Canon EOS 7D Mark III Wish List for Birds in Flight Photography

Canon EOS 7D Mark III Wish List for Birds in Flight Photography / Image Copyright: Vernon Chalmers Cape Town
Canon 7D Mark II  / 400mm Lens  :  Image: Vernon Chalmers
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II was released on 15 September 2014 as the replacement for the Canon EOS 7D that was released on 1 September 2009. 

We may be getting ever closer towards the end of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II's life cycle with current (competitive) advancements in the APS-C DSLR and Mirrorless camera market showing the real age of the EOS 7D Mark II's features and specifications.

Current Canon EOS 7D Mark II for Birds in Flight Photography
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is in my opinion a formidable APS-C DSLR with an advanced AF system just about straight out of the Canon EOS-1D X / Canon EOS 5D Mark III professional bodies. The 65-point AF system and the 1.6 crop sensor advantages were part of my decision-making for adding the Canon EOS 7D Mark II to my existing gear.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II / EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens First Impressions Article

I use the Canon EOS 7D Mark II exclusively and very frequently for Birds in Flight Photography paired with the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM lens (at Woodbridge Island, Cape Town). I'm quite happy with this pairing and the only in-the-near-future upgrade that I'm considering is the replacement of my current 400mm lens with the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens.

What I like most about the Canon EOS 7D Mark II
Before upgrading to the Canon EOS 7D Mark II I was quite satisfied capturing Birds in Flight with my Canon EOS 70D (which I still use) and if it was not for the Birds in Flight workshops I present would probably have stayed with the Canon EOS 70D for a year or so longer.

I had a brief opportunity to test a Canon EOS 7D Mark II / EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens pairing before upgrading to my own Canon EOS 7D Mark II. When comparing the Canon EOS 7D Mark II directly to the Canon EOS 70D I appreciate the following features the most: 
  • Advanced AF system with multi-controller support
  • Wide Zone AF option for erratic and small birds
  • 10 frames per second continuous shooting
  • Deeper buffer for RAW shooting
  • Slightly better ISO noise improvement
  • CF Card / Dual memory card slots

Please Note
: This article is not a Canon EOS 7D Mark III rumor, but as a current user of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II I have certain expectations (wish list) of possible specifications and features of a Canon EOS 7D Mark III DSLR camera should there be such a camera.

Canon EOS 7D Mark III Wish List / Requirements
Different Canon EOS 7D Mark II Birds in Flight photographers users will probably list all sorts of required / improved functionality that they would like to see added to a possible Canon EOS 7D Mark III - especially now after the early 2016 release of the Canon EOS 80D and the more recently released Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.

My Canon EOS 7D Mark III Wish List is based on personal preferences and will most likely be quite different for many current Canon EOS 7D mark II photographers around the world.

Other photographers may want to see 4K video, faster frame rate and a few other enhancements - below is my Canon EOS 7D Mark III wish list for my own Birds in Flight photography. 

I personally have no issues with the Canon EOS 7D Mark II's battery life,10 fps or AF / AI Servo tracking performance. 

My Canon EOS 7D Mark III Wish List Specifications (compared to Canon EOS 7D Mark II)
  • 24 - 28 Megapixel Sensor (20.2 MP) 
  • Dual DIGIC 8 Image Processors (Dual DIGIC 6) 
  • ISO 100 - 32000 (ISO 100-16000) 
  • AI Servo AF III+ Focusing / Tracking System (AI Servo AF III) 
  • 65-point AF system with 25+ AF points at f/8 (65-points / limited AF point coverage at f/8) 
  • Broader AF Point spread across the sensor 
  • Deeper Buffer / 40 - 50 RAW for continuous shooting (31 RAW) 
  • Wi-Fi / NFC and Bluetooth (none) 
  • CFast & SD Card Slots (CF & SD Card slots) 
  • 3.2" LCD touch screen (3.0" LCD non-touch screen)

New Canon EOS 7D Mark III Rumors & Announcement Updates
New Canon EOS 7D Mark III Rumors & Announcement Updates

I'm in no real hurry for adding a possible Canon EOS 7D Mark III to my Birds in Flight Photography gear - the possibility is very exiting, but before then I would more than likely replace my Canon EOS 6D with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and wait for the new Canon EOS APS-C flagship announcement (possibly later in 2018).

Show Focus Points: Adobe Lightroom Plugin for Canon DSLRs

Show Focus Points - Adobe Lightroom Plugin - Canon EOS 7D Mark II
Show Focus Points for Adobe Lightroom Version 1.01
This free plug-in is an easy and quick installation via the Lightroom Plug-In Manager and then provides access to your camera's focus points via the Library Module.

By default Adobe Lightroom 5 / 6 does not offer any way to view your camera's focus points, but the Show Focus Point Adobe Lightroom plugin shows which focus points were selected by your camera when the photo was taken.

Download >> Lightroom Show Focus Points Plugin

All the relevant EXIF data and additional focus information will be available for each image viewed via the Show Focus Points plugin. 

I find the Show Focus Points plugin in Lightroom 6 an essential part of my own workflow for fine-tuning my Birds in Flight / Action photography. 

My own software operating environment: Windows / Lightroom 6 (desktop). Show Focus Points - Adobe Lightroom Plugin works (in my post-processing environment) on Lightroom 5,7 / Lightroom 6 / Lightroom 7 Classic CC. 

During my my Adobe Lightroom private training in Milnerton, Cape Town I briefly demonstrate the Show Focus Points plugin (and installation) if required.

Download >> Lightroom Show Focus Points Plugin

AF Points Lock On
For the below Canon EOS 7D Mark II example I used Large Zone AF and the Show Focus Points plugin clearly show the four AP points that locked on - spot on in terms of the area that I focused on. The legend in the plugin will provide more detail ito specific AF-system used and which individual AF points locked on when focus was achieved (in-camera).
