  • Canon 7D firmware version 2

    - Coming soon -

    Instead of making 7D MarkII, Canon has announced an upcoming firmware update, 7D Firmware Version 2, for the 18 Megapixel EOS 7D that includes a raft of new features to further enhance the capabilities of Canonís flagship APS-C format DSLR.

    < I tell you, looking at the list will make you so impress about 7D, with the new firmware >

    The new EOS 7D Firmware Version 2 update will enhance the camera with the following additional features:

    IMPROVED RAW MAXIMUM BURST
    In the EOS 7D the maximum burst of RAW file frames was 15 Ė with the firmware update this will be significantly increased so that the cameraís buffer will handle up to 26 RAW frames in a continuous burst.

    IN-CAMERA RAW CONVERSION
    The EOS 7D will allow for in-camera post-processing of images. RAW images can be edited in-camera and options can be changed before saving the finished file as a ready-to-print JPEG or for sending wirelessly. This function can be used with full resolution RAW files, but not with M-RAW or S-RAW files.

    The settings for in-camera RAW processing include White balance, Picture Style, High ISO speed noise reduction, Colour Space, and lens data corrections (Peripheral Illumination Correction, distortion correction and Chromatic Aberration Correction).

    IMAGE RATING CAPABILITIES
    Like other Canon EOS DSLRs, such as the EOS 60D, EOS-1D X and EOS 5D Mark III, the EOS 7D will be able to rate images from 1 to 5 stars in-camera for quicker and easier sorting of images within your workflow. The ratings can be used to sort images in applications such as Adobe Elements, Adobe Bridge and Apple Aperture. The ratings are XMP compliant and Canonís Digital Photo Professional software has been updated to reflect this.

    AUTO ISO MAXIMUM SETTING
    Within the EOS 7Dís shooting menu photographers will have the ability to set a maximum ISO speed for ISO Auto, within the ISO range of 400-6400, so that you can minimise the amount of noise in your images.

    MANUAL ADJUSTMENT FOR AUDIO RECORDING LEVELS
    During EOS Movie shooting you will be able to manually adjust the audio recording levels to one of 64 levels, whilst the sound volume during playback can be set to one of 11 levels. During movie recording noise from the aperture is reduced and the camera also has an automatic wind cut filter.

    JPEG RESIZING
    Within the cameraís image-recording menu with all JPEG images you will be able to resize the image (for image downsizing) and save it as a new image. Note that the aspect ratio cannot be changed.

    SUPPORT FOR THE GP-E2 GPS UNIT
    The GP-E2 unit arrived with the EOS 5D Mark III and this firmware update will enable the GPS unit to be used with the EOS 7D, via a cable connection, so that photographers can geo-tag images with latitude and longitude data in the EXIF fields.

    QUICK CONTROL DURING PLAYBACK
    With the Quick Control (Q) button pressed during image playback photographers will be able to select options for protect images, rotate images, rate images, resize images, highlight alert, AF point display and image jump.

    FILE NAME SETTING
    In the EOS 7Dís camera settings menu in user setting 1 the first four characters of the file name can be adjusted, whilst in user setting 2 the first three characters of the file name can be adjusted and the fourth will be set automatically according to the recording quality.

    TIME ZONE SETTING
    Within the EOS 7Dís camera settings menu you will be able to set the time zone, plus daylight saving time can also be set.

    FASTER SCROLLING OF MAGNIFIED IMAGES
    The screen scrolling speed will be faster for scrolling through images when they are enlarged. The ease of use is improved when using the camera to zoom in and check focus.

    The existing impressive specifications of the EOS 7D include up to 8fps shooting speed, high ISO sensitivity up to 12,800 for low light shooting, an iFCL metering system with a 63-zone Dual-layer Metering Sensor for superbly accurate exposures, plus outstanding in-camera Speedlite Transmitter flash technology.

                When I bring both cameras (7D ands 5D3) out to shoot a single event, one set of images stands out, and the other gets junked.

                  Why you say so?
                  Because of the ISO performance?

                        The question is... if you buy 2x 7D, heck make it 3x 7D, do you have anything better?

                        I guess if you need something 2x the price, you can't settle for the thing that's less if the result is obvious.

                          But I don't think the different is that huge~
                          Can you post up some sample side by side for us to understand more?

                            AFAIK the earlier batch 7D have soft images symptoms but it fixed in later batches
