Overview

Description by Canon:

 18 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor

The EOS 7D offers superb resolution thanks to its 18MP CMOS sensor. Offering the photographer the choice of flexibility and creativity.

8 frames per second
Shoot 18MP 14-bit images at 8 fps as standard, in a burst of up to 126 large JPEGs; photographers can capture both detail and action.

High ISO
For handheld shooting in low light, the EOS 7D offers ISO speeds of up to 6400. Expandable to ISO 12800, for low light scenes where using flash is undesirable.

100% Viewfinder coverage
The 100% coverage viewfinder with 1.0x magnification provides the most complete and natural view of your subject. The Intelligent viewfinder offers shooting information never before seen in an EOS, including the Dual Axis Electronic Level to ensure perfect horizons.

19-point cross-type AF system
A newly designed AF sensor with Zone and Spot AF modes gives the photographer new ways to select AF points. All points are cross type with the centre point offering both f/2.8 and f/5.6 sensors.

iFCL metering system
A new 63-zone dual layer metering sensor analyses Focus, Colour and Luminance information, providing accurate and consistent metering.

DIGIC 4
Canon’s Dual “DIGIC 4” provides the EOS 7D with the power to deliver outstanding colour reproduction from its high resolution CMOS sensor. DIGIC 4 also delivers 14 bit processing, excellent noise reduction, long battery life, Face Detection AF and Full HD movie recording. 

Full HD movie recording
Complementing outstanding still imaging capabilities with Full HD 1080 video recording including selectable frame rates and full manual control. 

Integrated Speedlite Transmitter
EOS 7D includes the ability to control multiple Speedlites without an ST-E2 or 580EX II, and includes a built-in 15mm wide angle flash. Expand your flash photography. 

3.0” Clear View II LCD
The 3.0” Clear View II LCD features 920,000 dot resolution, a wide viewing angle and new solid structure for improved image viewing in bright conditions. Live View displays real-time images on the LCD, offering three auto focus modes.

Magnesium alloy body with environmental protection
The magnesium alloy body offers weather sealing equivalent to the acclaimed EOS-1N, EOS Integrated Cleaning System and 150,000 release shutter durability. The EOS 7D has been designed from the ground up to be used by the most demanding photographers.

Reviews

Firmware version 2.0.3 incorporates the following fixes.

1. Fixes a phenomenon in which the camera stops working when the auto power off setting takes effect.

2. Fixes a phenomenon in which the maximum number of images that can be captured in a burst may be less than the actual number displayed in the viewfinder.

Article also includes a rough hands-on plus more interesting tidbits, but keep in mind it's written from a Canon-user perspective: "The ergonomics of the D7000 for video use is pretty poor. For example, the magnification assist buttons are located to the lower left of the 3.0" color display. This forces you to use the left hand to magnify the screen, then go back to the lens

This is his last review for this decade, Jeff Keller says, and what better way to celebrate that, than a review of a Canon camera that will go down in Dslr history: "Overall, the EOS-7D's image quality was very good, though there are a few areas that could be improved upon. Both of those areas happen to fall in the exposure department. While most of the time the 7D produce photos with accurate exposure, it did overexpose at times. And, like a compact camera with too

The extensiveness of this review can only be matched by those of Dpreview. But these guys also add a nice, comprehensive video section too. I'd say its One of the top 5 reviews of the 7D: "The Canon 7D essentially functions under automatic control in every mode except Manual mode. In all the other modes shutter speed, aperture, and

Cnet is known for these mini reviews they cook up in 5 minutes, but this one is actually ok: "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. Things

One of the better reviews out there: "Any of the modes worked well with static subjects, although users should keep in mind when using the auto select or zone methods that all AF points in the selected zone are used to acquire focus and will tend to focus on the nearest subject. For moving subjects I found that AF point expansion worked best
