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…]
Northlight Images has received some new information concerning a cheaper full frame Canon DSLR. Rumors suggest either an 18MP sensor or a 22MP sensor, which leads to further speculation of a repurposed Canon 1D X or Canon 5D Mark III sensor, respectively.
Additional specs make the new model look a lot more like a full frame iteration of the Canon 7D, as opposed to the 5D Mark III. A smaller overall body design with a built-in flash would make it more of a prosumer design.
Other rumored features are as follows: [click to continue…]
After the leaky Nikon D600 made its recent waves, rumors of the next generation of the Canon 7D emerged as its potential as a full-frame shooter on the lower end of Canon’s arsenal.
Additional rumors suggest that a Canon 70D would serve as a replacement for both the existing 60D and 7D APS-C models – thus making the 70D the top tier APS-C camera from Canon.
No other specs seem to have emerged in the rumor mill thus far. Both cameras are rumored for an announcement around Photokina 2012 in September.
