Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

Very fast; excellent photo quality; flexible autofocus system; big, bright viewfinder; streamlined interface; adds wireless flash control.
-
The 1.6x crop factor of the 7D's smaller sensor is also a potential advantage.
Where we still have some reservations is surrounding HD video capture functions.
The AF focusing system is a joy to use, and its image quality is superb.

What reviewers didn't like

Single card slot; some annoying small and hard-to-feel buttons; limited to three shots for bracketing; Live View focusing still slow.
-
That kit lens isn't the greatest and with 18 million pixels you can fill up your memory cards pretty quickly if you shoot continuously.
Although the 7D records 1920×1080 video at 30 fps (far better than the Nikon D300S’ 720p and 24 fps), focusing is still an issue; you have to work at it.
Unreliable white balance in artificial lighting conditions
