Canon press release:
|Canon and WWF share results of research into the impact of climate change in the Arctic|
|LONDON, 3rd September 2014 – Canon Europe, world leader in imaging solutions, and WWF International have released findings from two of their research programmes recording the state of the environment and climate change in the Arctic. As part of its role as Conservation Imaging Partner, Canon sponsored WWF International’s recent scientific expeditions to the islands of Svalbard (April 2014), near Norway, and Laptev Sea in Russia (August 2013).|
|The WWF-Canon & Norwegian Polar Institute’s expedition to Svalbard this year aimed to collect critical data about Europe’s most westerly polar bear population and how the locations of their dens for giving birth are changing. Just three of the 29 adult females encountered by the research team had a cub born that year. Although the researchers cautioned against reading too much into that fact, it is known that in other parts of the Arctic, disappearing sea ice is affecting the bears’ reproductive success.|
Will The Canon EOS 7D Mark II Feature A Full-Frame Sensor? (GPS seems confirmed, UPDATE: FF was typo))
The glorious Canon EOS 7D – to be replaced soon
Update: Mr. Klostermann, the author of the cited book, contacted me and explained it was just a placeholder text. The text has now been corrected and there is no longer any mention of “full-frame”.
Thanks to readers, I learned about 2 more EOS 7D Mark II books (after this book) that showed up at retailers. There is the “Canon 7D Mk II Experience” and a French book about the 7D Mark II. The latter looking more like a placeholder, the former having a curious description.
The description of “Canon 7D Mk II Experience” (by D.J. Klostermann) starts with the following sentence: “Take control of your Canon 7D Mark II full frame dSLR and the images you create“. Just a typo of the editor/author or a serious hint that the Canon EOS 7D Mark II will sport a full-frame sensor??
Moreover, the author explicitly points to an “introduction to the set-up and use of the camera’s built-in GPS, to geotag and map your photos“. GPS appears to be definitely on board of the EOS 7D Mark II, since it was already rumored previously.
