There was an embargo for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II in place, which came to an end earlier this month and led to several images and details appearing online. However, the new DSLR is still a no-show, although this could all change tomorrow.
We expect the official Canon 7D Mark II unveil to be tomorrow seeing as though this is the first day of Photokina 2014. Even though we already know what many of its new features will be, along with its design, we do look forward to seeing some sample images to see just how much improved the new model is.
We can tell you that there does not seem to be any drastic changes, although there are a few minor changes to the interface, which we suspect will help improve the overall user experience.
When looking at the 7D Mark I and MK II side-by-side, you will find it very difficult to tell them apart. However, one nice little touch is the “photos remaining” counter that appears on the LCD panel at the top of the newer model. This is because it has now been increased to 4 digits. This was not so much of a big deal years ago, but with the large memory cards available these days, having this increase is a must.
With the Canon 7D Mark II release date looming we must not forget that there are other cameras from the brand due to be unveiled during Photokina tomorrow, which are the Canon PowerShot G7 X and the PowerShot SX60 HS.
