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)
  • 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?

Core specs:
  • 12.1MP High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 6 Image Processor
  • 20x Optical Zoom Lens
  • 35mm Focal Length Equivalent: 25-500mm
  • 3.0″ LCD Monitor
  • Full HD 1080p Video Capture at 60fps
  • Built-in Wi-Fi Connectivity
  • Intelligent Optical Image Stabilization
  • Hybrid Auto Mode
  • GPS Tracker

techradar reviewed the GPS and WiFi enabled Canon PowerShot  SX280 (price & specs). In the conclusion they write:

There’s plenty to like about the Canon SX280, but its standout feature has to be its excellent 20x optical zoom range accompanied by the well-performing digital zoom capability. Image stabilisation also does an excellent job of keeping images blur-free and making it easy to compose images too.


What we have here is an excellent and well performing compact camera that offers lots of flexibility both to beginner users and those looking for something a little more advanced.

It would also be a good camera for anybody looking to learn a little more about photography, since you could start on the fully automatic settings and work your way through the manual options.

The SX280 has a very good dynamic range:
