The new Canon EOS 7D should be an outstanding camera for outdoor photographers. It features an 18-megapixel CMOS sensor and a shooting rate of up to 8 fps, as well as Canon’s next generation of full HD video with three frame rates. The new CMOS sensor gives you highly detailed landscapes, and its ample resolution lets you crop in on landscapes or wildlife. Wildlife and action photographers will like the APS-C sensor’s 1.6x focal-length factor, and a new AF system features improved subject tracking in continuous mode, ideal for subjects like flying birds, running game or mountain-bike action. And HD video capability lets you record your nature subjects in motion, with sound.
