Another Canon EOS 7D Mark II rumor surfaced on the web. It says that the 7D II will sport a sensor that is a derivative of the sensor featured on the Canon EOS 70D. Same Dual Pixel CMOS AF but the sensor is optimized for higher signal transmission speed and video image quality. Not much has changed for the murmured specs:
- ~20MP APS C
- 12 FPS possible – target is 10
- Video quality – ‘limited by marketing’
- ISO 100-25600
- ‘New’ AF system
The final specs will be set after Canon has seen how the EOS 70D is accepted from customers/the market. The rumor also states that the sensor of the 7D II could easily beat the C100 and C500, but will be crippled down to not do so. Announcement date is still said to be in 2014.
