Backscatter (who created a review of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II underwater a few moons ago that we highlighted) has produced another underwater review, but this time, they've gotten their hands on the Canon EOS 7D.
“The Canon 7D is quite possibly the best of both worlds for underwater photographers with an interest in video. This crop sensor camera allows use of the Tokina 10-17mm lens which is arguably the greatest wide angle lens ever made for underwater photography. The Canon 7D is not only priced well below $2000, it also features a pop-up flash and other features that make it a great all around camera for topside use. I made it my primary camera on a recent dive trip to Wakatobi and was very impressed by its performance. Please read on for full details.”
Please take a few minutes and read the entire review at Backscatter's site. They're awesome over there since they put in a plug for planet5D as well LOL!
Oh, and don't miss the awesome video at the very bottom of the article! (Backscatter prefers the video to be shown on their site, so skip over there to see it!).
