1. A prototype that is very near to your spec list has 2 cf cards slots.

2. Another prototype that is a little more different has a CF and a SD card slot.

But if I look at the 6D it can be, that Canon puts 2 SD card slots in it.

I personally prefer (1).

If you put the 24-70 2.8 II on the prototype the AF-system works very very fast.

Canon cannot put the same AF-system like the 5D Mark III´s in an 7D Mark II for the mentioned price. So don´t expect it.

If you are a hobby photographer and you want a 5D Mark III or 6D wait and try out the 7D Mark II before or wait for the new big megapixel camera.

I don´t like the power eating WIFI and GPS in an 7D Mark II.

<strong>First spec list in a long time<br />


</strong>We received our first spec list for a Canon EOS 7D Mark II (we’re calling it that for now) from a known source in a while this weekend. Most people are now saying that this camera is probably being announced at the end of summer, with availability almost right away like the EOS 5D Mark III.</p>
<p>It was also mentioned that their could be as many as 3 prototype configurations of the camera out there, and this one of them.</p>
<p><b>Specifications</b></p>
<ul>
<li>24.1mp APS-C Sensor</li>
<li>Dual DIGIC V</li>
<li>10fps</li>
<li>Dual Memory Card Slots (Unknown configuration)</li>
<li>61 AF Points (I wonder if we’ll get red focus points in AIS?)</li>
<li>3.2″ LCD</li>
<li>Build quality like 5D3</li>
<li>GPS & Wifi</li>
<li>$2199 ($500 more than the 7D at launch, I’d like to see such a camera come in under $2000)</li>
<li>ISO Performance to get close to the 5D3</li>
<li>“Lots of video features”</li>
</ul>
<p>As we’ve been told before, this camera will basically be a mini EOS-1D X, and with that, comes a price increase. It was also stressed that about the only spec that may change is the sensor, as they have a few APS-C sensors available. I wonder about the megapixel count, though if Canon gets back to making industry leading sensors, I have no doubt 24mp could be a real winner.</p>

1. highlight alert (i.e. default/or auto enable like canon 20d, 30d, etc) when viewing image with histogram

Or better Zebras like real video monitors provide: with settable levels, preferable one in white for highlights, one inred for shadows, one in blue for a selected mid tone level - indicating where in the zone system a part of the picture is.
Add focus peaking for everything involving Lv and manual focus.

I just hope, that X-Sync will be at least on par with 1D mark IV (1/300) or better.

Sounds really good ... if it does have "10 fps; dual memory cards; 61 AF points and will basically be a mini EOS-1D X" I think $2199 is not too bad a deal ... of course I'd be very happy to pay less than that ... either way, this sounds really good ... time for me to start saving money.

3. exposure hold (options to enable not to timeout as long as new exposure is choosen).  i believe that with this option, i would probably moving faster than now in Av and Tv mode.  for now, i have to use manual mode all the time since exposure would be canceled during the time that i am playing around with focus point(s)

the AE lock holds for 4 seconds on the 7D. I do believe that it will lock continuously so long as you press the button at least once every 4 seconds, though i have not tested this as i do not use this feature often.

that is what i thought, but there is an option of exposure hold offered in canon 7d (not sure exactly what this does (not playing around with this option that much since i found out that it is also timed out.  i prefer there is an option to hold it until i am going to cancel it or choose another exposure.

it is kinda slow when choosing focus point and keep track exposure at the same time.  however, there is a work around in this case (i do not like it but having no choice as if i am choosing to shoot in Av or Tv) which i have haft press  shutter again prior to choosen exposure time out.  :(

as current rumor specs of 7d mark ii, it is a great config, in fact i am loving it already :)  not sure how noise at high iso turn out.

note:  if canon can help me to put this option into my 5d mark iii, i would love my canon gears more :)

it looks like what the 6d should have been but with a ff sensor.  so annoying.

will this be better than the 6d?

What you mean is the 5D3.

This is what I thought will happen. The 7DII is a high end APS-C camera for the action shooter. The 6D is the semipro camera for the landscape and portrait shooter. The cameras are priced in the same range, so it is up to the user to deceide what he want's. High FPS and sophisticated AF (7DII), or superior Image quality (6D)


how can a 7d be professional, and a 6d be semi professional? the numbers literally dont add up!    surely a FF camera has to be better than an aps-c in terms of spec.  9 af points vs 61 is just crazy!!

What If.... It also had built In RT triggers for speedlites? I'd trade that for GPS/WIFI anyday :o

magic lantern?

I'd prefer something officially supported - botching a production because of something unexpected happening in conjunction with a hack would seriously suck.

wow, sound good  8), ready for sale my 7D

Imho this sounds *too* good to be true, either Canon is going to radically change their pricing policy or the 7d2 will either be nowhere near 5d3 af/iso performance or cost a lot more €€€...

I'd prefer something officially supported - botching a production because of something unexpected happening in conjunction with a hack would seriously suck.

Magic Lantern is no hack but original quality software that has been proven a lot during the last 1-2 years.

If you are a hobby photographer and you want a 5D Mark III or 6D wait and try out the 7D Mark II before or wait for the new big megapixel camera.

But in reverse you'd still predict that the 6d will keep the edge for pro or semi-pro low light shooting, correct? However I expect the 6d price to drop a lot after the 70d/7d2 release if the aps-c iso performance has really improved.
