Consistent with the last round of rumors and speculation, new word over at Northlight Images points to the rumored 7D Mark II‘s place among sports and wildlife photographers thanks to a spicy 10 fps frame rate.
The 10 fps rate is seen as an important feature, along with many features derived from 1DX developments, particularly AF and lower light performance. Sensor size would be advertised as 21MP, but faster and less noisy than the 7D (25MP was apparently seen as not offering enough image quality). The 6D is aimed at a proportion of the 7D market, giving more flexibility in upping the 7Dmk2 specifications (and price). The current 7D will continue for some time and surplant the 60D, when the 700D comes along with increased specifications. -Northlight Images
Previously rumored specs include the following:
- 24.2mp APS-C Sensor
- 10.2 fps
- Dual DIGIC V
- Dual Card Slot
- New Ergonomic Design
- New Battery
A new spec list for the rumored 7D Mark II surfaced over at Canon Rumors. The tipster said that the 7D Mark II announcement would come near the end of February 2013 and pack an APS-C 24.2 MP sensor. [click to continue…]
With 2013 bearing down on us, it’s only natural for rumors of new cameras to start making their way to the surface. When the Canon 7D Mark II didn’t make an appearance at Photokina 2012 back in September, new rumors pointing toward 2013 started trickling out. And, again, the latest rumors point to an early 2013 announcement date for such a camera. [click to continue…]
Northlight Images received word that a Canon 7D Mark II is in the works for early 2013 – possibly at or around CES 2013. Rumored specs for the 7D Mark II include a frame rate of 10fps and an APS-C sensor of “no more” than 25MP.
Additionally, the current 7D may remain in the lineup (with a price drop) in lieu of a 70D to serve as a replacement for the 60D.
While Photokina came and went without the oft-rumored Canon 7D Mark II or 70D making an appearance, rumors are still kicking around about what the inevitable camera may actually become and when it will arrive. [click to continue…]
The latest rumors for the Canon 7D Mark II suggest a 24MP sensor. There’s no mention of sensor size though – with past rumors suggesting that a Canon 70D would fill the top APS-C spot in Canon’s lineup, while the 7D Mark II would become a low-end full frame camera.
The recent release of the Canon 7D firmware upgrade seems a bit at odds with such a release this fall; however, the original 7D is now 3 years old, which puts it in the range for a hardware update based on Canon’s history. [click to continue…]
