An already very capable imaging machine, the EOS 7D Mark II DSLR Camera
Body with W-E1 Wi-Fi Adapter from Canon takes the camera's capabilities
up a notch with the inclusion of an SD-card-sized item that adds Wi-Fi
connectivity to the camera.
Designed with a penchant for speed, the 7D Mark II is characterized by
its APS-C-sized 20.2MP CMOS sensor, dual DIGIC 6 image processors, and a
top continuous shooting rate of 10 fps. Both a 65-point all cross-type
phase-detection AF system and Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology benefit
fast, accurate focusing performance for both optical viewfinder and live
view shooting. Additionally, the combination of the dual image
processors along with the CMOS sensor also contribute to enhanced
low-light sensitivity to a native ISO 16000, which is further expandable
to ISO 51200. The 7D Mark II comfortably performs in a range of
challenging situations, and while ideally situated as a tool for sports
and wildlife photographers, it resides equally as well in the hands of
contemporary multimedia image-makers.
Complementing the 7D Mark II's still imaging assets, support for
recording full HD 1080p video is available, in multiple frame rates up
to 60 fps. Beyond saving to internal memory cards, uncompressed video
can also be recorded to optional external recorders via an HDMI
connection. Custom Movie Servo AF, which is aided by the Dual Pixel CMOS
AF system, serves to highlight movie recording abilities by enabling
controllable speed and sensitivity settings for continuous focusing with
Housing the robust set of imaging capabilities is an equally robust dust
and weather-sealed magnesium alloy body, which contains a durable
shutter mechanism tested for up to 200,000 actuations. A fixed 3.0"
1.04m-dot Clear View II LCD screen is incorporated into the design,
along with a bright Intelligent Viewfinder II optical finder, for
versatile monitoring and playback abilities. Customizable buttons are
placed about the body for personalized control over different settings
and a built-in GPS module automatically embeds location data into files
for geotagging images when shooting.
