We have been hearing rumors that Canon could be looking to launch a successor to its Canon EOS 7D camera, and while the rumors have been floating about for a couple of years, we have yet to see anything from Canon just yet, but could 2014 finally be the time that Canon takes the wraps off the device? Perhaps. Or perhaps not, but if the latest rumors are to be believed, word on the street has it that canon will be announcing the camera at the CP+ show in Japan which is taking place a little before MWC 2014 and will run from the 13th of February until the 16th of February 2014. Given that CP+ is a camera/photography related event, we expect camera companies such as Canon might take the opportunity to announce something then.
Based on what we know about the EOS 7D MK II so far is that it could sport either a 20MP or a 24MP Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensor as Canon has reportedly not finalized its specs yet (at that time). It could also feature an AF system similar to that of the EOS 5D MK III with 61-points, along with a shooting speed of 10-12fps. It is also rumored to sport a weather-sealed body, a Dual DIGIC V+ processor, and GPS connectivity, all of which will be priced around $2,000. Admittedly this isn’t much to go on at the moment, but hopefully more details will emerge as we get closer to CP+ 2014, so be sure to check back with us then for the details, until then do take it with a grain of salt.
