After four wonderful years with my Canon XTi, I finally got a new camera last week! There are adjustments to be made (first, I had to get used to how heavy it is!), but I’m so in love. The 7D just photographs beautifully, and I’ve had a lot of fun playing around with the video feature. I’m so, so happy I finally decided to take the next step up!

Here are a few photos from the first few days with my camera, where I was trying to acclimate myself to the settings and also test it out (boy is it faster than my XTi! That photo of my doll was taken in near-darkness, and there’s not a hint of grain!). Joseph and Leonardo are my unwilling test subjects :)

A short video. I’m just amazed by the image quality, even after being compressed for online streaming. I am going to have a lot of fun with this!

    Ok, I’m sold on the 7D now. That video quality is amazing.

      Let me know if you want to talk about it more! My dear friend Sara is the one who convinced me to upgrade from the XTi. I’m so, so glad I listened to her! I was afraid I wouldn’t actually see a jump in performance, but I definitely have!

      Thank you! I just used iMovie (which I prefer over iMovie HD). It’s what I normally use, but I might need to look into another program if I start taking more videos!
