Canon 7D Mark III Not Coming in 2018

Canon 7D Mark III isn’t coming in the year of 2018 according to latest rumors coming from Canon rumor. The veteran rumor mill is talking about the refresh period of 7D series model and if we go over average number of days between each model than still 300 days left for next refresh.

So based on average refresh cycle  of Canon 7D Series DSLRs the Canon 7D isn’t coming anytime soon.

1. Actual Reasons behind the Daley of Canon 7D Mark III ?

I am talking about is possible reason behind the delay of Canon APS-C DSLR flagship update. Well, in the beginning of the year Canon said they are more focused for Mirrorless cameras this year and finally its look like Canon is to Cannibalize Its DSLRs for Mirrorless, take a look what Canon said during an interview (via petapixel)

“actively roll out products for a growth market even if there is some cannibalization,” Canon Marketing Japan President Masahiro Sakata tells Nikkei.

cannibalize Meaning – use (a machine) as a source of spare parts for another, similar machine.
“cannibalizing two broken-down cars might provide spare parts to make one working car”

2. Canon putting More Attention on Mirrorless

It’s very clear that in 2018 Canon is putting more focus on High-end Mirrorless and at the same time they want to ignore their PRO DSLRs for a while to boom up Mirrorless sales, that’s what they picked a Mirrorless camera EOS M50 to introduce digic 8 image processor, 4K in APS-C and new file formats.

Although the Canon EOS M50 don’t feature DPAF support in 4K, because Canon said its price range isn’t allowing us to have DPAF with 4K in same model. It’s very clear that Canon saved its DPAF system in 4K for its flagship Mirrorless camera EOS M5 Mark II. So, we can expect a flagship camera mirrorless camera this year.

3. Canon 7D Mark II need an upgrade ?

It do need a big upgrade to compete against a year old Nikon D500, Sony A6500 and even Fuji X-T2. All these cameras feature better core specs than the Canon 7D II camera. Even the Canon 80D feature better sensor than 7D Mk II and EOS M50 arrived with a bundle of new features including new file formats and Digic 8 image processor. Well at this point no one knows except few people inside Canon when the 7D II is coming. But, the 7D Mk II sales number are are touching ground aka all time low based on the info available to us.

4. Jump to Mirrorless Ship

Well it’s all depend upon Canon when they want to announce their flagship DSLR camera. But if you look from larger perspective, before the arrival of Mirrorless makers Canon and Nikon were smoothly competing each other. But, now the scene is completely changed and due to aggressive core specs of Mirrorless cameras and reasonable price range, both DSLR makers Canon and Nikon losing the market share very rapidly.

According to a report published by Nikkei the DSLR sales dropped over 10% in Japan in 2017 while mirrorless sales are up by 30%. So, at least Canon want to Jump of Mirrorless Ship by Cannibalizing its DSLRs. And to add more features to Mirrorless cameras.

So at the end, its very clear that Canon 7D Mk III announcement is being delayed due to Canon new policy to bring Pro-Mirrorless cameras in lime-light.

Canon to Expand its Pro APS-C DSLR Lineup

Canon to expand

According to latest rumors surfaced over the web, Canon is planning to expand the Pro APS-C DSLR lineup by adding one more DSLR in between the Canon 90D and the Canon 7D mark III. From Canon latest trend of adding more APS-C DSLR series in the market the rumor look bit logical to us. However, the source of the rumor mill isn’t talking about the arrival time of these DSLRs.

Canon 77D DSLR successor of Canon 760D

From past few years, we have seen that Canon is trying to populate APS-C DSLRs category by giving us more and more options. For example, we have seen the addition of Canon 760D (and its successor Canon 77D). These set of DSLRs introduced to sit somewhere between the Canon 70D/ 80D series and the Rebel Series.

Similarly, last month Canon introduced and new entry level DSLR Canon 4000D in European and Asian region, which creates a new category of super affordable entry level DSLRs while using the canon most trusted (and outdated) 18 Megapixel sensor with contrast based AF.

As I said in the beginning of the article from past actions, it’s very clear that Canon may add more DSLRs to populate its Pro APS-C DSLR category.

Canon Registered FullFrame Mirrorless, DSLRs and Compacts

Canon finally registered fullframe mirrorless, DSLRs and compact camera. Well that’s a really great news,  the list of the camera includes DSLR. Take a look at the list of DSLRs, Mirrorless and cameras registered at wireless certification agency

1. Canon 5DS Mark II Registered

  • Model code – K424
    • Interchangeable lens camera
    • Full size
    • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
    • It is described as mirrorless image size (6720 × 4480) in the test data (since the detail column is filled with almost the same data as 5D Mark IV [K349], the image size may be a dummy possibility)

According to the source the shape of the camera reassembles with 5D Mark IV DSLR of size. And if you see the image below of Canon 5D Mark IV vs Canon 5DS they both are almost identical. So, its a strong possibility that Canon 5DS Mark II is coming.

2. Canon Full Frame Mirrorless with 30 MP FF DPAF Sensor

  • Model Code – K433
    • Interchangeable lens camera
    • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
    • It is described as mirrorless full size in the test data (it is the same as the data of K424, so it is possible that the initial setting data was diverted for testing)

The K433 is a Fullframe Mirrorless camera with a 30MP DPAF Sensor (test model). It looks like the Canon Fullframe test models carry same resolution sensor of Canon 5D Mark IV camera. But, we have to keep in mind that it’s a test model and sensor resolution may get changed  in the final version.

3. Canon 7D Mark II and Canon 90D [Possibility]

We have to more DSLRs in the announcement pipeline. And the only two DSLR left in Canon to get an update is Canon 7D Mark III and Canon 90D. So, we are expecting these two DSLRs will replace the existing flagship APS-C camera and ultra famous Canon 80D.

  • K436
    • Lens interchangeable camera (probably single lens reflex)
    • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • K437
    • Lens interchangeable camera (probably single lens reflex)
    • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed

4. Canon G series compacts Registered and more…

Canon G5 X mark II, camera G7 X Mark III camera and g3x mark II camera also due for an update but at the moment we don’t have very clear information about compacts camera.

    • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • EC804
    • Compact digital camera
    • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed

  • EC 811
    • Mirror-less camera

Canon mirrorless camera updates are also over due and after Canon EOS M50 announcement both EOS M6 and EOS M5 become outdated.

Take a look what source said

Please check the codename list for the device ID of the released model . As it is a Wi-Fi connection test, it is unknown about a camera not equipped with Wi-Fi. Also omit the video camera (device ID starting with D).
Looking at the past data, it seems to be announced within approximately two years from the start of connection test if commercialized.

That clearly indicates Canon 9D may arrive on Q1 of 2019 or may be later. The information look bit logical to us. However take it with grain of salt since its coming from anonymous source.

Canon 7D Mark III Coming with Dual Digic 8 and More...

Canon 7D Mark III

We are talking about the Canon 7D Mark III camera this time and its possibility for having a completely brand new sensor and Digic 8 image processor.

New Sensor and Image Processor

In general if Canon and announces of flagship camera the uses a completely new sensor as well as image process by date.

So, we have already seen the latest generation of Canon image processor introduced with Canon EOS M50 mirrorless camera. The image processor is super fast, it is able to process 24 megapixels of files @ 10 frames per second. And with the help of superfast image processor the Canon EOS M 50 become the first mirrorless camera in canon to feature 4K video recording.

Next Generation of DPAF  Tech

Canon is continuously working to improve its Dual Pixel CMOS AF tech more and more. We have seen patent documents that clearly indicated and more fast and accurate DPAF [see here and here]. And not only that we have also received hints in that past, that Next 7D Series camera will improved DPAF compared to 7D II and Canon 80D.

Canon 7D Camera with New sensor And Dual Digic 8

We have seen the trend of Canon flagship 7D series camera, in general carries a completely new sensor as well as dual set of image processor. The existing 7D sensor performance is even worst than of Canon 80D.  And all these silently confirm us that next generation of Canon 7D series camera brand new image sensor and Dual Digic 8 Image Processor.

Take a look at the updated core specs of the 7D Mark III camera, based on the information we have and our expectations.

Canon 7D Mark III Update Core Specification

  1. 24 megapixels with improved dynamic range and low light performance compare 80d DSLR camera.
  2. Next Generation of Dual Pixel CMOS AF Tech
  3. And with the introduction of Dual Digic 8 image processor.
  4. Continuous shooting up to 20 frames per second with the help of Electronic shutter.
  5. 14 FPS with AF tracking
  6. low light performance up to ISO 102400 / 204800.
  7. Introduction of 4K in canon 90d with dual pixel CMOS AF support.
  8. New generation of RAW as well as C-RAW files as it has been introduced with Canon EOS M50 camera
  9. Rear Variangle LCD screen.

Higher Resolution Sensor isn’t a good choice for 7D III

Many other website are talking about higher resolution sensor all because of 5D Mk IV arrived with a 30 MP sensor.

Chances of having more MP sensor is high, since in general the 7D series is said to be 5D series camera with APS-C sensor. This time we have a 30MP Canon 5D IV camera in our front. So, yes there is a possibility of 28-30MP APS-C sensor in next flasghip model.

But as we all know that Canon Sensors Dynamic range as well as low-light performance look bit inferior when we compare with Sony Mirrorless (Not SLT) as well as Nikon DSLRs (Most of Nikon DSLRs uses Sony sensor).

So, increasing the resolution will make it situation more worse, since when you have more megapixels the pixel area becomes small hence we get limited low-light performance and reduced dynamic range.

That’s all for now.

So these were our updated list of expectation with the Canon 7D Mark III camera. Do share your wish list with us.

No Canon 7D Mark III in 2018 ?

Canon 7D Mark II image

According to latest rumors we may not see the successor of Canon 7D Mark II camera in 2018. sources of veteran rumor mill suggest that Canon 7D Mark III camera isn’t coming in 2018 but if it does then it will be Q4 of 2018. Since, no solid information is available related to 7D Mark III camera right now.

Ok, the above information was what the sources said to a veteran rumor mill


But what I personally expect that canon should update the camera in the year of 2018 otherwise no will going to buy 7D mark 2 camera for now.

As for the fact Canon 7D Mark II announced on 15 Sep 2014 (3+ year old cam) is a  flagship Canon camera and it is limited to full HD recording mode.  At 2018 If you look around at Sony a 6500 OR Nikon d500 all  these flagshp camera features 4K recording option. And some of the mid range mirrorless cameras also like Panasonic G85 (at B&H) features 4K video recording with 5axis Image stabilization (Dual I.S) at $897.

DXO Canon 7D Mark II

Sensor of 7D Mk II need an upgrade. And one of the most important thing you should note that the sensor of Canon 80d which is a mid-tier camera is better than of Canon 7D Mark II in terms of dynamic range and low light performance.

So, What I think that Canon should desperately update the 7D mark 2 camera as soon as possible without any delay.

Do share your thoughts with us.
