EOS 7D mrk. II
« on: June 16, 2011, 06:36:35 AM »
I have a very loose rumor about EOS 7D:

Vari-angle monitor 3" OLED 1.1 mil. pixels display (good in the sun)
Video 1080p mode with 30fps (or more) and Autofocus while filming
Live View WITH autofocus
Change able focusing screen (Rules of Thids)
21 mp with ISO 100-25600 (less noice)
Continuous shooting 12fps
Magnisium alloy body
Water resistant (Weathersealing)
19 AF points
Both CF and SD slots
2X Digic V
GPS
Wireless or possibility to use Eye FI SD-card

Can anybody verifi this?

I can verify that Canon has never made a 'rule of thirds' focusing screen (they make grid screens, but the grids are more dense than that).  Live View WITH autofocus?  The current model does that.  Bogus.  But thanks for playing!

If it is capable of 12 fps then nobody will buy the 1D Mark IV anymore.
Personally I'm hoping for an NTFS-like file system that supports files over 4 GB, and I expect more megapixels.

Not necessary: they could work around the limitation using a series of smaller files that could be merged externally.  The big problem now is that the sensor overheats shooting video, and must be shut down until it cools off.  Until the cooling problem is completely under control, file size is not the limitation.

Right, and GPS? Heh.  Someone got bored just to yank our chains.  I wonder if people think by starting rumors that they'll actually get Canon to MAKE something that they WANT . . . sure hasn't helped with the 5dmk3 :D

Well you are right that the sensor can overheat but from my experience shooting video on the 7D and T2i I've always hit the 4gb limit before the heat limit. Actually, I've never hit the heat limit that I know of. When it hits the limit and stops recording I just start again and it continues. I would really like them to address the 4gb limit.

7D2 will probably be a while. Canon can't even do a 1D update, which is 1 year overdue. So, I wouldn't hold my breath.

No, this is a wish list.
The Digic V processor will likely handle very high data throughputs, so the 7DII won’t need dual Digic Vs, just a single one.
The other specs seem plausible, although I'm not sure Canon will take the risk of putting a flip-screen on a non-consumer camera.

Right and right. Almost anyone who reads this forum could come up with similar specifications. I doubt that Canon has even started to spec out the 7D II in any serious way. It's at least a year and two other models (5D and 1Ds) away from being released.

At this point their engineers and designers are still working through options and ideas, testing durability and consumer acceptance of features introduced on other models (flip screens). No doubt the 7D team is concentrating on the next generation of APS-C sensors, squeezing a bit more megapixels out while trying to reduce noise, increase ISO and improve dynamic range.

They will wait until the 1Ds and 5D are released and then allow some of the features in those models to trickle down to the 7D after about a year.

I say there is no need for these wish lists until we see what the 5D and 1Ds can do.

I personally want 18MP or a bit more if they decide to, 1 stop better noise performance, dual CF card slot.

You can forget about 12fps unless 1D series will shoot at 15fps+.

And I personally believe they have a few things already sorted out with the 7D, I'm guessing we're going to see it next September or early 2012. For now, the 7D is more than great in my hands.

1) possibly true. but some people still buy 1ds3 years after 5d2 came out. (some people > nobody)
2) ReiserFS! it's free and it's open source! (sorry, my inner linux nerd wrote that)

They'd be 2 entirely different cameras still, and 12fps wouldn't convince me a 7DII was the better of the 2.

As a cinematographer i would really like to see 1080P 60FPS and maybe 720P 120FPS. Full time auto-focus and ISO-levels with less noise would also be great.
