Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor


This is in response to a posting by Jack Atley who has two Canon 7Ds on order and his comment about  the 7D having audio metering, the only camera that gives you audio meters is the Canon 5D2 using a reversed engineered firmware by Magic Lantern, but beware if you screw this up you could end up with a dead Canon 5D Mk11…!

I don’t want anyone buying a 7D with the misconception that it has features like audio metering when it clearly has not !


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

One thought on “Canon 7D tech specs (No audio metering)

  1. Thanks for the Heads Up I have used a magic lantern 5d and did not realise the audio levels were part of that firmware. Looks like the N4s will remain in the kit bag 🙂
