Canon EOS 7D with 18-85mm REVIEW:

Canon EOS 7D: Assured Performances which Lack Prudence

With 7D Canon effectively ceded the basic entry-level market long back and the latest EOS 7D now ventures into the high-end professional bracket.  While it has been taking the less expensive path for long, Canon’s budget friendly vigil finally takes a hiatus with this effective yet feature packed gadget. In comes the prudent metering system which is ably backed up by the eight-channel readout and the coupled sensor of arguably the best quality. We also found the dual Digic 4 processors which function perfectly as per 1080p video capturing mode. The autofocusing specs have also been accentuated in addition to the sturdier build and fantastic design cues.

One can consider this to be an advanced camera with high-end digital prowess which is actually meant for the serious photographers and even some of the semi-professionals. The 18MP unit makes a reappearance with the EOS 7D which is backed up by a near perfect sensor and the vibrant image processor. Both manual and automatic sensor cleaning options are being provided besides multiple aspect ratios for the users to feel great about. Take out thousands of pictures depending upon the prolonged battery life as the EOS 7D allows one to be flexible with the snapshots and videos.

Design and Interface

The camera weighs a mere 820g which can be considered as nominal as per the user preferences. While the dimensions are perfectly shaped on the manageable lines, the EOS 7D comes in as one device which is nonchalantly easy to carry along. The offered lens kit is 18-85 mm. While the price surges up drastically with this addition, better IS and AF-S qualities do justify the same this accentuated range. Based on the grip, the EOS 7D is surely one of the heaviest of the lot, which actually renders the perfect professional feel. Interface changes and conspicuous specs are included with ease, as this gadget quietly goes about the business in addition to the fantastic viewfinder. Being bright and big, the entire viewfinder emanates class which in fact enhances the overall fluidity of the system. With a 3 inch VGA screen at its disposal, the EOS 7D readily combats glare based on the popup flash. These accessories are well paired up with the zooming capabilities and the optical focusing system is something to feel good about. The EOS 7D also sports a Liquid-crystal display as per the latest technological norms with a resolution of 920k dots as the scale up factor. Be it the USB support or the dot pixels range, every single spec fits in with the VGA monitor whereas the EOS 7D also includes the performance oriented LP-E6 battery pack, facilitating multiple shots.

Controls and Ergonomics

The sculpted handgrip does come with the prominent thumb resting option with an ample floor area for lens mounting and shutter modifications. With the EOS 7D the entire feeling comes out to be on the nicer side with multiple controls at the disposal. Be it the AF-ON and point selections, one may access the needed specs as with the elusive mode dial, effectively setup as with the rotating wheel or the D-pad. Multi-controller is something which comes in as one regulatory option whereas the erase and playback switches are easily accessible as well. Picture Style Selection comes with the horizontal configuration which sits pretty on the vertical layout placed at the leftmost corner of the screen. Be it the normal shooting layers or the Live Viewing experience, the red tab indicates the camera attitude which is more in sync with the latest technology.  The quick control button is something which includes the menu buttons and morphs the live viewing experience in the most perfect manner as with the RAW-JPEG based functionality. Resort to the internal menus for seamlessly going about the professional requirements as with the dial lock and control tabs sitting at top.

Modes and Menus

There are many reasons as why customers are still looking to invest into this effective DSLR. Be it the manual or automatic modes, one may find controls for every single job as with multiple controls and menu accessibility. One may start off with the Full Auto feature which selects the image quality as per the scene requirements and single shot methodologies. Creative Auto is something to feel good about as it adds color options while compensating for the sharper backgrounds with ease. Program auto and aperture priority can be regulated with ease whereas the Shutter Bulb is something which renders added functionality. Movie captures have turned a page surely with the 1920x1080p capturing mode mostly at 30fps whereas the 640x480p offers 60fps for the users to indulge into.

Capture Quality and Attributes

The shutter speed can be modified accordingly and the lowest 1/8000 is something meant for the single shots. While the image quality is exhaustively detailed, higher ISO sensitivity renders better performances in low-light conditions. With better white balancing schemes and metering perks, the camera lives up to all the enumerated claims and works in an holistic manner. Burst shooting at 8 shots is a great addition but 1fps still remains to be a debatable figure. Both built-in and external flash requirements are effectively covered as with the color filtered lens which is dust resistant as well. The 19 cross point sensors allow the users to shoot perfectly even at high speed with a reduced burst rate and the snapshots come out as highly detailed ones. Action shots are best captured by the provided lens kit which steadily avoids the pincushion distortion alongside adding straighter lines into the mix. CMOS sensor perfects the video quality but one may not be able to use the AF feature throughout the process.


Here comes the EOS 7D acting as the biggest draw for the latest professional requirements. While the ISO sensitivities feel better than most contemporaries, we still think that Canon should have tweaked the interface a bit more so as to justify this exhilarating price tag.
