A quick Good Morning to Everybody,
OK, what’s up? Well, I'm up bright and early this morning and there - sitting in my email inbox is a note from Amazon asking me to pre-purchase Canon's new 7D [link]. I guess the rumors were all true yesterday. That's right, Canon just introduced their new 18 megapixel/video enabled Canon 7D.link right here. I just finished reading it word for word. The new big brother to the 50D sure looks like a winner to me!
One of the first things I like to look for are the noise levels at the higher ISOs. From DPreview's Image Gallery, the noise at ISO 3200 looked non-existent to my eyes. At ISO 12,800, it looks like ISO 3200 on my 50D. Yes, I did download the images for closer inspection. That puts the 7D in on par with my 5D MkII in the noise department.
I was also griping about losing one of my custom setting choices on the 50D. The 5D has three, the 50D has 2, but the 7D has three. I'll plan to do an entire post about that feature one day in the near future.
And, yes, the 7D has count them, 5 video settings. Anyway, I wanted to get the word out early today. This sounds like it’s going to cost me a few more dollars. I'll follow up with Technique Tuesday and the image post later today. See ya' later, -David
