JPEG burstshot – 7D mark2 + EF 16-35mm

Want to see how the EOS 7D Mark II 10fps burst rate sounds and how it looks thru the viewfinder? Here you are, thanks to Youtube user Daero Lee. The fast mirror movement is quite impressing when seen in the viewfinder.

Daero Lee’s first video showed the EOS 7D Mark II game-changing AF tracking through the viewfinder, at 10fps while shooting an amateur dance performance. A video that perfectly shows how advanced the 7D2’s autofocus is.

The last video below shows the 7D Mark II’s movie AF in Live View mode (Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology).

To learn more about the EOS 7D Mark II I recommend you read what pros say about the excellent weather sealing, the highly advanced AF, and the industry leading high ISO performance (have a look here too). To see all posts on the 7D Mark II click here.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review (Photography Blog)

EOS 7D Mark II Review
(Image courtesy Photography Blog)

Photography Blog posted their EOS 7D Mark II review. And it is another review that highlights the killer features of the 7D2: auto-focus, high ISO performance, speed.

From the conclusion:

The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is an excellent DSLR camera, with its APS-C sensor, cutting-edge auto-focusing system, fantastic viewfinder and outright speed making it a great fit for sports and wildlife, especially as it doesn’t cost the earth.

Featuring a near-identical control layout to the 5D Mark III, the EOS 7D Mark II makes the perfect partner to the 5D for the keen Canon shooter looking for an all-round kit. The new 65-point auto-focus system in particular is a big step forward, along with the excellent performance at higher ISOs, the fast 10fps continuous shooting, excellent metering system, impressive optical viewfinder with 100% coverage and a more refined movie making interface.

This is not the first review to point out how well the EOS 7D Mark II fits into a photography kit together with the EOS 5D Mark III. Having a very similar menu system and button layout, the EOS 7D Mark II complements with its full-frame sibling. It’s the extra reach (1.6 crop factor) and the advanced AF coming into play here.

Photography Blogs review comes with sample images, image quality analysis, and more. Be sure to check it out.

We had a lot of coverage of the EOS 7D Mark II here on Canon Watch. The EOS 7D Mark II is the industry leading DSLR in the APS-C world, the best possible APS-C camera for professional sport and action photographers, not to forget photojournalists. And it comes with the relatively affordable price of $1799 for the body only. You get the AF-system of the EOS-1D X, 10fps, and excellent high ISO. If you want to learn more about the 7D2 I recommend you read about the excellent weather sealing, the highly advanced AF, and the industry leading high ISO performance (have a look here too).

Photography Blog also posted a set of 26 sample images shot with the 7D2 (RAW format, original size).
