The Next Generation in Live View AF.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF
The Canon EOS 70D features Canon's all-new Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a revolutionary leap forward in speed and accuracy that unlocks the potential of Live View shooting. This game-changing technology will forever change what is possible with a DSLR camera

Shoot Video Like a Camcorder
The benefits of the groundbreaking Dual Pixel CMOS AF are clearly evident in video shooting, where bringing scenes and subjects into focus is a critical element of the final composition. On the EOS 70D, Dual Pixel CMOS AF helps ensure focus is achieved naturally and precisely, even when switching between subjects. And, combined with the predictive power of Movie Servo AF, subjects in motion are smoothly and consistently tracked - once the EOS 70D locks focus, it doesn't let go. Plus, with the shallow depth-of-field afforded by EOS optics, your video gains a cinematic ambience.

Plus, with the shallow depth-of-field afforded by EOS optics, your video gains a cinematic ambience.

The Genius of Pixel Based AF
Dual Pixel CMOS AF is a cutting-edge Canon technology, made possible by a sophisticated redesigning of the CMOS sensor. Traditionally, image sensors have one photodiode per pixel, but the CMOS sensor on the EOS 70D has two photodiodes per pixel, enabling each pixel on the sensor to both perform phase-difference detection autofocus and capture light - a first for EOS cameras. With phase-difference detection AF, autofocus is achieved quickly and easily on the camera. This unique AF system enables autofocus on 80% of the image plane, vertically and horizontally, and helps ensure virtually no loss in image quality.

Sophisticated Wireless System.
The simplicity and convenience of wireless technology, built-in The new EOS 70D incorporates cutting edge wireless technology right into its compact design. 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**. Using a smartphone with the EOS Remote app** installed, you can shoot remotely from a distance, even in Live View mode, for those difficult-to-capture shots; you can also review images on the EOS 70D without having to take it out of the bag, and easily transfer and save images directly from the camera to a smartphone. Full DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatibility means easy sharing between the EOS 70D and other DLNA products, like HDTVs, smartphones and more. Still images can even be transferred between two wireless-enabled Canon cameras over a Local Area Network (LAN). Images and video can be uploaded instantly to CANON iMAGE GATEWAY# for easy sharing on social networking sites, and photos can even be printed on a wireless PictBridge certified printer without the need for a PC. Remarkably, the EOS 70D has all of these wireless features without the need for any additional accessories; they're built right in!

Amazing Capture and Processing Power.
20.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor Offering the highest pixel count of any APS-C sized sensor in EOS history, the EOS 70D camera's 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor records a massive 5472 x 3648 pixels, perfect for even the biggest enlargements and offering enough resolution for significant cropping while maintaining the detail and essence of the particular scene. 14-bit signal processing ensures excellent tonal gradation and a wide ISO range of 100-12800 (H: 25600) ensures excellent image capture even in dim lighting situations. The EOS 70D camera's image sensor combines with Canon's powerful DIGIC 5+ Image Processor for improved data processing speeds, greater noise reduction, and even real-time compensation for chromatic aberration.

14-bit A/D conversion
With 14-bit analog-to-digital conversion, the EOS 70D captures and records images with remarkable gradations and detail in subtle tones and colors, resulting in more realistic and detailed images. By recording up to 16,384 colors per channel, the EOS 70D ensures that the fine detail found in subjects like foliage, sky and water are preserved and recorded with a tremendous level of accuracy, ensuring gorgeous results.

ISO 100-12800 and expandable to 25600 in H mode
Thanks to its DIGIC 5+ Image Processor, the EOS 70D features an expanded ISO range of ISO 100-12800 (expandable to 25600 in H mode) that makes shooting possible in situations previously unthinkable without flash. The EOS 70D, with the DIGIC 5+ Image Processor's remarkable noise-reduction technology, performs brilliantly in low-light shooting. Used with one of Canon's EF or EF-S lenses with Optical Image Stabilizer, the EOS 70D can record beautiful images even when light sources are scarce.

High speed continuous shooting up to 7.0 fps
Capable of shooting up to 7.0 fps during continuous shooting, the EOS 70D is a perfect camera for quick action. Canon's remarkable shutter, combined with speedy, sophisticated electronics, ensures instant response and performance. A rapidly occurring scene can be captured moment by moment, second by second, so that even the briefest of opportunities are captured in perfect clarity.

EOS Full HD Movie mode with Movie Servo AF and 3-10x Digital Zoom at Full HD resolution The EOS 70D captures HD video with an impressive level of sophistication, offering phenomenal performance on a DSLR camera. It offers both All-I (UHS-I memory card is required) 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. It also features improved sound recording adjustment capabilities; the EOS 70D has an internal stereo microphone for enhanced audio capture and a wind filter feature to reduce wind noise when shooting outdoors. Sound recording levels can be manually (up to 64 different levels) or automatically controlled, while a built-in attenuator is also provided to reduce audio clipping. For more advanced audio recording, the EOS 70D is compatible with many third-party electret condenser microphones with a 3.5mm diameter plug.The EOS 70D also boasts the advanced Movie Digital Zoom, allowing you to magnify the center of the image by approximately 3x-10x when Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution is set.

The EOS 70D features Movie Servo AF for continuous autofocus tracking of moving subjects while recording video. Combined with the camera's Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, even fast subjects remain crisply in focus. Autofocus is smooth and continuous, and quiet when recording video using one of Canon's STM lenses. The revolutionary performance of Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF System, the predictive power of Movie Servo AF, and the pleasing depth-of-field provided by the EOS 70D's optics make it possible to accomplish stunning, cinematic video capture, easily.

The 18-55 IS STM lens is a gem, very sharp, decent color and contrast, fast focus and silent operation, great IS and is also very lightweight. I can get 1/5 sec exposures that are sharp consistently. Do not confuse this lens with the other Cannon 18-55mm IS, there are a few different versions. The newest one will say IS for image stabilization and STM for the focus motor technology. I am amazed how good this lens is. My only concern is such good image quality at this price point could erode the value of my collection of L series lens that I paid over thousand dollars a piece for.

Very disappointing focus issues

By

from Santa Fe

I have owned dozens of Canon EOS cameras but the 70D has a widely reported focusing defect when shooting with wide apertures. Unfortunately I didn't learn this until I purchased a Canon 50mm f/1.4 and started shooting with open apertures. Too late to return the camera, which I would do if I could. There are dozens of studies and tests on the internet which identify this problem but there is no reported solution anywhere. Canon has not acknowledged the product issue so no help there. Don't buy this camera if you ever expect to shoot wider than f/5.6 and don't want to have to manually focus all photos.

I waited a long time to buy this beause I wanted to see what the 7D mark II was going to be like. I really was looking for the articulated viewing screen as I do a lot of low level photography. Sorry, the 7d mark II didn't have it. However, I love this camera. It has a lot of reallly cool fun features that I enjoy experimenting with

Love It!

By

from Atlanta, GA

This is my first DSLR camera and I love it. when purchasing I have reviewed several cameras and got feedback from a lot of photographers. some of the features that the 70D has are great selling points for me. example, the Wi-Fi shooting and being able to take a picture and within a few minutes send it to my phone and post it on social media. this feature has also saved me from having to buy a remote shutter release because I can make changes and take control of the camera from the free app. the size and build of the camera are solid and perfect size for my hand. I purchased the camera to shoot photos underwater and have also purchased the housing required. Takes great photos and doubles as my walking around camera because of the high quality and ease of use. I have purchased several canon lenses now and they are all excellent quality. Great combination Canon glass with Canon camera. I am still learning to use the camera but I get better every day, love the file size of the raw format and touch screen for moving around and checking to ensure you got the shot. I will be a long time customer of Canon and I am now looking to purchase a full framed camera now that I know what I am doing.

EOS 70D

By

from Palm Coast FL

Just got a EOS 70D replacement for my exhausted and now ancient, EOS 10D. While I knew, being many generations advanced, the 70D would be quite superior to my old camera, I am still greatly impressed with some of those changes. For one thing, I have poor eisight and I really like the new image control selection knob on the top left. The icons are clear enough for me to know what they are at a glance and I really like that it locks with the push button on top. On my old 6.3mp, 10D, I would often change the selection inadvertently. Also with the 10D's 6.3mp sensor, I used to have to carefully compose shots when I took them because cropping was very limited. Now, though I still compose carefully, the 70D's 20mp sensor allows me far more latitude in composition and I miss fewer good shots. The low light performance is excellent too and the higher ISO settings don't get nearly as grainy as my 10D did. The old 10D faithfully took nearly 150K images for me but it is now getting a much deserved rest. The 70D, is a dream machine.

Terrific Camera

By

from Eastern Oregon

First off, I am new to DSLR camera's but, I do have considerable experience with "point and shoot" and video camera's of various makes and models. I am impressed with the quality of this camera and the 18-135 and 50-250 IS STM lenses; along with the relative ease of learning to use these systems I have found it easy to produce wonderful, clear pictures even under the stresses of a new learning curve. I have done much research and settled on the 70D mainly for the fully articulated LCD and professional setting options as I didn't want a point and shoot version of the dslr. With less than 1000 shots taken; I am mostly on Manual controls with an occasional use of AV and TV settings. This is not to toot my own horn but to convey the ease at which this camera makes it possible to learn the concepts of photography. I love the fully articulated LCD and that it is a touch screen adds to its convenience of use. I find the over all lay out of all the function buttons convenient and easy to learn and to use. I love this camera and even with my limited experience; I can't be more pleased with the quality photos I can produce with it; and that I really didn't need to rely on the Auto function for good photos is a major plus. I think this is a terrific mid level camera for the enthusiast moving up possibly on their way to a Full Frame DSLR system. I have shot a limited amount of video; and it has very good clarity but at this point I have not shot enough to comment on this aspect of this camera.

Questions about this item:

Anna O  I am in England and am wondering whether it is worth uying from the USA as the current for the charger will e different. Is this easy to get around?
TOM G  That is a good question. I will be going to Europe soon and had planned on using an adapter that plugs into the wall socket and then plug my electrical devices into that. They are fairly inexpensive and I assume this solution would work because I have charged computers this way. Since you raised the question I will send an email to Canon's customer service before I go and will ask them the same question, but that may be a few months from now. Sorry I could not be of more help. Best regards, Tom
Shopper  Is this a brand new or re-furbished?
ANDREW O  I got it brand new. They may sell them refurbished.

TOM G  That is a good question. I will be going to Europe soon and had planned on using an adapter that plugs into the wall socket and then plug my electrical devices into that. They are fairly inexpensive and I assume this solution would work because I have charged computers this way. Since you raised the question I will send an email to Canon's customer service before I go and will ask them the same question, but that may be a few months from now. Sorry I could not be of more help. Best regards, Tom
