7DII feature requests...
« on: September 19, 2012, 08:39:36 AM »
There is another CR thread which is hammering the 180th sync speed of the new 6D. Plenty of photographers don't care one way or the other, and others place a high value on fast sync speeds. Yes, HSS is an option, but often at such reduced power output to render it of little useful value.

Which brings me to the 7DII wishlist. (Yes I know a 7DII may never happen, but let's run with this...)
The smaller APS-C sensor makes it a simpler matter to manufacture a shutter with a higher sync speed.
Remember the 500th sync on the original 1D? It was a flawed camera in many ways, but that fast sync speed rocked.

Listen up Canon DSLR R&D team! How about genuine 500th sync for the 7DII? I'll personally visit Japan and give each one of you a big hug.

What do you want to see on a 7DII?

Just new APS-H sensor ;)

New sensor and old features from 7d means that we can have it for 2000$

Hopefully, the moderator will merge these redundant threads into one, or just delete the extras.  We don't need dozens of them.

Better hi-ISO noise handling, no banding, digic 5(s), usb3.0, a little more sensitive AF (EV -1.5?)
Otherwise it is good as it is :)

Edit: Oh, and dual CF slots...

I only hope for three things:
- a 1D X / 5D mkIII kind AF
- more megapixels
- less noise and more dynamic range

Perhaps I am just weird or married to my 580ex or something, but the thing I really could do without on my 7D is its pop-up flash. I would prefer a 7D Mark II without pop-up flash.

Its sensor should also become more effective. The 7D Mark II receiving sensor performance similar to a 1D Mark IV should be a good thing.

And yes, dual CF card slots for me, too.

Has to be a new sensor, preferably APS-H which would allow 24MP with larger pixel size + greater density than the current 7D has with just 18MP. Same or improved AF would be nice, as would dual memory card slots, and of course dual-DIGIC5+ chips (guaranteeing at least 10 shots per second), with a noticeable improvement in DR from 11.7 to 12.5 EV (DR is directly a function of Pixel Size so the 4.3 micron pixels in the 7D1 need to be bigger, so possibly a 24MP APS-H sensor that was 30mm x 20mm would give us a 5 micron pixel size whilst retaining a 1.2x crop). A new APS-H sensor (which was originally developed in mid-1990s to match the arrival of HD TV's) would go some way to improving 'shot' noise, then new processing power of the DIGIC5+ processors would obviously contribute by reducing 'read' noise, as well as boosting ISO performance by 1-2 stops. It is not simply that bigger sensors & more MP = higher noise, the Nikon D800 disproves this theory. More pixels on a bigger sensor with better quantum efficiency + better algorithms/processing power = improved IQ

  • Better AF, including f/8 center
  • Better pixels (18M is fine for me, but less noise & higher ISO would be really nice!)
  • WiFi and GPS (from the 6D feature list)
  • Keep the CF card, please! Two would be great, but I don't want to change to SDs!  :)

20MP in an APS-C sized sensor = pixel pitch of just 4 microns = Canon PowerShot!

The rest of your specs (incl. price) = Canon 5D Mark III

i'm fine with that ;) i don't want a body like the one of the 1D serie...

but i forget to mention a pop up flash ;)

Must have MFA.
Center focus point like 5D3 otherwise the same as the 7D
Touch screen.
Burst rate like the 7D on the updated firmware.
APS-C sensor, 18MP fine
Improved High iso performace

Whatever you get (if you ever get it) will not satisfy the guys on here. Or it'll be too expensive for what's on offer.

Less noise/better image quality.

That's it!
