The Canon 7D Mark II has successfully returned to become the main subject of the rumor mill, as even more specs and its price have been leaked on the web.
Canon’s upcoming flagship camera of the APS-C line is one of the most discussed devices of 2013. Usually, so much talks mean that a launch event is nearing, yet sources are claiming that the shooter will be released in 2014, instead of this year.
Canon 7D Mark II to feature 24.1-megapixel sensor
No matter when this device is coming on the market, a trusted source has leaked even more information about the camera. The new Canon 7D Mark II specs list includes a fresh 24.1-megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor and Dual DIGIC V processing engine, which can also be found in the EOS 70D.
The EOS 7D Mark II will have other aces up its sleeve over the 70D beside the megapixel bump, such as a 61-point autofocus system, up to 10fps in continuous mode, and two card slots, which will serve wildlife photographers well.
New Canon 7D Mark II specs list includes plenty of “video features”
Canon is said to be very focused on the 7D Mark II because the camera has a lot of demands to meet. Its predecessor, the 7D, has been very successful in competing against the Nikon D300S. This is why the new shooter will feature a superior build quality, just like the 5D Mark III.
Moreover, it will provide improved ISO performance, which will also be borrowed from the full frame 5D MK3. A 3.2-inch LCD screen with GPS and WiFi support will be added, too, alongside a lot of impressive “video features”.
Canon 7D Mark II price said to be $500 higher than the price of the original 7D at launch: $2,199
These specifications will come at a significant cost. The Canon 7D Mark II price is rumored to stand at $2,199, about $500 more than the 7D.
