Canon EOS 7D Digital SLR Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 8.33 (out of 10)
Review (Summary): "... However, the 7D isn't just a 50D with a new sensor, viewfinder and revised body - other headline changes include a new AF system with a dedicated processor, dual Digic 4 processors and a new shutter mechanism to allow 8fps continuous shooting, and the ability to control groups of external flashguns using its built-in flash. ...

... It offers excellent image quality in all shooting situations and an impressive speed of operation, combined with very good build quality and ergonomics...."

Review (Summary): "Despite having a single digit name, the 7D does not feature a full-frame sensor. Instead it sticks with the smaller APS-C sized sensor of the consumer DSLR ranges, but complements it with a wealth of professional features that go beyond the existing EOS 50D and in some respects even the EOS 5D Mark II. ...

Canon's EOS 7D is a tough and very quick semi-pro DSLR that's an absolute joy to use. It may look similar to the earlier EOS 50D from the front, but inside features a huge array of enhancements across the board, many of which surpass even the EOS 5D Mark II. ..."

Imaging-Resource 8.26  09-02-09 Read Full Review
Review (Summary): "... Not shying away from the megapixel race, the new Canon 7D has a brand new 18-megapixel APS-C sensor with a 1.6x crop factor. Each pixel is 4.3 microns in size, though Canon says that with their gapless microlenses, the new sensor gathers plenty of light. ...

... Image quality finishes the list of the Canon 7D's strengths. Canon managed to exceed the resolution of all competitors while improving image quality at all ISO settings. Even the 12,800 setting is usable when printed at 8x10, straight from the camera. ..."

Review (Summary): "The Canon EOS 7D is an 18 megapixel digital SLR camera incorporating a new APS-C CMOS sensor designed and manufactured by Canon. Featuring a revised photodiode and microlens construction, the 7D’s sensor offers a versatile ISO range of 100-12,800 ...

You may think that bumping the megapixel count to 18 on such a comparatively small sensor would only degrade the resulting photos, but thankfully you'd be wrong. The new 18 megapixel CMOS sensor and expanded ISO range produce virtually no visible noise at all from ISO 100 all the way up to ISO 1600 ..."

CNET Review 7.31  12-12-09 Read Full Review
Review (Summary): "The biggest draw for current Canon users thinking of stepping up from the 50D (or that class of camera) to the 7D is the improved autofocus and better photo quality at higher ISO sensitivities; it's significantly better than the 50D in those respects, and well worth the price differential. ...

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the 7D's photo quality. The higher-resolution sensor necessarily has extremely small pixels, which never bodes well for image quality. ..."

Review (Summary): "The 7D is the first EOS with a 19 point cross-type AF sensor with Zone AF using a separate AF processor to enable autofocus which is quick enough to keep up with the camera' eight frames-per-second shooting speed. ...

It is a £1700 DSLR so you would be perfectly entitled to expect a great deal for your money. The good news, in the most part, is that you get it. This is a classy feature-rich DSLR that has a reassuringly robust body so should easily withstand even severe knocks and bumps. ..."

Engadget 4.16  11-17-09 Read Full Review
Review (Summary): "... Now we're in the midst of another monumental camera shift, and it's not the 3D revolution that everyone predicted. Nope, in 2009 we make our movies on DSLRs. Just how good are they? Well, the recently released Canon EOS 7D may just be the new Engadget workhorse. ...

... With the 7D, Canon is offering a choice of multiple framerates for video recording for the first time. You can now record at 23.98 fps, 29.97 fps, or 59.98 fps. The 59.98 recording mode downscales the video to 720p, but it's great for an "overcranked" slow-motion effect when conformed back to 23.98 on your computer. ..."
