Product Features in Detail
18.0 Megapixel CMOS Sensor and Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors for high image quality and speed
The EOS 7D features a Canon-designed 18.0 Megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor that captures such a high level of resolution it’s easy to crop images for enlargement without concern of losing detail. A major factor in reducing noise, the CMOS sensor assures that images shot at highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth. Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors ensure that images are captured, processed and saved with remarkable speed. The EOS 7D’s ability to capture and process data of images shot at 18.0 Megapixels at 8.0 fps, as well as Face Detection Live Mode, Full HD video recording, Auto Lighting Optimizer and Lens Peripheral optimization are all possible thanks to the Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors.
ISO 100–6400 (expandable to 12800) for shooting from bright to dim light
With a broad range of ISO settings, the EOS 7D enables shooting from dawn through dusk and ensures capture of the finest detail. With enhanced, low-noise high-sensitivity optimization, shooting in situations previously possible only with flash becomes as simple as point and shoot.
8.0 fps continuous shooting up to 130*/** JPEG Large/Fine and 25*/** RAW images
Capable of shooting up to 130*/** JPEG Large/Fine and 25*/** RAW images at 8.0 fps, the EOS 7D is a perfect camera for action. Canon’s remarkable shutter, combined with speedy, sophisticated electronics, ensures instant response and performance. A rapidly-occurring scene can be captured moment by moment, second by second, so that even the briefest of opportunities are captured in perfect clarity.
**Firmware upgrade (Version 2.0.X) is required.
Advanced movie mode with manual exposure control, manual audio level** control (64 levels) and selectable frame rates: 1920 x 1080 (Full HD): 30p (29.97) / 24p (23.976) / 25p, 1280 x 720 (HD): 60p (59.94) / 50p, 640 x 480 (SD): 60p (59.94) / 50p

**Firmware upgrade (Version 2.0.X) is required
Three Recording Sizes
Full HD Video is captured at 1920 x 1080 resolution at 30p (29.97), 24p (23.976) or 25p frames per second, for up to 4GB per clip. Videos are saved as .MOV files and can be viewed in Full HD with HDMI output. Other recording sizes include HD at 1280 x 720 (50p/60p (59.94) fps) or SD/VGA at 640 x 480 (50p/60p (59.94) fps).
Intelligent Viewfinder with 100% field of view, wide viewing angle of 29.4°, high magnification of 1.0, intelligent viewfinder with glass pentaprism and an overlaid LCD display in viewfinder supports various shooting styles
The EOS 7D features a phenomenal, redesigned viewfinder that not only offers 100 percent coverage, 1x magnification, a 29.4° angle of view and user-controlled dioptric adjustment, it also features a transparent LCD display which enables a number of viewfinder displays to be overlaid at the touch of a button. Whereas with other cameras the representation of AF points and metering areas are static, with the EOS 7D, they can be displayed, adjusted and hidden, in camera, with ease. This means less distraction and more clarity to view the image in its entirety. Display options include: grid, spot metering, AF points display, hide all, zone AF, spot (single-point) AF, AF point expansion and Dual Axis Electronic Level display.
The EOS 7D even features a brilliant Dual Axis Electronic Level and tilt display that aids in achieving perfectly level shots, displaying both roll and pitch in 1° increments, either in the viewfinder or on the LCD.
19-point, all cross-type AF system equipped with dual diagonal cross-type sensors in center at f/2.8 and f/5.6 and AF area selection modes to match various shooting situations
Canon packed its most advanced technologies into the EOS 7D’s AF system. With 19 high precision, cross-type AF sensors, any of which can be selected automatically or manually, the EOS 7D is equipped to handle even the trickiest of focus situations with ease. The high-speed microcomputers in the EOS 7D use advanced algorithms that help ensure the fastest, most accurate AF performance under the widest variety of conditions. In addition, Canon’s Light Source detection AF automatically compensates the focus by taking into account artificial lighting sources and making appropriate adjustments and the EOS 7D’s Intelligent Macro focusing tracks the object or the camera’s movement when shooting close-up, to ensure focus is never lost. AF modes can be customized to suit the situation, ensuring reliable focus, every time.
iFCL Metering with 63 zone dual-layer metering sensor that utilizes AF and color information for optimizing exposure and image quality
The EOS 7D features a 63 zone dual-layer sensor designed to complement the 19-point AF system. By taking into account the color and luminosity surrounding chosen AF points, this system delivers high levels of accuracy for better results even in difficult lighting situations. Since the metering sensor has a color measurement function, exposure errors and focus errors caused by different light sources are minimized; the EOS 7D gives stable exposure from shot to shot in situations where light changes, such as in a theater or concert hall. This makes the EOS 7D ideal for scenes with extreme difference in brightness such as brightly lit scenes or backlit scenes; the camera balances exposure of the main subject at the background, and exposures are not overly influenced by bright areas in the shot.
Magnesium body with shutter durability up to 150,000 cycles and exclusive dust and weather resistance
The EOS 7D is constructed of the highest quality materials, to exacting standards to ensure unfettered performance at all times. For example, the shutter can shoot at speeds up to 1/8000 sec. for 150,000 cycles; the chassis is built of lightweight and rigid magnesium, and the camera’s seals are built to resist water and dust. This combination makes the EOS 7D ready for anything.
Compatible with the optional GPS Receiver GP-E2*/** to record the time and location information of images
With the Firmware Version 2.0.X installed, the EOS 7D offers full compatibility with Canon’s amazing optional GPS Receiver GP-E2*/**. The GPS Receiver GP-E2 records location*** information such as longitude, latitude, elevation, and direction as EXIF data. It has a rugged, compact design, connects to the EOS 7D via USB and uses readily available AA batteries.
*Firmware upgrade (Version 2.0.X) is required.
**When the EOS 7D is used with the GP-E2 the following restrictions will apply: a) geotagging function will not work for movies while recording; b) geotagging features will not work for movies when using the Map Utility; c) electronic compass information and automatic time setting is not available; d) transmission via the hot shoe is not possible.
***In certain countries and regions, the use of GPS may be restricted. Therefore, be sure to use GPS in accordance with the laws and regulations of your country or region. Be particularly careful when traveling outside your home country. As a signal is received from GPS satellites, take sufficient measures when using in locations where the use of electronics is regulated.
Manual Audio Level Adjustment
For the ultimate in custom audio when recording video, the audio level can be manually adjusted to one of 64 levels. And to prevent mistakes in sound recording, an icon indicating manual audio recording is displayed on the Info screen during video shooting.
In-camera RAW image processing
With Firmware Version 2.0.X, the EOS 7D can process RAW files, in-camera, to produce JPEG files that can be quickly sent over the internet to be delivered to clients. Image processing settings such as White Balance, Picture Style, Auto Lighting Optimizer, High ISO Noise Reduction, JPEG Quality, Color Space, Lens Peripheral Illumination Correction, Distortion Correction and Lens Aberration Correction can be applied to RAW images, in-camera, for optimal results without a computer.
In-camera JPEG image resizing
For quick resizing of recorded JPEG images, the EOS 7D can resize JPEG “L” and “M” images and save them as separate JPEG “M” and “S” images.
To help keep track of a specific image, or to organize a number of images easily, the EOS 7D offers a rating system of 0–5 stars, easily selectable during playback. Along with the rating system, the EOS 7D’s image browsing (jump) and slide show features have been improved, enabling the user to browse image and watch slide shows according to rating.
Quick Control during playback
With Firmware Version 2.0.X, users of the EOS 7D can access a number of features during playback via the Quick Control button. Images can be protected, rotated, resized, highlight alert and AF point displays can be accessed, and image jump can be accessed via the main dial.
Customization of file names
Firmware Version 2.0.X enables the customization of file names. With customization of file names, it’s simple to set the first four characters of the file name (replacing the default “IMG_”). With User setting 1, the first four characters can be replaced with alphanumeric characters, and with user setting 2, the first three characters are user defined, with the last character reflecting the image quality as shown here: “***L”, “***M” and “***S”
Time zone settings
For frequent travelers, the EOS 7D now offers simple time zone settings, making it quick and easy to define not only time zone, but also daylight savings time. When shooting in a different time zone, the camera can be set to record according to the local time. Upon the return home, reverting to the original time zone is quick and easy.
Faster scrolling of magnified images
For quick check of focus and detail, the upgrade significantly speeds up scrolling of magnified images. This increased speed makes it easier to know if the shot captured is correct, or whether recomposing and focusing is necessary.
