Another Tidbit About An EOS 7D Replacement With Hybrid Viewfinder

EOS 7D Replacement

I reported about a possible new Canon EOS 7D (price & specs) replacement with a hybrid viewfinder before. Now another bit of information showed up on the web suggesting Canon’s next APS-C flagship might feature a hybrid viewfinder. While the rumor I am reporting here suggests that the hybrid viewfinder may not make into the final production model, I have been told that it will.

Some news on the specs front too: a sensor just below 25MP (24MP are rumored), dual card slots (SD + CF), and the 7D replacement is said “to have the most features at the software level of any Canon DSLR ever”. That fits with  earlier rumors, especially with those suggesting the 7D replacement will have innovative video features.

Take all with a grain of salt. The rumors concerning the EOS 7D replacement are somewhat contradicting, and so far nothing is sure. Not even the announcement date, which, seconding the latest rumors, should be somewhen during Q2 2014.

Canon DSLR Announcement For NAB 2014 (7D replacement on its way)?

Canon DSLR Announcement

Rumor has it that Canon may announce new DSLR gear for NAB 2014. The NAB show is usually the stage where  Cinema EOS and other videography gear is presented. So the question is: can we expect the EOS 7D replacement to be announced for NAB 2014?

The successor of the Canon EOS 7D (price & specs) is said to have outstanding video features, and it is rumored to be announced before end of Q2 2014. While it is true that NAB is mainly for the professional videographers out there, I wouldn’t exclude Canon could use the show to present their new APS-C flagship to the world. If the rumors about the EOS 7D replacement’s innovative video features are true, then NAB 2014 could be a great stage to introduce such a DSLR.

What else to expect from Canon this year? The usual suspects: new Cinema EOS lenses, the Powershot SX60 (replacement for the SX50) along with other Powershots. It will be interesting to see what exactly Canon will do following their statement that they will abandon the low-priced compact camera segment.

Stay tuned, there will be plenty of leaks in the next months.

Canon Rumor: New Canon APS-C Flagship On Its Way?

Canon RumorCanon Rumor

Is the successor of the EOS 7D on its way?

A new rumor suggests that Canon may use the concomitance of the Winter Olympics in Sochi (2/7-2/23) and CP+ (2/13-2/16) to announce various new products, among which there will be the replacement for the EOS 7D (price & specs).

The rumor states that speed, auto-focus and high ISO performance are the key elements where Canon wants feedback from their testers (apparently prototypes are out in the wild). The 7D successor should have a rugged build an a high fps. No word about the resolution, just that it will be over 20MP.

My take: Take it with a grain of salt. EOS 7D Mark II rumors have gone wild and sometimes contradictory in the last months. According to my sources there will be an APS-C DSLR positioned above the EOS 7D/70D but it will not be a “7D Mark II”. Canon’s next, new APS-C flagship is said to have a new naming scheme (and groundbreaking features). That fits with other rumors I got, saying Canon is working on a general revamping of their DSLR line-up, one source stated it is “the biggest change in Canon’s history“. I have also been told that there are prototypes undergoing testing.

The latest spec list I got (already published in the past) that could refer to the 7D successor:

  • ~24MP sensor with Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • Auto-Focus system similar to the EOS 5D Mark III (61 points), possibly the same as 5D3
  • High frame rate, 10-12 fps
  • “high grade” weather sealing, like Canon’s professional DSLRs
  • Dual Digic V+ processor
  • Single card slot
  • WiFi & GPS
  • Innovative video features
  • Price around $2000
  • Very good ISO performance

Only time will tell.
