      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.

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

      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.

        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.

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

        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!

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

              I was looking to upgrade from my Canon 50D, which I loved. I used to buy all Nikon but just got fed up with their prices. The Canon 70D is one of the easiest and best cameras for the price period. Once I had searched for the camera on B&H, I kept getting offers and one I could not resist. I recommend B&H Photo to anyone who is buying camera equipment.

              I have found the camera easy to use and takes incredibly clear shots. It is very surprising to me how little light the camera requires to take a great shot. Great camera and a great price.

                        I just recently purchased this camera. I used it to take photos and a movie at Longwood Gardens. I used an 18-55mm IS STM Canon Lens. The photos and movies came out very well. The Canon new invention for the movies light meter readings worked very well, and this was my first use with the camera. It also has many other features like a grid on the screen if wanted and a built in level. The light meter is also improved.

                          This camera is awesome! loving the built in HDR feature, however nice tripod is necessary in order to fully take advantage of this option. It is really nice that the screen can fold out and back in for protection when storing or traveling. Also the clarity of images is absolutely amazing! Great price and bundles with this camera here a B&H, along with fast delivery. Would definatly recomend this camera for anyone looking to take their photos to the next level!

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

                          After long time considering 60D but it was already 2 years old at that time when I wanted to upgrade from T2i (550D), so I went with T4i, 2 models newer. Now 70D has finally came out after 3 years, I was ready to move to mid-range. I was very pleased. It is neither too big nor is it too heavy, especially for a short person with small hands. Price is considerably fair. Data display is one reason I moved away from entry level to midrange, it is more versatile. Excellent for video, if you are into this. Overall, I'm happy wit 70D.
