Canon EOS 7D

The Canon 7D is a SLR camera, released in 2009. It has an 18MP APS-C CMOS sensor, dual Digic 4 processors and allows up to 8fps continuous shooting.

I shoot both still photos and video using this camera, with the 28-135mm f/3.5 standard zoom lens (purchased with the camera), and a EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5 Canon lens.

I've really enjoyed the auto focusing system and auto exposure intelligence in this camera. Most of the time, I shoot on aperture-priority and default white-balance, and get beautiful results. And I love the auto ISO capability for low-light settings.

For my most recent trip to Scotland, I purchased a circular polarizing filter for my 10-22mm lens. This is particularly good on sunny days, to add contrast and saturation to the skies and reduce the glare created by bright sunshine.
