First Round of EOS 7D Mark II Specs [CR1]
« on: November 26, 2012, 04:25:37 PM »

First EOS 7D Mark II Specs Surface

From an unknown source, a vague spec list surfaces for a new APS-C Canon EOS 7D Mark II. The person says an announcement will be coming near the end of February.


 


Specs



  • 24.2mp APS-C Sensor

  • 10.2 fps

  • Dual DIGIC V

  • Dual Card Slot (No mention of card types)

  • New Ergonomic Design

  • New Battery

  • February¬†2013 Announcement


Since the source is a new one, take this with a grain of salt.

Hmm, what's wrong with the LP-E6 battery?  It was kept for the 5DIII.  While I doubt I will buy a 7DII, if I were too, that would be a pain - given a current collection of 8 LP-E6s, used across 3 bodies.

If these specs are close, I would buy one.  I think it would make a nice remote camera for the sports work I do.  So long as they improve the high ISO over the original 7D.

Sigh!  A new ergonomic design?  We've heard that before and ended up with an overly small camera that was difficult to hold unless you were a child.  New battery might be possible considering the 1DX.  A higher voltage would also help the AF speed...which isn't lacking on the E6 battery but its not the fastest with such.

"New Ergonomic Design"

the 7D was pretty damn perfect (pretty sure that's why the 5D mark III is clearly modelled on it) - shouldn't try to fix something that isn't broken.

I'm not sure about the increase in MP - sure it'll have an all new sensor but still - 18mp would be just fine on an upgraded sensor, no need to up it.

I hope that the new sensor is really innovative to be that size.  I can't see much in the way of noise improvement with a sensor that size in APS-C format. I will be buying one if these specs are close, along with an improvement in noise reduction at higher ISO.

The 7D fit my man hands pretty damn well, the 5D3 is even better. If they make it smaller it will fubar the balance.

No mention of the AF system. If it's the same as the 5D III, then Canon will have a stellar APS-C offering!  I'd consider getting one once the price comes down.  I suspect this will be priced higher than the 6D.

This looks promising but knowing canon, a last minute fumble seems highly probable.

++1  First thing I thought as well!  Say it isn't so!!  Nothing wrong with the LP-E6 Battery!!  I carried the same batteries with the 5Dc and 30D/40D.  Then I got the 60D with the newer battery.  Now I finally have battery continuity again with the 5D3 + 60D and if I got a 7D2, I would carrying two different batteries again.  Come On Canon!!  Aaaargh!   :(

24+ MP on a crop sensor might be scary.

Hate to have a bad attitude here but based on the pricing from Canon this year, they will probably initially ask for the moon for the thing.  Obviously from the deals we are seeing for the 5D3 now, the initial retail price is very inflated.
Yes, but what would  surapon  say ??  :D

I hope it comes with the same crappy AF performance as the 7D1, otherwise, I'm not interested.

A 7D without OOF issues is NOT a 7D!!!

It all sounds like a big, wild guess to me.

I also suspect it's guesswork, although they're plausible guesses. But high frame-rate Canons tend to do whole-number frames per second, not 10.2, hence my scepticism.

Maybe the 7DII will have the rumored new revolutionary sensor with better high-ISO performance and more dynamic range than its predecessors and anything else on the market.
