The camera's mirror and optical viewfinder are removed and the original sensor block is rigidly reinstated in connection with the one-piece 3/8" threaded steel mounting bracket and PL lens mount, which ensures that all critical elements of the camera move as one. A 3-pin Fischer connection is added to allow start/stop control when using a handgrip system or remote camera controls. This makes the modified 7D ideal for remote rigs, car rigs and cranes/jibs.
The 7D utilizes an APS-C sensor, closely matching the size and depth-of-field characteristics of other single-sensor digital cameras. The new FGV 7D-PL is a professional moviemaking tool that can accept most popular PL lenses.
