Canon 7D Mark II

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.

Canon 7D Magic Lantern

The Canon 7D has been a tough nut to crack for the Magic Lantern firmware crew.  After 3 years in the process, they finally had a breakthrough and figured out how to run Magic Lantern as add-on software on the 7D.

Check out the video below for a demo of Magic Lantern running on the 7D.

The Magic Lantern team is currently working on the debug process to get the firmware in a state for release.  You can read more and donate to the cause here at Magic Lantern’s website.
