Canon EOS 70D Developer’s Interview And Shooting Tips

The Canon EOS 70D is the most innovative DSLR Canon made since long. It’s the first to feature the game changing Dual Pixel AF (see also the video at bottom), has 7fps, very good high ISO performance, a tilt-able touch-screen, and much more. I have it and I love it. Even if I use more pro-oriented DSLRs, the 70D is my favorite camera. Together with the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 it makes a killer kit with a substantial “fun factor”. My favorite walk-around and everyday combination.

While searching for the developer’s interview about the EOS 7D Mark II, I found a similar interview about the 70D, along with some shooting tips on Canon Asia‘s site.

  • [Part 1] Realizing both 7 fps and over 20 megapixels count! Superb Viewfinder Shooting Performance of the EOS 70D
  • [Part 2] Live View of EOS 70D to become the other “viewfinder” – Unveiling the Dual Pixel CMOS AF

The shooting tips

Adorama has a EOS 70D bundle with PIXMA PRO-100 printer for just $799 (after mail-in rebate). Canon EOS 70D price check: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, Digitalrev, eBay

Upcoming Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L To Cost $3,000?

EF 11-24 f/4L

More confirmation surfaced suggesting we will soon see the EF 11-24mm f/4L. Here at CW we got a mention of a soon-to-come announcement a week ago, and there is a patent for a 11-24mm f/4 that was spotted in January 2014. The latest mention of this lens, which I am pretty sure will be announced in the near future, suggests it will have a retail price of $3,000. Hefty.

The image above was spotted and shared by digicame-info. All agree that the image is not photoshopped.
