FacebookTwitterStumbleUponShare


Top rated plus eBay seller getitdigital (>42000 ratings, 99.5% positive) once again has a good Canon EOS 6D deal going on. Canon’s entry-level full-frame, GPS and WiFi-enabled EOS 6D is on sale for $1,619.99 (click here). You get the bonus items you see in the picture above. I guess the “no name” memory cards are pretty useless. However, the price is a bargain if compared to the regular $1899 you would pay otherwise.

Canon EOS 70D Dual Pixel Auto-Focus Specs Leaked

Digicame-info posted some information about the new Dual Pixel auto-focus featured on the upcoming EOS 70D. The text is machine translated, so use your interpretation skills:

  • Is used as a phase difference detection element is divided into two each photodiode sensor on Dual Pixel CMOS AF.
  • Possible to focus only on the image plane phase difference AF.
  • It is one pixel in the sum of both for the two split normally. Phase difference detection is possible over the entire surface on the hardware because it is the same structure as full, but the periphery truncate the frame-like reliability of the information because the fall large influence of aberrations of the lens.
  • Are not used for the time being in Kiss series computational load is large, because of the high cost still.
  • I do not extend to the phase difference AF traditional, but it supposed to be a farewell to the live view slow in terms of speed.
  • There is also a mode similar to the hybrid CMOS AF used in combination with contrast AF lens for the old.
