CanonUSA posted an informative, 7 minutes tutorial video about how to set up for a professional wedding shot. A Canon EOS 7D and different lenses (70-200mm, 24mm,35mm, 14mm etc) are used in the tutorial. The background music it at least weird, but the tutorial is cool and helpful in explaining a wedding shot setup and the how to of a successful shooting session.
The video above tells the story that happened to two photographers who wanted to set up a photo trap to capture a shot of a jaguar.
Things didn’t work out as expected. They were using a Canon EOS 7D, an off-camera flash, and an IR sensor. Everything seemed fine, the surprise came when they went back the day after. A horde of leaf cutter ants destroyed all the equipment. Incredible what this little pesky insects can do![via PetaPixel via The Jungle Diaries]
CanonUSA posted a series of tutorial videos about the Canon EOS 7D (Mark I). See them below. A bit late for EOS 7D tutorial videos, since we have the EOS 7D Mark II available since a while. However, most of what is discussed can well be applied to other Canon DSLRs.

Thanks Niklas. The Canon Direct Store has a pretty good deal on refurbished Canon EOS 7D. The EOS 7D bodies are on sale for just $599. It’s refurbished gear, but it is refurbished by Canon and it comes with 1 year warranty.
It’s always a good idea to have a look at the Canon Direct Store’s refurbished gear. You may spot some very good deals!
