Rumor: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Release Postponed To 2014?

7D Mark II

A new, not-so-funny rumor concerning the Canon EOS 7D Mark II, the anticipated successor of the Canon EOS 7D (price & specs), surfaced on the web. It is now murmured that Canon will not release the EOS 7D Mark II during 2013. There could be an announcement, but 7D Mark II will be released no earlier than 2014. If true, it means that we will see only the announcement (and hopefully) release of the Canon EOS 70D this year. Not good news for all those who are looking forward to replace the 3 year old EOS 7D, or are waiting to get the new iteration of the 7D.

However, there could be several lenses that will get announced during 2013.

PRESS RELEASE: MISSISSAUGA, ON, 17 April 2013 – Canon Canada Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions celebrating its 40th anniversary, announced today the launch of the Northern Explorers of Light program and its accompanying website The Northern Explorers of Light are a prestigious group of seven Canadian imaging professionals who serve as ambassadors for the Canon brand and share their photographic passions and technical expertise with aspiring photographers.

The Northern Explorers of Light program is an extension of Canon USA’s popular Explorers of Light program, created in the mid-1990s. The new Northern members join the ranks of more than 50 Explorers whose specialties and styles span a wide range of photographic disciplines including photojournalism, travel and wildlife photography, portraiture, and television and film production. The Explorers’ use of Canon EOS photographic equipment allows them to capture stunning images in unrivalled clarity and detail. Many Explorers also use Canon’s large format printers and high-resolution REALiS projectors to produce and display their art. The Northern Explorers of Light will share their knowledge and enthusiasm with Canadians through workshops, speaking engagements, appearances at industry events, and social media outreach.

The Northern Explorers of Light are some of the most gifted and influential imaging professionals in Canada,” said Ian Macfarlane, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group and Market Development Group, Canon Canada. “This program provides a unique resource for creativity and inspiration among photo enthusiasts, giving them access to the unsurpassed talent and skill of Canada’s elite photographers, and allowing them to improve their own techniques.”

The seven Northern Explorers of Light are:

Todd Korol Calgary, AB
John Lehmann  Vancouver, British Columbia.
Patrick Nichols – Toronto, ON
• Camille Fortin Bensler and Chadwick Bensler (JONETSU STUDIOS) – Vancouver, BC
Ed O’Neil – Toronto, ON
Christopher Dodds – Huntingdon, Quebec.

To support the program, Canon Canada is also launching, the online home of the Northern Explorers of Light and a forum for interactive discovery and discussion about photography. Targeted to curious and aspiring photographers and cinematographers, the site showcases the Northern Explorers and the tools they use to produce their work. Visitors can browse photo galleries and read articles written by the Northern Explorers about the stories behind some of their most iconic images. The site also features technical information about the professional Canon EOS equipment used to capture and display the photos and videos.
