Canon EOS-7D Mk II Prototype Camera

The Canon EOS-7D Mk II prototype camera was apparently spotted out in the field. The speculation of the specifications are as follows :

  • 21 MP APS-C sensor
  • ISO 100 - 25600 (L : 50, H1 : 51200, H2 : 102400)
  • 10 fps burst rate
  • Video mode 30 / 60 fps
  • Full HD video with manual control
  • Single CF Card Slot
  • 19 all-cross type AF points
  • On chip phase detect pixels for liveview and AF tracking
  • 100% Viewfinder
  • LCD viewfinder with 1.04 million dots
  • 3.2″ LCD screen
  • GPS, WiFi
  • Heavier alloy body with improved weather sealing

If it turns out to be mostly accurate, it is not far from my earlier post on the upcoming EOS-7D Mk II specs. I hope the camera will come with 2 memory card slots and the GPS and WiFi will not be part of the features, especially in light of the vulnerability of WiFi enabled cameras. See my post on this subject. It is not unusual for Canon to have different prototype models for field testing. More rumors and information should leak out as the launch date for the much anticipated replacement to the EOS-7D camera approaches.
