It amazes me how people just don't get that...

Not trying to be a smart a$$, but what do you use wi-fi on a camera for?

USB3 is a huge plus.


Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!

I don't see anything about video auto focusing like the 70D

It's actually even better than the 70D.
It's a great camera for artsy video people.

It has the same dual-pixel video AF as the 7D, with added customisation - LINK (external link)

Ya finally lol. This means I don't need a CF reader for my laptop. Just leave the memory card in the camera and transfer via USB now fast!

It would be helpful if you explain how you use wifi on your dslr. Many of us use iPads and smart phones so we will understand.

Remote camera control. Besides, I use the DSLRController wireless setup with my 5D2 and I don't find it to be an issue, and the files are larger (marginally) than what is going to be coming out this camera. I'd love to have WiFi built into the camera and not need a secondary device for it.

This camera may not have certain "attention grabbing" features that some people were wanting (like 4K video), but it does have a lot of features that are great news to most photographers who needed these "tweaks" such as the expansion of the minimum shutter speed option, EV compensation in M mode (I don't think anyone has mentioned that yet), great AF, uncompressed HDMI out, etc.
Hopefully the IQ will be good too. They're claiming it's not the same sensor as the one in the 70D.
If it turns out to be good, I'll be in trouble... I like my 70D, and love the articulated touchscreen for videos and certain still shooting scenarios. The 7DMII doesn't have those, so it's going to be a tough decision.

I just wish it was a flip of a wheel though. You have to hit the Q button and then select the exposure comp option then adjust. It'll be "OK" but for the run and gun constantly changing it'll be cumbersome. Better than nothing though

if high iso performance is good... then I want. the af system all cross points is the sell for me, I can't bring myself to believe the 6D af will fit my needs and the 5d3 is out of my budget. Really want a ff camera, but AF factors more than ff sensor benefits if the iso I need is there.


Godox/Flashpoint r2 system, plus some canon stuff.

In my case, I can set it up on a tripod taking pictures in the forest (thanks for the GPS!) and take pictures of flora and fungi.
I can connect to my camera with my smartphone/iPad and control it remotely and achieve detailed focus without being on my knees for hours.
This is just a small example but the possibilities are endless.

As I said, wifi modules are ubiquitous and cheap (<$3 for the entire cheapset) so there's no excuse not to have it on an $1800 camera.

If you don't want it, turn it off. Easy as that.

As a remote viewfinder screen.

When trying to shoot at awkward angles (and at my age most of them are) it's great to be able to use my phone to show what the sensor sees. When setting up my GoPro to shoot archers (where I want to shoot down from over 2m) I can change the composition easily. Otherwise I'd have to climb on a chair (which drives the H&S people nuts).

I now do not have to get a trigger for my 600 rt as the this new 7D has a built in trigger. Now to order one. What to do with my 300D and 40D and T5i. Maybe keep 40D as backup. After reading more it is optical only triggering. Bummer. optional Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E7A Version 2 available. Version 1 was about 700 C$. Bummer.

Just figure 70D sensor performance. It's fine. Just look at Gab's shots lol.
