I love my Canon 7D. I bought it as an upgrade to my old Canon 20D. I went from 8mp to 18mp stills and now I can shoot 1080p HD video. Pretty versatile camera! I looked at the 5D Mark iii but it was a lot more money and for what I’m doing I couldn’t justify the extra cost.
Canon announced a firmware update for the 7D that adds a lot of features and narrows the gap between the 7D and the 5D. Some of the highlights to me were manual audio adjustments while shooting video, higher burst rate for stills, and in-camera image processing to name a few.
The update isn’t out until August so there’s some waiting left to do. It’s good to see them continuing to support and improve existing products. Check out the full press release here.
