A few days ago I received a new camera. One of my primary bodies had died unexpectedly so I decided this might be a good time to try out a different body so I ordered a Canon 7D. Depending on who you ask this model is either a great camera or a noisy piece of junk. I’m not a “pixel peeper” and am well versed in how to show to reduce noise. I also have the knowledge and software to deal with a bit of noise if necessary. My first impression is that I’m going to be very happy with this camera. Only time will tell.
