Bob Nicolas and Ian Cruz shot a short documentary / film entitled "Perya" entirely with the new Canon EOS 7D camera. The Canon 7D Test Team who worked on the video is composed of Bob Nicolas, Bong Sare, Cj Lagman, Ian Cruz, Marvi de Guzman, and Jason Magbanua.
The Canon EOS 7D has a lot of brand new features designed to enhance every facet of the photographic process - from still images to video, the new EOS 7D represents a whole new class of camera made to be the tool of choice for serious photographers and semi-professionals.
It features an all-new 18.0 Megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor and Dual DIGIC 4 Image Processors, capturing tremendous images at up to ISO 12800 and speeds of up to 8 fps. The EOS 7D has a new all cross-type 19-point AF system with improved AI Servo II AF subject tracking and user-selectable AF area selection modes for sharp focus no matter the situation.
The EOS 7D's Intelligent Viewfinder, an entirely newly-designed technology, provides approximately 100% coverage and displays user-selected AF modes as well as a spot metering circle and on demand grid lines. New iFCL Metering with 63-zone dual-layer metering system uses both focus and color information to provide accurate exposure even in difficult lighting. The EOS 7D also captures Full HD video at 30p (29.97 fps), 24p (23.976 fps) and 25p with an array of manual controls, including manual exposure during movie shooting and ISO speed selection. The EOS 7D features a magnesium alloy body that is dust- and weather-resistant and shutter durability of up to 150,000 cycles. Compatible with over 60 EF and EF-S lenses as well as with EOS System accessories, the creative opportunities - not just with stills but also with video - are beyond amazement. (Canon USA)
