Testing the Canon 7D with Nolan

I thought I’d share my test results on the new Canon 7D DSLR in the hopes of helping anyone considering the purchase.  It’s actually not brand new but the latest from Canon in that line-up.  Jummy(aka jblaze) was kind enough to leave hers with me for a couple of days. From my few findings, this is definitely a good one from Canon but I have only been able to test it up to ISO 800 though. In good light, it is fast and accurate even with the off center AF point which is what I shot all the images below. The new focusing system is just butter. Now the real challenge will be to do more testing in low light against my Mark III. I have heard a lot of mixed reviews in low light especially over ISO 1600 but I rarely go over 1600, so I may get one in the near future as a backup to my 5D II and Mark III or maybe get rid of the mark III…but cant be sure yet.

Of course my favorite subject was kind enough to pose for me and as you can see he had fun while he was at it. This is actually Nolan being himself right outside the house, a side you hardly see of him in public. All the shots below were shot in Jpeg and not RAW..pretty good stuff.



Below is a crop from a shot taken before the one above
