EOS 7D Mark II Spec List Surfaces [CR1]
« on: October 27, 2013, 10:07:00 AM »

EOS 7D Mark II in March?

A spec list has shown up for an EOS 7D Mark II with a possible announcement in March of 2014.


According to the rumor, the sensor is not yet confirmed, though it does mention it won’t be the same as the EOS 70D. Also a mention of innovative video features, something we’ve talked about previously. There’s not much new here as far as specs go, but at least the camera is being talked about.



  • 20MP or 24MP sensor with Dual Pixel CMOS AF

  • Auto-Focus system similar to the EOS 5D Mark III (61 points), possibly the same as 5D3

  • High frame rate, 10-12 fps

  • “high grade” weather sealing, like Canon’s professional DSLRs

  • Dual Digic V+ processor

  • Single card slot

  • WiFi & GPS

  • Innovative video features

  • Price around $2000

  • Very good ISO performance

Digic V+? Pfft!

Good.  Now release a 5D4 along with it with the same everything except sensor size, pixel density and frame rate.

I'll buy both together.

By the way dual card slots would be helpful.  I'd even tolerate both of them being SD to get that.

"Very good ISO performance"

Ahhh. Now I can rest easy  :)

That camera is called EOS 1Dx.


AF system similar or the same as the 5D would mean it would cover the hole frame - simply awesome but I only believe it when I see that.
7D - BG
3 Ls - 1 EF - 2 EF-s - 2 M42s
430EX II - YN560-III

Those are some mouthwaterin specs, if we'd had this about a year ago!  :P

Kidding, actually sounds badass. Dual digic 5+, new sensor with Dual AF, good ISO performance and some video tricks? Yes please!

I think it's prob not gonna be 24MP as that would make it the highest MP body in the line up. So 20 but with a different sensor than the 70D? Hmmm that could be interesting. And I'm intrigued by this ISO claim too.

About time we heard something relating to the mythical beast.

No, the 1DX does have fast frame rates which I'm willing to give up and it has that awful 1 series body which I will never buy or even consider.

The spec list on expected lines. Given that it is a CR1, you can give or take a few as you are comfortable.

I'd buy one with these spec at 2K if the high ISO performance was around two stops better than the current 7D - maybe I'm asking for much.
Light is language!

10-12 FPS and only one card slot?! And how can they have wifi/ gps? I thought they told us that is why some plastics were needed in the 6d/ 70d...

Given that this is a CR1, change of specs is likely


I would spent this amount of money on a 7D MKII with these specs.
I hope card slot will remain CF. Can we have another CF cardslot please? I guess that is only for the 1Dx
And, I will go for the 61-points AF, high grade weathersealing - just don't know how that goes with WiFi
And I do like the 10-12 fps. The 6fps on my 5D MKIII is great but here and there short of


And, most of all I like the better ISO performance. Yes, 2 stops improvement compared to the 7D would be great. However I suspect Canon may be conservative on this one.

Yes, I'm sure the IQ will take a big leap even if they pack 6 more MP onto that small 1.6x sensor....

I've always liked the *idea* of the 7D. Great body, nice features.
okish images....when the focus is consistent.

Is this simply a repost of yesterday's CW 7D MkII rumour, or has Craig heard anything independently? Am I the only person that's a touch suspicious about rumours of distant camera releases that amount to a list of desirable, yet plausible specifications? 

Scepticism aside, I wonder how Canon will be able to place a 7D MkII in its current product line? I find it surprising how many existing DSLR owners that I speak to (though obviously not those that frequent this forum!) believe that the 7D is full frame, presumably because all the other single-digit cameras are full frame.

I can't help thinking that with declining sales across the board there are too many cameras and too little real innovation in most manufacturers' line-ups. Perhaps it would be a good idea to make the 7D MkII the last conventional DSLR (at least in the APS-C range) and move towards a future without mirrors.

Oh, by the way Canon -it really is time to show the world some new generation sensor technology, or start outsourcing to a company that can!  ;)

Good grief.  EVFs are years, if not decades away from being usable in high-speed and/or low-light situations, plus we need a good factor of 4 increase in battery performance before we go that way.
