More EOS 7D Mark II Talk [CR1]
« on: June 16, 2014, 07:34:23 AM »

A bit more about the EOS 7D replacement made its way to us over the weekend. This time we’ve received a little bit of information about the viewfinder in the upcoming EOS 7D Mark II.


We’re told the viewfinder will have 100% coverage and a magnification of 1.15. We’re told the top plate has a noticeably bigger bump around the viewfinder than the current EOS 7D.


Everything we’re hearing about the camera is coming from new sources.


More to come…

This indicates the current 7D is 98%, but I think it's actually 100% at 1x magnification.

It's interesting that Canon in the past commented that a 100% viewfinder and pop up flash was unweildy and not a workable solution....looks like the 7DII with have both....lol!

So what is the point of greater than 1.0x magnification? Wouldn't that aggravate the perspective characteristics of ultra wides and long telephotos?

A hybrid viewfinder perhaps?  Or maybe the return of eye controlled autofocus?

tidbits of rumored info by "CR1" sources... 8) Is the small amount of rumored information a sign for a bigger innovative splash techwise? e.g. sensor?

?????

What does viewfinder magnification have to do with perspective?

Answer:  Nothing.

A larger viewfinder magnification means a larger (and slightly dimmer) viewfinder.  Nothing more.

At that point in time, was Canon talking about FF cameras or APS-C camreras?

... the current camera has 98% coverage and a 1.0x magnification. ...

Interesting.

Canon pages in US and Germany are always talking about "approximately 100%" coverage
see here
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras/eos_7d?selectedName=Specifications
and here
http://www.canon.de/For_Home/Product_Finder/Cameras/Digital_SLR/EOS_7D/index.aspx

I am a little bit surprised that Canon marketing would define some 2% coverage missing as inaccuracy and tolerance.
I do not own a 7D so I didn't recognize this but I'd expected some 99.xx% coverage fom "approximately 100%".
But maybe I am just an engineer with different understanding of technical values ;)

EOS 7D has 100% viewfinder coverage +/- minimal tolerance and 1.0x mag 

EOS 70D has 98% viewfinder coverage and .95x magnification.  ;)

I have corrected it, I was looking at the 70D line in my spreadsheet of specs.

thanks! And now some more juicy details please. Brilliantly working Eye Control AF v.2.0 would be the one feature that would make me pre-order it. Despite the fact it's stil a mirror-slapper.  ;D

If true, the 7D Mark II's viewfinder will be the exact same size as the 5D Mark III:

5D3 - 1.00 / 1.00 x 0.71 = 0.71
7D2 - 1.00 / 1.60 x 1.15 = 0.71

Crop sensor fans would be elated.

Without other changes, that would make it 2.56x dimmer (or, 39% as bright, if you prefer).
