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.
