18.0 Megapixel CMOS SensorThe Canon EOS 7D features an 18.0 megapixel CMOS sensor to capture and produce exceptional crisp and natural images with ISO up to 6400.
DIGIC 4 Image ProcessorCanon’s state-of-the-art DIGIC 4 image processor increases the speed and performance of the Canon EOS 7D, and enables other advanced features such as Face Detection, Servo AF, Face Detection Self-Timer and Intelligent Contrast Correction for greater flexibility.
3:2 Clear View LCD MonitorThe Canon EOS 7D has a wide 3.0-inch/3:2 aspect ratio Clear View LCD monitor which features 1.04 million dots, providing a bigger and better image/movie preview experience that ever.
HD Movie Recording and CroppingThe Canon EOS 7D can capture up to 1920 x 1080 Full HD video at frame rates of 24 (23.976), 25 or 30 (29.97) frames per second, for up to 4GB per clip. And SD-quality (640 x 480) movie can be cropped directly by the camera itself.
Enhanced 63-zone Dual-layer MeteringThe Canon EOS 7D features the newest 63-zone dual-layer sensor, delivers high level of accuracy by measuring not only the amount of light, but also taking into account color and luminosity.
PictBridge SupportPictBridge technology makes photograph printing easier than ever. Simply connect your Canon EOS 7D to any PictBridge-compatible printer, select your image and print settings, and press the Direct Print button to start printing.
(1) Automatic Sensor Cleaning Removes dust adhering to the low-pass filter. Self-cleaning executed automatically (taking 2 sec.) when power is turned on or off. Manual execution also possible (taking 6 sec.). Low-pass filter has a fluorine coating.
(2) Dust Delete Data appended to the captured image The coordinates of the dust adhering to the low-pass filter are detected by a test shot and appended to subsequent images. The dust coordinate data appended to the image is used by the provided software to automatically erase the dust spots.
(3) Manual cleaning of sensor
