Just as was leaked a few days ago, the new Canon EOS 7D Mark II was officially announced at Photokina. The DSLR has been years in the making, and it will be in stores in November.
It comes with a 20.2 MP APS-C sensor, which can record 1080p video at 60fps. The camera has Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus, and Canon’s first 65-point All Cross Type autofocus.
10fps burst shooting is supported, and the standard ISO range is 100-16,000 for both stills and videos (and is expandable to ISO 51,600). The improved EOS Scene Detection system has a new 150,000 pixel RGB+IR 252-zone metering sensor for extreme precision.
Dual DIGIC 6 image processors handle anything you throw at them, and the EOS 7D Mark II has a magnesium alloy body that comes with dust and weather resistance. It has a built-in GPS, dual SD card slots that support UHS-1 speeds, and you’ll be able to connect the camera to your computer via USB 3.0.
Rounding up the package are a mini HDMI port, a stereo microphone port, a headphone jack for real-time monitoring, a PC socket for external flash units, and an N3 socket for Canon-made wired remote accessories.
The EOS 7D Mark II will set you back $1,799 for the body only, or $2,149 if you get it bundled with an EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens.
