A Rundown of EOS 7D Mark II Information
« on: August 15, 2014, 07:55:22 AM »

There’s not a lot being said about the upcoming DSLR from Canon. We’re getting little bits of information, and what we’re getting is going to be true. However, Canon Japan has been very proactive in stopping leaks within the various subsidiaries of Canon Inc. We, and others have been told that some past reviewers and journalists have been left out of the loop this go around. Canon seems to be taking leaks a lot more seriously than Sony and Nikon, who in my opinion, leak stuff themselves.


This is a small rundown of what we know and can publish about the EOS 7D Mark II (If that’s what it’s called).



  • Full metal body (EOS-1 build quality)

  • EOS-1 style top plate

  • New sensor technology (multi layer)

  • No Wifi built-in

  • Not touch screen, super durable LCD cover

  • 12fps shooting (or faster)

  • Dual Pixel AF

  • New AF system


This will probably turn out to be Canon’s best specced camera ever. We’re also told, that just like the EOS 5D Mark III launch. This camera should be available pretty soon after the announcement.


Another major US retailer confirmed to us that the EOS 7D is discontinued. They have been told to remove their display models of the camera and that no more would be available to order. This follows Amazon listing the camera as discontinued.


If you have any more information about the camera, or any of Canon’s other coming products. You can mail us anonymously here.

hmm would a multi-layer sensor AND dual pixel make sense together?

I don't know about the layered sensor or the 12fps but it is speced better than the 61 af point, 24mp, 10fps body I'd like to see. Soon all will be revealed....

If this comes at a reasonable price (whatever that is... 2-2.5k maybe?) it will be hard to resist very long. I did not plan to upgrade my current 7D but the specs look promising.

I hope they slap out that 100-400 II along with it finally....
7D - BG
3 Ls - 2 EF - 2 EF-s - 2 M42s

what we know and can publish

I think it's what you can't publish we are all interested in!  ;D


But that is one heck of a spec list, let the hype go hyper  ;)

New sensor technology (multi layer)

Wow...this is huge if Canon can do what Foveon/Sigma could not (build a multi-layer sensor with good color separation and low noise at high ISO).

AA filter?  Hope so.

I'll believe it when I see it, but I'm hopeful.

man, if half of that spec list comes true, and the launch price is $2k or less, I'm going to have a hard time waiting for refurbs to show up...

The pop-up flash on the 7D is really important to me as an external flash controller, but it's pretty useless for anything else so I'd gladly swap it for the built-in ability to control RT flashes. I don't think that has been rumoured, but it would be a logical step and very welcome.

With the few rumored specs here this may be top of the line camera with an APS-C sensor that will target semi-pro and pro. My expectation is that the price will be in the same league as the 5D MKIII at launch.

New sensor technology in a pro camera? Sounds risky to me.

Isn't customary for Canon to first release new tech, e.g. DPAF, in lower series bodies?

I still can't see having no wifi or touchscreen. Canon has always been great with the user interface and this seems like a step backwards from the 70D.....

Sounds like Canon is coming out with a pretty good body.  Good on em!
