You Just Bought A Canon 7D Now What!

Norman Pogson

Buying a Canon 7D is a smart move well done, don't second guess yourself with, should I have got the new 550/T2i for half the price? The Canon 7D can do so much more on the photo side and it is tried and tested on the video side, there has to be some downside to a new camera for half the price.

The forums are full of questions from new Canon 7D owners about codecs. It is the single biggest barrier to earning a quick fortune in stock footage.
