Rumor: Canon EOS 7D Mark III will have Slight Crop in 4K
Trusted sources are claiming that the upcoming Canon EOS 7D Mark III will have slight crop when shooting 4K video. The previous rumor said the upcoming Canon EOS 7D Mark III will be announced before summer 2018, to replace the Canon EOS 7D Mark II ($1,134). And it is expected to be released in July/August 2018. The new Canon EOS 7D Mark III will get illuminated buttons, have 28MP sensor, 4K video and C-Log.
And here is the Canon EOS 7D Mark III specs wishlist from DPReview:
1. Better AF tracking. Canon’s iTR technology has lagged behind competitors the past few years, and a 7D III needs to significantly improve in this area to remain competitive. Our ideal situation: the same AF system as 1DX Mark II, giving wide-frame coverage, like the Nikon D500.
2. Improved video. The 7D II‘s video was only a marginal improvement over the original 7D, which was several years older. A 7D III is almost guaranteed to have 4K video.
3. Improved base ISO raw dynamic range. Given that most Canon cameras introduced since the 7D II have offered improved Raw dynamic range, we think it’s pretty likely to be part of a 7D III.
4. Touchscreen. The 7D II added dual-pixel AF, which was a really significant addition, especially for video, but it was hobbled by the fact that you had to use hardware controls for doing things like initiating subject tracking. Given that most newer Canons do this as well, it’s pretty likely to be included in a hypothetical 7D III.
5. AF Auto Fine Tuning for Canon lenses with the ability to save multiple focal length adjustment values.
6. Built-in WiFi. There’s no excuse not to have wireless connectivity built-in in 2018. Bluetooth and NFC would be the cherry on top.
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is currently on sale for $1,134,99 at Amazon, $1,499 at B&H, Adorama.
