More specs have surfaced for the upcoming Canon 7D Mark II. Keith over at Northlight received a tip that the 7D Mark II will use a derivative of the Dual Pixel AF sensor from the Canon 70D that is optimized for high speed readout and video quality.
However, the video quality will be limited in order not to exceed what users get out of the Canon C100 and other EOS Cinema cameras. Of course, we’ve seen this recently with RAW video being unlocked in the Canon 5D Mark III and other Canon HDSLRs. So, this comes as no real surprise.
Additional specs include:
- 12 FPS possible – target is 10
- Video quality – ‘limited by marketing’
- ISO 100-25600
- ‘New’ AF system
Release date is still being touted as sometime in 2014.
