The camera boasts of a faster burst rate where you can take a maximum of 8 frames per second this makes it easier for you to take action photographs and even cute photos of your baby or toddler in motion. Another feature worth mentioning in the Canon 7D is its dual image processors which let the camera handle better, faster and with more efficiency this camera has a better body construction made of magnesium alloy which is stronger than the lower models that come with a polycarbonate plastic body.
The view the camera offers through its viewfinder is 100% much better than the view offered by other cameras and once you pick it up you will definitely get impressed with its overall feel and it’s superior performance. While the APS-C sensor has always been the factor separating cameras from full-frame models, the Canon 7D has an APS-C sensor that’s similar to the 1D and 5D Mark III, making it comparable to full-frame models.
Through tests to this camera we as users find it difficult to find any faults with the image quality of this model becuase of the quality of the pictures, also unlike the full-frame models you can use the camera with any lens that has auto-focus capabilities.
Shooting video with this camera is one of the big pros because of its HD video shooting feature, it has a video manual exposure control with shutter speed and aperture control which results in clear and dynamic video, if you are worried about the sound well leave your worries behind because the Canon 7D comes with a built in mono microphone and a stereo jack for external microphone so you’ll get very professional results with a mid-range dslr camera.
One big drawback is that the viewfinder is not pivotal so when shooting video you cant tilt the viewfinder when you are shooting from above or below your height which is a thing that some other cameras of the same level offer. Talking about drawbacks we should mention the 18MP shy resolution, however it is hardly noticed to the untrained eye of the general public, even that of the expert at times.
So if you want to pursue photography as a hobby or passion, this is a camera you should and could start out with. The features the camera offer make it a piece of technological gear that overcome all expectations and as a result we have excellent photo and video performance.
