Canon 7D Mark II

 

Canon introduces the long-awaited EOS 7D Mark II, a new high-end DSLR with APS-C sensor. It has a 20 megapixel CMOS sensor. Equipped with a 65-point autofocus module, the 7D Mark II is intended to be suitable for action shooting, underpinned by 10 frames per second continuous shooting rate as well as splash water and dust protection. Also new is the RGB+IR exposure meter with 150,000 pixel resolution.

Canon has taken five years to launch the Canon EOS 7D Mark II, a successor to the APS-C DSLR Canon EOS 7D. Contrary to what the model name might suggest, the new Mark II is more than just a facelift. The EOS 7D Mark II impresses on paper with a very high continuous shooting rate, which together with its sophisticated AF system makes it the ideal tool for sports and action photographers.

Each of the 65 autofocus points is a cross sensor, the central AF points support F2.8 fast lenses for particularly precise focusing, but also F8 lenses, which are created by combining a lens with a teleconverter, for example, are specially supported. The 7D Mark II can also focus in dark environments up to -3 EV. The 7D Mark II offers the same autofocus modes as the EOS-1D X to be ready for action shots. It achieves ten frames per second with a full resolution of 20 megapixels and holds out at this speed for 31 raw images, with JPEG the number of continuous images depends on the memory card. Two slots allow the use of CompactFlash cards as well as SD cards, UDMA7, SDHC and SDXC are supported. The shutter is designed for 200,000 releases. The 7D Mark II underlines its robustness with its magnesium housing and seals against splash water and dust.

New is the 150,000 pixel RGB+IR metering sensor, which also enables face recognition to support autofocus. By detecting infrared light, exposure metering and scene detection should be even more accurate. The Dual DIGIC 6 image processor is designed to process the images quickly, ISO sensitivity ranges from 100 to 16,000, with expansion even up to 51,200. The built-in flash allows wireless remote control of Canon flash units.

The optical pentaprism viewfinder covers 100 percent of the image field at a 1x magnification and is intended to provide a particularly bright viewfinder image. The 7.7 centimetre rear screen, which has a resolution of 1.04 million pixels, displays a live view image. Thanks to dual-pixel CMOS AF, the autofocus should still work quickly even then. The 7D Mark II records videos in maximum Full HD resolution at up to 60 frames per second, but also supports lower frame rates such as 50 fps. The uncompressed video signal with 8 bit 4:2:2 can be output for external recording via the HDMI output. A stereo microphone connection is also installed. New is the USB 3.0 port, which allows a particularly fast transfer of pictures and videos. Furthermore a GPS with compass is installed.

The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is equipped with one slot each for CF and SD/SDHC/SDXC cards. One battery charge is enough for about 670 photos.

Ergonomics and workmanship

The fact that the EOS 7D Mark II is aimed primarily at professional photographers and dedicated amateurs is already made clear by the camera’s unpacking: it weighs around 900 grams ready for operation (but without lens), making it anything but a lightweight and around 50 grams heavier than its predecessor. The new 7D Mark II is a little more chubby than this, and it grows by just under half a centimetre, especially at depth. In the hand, however, this Bolide then makes a surprisingly light-footed impression. This is due to an excellently shaped handle as well as the superbly crafted case, which can take even the hardest of grabs with stoic calm.

Looking through the viewfinder, the 7D Mark II also underscores its professional appeal. The viewfinder image covers 100 percent of the field of view at 1x magnification (0.63x relative to 35mm), and thanks to the elaborate pentaprism construction it is also very bright and clear. Semi-transparent LCD displays overlay the viewfinder image with a variety of displays if desired – this is almost EVF convenience in a classic SLR viewfinder. Compared to the impressive viewfinder system, the display looks a bit old-fashioned, even though it has a high resolution of 1,040,000 pixels at a 3-inch diagonal. Unfortunately, the display is permanently installed (which limits its use in Live View mode) and also not touch-sensitive, as is the case with the EOS 70D. So you have to navigate through the successful “Quick Control” monitor with a small joystick, instead of simply calling the desired option with a fingertip.

Apart from that, the EOS 7D Mark II is mainly operated via switches, controls and knobs – just like a classic DSLR. A lockable mode dial is enthroned on the left shoulder, the right shoulder is occupied as usual by a lavish status display. The EOS 7D Mark II does without a usual thumbwheel and instead features a large, Canon-typical speed dial. A new lever on the back of the camera makes it easier to select the various autofocus options (more on this in the Lens section), which is also easily accessible when looking through the viewfinder. The most important control elements can be locked with the lock switch; which ones can be set. The dipping button on the EOS 7D Mark II has moved into the hollow between the handle and the lens, as is standard with many other camera manufacturers. Thanks to the more than generous equipment with control elements, the EOS 7D Mark II rarely needs to go into the main menu. If you do, you’ll find it easy to find your way around. Canon has clearly sorted the menu commands into different tabs, which in turn are divided into sub-tabs – the camera avoids confusingly long lists so cleverly.

Virtually the entire left side of the camera is occupied by a lush connection terminal hidden under two tightly closing rubber flaps. According to Canon, the EOS 7D Mark II is even better sealed against dust and weather influences than its predecessor. This is also underlined by the massive flap on the right side of the camera, which conceals an SD/SDHC/SDXC and a CF card slot. Against this variety, the underside appears almost spartan, there is only a battery bay as well as a tripod thread that is correctly arranged in the optical axis.

Canon places the tripod thread correctly in the optical axis of the EOS 7D Mark II.

Equipment

You have to look for a long time in the equipment list of the EOS 7D Mark II to find one or the other gap. Even less experienced photographers are most likely to have reason to complain – the EOS 7D Mark II does not offer any freely selectable motif programs. But she doesn’t leave novices completely out in the rain, because she has a fully automatic system on board. This really takes away any decision, even whether the flash is triggered or not; with action subjects, the fully automatic switches automatically to the pursuit AF (AI Servo AF). Not only the casual photographer will be pleased that the EOS 7D Mark II is equipped with an HDR automatic and also offers the possibility of multiple exposure of a shot. On the other hand, the camera dispenses with an automatic panorama, as well as with lurid picture effects.

For ambitious photographers, the EOS 7D Mark II is a veritable cornucopia of features. For example, it allows the M mode in conjunction with the ISO auto mode, so that automatic exposure control is still possible with a fixed time/aperture combination. The EOS 7D Mark II also displays a 1D series exposure scale on the right side of the viewfinder. You can define the upper and lower limits for the ISO automatic, or you can specify a maximum shutter speed above which the camera increases the ISO sensitivity.

In the test, the Canon EOS 7D Mark II convinced with a rich equipment, high continuous shooting rate and a mature AF system. The image quality, however, does not generate much enthusiasm at higher ISO values.

Canon promises a continuous shooting rate of up to 10 frames per second (fps) for the EOS 7D Mark II, and for JPEG format shots it’s supposed to keep up the pace until the memory card is full. In the test, the camera didn’t quite live up to its promise, but still showed an impressive performance: The EOS 7D Mark II rattles off like a sewing machine and shoots 9.5 fps in JPEG and 9.6 fps in raw at the beginning. Despite a fast UDMA 7 CF card, the continuous shooting rate dropped to a still impressive 6.0 fps after 111 shots (or almost twelve seconds). When recording in raw format, however, the internal buffer was already full after 23 photos and it went on much more leisurely with 2.6 fps. In practice, the fast oscillating mirror, which darkens the viewfinder image only for the duration of a blink of an eye, was also convincing in action shots. Canon has equipped the EOS 7D Mark II with a special flicker reduction (can be switched off) for shooting under artificial light. It ensures that all photos in a series are uniformly exposed and given the same colour appearance – this innovation was also fully convincing in practice. On the way to becoming a real sports and action camera, only the autofocus has to keep up with the high frame rates – as it is ordered, can be found in the section Lens.

In case the ambient light is not sufficient, the EOS 7D Mark II has a flash on board. With a guide number of 12 it is quite potent for an integrated flashgun and makes an external flashgun unnecessary in many situations. If the ambient brightness is too low for the autofocus, the on-board flash assists with a flash salvo. Of course, the EOS 7D Mark II also features a system flash shoe if more performance is required. Canon’s flash system offers all the functions you could possibly imagine, such as pre-flashes to reduce red-eye, flash exposure correction or long-term synchronisation, even on the second curtain. The shortest possible flash sync time is 1/250 second.

The EOS 7D Mark II is very professional when it comes to video recording. It records either in AVCHD or MP4 in Full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels), the maximum frame rate is 50 (PAL) or 60 (NTSC) frames per second. Just like a full-grown video camera, the EOS 7D Mark II provides film recordings with an optional SMPTE time code, and the film sound can be monitored at any time via its headphone output. The camera itself only has a mono microphone, but an external stereo microphone can be connected to record stereo sound and the audio level can be controlled manually. With classic DSLRs, an Achilles heel is usually the autofocus during filming – due to the principle, the sharpness cannot be adjusted at all or only very slowly and uncertainly. Canon avoids this problem with special phase comparison sensors on the image sensor, which do their job well: The EOS 7D Mark II follows the focus a bit slowly but surely, annoying sharpness pumping is alien to it. If you want a faster autofocus response time for video recordings, you can configure the AF system accordingly – not many cameras currently offer this option!

In playback mode, the EOS 7D Mark II also scores with a wide range of functions. As a specialty, the camera allows two different shots to be displayed simultaneously for comparison. It is also possible to assign a rating between 1 and 5 to selected photos directly in the camera. Raw files can be developed directly in the camera and a variety of parameters can be set. For JPEG files, however, the editing options are limited. By the way, the EOS 7D Mark II is one of the few cameras in its class that is still equipped with a GPS module.

Lens

The EOS 7D Mark II with the Canon EF-S 15-85mm 3.5-5.6 IS USM lens, which covers a focal length range of 24 to 136 millimetres in terms of 35mm, ran up for our testing. The optical design consists of 17 lenses in 12 groups including ED and aspherical lenses. The outer shell doesn’t seem quite as elaborate; the lens tube is made of plastic, at least one that leaves a high-quality impression.

Especially interesting, however, are the possibilities that the AF system of the EOS 7D Mark II has to offer (not only) with the lens. Canon has basically implanted the AF technology of the top models 1D X and 5D Mark III into its latest APS-C sprout, refining it in some respects. First of all, its 65 cross sensors cover a larger area of the viewfinder image than the 61 AF sensors in full-frame cameras. In addition, the central double cross sensor works down to a minimum illumination according to LW -3. And so the EOS 7D Mark II had no problems to focus safely and quickly in the twilight of a Christmas party. Even under laboratory conditions, the camera made an acceptable impression, as it had been focused from infinity to a distance of two meters and triggered within about 0.3 seconds. However, the shutter release delay is significantly higher when the EOS 7D Mark II is operated in Live View mode, when it is about one second. Although this is a decent value for a classic DSLR and even a significant increase for Canon’s traditionally leisurely Live View AF, mirrorless system cameras are still at least three times faster today.

The AF module is really in its element when it comes to tracking the focus for fast continuous shooting, because Canon has equipped the autofocus with almost the same range of functions as the 1D X. First of all, the AF area can be set in seven different modes from spot AF to large zone AF and automatic AF field selection by the camera. In addition, the EOS 7D Mark II allows you to specify how sensitive the AF-C should react when a new object moves into the viewfinder, how long it should stay at the original target, and much more. In order not to confuse the multitude of setting options, six scenarios are already stored, each of which can be individually adapted. These specifications have proven to be very useful in practice; no matter whether it was a dancer or a dog storming towards the camera that had to be kept in focus – the EOS 7D Mark II has always mastered this with flying colours. This unique AF performance in the APS-C class is made possible by a special AF sensor that has a high resolution of 150,000 pixels and is also sensitive to infrared. For example, the system is able to recognize faces or keep objects in focus based on their color.

Picture quality

Canon equips the EOS 7D Mark II with a CMOS sensor that resolves around 21 megapixels at 1.6 times the crop factor. The individual sensor cells are thus relatively small for a DSLR, the pixel pitch is only 4.0 µm. In order to achieve an acceptable image quality with such a highly integrated image converter even at high ISO values, the image processor of the camera has a lot to do.

The EOS 7D Mark II only performs really well in terms of image noise and detail reproduction at low ISO levels. Even beyond ISO 200, the signal-to-noise ratio drops and falls unusually early at ISO 1.600 below the critical 35 dB mark. Correspondingly, the brightness noise increases, from ISO 3.200 it becomes visibly aggressive in the raw files. So noise reduction has a lot to do and reaches the limits of its capabilities at ISO 6.400 and above: At this sensitivity level, the images appear visibly soft and slightly blurred, and at ISO 12.800 the texture sharpness is alarmingly low. Likewise, the initially very high output dynamic beyond the ISO 200 continuously decreases, at ISO 6,400 the EOS 7D Mark II does not even differentiate 128 of 256 possible gradations per color or brightness channel anymore. ISO 6.400 is also the mark up to which the input dynamic remains high with around 10 f-stops, above which it drops by an entire EV value with each ISO level.

If you want to use the full resolution potential of the EOS 7D Mark II, you can only use the camera with a clear conscience up to ISO 1,600. The two next higher ISO levels are still OK if the images for print output are reduced accordingly. Especially for sports and action photographers, who often have to rely on very short shutter speeds, this is less pleasing. It hardly helps that the white balance of the EOS 7D Mark II works very precisely, especially since the internal image processing of the camera reproduces colors somewhat idiosyncratically, especially orange tones saturate them very strongly.

The EF-S 15-85mm 3.5-5.6 IS USM lens leaves a good impression in the test lab. Although it shows a visible barrel shape at the short end, for a 5.7x zoom this is fine. The edge darkening is also uncritical, which only becomes noticeable far towards the edges of the picture and remains small overall. Canon also has chromatic aberrations well under control, visible colour fringes on contrasting edges do not occur. The resolution of the EF-S 15-85mm does not arouse much enthusiasm: In the medium focal length range, it does not even resolve 40 line pairs per millimetre – many a compact camera can do more. At the beginning and at the end of the zoom range, the resolution is significantly higher – but only in the center of the image. Towards the edges of the image, the laboratory protocol shows a significant loss of resolution, especially at the long teleend.

Bottom line

The Canon EOS 7D Mark II has a lot to offer that is unique in its class. This includes its very high serial frame rate paired with a superb AF system that is hardly inferior to that of the 1D X sports car. The processing quality and robustness of the camera are also above class level. The scope of equipment is very high, but rather tailored to professionals and ambitious photographers, occasional shooters will miss freely selectable motif programs. Canon has solved the operation of the EOS 7D Mark II well, but a touch display could simplify it even further. When it comes to video recording, the camera excites with functions that until recently were reserved for professional camcorders. Despite all these very positive aspects, it is regrettable that the image quality of the EOS 7D Mark II is not quite up to date at higher ISO levels. It can only be recommended without hesitation up to ISO 1.600, up to ISO 6.400 it is just usable. But if you can live with it, you won’t find a half-format camera that is better suited for sports and action photography than the EOS 7D Mark II.

I am Peter Dench. Digital Photographer, born in London 1972, currently living in Deerfield, near Chicago. I have numerous photography expositions and also working in model photography. In this website, PhotoPoint, I usually review cameras provided by local dealers in Illinois and by the manufacturers. Sometimes I, Peter Dench, review lenses too, but only when I have a suitable camera for them. Please let me know in the comments if I can improve any of these articles.
