20.2 Megapixel CMOS Sensor:
The EOS 7D Mark II features a 20.2 Megapixel APS-C size (22.4 x 15.0mm)
CMOS sensor with a 3:2 aspect ratio that captures a high level of resolution so it's easy to crop images
for enlargement without concern of losing detail. A major factor in reducing
noise, the CMOS sensor assures that images shot at highest sensitivity will be
Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors:
The EOS 7D Mark II's image sensor is backed up by the new dual DIGIC
6 Image Processors for advanced image processing. The dual processors allow you
to capture up to 1090 JPEG, 31 RAW, and 19 RAW+JPEG shots in a single burst, so
you'll capture all of the action. Also, corrections for lens aberration,
illumination, and distortion can be corrected on-the-fly.
Sensor Cleaning: The Canon
EOS 7D Mark II digital SLR camera has a self-cleaning sensor unit attached to the image
sensor's front-layer (low-pass filter) to shake off dust automatically. The dust
delete data can also be appended to the image so that the dust spots remaining
can be erased automatically by the provided Digital Photo Professional software.
Note: Dust which could
not be removed by the automatic sensor cleaning can be removed manually with
Dual Media Slots: The EOS 7D Mark II features two memory
card slots: one for Type I CompactFlash Cards (including UDMA mode 7-compatible
cards), and the other for SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards (including UHS-I cards).
If the SD card slot is used for the W-E1 Wi-Fi Adapter, you must insert a
CompactFlash card into the camera for recording and storing photos and videos. There are several options for shooting with multiple cards:
- Standard: Images will be recorded to the selected card.
- Auto Switch: Images will be recorded to the selected card, but
automatically switched to the other card when the selected card becomes
- Record Separately: You can set the image-recording quality for
each card individually. This allows you to shoot Large JPEG images to the SD
card and RAW images to the CompactFlash simultaneously.
- Record to Multiple: Each image is recorded to both the CF and SD
cards simultaneously at the same image size.
Note: No recording media is supplied with the camera.
Built-in GPS: The camera has built-in GPS that can record
longitude, latitude, direction, and altitude data and imbed it within the image
and movie files. It can also track movement at set intervals with its logging
function, and can set the camera's internal clock. When playing back images and
movies on a computer, you can track your movements on a map and see where and
when you took each image.
Still Image Recording Formats: The EOS 7D Mark II records
still images in the following formats:
- JPEG: The camera can record 3:2 aspect ratio still
images in JPEG format. You can choose from the following resolutions: Large
(20MP: 5472 x 3648), Medium (8.9MP: 3648 x 2432), Small 1 (5MP: 2736 x 1824),
Small 2 (2.5MP: 1920 x 1280), and Small 3 (0.3MP: 720 x 480). For Large,
Medium, and Small 1, you can set the compression to Fine or Normal Quality.
Small 2 and Small 3 are in Fine Quality.
- RAW Format: The
RAW file format records the image data as captured by the camera CMOS sensor
without further processing and converts it to digital data and records it onto
the card as is. You can choose
from the following RAW resolutions: RAW (5472 x 3648), mRAW (4104 x 2736), or sRAW (2736 x 1824).
RAW images can be processed and converted to JPEG images using the supplied
Digital Photo Professional software. Large RAW images can also be processed
in the camera.
Movie Recording Formats: The EOS 7D Mark II can also record movies in
MOV and MP4 formats. The camera supports Full HD 1920 x 1080 (60/30/24 fps), HD 1280 x 720 (60/30 fps), and
SD 640 x 480
(30 fps). There are three compression methods that you can choose from:
- All-I: Compresses one frame at a time for recording. File sizes
are generally larger, but the movie is more suited for editing.
- IPB Standard: Compresses multiple frames at a time efficiently
for recording. File sizes are smaller, allowing you to shoot more footage
with the same card.
- IPB Light: You can select this method when recording in MP4. The
bit rate is lower than IPB Standard resulting in smaller file sizes, and
compatibility with a larger range of playback systems. Allows the longest
possible movie shooting times on cards of a given capacity.
Drive Modes: The Canon EOS 7D Mark II offers the following Drive (Shutter) modes.
- Single Shooting: When
you press the shutter button completely, one shot will be taken.
- Continuous Shooting: While you press the shutter
button completely, shots will be taken continuously. You can choose from two
- High-Speed: maximum approximately 10 shots per second
- Low-Speed: maximum approximately 3 shots per second
- Silent Shooting:
- Single: a single shot will be taken, but with a quieter sound
- Continuous: multiple shots will be taken, but quieter than
normal. Shooting speed approximately 4 shots per second.
- Self-Timer/Remote Control: The camera will
record an image 2 or 10 seconds after pressing the shutter button on the camera
or a compatible remote.
Note: The EOS 7D Mark II is compatible with Canon IR
wireless remote controls (RC-6, RC-5, or RC-1),
that allow you to shoot remotely up to
approximately 16.4 feet.
65-Point, All Cross-Type AF System: The EOS 7D Mark II
features a high precision auto focus system with 65 all cross-type AF points.
The AF points are spread over a wide area of the frame, resulting in faster auto
focusing no matter where the subject is. The number of available AF points
varies according to the lens used. The number of AF points and the AF area are
selectable as follows:
- AF Area:
- Single-point Spot AF (manual selection)
- Single-point AF (manual selection)
- AF point expansion (manual selection)
- AF point expansion (manual selection of surrounding points)
- Zone AF (manual selection of zone)
- Large Zone AF (manual selection of one of three zones)
- 65-point automatic selection AF
- AF Modes:
- One-Shot AF: suited for still subjects, the
camera focuses only once
- AI Servo AF: for
moving subjects when the focusing distance keeps changing. The subject will
be focused continuously while the shutter button is pressed halfway
- AI Focus AF: switches
from One-Shot AF to AI Servo AF automatically if the subject starts moving
AF Assist Lamp: The
camera's built-in flash will fire a series of flashes in a row to assist during
auto-focusing in low-light situations. This is called the AF-assist beam. It is
effective up to 13.1 ft.
Shooting Modes: The EOS 7D Mark II offers the following
- Scene Intelligent Auto: This is a fully automatic
shooting mode. The camera analyses the scene and sets the optimum settings
automatically. It also adjusts focus automatically by detecting whether the
subject is still or moving.
- Program AE (P): The camera automatically sets
the shutter speed and aperture value to suit the scene's brightness.
- Shutter-priority AE (Tv): You set the shutter speed and the
camera automatically sets the aperture value to suit the brightness of
the subject. A faster shutter speed freezes the action of a moving
subject, while a slower shutter speed can create a blurred effect, giving
the impression of motion.
- Aperture-priority AE (Av): You set the desired aperture
value and the camera sets the shutter speed automatically to suit the
subject brightness. A higher f/number (smaller aperture) will make more
of the foreground and background fall within acceptable focus. A lower
f/number (larger aperture) will make less of the foreground and background
fall within acceptable focus.
Exposure (M): You set both the shutter speed and aperture
value as desired. You can use the exposure level indicator in the
viewfinder or a commercially-available exposure meter to help you determine
the proper exposure.
- Bulb Exposures (B): When taking Bulb Exposures, the shutter stays
open as long as you hold down the shutter button completely, and closes when
you release the shutter button. This mode is for night scenes, fireworks,
astrophotography, and other subjects requiring long exposures. Using a
tripod is highly recommended. To assist you in making bulb exposures, you
can use the Bulb Timer so you won't need to hold down the shutter button.
You can also use a remote switch (RS-80N3), timer remote controller
(TC-80N3), or remote controller (RC-6) when making bulb exposures.
- Custom Modes (C1/C2/C3): You can register frequently used camera
settings in one of the three Custom Shooting Mode positions. You can store
your favorite shooting mode, menu functions, custom function settings, and
custom shooting modes.
Exposure Compensation: Exposure compensation is used
to alter the camera's standard exposure setting. You can make the image look
lighter (increased exposure) or darker (decreased exposure). The exposure
compensation amount can be set up to +/-5 stops in 1/3- or 1/2-stop increments.
The LCD monitor and viewfinder can only display +/-3.0 stops of exposure
Bracketing: With auto exposure
bracketing (AEB), the camera automatically changes the exposure level up to +/-3
stops in 1/3- or 1/2-stop increments for three successive shots.
AE Lock: AE lock enables you to lock the exposure at a different place from the point of
focus. After locking the exposure, you can recompose the shot while maintaining
the desired exposure level. This feature is useful for backlit and spotlighted
RGB+IR Metering Sensor:
The EOS 7D Mark II features a new iSA (Intelligent Subject Analysis)
metering system with a 150,000-pixel RGB+IF light sensor and 252 zones. You can select from the following metering modes:
- Evaluative Metering: The camera's standard metering mode suited for most subjects even under backlit conditions, after detecting the main subject's position, brightness,
background, front and back lighting conditions, etc, the camera sets the proper exposure
- Partial Metering: Effective when the background is much brighter than the subject
due to backlighting, etc, uses approximately 8%
of the frame at the center
- Spot Metering: For metering a specific part
of the subject, uses approximately 3.5%
of the frame at the center
- Center-weighted Average
Metering: Metering is weighted at the center and then averaged for
the entire scene
Note: In the Scene Intelligent Auto shooting mode,
Evaluative Metering is automatically set.
ISO Speed: The camera features an
Auto ISO setting which allows the camera to automatically set the ISO speed
from 100 to 6400 in Scene Intelligent Auto mode, or 100 to 16000 in P, Tv,
Av, or M modes. The camera's ISO speed can be manually set between 100 and 16000 in 1/3-stop increments to suit your shooting conditions.
Two extended ISO speeds are available: H1 (equivalent to ISO 25600) and H2
(equivalent to ISO 51200). You can also set ISO Speed ranges for Auto ISO and
Built-in Flash: The
Canon EOS 7D Mark II digital SLR camera features a built-in pop-up flash
with a Guide Number of 11/36.1 (ISO 100 in meters/feet). The camera
allows you to adjust the flash exposure compensation up to +/-3 stops in
1/3- or 1/2-stop increments.
External Flash: The camera's hot shoe is
compatible with Canon's EX-series Speedlites (90EX,
