Canon EOS 7D Mark II Spec List [CR2]
« on: February 19, 2013, 07:48:46 AM »
First spec list in a long time
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.

It was also mentioned that their could be as many as 3 prototype configurations of the camera out there, and this one of them.

Specifications

  • 24.1mp APS-C Sensor
  • Dual DIGIC V
  • 10fps
  • Dual Memory Card Slots (Unknown configuration)
  • 61 AF Points (I wonder if we’ll get red focus points in AIS?)
  • 3.2″ LCD
  • Build quality like 5D3
  • GPS & Wifi
  • $2199 ($500 more than the 7D at launch, I’d like to see such a camera come in under $2000)
  • ISO Performance to get close to the 5D3
  • “Lots of video features”

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.

it correlates to the specification above. so, it seems 70D is going to have the same sensor.

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

will this be better than the 6d?

If true, is it me or is the Canon camera lineup getting confused? Used to be that upgrades were real upgrades, and you'd upgrade to get better features for a similar price as you originally paid. Now you're getting more, but paying more, and the difference between the bodies is getting smaller.  :o

This is why I still have my 5DII at least, I don't see a camera yet that offers a compelling upgrade.

No that's the wrong way of looking at it.
The 6D is pitched as an 'entry level' or first time FF body.
The 7D line is the 'high end' Crop body.

The spec list make the 5D3 look "inferior"…other than the sensor…
And this makes the 6D look pointless..
Isn't the smaller the number the higher end the camera?
These are features that should've been in their flagship FF cameras from day 1.

A great compliment for the 1DX,especially if you need the reach.

Not quite.

Have a look at Thom Hogan's article entitled 'The Last Camera Syndrome'. We are getting there, if not there already.

With the GPS & WiFi being integrated, I'm wondering if it'll have a pop-up flash or not.

I'm sure that the day they put the same specs on a full frame camera that is not part of the 1D serie many Canon photographers will buy it!
IMO the specs of the 6D should have looked more like the 5DIII and the 5DIII's should have looked more like these 7DII rumored specs.

gps and wifi can be dropped, who needs that on a wildlife camera? (ok gps might be handy..., but i wanna choose)

Other then that the specs look what i hoped for..., if this is true i am very likely to use this on a long lens and the 1dmkiv on a 70-200'ish

Now just hope it gets announced soon and that the specs will be like that!

The only complaint I ever heard from a 7D user was about their sensor. Now they get near 5D3 ISO ability. That is great! They also get a 25% bump in FPS, wifi, gps, upgraded AF system and a few other goodies like video features.

And who are these people complaining that this should have been the 5D3 or 6D? 10 FPS on a FF body is called the 1Dx.

I'm not even sure why I bother with the forum on this site.
