Canon EOS 70D vs EOS 7D vs EOS 5D Mark III Comparison (video)

Exhaustive Canon EOS 70D vs EOS 7D vs EOS 5D Mark III comparison by Tony Northrup. Interesting because as far as I can judge from personal experience the EOS 70D (which I am playing around since a few weeks) is the new Canon APS-C flagship and for the time being there is no reason to get an EOS 7D instead.

Table of contents:

* Frames per second: 1:33
* Buffer and memory cards: 2:46
* Focusing: 9:07
* Image quality: 11:28
* Video: 22:43
* Other opinions: 30:44
* Odds & Ends: 35:00
* Winners & Losers: 36:15

More Sign of an Upcoming New Canon EOS M Camera

Canon Deals

Here at Canon Watch and on other dedicated sites we got emails confirming the upcoming announcement of new Canon EOS M cameras. As previously reported, there will be two new bodies, one entry level and another one more feature-rich or pro-oriented. A few days ago rumors surfaced suggesting that Canon could announce at least one new EOS M body (the entry level) by the end of this week, though as far as wednesday I did not get any serious confirmation for that.

What we know: One of the two new EOS M bodies will feature the same outstanding 20MP sensor of the Canon EOS 70D. But that’s all. Other report that Canon will also announce an EF-M 55-250mm IS lens when they will announce the first body. I did not get any rumor about that but such a lens makes sense and would fit well in the EF-M lens lineup.

The still excellent EOS M is available at heavily discounted prices. Look out for bargains at the following links: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, J&R, Digitalrev, Borrow Lenses, eBay

Taking into consideration of the new features that offered by Canon PowerShot G16 like the new image processor DIGIC 6, WiFi connectivity, and continuous shooting up to 9.3fps.

Canon EOS 70D vs Nikon D7100 Comparison Shootout (video)

Thanks to reader Thierry I can feature a pretty interesting and well made Canon EOS 70D vs Nikon D7100 shootout video (34 minutes) made by YouTube user MichaelTheMentor.  The video compares all the features of both cameras, it is a good guide for those who have to decide which one to get (the EOS 70D, obviously!) – it lasts 34 minutes but it is definitely worth to be seen if you are interested to learn about the EOS 70D. The EOS 70D is a damn well made all-round DSLR and I am glad Canon did finally deliver a truly innovative product for enthusiast and semi-pro photogs. Have a great day.
