DigitalRev finds out how durable an EOS 7D is...

Being a 7D owner (and being known on POTN for taking it out in the snow and rain and getting it absolutely soaked or covered in snow and hail and mud and stuff) It was kinda painful, but also VERY gratifying to me at the end

Also as Kai said "The fact is cameras like this are built to last, they dont need to be coddled and stuck in a box somewhere safe from every little thing"

And thats why I own my 7D, I can shoot wherever whenever i want, and i dont worry about my 7D quitting on me in the middle of something...

Can't believe it could still shoot after the fire.

Great stuff.

Live long 7D. Live long.

as intense and over the top that test was. i still would rather have a FF camera but at the time of purchase there were not many FF options that were good with video and sports shooting and still affordable lol

i would use my 7D more often if it was not a crop camera. but for sports shooting it does a very nice job biggrin.gif
