More Canon 7D Mark II rumors coming in today, this time – sensor technology. According to new reports over on Canon Rumors, the Canon 7D replacement will feature new sensor tech. What exactly will be new is still unknown.


There were some rumors that Canon had been working on a “Foveon-like” sensor, and some thought that might make its debut in the Canon 7D replacement. But, according to the new rumor, the new sensor tech will NOT be foveon-like, but something completely different.
