1) Suck a lot of batteries if isn't disabled from the camera.

Only if using an old outdated chip and poor circuit design for it. I pulled the spec for a modern GPS chip that I've used in robotics recently, and a 7D battery could power the thing for about 6 months in its active mode (Actually calculating position) and 3 years in its low powered mode (where it is merely monitoring incoming signals so it can switch back to active mode to calculate position in about a second).

Oh, and the chip is 8mm x 8mm and 2mm high. Not exactly a hard thing to fit into a board.

I haven't visited this thread for a while and recently re-read my first post in (see below)

I do not want (please Canon):

•Video recording (I don't shoot video with a stills camera)
•GPS (I know where I have taken photos)
•A flippy, twisty, touch screen (I am able to understand controls on a camera, plus I am older than 12) and don't need something which won't stand up to the situations I take pictures in.
•The same sensor as the 70D (negligible improvement)
•Did I mention video recording
•Single slot card(but can live with this if you promise not to put any video on the camera)
•Any pre-set modes like sport or landscape to clutter up my mode dial
•Crazy high megapixel numbers please
•V....I....D....E....O


If the 'Canon Rumours' are true, I think I might be a very happy bunny (as we say over here) with the new 7D II. :) I have learned to live with the fact that video will be a part of the pacage though.


Call me Amanda please :)

I think some points are being missed. I don't mind video, GPS, wifi, espresso maker... So long as it doesn't reduce the quality of the still images I take (primary purpose of the camera) - which, in current form, it does (due to AA filter being so darn thick).

I do mind. I'm paying for the R&D cost of developing & implementing these features, as well as the extra mark-up Canon tacks on due to these features being included.

You seem to be under the impression that a 7D II without video would be cheaper than one with :p

Also I dare say the Magic Lantern team have put infinitely more effort into R&D than Canon is when it comes to their DSLR range video. Canon just slaps in a few different resolutions and frame rates and leaves it at that.

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

Ditto. They can throw in all the bells and whistles they want. Just please improve the base functionality - the sensor.

I was firmly in the "stop griping about video, it comes free" camp but based on the last few Canon releases, I migh be changing my mind. Though true, video is a sunk cost and adding it does not change the base cost of the camera, what it seems to have done is changes Canon's focus. They seem to be putting in little effort in improving the camera from a still shooters point of view and concentrating on the video. So though video does not add to the cost, it does change their focus. Hopefully the new 7D will see significant improvements for us still shooters.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

I'm not really sure I agree with this statement.

The last 5 DSLR cameras released by canon were the T5, 70D, t5i, SL1, and 6D. Of those, only the 70D had any noticeable video upgrades, the "Dual Pixel AF". However, I could easily argue, this technology is an incredible upgrade to live view AF FOR STILLS, and happens to result in better AF for video as well. It's all about your paradigm.

As for the STM lenses, they're the inexpensive lens lines, so I really don't see why that's a change in focus. They're just making general purpose lens, more general purpose.

I'll agree I'd like to see sensor improvements, over and above the ISO noise bumps they've regularly given us for years.

Given your username, I'm sure you're being super-ironic.

Not too sure I want a 46 megapixel sensor either!?

Is this good or bad?

I wonder if they are counting the dual pixel design as individual pixels? That would make more sense since this puts it in the 23mp range.
