Canon EOS 7D Mark III Rumored to Have Slight Crop in 4K
2018 will be the year for Canon to announce the EOS 7D Mark III to replace the current EOS 7D Mark II ($1,128) since the current Canon 7D Mark II is more than three years old. The latest rumors suggest the Canon EOS 7D Mark III DSLR camera will have a slight crop when shooting in 4K.
The previous rumor said the Canon EOS 7D Mark III DSLR camera will be announced in March 2018, just before the NAB show in April. And it is expected to come with 4K video, a “new generation” of Canon APS-C sensors and C-Log.
1. Better AF tracking. Canon’s iTR technology has lagged behind competitors the past few years, and a 7D III needs to significantly improve in this area to remain competitive. Our ideal situation: the same AF system as 1DX Mark II, giving wide-frame coverage, like the Nikon D500.
2. Improved video. The 7D II‘s video was only a marginal improvement over the original 7D, which was several years older. A 7D III is almost guaranteed to have 4K video.
3. Improved base ISO raw dynamic range. Given that most Canon cameras introduced since the 7D II have offered improved Raw dynamic range, we think it’s pretty likely to be part of a 7D III.
4. Touchscreen. The 7D II added dual-pixel AF, which was a really significant addition, especially for video, but it was hobbled by the fact that you had to use hardware controls for doing things like initiating subject tracking. Given that most newer Canons do this as well, it’s pretty likely to be included in a hypothetical 7D III.
5. AF Auto Fine Tuning for Canon lenses with the ability to save multiple focal length adjustment values.
6. Built-in WiFi. There’s no excuse not to have wireless connectivity built-in in 2018. Bluetooth and NFC would be the cherry on top.
