Trivial question but is the LP-E6N battery the same as the LP-E6?

No. Same form factor but the LP-E6N has more power. We know the 7D2 will be backwardly compatible with the LP-E6. What isn't clear yet is if the 7D or 5D3 will take the LP-E6N.

From the WEX video:

“(20.2 MP)…which is actually the same resolution as what we’ve got in our 70D. But this is actually a brand new sensor. What we’ve done is we’ve redesigned the microlenses, that are actually on each individual pixel, to make the camera more efficient, so it will give you better image quality especially in low light conditions”. – Dave Perry, Canon UK

Heya,

Fantastic camera for wildlife and sports. Fast. Really robust autofocus with -3EV low light piercing and great ISO performance? I bet it produces CLEAN files at ISO 1600 and ISO 3200, which is exactly what we need, which means with good processing we can make acceptable ISO 6400 and possibly even manage decent ISO 12800 files with good exposure and good processing. Dual DIGIC 6 is awesome. And 10 FPS? It's starting to sound like a 1D series camera in a 5D class body. But at the prosumer price point of $1700.

I want.

Very best,

Me too. I want. Honestly I am very excited but I might wait a year before I buy it...wait I said that before with my other gear too. :D, Nah seriously very excited but I might wait until my 7D give up on me.

Hello bk2life, canon website states :

"External Flash Compatibility - E-TTL II with EX series Speedlites, wireless multi-flash support"

But I think it is optical only.

a new camera without WiFi ?

Like Canon's other more pro-oriented cameras, it will use a separate WFT module that gives about 10X the range and better performance than built-in WiFi.

Camera also would need to be more plasticky to accommodate built-in WiFi. Canon mentions that built-in WiFi doesn't work well with metal clad bodies, such as 7D, 5D and 1D series.

LP-E6N Battery - I guess it will be backward compatible with 5d / 6D etc - otherwise if it could cause damage then Canon would have used a different form factor. Hahnel is selling their extreme version of the LP-E6 that has increased 25% capacity for existing cameras using LP-E6 batteries.

I read from this that they have made no advances in actual sensor quality what so ever and tossed out the improved microlens line we have heard from every new camera since the 40D came out.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Thats what i thought too.... a true follow-up to D300S ;)

Neilyb wrote in post #17155328 (external link)
Well, it might just be the camera all Nikon D300 shooters have been waiting for :) But does low noise at high ISO mean low detail? I will wait until someone else has tested it :) but 10fps and decent AF sounds like a winner... not sure how the small battery will last though...

Now to all the Wifi wanters, is it more to do with the magnesium housing than the cost? Or is it that Canon wants 850$ for their wifi unit?

The 7D II looks impressive. I wish the kit lens was a 100-400L II though. ;)

Seriously, I wish Canon would have announced a new 100-400L II alongside the 7D II. Would have made a good day even better. :)

Canon claims LP-E6N is more efficient in cold temperatures, like at 0°C and below, than the previous LP-E6.

Has anyone seen any positive claim that this camera supports exposure compensation in M mode when using Auto ISO, or something equivalent to that?
I've seen that it supports the selection of maximum exposure time all the way down to 1/8000 s, which until then also was a 1DX-only feature, but I've seen nothing about EC.

Oh wow! The AF is looking better and better. Not only is Spot AF and 4-point Expansion AF (both dropped for the 70D) but there's 8-Point Expansion AF!

8 point expansion? Wow it's getting better and better. This will be awesome in BIF.

It could be fundamentally the same form factor, but with a small notch somewhere that stops the E6N going in to older cameras.

A lot of ways to interpret this. It appears to me that the redesign of the microlens was the major focus, although what that means in terms of other necessary changes to the sensor is unknown. I certainly will withhold judgment until there are actual tests of the camera. Canon is explicitly claiming improved low-light/high ISO performance, and Kelby claims that it is the best crop camera in that regard that he has seen. Some whine that the "crop" modifier suggests that this means little. To someone who is going to use a crop camera in any case, I look forward to the possibility that this body is better than any other in its class.

I thought the new battery was also higher capacity. Am I wrong?
Can I buy a couple for my 7D?


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