Key Canon EOS 7D Mark II features absent from specs

With just over two weeks to go until the embargo for Canon’s next DSLR camera is due to end, we thought we would have a little recap of what we know about the EOS 7D Mark II so far, and there are two key features from the proposed specs missing, which could be a concern.

Even though the Canon EOS 7D Mark II specs should turn out to be the best from the entire range, we do have an issue with the lack of built-in Wi-Fi and touchscreen. Having no Wi-Fi means you will have to still take the memory card out in order to transfer images, unless there is Bluetooth.

This is not only time consuming to do so, but also means less practical if you have no card reader on the device you wish to transfer the images to, and so have to use a USB cable instead.

The smartphone and tablet age has meant that we now take the touchscreen for granted and many camera makers have taken advantage of this. However, Canon must feel that the use of a touchscreen on cameras such as its 7D Mark II DSLR is not required because using more traditional controls is much preferred by photographers.

As for the specs that will be part of the 7D Mark II, we have a full metal body, new sensor technology, 12FPS or possibly faster, Dual Pixel AF, and a 46-megapixel sensor. These features do vary from what we have reported before, as these are based on the latest assumptions from Canon Rumors.
