720p @ 24p / 25p / 30p ? Why not...
Nov 1, 2009

Hi guys,

I love the video function on the 7D, it saves me quite a bit on buying an additional HD camcorder. But I simply cannot understand why Canon did not implement 720p @ 24p / 25p / 30p , it's not a big technical issue. The 500D has 720 @ 30p. The reason I would love this is because if I take the camera from home for a long time ( say.. On vacation) I don't want to bring 4 x 64gb flash cards to shoot 4 hours video & 2000 photos.

Another reason is 720p footoage is much less resource demanding. For simple family shoots and webvideo's 720p is more than enough, and it doesn't take all night to render..

Does anyone share this opinion? It's a simple fix for a firmware update.

Greetings,

Tim
