Canon Supercharges Photokina with EOS 7D Mark II Release


Okay, it seems Canon has read my mind and updated the EOS 7D in the areas mentioned in my earlier post – video and FPS. I’ve read copious comments regarding the lack of 4K video and wifi but those are not reasons that make or break the sale of the camera in my perspective. Actually, I like that there is no wifi and 1080p works perfectly for my video needs. My only concern is this update addresses the moire issue seen with the earlier version.

The specs of this camera seem quite impressive:

20.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors
3.0″ 1.04m-Dot Clear View II LCD Monitor
Full HD 1080p/60 Video & Movie Servo AF
Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Live View
65-Point All Cross-Type AF System
Native ISO 16000, Extended to ISO 51200
Continuous 10 fps Shooting
Magnesium Alloy Body, Built-In GPS
Maximum shutter speed: 1/8000th sec
Max sync speed: 1/250 sec
Built in intervalometer.

This update fulfills my photography needs at this time without extra bells and whistles, allowing me to continue on my photography journey without breaking my budget. I can’t wait to create photos with this camera!

Canon has released a short video highlighting the work of Mark Horsburgh, who puts the new Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera to a sports photography test in Queenstown, NZ.

I’ve pre-ordered this camera from Canon and it will be shipped in November and will post a review of my impressions of this camera on the blog at that time. You can check out more specs and pre-order this camera HERE. For comparison, my current Canon dSLR is the Canon Rebel EOS T1I. Please don’t judge or laugh out loud…
