Canon EOS 7D… So Far Not What I Expected…

First Impression, this article is not our final on the Canon OES 7D.

I just received the Canon EOS 7D with a 15-85mm lens yesterday … While photos so far are quite good, very good if you don’t go over ISO 1000, I’m disappointed with the Video Mode… Especially with the poor performance in 720/60p full of moiré (alising). Once switched to 1080/30p or 24p things get better but not much… Something pretty basic that the GH1 handled AMAZINGLY well…

We knew already that both the 7D and 5D MK II were pretty sensitive to the Jello effect, like the GF1 (the GH1 has no Jello effect at all), and we now have to add moiré to the list of bugs, sorry features, that Canon must address ASAP!




This said, it looks like a 7D Firmware update will come this month. Not sure about this but it’s a rumor spreading on the web and the firmware will address some issues while recording in 720p… SO wait and see but as for today (10/15/09) with 1.0.8 Firmware on the 7D… the EOS 7D is far from a GH1 in terms of video quality in both 1080 and 720p.

I’ll have the camera for a week more and will shoot this week-end’s “Let’s Visit Tokyo” video with it. Maybe I’ll change my opinion…
