The Canon EOS 7D

The EOS 7D

The EOS 7D, introduced into the mid-range DSLR category, offers features never before incorporated in a Canon DSLR. The new APS-C sensor sized 7D utilizes an 18 megapixel Canon CMOS sensor and dual Digic 4 imaging processors to fuel its 14-bit A/D conversion and its ability to freeze motion in high res with 8-fps continuous shooting.

New to the 7D are a zone AF mode, a 19-point autofocus system, an iFCL metering system (intelligent focus, color, luminance) with a 63-zone dual-layer sensor, and a 1.0x magnification intelligent viewfinder with 100% coverage. Add to this full HD video recording at 1,920x1,080 resolution and manual exposure control, and Canon says the 7D "is poised as the ultimate step-up camera for serious photographers or a second camera for professionals in the field." It's also engineered to capture low-light images with or without a flash, thanks to a range of ISO speeds from 100-6400 (expandable to 12,800).

Its completely redesigned AF system includes a multi-axis cross-type 19-point AF grid, where the focusing points are spread out across the image plane and displayed through the viewfinder. All 19 points are f/5.6-sensitive for horizontal/vertical cross-type focusing, while the center AF point adds diagonal cross-type sensitivity for f/2.8 and larger aperture lenses.

According to specs, the 7D's AF system allows AF area selection modes never seen before in an EOS SLR, including: spot AF mode, which reduces the size of a single AF point to focus on small subjects, like an animal in a cage; AF point expansion mode, which uses a cluster of AF points adjacent to the selected AF point to automatically assist focusing on moving subjects, such as a running ballplayer; and zone AF, which divides the 19 AF points into five selectable zones to make it easier to achieve focus with subjects that are otherwise difficult to track, such as birds in flight.

Additionally, three video modes are provided: full HD, HD in a 16:9 aspect ratio and standard definition in a 4:3 aspect ratio, all at selectable frame rates of cinematic 24p, 25p or 30p. A dedicated button initiates live view for both video and still shooting; once engaged, the button starts and stops recording. Photographers can use an external stereo microphone for pro audio effects or the built-in monaural mic.

Rounding out its features are: a built-in dual axis electronic level with an artificial horizon on the 3.0-inch LCD in live view or in the viewfinder for leveling while shooting; a pop-up flash with an integrated Speedlite transmitter for control of off-camera Speedlites; a macro tracking function that helps reduce blur by recognizing when a macro lens is attached and automatically adjusting the AI servo sampling frequency; and a RAW/JPEG toggle button that provides dual-format shooting.

Photo Books

The hand made photo book is no longer an object for the celebrity photographer. The book is a aspiration as much as it is a collection of imagery. Today, many businesses offer the ability to generate a one-of-a-kind high quality photo book containing your imagery. Marketing the book may be a difficult endeavor, but creating an image book is far more tactile than a web-page and it offers the photographer a way of organizing their thoughts and ideas. A self published photo book also serves as an excellent portfolio. Many photographers practice different types of photography and a ready-to-go portfolio for each type of photographic subject might impress a new client. They are also popular and sleek as the wedding photographer's final product. Luminous Landscape has a relevent posting worth reading and is available by clicking here. Shutterfly has also introduced a system they call "Simple Path" that allows the photographer to generate a book online at a cost that also looks to balance with quality. That website is available by clicking: Shutterfly photo books.


Video Transfers


Camren offers video transfer services. We can transform 8mm or Super 8mm film into DVD or VHS formats. Titles and/or chapters can be added to the DVD format for organization at an additional fee.

This is a great way to share those movies with your family.

Video transfer prices start at $59.95 to transfer 200 feet of 8mm film onto a DVD. Additional footage is $0.12 per foot. DVD duplicates of an original DVD run $19.99 and $9.99 for each additional copy. For large quantity orders we will supply a quote.
