Canon recently released the above new promo video for the Canon 7D Mark II. I think it’s a fantastic all-around camera and I’m actually considering buying one for myself.
Am I the only one that thinks the impact of Canon’s promo videos are overly stale? I just cringe watching some of these videos whenever a new camera comes out.
Or, are these video really getting people excited about the cameras and actually moving product for Canon?
Kai from DigitalRev is back with another over-the-top camera review. This time he pits the Nikon D7200, Canon 7D Mark II and Canon 70D against each other with an ultimate test (… I use that term loosely) in AF performance by pitting three shooters against each other in a very unique photography challenge.

That would suck and be pretty much a pointless feature since a second of video footage from a timelapse would contain at least 24 images (e.g., 1080p video at 24fps). [Read more…]
