During the Phonkina 2014 conference Canon announced something big, the Canon EOS 7D Mark II, which is a revamp from the original 7D DSLR.

In this revamp, one of the main features you get is a new 65 point autofocus system, all of which are cross type, meaning that you end up with a higher sensitivity in both portrait and landscape shots. On top of that you also get Intelligent Tracking and Recognition Auto Focus technology, both of which are the same as the 1D X.

Alongside that, the 7D MkII also has built-in GPS, allowing images to be geo-tagged easily, and a few new upgrades under the hood too.

The biggest of which is a new 20.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, that has been joined with Dual Digic 6 processors for faster performance, allowing for a 10fps burst mode. The shutter is has also been upgraded for up to 200,000 cycles, and the camera now has an ISO range of 100-16,000, or an extended range of ISO 51,200.

Canon have also upgraded the video recording on the camera, allowing for 1080p video capture at up to 60fps alongside a new anti-flicker mode that will work to eliminate flickering lights.

On the side Canon have also included a microphone and headphone jack, alongside a HDMI port, and the camera will also be able to time sync two cameras, and will include an integrated Speedlite transmitter for controlling flashguns off camera.

The EOS 7D Mark II will be available from November priced at £1,600 for the body-only.
