A full set of specs have been leaked for the Canon EOS M7, the new flagship camera for Canon's APS-C mirrorless line, which will purportedly feature a 32MP sensor, in-body image stabilization, 4K video up to 60fps and 1080p video up to 120fps.

In addition, the Canon EOS M7 will also feature the same Dual Pixel AF II technology that debuted in the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 (though we wouldn't recommend holding your breath for the cheat code-like animal AF featured in those full-frame mirrorless models). 

On top of that, it is also claimed that the M7 will possess two SD card slots (albeit UHS-I), 12 frames per second burst shooting (with fixed autofocus) along with CLog. And all these heavy duty specs will be available for just $1,599 (£1,191 / AU$2,161).

That's according to a report by Canon Watch, with details originating from Vitaliy Kiselev of Personal View. The full specifications are as follows:

• 32mp APS-C sensor with DPAF II
• IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization, rumored to come to the EOS M lineup)
• Slightly renewed DIGIC LSI
• Cheap EVF, 2.36Mdots
• Dual SD Cards, speed limits are same as 4 years old cameras
• 12fps serial shooting, without AF active
• 4K from 24p to 60p, using all APS-C sensor sampling
• 1080p up to 120p (overheating at 120fps)
• CLog mode for marketing purposes
• $1599 price

There's plenty of information to parse there, but most of it tallies with what has been previously rumored of Canon's next M-series cameras, which were said to have "all the bells and whistles" and the details that haven't been heard before certainly marry with what we would expect. 

Of particular note is the fact that the camera's uncropped video does not overheat when shooting 4K 60fps (as the R5 and R6 do), but apparently does overheat when filming in 1080p at 120fps. 

With at least one new M-series body expected to be announced this year, we expect news on the Canon EOS M7 to keep trickling through…
