Here at Deutschland’southward fabled Photokina, Canon’s peak of the line prosumer APSC DSLR has been finally updated – whoo-hoo! It’s been a long and lonely five years and much has changed in the camera and video landscape merely what does that mean for a current 7D possessor? Well looking at the standard sealed torso of the camera I’d say nada at all but taking a wait under the hood you’ll find new processor muscle; say hi to the DIGIC 6, a whole army of video input and output features, and more cross-blazon hairs than a hedgehog’s back!
And then allow’s jump straight in and compare these two bad boys and their range of specs to see what’s new and what’due south stayed the aforementioned over the by half decade.

Then at a glance, yous might say only the following are stand out reasons for current 7D owners to upgrade: A larger back screen, loftier res ISO sensitivity, more rapid burn shots and an upped spec on the sensor pixels. But look within and you’ll encounter how the guts of this creature have been ripped out and replaced with a snazzy fully-featured photo-making engine.
The original Canon 7D featured dual DIGIC 4, 5 years later the 7D Mark II goes one better than all other Catechism EOS cameras with its DIGIC six processor.
The default ISO range is 100-16,000, expandable upward to 25,600 and 51,200 this takes it upward from the 7D’s native ISO of 6,400, and maximum extended ISO of 12,800
The 7D Mark Ii now shoots at 10fps which is pro photographic camera speed. There is now an boosted silent continuous outburst mode at 4fps. The 7D Mark II’s buffer chapters likewise gets a considerable heave and can now shoot 31 continuous shots in RAW mode and an incredible 1,090 shots in JPEG. The new 7D Mk 2 uses an RGB metering sensor with approximately 150,000-pixels. The new metering sensor is better than those found in the 5D Mark III, offering only 100,000 pixels. The Mark 2 has also has 65-bespeak all cross-type AF system, beating one time over again the 61-point, 41-cross-type system of the 5D Mark III.
