I have attempted to search the bunches and bunches of 7D threads on here and have not seen anyone post if they have used the 7D at a wedding.
Just trying to get any real life feedback if anyone has used it and the low light functionality of a wedding.
Thanks.

Until I can edit RAW files in Aperture, the 7D will remain a backup! :)

Not what you are asking for, but this is wedding video shot with the 7D.

There is a link to a blog in the video description, perhaps the photographer talks about shooting with the 7D there.

I would use a 7D for weddings if I ever wanted to buy another crop sensor camera - which I don't because I have too much need for full frame DoF control.

If I were looking for another wedding body right now, I'd definitely get the 7D. But I already have my wedding kit set for now. But if one of my 40D's or my 1D mark III breaks or gets lost, I would most certainly replace it with a 7D.

I would use it for weddings. It's just like any other crop cameras. However, the support for editing might be limited at this time because it is a new camera.

To the OP, what is the specific question on your mind? You merely need to know how the 40D or 50D work in wedding settings, and factor in the general advantages of the 7D over either of those cameras and how those features/advantages are utilized (or not) in the wedding shooting situation.

Just trying to see / hear from people that have used the 7D for weddings. To see how the higher ISO handles in low light, how the focusing with L lenses is and the general feel they have from the camera.

Thanks for the response.

I already use a 1.6x crop for weddings and love it. Just was curious about the actuality of the improvements of the 7D.

I think the usage for weddings is inherently limited for now, until RAW processors can handle the camera.
