Slight correction of the latest Canon EOS 70D rumor. It appears that the July announcement regards a brand new AF technology that Canon has developed. The new AF tech will first be featured on the Canon EOS 70D which is said to be announced immediately after the announcement of the AF technology.

Very interesting news, though there are no more tidbits about what makes up the new AF technology.

For the time being we are stuck with the EOS 70D spec list we posted back in April:

  • 18mp Sensor (Same as SL1)
  • DIGIC V
  • 6.5fps
  • SD Card
  • Wifi
  • GPS
  • 3.2″ Touchscreen LCD (No mention of swivel)
  • Magnesium Alloy Construction
  • Weather-sealed
  • Slightly larger than the EOS 60D
  • $1199 USD Body Only

It appears that we are definitely close to the announcement of the EOS 70D. Excited?
