Rumored Specifications for Upcoming Canon 7D Mk II
By Joseph Tepper, February 20, 2013 @ 06:00 AM (EST)


The rumor mill is spinning around possible specifications for the upcoming Canon 7D Mark II DSLR.

Various sources believe the camera will be announced in the summer months with a near-immediate release. The camera is expected to be a “mini” EOS-1D X with a smaller body, few less features, less weather sealing and a lower price point than the flagship DSLR. Here’s a list of speculated specifications:


  • 24.1mp APS-C Sensor
  • Dual DIGIC V
  • 10fps
  • 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


Stay tuned to DPG—we’ll have more details as they become available and the release as soon as it comes out.
