So the rumors are starting to flow now, and this is always exciting. I use a Canon 7D as my primary camera and i absolutely love it. I love the high speed shutter of the dual digic IV processor. But the rumoured specs look pretty awesome and I would really be interested to see the actual performance of this camera, IF the specs are accurate.
Rumoured Specifications of the Canon 7D Mark II
- 24.1mp APS-C Sensor
- Dual DIGIC V
- Dual Memory Card Slots (Unknown configuration)
- 61 AF Points (I wonder if we’ll get red focus points in AIS?)
- 3.2″ LCD
- Build quality like 5D3
- GPS & Wifi
- $2199 ($500 more than the 7D at launch, I’d like to see such a camera come in under $2000)
- ISO Performance to get close to the 5D3
- “Lots of video features”
Over all I would definitely look at this camera seriously, as the specs (if accurate) look to be right up my ally. Super fast, GPS and Wifi all features that i would like to see in my next camera. But i would probably wait until the price drops a little.
