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

          I bought this camera, with the 18-55 kit lens directly form Canon on their Refurbished section. The camera really came looking like it was brand new. The only exception was that it came neatly packaged in a plain box.

          Everything you would expect a new camera to have came along with it.

          The only caveat I would have is that the battery was completely flat, which it shouldn't have been...

          It gives me several capabilities I previously haven't had. It is quite a feature upgrade from my 5D.

          I have a long history with Canon camera bodies and their lenses.

          I find this one gives me the best of both worlds. I quick responsive camera, with a great touch screen I can use. Great subject tracking for focus, great video capabilities, and the price was great!

          I wouldn't have been dissapointed if had paid the full price for this.

          I will include a test picture I took with this and the 18-55mm kit lens. An apple tree blossom on a completely overcast day.

          I see some softness, but for a kit lens, I can live with it...

          I used Dodge and Burn in photoshop to make it pop.

            I love this set. It contained what I needed to get started. I was switching from Nikon to Canon. The Camera shoots great and I love the 70-300 Lens its heavy which I like I know I have it in my hands. Works like a charm pictures are very clear. Love the touchscreen on the 70D. It was one of the things that drew me to this camera when I had borrowed a friends. Easy to change settings and find things in the menues

              I am a complete novice when it comes to DSLR cameras - in fact, this is my first. It has been fairly user friendly and I am going through the manual figuring out all it can do for me, which seems like a lot. It may not have all of the bells and whistles of the 5DMIII, but it fits my needs just fine, without the pricetag of the 5DMIII.

                I'm a photo enthusiast and have been saving for my first DSLR for a very long time. I chose the 70D over the 60D because of the dual pixel AF. So far it's everything I've wanted in a camera, I plan to do some video work and the quality is very nice.

                        I've had Canon Rebel T3, T2i, and now the vastly sophisticated 70D. I photograph race horses almost exclusively, and this model does exactly what they promised. Horses coming down the stretch are moving fast, and the focus is changing, but my 70D keeps up with it, giving me clear, well focused shots. With the zoom I can get the starting gate from across the track. And, I do not use a tripod.Glad I had two previous Canon cameras, so this one was easy to adapt to.Well worth the money.

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

                        The camera is great to start off doing DSLR video work and/or beginner photographer. The video quality is really good and the flip out touchscreen helps when doing handheld shots. I have been using the camera for some small video projects and the camera is holding up nicely. The auto-focus is spot on when shooting videos. I am pleased with the workflow and ability to easily use the video mode. As for stills, it has been working great. Color depth is decent and even with simple, cheaper lenses the pictures have been coming out good. Overall, a great little camera that is good as a secondary shooter or if you want to get into doing some video work.
