Canon’s solid midrange SLR has historically been a great choice for serious enthusiasts and even professionals looking for something lightweight but with more substance than entry-level models. The EOS 70D brings something even the most demanding users will sit up and notice: Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, suddenly making it a very attractive choice for any user who needs AF during video or Live View shooting. It’s by far the best EOS to date in those areas. And it’s a powerful package for traditional stills, with 7 fps capability and the same 19-point AF sensor for eye-level viewing as the EOS 7D.
- 20.2 million pixel, APS-C size CMOS sensor — combined with DIGIC 5+ processor and excellent image quality, even at higher ISOs
- Powerful AF: 19-point AF with latest focus-tracking algorithms for traditional still-image shooting and incredible new Dual Pixel CMOS AF for smooth, responsive AF during Live View and especially video recording
- Strong basic specs — 7 fps, speeds to 1/8000, x-sync to 1/250 — make it perfect for advanced applications where size/weight reductions are important
- Full HD 1920x1080p video recording capability at 30/24/25 fps; up to 60 fps at HD 1280x720p recording; choice of IPB or ALL-I in-camera video file compression
