Two rumors surfaced during the last weekend. First one comes from CR and is about a >40MP DSLR. The interesting thing: the sources states that two prototypes of this high res cam were tested during the London Olympics. The camera housing is said to be that of the EOS-1D X. The camera should have a high framerate, despite its high res sensor, 8 fps have been mentioned. Finally, there are more, unspecified “new features and technology” that are tested with the prototypes.
Second one comes from NL. This rumor basically overlaps with another rumor CanonWatch was first to report. An EOS 7D Mark II could be around the corner, and may get announced later this year (Photokina?). This DSLR will be the new APS-C flagship in Canon’s line-up. The rumored specs:
24MP – an all new sensor with phase AF on chip and noticeably lower noise than the current 18MP.
1Dx/5D3 based AF system.
High speed video, with still capture.
Improved durability and sealing.
