Canon announce EOS 7D DSLR

Canon have announced the forthcoming release of the EOS 7D DLR. Apparently, Canon consulted over 5,000 photographers to ask them what they needed most from their camera. The D7 features 18 megapixels and a 19-point cross-type AF sensor, and a new metering system, the Focus Colour Luminance (iFCL) which intelligently measures focus, colour and luminance across 63 zones.

It also has a dual layer sensor to gather information from each distinct zone to produce an accurate, consistent exposure. In addition, it offers an Integrated Speedlite Transmitter, allowing photographers to control external speedlites with no additional accessories and Full HD 1080 movie shooting.
