This camera boasts a great build, amazing speed and snappy auto focus
This avatar of the groundbreaking Canon EOS 7D now features a 20 megapixel sensor that has been upgraded to a dual pixel CMOS, enabling a smooth and consistent autofocus. The new sensor has a native ISO capability of 16,000, thus letting you take pictures even when it is literally pitch dark.
The 7D Mark II features a 65-point cross type auto focus, and to make sure you can easily toggle between all its different Auto Focus modes, Canon adds an AF Area Selection lever. The 7D Mark II can also shoot at 10 frames per second at its full resolution of 20.2 megapixels. The camera uses a 150,000 pixels RBG + IR metering system to ensure that your settings are accurate.
The 7D Mark II comes with GPS on board, so that all your images are geo-tagged. The camera also has a built-in compass, so it will let you know your bearings and direction of focus, apart from the location of your photos.
The weather sealed magnesium alloy body is dust and water resistant. There is no on-board wireless, but Canon has accessories that let you transfer files wirelessly.
The camera takes a CF card and SD card at the same time. You can configure the cards to be a replica, or a spillover, or save RAW images on one and JPEG images on the other. The battery of the 7D Mark II has been improved and now you can take over 600 shots on a single charge. There is a provision for connecting an external microphone and an external headphone to monitor the sound that’s getting recorded.
The 7D Mark II is not a full-frame camera, but with its amazing speed of 10 frames per second at full resolution, and the native ISO of 16,000, this camera is a great buy if you need a camera that is fast, can be taken anywhere you want, and takes some seriously good shots.
