The sequence below was shot at 8fps, so the ten frames represent about one and a quarter seconds of action. We used Continuous AF with 19-point AF and the EF 70-200mm f2.8L lens.
Now check out our verdict!
The following images were taken with a final production Canon EOS 7D, running firmware 1.0.9 and equipped with a Canon EF 24-105mm f4.0L IS lens.
The EOS 7D was set to Large Fine JPEG mode, Auto White Balance, Evaluative Metering, and the Standard Picture Style. High ISO NR and the Auto Lighting Optimizer were set to their default Standard settings. Image Stabilisation was enabled for all these handheld shots.
The individual exposure mode, file sizes, shutter speeds, aperture, ISO and lens focal length are listed for each image.
The crops are taken from the original files, reproduced at 100% and saved in Adobe Photoshop CS4 as JPEGs with the Very High quality preset, while the resized images were made in Photoshop CS4 and saved with the default High quality preset. The three crops are typically taken from far left, central and far right portions of each image.
