Canon EOS 7D Kit includes:
- 2x 16GB Compact flash cards
- Manfrotto 503/525 HVD Tripod
- Sigma DC 18-50mm 1:2.8 EX Zoom Lens
Made to be the tool of choice for serious photographers and semi-professionals, the EOS 7D features an all-new 18.0 Megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor and Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors, capturing tremendous images at up to ISO 12800 and speeds of up to 8 fps. The EOS 7D has a new all cross-type 19-point AF system with improved AI Servo AF subject tracking and user-selectable AF area selection modes for sharp focus no matter the situation. The EOS 7D's Intelligent Viewfinder, an entirely newly-designed technology, provides 100% coverage and displays user-selected AF modes as well as a spot metering circle and on demand grid lines. New iFCL Metering with 63-zone dual-layer metering system uses both focus and color information to provide accurate exposure even in difficult lighting. The EOS 7D also captures Full HD video at 30p (29.97 fps), 24p (23.976 fps) and 25p with an array of manual controls, including manual exposure during movie shooting and ISO speed selection. The EOS 7D features a magnesium alloy body that is dust- and weather-resistant and shutter durability of up to 150,000 cycles. Compatible with over 60 EF and EF-S lenses as well as with EOS System accessories, the creative opportunities - not just with stills but also with video - are beyond amazement.
The EOS 7D represents a quantum leap forward for the EOS system. It takes the best parts of the EOS 5D Mark II and mates them with the best of the EOS 50D and then adds in some features only previously seen on EOS-1 Series models. As if this is not enough, it also incorporates a series of 'firsts' never before seen in the EOS system. It sits just below the EOS 5D Mark II in the range offering full HD video functionality and an APS-C sensor.
Like the EOS 5D Mark II before it, the EOS 7D offers full HD movie shooting to allow photographers at all levels to experiment with the possibilities of shooting movies. It offers full manual control over the exposure as well, though auto movie exposure can still be used. Unlike the EOS 5D Mark II, the EOS 7D also offers the ability to change the frame rates at which movies are shot, offering 24, 25 and 30 frames per second.
18 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor
The EOS 7D offers superb resolution thanks to its 18MP CMOS sensor. Offering the photographer the choice of flexibility and creativity.
8 frames per second
Shoot 18MP 14-bit images at 8 fps as standard, in a burst of up to 126 large JPEGs; photographers can capture both detail and action.
For handheld shooting in low light, the EOS 7D offers ISO speeds of up to 6400. Expandable to ISO 12800, for low light scenes where using flash is undesirable.
100% Viewfinder coverage
The 100% coverage viewfinder with 1.0x magnification provides the most complete and natural view of your subject. The Intelligent viewfinder offers shooting information never before seen in an EOS, including the Dual Axis Electronic Level to ensure perfect horizons.
19-point cross-type AF system
A newly designed AF sensor with Zone and Spot AF modes gives the photographer new ways to select AF points. All points are cross type with the centre point offering both f/2.8 and f/5.6 sensors.
iFCL metering system
A new 63-zone dual layer metering sensor analyses Focus, Colour and Luminance information, providing accurate and consistent metering.
Canons Dual DIGIC 4 provides the EOS 7D with the power to deliver outstanding colour reproduction from its high resolution CMOS sensor. DIGIC 4 also delivers 14 bit processing, excellent noise reduction, long battery life, Face Detection AF and Full HD movie recording.
Full HD movie recording
Complementing outstanding still imaging capabilities with Full HD 1080 video recording including selectable frame rates and full manual control.
Integrated Speedlite Transmitter
EOS 7D includes the ability to control multiple Speedlites without an ST-E2 or 580EX II, and includes a built-in 15mm wide angle flash. Expand your flash photography.
3.0inch Clear View II LCD
The 3.0inch Clear View II LCD features 920,000 dot resolution, a wide viewing angle and new solid structure for improved image viewing in bright conditions. Live View displays real-time images on the LCD, offering three auto focus modes.
Magnesium alloy body with environmental protection
The magnesium alloy body offers weather sealing equivalent to the acclaimed EOS-1N, EOS Integrated Cleaning System and 150,000 release shutter durability. The EOS 7D has been designed from the ground up to be used by the most demanding photographers.
