what do you want to see 7D Mark III
« on: August 03, 2017, 10:13:55 PM »
My wish list includes

- Better AF, on part or better than 1Dx M2.  Find the 7D M2 does not AF as well as the 1Dx M2 (could be operator error).
- F8 AF on all or at least many points
- Two body options.   Body with detached grip (like current) and body w/ integrated grip (similar to the 1Dx M2)
- 10-12 FPS
- I guess 4K video though shoot video < 1% of the time.
- 24 MP
- Low light/High ISO better than current 7D M2 [note: corrected from overly optimistic goal of 1Dx M2]  by 1-2 stops
- Cfast and CF card though I suspect we will get Cfast and SD - though with an integrated grip CFast and CF would be possible
- MLU similar to 5DS (option to wait between 0.5 - 2 seconds and then expose sensor)

In this list the only unlikely items are integrated grip (current form factor will remain with an optional grip) and hence no CFast and CF card combination

Anyone else care to share their "realistic" thoughts on what you hope to see in the 7D M3.

Wish list or anticipated features?

Expected:

Touch Screen,
WiFi, Blue Tooth, NFC,
Incremental improvements in autofocus,
Incremental increase in frame rate,
Incremental improvements in weather sealing,
Increased MP count -- hoping for no more than 26-28,
On Chip ADC,
Multiple f8 focus points.

Possible:

CFast and CF card slots

Hoping For:

Improvements in noise control (I would expect that a half a stop would be about the maximum).

good point.  Perhaps 1-2 stops better than current?

main topics from my side (having 7D2 and EOSM5)


  • Sensor of M5 or better
  • full display autofocus area
  • touch display
  • wifi & bluetooth & NFC
  • articulated screen
  • 4kVideo/60Hz h.265
Not that much...

OK you basically want everything. But you describe a 6 or 8K euro/dollar/pound camera.

The comparison with the full frame 1DxMkII is so highly unrealistic. Or you are describing Canon 7DMkVI  ;D

More down to earth are these:

- Better AF,
- F8 AF on all
- 10-12 FPS
- 24 MP
- Low light/High ISO better than current 7D M2  by (hopefully) 1 stop
- MLU similar to 5DS (option to wait between 0.5 - 2 seconds and then expose sensor)
- Touch Screen
- Wifi in addition to GPS

There is actually no reason for the very CFAST card. I do not think they will have 4K/60p. CF and SD are OK ( SD UHS-II support would be nice)

For me it's a better image quality in the end. I don't find the image as clear as it should be especially as ISO goes up. I always feel it's lacking. I don't expect it to be as good as full frame but much better.
12 FPS would be good. I'm not a fan of the 7DII / 5DSR sensor. At the time too many pixels crammed in.

Less noise.  A bit of accuracy improvement in AF.  Other than that I am good

Have you tested 5DsR and 7DII or 7DII only? I thought the same for 5DsR until I bought it. It's IQ is better than 7DII in low ISO (at least up to 1000).

A FF sensor at a cropped price!   ::)

Smaller and lighter without sacrificing weather sealing and build.

I'd keep your feet on the ground. 

It will likely just be a 7D2 with a little more.  A new sensor + 2 more fps + larger buffer + (more or less) the 1DX2 AF system + touchscreen + 4K.  Done.

It doesn't need to melt faces, it needs to be fast, focus well, etc.  Some folks scream about on-chip ADC with this rig -- and it probably will get it -- but I'm not sure the not-living-at-base-ISO birding/wildlife community needs it or the soccer mom / football dad that buys this even knows what DR is.

...tilty-flippy, DPAF are another couple of items I would add to your list ;)

Forgot tilty-flippy.  I'd call that a 50-50 chance on a punishing in-the-field camera like this.  (Not arguing against it, I'd want one myself.)

But the 7D2 already has DPAF -- it just doesn't have a touchscreen to make it sing right now.
