EOS 70D & EOS 7D Mark II
« on: May 16, 2013, 08:54:40 AM »

Not much buzz

There isn’t much information out there about Canon’s next APS-C cameras. Canon has alluded to the fact that both cameras are coming, we just don’t know when. We’ve been told previously by very good sources that only the EOS 70D will be available in 2013, though the EOS 7D Mark II could be announced in late 2013 for early 2014 availability.


We’re told a “surprise” announcement will be made by Canon in July, what that is we’re unsure. However, the source alluded to it being a camera body. I wouldn’t call the EOS 70D a “surprise”, but we’ll see. Could it be…….. something else?

I wonder if we paid them some more money if they could move a little slower for us.

Lets see...
* Canon announces RAW video in official firmware
* Canon announces 4k video in official firmware for 1DX/5DIII with some special add on device
* Canon announces a m4/3 camera plus lenses
* Canon announces a new EOS-M series camera that is radically different
* Canon announces a DSLR wither either hybrid or pure EVF
* Canon announces a DSLR that is modeled on the Ricoh GX-R with a plugable sensor/CPU module
* Canon announces a 70D with the autofocus from the 5DIII
* Canon announces a new APS-H DSLR (not likely)

... other ideas?

" the source alluded to it being a camera body" just some neat tech feature in the new EOS M perhaps.
Canon 60D, 24-105, 50 F1.8. 430EX II.
Sigma 10-20, 70 F2.8, 70-300. Studio.
Giotto tripod, Hoya filters.

Canon would surprise a whole lot of people if they announced a non-18Mp aps-c sized sensor..

 It's so very sad how true this is.

I actually want phone integration to be an option in Canon cameras, that way I would have an excuse to bring it everywhere.

"But it's my phone" I'd say to the restaurant manager while pointing at the ten pound lump.
Calls would basically have to be done in speakerphone or with a headset, but that's ok since that makes it a hands free device when driving.

I'm thinking that the 70D and 7D2 will be too-little-too-late. :(

I agree, Canon sensors are to late

Gee, I guess it's a good thing that Canon sells cameras, not just sensors....and they continue to sell more of them than their competition.

you can think what you want, the rest is easy to catch up, speed, AF ergonomic  etc  but not the sensor, and there are the Canon Inc  hopeless bypassed by Sony, Aptina, Panasonic, Toshiba, Omnivision, Renesas, and many more  today
And , bigger companies has fallen than Canon when they are not up to date.

Ahh, yes...the rest is so easy to catch up, and lenses, flashes, etc., too. That must be why Nikon, Sony, et al., are selling so many more dSLRs than Canon.  Oh, wait...they're not.  The thing is, if it was 'so easy' than Canon would have been losing market share ever since their sensors 'fell behind'. But they've been gaining.

Also, it's easy to fall into the trap of thinking that the opposite of better is bad.  The opposite of better is worse, and in the case of Canon's 'not better' sensors, worse is still pretty damn good.

Canon have  lived on a long time  on their name and early cmos  sensor tech since 2004, sorry but this tech is old 2013 which can been seen if you compare to   Nikon, Pentax, Sony =  DXO scores etc  why are no Canon in the DXO list over best sensors at all ?
Do you have any nuanced view at all or whats going on  ?

Who needs a nuanced view?  Every year for which there are sales data and during which Nikon sensors beat Canon sensors on DxOMark, Canon sold more dSLRs.  Nuances aren't helping your case.
