I’ve for­got­ten ex­actly how long I’ve been wait­ing for this model. Here it is, fi­nally...

Well, this should clue you in. It took Canon nearly five years to fi­nally re­veal an up­grade to its en­try-level, full-frame model! They’ve made a num­ber of im­prove­ments over the EOS 6D.

One can only hope. This better be well worth the wait.

Hard to im­press, are we? It is quite a list, re­ally. See for your­self. There has been a res­o­lu­tion bump, an im­proved 45-point all-cross-type Au­toFo­cus sys­tem has been im­ple­mented and the ad­vanced Dual Pixel CMOS AF has been de­signed for quicker and ac­cu­rate fo­cus­ing. Na­tive sen­si­tiv­ity has also in­creased to ISO 40,000 along with the frame rate re­ceiv­ing a hum­ble raise to 6.5fps. And of course the lat­est DIGIC 7 pro­ces­sor can be found un­der the hood.

Well well. That good huh? And has the LCD be­come more flex­i­ble?

Yes, it has let go of its rigid­ity. Now the swiv­el­ling and tilt­ing dis­play can be made to point in nearly any di­rec­tion, in­clud­ing for­ward.

Wait. I just re­alised – you never men­tioned 4K.

Ah caught that, did you? Sadly, no 4K to be found here. This move seems to as­sume the av­er­age user wouldn’t want to shoot in UHD right now. For en­thu­si­asts chang­ing ever so of­ten, it’s fine but long-term buy­ers, look else­where for some­thing more fu­ture proof.

Sigh, oh well. Any­how I hope it has GPS.

Of course it does. The built-in GPS can op­tion­ally tag im­ages with the cam­era’s GPS co­or­di­nates at the time they have been clicked, and is stored as the meta­data. A map of places pho­tographed can also be main­tained with the log show­ing the places the user has vis­ited.

And con­nec­tiv­ity?

Noth­ing is left be­hind. With Wi-Fi and NFC, users can trans­fer me­dia to smart de­vices and even up­load them on the Canon Im­age Gate­way or var­i­ous so­cial me­dia sites. It even fea­tures Blue­tooth low en­ergy that re­mains con­nected to de­vices but has less power con­sump­tion.

Any lens kit on of­fer?

You have two choices. The Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM lens kit costs `1,84,995 while the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM II lens bun­dle is priced at `2,02,995.

Users can have real-time con­trol of cam­era set­tings, such as shut­ter speed, fo­cus se­lec­tion, self-timer and more, with the Canon Cam­era Con­nect app
