Canon 7D Mark II Embargo Ending September 5?

Canon 7D Mark II Rumors

UPDATE: Canon 7D Mark II Officially Announced!

New rumors suggest that the announcement of a replacement for the Canon 7D may come on Friday, September 5, 2014, which is a week and a half before Photokina 2014 kicks off. We continue to see steep discounts on the original 7D.

There are still several spec rumors floating around for the 7D Mark II (or whatever it will be called) and nothing is really getting trimmed down yet. One solid spec seems to be the EOS 1D X-styled top plate with no Mode dial. Resolution has been rumored between 20-24MP and “advanced” video features have been consistently rumored as well.

If you have any details about the upcoming camera, let us know.

    I’m betting on set 1 although neither of those look like it will be great for video. I’m guessing 1080p at 60fps with the faster processor but I’m doubting any other big change…maybe dual pixel AF.

    It doesn’t look like Canon is yet trying to compete in the video market with cameras like the GH4 or A7s. Of course why would they want to take away sales from the 1DC which costs $12,000. Who cares that Sony gives you better for $2500 in the A7s

    canon is no longer a leader in the prosumer market and they pretty much suck at following as evidenced by their miserable mirrorless entry. that said, i have the 7d but I am not expecting to stay with canon. we’ll see…

    Whatever the specs this camera needs to be the best apsc csmera ever released or Canons reign will start to fall.
