Canon today unveils the EOS 7D digital SLR camera
Canon today officially announced the much-rumored EOS 7D digital SLR. The new camera features 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, dual DIGIC 4 processors, 8fps incessant shooting and full HD video recording. Zone focus lets you select one of five clusters of AF points in different areas of the screen, helpful for shooting off-center subjects. Manual opening and shutter speed control are available along with program AE mode when shooting video, though continuous focus is still not available. The camera's ISO setting can also be controlled in video mode. And unlike the 5D Mark II, in-camera clip trimming is available. The camera features a new 3-inch Clear vision II LCD screen with 920k resolution. The ISO variety obtainable by the camera is 100-6,400, which is expandable to 12,800.
