Canon EOS 7D

20 Reasons why Canon EOS 7D is better

than the average

1.Sizably more megapixels (photo)
19MPvs 17MP (the average)
vs 108MP (best: Panono Camera)
2.Sizably larger sensor
22.3 x 14.9mmvs 14.6 x 10.8mm (the average)
vs 81.2 x 25.4mm (best: Polaroid Snap)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
3.Measurably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
8fpsvs 7fps (the average)
vs 60fps (best: Nikon DL18-50)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
4.Clearly longer battery life
800shotsvs 516shots (the average)
vs 4400shots (best: Nikon D3x)
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
5.Faster video autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting movies
Yesvs No (89% don't have it)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper movies.
6.Has a 24p cinema mode
Yesvs No (76% don't have it)
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
7.Reasonably higher pixel density
471ppivs 360ppi (the average)
vs 544ppi (best: Sony A7)
8.Distinctly more battery power
1800mAhvs 1212mAh (the average)
vs 4360mAh (best: Samsung Galaxy NX Mirrorless)
9.Distinctly higher resolution
783x1,175pxvs 875x609px (the average)
vs 1,517x1,011px (best: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2K + Lumix G Vario 14-42mm/ F3.5-5.6 ASPH./ MEGA O.I.S)
10.A shade bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
11.Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
12.Weather sealed
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.
13.Is a system camera
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
14.Appreciably less shutter lag
0.045svs 16.330s (the average)
vs 0.00025s (best: Leica M Typ 240)
The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
15.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
16.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
17.A little more viewfinder coverage
100%vs 98% (the average)
vs 100% (best: Sony A7)
With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.
18.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
19.Noticeably less startup delay
0.1svs 34.8s (the average)
vs 0.01s (best: Nikon D70)
It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
20.Measurably more cross-type focus points
19vs 13 (the average)
vs 169 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
Cross-type focus points, in contrast to normal focus points, can detect both horizonal and vertical making them the most precise and reliable focus points to use.
