After much deliberation, I have relegated my well-used (and well-loved) Canon 400D to the position of back-up camera, and bought myself a new Canon 7D to be my second camera alongside the awesome 5DmkII. I have heard and read many good things about this pairing; the combination of cropped sensor, faster focusing and wireless flash control of the 7D seems to compliment the full frame, higher ISO output of the 5DmkII, and after having them both for 24 hours, I can safely say that I am hooked!
The 7D is an amazing camera, and feels so much chunkier than the 5DmkII, with so many different features. In particular I can see myself using the different focusing modes and the super-fast shutter speed-absolutely made to take confetti throwing shots! Another great feature, that is a big factor for wedding photography, is just how quiet the shutter is, perfect for the more solemn moments in the wedding ceremony.
I can’t wait to put these two through their paces soon with some upcoming wedding and engagement photography shoots!
