Superb Image Quality
A brand new APS-C sensor gives greater flexibility allowing the user to capture
images in higher resolution and crop into an image with minimal loss of picture
quality. Working in tandem with a powerful DIGIC 5+ image processor, colors are
reproduced accurately whilst tonal gradation is subtle and natural.
Outstanding Live View Autofocus Ability
Thanks to new Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, seen for the very first time in the
EOS 70D, Live View focusing has taken a big step forward with two photodiodes
per pixel, allowing phase-detection AF on the imaging sensors surface. This
Canon breakthrough technology allows users to shoot both still images and high
quality Full HD (1080p) movies of moving subjects, keeping them sharp at all
times " even when approaching the camera.
The Dual Pixel CMOS AF array covers 80% of the total image sensor area so even
off-centre subjects can be tracked with higher speed and greater accuracy.
Fast Image Processing
The benefits of the DIGIC 5+ processor are great and have already proved
themselves in Canon cameras, such as the EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 6D. The
processor has been designed to complement the EOS 70Ds CMOS sensor and enables
the EOS 70D to achieve fast shooting speeds of up to 7fps at full resolution "
capturing maximum detail, accurate colors and low noise, in all conditions.
Lightweight With Superb Handling
A composite construction made from polycarbonate resin with glass-fiber, the EOS
70D is built to withstand the rigours of todays modern lifestyle. Simple
controls and intuitive ergonomics make it quick and easy to handle while a
3.0 Inch (7.7cm) Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touch screen makes easy work of
Live View filming and composition with 100% field-of-view.
New Intelligent Viewfinder
With 98% coverage, 0.95x magnification and an exceptionally clear view of the
subject through the lens, the EOS 70Ds viewfinder performs beautifully and
offers at-a-glance information without taking attention away from the subject.
With information superimposed in the viewfinder the user can easily see the
chosen AF area and the active AF points while the subject is being captured or
tracked. As well as standard viewfinder information such as shutter speed, ISO
value and aperture, the EOS 70D offers additional shooting information and
warnings such as AE lock, exposure level/compensation, spot metering circle,
exposure warning, Auto-exposure bracketing as well as flash and composition
information such as a useful composition grid and an electronic level indicator.
Easy Touch Screen Control
Featuring a flip-out LCD screen, the EOS 70D is a very versatile tool for Live
View and HD Movie shooting. The screen is a 3-inch design and features 1040k
dots for very high-resolution viewing of your images and movies. With easy,
user-friendly functionality, the user is able to adjust camera settings quickly
and accurately with the minimum of fuss.
The screen also makes it easy to capture images from awkward camera positions
without having to strain yourself by over-reaching. High shots over a crowd or
low shots in a tight corner are really easy to achieve while focusing is easily
controlled thanks to three easily selectable AF options.
Continuous Full Resolution Shooting At Up To 7fps
Faster, more responsive continuous shooting at the highest possible quality is
made possible thanks to a shutter capable of up to 7fps. In conjunction with the
powerful buffer processing of the DIGIC 5+ processor, up to 65 JPEG or 16 RAW
images can be taken in one continuous burst with a UHS-I (SDHC) compatible
Built-In Wi-Fi For Unparalleled Connectivity
With built-in Wi-Fi connectivity the EOS 70D can be wirelessly connected to a
tablet computer or iOS/Android Smartphone to shoot remotely from alternative
viewpoints. Images can also be transferred via PictBridge over Wireless LAN
Live View And Full HD Movie Shooting
Like all current EOS DSLR models in the range, the EOS 70D features Full HD
Movie recording with the ability to shoot 1080p resolution movies at a variety
of frame rates and compression levels. With either auto or full manual control
over both exposure and audio levels the EOS 70D provides an exceptionally
powerful tool for shooting professional-looking movies. Thanks to Dual Pixel
CMOS AF technology, movie shooting with continuous focusing has never been
easier or more accurate with moving subjects tackled with precision, even when
moving towards the camera.
Wide Range Of Creative Options
Creative Filters such as Art Bold, Water painting, Grainy B/W, Soft focus, Toy
camera, Miniature effect and Fisheye help to expand the creative options of
photography. These filters can be applied to both captured RAW and JPEG files
and one image can be processed several times with different filters to see the
different effects. Along with the filters, a High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode
allows the EOS 70D to take multiple exposures of a scene and combine them
in-camera to deliver rich detail in shadow and highlight areas.
