I also shoot RAW+JPEG. For example, you have photo session and you make 300-400 photos. And the most of photos can be usable in JPEG if you do your job good. But if you have just one good composition with wrong lightness, you make new JPEG from RAW with corrected ligtness and that's it, photo not lost.

Why would you shoot RAW+JPEG??? I've never understood why anyone would ever possibly need this. Your card seems to be the problem anyways.

The 7D does not have built in wifi.

Does anyone know if the 7D has built in wifi? Or only the 6D has it?

"Im using 8GB transcend class 10" that might be your problem.

I hope the lack of in body stabilization isn't setting these back when most lenses (at least from cannon) come with is.

WG has Wi-Fi and GPS. W has just Wi-Fi, and N doesn't have either.

And what are going to be the differences? I'm planning to buy one. Thank you.

You forgot to mention 6d's wifi capability... I love hooking my 6d to my iPad and reviewing/ deleting pictures before I upload them to my computer. It saves a bunch of time in post

No, they are correct. The Canon 7d has an excellent focus system with 19 of its focus point being cross type focus points while the 6d literally has 1 cross type. Overall the 7d has 19 autofocus points, all of which are cross types, while the 6d has 11 autofocus points, only one of which (the center point) is a cross type. Keep in mind the 6d's center autofocus point is rated with the greatest sensitivity down to 3ev to catch focus in very low light (more sensitive than any of the 5diii's focus points). It's not an advanced system altogether, but the one extremely sensitive cross type point saves the 6d's rear. It's a very effective center point.
