Canon EOS-7D Mark II Camera Studio Version

Canon announced a one-off, Studio Version of its EOS 7D camera in 2010. It enabled embedding of barcode details in the EXIF information of images taken with the camera via a specially modified WFT-E5A Wireless File Transmitter.

Apparently, Canon has also developed a Studio Version of the EOS 7D Mark II. The video below talks about its capabilities when paired with a WFT-E7A. Canon USA Technical Advisor Mike Gurley talks about the overview of the EOS 7D Mark II SV Studio Version with a barcode solution. He goes over key camera features and discusses how the camera can be used for different workflows in event photography. Mike also shows how to set up the camera to sync with a compatible barcode scanner. As you can see, the Studio Version has a identification label on the battery door.

My readers know I have picked the Canon EOS-7D as the best APS-C camera for wildlife photography four years in a row. The EOS-7D Mark II has been my favorite cropped frame body for wildlife photo shoots for over two years now and is an excellent value. I expect Canon to release a major firmware (perhaps late 2016) to counter the recently released Nikon D500 camera.
