The EOS 7D Mark II features a refined APS-C sized 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor with Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors for gorgeous imagery. It shoots up to 10 frames per second at ISOs ranging from 100–16000 (expandable to H1: 25600, H2: 51200), has a 65-point* all cross-type AF system and features Canon’s amazing Dual Pixel CMOS AF for brilliant Live-View AF. It has dual card slots for both CF and SD cards, USB 3.0 connectivity and even has built-in GPS** for easy location tagging, automatically.
Achieve Impressive AF During Video Capture.
Canon’s innovative Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables you to shoot video like a camcorder with smooth, fast, and accurate autofocus and lets you enjoy instant and precise autofocus even when shooting stills.
The EOS 7D Mark II features Canon’s revolutionary Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a milestone in AF speed and accuracy that unlocks the potential of Live View shooting. This advanced technology has truly changed what is possible with a DSLR camera.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF involves a sophisticated rethinking of the CMOS sensor. Traditionally, image sensors have one photodiode per pixel for recording, but the CMOS sensor on the EOS 7D Mark II has two photodiodes per pixel, 40 million in total, enabling each pixel on the sensor to both perform phase-difference detection autofocus and capture light. With phase-difference detection AF, autofocus is achieved quickly and easily on the camera. This unique AF system enables autofocus on approximately 80% of the image plane, vertically and horizontally, and helps ensure virtually no loss in image quality.
Just to recap, the new Canon 7D Mark II has a 20.2 Megapixel Dual Pixel CMOS AF enabling you to shoot video like a camcorder with smooth, fast, and accurate autofocus and for low noise at High ISO. A 65-point* all cross-type high-performance AF system. High speed continuous shooting up to 10.0 fps allows you to capture fast action. The Viewfinder II provides approximately 100% field of view, and now a built-in intervalometer for time lapse.
I get the feeling Canon isn't pushing towards video shooters as much as they are pushing it as a fast stills camera for sports photographers. But for video shooters who want to stick with Canon, one upgrade over other Canon DSLRs is the ability to now shoot 1080/60fps (sorry no 4K talk). The dual pixel auto focus in video mode should make it very easy to track subjects and maintain sharp focus, and hopefully this new sensor and dual Digic 6 processors will offer amazing low light capabilities.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II
I saw a quick and dirty video test the other day. Better video than 70d (much less moire), but still soft. Nowhere near gh2 quality (lol)
Doug, I have to agree with you. There are other cameras for much less money (i.e. the 70D) that will do much of what this camera will do if most of your focus is on videography. The 7D Mark II will be excellent for anyone who needs that high fps though for action photography!
This camera is probably more marketed towards sports/wildlife shooters than video shooters. The high FPS is huge at the price point. Weather sealing is a big thing for both as well. If you shoot either of those things, this camera may be right up your alley.
If you want to shoot 90% video or you are going to be doing studio photography, this isn't for you.
finally canon gives 60fps in 1080p, really too little too late. in terms of actual resolution for video it's probably not going to be that great either.
Do you know if my 5D MKIII batteries will work on the 7D MKII? The chatline at Adorama did not know yet...
ok the 7d mk2 is a bit cheaper though...
Vladbox, the first version had clean HDMI too...
Canon is kind of trapped because of its higher end pro cameras, which seems like a joke when you have to have a 15000$ one just to have punch in zoom while recording for example (to check focus).
Brands like Panasonic don't seem to be worried about limiting their pro sales by giving their semi-pro / amateur serious tools & abilities.
I don't think this would excite anyone now with the GH4 & the A7S...but i'm curious to see its low light / high iso capacity for example...again the price will be quite near the A7s.
Its for photographers, But it has clean HDMI out.
this loses everywhere where video is concerned compared to the same-price GH4... sorry Canon, no more body upgrades.
@Joseph - They really should. Maybe that will keep sone people from getting a new camera and stay with Canon a bit longer.
Now are we going to see a firmware update for the 5Diii allowing it to do 1080P 60:-(
As in 5D Mark3? 5D3 is full frame, the 7D2 is APS-C. They are pretty different.
Does anyone else realize that this camera is the Mark 3 at a cheaper price with better slow motion! Damn u canon lol
