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. My publishing experience includes a wide variety of academic articles and a book, "The Practice of Uncertainty" (1999). The mission of my blog is to provide accounts of the natural environment, including photos, in order to raise awareness of its fragility and the impact of climate change. Climate change is the greatest challenge currently faced by humanity. I occasionally write about the impact of climate change using the principles of social scientific writing. To do this 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. Best wishes, -Steve
