Canon's probably launching an updated version of its 7D next week

The photographic industry is gearing up for one of its biggest events, Photokina in Cologne, which kicks-off next week. Naturally, the preceding fortnight is a high-time for the internet's leak-happy camera fans, and Digital Camera Info has, once again, come up with the goods. The site is claiming that Canon will launch the 7D Mark II at the shindig. According to the spec list, the dust-proof magnesium alloy shell is protecting a boosted 20.2-megapixel CMOS, dual DIGIC 6 processors and a 65-point autofocus. The 7D Mark II will shoot full-HD video at 60p, which will keep Canon's cottage industry of DSLR-toting cinematographers happy. Of course, this is all just rumor and speculation, so take it with a pinch of salt, but just a small one - we're watching our cholesterol.
