Hi all, After reading the many articles about the pro's and cons of the new 7D, I finally had the opportunity to test the camera myself. Here are some real life examples of the camera's HD capabilites. Shot with a variety of lenses, EF300 f2.8L IS, EF24-70 f2.8L, EF15 f2.8 Fisheye. The Dove shot was using the onboard mic, the remainder a $200.00 Rode VideoMic. Interesting to note in the aircraft video that the Rode is so sensitive that it picks up radar chirps. Video's post processed with Pinnacle Studio 14. Thanks for looking. CLICKY Martin.
