Another day testing out the new Canon 7D Mark II. I used the 400mm 5.6 lens for all of these shots, many of them with a 1.4 extender attached. Nice to have autofocus operating with that combination (something that wasn’t possible with the original 7D).
Only very basic processing has been done. I’ve run them through the defaults on DPP 4.0 and added a little sharpening once they’ve been reduced for the web. One or two shots have been cropped a little.
The camera itself is very comfortable to use. I still need to sort out the best settings for how I work, but will spend a little more time doing that over the weekend. Today I just wanted to play with the new toys. 😀
I’ll write more about using the camera soon, though I have to say I miss having Lightroom for processing. DPP 4.0 is ok, but like all these things it takes time to get to know, whereas basic processing was second nature in Lightroom. No doubt an update will appear soon!
Camera note: all photos taken with the Canon 7D Mark II and EF 400mm f/5.6L USM lens. The Canon EF 1.4xIII extender was used where indicated.
