[. . . ] This model is now equipped with the AF area selection lever for even easier switching between modes.
* Number of available AF points, cross-type points, and Dual cross-type points vary depending on the lens.
This model is equipped with the same AF Configuration Tool as the EOS-1D X, making the optimum AI Servo AF settings possible to match the movement characteristics of the subject.
The AI Servo AF (movement AF) on the EOS 7D Mark II uses the same AI Servo AF III algorithm as on the EOS-1D X. This feature makes flexible, high-precision focusing possible to match subject movement. The AF Configuration Tool is what makes it possible to customize the properties of AI Servo AF and optimize focusing to fit the subject and shooting situation. When using this function simply choosing from the 6 presets from Case 1 to 6 allowed for customization of parameters such as tracking sensitivity. [. . . ] This mode is easy to
use when you want to focus on areas of the subject that are a larger size, making it possible to easily capture the appropriate area.
Blue color of focus point is for illustration.

for capturing the subject in a general area
When [Large Zone AF] is set, the area in the selected zone will be displayed.
Select from three zones: Left, Center, Right
You can select large zones from left, center, and right blocks. AF frames will automatically be selected inside the selected zone.
The newest AF area selection mode on the EOS 7D Mark II is Large Zone AF. This new mode features larger zones (left, center, or right in the screen) than Zone AF, and automatically selects AF points for focusing. Just as with Zone AF, the
camera determines the closest subject within the zone and focuses. Even when shooting close-ups of a subject, this feature is effective for keeping the subject in a general area such as the left, center, or right of the screen.
This is a photo of an airplane shot against the sky with Large Zone AF. The right zone is selected and you follow the plane and take the shot as the nose enters the zone. The AF point is automatically selected on the right side of the screen and the camera focuses on the appropriate location.

AI Servo AF
When using [One-Shot AF], a single AF point is selected automatically from the 65 points. When using [AI Servo AF], AF starts from the manually selected AF point and then selects the most appropriate from all 65 points. The person is captured with the AF point toward the left of the screen, and the AF point then switches for shooting In [AI Servo AF] setting, the AF point to the left of the screen is selected. Once the person is captured at that position, 65-point automatic AF selection switches points, focuses, and shoots continuously. With EOS iTR AF color and face detection tracking, the person is accurately and continuously focused on.
Hints and tips
With [AI Servo AF] mode, it is possible to start shooting using a manually selected AF frame covering the subject. Major lenses

Equal priority This setting gives an equal priority to both focus and shutter-release Release priority This setting gives priority to shutter-release and will capture an image even if it is out of focus. It is effective when you want to minimize any delay when shooting, sacrificing AF performance Focus priority This setting gives priority to focusing on a subject and it cannot capture an image unless it is in focus. It is recommended when you want to ensure your images are in focus sacrificing response speed.
