Canon EOS 70D Review (Digital Camera Review)

Digital Camera Review posted their review of Canon’s latest mid-range APS-C DSLR, the Canon EOS 70D. Image quality for stills is good, as much as the other features of the 70D, but where the EOS 70D really excels is the Dual Pixel Auto-Focus, especially when it comes to video. In the conclusion they write:

Switch the 70D into video mode […] and all bets are off. While the 60D didn’t offer continuous AF for video capture, the 70D does so, and does so with a vengeance. Continuous AF shooting video with the 70D is simply the best DSLR performance I have ever had my hands on, regardless of camera brand. I don’t shoot a lot of video with my personal DSLRs, but the AF system of the 70D has the potential to make even a video novice like me look like they know what they’re doing. Canon has had good video image quality for a while now in their DSLRs, but the introduction of this AF system raises their video performance to another level.

The pros according to the reviewer:

  • Good still image quality
  • Good ISO noise performance
  • Latest generation processing engine and technology
  • Touchscreen monitor offers quick control response
  • Exceptional DSLR video performance due to continuous AF
