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.

Save images that you take on camera in different formats like JPEG, M RAW, RAW and S RAW with Canon EOS 7D kit. You can watch the videos and images on a large screen HDTV with the help of HDMI mini out terminal. The images can also be saved on your laptop or computer with the help of the USB 2.0 high speed port. This will make space for new pictures and videos to be taken and saved on the Canon EOS 7D. Though it is an amazing buy for professional photographers, I would personally not recommended to beginners. For them it is a waste of money and time too… and frankly, even for me, it has been a waste of money as I am a beginner.Collected through an in-person interaction with the customer
"The Canon EOS 7D SLR Kit 18-1351S is a performance packed, dust and water resistant DSLR camera kit, full of excellent features. Its main features are:
• CMOS image sensor
• 18 megapixel camera
• ISO 100 – ISO 6400 Sensitivity
• 3 inch TFT color LCD screen
• Full HD recording
• Shutter Speed 30 - 1/8000 second
This kit is ideally meant for people who want to get into professional or semi-professional photography and shooting. There is much less noise/grains and enhanced clarity in the pictures taken by this camera even if you are shooting at high speeds. The kit is dust and weather resistant and very sturdy. The camera is an extremely easy to use digital SLR. The eye level pentaprism viewfinder can be used to compose images to the degree that I always wanted. The Canon EOS 7D is powered by lithium ion batteries which are rechargeable, but they can be replaced by AA size batteries. There are type I and II CF cards to store images and videos. Longer battery life and high quality of color reproduction is made possible by the Dual Digic 4 Processor. Images can be shot in 3:2 aspect ratio. I can shoot videos in Full HD with a pixel resolution of 1920 x 1080 dot. Personally recommended!!!
