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 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 18-135mm 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 28.8-216mm. The STM stepping motor helps to achieve near-silent focusing when used in conjunction with the Move 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. Pict-Bridge compatibility is also available and offers support for wirelessly printing photos from the camera on a Pict-Bridge-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 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens
Included with the 70D is the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 28.8-216mm. Covering a range of perspectives from wide-angle to telephoto-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 PMO (precision molded optics) aspherical lens element and one UD (ultra-low dispersion) element are 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 2 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.

    I do architectural photography and an articulating screen is a must. The Canon 70 D is the best camera out there today with this type of screen. Accuracy and speed of focusing has been improved significantly, and make this worthy of an upgrade on its own. I do a considerable amount of pole aerial photography for my architectural work and the ability to control the camera using my iPhone via the Wi-Fi function while the camera is 15 feet off the ground is a big help.

    The image quality and resolution was already good with the 60 D and remains excellent. There is a noticeable difference in image quality at high ISO when shooting JPEG, but not so much when shooting in RAW. Shooting at extremes high ISO is something I do on occasion and I get very acceptable results (under exposure always produce more noise than correctly exposed images at a higher ISO). If you need a camera that produces great results at high ISO this camera cannot give you the performance of the D-5 or 6 D.

    My only complaint is the way that Canon has rearranged the function buttons on the back of the camera. I was planning to keep my 60 D as a backup camera, but it will be very difficult to keep from pressing the wrong buttons when switching between cameras.

    I've gone through two of these cameras now and both have had the same focus problem issues. Using the basic auto mode and looking through the viewfinder yielded un-sharp photos. Apparently, the 19-point auto-focus system was flawed, not focusing on the points indicated in the viewfinder, but on something closer in the frame. For instance, focusing not on the person sitting at a table, but on the edge of the table lower in the frame. The results were fine using live-view mode. The first camera also had a flash problem in basic mode where it would often fail to flash in a low light situation. The flash was fine in the replacement camera, but besides the blurry images in basic mode, it would always choose a high ISO speed, like 1600, insuring that all the images were somewhat grainy. I'm mystified by all the positive reviews of this camera, as it appears there is a systematic focus issue problem. I'm guessing many owners don't even bother with the basic mode setting. I usually don't but my wife does and the camera was for her. The camera has many positive qualities, especially for video. And if you never use the basic mode then you'll probably love it.

        Comments about Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera with 18-135mm STM f/3.5-5.6 Lens:

        The Canon 70D is my second DSLR. I came from a Nikon D3200 and was looking for something with a better autofocus system and more FPS for taking pictures of my kids' hockey games. I got way more than what I was looking for and I am enjoying it 100%. The very first thig I noticed, was how much more intuitive the menus and settings are than the Nikon. I find that with the usw of both the primary and secondary wheels, along with the touch screen, I am able to change my settlings very quickly. Up until now, I have always shot in Auto mode or one of the preset scene modes, but with a little help with YouTube, and the ease of the functionality of the 70D, I am almost to the point where Manual Mode is my goto setting. At first, I thought the articulating touch screen was going to just be a gimmick, but I have found it to be very useful in navigating my way through the settings and in helping me with low or high positioning. Like the touch screen, I thoguht the WiFi feature was going to be nothing more than a gimmick, but it has come in very handy in previewing the shot as I try different settings, and especially with taking long exposure shots. The only thing I wish the phone app has is an interverlometer. I am currently using the following lenses: Canon 70-200mm 2.8L IS II USMCanon 85mm 1.8 USMCanon 18-135 3.5-5.6 IS STM (kit lens)I plan on getting a Conon 24-70 2.8L to replace the kit lens. I have been very pleased with the images that I have been able to produce from this camera. But even more so, I have been incredibly happy with the ease of learning how to become a better photographer with the Canon 70DI would highly recommend this camera who is ready to take the next step from basic DSLR photography.

            My 60D was stolen and upgraded to 70D. I use it to take photos of my boys athletic events and the fps feels a lot faster. No complaints!

              Comments about Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera with 18-135mm STM f/3.5-5.6 Lens:

              I'm not used to long reviews so i'll keep this short.1. This is my first DSLR camera, was confused between the full-frame 6D and this crop sensor 70D. I do not regret the decision of buying this camera.2. Swivel LCD screen helps in situations (like getting real low vs just swiveling the screen and take the camera low, saving your clothes).3. Wi-Fi definitely helps, plus instant transfer to your phone/tablet for sharing is just great!4. The 18-135 lens i chose with the body covers the wide and zoom spectrum pretty well. Although this doesn't compensate the longer zooms completely, something that can be compromised.5. Feels comfortable in hand, easy to use controls, top screen and shortcut controls are a huge plus!6. Battery life is also good, i exhausted one full battery life after fully using my 16 GB card 2 times over a huge span of time.Can't think of anymore. I'd definitely recommend this to a friend anyday..

                  Love the Canon 70D and the 18-35MM kit lens. Upgraded from a Canon T3i. Had the T3i for 2years. Wanted to upgrade for photo shoots and so glad i did. After much research I am so glad I went with the Canon 70D. B&H prices are hard to beat. Great service and shipping. Thank you B&H for all your help. I am one happy customer. You will not regret the Canon 70D purchase. Buy with confidence from B&H.

                            Comments about Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera with 18-135mm STM f/3.5-5.6 Lens:

                            I 'upgraded' from a Canon T1i to the 70D. I bought the camera a month before taking a 17 day cruise to the Far East. I took with me the 18-135 lens plus the Canon EF-S 10-22mm hoping to use that lens for when I needed wider shots during excursions on the trip (ex. at the Great Wall). Overall the 18-135 was used for most of my photos. Easier than switching between an 18-55 and 55-250 (lens I bought with the T1i). If you had to bring just one lens for travel/vacation this would be it. The vari-angle lcd screen proved useful at times when there were too many people in front of me and I could hold the camera over my head and get the shot. The continuous frame shooting was extremely useful to insure I manage to get one good shot when one can't take their time in order to get the picture. While I shot mostly in aperture or shutter speed modes, I found setting the camera in "SCN" and selecting "Handheld Night Scene" useful. The 70d will rapidly take several shots to produce a decent photo which at night with insufficient light this proved very useful during the trip. If you are just getting your first DSLR I'd suggest getting one of the canon rebel series (T5i for example) till you've learned enough about the basics of photography and have gone from using the basic shooting modes to shooting in Aperture, Shutter speed and Manual modes. There is a lot of features and capabilities that would not be utilized as beginner and by the time you're ready to use them, newer models with even more features or enhancements would be available. The lens you bought for say a T5i can all be used by the 70d (or future models in that line). I found it fairly easy to switch from the rebel series even though there are more controls and the some of the controls were relocated on the 70d. It was fairly easy to adapt. I love the wifi feature. It allowed me to connect my android smartphone and transfer smaller copy of some of the photos I had taken so I could email them to my friends. The 18-135mm is going to be my primary the lens I use when traveling - vacations. Its more than adequate to cover what I used the 18-55 and 55-250 previously. 99% of the time the 135 is sufficient (being really a 200mm on a full frame camera) so I didn't feel I missed some great shots because my lens didn't cover the 136 to 250mm range. Battery life was great. One "con" is if you are currently using to a compact digital camera or upgrading from a digital rebel, this camera will feel heavier. When I picked up the 70d I immediately noticed the weight but its not really a problem or a 'con' if you are aware of this and you're willing to carry a heavier camera around because it provides capabilities and features that lighter cameras don't. Go to a local store and try holding the camera before buying.

                                  I have purchased 10 of these cameras for my high school photography and film making classes.Generally easy to use, durable, standard Canon menus, lovely images.This product would be drastically improved with these two improvements--headphone jack to monitor sound when recording movies, and the ability to change f-stop in Av mode while shooting movies (you have to change to photo mode, change f-stop , then change back to movie mode IN APERTURE PRIORITY! (WHY!!)Still a quality camera for the money

                                  I got the 70d as an upgrade from the Rebel line. I am very happy with everything so far. I did have to learn some of the new features and locations that differ from the Rebel. The 18-135 lens is just right for about everything and produces a great photo. I would recommend this set up who is looking for a good mid level digital camera.

                                    Comments about Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera with 18-135mm STM f/3.5-5.6 Lens:

                                    I had a Sony A200 but had the opportunity to upgrade. Not wanting to spend as much for the full frame at this time...I decided on the 70D. At first, I didn't like it. The photos were not what I expected. But after researching and playing around with the settings, I am loving it! So don't give up if at first couple tries you want to return it. Give it a couple weeks and tweak it with the settings.

                                      I was ready to graduate from the entry-level DSLRs made by Nikon.The decision was between the D7100 and the 70D.I chose the 70D because of the greater number of cross-type focus points, the fully articulating touch screen and the various bits and pieces which came with the camera.
