Canon EOS 7D Mark II
Amazing? For starters the APS-C CMOS sensor on the 7D Mark II has been bumped up to contain 20.2MP of effective pixels compared to the 18.0MP of the 7D and the processors skip a generation to include dual DIGIC 6 image processors. These two processors give the 7D Mark II its impressive image quality and low light capability in video as well as stills, and also provide its very fast performance speed which includes continuous full resolution shooting up to 10 fps. The sensitivity range has also been expanded for minimized noise in low-light capture; it runs from ISO 100-16000 but can be expanded to an ISO 51200 equivalence.
The processors help the Mark II capture up 31 RAW, 19 RAW + JPEG, and over 1000 JPEG images in a single burst and it works to make real-time corrections of lens aberrations and distortion. Shutter lag is reduced to 55 milliseconds and refined mechanics improve shutter efficiency and dampen vibrations, which improves autofocus accuracy and overall image sharpness.
The focusing system takes a major leap to include 65 all cross-type AF points, up from 19 on the 7D, therefore enabling improved focusing precision, especially when tracking moving subjects. The AF points are spread over a wide area of the frame enabling faster AF wherever the subject lies, and -3 EV sensitivity at the center dual-cross type point allows for accurate AF in low light. When working in live view, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensor with phase-difference detection provides smooth camcorder-like autofocus, which is fast and precise for stills and video. The metering sensor has also been upgraded and now offers 150,000-pixel RGB+IR sensor. This sensor enables Canon’s intelligent Tracking and Recognition system (iTR AF) that detects and tracks subjects, automatically switching the AF point to optimize subject tracking. New tracking algorithms for face and color recognition also serve as a foundation point for the 7D Mark II’s AF system.
