EOS 7D Replacement Mentioned Again [CR1]
By| March 11, 2014
A few bits of information about the possible replacement to the EOS 7D are trickling in, although there’s nothing I would call concrete.
We’re told again that the camera is being tested with some kind of a “hybrid viewfinder”, no details were given. Although, it’s possible the feature doesn’t make it into the production camera. A brand new image sensor will appear in the camera, with a resolution just under 25mp.
The camera will have dual memory card slots, CF and SD. Retaining CF is a big deal and will make a lot of people happy.
The camera is said to have the most features at the software level of any Canon DSLR ever, though there were no examples of what could possibly be new. I do agree this camera will have to be extremely feature rich to be successful.
It doesn’t feel like the hype machine has started yet, so I do not think the camera is “around the corner”.
