PhotoPlus is going down over in New York City in the second half of this week, and that’s when we might be hearing a peep out of Canon regarding its rumored high-resolution DSLR. If there’s any mention of the camera at all, it will probably at most be an “in development” announcement that confirms rumors but doesn’t reveal too much else.
There are new rumors floating around that a Canon 7D Mark II might not be too far off. Northlight Images writes that the camera will reportedly be announced early in 2013, in time for the trade shows CP+ in Japan and PMA/CES in the United States. The camera may be a successor to both the 7D and the 60D, offering more advanced features at a reduced price that targets the serious-amateur segment of the market.
The rumors say that Canon is trying to boost the continuous shooting speed of the camera up to 10 frames per second, and that the company won’t be putting more than 25 megapixels of resolution in the sensor. Canon Rumors is predicting that we’ll be seeing a slow down in the APS-C DSLR market, since the new Canon 6D and Nikon D600 are doing a lot to disrupt the standard pricing structure of the consumer DSLR industry.
