Canon U.S.A., Inc. is announcing the new EOS 7D Digital SLR Camera featuring fast eight fps continuous shooting, 18-megapixel resolution and Full HD video recording with variable frame rates and manual exposure control. Far more than a slight improvement from a previous model, the EOS 7D DSLR is a brand new product that stands on its own with new features never before seen in any Canon camera.
Along with the EOS 7D, Canon is also announcing three new lenses; the EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM, EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, and EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lenses. The new EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens is the first SLR camera lens to feature Hybrid Image Stabilization.
Canon is also announcing the new WFT-E5A wireless file transmitter exclusively for the EOS 7D Digital SLR camera. The WFT-E5A wireless transmitter offers professional photographers a wide range of digital connectivity options including IEEE802.11a/b/g and Ethernet, ideal for commercial and studio work.
