Canon EOS 7D Price in US

For a number of years, the Canon X0D series was essentially the go-to option for serious enthusiasts, professionals, and aspiring professionals who desired top-level image quality and functionality but didn’t want the heft (or price) of a professional-level camera like the 1D series. This was especially true for Canon users. You didn’t need to spend a lot of time behind the lens with the Canon EOS 10D, 20D, or 30D cameras to figure out why they were such a great commercial success and how popular they were. However, just as in every other segment of the market for DSLR cameras, there are a few competitors who are quite competitive, both in terms of price and functionality. The most recent X0D EOS models have had to live up to larger expectations and have had a more difficult time standing out from the crowd as a result of the existence of cameras such as Sony’s A700 and Nikon’s D200 and 300.

Which leads us to the 7D, a camera that appears to be intent on reclaiming its position as king of the APS-C crown. Although at first sight it appears to be quite similar to the EOS 50D – it is, after all, indisputably a member of the EOS family – a closer inspection reveals that this is not even remotely the kind of subtle update that we are accustomed to seeing in this price bracket. In point of fact, the 50D is not meant to be replaced by this model; rather, it is meant to serve as the 50D’s big brother.

The camera is constructed around a brand new sensor that has a resolution of 18 megapixels, but the viewfinder is likely to be the first thing that catches your attention before you ever attempt to take a picture with it. The finder in the EOS 50D has a magnification of 0.95X and covers 95 percent of the frame; the finder in the D300S has a magnification of 1.0X and covers 100 percent of the frame. This provides a substantial improvement over the finder in the EOS 50D. (Its 0.94X finder ends up essentially the same size, once the focal length multiplier effect of its fractionally larger sensor is taken into account).

However, the 7D is not simply a 50D with a new sensor, viewfinder, and revised body; it also features a new autofocus system with a dedicated processor, dual Digic 4 processors, and a new shutter mechanism that enables continuous shooting at 8 frames per second. Additionally, the 7D has the ability to control groups of external flashguns using its built-in flash. These are some of the most notable changes. However, the upgrades include a wide variety of fixes, improvements, and enhancements in addition to these major feature modifications that have been implemented. Make no mistake about it, Canon wants to regain its position as the company of choice.

8.2Expert Score
Great

It is difficult to find fault with Canon’s new APS-C flagship camera if you are able to rationalize the price tag. The EOS 7D is everything a semi-pro model should be, with class-leading image quality, rapid operation, and good handling; moreover, the outstanding movie mode will be a nice bonus for those who want their photos to move. It is widely considered to be the greatest APS-C SLR currently available on the market.
