13 Things You Didn’t Know About The Canon EOS 7D Mark II (by Jon Stapley)

The Canon EOS 7D Mark II is one of the standout DSLRs to be announced at this year’s Photokina expo. In this article Michael Topham lists thirteen things you might not already know about Canon’s most advanced APS-C camera to date…

1. Improved Dust and Water Resistance

The EOS 7D Mark II improves where the original EOS 7D left off with a superior build quality that’s claimed by Canon to be the second best in the EOS system – ahead of the Canon EOS 5D Mark III.

This puts it right behind the Canon EOS 1DX in regard to its ruggedness, however it must be said it feels virtually identical to the original EOS 7D despite being 90g heavier.

2. Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors

A pair of dual DIGIC image processors was always going to result in an ultra-high-speed continuous shooting performance – up 10 frames per second to be precise.

What’s more, the EOS 7D Mark II can rattle out 31 Raw files at this speed before the camera shows any sign of slowing. What with the Canon EOS 7D Mark II being the first Canon DSLR in the EOS lineup to feature to feature a pair of DIGIC 6 image processors, it asks the question: how long will it be before we see a similar configuration appear in a Canon full-frame DSLR?

3. No Wi-fi connectivity

One of the biggest talking points on the EOS 7D Mark II is Wi-fi connectivity – or to be more accurate, the lack of it. It was two years ago at Photokina when we reported on the Canon EOS 6D’s announcement, which stood out at the time for being the first full-frame DSLR to feature Wi-fi.

More recently we’ve seen Nikon also announce a Wi-fi enabled full frame DSLR in the form of the new Nikon D750. Two years later and it’s a feature that’s excluded on Canon’s new flagship APS-C model – an odd omission, but one that’s presumably been made to ensure the camera meets its attractive price point (£1599 body only).

About Us

I was born somewhere, and over the last 43 years I have been trying to grow up. Along the way I went to a prestigious university, two times, where I learned about things. Then I stayed around in Cape Town, South Africa and did various things for different famous and important people. I ended up where I am now. A romantic anthropologist, a social media community manager, a web editor and an award-winning photographer. I have survived my chemical based darkroom, outlived silver based film and I am trying to continue doing stuff in binary code now. I love food and wine and remain a fulltime student of life as apparent from my diverse interests and training. I am always looking for a challenge to work with odd and inspiring creative people.
