This might be one of the oddest things I’ve seen, yet still unique and intriguing. Two young Japanese performers known as the Helicopter Boyz have multiple Nikon Coolpix S1000pj cameras strapped to them and the cameras project various images during the choreographed dance. Click on the second box for the video.

I’m interested in buying a 7d so I’ve been doing a lot of research on the camera. I found this page to have one of the most easy to follow and informative reviews of the camera. They do a good job of covering the video mode on the 7d. That’s one of the main reasons I’m interested in the camera.
Some of the interesting bits of information I found about the camera are :
One of the major downsides to the 7D is the 12 minute recording limit for video.

We noticed the camera getting very warm (dare we say hot?) during recording durations longer than 4-5 minutes in an air-conditioned room.

Another troubling omission on Canon’s part is the audio recording capabilities on the 7D…the camera has automatic gain control (AGC), which adjusts the volume of the audio signal inside the camera. The problem? It’s impossible to disable. If the point of an SLR is to give the user full control over the tiniest details of their camera setup, then there is absolutely no reason why this crucial function should be left to the camera’s discretion.
