Hi
5D2 or 7D?
I'm thinking 5D2 because of the full frame. But i'm hearing 7D shoots in 24p...
Is this such a big deal?

Really depends on what setting you use it for.

For sports, wildlife or anything that moves fast and/or far away, 7D looks to be the ideal camera.

For most other subjects, especially in low light, 5D2 is likely to be superior in terms of raw image quality.

These cameras have very different features. It should be an easy decision based on what you shoot.

Yeh thanks.
I'm very much an all rounder with what i shoot.
I'll be going from a 20D so either will be amazing!

I'm edging towards the 5D
I was concerned about the 24p on the 7D.
Will it be noticeably better than the 5D's 30p?

unless your footage is destined for final output to the big screen..i wouldn't worry about 24p..I have a couple of CanXHA1 HDV and shoot almost exclusively in the frame mode which is 30fps . It matches very well with footage from the 5D2

Who knows anything about the 7D? They might be a lemon.
