Canon has in­tro­duced its lat­est DSLR, the EOS 7D Mark II, re­plac­ing the age­ing EOS 7D with a new 20.2-megapixel APS-C sen­sor and Dual DIGIC 6 im­age processors. The 7D Mark II sup­ports up to 10 frames-per-sec­ond burst shoot­ing and packs a 65-point All Cross Type aut­o­fo­cus sys­tem with Dual Pixel CMOS.

The whole 7D II is weather re­sis­tant, and it has a built-in GPS for geo­tag­ging pho­tos. www.canon.co.za
