The Canon 8469B009 EOS 70D 20.2MP Digital SLR Camera Body plus EF-S 18-55mm IS STM Standard Zoom Lens features an APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5+ image processor to ensure high-resolution images and excellent low-light sensitivity. Both the sensor and processor work together to produce well-detailed, clear imagery that exhibits natural tonality and color gradations with minimal noise when working in difficult lighting conditions. The processor also provides notable speed throughout the camera system, including the ability to record up to 7 fps in full-resolution, quickened AF speeds, and full HD 1080p video recording. The 3.0-inch Clear View II touchscreen LCD monitor profits greatly from the advent Dual Pixel CMOS AF system and its ability to utilize Touch AF focusing for finely controlled selection of the point of focus. The monitor’s vari-angle design also enables more efficient shooting and viewing from both high and low angles and an anti-reflective, smudge-resistant coating allows for clear well-detailed viewing. The included 18-55mm IS STM standard zoom lens features the optics, AF and image stabilization necessary for shooting in any number of situations.

    Canon 70D First Impressions, August 30, 2013
    S. Burg (Pasadena, CA US) –

    This is going to be short, since I’ve not had the chance to do a whole lot of shooting as yet. Consider it a “just out of the box” impression. I already have a Canon 5D Mk III, and a number of L series lenses. I wanted a “backup camera” for video shooting, and I was intrigued by the new auto-focus system offered on the 70D.

    So far, I’m extremely pleased with this camera. The 18-35 mm kit lens gives a lot of range, and I tested the camera out with my other lenses. The L series lenses work very well, and auto-focusing is fast, smooth, and doesn’t search around much even in very low light. The camera is not as heavy as the 5D Mk III, but feels solid enough, and not all that different in the hands. Even with the 70-300mm f4-5.6L IS USM zoom – my heaviest lens at the moment – the camera feels surprisingly balanced.

    The crop sensor obviously changes the effect of the lenses, but having a full sensor and a crop sensor both, it’s like having 2 sets of lenses. My 70-300mm zoom now has an effective reach up to 480 mm (on the Canon 70D) due to the crop factor of 1.6. To me, this is kind of a bonus, though not in itself a reason to buy the camera. Smaller sized sensors result in an apparent increase in focal length, and a greater depth of field, but this is a generalization and each lens has its own properties that affect the image as well. Read the reviews of individual lenses when considering how each one reacts to different types of camera bodies.

    The main thing to take note of is that while the Canon 70D will accept all the EF and EF-L lenses, it is designed to use the EF-S series lenses as well. In fact, the EF-S series lenses are custom tailored specifically for the Canon 70D and (as far as I know) other APS-C crop sensor cameras made by Canon. These lenses – and the kit lens is one of them – will not work on a full frame camera like the Canon 5D mkIII; the rear element extends back into the camera body in a way that makes it impossible to attach lenses of this series to full frame sensor cameras. Even if they could be attached, I suspect the captured image might suffer from serious vignetting and other problems.

    For a thorough understanding of how the APS-C, full frame and other types of sensors interact with various lenses, I highly recommend doing some research on the web. There’s a lot of good information out there, and this is a fairly involved subject that I don’t even want to attempt to dive into here 🙂

    One thing I couldn’t figure out before having the camera in my possession deserves a mention. This is my first experience with a fold-out LCD screen on a DSLR, and I had no idea how the display would deal with flipping around 180 degrees. Would it be upside down? This was the first thing I tried, and the screen auto-flips when it is rotated. Maybe everyone else already knows this – but I didn’t! Anyway, the fold-out display is a great feature, and it also folds face-in to protect the display when not in use.

    The ability to touch various points on the LCD display while in Live View or shooting video, and shift focus while shooting is – to me at least – worth the price of admission. If Canon eventually updates the 7D and/or the 5D Mk III, this functionality would be most welcome!

    Purely as a “gut reaction” – I really like the 70D immensely. And it seems a very good value for the price. This may actually become my preferred “walk-around camera, though time will tell.

    EDIT – 10/22/2013: I’ve spent a lot more time with the camera now, so I can add to my earlier comments.

    While I purchased the 70D mainly for shooting video, I recently used it to shoot bracketed exposures for HDR (high dynamic range) panoramas. A friend of mine had a nodal camera head (The “Ninja” head) which allowed for precise rotation of the camera to cover a full 360 degree field-of-view. The Canon 70D allows for up to 7 bracketed exposures via the AEB controls. The plates were shot in the RAW (CR2) format, using the kit lens, and stitched together using PTGui software.

    After some initial trial runs, where we ironed out the kinks in the whole process, the results were exceptional. For those who may be wondering “why do you want a 32 bit HDR 360 panorama at 10k-16k resolution?” it is used to create realistic lighting and reflections in a 3D/CG software (i.e. Modo or Maya, for example). The 3D scene can be lit entirely by the 360 panoramic image, producing a very convincing result.

    At any rate, the Canon 70D delivered terrific results doing something I didn’t even foresee when I bought the camera. I will try and upload some of the tests (where the photographic panorama serves as both background and light-source) if I can figure out how to do so on the Amazon site.

    EDIT – 11/9/2013: A note to anyone who intends to shoot green screen (for color keyed composites) or do precise color grading in post production: The…

    Excellent Value, October 31, 2013
    Michael DiDomenico (WINTER SPRINGS, FL, US) –

    I just received my new CANON 70D a week ago. I have been reading every review that has come available on the Internet and also You-tube. I have also talked to a few Professionals who use CANON equipment to get their view. I will not bore you with all of my talk, but I will give you some things that I have found out since receiving my unit.
    This is a huge jump from my 60D. It has the 7D – 19 point AF and all cross point. It makes for a fast AF and cleaner photo’s. I am amazed at how many more AF points lock onto a subject when using the auto focus sequence.

    I would think these go hand in hand, and they work quickly and well. The camera is quick to focus, acquires moving subjects and allows for great photo’s. Very impressive upgrade from the LIVE VIEW on my 60D.

    I shot a video today while at the zoo and the clarity was excellent, so was the color saturation. Full HD is by default and it is excellent for what I will use it for when traveling. I also was not using one of the new STM lenses and when zooming in and out, there wasn’t any noise on the video. I was not using an external mic.

    I have tried all of the scene modes and found them to be a good selection. I like the HDR mode and also the multiple photo mode, something I guess people have been interested in seeing from CANON. I have been very impressed with the camera. It is a good upgrade from the 60D, it has much more to offer and the higher PIXEL Count shows up in the photo’s, as does the increased FPM. 7 FPM seems so much faster than the 5.3 of the 60D.
    I have already recommended this to a couple of my friends who are looking into upgrading their equipment.

    I wanted to let people know that I am getting about 950 photo’s and about 25 minutes of video per battery charge. I am not using Wi-Fi right now.

    went to the NUCLEAR COWBOYZ show and shot over 45 minutes of video and about 150 stills. Many of my video was at ISO 6400 as this was an indoor event. Outstanding quality with my 24-105mm, f/4, ‘L’ lens. Most of the stills were at ISO 6400-12800 and shot in sport mode for high speed. The quality is very good in the stills [I do not blow up to 10 times], and the video’s were very good. I was amazed and the people who watched my video’s in HD were surprised. Once more I know that I have a very good camera.
