Canon EOS 70D Review (lots of AF test videos)

FacebookTwitterStumbleUponShare

Camera Labs is working on the Canon EOS 70D review, it is in progress but comes with lots of information and AF test videos. They write:

Putting aside the new Dual Pixel AF system for a moment, the EOS 70D represents a fair upgrade over its predecessor. It offers a more capable 19-point AF system, faster continuous shooting, built-in Wifi, broader viewfinder coverage, a touch-screen, the choice of movie compression, deeper bracketing and AF micro-adjustment. Considering the minor refresh that became the EOS T5i / 700D, the EOS 70D represents a significant move forward by Canon. Indeed it brings the 70D close to what’s offered by the EOS 7D, surpassing it in some respects, and having us speculate what the company has up its sleeve for a possible successor in the semi-pro category.

A Bit of Everything (and another Iceland video)

Alone in Iceland is a video shot by  using a Canon EOS 7D and the lenses listed below. André’s description:

Alone, I drove almost 3.500Km, hiked around 100km, met lots of people and have seen unbelievable landscapes. Putting those 19 days in four minutes and a half was the most difficult part.
Travelling to Iceland is an overwhelming life experience, and I definitely want to come back.

Gear:
– Canon 7D
Canon 17-55mm 2.8
– Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
– GoPro Hero 3 (only used in the car shots)
