Canon 7D Replacement

Will ther be no No Canon 7D Alternative?

A Canon 7d replacement?  

The latest Canon rumors hint at not replacing the Canon EOS 7D, but rather a complete change that will reaffirm Canon as one of the leaders in imaging technology.

Canon may make an official announcement as early as August for an October release of a totally new high-end camera.  Technology may include a new Foveon type of layered sensor and a hybrid electronic viewfinder.  If it is anything like the electronic viewfinder (EVF) on my Canon g1x Mark II, I am going to love it. 

Canon definitely  has the research and technology resources to come up with something big.  They have certainly lagged behind in the "Mirrorless" cameras. maybe that is due to fervent work on a totally new sensor and camera design.

In any case, this is exciting news for Canon geeks like me.


Canon 7D Replacement - Video

It is likely that the video capabilities of this NON Canon 7D Replacment will be something quite advanced.  Eliminating a flip up mirror saves space, speeds up the image capture process and makes video easier.


The announcement could be perfectly timed for a big unveiling at Photokina in mid-September.  Photokina is the biggest photography event in the World, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Canon times it this way.

Remember Canon Fans, this is just a rumor right now!
