Review: Canon EOS 7D Mark II

Gordon Laing of CameraLabs has completed his extensive review of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II. As with most of the reviews I’ve seen , he has come away very impressed with the current king of the APS-C DSLR. The autofocus, build quality, image quality and features make it a very attractive camera at its price point.

From CameraLabs
“Canon’s EOS 7D Mark II becomes one of the toughest, fastest and most confident DSLRs for sports and action photography. If you always wanted the flagship 1Dx but couldn’t afford it or accommodate the size and weight, the 7D Mark II will give you most of its handling performance in a smaller, lighter and much cheaper package. Indeed it’ll also throw-in AF in lower light, effective focusing for movies and a built-in GPS receiver. Sure it can’t compete with full-frame cleanliness in low light, but the field reduction applied by the APSC sensor is actually preferred by many sports and wildlife photographers.”

According to Amazon and another local retailer, we should start seeing the Canon EOS 7D Mark II shipping on October 30, 2014. If you select overnight shipping, you should have it for Hallowe’en and that’ll be a great evening to test the ISO abilities of this new APS-C camera.

B&H Photo and Adorama are still showing November for availability.

“Cello” Short Film Shot With the Canon EOS 7D Mark II

Canon USA has posted a short film shot entirely with the Canon EOS 7D Mark II and a bunch of different Canon EF and EF-S lenses.

There’s one feature pointed out by The Digital Picture that looks to be a great feature for videographers:

“While Movie Servo AF isn’t exactly new, the EOS 7D Mark II brings a very important feature to the party – the ability to customize focus speed and responsiveness while shooting video. Take a look at the focus pull at the 2:13 mark; it’s absolutely beautiful. The ability to slow down the camera’s focus transition allowed for a very natural-looking focus pull.”
