A Review of the Canon EOS R7 Mirrorless Camera

The Canon 7D and 7D Mark II were two of the most popular cameras of the DLSR era, giving photographers the chance to use a lot of the technology in Canon's upper-level full frame bodies at a significantly lower price. The EOS R7 continues that tradition into the mirrorless space, and it brings with it a nice range of improvements and new features. This great video review takes a look at the camera and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Ted Forbes of The Art of Photography, this excellent video takes a first look at the new Canon EOS R7 mirrorless camera. The EOS R7 is Canon's flagship APS-C camera, and as such, it comes with an impressive spec sheet:

  • 32.5-megapixel APS-C sensor
  • Native ISO range of 100-25,600 (expandable to 51,200)
  • Continuous burst rate of up to 15 fps with mechanical shutter
  • Continuous burst rate of up to 30 fps with electronic shutter
  • People, animal, and vehicle autofocus
  • 4K video at 60 fps using 7K oversampling for improved image quality
  • 1080p video at up to 120 fps
  • 5-axis in-body image stabilization with up to 7 stops of compensation
  • Dual UHS-II card slots
  • 2.36-million-dot OLED EVF
  • 3-inch, 1.62-million-dot Vari-Angle touchscreen

I am a little surprised that Ted Forbes made a review video about this body.

I have always thought of Ted as primarily a fine art / people / street photography guy, not a sports action and wildlife guy. And the strengths of the R7 tend towards wildlife and action, more than fine art, portraiture, and street photography. So it just seems unusual to me that Ted would review a camera that doesn't seem to be geared toward the specific genres that he specializes in.

But I do love Ted and his great content, so I will watch his review anyway, even though it seems to stray a bit from his usual realm.
