Canon EOS 7D Digital SLR Camera

My cousin is a beginning photographer and looking to make it her career. When first starting out, she realized that a good camera was going to be a necessity, and the one she chose was a Canon EOS 7D Digital SLR Camera. This was not the average camera of a recreational user. At $2,000 MSRP, it's not something the recreational user could afford. A recreational user might spend around $200 on a simple digital camera, perhaps even around $800 for a similar model made by Canon, the EOS rebel, which sports a few of the features of this model. But for a photographer, it offers many features to help them in their profession the average user might not need. To begin with, although it is a digital camera, it allows for the same kind of adjustments and exposure that could be utilized in regular film cameras. For example, when my cousin wanted to take an exposure of the nighttime sky as the stars rotated, forming streaks in the sky on a film exposure, she was able to set the camera to obtain the same effect and resulting image, as if she were using film and not digital. You would never know the image was taken with a digital camera and not film.

The camera sports an impressive array of features. It has an eighteen megapixel sensor, which catches photographs in extremely sharp detail. There is both a color LCD viewfinder and eye level viewfinder. There are settings for all variations of lighting, including sunset, nighttime, underwater and the ability to shoot in black and white and sepia. The operator can also make adjustments to account for skin tone and eye glare and the device also has face recognition.

The shutter is extremely fast, able to take multiple shots in rapid succession for high speed action shots. Although my cousin does not use this feature, there is also an option for capturing HD video, although the length of time may be limited to the amount of storage space on the camera. The Camera accepts Type 1 and 2 CF cards and can act as an external hard drive via USB2 connection to a computer for file transfers.

This particular model comes with a variety of lenses for wide angle and detailed photography. It ships with a Canon 28-135mm zoom lens, although it is compatible with a multitude of other Canon lenses. It also comes with a CDROM of software and connection cables. So far, my cousin has been extremely happy with it!
