display.The EOS 7D even features a brilliant new Dual Axis Electronic Level and tilt display that aids in achieving perfectly level shots, displaying both roll and pitch in 1° increments, either in the viewfinder or on the LCD.
Faster, Accurate AF
Canon packed its most advanced technologies into the EOS 7D's AF system. With 19 high-precision, cross-type AF sensors, any of which can be selected automatically or manually, the EOS 7D is equipped to handle even the trickiest of focus situations with ease. The high-speed microcomputers in the EOS 7D use advanced algorithms that help ensure the fastest, most accurate AF performance under the widest variety of conditions. In addition, Canon's Light Source detection AF automatically compensates the focus by taking into account artificial lighting sources and making appropriate adjustments and the EOS 7D's new Intelligent Macro focusing tracks the object or the camera's movement when shooting close-up, to ensure focus is never lost.
Ensures Accurate Exposure
The EOS 7D features a new, 63 zone dual-layer sensor designed to complement the 19-point AF system. This new system delivers an entirely new level of accuracy for better results even in difficult lighting situations. Since the metering sensor has a colour measurement function, exposure errors and focus errors caused by different light sources are minimized; the EOS 7D gives stable exposure from shot to shot in situations where light changes. This makes the EOS 7D ideal for scenes with extreme difference in brightness such as brightly lit scenes or backlit scenes; the camera balances exposure of the subject at the background, and exposures are not overly influenced by bright areas in the shot.
Built to Perform
The EOS 7D is constructed of the highest quality materials, to exacting standards to ensure unfettered performance at all times. For 150,000 cycles; the chassis is built of lightweight and rigid magnesium, and the camera's seals are built to resist water and dust.
