The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is a camera which seems determined to be the king of APS-C crown. Though at the first glance many users may think it is the EOS 50D, which is unmistakably one of the proud members of the digital EOS family – however a closer look will reveal that this is far beyond a gentle refresh that people are used to seeing in this price range. And indeed, rather than just being a replacement, this camera is aimed to be the big brother of the popular Canon EOS 50D.
Impressive: Even Before Taking A Shot!
To begin with, the camera has a new 18 Mega Pixel sensor, however the first thing all the users will notice before they even fire a shot, is the wonderful new viewfinder.
The 100% coverage and 1.0X magnification indicate an apparent improvement over the 95%, 0.95X viewfinder in the earlier models. It puts this innovative new camera on the same ground as the D300S. So this camera is going to impress even the cruelest critique before he takes any photo!
Bear in mind, the EOS 7D Mark II is not just a replacement of EOS 50D with a new viewfinder, sensor and modified body – other significant changes include the new Auto Focus system with an upgraded processor, two Digic 4 processors and a unique shutter mechanism.
All these improvements would allow any photographer to shoot continuously at 8 frames per second, and enable him to control sets of external flash, using the built-in flash of this camera.
Moreover, the improvements stretch beyond these high-feature upgrades, which include several additions, tweaks and refinements. Make no mistake, Canon, once the King of the digital camera market, intends to be the default choice of the photographers again!
