Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great camera, better-than-expected lens
Pros: a) This camera is FAR more solidly built than I had expected I initially thought it would be a simple "body upgrade" from a Canon Rebel T2i, but the build quality of the camera, along with the substantial weathersealing that this camera has, makes it a more balanced camera when dealing with enthusiast and pro-level lenses such as the Canon 24-70 2.8 L II USM. This solid build helps also when quickly grabbing the camera, or holding it tight and close to compose and gain the sharpest shot possible. This is in stark contrast to my T2i, which often felt a bit anorexic in the hand-grip area, and when dealing with heavier walkaround lenses such as the 24-105 F/4 L IS USM and the 24-70 2.8 mk2, That being said, I still wouldn't try to put an unsupported 300mm 2.8 IS II USM, or other "super telephoto" lens on this camera without some sort of tripod-based support that supports at the lens, rather than the 80D.

b) AF Performance: Going from even the 70D, (19 AF Points, all x-type) let alone my T2i (9 AF Pts, only center one x-type @ f/2.8), this camera is far more confident, hunts less for focus at night or in low-contrast scenes, and is extremely quick when a good lens is placed on it. Even the included 18-55 STM lens is no slouch, and is FAR quicker to autofocus than the IS lens that came with my T2i back in 2010. Because of the improved AF system, not only are shots easier to get, but they are sharper because of the abundance of cross-type sensors. Further improving this is that the camera now has a 7,560 pixel RGB AF metering sensor rather than the 63-zone IFCL sensor that could only measure in B&W, which helps for color gradation accuracy when the camera is autofocusing and composing the shot

c) High ISO Capability: I find myself happily shooting at up to ISO 3200 on a consistent basis, and even ISO 6400 is usable for smaller (read: 8x10 or less) photos. Canon finally began increasing dynamic color range in its cameras, and the 80D is the first APS-C beneficiary. The result is that ISO 5000 no longer is a noise-fest, and ISO 6400 is usable in lower-light. That isn't to say that APS-C is an ISO peer compared to a full-frame camera (ie: Canon 5D Mark 4), but going from the T2i to the 80D has given me at least 2 full stops of ISO coverage in low-light.

d) Video capability: It shoots 1080p / 30 with low compression, and 1080p / 60 in "YouTube Friendly" MP4 compression. I'm not much for video, so I view this as "a nice substitute for a dedicated camcorder." I'd still rather have a dedicated camcorder that isn't hindered by recording length limitations imposed by EU regulations though. But that being said, since it's there, and it works, it's a good thing. I'm mostly a photographer though. The tilty screen in this regard is amazingl. I have used it to playback video, and when I don't want it for photographing, I fold it away and now I don't have screen flare, and the screen is well-protected against the elements.

e) HUGE VIEWFINDER with 100% viewfinder coverage. This means no surprises in the picture, and the viewfinder is big and bright. This makes it easy to see what will be in the picture and compose it, while having enough room for notifications such as "level" (ie: no more lopsided pictures) and "flicker alerts" (the latter is to avoid taking pictures while lights may be flickering). I wish more mid-level Cameras had this, and that this feature wasn't relegated to full-frame and pro-level APS-C cameras.
Cons: a) My 24-70 doesn't always play nice with this camera. Some lenses may need calibration via AFMA (Autofocus Micro Adjustment) in order to do their best on this camera. That being said, I really have to pixel peep to make this condition happen, and most of it is because I don't hold the lens ideally to balance the weight and prevent "focus shift" due to my hand creeping.

b) Weight: THe same weight that gives it a professional-like feel, can be a bit offputting to someone used to cameraphones and point and shoots. All Digital SLRs have a substantial amount of mass to them, but that mass is good for countering heavy lenses, providing an assured feel, etc.,
Other Thoughts: If I was given the choice, I would buy this product in a heartbeat. I'm not a big 4K Person, so 4K doesn't bother me. I would have, though, liked to have the choice of ALL-I 1080p at 60fps for better mastering and color rendering in post-production. The 80D is capable of using SDXC cards that go up to 104MB/s, and since even ALL-I 1080p/30 only uses 90Mb/s (about 11MB/s), there would be no problem if larger, faster cards (64GB and larger UHS-1 Class 3 cards) would enable an ALL-I 60fps mode that would be 180Mb/s (about 22.5MB/s). This would improve the overall video quality of 1080p, provide a higher-quality master source for social media-based persons to make YouTube videos with (without spending $3k-plus for the 5D Mark 4), and with the advent of 30MB/s becoming a new minimum write speed for many high-performance cards (the SD Association recently released V30 as a new standard), 1080p / 60 ALL-I should become a reward for buying a high-speed, high-capacity card.

I wish Canon would update their 17-55 f/2.8 for a new generation of high-resolution APS-C sensored cameras (and included that with the kit instead). Other than that, this is a spectacular camera and the 18-55 kit lens is no slouch either. It's earned a spot on my old T2i as a backup lens, and is EXTREMELY sharp on it.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 awesome camera!
Pros: Just started getting into photography, while this is a good entry level camera I was taking pictures like something out of a magazine, literally people where asking me "what website I got the wallpaper from?" I tell them that's a photo I took lol.

The stock lens is decent but got to get up really close to take any good shots. I recommend the NIKKOR 18-300 lens for an all around lens. There are better lens out there but I got tired of getting close up so I choose a 18-300 lens.
Cons: Matte Red would been a Been a better color choice since gloss leaves prints behind but that's just me
Other Thoughts: For under $400 with the lens (when I purchased it) is a hell of a deal then some!

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 No regrets
Pros: awesome camera. pro features
Cons: not the best in low light scenarios with kit Lens, but it's not bad either.
Auto mode is a little slow to focus. I find I often miss shots or get bad ones because the autofocus is not that fast of lr focuses on the wrong thing. But thats on regular auto mode. I have not tried action mode yet
Other Thoughts: This is my first DSLR and I have learned a lot about photography in the few months I've had it. im glad I didn't opt for a cheaper beginner camera because I'm already starting to use the more professional features.

I would recommend this to anyone looking to get into photography you will not regret this purchase especially if you get it on sale

Categories > DSLR Cameras > Canon > Canon EOS 7D MARK II 9128B002 Black 20.2 MP Digital SLR Camera - Body

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Best Canon DSLR I have ever owned so far
Pros: Read the specs. Exactly as described. Fast shutter speed 10 fps; GPS, 65 point tracking AF points, Manual Selection if needed; Camera is a pure pleasure to operate. I owned a Canon Rebel T5 and this is 7D Mark II is my upgrade
Cons: None I can think of. But for those who are die hard critics - it does not come with builtin wifi , but is wifi capable with the eye card to offload your pics wirelessly if you so desire.
Other Thoughts: Best camera I have ever owned. Tons of features and scenarios to choose from. It was worth it. Throw in an "L" lens and your pics will be amazing. Check out the canon website for the online video tutorials and you will be a pro in minimal time.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Excellent camera. Sketchy seller.
Pros: The camera is a D750. It's an excellent camera. Google "D750 review" and you'll see.
Cons: The seller "Photo-4-Now" is selling a possible non-USA model camera.

Here is a copy of my correspondance with them: (please read all the way down)

Me:
Is the Nikon D750 with 24-120mm lens a US market version with full Nikon warranty and support? Or is it a grey market/import version with no warranty? Thanks!

Photo-4-Now:
Hello Walt,
We do not sell grey market products. We provide a 1 year limited warranty with all of our merchandise

Me:
Does that also mean that the camera has a warranty through Nikon?

Photo-4-Now:
The warranty will be through us. If any issues arise it would be sent to us
for service


They never answered my specific question regarding the camera being a USA model, covered by Nikon. Beware.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great Camera for Everybody
Pros: Easy to learn the many features of this camera and begin taking awesome photos.
Great photos right out of the box.
The two included lenses are top notch.
Cons: The only real issue is that this is a grey market product but as long as Photo4Now keeps their promise of a 1 year warranty through them, it shouldn't matter.
Other Thoughts: I contacted the seller and was treated well by Patrick. He shipped it out quick and even promised to throw in a free SD card (although when I got the camera, there was no SD card included). Broken promises aside, I would recommend this product and seller.
