More information about the Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR camera has been leaked on the web, once again hinting that the device will sport a new image sensor technology based on multiple layers of pixels.
As the 7D is getting discontinued by retailers all around the world, its replacement is getting nearer and nearer. New Canon EOS 7D Mark II specs have showed up online in order to confirm some information which has been around for a long time.
Among the things that we can expect from the 7D successor, we can find a multilayered sensor and a very rugged construction.
Canon 7D successor will feature a very durable EOS-1-like body
Canon’s upcoming flagship APS-C DSLR will sport a body made entirely out of metal. Its construction will have of a very high quality, which will remind users of the original EOS-1 SLR camera. EOS-1 similarities continue with a restyled top place that will be completely flat.
The company realizes that professional photographers are the main target for the 7D Mark II, who will test the device to its limits, so the device needs to be able to withstand whatever it is being thrown at it.
Keeping this in mind, the DSLR will not sport a touchscreen. Instead, Canon has chosen a regular LCD with a “super durable cover”
Additionally, the metal construction will prevent good WiFi performance, so the manufacturer has chosen to remove the WiFi altogether.
Preliminary Canon EOS 7D Mark II specs list hints at multilayered sensor and 12fps burst mode
The key aspect of the DSLR will consist of its new image sensor technology. Sources appear confident that the company will add a multilayer-based sensor into the 7D’s replacement, but it remains to be determined whether it offers about 24 megapixels or more.
Action and wildlife photographers will appreciate the 12fps or faster continuous shooting mode found in the Canon 7D Mark II, which is right there along top full frame DSLRs.
Furthermore, all users will enjoy a brand new autofocus system, which will be joined by a version of the Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology introduced in the EOS 70D
The aforementioned information has been heard before, but it is always great to get further confirmation.
Unfortunately for industry watchers, Canon has done a fine job at keeping things under the carpet, so a more detailed specs list might only be leaked very close to its announcement date, which is said to take place on September 5. Until then, stay tuned!
