Canon 7D

It’s been a pretty busy week with rumors and speculation about the Canon 7D flying all over the place.

Tuesday, September 1 appears to be the announcement date for the Canon 7D. [via Kamera & Bild]

Other tips suggest some features for the Canon 7D:

  • HD video
  • Flip screen
  • Weather sealing commensurate with the 5D Mark II
  • Pro level AF
  • Improved Live AF
  • Target toward sports, bird and wildlife photographers
  • Sports and wildlife photographers may have already been testing it
  • A step up for 40D/50D-series users

Other Canon 7D specs claimed to be very reliable:

  • Dual DIGIC 4
  • Built-in flash master
  • Full HD video
  • APS-C (1.6 Crop)
  • Non-articulating LCD

Need bigger sensor, the best choice would be APS-H with 12mpix

Weather sealing commensurate with the 5D II. The Antarctic expedition with Michael Reichmann comes to mind.

If no full frame then time to go nikon.

Full frame is always nice but good photographers work with what they are comfortable with, that is the difference between amateurs and professionals.
