Canon EOS R7
The Canon R7 features a 32.5-megapixel (APS-C) CMOS sensor which enables fast continuous shooting with high speed autofocus and more definition and sharpness. This works especially well if you are cropping your shots as content creators often do.
The DIGIC X image processor, which is one of Canon’s many proprietary secrets of engineering, is featured in the EOS R7 and is much faster than the DIGIC 8. DIGIC X powers is what enables the EOS R7’s stunning 4k resolution video capture and reduces noise.
For active creators or those who record while moving around, the EOS R7 showcases a 5-axis in body image Stabilization with auto-leveling technology, or IBIS for short. This gives you up to 7 stops of shake correction which is a spectacular feature for handheld video recording and low light photography. The IBIS is also built within the body of the R7, so you wouldn’t need active stabilization from a lens kit. IBIS is a top-notch stabilization feature and enables new features like Auto Level, which will level out your frame if the camera is tilted.
Featuring the same Dual Pixel CMOS Auto-Focus technology as one of Canon’s top cameras the R3, this is widely considered as one of the most advanced tracking systems. It provides presets to automatically identify different subjects such as people, animals, and vehicles. This powerful system will allow you to grab clear and focused images and footage on the fly without the need to adjust your settings. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology in correlation with the awesome DIGIC X processor will track your subject to perfection and ensure you get the right exposure no matter how harsh your lighting environment may be. The EOS R7 offers a max FPS with max Res Auto Focus + Auto Exposure of up to 15 FPS for their mechanical shutters with 1/8000 shutter speed standard. There is an electric shutter feature with speeds that max out at 1/16000.
For video recording, the EOS R7 produces 4k in 60p, which can be sampled down from 7k for even sharper images but with a 1.82x crop. With the R7, you do have the option of shooting 4k60p with no crop, but the finish is a little softer and it is suggested to use the crop if you’re seeking the sharper image. The EOS R7 video creator kit can shoot in 10-bit HDR and 10-bit HDR+C-Log3 which allows you to capture maximum dynamic range resulting in a flat profile that gives more flexibility for post-production edits.
When it comes to its sleek design, the EOS R7 will feel great in your hands and easy to bring with you anywhere because of its compact size and weighs only 18.7 ounces. The R7 features a newly added fully customizable wheel or ring encompassing the operating dial which allows you to save your favorite settings and presets. This is a fantastic feature for those who shoot in changing environments and keeps you in control during pivotal moments. The EOS R7 has dual card slots and USB 2nd Gen 3.2 USB-C and is also dust and moisture resistant.

There are directional controls which cater to every environment. Shotgun mode keeps the audio front faced which is great for first person or interview recordings. Stereo mode will capture audio over a broader range which is great for recording more ambient sound like when you’re shooting outdoor wildlife or performance. The DM-E1D has easy operation with a menu button on the back of the mic and added setting control on your EOS R7 display screen. This is a very versatile microphone that will support you in taking your vision from your imagination and bringing it to content.
