Scott Kelby on the Canon 7D Mark II
First sports photographer Peter Read Miller shared his thoughts on the new 7D Mark II, then wildlife photographer Adam Jones shared his thoughts. Now Scott Kelby shares why he thinks this camera is a game changer! Between the incredible high ISO quality, 10fps frame rate, autofocus system, and affordability, this camera allows photographers to shoot things that they previously would’ve needed a more expensive body (and much larger budget) to shoot.

The Canon 7D Mark II is now shipping, so if this camera is one you want to add to your camera bag, you can order it now from B&H Photo!
