The Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera features a 20.2 megapixel 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 in multiple frame rates with manual exposure and audio level control.

Serving live view in both still and movie shooting modes, Dual Pixel CMOS AF is a powerful technology that revolves around the incorporation of two photodiodes within each pixel to provide an expansive phase-detection focusing system. This system affords focusing benefits that are similar to how a camcorder works and as such can focus on subjects in an incredibly fast and precise manner. The benefits of this system are three-fold: the ability to focus quickly and smoothly; the ability to truly utilize the vari-angle touchscreen LCD monitor to its full potential; and the ability to utilize a wide range of over 100 EF and EF-S lenses. Also benefiting from Dual Pixel CMOS AF is the Movie Servo AF mode, which enables continuous auto focusing when recording movies. This focusing mode is especially useful for maintaining critical focus on moving subjects and for realizing the near-silent performance of compatible STM lenses.

The 3.0" 1,040k-dot vari-angle Clear View II touchscreen LCD monitor profits greatly from the advent of the 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 viewing in any lighting condition.

In addition to the LCD monitor, the 70D also features an optical pentaprism finder that can be used for eye-level shooting of still images. This Intelligent Viewfinder incorporates a superimposed LCD to provide an intuitive means for monitoring exposure and camera settings during shooting. While working with the viewfinder, an expansive 19-point all cross-type AF system is visualized for acquiring focus; integral to this array is a high-precision dual-cross center AF point that is compatible with f/2.8 and faster lenses.

Providing a wealth of additional functionality to the camera is integrated Wi-Fi connectivity, which allows for the instant and direct sharing of image files to an iOS or Android mobile device for sharing online. This functionality also allows for wireless remote control over camera settings, including exposure controls, focusing, and shutter release, from a mobile device when using the Canon EOS Remote app.

The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens is included along with the camera body to serve as a versatile everyday lens that encompasses a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28.8-88mm. The STM stepping motor helps to achieve near-silent focusing when used in conjunction with the Movie Servo AF mode and the optical image stabilization system helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF
Dual Pixel CMOS AF is a refined live view focusing technology that works to provide incredibly quick and precise auto focusing abilities that function in a similar manner to how a camcorder acquires focus. This system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of phase-detection gathering elements to help reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement. Dual Pixel CMOS AF is utilized during live view applications, for either still or video shooting, and enables an enhanced method of working with the vari-angle touchscreen LCD monitor.

When working with still imagery, this focusing system works to acquire focus quickly and accurately, making it ideally suited to shooting and tracking moving subjects and ensuring critical focus is attained with each shot. When shooting video, focusing is smooth and natural when changing from different subjects or different distances within the scene. Benefited by the Touch AF system, rack focus is possible simply by touching elements within the scene on the touchscreen in order to change focus in an intuitive manner. Subject tracking in movies is also heightened due to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system's ability to recognize subjects and maintain focus when working within changing or cluttered scenery.

This focusing system provides full and intuitive use of the vari-angle touchscreen monitor through its keen integration of touch controls for focusing and articulating design of the screen for viewing from any shooting angle. Additionally, Dual Pixel CMOS AF is fully supported by over 100 current and former EF and EF-S lenses to offer a wide spectrum of compatibility for both still and video applications.
20.2MP CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 5+ Image Processor
In regard to imaging capabilities, the EOS 70D features a 20.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5+ image processor to produce high-resolution, well-detailed still imagery and full HD 1080p video with notable low-light sensitivity. These two technologies work together to enable 14-bit A/D conversion, which helps to improve the quality and gradation of imagery by producing smoother, more natural-looking results with minimal image noise. A native ISO sensitivity of 100-12800 is well-suited to working in difficult lighting conditions and the processing power of the DIGIC 5+ processor also affords a wealth of speed to all aspects of the camera, including a full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 7 fps.
Built-In Wireless Connectivity
Integrated Wi-Fi enables remote control over the camera's exposure settings (aperture, shutter speed, and ISO) as well as focus and the shutter release from an iOS or Android mobile device when using the Canon EOS Remote app. With this app, you can wireless control the 70D from a distance and utilize live view monitoring from your mobile device for easier shooting from difficult angles and locations. Images from the 70D can be backed-up to other wireless-enabled Canon cameras as well as networked PCs and mobile devices for instant sharing via email or to social networking and image hosting sites. Full DNLA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatibility also enables transferring of files to other DNLA-compatible products like HDTVs and other wireless devices for remote viewing and playback. When working from the camera alone, files can also be transferred directly to the CANON iMAGE GATEWAY for expedited sharing to social networking sites without the need of a PC. PictBridge compatibility is also available and offers support for wirelessly printing photos from the camera on a PictBridge-compatible printer.

When used in combination with the optional GP-E2 GPS Receiver, geotagging and embedding of locational data into images' metadata is possible for plotting imagery to maps and for recording the elevation, direction, and Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) of each photograph.
Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens
Included with the 70D is the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 28.8-88mm. Covering a range of perspectives from wide-angle to portrait-length, this lens is a highly versatile tool for use in everyday situations for both still image and movie recording. Its design integrates an STM stepping motor that provides near-silent focusing abilities with smooth and precise control. Additionally, the optical image stabilization system helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed steps in order to benefit working in low-light conditions and with greater zoom magnifications. One aspherical lens element is also incorporated into the lens construction to help reduce chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range and an optimized lens coating has been applied, too, in order to lessen lens flare and ghosting for higher contrast, clearer imagery.
EOS HD Video
Full HD 1080p video recording is supported at 30, 24, and 25 fps as well as HD and SD video recording in multiple frame rates. Video is recorded using the high quality H.264/MPEG-4 AVC codec and manual exposure control is supported for greater refinement over the look and feel of recordings. Video clips are automatically partitioned after the file size has reached 4GB and both IPB and All i-frame compressions are available for use depending on editing and output preferences. Sound can be recorded using the built-in stereo microphone, or with an optional external microphone using the 3.5mm microphone terminal, and controlled manually across 64 levels. An attenuator function is also employed to prevent audio clipping for cleaner overall sound.

Movie Servo AF mode is available to provide continuous auto focusing when recording video and pairs especially well when using an STM lens to realize near-silent focusing during filming. Focusing is also heavily benefited by the incorporation of the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system to provide smooth, controllable focusing in live view with the added benefit of the Touch AF function.

The Video Snapshot mode can also be used to record short video clips, in 2, 4, or 8-second segments, and in-camera editing and music can be applied to these files for finalized results straight from the camera.
3.0" Clear View II LCD Monitor and Intelligent Viewfinder
A large, bright 3.0" 1,040k-dot vari-angle Clear View II touchscreen LCD monitor is integrated into the 70D to enable clear live view monitoring, image playback, and intuitive menu navigation. It's vari-angle design aids in viewing from high and low angles and the touchscreen control gives way to efficient navigation of menus and shooting controls, as well as precise control over focus points. The screen's construction incorporates an anti-reflective, smudge-resistant coating to provide clearer viewing, even in bright, sunlit conditions.

When working with still imagery and shooting at eye-level, an optical pentaprism Intelligent Viewfinder is available and provides 98% frame coverage. A superimposed LCD screen within the viewfinder provides pertinent exposure and camera information for more efficient eye-level shooting and also has the ability to outline AF points, grid lines, and an electronic level to aid in composition.
19-Point All Cross-Type AF System
When shooting with the optical viewfinder, a 19-point all cross-type autofocus system is used to provide a wide range of focusing coverage for acquiring focus accurately and quickly. The center point of this cluster is a high-precision dual cross-type sensor that supports focusing with f/2.8 and faster lenses in order to benefit focusing in low-light conditions. These focus points are configurable and allow homing in on specific elements within the frame to focus on, or, alternatively, all can be used to provide coverage across the frame.
iFCL 63-Zone Dual Layer Metering Sensor
An intelligent metering system works in conjunction with the autofocus system and independently analyzes focus, color, and luminance within the scene for the most precise exposure settings possible. The 63 zones cover the entire image area with great detail and the dual-layer design permits a wider sensitivity to different wavelengths of light. The dual layers are split into a red/green channel and a blue/green channel; which counters the red light sensitivity bias electronic sensors inherently have. A series of algorithms are employed to combine data received from both layers, with the resulting exposure reading being extremely accurate regardless of the shooting conditions.

This metering system employs evaluative, center-weighted, and spot metering methods to determine exposure, as well as allowing for a +/- 5 EV exposure compensation for greater manipulation of the determined exposure setting.
Built-In HDR and Multiple Exposure Modes
A High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode is available and allows for the creation of HDR images in-camera, reducing the time needed to manually overlay images in post-production. When using this mode, a series of bracketed exposures are made of the same image, then automatically composited, resulting in a photograph with controlled highlights, detailed shadows, and a long middle range of tones. This mode is especially useful when photographing scenes with a great deal of contrast.

Multiple exposures are also possible in-camera and up to 9 exposures can be recorded onto a single file using two distinct settings for control. When in Additive mode, this closely resembles making multiple exposures on film and layers each exposure; manual exposure compensation is required. Average mode layers the images and automatically compensates for the final exposure, eliminating the unintended possibility of gross under or overexposure. Multiple exposures can be recorded in either JPEG or RAW formats, and furthermore you can utilize an existing RAW image as a starting point from which to layer subsequent images, which can then be manipulated in real time on the LCD.
Scene Intelligent Auto and Special Scene Modes
Scene Intelligent Auto mode incorporates a number of Canon's automatic exposure technology together in order to output a well-refined exposure. Picture Style Auto, Automatic Lighting Optimizer, Automatic White Balance, Autofocus, and Automatic Exposure are all employed to intelligently analyze the scene at hand and produce the most effective exposure settings to clearly render your subject matter.

Special Scene modes also help to enhance your imagery by applying a system of corrections for use in more difficult lighting situations. Handheld Night Scene automatically captures four consecutive exposures, at shutter speeds fast enough to handhold, and layers them into a single frame. This allows you to effectively record images in darker situations without the need of a tripod or stabilization device. HDR Backlight Control works in the same manner and records a series of exposures at different values to ensure highlight and shadow values are not lost. These under and over-exposed images are blended to create a final image with a wider dynamic range.
Other Camera Features
  • Multi Shot Noise Reduction automatically composites four sequential exposures together in order to gain one exposure that exhibits minimal apparent noise.
  • Peripheral illumination, chromatic aberration, and distortion corrections are available and programmable through a menu of different available EF lenses. This lens data is used to automatically correct for each individual lens' traits to produce the cleanest image possible.
  • Seven Creative Filters are available to aesthetically modify the appearance of imagery in-camera, with the results visible in real time when working in live view. These filters include Grainy Black and White, Soft Focus, Fisheye Effect, Toy Camera Effect, Miniature Effect, Art Bold Effect, and Water Painting Effect.
  • Compatible with SD, SDHC, and SDXC, including Ultra High Speed (UHS-I), memory cards.
  • Compatible with eTTL II flash metering for use with compatible external flash units.
  • A built-in pop-up flash is available to provide additional illumination to scenes.
  • Silent shooting is a low-vibration shooting mode that slows and mutes the shutter and mirror reflex, enabling a more discrete method of capturing imagery.
  • In-camera RAW processing allows for the converting of RAW image files to JPEGs without the need for a computer. When using this function, 10 process variables-brightness adjustment, white balance, Picture Style, Auto Lighting Optimizer, noise reduction, JPEG image-recording quality, color space, lens peripheral illumination correction, distortion correction, and chromatic aberration correction-are available for fine-tuning the appearance of photos.
  • A Feature Guide can be employed to help explain and the specific functions of each dedicated camera control to help for properly applying a variety of settings while shooting.

            Comments about Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera with 18-55mm STM f/3.5-5.6 Lens:

            I did a great deal of research into what sort of DSLR I wanted to purchase. After class, I'd come home and search for hours. During lunch breaks at work, I would watch YouTube videos about numerous Canon cameras (I just prefer Canon construction).Now I'm no professional and I've never taken a photography class before. So I wasn't ready to jump into a full frame camera. I really wasn't looking to purchase a camera for over $500. However, once I saw the Canon 70D, I was deeply swayed into making a larger investment.This camera has everything any novice or experienced photo-enthusiast would want. From the 20 megapixel sensor it has, to being able to take high quality photos at higher ISO levels than the Rebel series, to the exceptional video recording abilities it has... it's really a no brainer that anyone will be in safe hands with this piece of equipment.A few of the things that I find the most useful from this DSLR; in no particular order, mind you:- Touch screen: The ability to rapidly adjust a number of settings from one screen, much like a smart phone, is incredibly convenient. This means the user can spend more time focusing on actual photography and less time on the technology.- High ISO Quality: One of the reasons I chose this camera over any of the Rebel models is because you can actually shoot over ISO 400 without any noise on this camera. I don't begin to notice any noise/grain on photos until it reaches beyond ISO 1000. Even then, if one isn't looking for noise, it's not very noticeable until after ISO 1600.- 19 Point Auto-Focus: I had no idea what this meant before purchasing the camera. All I knew was that some other "competing" cameras only had 7 AF points. However, once getting this camera in my hands, I was really grateful for all these mysterious points. Instead of have auto auto-focus on (where the camera focusing on the center of the frame), you get to choose exactly where you want the focus of the frame to be. It's a little tough to explain, but trust me, you'll appreciate it greatly.- Articulating LCD Screen: That's fancy for, "Screen that swivels around so you can take selfies." Actually, it's fantastic for everything, not just for selfies. For example, I wanted to get a photo that had a good deal of background/sky in it. So I had my tripod at the lowest level with my camera lens tilted towards the sky. This made it very difficult to tell where the frame was landing. That momentary difficulty was cut short though, when I pulled out the screen and swiveled it into a position that was convenient for me. Super handy.- 8 FPS (Frames Per Second)/ High Speed Continuous Shooting: Now I haven't really had to use this setting, but the times that I have, I've been relieved to have it. In the case of shooting my puppies playing, or anything where the scene is moving fast, this setting has allowed me to nail the shot I want that I would have otherwise not have gotten with less FPS.- Video: I never had any intention of doing any videography, but this camera has a nice dual processing chip that makes it so when you focus on an object, it looks very smooth and fluid. You know when you focus on something with your phone and the focus goes past the object then comes back in? This camera doesn't do that. It functions much more like a camcorder, in that when it focuses, you click on the object and the camera focuses in the same way your eyes naturally do. And if you use an STM lens in conjunction in video taping, you'll be able to have a fantastic piece of equipment to tape with.- WiFi: Who doesn't love having a device that can connect with other hardware via wifi?There are a number of pro's to this camera, and those are just some of the biggest ones I enjoy. There truly aren't any cons, which I'm hesitant to say, since that's a big statement. But honestly, I'm 10/10 happy with the Canon 70D. It will last this next decade easily.The stock lens it came with (18-55mm STM f/3.5-5.6) is some great stuff as well. I'm incredibly pleased with the quality of the glass for a stock lens. It silently focuses, and quickly as well.

            Comments about Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera with 18-55mm STM f/3.5-5.6 Lens:

            The 70D has many nice features & it takes very good pictures outdoors but it suffers from really bad noise in low light. Still pictures taken during video are often blurry & underexposed & are cropped to video proportions rather than the 3:2 format of regular stills. The flash will not fire for stills taken during video. The camera simply extracts one frame of the movie & does not downsample it to the 1080P format. There is a 1 sec break in the video for stills. This single frame is no replacement for a full 3:2 still frame taken where the flash fires & the shutter speed & aperature can be controlled by the user. The camera severely underexposes in back lit situations. You need in a good video light & even then, stills duruing video will often be blurry from the low shutter speed that the video uses. Actual videos look better because the high frame rate tends to fill in detail & hide grain that exists in any single frame. The camera has a large bright viewfinder & sharp rear LCD. It is heavy but balances larger lenses well & feels substantial & well made. If you use the camera outside or use a flash it takes very good pictures with good color. Outside videos are excellent. Available light still pictures & stills taken during video are very poor.

                I already owned a 60D and wasn't sure what to expect. The 70D is a vast improvement - ironically it was TOO good of an improvement for the green screen setup I needed it for.

                I can't imagine why anyone would buy anything more expensive to shoot video with than this camera - the quality just cannot be beat.

                  Comments about Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera with 18-55mm STM f/3.5-5.6 Lens:

                  The 70D has a multitude of features, and I'm only a couple of weeks into it, but it's been great so far. Through physical buttons or the quick control feature on the LCD monitor, many shooting parameters can be very quickly altered (e.g. drive mode, auto-focus mode & point, exposure, f-stop, shutter speed, iso, etc). There's a lot of information in the viewfinder and plenty of manual control to alter settings without taking your eyes away. Focus speed and accuracy through the viewfinder seems excellent. In live view with older lenses, e.g. an early Sigma 18-200mm DC-OS, there was some hunting (haven't had a chance to look into this fully yet). Live view is excellent through the kit lens, and note that live view has touch-to-focus and the ability to take a picture without having the camera to eye. The high speed frame rate is welcome. Video is a revelation moving up from 5-year old cameras. Some of the scene modes are surprisingly useful, e.g. hand-held night shot. This is a solid, robust camera. The pairing with the plastic 18-55mm kit lens is not ideal. I got it because I had some older lenses with other focal lengths. Consider looking at other lenses, if you don't already own options.

                      Right now, rate at a 5. Everything I have learned to use is great, but I am not even close to knowing 1/2 its capabilities and settings. Touch screen is great. Battery life is better than I expected. Flash makes a noise when I 1/2 compress the shutter button and I am not sure if this is normal or a problem. Overall very satisfied!

                        My first Canon and I'm stoked. After a lot of research, I got the 70D. It suits my needs perfectly and it's as good as I expected. Amazing in many respects. Lenses are a little 'colder' than the Zuiko's but I know how to fix that. Video is sensational. Also really good value.

                                Comments about Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera with 18-55mm STM f/3.5-5.6 Lens:

                                Read a lot about DSLRs and it came down to the Rebel T5i and the 70D. With the improved sensor and better video recording performance, this was an obvious choice for me. There were various other bonuses as well (too many to explain) but the benefits certainly justified paying a little more for a camera that I plan on growing into and learning how to great wonderful photos. Out of the box it's very easy to use and overall it's just a very solid camera.

                                This an upgrade after 10 years from the Digital Rebel XT, whic has been a grat camera. The 70D is so much more advanced that I may never use all the features it offers, but glad to have them available on this very versatile and well-made camera.

                                I use this camera for stills and video. I think you should buy this camera its awesome. The wifi is good but not great. But you should buy this camera.

                                  Comments about Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera with 18-55mm STM f/3.5-5.6 Lens:

                                  I love my 7D but I wanted a camera that had a flip out screen so I could get different angles. I love getting aerial shots of people dancing at proms and weddings as well as very low shots.

                                  After comparing the 70D and 60D, I decided on the 70. I was a little confused at the lack of a White Balance button but got used to the quick meneu via the touch screen in no time. Some of the buttons feel a little soft compared to my 7D but they respond well.

                                  The 70D has the look and feel of a higher end camera. It's worth the price and is great for a wide variety of photography types. It's not the quickest camera for action shots but it does a great job! It uses the same focusing system as the 7D but it also improves the focus speed. It's packed with features for both stills and video. It even give you descriptions of each feature on the screen to help you learn how to use the camera.

                                  I am a semi-pro photographer. I do scenics and some action. I shoot at f6.7 or f8 and ISO 400. The STM 18-55 and 55-250 are super sharp. The 70D with these lenses easily beets my 12mp original 5D's, up to ISO 400 at least. If you need faster then noise creeps in. Unless you are printing larger than 2x3 FEET there is NO need for full frame.

                                      Comments about Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera with 18-55mm STM f/3.5-5.6 Lens:

                                      I'm a mid-level amateur. The silent operation of the STM lenses and speed with which they focus are unbelievable. The camera's auto focus is equally unbelievable. I played with it by throwing a ball for my dog. When she retrieved the ball, I could set the focal point on her face and the AF system and image stabilization keeps her in perfect focus while she runs back to me. I didn't think I'd have much use for the touch screen, but I was VERY wrong. Making ISO, flash, drive, white balance adjustments, etc is very quickly achieved via the touch screen. The smart phone app is very cool, but does fall short just a little (no lock for bulb). With the app, you can view in live view on your phone, set/change focal points, set shutter speed, apperature, and ISO depending on the mode you're using on the camera. I would absolutely recommend this camera and BH photo to anyone! Thankyou BH!
