Canon 7D Leaks

A lower end complement to the EOS-5D Mark II may be due just two weeks after Canon's PowerShot upgrades today, a combination of leaks appears to show. An image at a Chinese forum (since pulled) shows a photo of a supposed EOS-7D and correlates to a now known-accurate rumor that showed the 7D in Best Buy's retail system along with all the point-and-shoot cameras released today, including the previously unknown S90. A Canon representative is also reported as having given the camera a September 1st launch with both a $2,700 body-only version and a $2,900 kit with a 28-135mm EF lens.

Most spec rumors for the 7D have it scaling down to 12.1 megapixels, below the resolution of even the Rebel T1i, but still using a full-frame sensor that would give it light sensitivity between ISO 100 and 25,600. It's also suspected that it would have the unique addition of a 3-inch OLED for more accurate colors on previews than an LCD but that it would slow down to 3.9 frames per second in continuous shooting from the 5 frames of the earlier model. The photo from today shows a microphone grille and directly hints at video capture that should include 1080p.

The Canon representative also allegedly made reference to the EOS-60D being available at the same time as the 7D. Rumors for that have it continuing to use a crop-frame sensor but a possibly improved 14.7-megapixel sensor with better low-light response, more autofocusing points and 1080p video.
