My last camera had a setting where I could press the focus point button on the eye, then move the camera any where and the focal point would stay the same. I just recently got a Canon 7D and was wondering if that has the same function? I asked the guy at the camera store and he wasn't sure how to set that up.
I have just made my first 7D videos and made some of them with the camera in the portrait position. I'm a photographer and I do this all the time. Can I rotate them and use them or do I start over???
Hey guys- first post here and I've got a question I'd like answered. Earlier today I was filming with my 7D at 1280x720 60p and had been filming for close to an hour and a half with it when the scary flashing red thermometer came flashing on my LCD screen! I was terrified.
just a quick question. i recently purchased a Canon 7D with a Canon 70-200mm f/4 IS lens. for the most part, it's an awesome camera, however, when i use the zoom lens to take pics at my sons basketball game they come out grainy. i've tried playing around with the settings but i just cant seem to get a really crisp shot. could it be that the f/4 is not good enough and i would need to upgrade to a f/2.8? any help would be great.
i own a 7d, a sigma 17-70mm 2.8-3.? and i'm not really satisfied with the performance, i'd like to ask help on what lens i could aim for in the near future. i'd like a walk around lens, something i'd be having for keeps. help.
Hi there, I bought 7d few days back, took a few shots, and I connected it to my Mac using te USB cable provided to copy the images. But the device is not being recognized, I mean it is not showing under "Devices"
May be a weird question but i'm using the canon 7D to catpure the streaming from the screen to my laptop for artistic purposes.
Camera was working fine until today when I was recording some video. The video buffer filled up within 5 seconds and recording stopped. Also on these tiny clips it was not recording sound. I tried several cards (formatted etc) so not a card issue. However, if I set "Sound Recording" to off, the video recording works fine.
I can set my 7d for AF Point Expansion, but when I press the shutter I only get a single point, and not the additional four expansion points. It looks like Single Point AF. I'm enabling AF Point Expansion and setting it. Very strange because I've used it before.
EOS 7D--After shooting with my 580EX Speedlight the pop-up flash no longer works. It appears the microswitch under the left side of metal potion of the hot shoe is depressed thus locking out the pop-up. It thinks it still has an external flash in place. Is there anyway one can get the microswitch to return to its normal position? Though it is under warranty I have not time to send it in for repairs as I use it almost every day. roisenp
HeroicDaze.com Shot with a canon 7D!!!!!!
Hi everyone, I have a very basic question and I'm an amateur to say the least. I will be at a restaurant tonight with the family. I will not have the ability to bring a tripod, and it will be low lighting. Any recommendations for the best setting. Typically I shoot on the manual setting, but should I switch to Aperture priority?
Totally new & positively frustrated here. This is probably elementary to many of you (judging from the video clips I've seen here. GREAT WORK!) What do I need to do to get my .mov file to play smoothly? I have it loaded on my computer but playback is jerky, video stalls while voice continues, etc. It is a huge file 799,367kb (at least compared to my photo files I'm use to working with). Tried to load it on to Youtube and it said it was going to take 133 minutes. For some reason I thou...
What lenses are best for shooting video on a Canon DSLR in low light?
This site offers amazing contact possibilities for 7D people; but I get the impression nobody is home. Anyone else feel the same? What can we do about it? Maybe Canon needs to optimize us to be easily found.
Hey guys, I am thinking of buying the canon 7d, but i heard that the new 7D MARK 2 is coming soon and i better wait for that. Do you know when this camera will be released ?
Hi, I just got purchased the 7d which Im loving and I managed to figure out how to film and then watch my clip in slow motion on the lcd screen but when I transfer it to my mac its not in slo mo. Is there way of transferring it so that its still slo mo? Perhaps Im not meant to do this way not sure but if not then what is the point of having the slo mo function? Thanks
Hi, all! My long-time dream to shoot own quality / beautiful / interesting videos.
Hi all, I'm here to see if anyone has managed to find lens adapters that work properly on the 7D. I have manual focus/aperture lenses with Pentax K and Olympus OM mounts but the adapters I've tried don't work as advertised. I can't get any form of AF confirmation in either Aperture Priority or Manual mode, despite the description of the adapters saying you can. I've tried three adapters from different sellers, they all worked with my 300D but none with the 7D. The only modes they work in are ...

MY CANON 7D WONT LET ME TAKE A PHOTO WHILE IN THE LIVE VIEW MODE, WHAT AM I DOING WRONG
Hello everybody, I have been looking into zoom-lenses for hd video. Why I want to use zoomlenses is because filming out of hand or even with a rig, I really need IS to keep the shots steady. And I never heard of primes with IS function.

I just purchased a 7D for the purpose of shooting both stills and video. I wanted to have lenses that would cover almost everything I need for both of those objectives. I have picked up a Canon 70-200mm 2.8 IS II, a Tokina 11-16mm and a Zeiss 50mm 1.4. Will that be sufficient or am I really missing out with the 17-69mm (minus the 50mm) zoom ranges? I've already spent so much money on all this. One thing I'm thinking I'm missing is a good macro lens because I do like to occassionally go to gar...
Hope you like it.
Hi, I would like to know if there is a setting for using the red focus squares on the LCD instead of the viewfinder? If so, Could you please explain how to set this up? Thanks, Ray
