Retailers have dropped the Canon 7D price, amid rumors that the DSLR camera will be replaced by the 7D Mark II sometime in the following months.
Sooner or later it was bound to happen. The Canon 7D price has just been decreased at major retailers in the US, while the same thing is believed to occur in other markets over the following days.
This action comes after months of intensive speculation about the DSLR camera’s replacement, the EOS 7D Mark II, which should become official in time for world’s largest digital imaging event, the Photokina 2014, which begins in mid-September.
Canon 7D price goes down amid intensive 7D Mark II rumors
The price of the Canon EOS 7D has been standing at around the $1,300 mark for a long time. Usually, when a device is about to be replaced by a newer model, its valuation depreciates.
As stated above, the news comes at a time when Canon 7D Mark II rumors have intensified. Coupled with the price reduction, it becomes ever more obvious that the company is launching a new flagship APS-C DSLR camera soon.
Canon EOS 7D Mark II coming soon with revolutionary features
The rumor mill is somewhat divided when it comes to the announcement date of the EOS 7D Mark II. There are sources claiming that the device will be revealed by the end of August, while others are saying that the DSLR will be introduced during the week prior to the start of the Photokina 2014.
There are few certainties at this point. One of them is that all gossipers are agreeing that the Canon 7D successor will be a revolutionary camera with lots of exciting new features.
A new sensor technology will be unveiled along with the second-generation Dual Pixel CMOS AF system and many other videography tools.
Canon 7D Mark II’s image sensor will offer a high megapixel count
The sensor of the Canon 7D Mark II has generated a lot of buzz on the internet. For a long time, it has been speculated that we may be facing a Foveon-like multi-layered sensor. However, it seems like this is no longer the case, as the DSLR will employ a regular sensor with a high megapixel count.
As usual, these are just rumors talks. The only thing that is certain is that the Canon 7D price has just been decreased and you can buy an amazing camera at a very good price.
