First Impressions: Canon 7D Mk II

The Canon 7D Mk II has been in development for many years now, and the company’s track record of staying conservative sticks true to this latest product. When the first 7D launched, it made waves in the APS-C world with its super fast FPS rate and its complementary features to the 5D Mk II. Canon’s choices to stick to the safe side and make modest improvements isn’t a bad one per se at all–but we’d be telling complete lies to say that we didn’t expect more.

As far as the feature set goes, Canon has a 20.2MP APS-C sensor at the heart of the camera that also shoots at 10fps, houses dual DIGIC 6 processors, 65 cross type AF points, a 100% viewfinder, a magnesium alloy camera body, dust and weather resistance that is said to be 4x better than the original, GPS integration, a CF and SD card slot, ISO ranges from 100-16,000, a custom movie servo mode and much more.

We took a look at the 7D Mk II earlier last month.

Use Bulb Ramping to Make Your Timelapse Exposures Smoother

Bulb Ramping Tutorial from Joel Schat on Vimeo.

Bulb Ramping is a method of using an intervalometer to make minute changes to a camera during a timelapse capture sequence–and of course this needs to be done in bulb mode. It will overall make the video that you’re trying to create have a smoother transition if you’re shooting from day to night. Alternatively, you could set the camera to an auto mode and then try to de-flickr in post, but that will overall be very taxing on your computer’s video memory. The video above shows you how to do that and tries to educate the viewer more on the method, but it also tries to pitch a new product: the PromoSystems Controller.

Make sure you have a good and fast memory card too, as they tell you to shoot RAWs.

It’s worth it to check out the entire video.
