The Canon EOS 7D Mark II Camera

The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is their flagship APS-C and update to the very popular Canon EOS 7D. Key features include:

20.2MP APS-C Sensor with Dual DIGIC 6 Processors. There’s a modest resolution increase with the 7D Mark II over its predecessor, but speed and performance see a big improvement. Not only do the dual processors greatly improve ISO performance, but they also help pump out 10 fps continuous shooting.

65-Point All Cross-Type AF System. This top-of-the-line autofocus system gives sports and wildlife shooters something to be excited about. Its all-cross-type AF points ensure fast, accurate performance to capture your fast-moving subject, with a center dual-cross-type point that supports f/8 lenses and allows autofocus in lighting levels as low as -3EV (that’s -1EV better than both the 1DX & 5D III). Additionally, an improved 150,000-pixel RGB metering sensor brings the iTR focus tracking previously only found in the 1DX, making the 7D Mark II AF system the most advanced to date (Sept. 2014).

Dual Pixel CMOS AF. First seen in the 70D, the 7D II gets an improved version of the Dual Pixel CMOS AF with user-selectable Movie Servo AF Speed and Tracking Sensitivity options this time around. Overall autofocus speed and performance also see improvements when shooting in live-view mode. If you’re not familiar with the Dual Pixel AF system, it provides continuous phase-detection autofocusing while shooting stills and video in live-view mode.

HD Video. As the 7D before it, the Mark II is equally geared towards video recording. With this iteration you see 1080p Full HD recording in multiple frame rates up to 60p. As for recording options, there are three compressions (All-I, IPB, IPB-Lite) and two file formats (MOV and MP4) to choose from for in-camera capture. For more demanding quality, the camera can simultaneously output uncompressed 4:2:2 video via HDMI to an external recorder while recording internally to a memory card. Audio can be captured by the built-in mic or external mic via stereo input, and a dedicated headphone input allows real-time monitoring.

Pro-Level Build Quality. The durable magnesium alloy body features dust and moisture sealing for use in less-than-ideal conditions. The 3.0" 1.04m-dot rear LCD works great for image review and composition in live view, while the large optical viewfinder provides 100% coverage. Ergonomically speaking, the 7D II is quite similar to its brother the 5D III. However, the addition of a thumb switch around the multi-controller gives faster ability to switch its operation without menu diving. The pop-up flash offers both fill and off-camera Speedlite control, and a PC sync port allows the use of studio lighting. Dual CF and SDHC/XC memory card slots give users flexible file-management options, and the higher capacity LP-E6N battery is rated for 670 shots per charge (250 in live view).

Other Notable Features. Here’s just a few of the most notable. There’s a built-in intervalometer that gives users the ability to capture timelapses. An integrated GPS receiver automatically records location and time in the embedded EXIF data. A flicker detection system that warns video shooters of potential shutter-speed issues under difficult lighting. Real-time application of lens corrections when shooting video with supported lenses. USB 3.0 connection for fast downloads.

Roger's Take

I’ll make it simple and mostly sweet. It’s all about the autofocus. It’s not the most pixels, the best image quality, or being small enough to put in your hip pocket. It’s about nailing every shot you take.

It looks like the original 7D with just some minor button rearrangements and the obvious GPS plate in front of the flash mount. The image quality, especially at higher ISO, is a bit better. I’m not an expert on it, but shadow salvage seems better, too.

But when you start playing with the autofocus you’ll realize this isn’t your grandfather’s 7D. Some people claim to like the original 7D’s AF, but some people claim to like brussel sprouts. The 7DII had me doing "hey, y’all, look at this" autofocus tricks in two minutes. Do you use live-view focus? The 7DII hits live-view focus in a split second; nearly as fast as phase detection and waayyyy faster than the original. We put the 7D and 7D II side by side and autofocused from near to infinity in Live View. The 7D II had taken 8 shots before the 7D even locked on focus.

Don’t use live view? Well, the phase detection is a joy to use: completely accurate, the cool thumb button lets you jump points to anywhere you want in a split second, and the whole system is phenomenally customizable. Did I mention it’s accurate? I took a few hundred shots, and it just nailed everything. Still life in bad light? Nailed it. Moving rapidly? Nailed it. Sunlight, halogen light, fluorescent light? Nailed it.

Whether you want a second camera with crop to back up your big pro camera, or just want to use this amazingly accurate focus system to nail that shot of your kid’s only goal of the soccer season, this camera works. The improved shooting speed, huge shot buffer, and dual card slots don’t hurt anything either.
