First Super-Basic Specs Of A Possible EOS 7D Mark II Surface

EOS 7D Mark II

Fake EOS 7D Mark II (mock-up)

That the replacement for the EOS 7D would be a pro-level APS-C camera is clear since long. Whatever Canon is going to announce at the end of August, it will be Canon’s next APS-C flagship.

A few supposed specs surfaced on the web, partly already rumored:

- EOS-1 style top plate, which means no mode dial
– Pop-up flash, even with the new style top plate
– WiFi & GPS will be internal

WiFi and GPS are long rumored specs. I have been told to expect an announcement before the end of August, possibly in the third week of August.

Stay tuned.
