The Canon EOS 7D is actually Canon's main APS-C digital camera. It is made to compete with DSLR cameras like the Nikon D300S. This includes a higher mega-pixel count which has an affordable price. In many aspects, this kind of digital camera can also compete with Canon's 5D Mark II and, if you do not want a full frame digital camera, you would be challenged to get a reason to purchase the much more expensive 5D.
Canon is the market boss when it comes to DSLR camera for a long period, making both professional “full frame” cameras and consumer “crop frame” cameras.
After that, both Sony and Nikon began generating digital cameras that remain and sometimes surpassed Canon's customer offerings. This Canon EOS 7D is the Canon's response to their competitors.
Having 18 mega-pixels and also a strong magnesium physique, this kind of digital camera certainly drops right into a center group of consumers, such as those who desire something one step upward from the consumer DSLR. Additionally, it has a very low price. But will it take the crown in relation to APS-C format digital cameras?
Picture quality on this camera is very excellent. In a low ISO, the picture quality is outstanding in this kind of DSLR camera. The thing that could make this camera down on the quality is an inexpensive lens!
This DSLR camera also works effectively in low light situations. One problem with quality would be the camera's propensity to overexpose on extreme contrast situations. However, this can be prevented when you take pictures in RAW.
One good function of Canon EOS 7D is the built-in popup flash and also the Speedlite transmitter. It means that the digital camera will wirelessly manage off flashes, through being a trigger light.
Canon has not resolved problems with automatic white balance within artificial lighting situations, and the 7D is not exempt. If you need best whites indoors, you will probably want to use the Custom White Balance configuration.
Obviously, unless of course you are in a studio and want the best white balance, you might be pleased to allow this to slide. The effect, however, is the whites may have a noticeably yellow tinge. It is possible to make amends for this one by shooting in RAW also, and then you overlay your own changes in post-production.
