Canon 7D Mark 2 II Review Video In Hand Testing Shooting Photos And Video

Canon 7D Mark II test review
Testing the new Canon 7D Mark 2 out in the field. Sample photos and sample test video for you to look at.

Complete with specs, new features, why they matter, and a detailed look at image quality results, our head of testing gives the verdict on the long awaited 7D Mark II, which now sits at the top of Canon’s APS-C format DSLR range.

The sensor inside the 7D Mark II has 20.2 million effective pixels, just like the Canon 70D, but we are told it’s a new device and that the micro lenses have been redesigned for better light transmission. Canon has also given the camera two Digic 6 processing engines and this enables a maximum continuous shooting speed of 10 frames per second. With a UDMA 7 card like this Lexar 1066x CompactFlash card installed this rate can be maintained for up to 31 raw files or 1030 JPEGs.

You can get the Canon 7D Mark 2 cheap here and here.
