Image leak of EOS 7D
An image has surfaced that allegedly shows the top shell of an unannounced Canon camera, potentially the EOS-7D, according to a forum post on Digital Photography Review. The component closely resembles the top of Canon's EOS 5D Mark II, although the button arrangement and left-side dial are both slightly different.
A separate leak recently showed a zoomed image of the EOS 7D badge, although the entire camera was not presented. Rumored specs suggest the 7D would be a lower-end version of the 5D Mark II, with a 12.1-megapixel full-frame sensor and 3-inch OLED display. The camera is said to be capable of shooting up to 3.9 frames per second, while video recording supports up to 1080p.
A Canon representative is rumored to have slipped a release date of September 1st, along with a price of $2,700 for the body or $2,900 with a 28-135mm EF lens.
