they know how to make a snazzy video...

now if the focus points can truly track that quickly and accurately as it was shown on the dancer in low light (or any light) ... that is impressive...

I'm a little disappointed that with all the new features, AEB is still limited to 3 exposures.

I don't know if this has been posted before or not but here's a link to download the 7D Mk II basic manual:

Hi Gene,

I think you can change the number of bracketed exposures in the custom menu (3, 2, 5 or 7 exposures). Check out page 435 of the manual.

Thanks. I was looking at the basic manual, as linked to above, and it only mentioned 3 exposures. I've now found the full manual and you are correct. I'm glad this feature was added among the other new features of the 7D Mk II.

Here's the link for the full manual:

I don't know if you can change this in the menu, but it really doesn't matter much to me, because If I wanted to change things, I'd just shift things manually.

What does make a huge difference to me, bringing the 7D up to the 1D models, is the ability to AF beyond f/5.6...!

C'mon nay-sayers and have some fun!!

Maybe you missed my point...

It should (I assume) be simple to shift manually to a desired shutter speed, aperture, or focus, to manually shift your exposure bracketing (something I've always done) although sure some "fancy" cameras have expanded the capability....

What is the important thing I was bringing out was the ability for the 7DII to do AF at beyond f/5/6 (thinks f/8), which from what I know is new for cameras beyond the 1D series...!!!

Not to take sides, but I concur in that I always "bracket" manually,. just take a few with different exposures. I never actually use the feature built into the camera, BUT what works for me is meaningless for others. We all want different things, and have different priorities.

Anyway, it's there and that's cool!

I thought 5D3 does that also.

But speaking about the bracketing, If it's just a shot or two, I agree I would do it manually. But otherwise I would use the auto bracket option. Here is something that the new Canon have as an option. You can leave the AEB at 5 or 7, and if you want to just use 3, you can jump to use the in camera HDR instead and leave the AEB alone. There is a downside to this option, this option is very limited and there is extra processing time for the HDR leaving the camera kinda unusable afterward for a little while. But it's an option.

Ah, OK, if you are saying the 5D will AF at f/8 good! I don't have one yet:)!

' is the ability to AF beyond f/5.6' worth the price of admission for some.

and sorry - but are we talking about using extenders or what is the issue/feature in layman's terms?

For this some yes. The AF is gravy, and all kinds of toppings.

Yes we are talking extenders. The f/8 aperture applies to lenses + extenders that cause the maximum aperture to be f/8. A 1.4TC causes a 1 stop aperture change and a 2XTC causes a 2 stop aperture change.

Smallest maximum native lens aperture is f/5.6 for use with a 1.4XTC and f/4 for a 2XTC.
