Image Sizes (Movie)
1920 x 1080 (29.97, 25, 23.976 fps)
1280 x 720 (59.94, 50 fps)
640 x 480 (59.94, 50 fps)
60 frames in 720p would be nice for A/V
looking forward to see some demo shots

The sensor is still too small. For AP use you can't beat the full frame sensor like the 5D Mk2.

I don't see the point in them making so many models. Canon is starting to look a bit like Nikon on that regard. And, why did they give it a model number that surpasses the 5D...but not in quality/features? Weird

I wonder why they didn't just do the following:

Keep the Rebel line as still shot only to keep the price down (instead of offering a 1080 video mode that isn't usable)

Add video features to the 50D to make it the prosumer model(non-35mm sensor) with video features that include 30fps in 1080 mode

Leave the 5D MKII and up alone

Hopefully Canon isn't using the same business model that GM did.

simple-minded corporate "competitiveness". Nikon has a new one(whatever the last one was), Canon has to come out with one.
Isn't 13mp equal to film resolution?
As long as their is a consumer with money in their pockets there will always be a "new and improved" something to buy...and they will buy!
I wouldn't mind seeing that with a full frame sensor...for the same money as a 20d...insert laughing face here!

The 7D is one step below the 5D, it does not surpass the 5D. It has got lots of features that have been missing on previous canon non-1d series models. 8fps, dual digic 4, 100% viewfinder, 19 cross type af points, grid lines on demand without having to change focusing screen...

An ideal combination will probably be the 5D2 sensor with all the new features in the 7D...perhaps in the 5D mark III.

Please pardon my ignorance, but how do the dslr cameras do the movie mode? Is the mirror locked in the up position? I am assuming there is a mirror because in a previous life (in a prior century) I sold cameras, including slr models. If someone could describe this process in 25 words or less I would be grateful.

The mirror stays up and you shoot with live view on the LCD screen in the back.

Thanks Seismic, that was what I was assuming was the case. So, if it were possible to trigger the shutter for a still image while in video mode, the video would be interrupted long enough for the still image to be created. Oh well.

The price is $1,700. The specs look good.

It is not that bad. But I will stick to my EOS 5D Mark II camaras.

They are great!!

I don't know about the Canon but I couldn't do it with my Nikon D90. Video on a DSLR is defeating the purpose. I prefer to shoot video with a video camera and stills with a stills camera.

I can't believe they're trying to pack that many pixels onto a DX sensor. I thought the ideal pixel density for DX was 12mp.

This one looks to be driven by the marketing department. They've figured the D7 will be perfect for point and shooters still obsessed with the megapixel race.

I'll stick to the full frame D700 .

In the Canon 1 series its the other way round, 1D is the flagship, so it would have been more weird to call it 3D or 4D...

When shooting AV with a DSLR in manual mode, I assume if you take off with the camera set to a specific aperture, shutter speed and ISO, and the lighting changes (sun goes behind a cloud etc), the camera will not automatically compensate for this and hence your footage will get darker? Has that posed a problem for those using the 5DII for AV?

Cheers

David

PS. It seems the 5DII and 7D share the same manual control in the video mode ... ie. it's all manual or all automatic - no Av or Tv ...

Bump? Any thoughts on my question chaps?

I'm pleased to say I'm on the pre-order list for the 7D - it looks to be a truly remarkable machine!
