Measuring approximately 116.8 (w) x 90.7 (h) x 69.4 mm (d) and weighing only around 370 grams*1, the EOS Kiss X7 realizes reductions of approximately 25% in volume and 28% in weight compared with the EOS Kiss X6i, released in June 2012. Despite its compact, lightweight body, made possible through the downsizing of such components as the shutter unit and CMOS package, the diminutive camera’s APS-C-size approximately 18.0-megapixel CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 image processor combine for exceptional image quality and a high-speed continuous shooting speed of approximately 4 frames per second. Additionally, offering a maximum standard ISO of 12800*2 (expandable to ISO 25600), the X7 enables the capture of images with reduced noise and image blur, even in low-light conditions and when shooting a moving subject.
When capturing images in Live View mode or shooting movies, the Kiss X7’s newly developed Hybrid CMOS AF II combines high-precision contrast AF and high-speed phase-detection AF, the latter made possible by the camera’s CMOS sensor, to enable high-performance AF across approximately 80% vertically and horizontally of the image-display area. By offering a larger focus area than the earlier model, users can realize improved focusing performance and compose shots with greater flexibility.
The EOS Kiss X7 includes three all-new family-oriented scene modes—Kids, Food and Candlelight—which, added to the previous HDR Backlight Control, Night Portrait and Handheld Night Scene, bring the total number of special-scene shooting modes to six. The Kids mode lets users capture blur-free images of even the most active of children while ensuring healthy skin tones. The Food mode makes possible bright, vivid, visually savory images. And the Candlelight mode enables the capture of images that preserve the ambiance of scenes illuminated by candlelight alone, such as the candles on a birthday cake.
