First shots with my 7D
May 1, 2012

Hello!

First time post in this forum! I bought a 7D as a back up and crop alternative to my 5D2 on Sunday - and I have to say that I actually prefer it as a camera in lots of ways.

I just wanted to share some images from my first 2 days, C&C welcome.

Thanks for the feedback!

The birds and moon were 100-400L and I think that the one of my son was the 50mm f1.8 at ISO 800 then mangled to taste in lightroom.

How much were they at Adorama? I got a really good deal on mine in the UK but I'd love to know how much cheaper yours are!

I love that Moon shot, it's very sharp and perfectly exposed.

Correct, lens mounted on the tripod, focus in live view, mirror lock up and cable release. I bought my father a tracker for his 60th a few years ago but I've not tried it at all.

Thanks for the kind words

Thanks for Posting these images. I am literally 20 minutes from walking out my door to purchase a 7D. I have been reading so much about the apparent soft focus issue that i have almost talked myself out of the 7D! My local Camera store has the 7D with 18-135 lens for $1853. I cant even get that good of deal on the internet. I hope to post a few images this evening

I've not found a soft focus issue yet - but I've only had it 3 days

Good luck with your new camera!

Great shots! But please keep in mind this is a forum for amateurs who are trying to become better photographers...not professional photographers like you.

Only joking!

If these are your first shots PLEASE make it a habit to post more shots in the future because these are very good

Call up Canon and ask about the loyal customer program. i got my 7D last week for $1087 + tax . Refurbished, but looked like new. Then also ask about a 20% discount on any lenses or flashes you may want to purchase at the time. I bought camera , 3 lenses and a flash all for 20% off. It doesnt hurt to check it out.

Thank you for the kind words Steve, I only make some of my money from photography though and that's all variations on product photography...
