Canon EOS 7DSV Studio Version Announced

Canon has announced a new version of the Canon EOS 7D called the 7DSV which means Studio Version.

New features within the camera include an optional barcode solution as well as a locking feature that gives admin control over the camera.

The Locking feature on the EOS 7D allows an administrator to lock/disable various functions and settings on a camera which essentially only gives the user the options they need to complete a job. Four different lock levels are allowed that disable various aspects of the camera.

Custom functionality management is also achieved through each level by unlocking individual features according to operator-specific needs. This complete level of control is guarded by a daily password preventing anyone with a different vision from changing the camera settings and disrupting the overall project and workflow.

The Canon Barcode Solution for the EOS 7D Studio Version camera is an optional extra that allows the photographer to scan a barcode as a subject is captured. For example, it could be several classes at school being photographed. Each time a class is photographed, a unique barcode can be scanned. The scanned barcode gets added to the files EXIF data so that easier identification of pictures can be done when processing.

The new EOS 7DSV (Studio Version) Barcode Kit (EOS 7DSV and WFT-E5A with firmware change) will carry an estimated selling price of $ $2599. The EOS 7DSV (Studio Version) Body Only will carry an estimated selling price of $1829. Both are available by special order through select Canon authorized dealers.

Release dates are not known just yet, but should be available soon.
