Canon EOS-7D

I just took delivery of this–Canon’s top-of-the-line APS-C format camera.  Although the EOS-60D served me well over the past two years, it is not as effective at capturing action shots as the 7D.  The latter has much more in the way of autofocus options, including: 19 autofocus points (compared with 9 on the 60D), greater autofocus speed and points selection, and lens calibration. The 7D also has a burst rate of 8.3 compared with 5.3 on the 60D. Other key features include a weather and dust resistant magnesium body, and CF disk for recording images.  Since the APS-C sensor is the same as the 60D, there will be little or no difference in still image quality.

If you have been shooting with this model I would appreciate hearing about your experience.

I'm a retired medical sociologist from the University of Rochester. Climate change is one of the two great challenges facing humanity (the other is nuclear weapons). In writing about the impact of climate change I read reputable books and articles on the topic. So when I make statements about climate change you will see a link taking you to the scientific source(s) of the information I provide. As for my independently published photobooks, each has gone through several layers of editing and peer review for both readability and accuracy. This is not to say that everything I say is accurate. Even the New York Times makes mistakes. So, if you find something that is factually incorrect, let me know. I hope you find reading my blog a positive experience. If you do, please encourage your family and friends to have a look. You can find photos from my other photo work by clicking on the My SmugMug Gallery tab, above. Best wishes, -Steve
