The EOS 7D Mark II features a refined APS-C sized 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor with Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors for gorgeous imagery. It shoots up to 10 frames per second at ISOs ranging from 100–16000 (expandable to H1: 25600, H2: 51200), has a 65-point* all cross-type AF system and features Canon’s amazing Dual Pixel CMOS AF for brilliant Live-View AF. It has dual card slots for both CF and SD cards, USB 3.0 connectivity and even has built-in GPS** for easy location tagging, automatically.
Achieve Impressive AF During Video Capture.
Canon’s innovative Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables you to shoot video like a camcorder with smooth, fast, and accurate autofocus and lets you enjoy instant and precise autofocus even when shooting stills.
The EOS 7D Mark II features Canon’s revolutionary Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a milestone in AF speed and accuracy that unlocks the potential of Live View shooting. This advanced technology has truly changed what is possible with a DSLR camera.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF involves a sophisticated rethinking of the CMOS sensor. Traditionally, image sensors have one photodiode per pixel for recording, but the CMOS sensor on the EOS 7D Mark II has two photodiodes per pixel, 40 million in total, enabling each pixel on the sensor to both perform phase-difference detection autofocus and capture light. With phase-difference detection AF, autofocus is achieved quickly and easily on the camera. This unique AF system enables autofocus on approximately 80% of the image plane, vertically and horizontally, and helps ensure virtually no loss in image quality.
Just to recap, the new Canon 7D Mark II has a 20.2 Megapixel Dual Pixel CMOS AF enabling you to shoot video like a camcorder with smooth, fast, and accurate autofocus and for low noise at High ISO. A 65-point* all cross-type high-performance AF system. High speed continuous shooting up to 10.0 fps allows you to capture fast action. The Viewfinder II provides approximately 100% field of view, and now a built-in intervalometer for time lapse.
I get the feeling Canon isn't pushing towards video shooters as much as they are pushing it as a fast stills camera for sports photographers. But for video shooters who want to stick with Canon, one upgrade over other Canon DSLRs is the ability to now shoot 1080/60fps (sorry no 4K talk). The dual pixel auto focus in video mode should make it very easy to track subjects and maintain sharp focus, and hopefully this new sensor and dual Digic 6 processors will offer amazing low light capabilities.
