Canon EOS 70D Full Video Review (LearningCameras)

The video above is a 22 minutes review and test of the Canon EOS 70D by LearningCameras. It is a pretty good introduction to all the features of the EOS 70D.

I am still on travel in the US, so again I apologise for not posting as usual. However, got my EOS 70D today and even if I did not yet have time to try it out as I would like I am very satisfied with the first impression. Canon brought back to the XxD line a lot of features they took away when they released the EOS 60D three years ago (AF micro-adjustement, just to mention one). The things I like most so far: electronic level in the view-finder, AD micro-adjustement, solid build (though not as rugged as the 40D and 50D), flip screen, 19 points AF, WiFi, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF. I think Canon did also a great j0b with the positioning of all the controls and buttons: everything appears well positioned and designed. The touch screen works fine (if you want to use it, I do not).

The EOS 70D is for sure the most innovative camera Canon made since years, a truly well designed piece of gear. I am not into videography but I am sure videographers will love the EOS 70D.

Canon EOS 70D Reviewed by ephotozine

More and more Canon EOS 70D reviews show up. This time it is UK based ephotozine to provide a review. They outline the excellent colours and image quality, very good battery life (920 shots, although if not using live view, which consumes more battery), AF micro-adjustement, the robust body, and obviously the Dual Pixel CMOS AF (among other outstanding features). An excerpt from the conclusion:

For videographers the 70D with touch screen control over focus point will be extremely appealing, and the microphone socket is useful, although no doubt some will wish for a headphone socket as well. For those that are looking for a true Digital SLR with an optical viewfinder, combined with very good live view, and excellent video focus (with STM lenses), the Canon EOS 70D delivers, whilst also delivering that all important Canon feature: High Image Quality. The Canon EOS 70D delivers excellent colour and has almost everything you could wish for in a Digital SLR.

But the EOS 70D is impressive also if you are just interested in shooting stills. I want one soon! :-)

The Canon EOS 70D is already part of a lens bundle discount program at B&H, with discounts up to $300. Click here to check all offered bundles.
