Update on the EOS 7D Mark II Spec List
« on: August 23, 2014, 07:05:47 AM »

We’re going over the information we have and have noticed a few inconsistencies that we’d like to mention. We have a bit of doubt about the sensor spec we’ve listed for the camera and will work to confirm that. There is a possibility that it’s an all new 20.2MP sensor and not the same one as the EOS 70D.



  • We’re not 100% sure about GPS, we think the camera may actually have it.

  • We mentioned radio triggering with the popup flash, but that may have been a mistake.

  • “Fine Detail CMOS Sensor” is standard Canon language for Canon sensors.

  • The camera has iTR (metering sensor-assisted servo tracking) just like the EOS-1D X

  • The camera should be compatible with f/8 lenses at the center, and maybe more points.


Lots more to come….

Makes sense.
I am pretty sure the camera will have Wifi and GPS.

I'm 99% sure the camera will not have wifi built-in.

That will disappoint many.
I will be happy if its IQ is close to and AF is same as my 5DIII.

What I find interesting is having an RT  flash trigger and not having WiFi. They both use the same band and if the antenna works for one, it works for the other.....  It just seems wrong to me.....

But the update says it won't have RT flash trigger.

f/8 center point! Usable 1.4x (for f/5.6 lens) and 2x (for f/4 lens) teleconverters!
I am having a little fun watching the rumors and fantasizing, though the 60D sitting next to my computer may feel a bit threatened. (Sensor filter surgery planned for some future date - Astro extended range H band sensitive, or full spectrum?).

I'm sure canon will produce a stellar camera on all features except sensor. It's possible that the sensor is something new and revolutionary, but this is te one piece that really matters. This could either be a game changer like I believe the 5d3 was... Or it could just be a hyped up 70d. I'm hoping for the former, as I am looking for a great camera to pair with my current 5d3.  8)

24MP is better.  6000x4000 pixels just works better with my sense of mathematical beauty!

Come on, Canon, I'm tired of 3504 and 4368 pixel sensors.  Heck, my compacts are 4000x3000!

What about a hybrid viewfinder for video?  What about variable windowing or at least 1:1 crop more in video?

Nope.

I'd be as happy as a clam to have this camera built round the 70D's sensor (which despite all the general whining about "crappy" Canon sensors, produces excellent quality files for this wildlife/sport photographer - exactly the target audience for the new camera).

Hello,
first of all, I take my Pictures with 5D MKII and MK III and owner of 7 L-lenses. During the last 2 years I did an update of my Equipment for more than 15.000 € now. Two years ago I considered to change to Nikon due to the innovations they presented with e.g. D800 or D800E especially the high resolution of the sensors. This based on the fact that I sell my pictures as prints and build up a Business with stock photos. Aside the Picture itself the technical data and expected resolutions continuously rising. At that time I thought Canon will follow Nikon and Sony and also be more innovativ.

Today I´m angry about my decision. The reasons are:
- No high resolution sensors with a quality like Nikon
- Arrogance of Canon in their behaviour with their Clients
- Price policy for new II-lenses

The high resolution and the quality of Nikon and Sony shows that this is not a game and that
high resolutions doesn´t mean low quality at low light Images.

Fact is that I will check again how much I will get for my current Canon Equipment and than I will decide if
to switchover to Nikon
