The 20.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor delivers high-resolution, detailed imagery with minimal noise. With an ISO ranging from 100 to 16000 expandable to 25600 and 51200, you’ll be able to take on any lighting conditions. Whether you’re capturing beautiful portraits or sweeping landscapes, the Canon 7D Mark II is your tool to help you create those professional shots.
Even in low light, you’ll be able to achieve enhanced colour and smoother tonal gradations with the power of the dual DIGIC 6 image processors. Unwanted optical aberrations will be eliminated, along with ghosting and flaring to ensure clear and professional photography.
The Movie Servo AF II system in the Canon 7D Mark II ensures fast speed response, perfect for capturing those action shots. Continuous shooting of 10 frames per second for more than 1,000 shots in JPG or 31 in RAW ensures you won’t miss a beat to capture that perfect shot. With a top shutter speed of 1/8000 seconds and a top flash sync speed of 1/250 seconds, this system is exceptionally quick. The start-up time of just 0.1 second keeps the camera ready to perform instantly, even when you have only a split second to play with.
The 65-point all cross-type autofocus system ensures wide frame coverage so you can focus on even the smallest details. The autofocus is quick and accurate so you will always capture the moment you’re after, in both movie and photography modes.
The dual pixel CMOS AF refines live view focusing that works to provide incredibly quick and precise autofocusing abilities. This system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of phase-detection gathering elements across nearly 80% of the frame to help reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement.
Hardy and durable, this Canon 7D Mark II camera can take on just about any weather condition. Dust and moisture resistant, its rugged design is perfect for the outdoors and can take on the elements. The body is constructed with magnesium to make it lightweight and easy to carry around with you anywhere you go.
The dual memory card slot accepts one CompactFlash (CF) card and one SD/SDHC/SDXC card to extend file saving capabilities. You’ll be able to swap out cards to permit overflow recording so you can keep going. It also allows for in-camera duplicating if you want to keep backups.
With built-in GPS, you can easily keep track of where you took your shots. The GPS receiver automatically records location data with each exposure for easy location tagging. All the details including longitude and latitude, elevation and UTC time is saved as EXIF data. If that isn’t enough, it also provides a digital compass for when you’re out in the wilderness.
The Canon 7D Mark II is compatible with an ever-expanding collection of EF and EF-S lenses plus a host of EOS accessories. Made for the professional photographer, Canon allows you to get creative and ambitious with your shooting.
