Canon EOS 70D Dual Pixel Auto-Focus Specs Leaked

Digicame-info posted some information about the new Dual Pixel auto-focus featured on the upcoming EOS 70D. The text is machine translated, so use your interpretation skills:

  • Is used as a phase difference detection element is divided into two each photodiode sensor on Dual Pixel CMOS AF.
  • Possible to focus only on the image plane phase difference AF.
  • It is one pixel in the sum of both for the two split normally. Phase difference detection is possible over the entire surface on the hardware because it is the same structure as full, but the periphery truncate the frame-like reliability of the information because the fall large influence of aberrations of the lens.
  • Are not used for the time being in Kiss series computational load is large, because of the high cost still.
  • I do not extend to the phase difference AF traditional, but it supposed to be a farewell to the live view slow in terms of speed.
  • There is also a mode similar to the hybrid CMOS AF used in combination with contrast AF lens for the old.

Canon PowerShot SX280 HS Review (DigitalCamera Review, low noise levels)

 PowerShot SX280 Review
Canon PowerShot  SX280
Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, Digitalrev, eBay
DigitalCamera Review reviewed the GPS and WiFi-enabled Canon PowerShot SX280 HS, an excellent travel camera, with a price tag of $265/€299. The SX280 core specs:
  • 12.1MP High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 6 Image Processor
  • 20x Optical Zoom Lens
  • 35mm Focal Length Equivalent: 25-500mm
  • 3.0″ LCD Monitor
  • Full HD 1080p Video Capture at 60fps
  • Built-in Wi-Fi Connectivity
  • Intelligent Optical Image Stabilization
  • Hybrid Auto Mode
  • GPS Tracker

DigitalCamera Review liked the 20x zoom of the PowerShot SX 280 HS, and the excellent low noise levels (due to Canon’s conservative approach concerning sensor resolution). In the conclusion DigitalCamera Review writes:

The SX280 HS is a compact, well designed, sturdy, and easy to use point and shoot digital camera with a 20x zoom. Compared to its competition, the biggest difference would seem to be in the resolution arena with Canon sticking with a reasonable 12-megapixels.

[...]

The SX280 HS’s lower resolution sensor should record noticeably lower noise levels than its rivals [...]
