Are These The EOS 7D Mark II Specifications?
« on: August 22, 2014, 02:40:34 PM »

Updated on August 28, 2014

Updates and clarifications on the specifications are in bold below.


We think we have the specifications for the upcoming Canon EOS 7D Mark II, we’re trying to authenticate things down to the CR3 level. We have been incorrect about previous features of the camera. For one, the top plate is not an “EOS-1 Style”, and the camera does not shoot 12fps. Previous sources have said the sensor does have new technology, but it is not multi-layer, which is what we originally reported. We have been thrown off by patents showing layered sensors. We can’t confirm at this time if there is indeed new technology in the sensor. Our source for this specification list just mentions the megapixel count.


Canon EOS 7D Mark II Specifications



  • Kit lenses: 18-135 IS STM and 15-85 IS (no STM)

  • CF, UDMA mode 7 + SD, UHS-I

  • GPS is in the camera

  • No WiFi

  • Fixed LCD, with no touch function.

  • 20.2MP APS-C Sensor

  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF

  • Dual DIGIC 6 Processors

  • 65 AF points “All Cross-type”. Dual cross on the center point.

  • f/8 on center point at least, could be on more points.

  • 10fps

  • ISO 100-12800, ISO Boost mode 25600 and 51200

  • 1080p/720p both get 60fps

  • Servo AF for video shooting.

  • Anti-flicker mode, eliminates flickers under flickering lights (e.g. fluorescent lamps).

  • Spot metering size 1.8%

  • Built-in flash

  • Mic and headphones connectors

  • Can sync time between 7D II cameras.

  • Lens electronic MF

  • About 100% coverage OVF

  • New Battery – LP-E6N

  • New Battery Grip BG-E16


I stress I am trying to confirm everything above, and once I do I will update the rating on these specifications. I am 90% confident these are accurate EOS 7D Mark II specifications.

Oh no, where are the huge number of DR stops...I must switch to something else

Looks great!

“Fine Detail” CMOS  Sensor : this sounds like no/weak AA filter to me!

Hmm, very interesting. The first thing that pops out at me is the 65 AF pints "All Cross Type". That is really impressive! I never expected that...I figured it would be closer to 41 AF points.

Bummed a bit about the mixed use of CF and SD. I really wish Canon would stop doing that...dual cards of different types are useless...I'd much rather have dual CF so I wouldn't experience any speed discrepancies.

I'm not surprised by 10fps...it seemed a bit far fetched that the camera would get 12fps. Canon has to keep some things "premium", it makes sense to keep the fastest frame rates locked to the 1D line. I'm also not surprised about Dual DIGIC 6...although I had hoped for DIGIC 7 along wit a real high resolution, high DR sensor.

Regarding the sensor...very disappointing. Sounds like a re-purposed 70D sensor with a DPAF improvement. I was REALLY, REALLY hoping Canon would really show something impressive on the sensor front with the 7D II. If the camera really does hit the streets with a 20mp sensor, I fully expect it to have the same DR limitations as all of Canon's previous sensors. Extremely disappointing.  :'( Guess we'll have to wait for the 5D IV to see if Canon can actually step up their sensor IQ game or not...which is just...so far down the road...Bleh.

Also worried about the "fine detail"...I really don't want them to start removing AA filters. That is just a dumb trend that photographers like simply because they do not understand the value of an AA filter, or the ease by which AA softening can be sharpened.

So how confident is CR that this new camera will be called "7D Mark II"?

Sounds like a good camera on paper - only interested in one thing though and that is high ISO performance.

ISO 16000?  When have they ever limited out at a place between 1 full stop increments from 100?

No AA filter = artifact city.  I hope it has an effective AA filter.

65 AF points “All Cross-type”. Dual cross on the center point.

I'd like to know how many of those are f/8 AF points.

Could somebody please explain to me what this is?

Lens electronic MF

Does this mean I can rotate a dial on the body to do manual focusing?
What would that be useful for?

Overall this seems less exciting than the previous rumors.

A bit disappointed at lack of GPS, but 65 AF points might make up for that :)   I'm not sure what the sensor information means; like CR, I need more info.

If these are indeed the specs, I'd only be interested sub $2k; at the previously speculated 2199 it's a non-starter (for me) with no GPS.

I'd also like to know if it has 1:1 crop mode in video (or, an even better implementation of that).

I interpreted it as automatic micro focus adjustment, but I could be way off.
