With 18 megapixels, this camera’s APS-C-sized sensor has an ISO range from 100 - 6400, and a high setting of 12,800. Canon claims they have shortened the distance between the photodiodes and the sensor, which has decreased light falloff by half. This translates into better ISO performance in low light conditions. Targeted at the semi-pro market, the EOS 7D features full HD video (1080p) at 24, 25 or 30 frames per second. Users can shoot at 60 FPS in 720p mode as well. Improvements over Canon’s EOS 5D Mark II include a more rugged and weatherproof body, a dedicated button for RAW+JPEG mode, a new multifunction button on the top right, plus a button for the custom controls menu. The Canon EOS 7D is due out by the end of October with a MSRP of $1,699.00.
