Canon EOS 7D pics and specs leak out
via Engadget by Paul Miller on 8/29/09
We saw the top, we saw the poster, and now it looks like we've got
more or less the whole deal: Canon's EOS 7D has been leaked in (most
of) its gory detail. At the heart there's an 18 megapixel sensor and
dual DIGIC 4 processors, which shoots stills at 8 FPS with ISO from
100 to 6400 and a special 12800 ISO mode. The 3-inch LCD has a 920,000
dot resolution, while the viewfinder offers 100% coverage and a
built-in digital level. Naturally the camera picks up the HD movie
capabilities of the 5D, but no word on how it might expand upon them
just yet. All this info has been gleaned from a Chinese forum, so
we're still obviously awaiting on official word from Canon -- but if
the rapid leakage rate is any indication, it can't be too far off.

rather than having to poke the dials and buttons on the camera itself.
