Canon 7D Mark II to Be Aimed at Sports and Wildlife Shooters

Canon 7D Mark II Rumors

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
