A new 20-megapixel APS-C sensor gives Canon’s latest SLR an ISO range of 100–16000, the company says, and lets the EOS 7D Mark II capture 10 frames per second: up to 31 Raw images or 1,090 JPEGs.
In addition to the Dual Pixel system “for rapid and precise focusing of video,” the camera has a new 65-point autofocus system, as well a newly developed mirror mechanism that uses motorized control to help reduce impact and enhance camera performance during high-speed continuous shooting, Canon says.
The dust- and weather-resistant magnesium alloy body houses a 3-inch LCD, and a GPS receiver for geotagging.
The 7D Mark II camera body is $1,799. There’s more information here.

The $550 camera has a 16-megapixel sensor.
