When the Canon 7D came out in 2009, it soon became one of the most popular DSLRs ever. It was fast, rugged, with great video features, all for a whole lot cheaper than the more pro-oriented 5D Mark II. Five years later, the 7D Mark II makes its debut with plenty of powerful specs, yet it's not likely to be the same…
Oh my god, it's finally here. The Canon 7D Mark II, probably the most anticipated, rumored, speculated-about camera in years, is ready to make its debut. It's been five years since the original 7D hit shelves in 2009, so you better believe the expectations are high for the Mark II to be the messiah of mid-range DSLRs.
The holidays are approaching fast, and it's time to start picking up some gifts: for friends, family, even yourself.

The Canon T2i dSLR sounded extremely exciting, as it promised to bring 1080P video (with decent frame rates) to Canon's sub-$1000 dSLR line. Photographer Dan Chung was among the first to test it out, and the results look fantastic.
In film and video, if you want to rack focus, a "follow focus" makes the job a lot easier. Attaching to the focus ring, a follow focus can be as simple as a stick or as complicated as a gearbox.
We're in kind of a golden age of DSLR cameras. They're cheaper than ever, so they're affordable, and they do more stuff than ever, so the time's right to jump in. Here's our DSLR picks for every (non-pro) budget.
For a long time with Canon, if you weren't dropping nearly three grand on a 5D, you were stuck with a vastly lesser DSLR. The $1700 7D is Canon's first semi-pro DSLR, and actually it's my favorite yet.
