First, it should be noted that I work in "film". This review is based on those wishing to shoot video.

I purchased the Canon EOS 7d for use as my primary camera within my production company. I previously used camcorders like the Canon XL2, but needed to upgrade to high definition. Rather than go with another camcorder like the Canon XL H1, which requires tape or an external hard drive, and costs significantly more than the 7d, I decided to jump on the "dslr train".

I cannot say there is much I dislike about this camera, perhaps only that it requires a dslr rig, (fig rig or something similar), to keep it steady for video applications. However, this is to be expected considering that it is first and foremost a photography camera, and as such cannot be argued as a flaw.

Now for what I love about this camera. Interchangeable lenses are a huge plus. I ordered it with the Canon 18-135mm IS lens, then purchased a Tokina AT X 116 Pro DX 11-16mm F/2.8 EF lens, and Canon 50mm F/1.4 EF lens. There are more expensive options out there, but this kit has served me well for video.

The frame rate options are also critical. 1920x1080 HD at 24p (23.976 fps), 1920x1080 HD at 30p (29.97 fps), 1280x720 HD at 60 (59.94 fps), and 640x480 SD at 60 (59.94 fps). There is also a PAL option. (25 fps, 30 fps, 50 fps)

The 7D records video as MOV files using AVC H.264 compression. This helps avoid the image quality loss suffered by AVCHD cameras when recording significant amounts of change in content between frames. Canon recommends using a CompactFlash card with at least 8MB/s of read/write speed to capture movies. I purchased 16 GB SanDisk Extreme 60MB/s UDMA cards. At around one hundred dollars a piece, they were pricey but worth it for video capture reliability.

There are certain things that you need to consider when purchasing a camera like the 7d for video. Unlike camcorders like the XL2, the 7d lenses do not have built in Neutral Density filters. (A must for Depth Of Field) You will need to purchase ND filters, UV filters, CP filters, FL filters, etc.

The 7d also has a recording limit of twelve continuous minutes per video. (Twenty four minutes in VGA SD) This is not a problem for me considering I would never have a shot that goes as long as twelve minutes without cutting. However, if you were considering this camera for event shooting, concerts, etc, you would probably want to go with a camcorder for longer record times.

Audio is another thing to consider. The 7d's on board mic and audio recording options are limited as of now. To get professional audio, you need to purchase an external microphone and field recorder. This doesn't need to be as expensive as it sounds. You can get a more than decent shotgun mic and field recorder for under five hundred dollars. The 7d does have a mic input, but control over the audio being recorded is limited. I use the internal mic for audio syncing purposes only.

All in all, the Canon EOS 7d is an amazing piece of equipment. With full manual control, custom lenses, and outstanding video quality, the 7d is by far the best camera I have used to date. It's well built, reliable, and produces amazing results.

I hope this review was helpful. There is, quite frankly, way more information about this camera that may be useful to you. Sensor size, firmware information, etc. Remember that thorough research is always the best way to go.

Thanks,
Austin

This camera is the most amazing thing I have ever had my hands on. As long as you are willing to put a little time in learning what this camera can do you cannot be let down. Focusing seems far superior to even the 5d MkII. The fully auto allows my wife with no photography experience to take near professional pictures of anything from landscapes, macro flower shots or running kids. As a rule I tell everyone to stay away from any kind of kit lens, but this 18-135mm has really surprised me. It is a very nice walk around lens, I am pleasantly surprised with the build quality and I am much more likely to pull a $300 lens out at the beach than a $1500 one to shoot the kids. I like the fact that the body is weather sealed and the feel of this camera is VERY professional. Nothing like the rebel stuff canon also puts out. I rate this Camera A+++

The only pair for comparison - Nikon d5100 has the advantages, e.g. possibility to use two memory cards simultaneously, the rotary display. But speed of shooting 8 fps for Canon 7D pays back all. Still advantage - excellent video, though it is not the main thing for a PHOTOcamera.

very disappointing

I recently bought a Canon 7D and boy was I excited. I was attracted to the camera because of the bright view finder, the aesthetics and the feel of the camera. I was aware of the upgraded firmware and I was impressed to know that Canon would do that for one of their older models to extend the life and improve funtionality of the camera for their customers. Just the look and feel of the camera had me all wired and excited.
My excitement was however quickly converted to disappointment when I started using the camera. I was never impressed with the quality of the images. They were mostly blurry and even those that seem to be in focus, when I try to magnify them I realized they were terribly out of focus. At that point I thought the problem was me and I set out on an internet tour to find ways to improve my photograpgy. I found a few techniques and applied them but it did not make much of a difference. I then convinced myself that I needed better lens and got them. It did not make a difference either. Then I started comparing the quality of images of my older less expensive camera with the Canon 7D. I was blown away. I also thought that the Canon 7D was under-pixelated, but I was able to get sharp crisp images from my older camera that was 6 mega-pixels and was able to magnigfy them all the way and still maintain integrity of the file structure without the image falling apart. I realized then that there was something wrong. I take pictures with my iphone and analyze them on my computer the same way as the canon 7D. Again the pictures from my iphone was much better than my canon 7D. Comparing the images of the canon 7D with the Sony Nex-7 leaves the canon 7D lacking even though the Sony nex-7 was a much cheaper camera.
After I have done all that I could have done with no discernable improvements, I started researching problems with Canon 7D. The expert describes this problem as "soft images" and describe the problem that I have been experiencing in more professional terms. As it turns out I was NOT the only one with this problem. I have also learned that this problem plagues several lines of Canon camera. One expert describes it as a defect in the intrinsic file structure. Others point to intrinsic focusing issues. One expert claims that he moved from a 5% unusuable images to a 90% unusuable images when he switch to the canon 7D. There was a general consensus that you get an unacceptable amount of unusuable images with the canon 7D.
I also learn that this problem has been going on since 2008. There are many, very disappointed canon users out there. This is compounded by the fact that Canon does not publicly admit to this problem. They have accepted return on the camera but has either returned it back to the customer with the same problem or switch it out for another with the same problem. If they were able to fix any of these problems, I was either unable to find anyone on the internet who claimed that they had the problem resolved or no one bother to blog about it. However, there were also folks that had the same problems in the Canon Mark II. Some report that the autofocus problem has much improved in tha new Canon mark III while others still complain that the image is still soft.
Here is an online petition that brings many of these problem into focus: http://www.ipetitions.com/peti​tion/canon7dautofocus/signatur​es/page/7

You can read and decide for yourself
I returned mine to the seller.

I bought this camera kit for about one months and used it for 3 times shooting birds, flowers, and once in a wedding ceremony. Every time gave me a great satisfaction. I bought a Tamron 70-300mm telephoto zoom lens and it is a real good match with the Canon 7D. The features of 7D are more than enough for a layman and need much time to get familiar with them. But all buttons and switches are designed user-friendly. The only con is the body weight seems to be a little bit heavier. You will feel quite tired if you keep using it for a whole day. Anyway, I am sure the Canon 7D would give me much more fun in the future.
