Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review (highly recommended, Photography Bay)

7d2_king

Photography Bay reviewed the Canon EOS 7D Mark II. Once more, a review confirms that the 7D2 is the state-of-the art APS-C DSLR.

From the conclusion:

The image quality improvements over the prior generation are better than expected. The AF system is state-of-the-art. The control and customization possible with this camera is more than you would expect for a $1800 asking price.

The spec sheet and feature highlights of the 7D Mark II can seem underwhelming at first glance. However, once you use this thing, you realize just how much is under the hood. I have to tip my hat to Canon for producing a solid, professional-grade camera at a very attractive price point.

As a sports and action camera, it is the best bang for your buck on the market. Nothing else comes close.

As an all-purpose DSLR, it is a strong offering that won’t slip up in just about any circumstance. Sure, there are cameras that offer more resolution or more video features; however, the 7D Mark II is very balanced from top to bottom.

Photography Bay give the EOS 7D Mark II a “highly recommended”. The review comes with sample pics, analysis of the highlight features, high ISO samples etc. Different lenses are tested and reviewed for their use on the 7D2.

Canon 7D Mk II and 5D Mk III Overview Tutorial: A Free Video Camera Manual- Tony Northrup

Canon 7D Mark II Shooter’s Report Part I: Comfortable handling, robust controls and great image quality – Imaging Resource

The camera body itself is sturdy and comfortable to use. By utilizing multi-function buttons, the camera allows quick access to an array of useful controls. The sensor delivers high-quality image files, and the autofocus sensor excels in many difficult shooting situations.

 

Canon EOS 7D Mark II Digital SLR Review – ephotozine

The Canon EOS 7D Mark II offers high-speed continuous shooting at 10fps, as well as an advanced high speed focus system that will be of benefit to those that want to shoot quick moving subjects, particularly sports, or wildlife.

Why I’m Shooting With A Canon 7D MK II – Scott Bourne/PhotoFocus

[If you shoot sports, birds and/or wildlife] you will eventually want to pay attention to the 7D MK II. I’ve only shot with mine a few times but it’s got great image quality, impressive low-light performance and the auto-focus is simply better than almost anything on the market save the 1DX.

Field Report: Canon EOS 7D Mark II – Gear Patrol

All in all, the EOS 7D Mark II is equal parts small step and giant leap. The small refinements like the built-in intervalometer, cable guard and dual card slots initially caught our eye — it felt like someone at Canon might have been listening when we shouted violently after yanking out our USB cable for the eighth time.

Then we really got some time with it. The one-two punch of its 10fps, fast-focusing still image prowess combined with a hugely intuitive autofocusing HD video system is impressive and proves once and for all why Canon is still on top when it comes to cameras.

 

Canon EOS 7D Mark II review – Trusted Reviews

The 7D MkII is a disappointingly conservative upgrade in some respects, but good AF and burst performance see it though.

 

Canon EOS 7D Mark II AF System Compared to the  EOS-1D X and  5D IIIThe Digital PIcture

The new EOS 7D Mark II delivers several significant improvements compared to the EOS-1D X and EOS 5D Mark III, including a wider coverage area, more cross-type AF points, better low-light sensitivity, and easier AF Area selection while looking through the viewfinder. But the EOS-1D X and EOS 5D Mark III still rise above the EOS 7D Mark II in terms of the number of high-precision dual cross-type as well as high-precision conventional cross-type AF points. The EOS-1D X and EOS 7D Mark II are superior to the EOS 5D Mark III in terms of lens drive speed with current and recently discontinued EF super-telephoto lenses. The EOS-1D X is superior to both the EOS 7D Mark II and the EOS 5D Mark III in terms of the range of some AI Servo performance parameters, and the ability to link spot metering to the active AF point.

The 600II/1.4X III TC performed superbly with the 7DII. Initial AF acquisition was fast and the tracking was accurate. Unlike previous camera bodies, the AF locks on with a bit of a thud and then does not let go
