Personally, I'm not interested at it all. Probably just makes the cam heavier and I heard about battery issues because of GPS on 6D.

Exactly.

If I'm in a location where I need GPS to tell me where I am, it's probably also a location where I can't charge my batteries and need to conserve power.

GPS in the camera isn't to tell you where you are, but to tell where the photos were taken. And with an option to turn on/off GPS. So no reason to cry about power.

I was just going to ask this, thanks for answering.

If I did a hiking trip, I'd love to have a GPS trail of my photos. However, since 99% of the photos I take are either at home, or someplace like a zoo, I don't have much use for it. Like pwm2 says though, just turn it off if you're worried about your battery life.

So instead of adding a couple of software upgrades and a headphone jack to a perfectly good $1000 camera (or $2000 in the 7D2's case), I should spend upwards of $10K to get those features? I'm not looking to shoot 4K or RAW.

Quite right. And if a lower-priced Panasonic GH4 can record 4K internally, why not a 7D II?

Video is a necessary reality with these cameras. I know it is hugely unpopular with many photographers who don't care about video, but if Canon is going to include video functionality in all their DSLRs then it is not too much to ask that they implement it well (keeping pace with video standards and including basic features like focus peaking).

Exactly. It's about geotagging photos. I have the add-on GPS unit for my 5D III, but I would like GPS built-in all my cameras.

While a DSLR may suffer from rolling shutter disease, there really are no reasons why a new DSLR shouldn't be able to record 4k video, managing at least 24fps, 25fps, 30fps. Possibly even 60fps.

The read-out speed is possible, and the chips fast enough to process the data. The used memory cards would decide what video compression level that would be required. While current blu-ray disks with full-HD can be streamed over 100Mbit/s networks, a number of memory card technologies can do 100Mbytes/s or better - so at least eight times higher bandwidth than what media players needs for full HD while the 4k video has four times as many pixels.

I agree. With all eyes on Sony and their sensor business, Canon needs to steal the spotlight. A tick-tock isn't going to work here. Canon needs to blow everyone out of the water.

They need to do what Intel did to AMD a few years back.

But that won't happen with a 7D, IMO. I think that blow-your-socks off upgrade will first appear in a 1D body.

I think that the touch screen would be very useful for video for things like rack focusing and keeping the AF on your subject if it loses it while tracking. The flip out LCD as well for low/high shots. It's too bad the 70D is missing a headphone jack and some of the essential video features (zebras, peaking) though. If not in the 7D2, when will we have a complete video DSLR? Maybe the 5D4?

I like the flip-out screen for odd-angle shots, but have no desire for a touch screen; it would be a NEGATIVE for me, pushing me away from that body.

And that's a real shame. After riding the 7D for all it's worth for 5 YEARS canon should make some real noise with the 7D2. If not...FAIL.

Probably gonna be a kickass AF system! However, I am very happy with my 70D and I would miss the WIFI, touchscreen and especially the flipout screen

What do you use the WiFi for?

Yes, I have to GPS tag all my photos with an accessory as well. Built in on every camera would be SO convenient.

Almost every shot I take is GPS tagged.

The wifi is used for tethering in the studio so you don't have to connect an Ethernet cable if it's a 1D or the USB cable if it's any of the other camera bodies.

That's what I meant. To tell you where you are when you take the photos.

But the places where you have no idea where you are when taking a photo also tend to be the places where you can't easily charge camera batteries. And GPS functions on any device tend to be power hogs.
