EOSHD posted a list of supposed specs of the successor of the Canon EOS 7D (price & specs). The specs appear to have been mentioned during Panasonic’s presentation of the GH4.
The specs are different from previously rumored specs:
- 20MP sensor
- ISO 100-12,800 (25600 extended)
- 1/8000 shutter
- Quiet shutter mode
- Phase detect AF, 19 area
- 8fps continuous shooting
- Buffer size – 15 raw, 126 JPEG
- 3.0″ 1040k dot LCD (touch screen) – not articulated
- Weather sealed (as original 7D)
- 910g weight
Hmm, same old AF system? Only 8 fps? No WiFi?
The rumor also suggests that the replacement for the EOS 7D is “in the hands of a very elite few pros at the Sochi Winter Olympics in Russia, along with the Nikon D4S“.
For the time being it is not even sure that the 7D successor will be named EOS 7D Mark II
