Roger Clark at ClarkVision (http://www.clarkvision.com/) has completed his review of the 7D Mark II and found the sensor to be the BEST low light Canon sensor on the market.

A few lines from his conclusion-

The data shown here for the Canon 7D Mark II indicate that the camera is operating at near perfect levels for the sensor with lower apparent read noise and impressively low pattern noise compared to all other current Canon cameras tested and better than that in the 7D Mark I. This means that for high signals, noise is dominated by photon statistics. Sensitivity is improved 14% over the 7D Mark 1, and the sensitivity per square micron is the highest that I have measured for any Canon camera to date.

The approximately 10x lower thermal dark current is a game changing factor, making this camera the top Canon camera for long exposure low light photography that I have tested. The superb autofocus system, comparable to Canon 1D series pro cameras with 65 autofocus points is another game changing innovation, as the camera is at a price point that is affordable to more people.

This certainly inspires me to head out and take some long exposure shots – something I have not done with the 7D Mark II at this time. I can say the 7D Mark II is one of the nicest cameras I have held in hand – feels perfect and button layout and customization are wonderful.

 I doubt many Amish have seen the movie, Ferris Bueller's Day Off but I can't get this quote out of my head "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." On our last day in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania we were treated to a beautiful sunrise, an Amish dairy farm tour, a buggy ride and beautiful blue skies. I had a few Amish buggy photos and wanted to try a panning shot - I talk about how to capture shots like this in my popular Shutter Speed Explained video - Watch at http://photorec.tv/shutterspeed/ *  Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 70mm and 1/30 second
 #oink Farm life in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania ...That'll do, pig.
 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2

  1. So I guess that this camera is better in low-light than my 70D. He never mentions the 70D, only the original 7D.
