Learn about the Canon EOS 70D
Take your first steps into the world of DSLR photography or upgrade your Canon 60D body with the Canon EOS 70D Digital SLR Camera. The Canon 70D adds several new features to its predecessor, including sensor-based autofocus and in-built wireless technology, with the ability to control the camera's exposure settings remotely using the free Canon EOS Remote App for iOS and Android, a useful additional feature that will be appreciated by photographers of all levels.
Whether you're shooting HD or SD video, this Canon 20 megapixel camera has Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which allows the Canon D70's autofocus to function smoothly; it also means the camera is able to focus faster, so you'll never miss a shot, making this camera the ideal choice for sports events and family gatherings.
One of the key highlights of the EOS 70D is its flip-out high-resolution 3.0” touch screen, which makes it easy to control stills and video using the screen rather than the on-camera controls. This is a feature only available on the latest cameras, and it's well worth having.
With its in-built Wi-Fi, the Canon EOS 70D Digital SLR Camera can be easily connected to a Local Area Network (LAN), allowing files to be seamlessly transferred between two compatible Canon cameras. You can even upload images using Canon iMage Gateway and print them, with no PC in sight! This feature ensures the Canon 70D will be the preferred camera body of choice for professional photographers shooting on location or anyone looking to minimize their kit – you'll wonder how you ever managed without it!
Sound and video
If it's full 1080 HP video you're looking to shoot, the Canon EOS 70D won't let you down there either, with features such as 64 sound recording levels, an in-built stereo mic and 3.5mm jack. SD video is supported too and the short 'Video Snapshots' feature allows you to record and combine clips, no editing required!
The Canon 70D offers photographers a range of shooting modes – the hand-held night scene mode allows users to take four shots using fast shutter speed and reduces camera shake, so you might even find yourself shooting without a tripod. The features on board are designed to make your life easier, so you can shoot in any light conditions, at any time of day with just the camera and no need for additional equipment. For all these modes and other features, users can refer to the Feature Guide on-board help system, a must for those acquainting themselves with using a DSLR for the first time.
The Canon EOS 70D body from Adorama comes with everything you need to get started, including a wide camera strap, body cap, eyecup EB, battery pack LP-E6, battery charger LC-E6, USB interface cable IFC-400PCU, EOS DIGITAL Solution Disk, full instructions and a Canon 1 year warranty. Why not purchase an extended warranty bundle from Adorama?
From the Manufacturer
The Canon 70D introduces a handful of key new features that promise improved video quality, much faster and more decisive autofocus, built-in Wi-Fi, and higher resolution. Let's take a closer look at the Canon EOS 70D
The big technology leap for the Canon EOS 70D is its sensor-based autofocus. Called Dual Pixel CMOS AF, this technology was made possible by reworking the design of the sensor. Instead of offering one photodiode per pixel, the 70D's sensor has assigned two photodiodes per pixel. This allows the camera to simultaneously capture light and perform phase-difference detection autofocus. What this means to the average user is that the camera should be able to focus faster and more accurately, and for full autofocus to operate smoothly and accurately while shooting videos.
A second big new technology (for Canon's APS sensor lineup) is the addition of built-in wireless technology. The camera's exposure settings, such as aperture, shutter speed and ISO, focus, and shutter can be operated wirelessly using an iOS or Android smartphone with the free Canon EOS Remote app. Users can shoot remotely from a distance, even in Live View mode and remotely review images stored on the EOS 70D from their smart phone or tablet.
Still images can be transferred between two wireless-enabled Canon cameras over a Local Area Network (LAN) and can be uploaded via Canon iMage Gateway and printed directly from a wireless PictBridge printer without the need for a PC.
The EOS 70D camera's 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor, the highest-resolution APS-C sensor to date, records 5472 x 3648 pixels and offers 14-bit signal processing for what Canon claims is improved tonal gradation. Canon says the new 5+ Image Processor will yield improved data processing speeds, greater noise reduction, and real-time compensation for chromatic aberration.
Canon claims the 70D will record up to 16,384 colors per channel thanks to its 14-bit analog-to-digital conversion, and the camera has a wide ISO range of 100-12800, expandable to 25,600 in H mode. The company claims improved noise reduction and better performance in low-light shooting.
HD Video Improvements
Canon's claim for the 70D is that its HD video performance rivals that of camcorders. The camera offers All-I and IPB compression, supports H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile, and automatically splits files greater than 4GB (FAT specifications) for extended recording without interruption. It offers the option of time coding during recording only (Rec Run) or at all times (Free Run), which is useful for multi-camera shoots.
There's a built-in stereo mic, 64 adjustable sound recording levels, and the camera has a 3.5mm mic jack. The camera can also record "Video Snapshots"-2,4, or 8-second video clips that can be combined into a highlights album without the need for editing.
Viewfinder and LCD
The Canon EOS 70D features a high resolution (over 1 million dots) flip-out touch screen which lets users control the camera for stills and video from the screen. The eye-level viewfinder is an optical finder with a superimposed LCD display that superimposes focus points, grid lines and other compositional tools as well as exposure information over the optical image-a feature that can be turned on or off.
Special effects and modes
The Canon EOS 70D offers a wide range of shooting modes and effects, including High Dynamic Range covering a range of plus and minus 3 stops, multiple exposure mode up to 9 images in RAW and JPEG, a handheld night scene mode that combines four shots at fast shutter speed to reduce camera shake, HDR backlight mode, and seven creative filters: Grainy Black and White, Soft Focus, Fisheye Effect, Toy Camera Effect, Miniature Effect, Art Bold Effect and Water Painting Effect. Each of these effects can be applied at three levels of opacity.
Other effects include multi-shot noise reduction: the camera captures four images in quick succession, merges and aligns them to reduce noise. A Lens aberration correction tool corrects for vignetting and color fringing. The camera has an on-board help mode called Feature Guide, which briefly describes each mode. It is compatible with the optional Canon GP-E2 GPS receiver.
The Canon 70D is commonly used for Family photos, Landscape/scenery, Low light, Sports/action, Travel, Video, Weddings, Wildlife and more.The Canon 70D is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Casual photographer, Photo enthusiast, Pro photographer, Semi-pro photographer among others.The Canon 70D is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Canon 70D: Easy to use, Excellent image quality, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Fast shutter speed, Good battery life, Good image quality, High ISO performance, Image stabilization, Large clear LCD, Lightweight/portable, Nice features/settings, Quick start-up time, Quiet, Simple controls/menu, Solid operation, Superior build quality and Tilt /swivel LCD

Just buy it, really
If you are looking for an SLR to use for both stills and movies, this is it. Wait no longer. This will be a short review, since I've only had the camera for literally hours, but I'm so impressed with it. The movie mode, along with the dedicated button for that, is so good I can't think of a way to improve on it. I started my Canon journey with an ELAN 7 film camera years ago, went to a 10D digital.

This will be a short review, since I've only had the camera for literally hours, but I'm so impressed with it. The movie mode, along with the dedicated button for that, is so good I can't think of a way to improve on it. I started my Canon journey with an ELAN 7 film camera years ago, went to a 10D digital. Was very happy with that, so next came the 40 D. Wonderful step up. Then upgraded to the 60D because I wanted to be able to use an SLR for movies. I was never really happy with the 60D for movies (wonderful for stills, though). Having to turn a dial to get into video mode was a pain, and the lack of autofocus turned out to be too much of a drawback to be practical FOR ME. Now comes the 70D! I'm in heaven! The ease of use is absolutely wonderful. Autofocus is incredibly fast and accurate for stills, and so smooth for video. Canon has hit a high mark with this camera. Right out of the box, I put on my most demanding lens, the 85mm F1.8. That lens has always given me fits to focus, since the depth of field is so small wide open. The 70D hits focus instantly and perfectly every time. I'm seriously impressed. I may never buy another camera. Bottom line, if you've been waiting for a camera for video and stills, wait no longer. It's that good.

Not for film, period.
This is a great camera for taking pictures, if you are considering this camera for videography it is a bad joke. I know by now you have seen all of the commercials and YouTube video's of how great the Autofocus is but it can't overcome the horrible aliasing that is prevalent in this camera. It is so bad I just threw out an entire days worth of shooting football games because I decided it wouldn't be horrible to tape in 60P. 24P looks fine, but if you expect to catch action 24P doesn't cut it....View full Review

I bought the HFG10 a few ears ago (sold it) due to lackluster performance, I bought the Sx280 and it shoots great video but goes dead after 10 minutes of use due to battery issues, I am throwing my hands up and returning this unit as soon as possible. DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA FOR VIDEO IT WILL NOT LOOK BETTER THAN WHAT YOU HAVE ALREADY, PERIOD. I am satisfied with my 60d and it has better video than the 70d, so what if I have to pull focus manually. Also the battery went dead before a one hour game was over so that is a deal killer also.

This camera amazes me daily!!! & I learn something new about this camera daily!!! I am not kidding at all. I owned the 60D & loved it, but the 70D just blows it away!!! The built in wifi is a real gift for ease of sharing pictures, & one of the main reasons I wanted this camera, but I was stunned when I realized that this feature is even more awesome than I thought it would be, & I think Canon should publish this more. I ordered a book so I could learn every single feature the 70D has & just today my husband got the Canon 430EX II flash for me. I have had a Canon SLR for years & I have never been happier with Canon & my EOS 70D!!!
I purchased the EOS 70D to keep up with the competition in the stock photo industry. There were specific features that I was interested in, including ruggedness, image quality, image size, zone focus, the new auto focus screen and the in camera chromatic aberration elimination feature. All the new features have performed splendidly, the camera is very fast and the image quality superb. I have not yet had an image rejected by and editor for any reason.
This is a wonderful machine ever I bought. Price according you get.
I had an XSi and a T5i. This is a big step up in the quality of workmanship. The live view focus is amazingly fast and accurate. Ultimately more accurate than the viewfinder. Makes live view shooting and video shooting a real joy. Dual dials make adjustments quick and easy. Ability to customize HDR, multiple exposures, etc. give great control. 7 fps are great. The only thing I'd like to see is giving the white balance its own button. Very happy to recommend this fine camera.
I use the camera for anything from vacations to assignment work (photographing architecture)to a lot of events in dark churches. I borrowed the 7D for a couple of weeks feeling sure that this was what I wanted next. There were certain things about it that I was not thrilled about so I borrowed (and then bought) the 70D. The 70D is more comfortable in my hand, I have small hands. I love the touch screen and got use to it immediately. As usual with all Canon cameras that I have owned, you can not go as high in the ISO as they claim before you get noise but I was able to get several good pictures at about 2000. I am still confused about the AF point. I like to put it on center and this camera keeps changing to what ever it wants. I will figure that out. The other complaint and it may seem really silly is that the pictures in the LCD are too good. I take the pictures in RAW and of course the camera shows the pictures on the back of the camera as JPEGs, already fixed up. It gives me a false sense of how good the picture is.
i just picked up this camera a few days ago. I switched from the t4i. If I would have known that the difference would be like night and day I would have done this a year ago. Admittedly I thought the transition would be nonexistent, boy was I wrong. The placement of buttons and even the power switch took a little getting used to it. After practicing with it for a few days I have gotten used to it. The focus speed of this camera compared to my old one is also amazing. I used to think my 50mm lens was loud and slow. It is definitely loud but not slow anymore. I did not realize that a camera change could make so much difference. My pics in low light are incredible. Ok I'm officially done salivating.
Just recently purchased the new Canon EOS 70D and this will be my 3rd generation Canon camera (started in 1986 with a Canon AE-1 Program, then EOS Rebel XT in 2005). So far it is everything I expected and more. Incredibly easy to use for novices (family) and advanced features that are right in my area of expertise. Most of my photography is outdoors with a focus on wildlife and after only one month, I am getting some of the best pictures ever and I contribute this to the camera, not me. Very happy with this camera and highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great versatile camera.
I have found the Canon 70D to be the best and innovative camera I have owned yet!
The 70D is truly a revolutionary DSLR. When taking photos, it packs in a great autofocus system and all the right features to make great use of my L-series lenses. Switch over to video, and the 70D's autofocus really shines. Paired with a new STM lens, this thing is more than just an incremental step forward... it is truly groundbreaking innovation. Forget mirrorless sensors... Canon is on to the future of DSLR videography with this camera. Seriously, WELL DONE.
I downloaded EOS MOVIE Utility 1.2 for Windows from URL: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/eos_slr_camera_systems/eos_digital_slr_cameras/eos_70d#DriversAndSoftware . One day later my internet experience was ruined by an INVASIVE MALWARE ADD-ON, "Ads by Mini," that is secretly attached to the aforementioned software. Very disappointed, Dave S. Durango, Colorado
