Why Stock Photos?
The short answer is that we use stock photos on some listings to save us time and to save you money. The longer answer is that we love to take photos of each and every lens, camera, and accessory, but doing so takes a lot of time and makes it difficult to get everything listed. So, we decided to compromise: take gorgeous photos of some things and charge a little more for them, and use stock photos for other items and charge a little less for those, all else equal.
The items listed here were tested thoroughly by our trained technicians. If they observed any significant flaws, you’ll see them detailed above. If the items listed here are exceptionally awesome, you’ll see that noted above too. Regardless, please remember this is a used item and it’s bound to have at least a microscopic imperfection.
If you're interested in purchasing an item with specific photos and ratings, we don’t blame you one bit. Please visit one of our specific product listings (if available), usually marked with a serial number. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.
The Canon EOS 7D Camera
The Canon 7D is an APS-C (crop sensor) camera providing 18 megapixels shooting at 8 frames-per-second, making it an excellent sports and action camera. It has an enhanced all cross-type 19-point autofocus system claimed to provide more accurate AI Servo AF subject tracking, a 63-zone metering system that considers focus and color data when establishing exposure times, and is moisture sealed. It’s also the first Canon camera to have integrated wireless control of off-camera flashes.The camera’s movie mode allows manual control over shutter speed and aperture. It will shoot full HD Video at 1920×1080 resolution at 30p (29.97), 24p (23.976) or 25p, for up to 4GB per clip. Movies are saved as .mov files and can be directly viewed in Full HD with HDMI output. Note that HD movie recording requires fast CF cards
My take? This is different. The 30/40/50D were steady, progressive improvements. This is NOT a 60D; it’s a different camera with different capabilities compared to the 50D. It’s getting a bit long in the tooth, but still a very good camera, especially for sports and action shooting.
My 7D Autofocus relationship has become a love-hate relationship over the years, progressing to mostly hate as better AF systems have come out. One thing I would suggest for those shooting moving subjects and using Servo mode: try changing C.F. III-1 to minus 1 and C.F. III-3 to 1 in the custom menus. This seems to help keep the camera on-subject a bit better.
