Review


From dpreview.com:

During the early days of digital SLRs, Canon was pretty much the undisputed leader in CMOS image sensor technology. Almost every new EOS model came with an increase in resolution and high ISO range, and when the EOS 7D appeared in late 2009, the company had progressed from 3MP to 18MP, and ISO 1600 to ISO 12800, in just over nine years. But since then Canon's APS-C cameras have all sported variants on the same basic sensor design, to the extent that you could be forgiven for wondering what on earth their engineers were doing all day. Now we know.

The EOS 70D is a mid-range SLR for enthusiast photographers that from the outside looks like a sensible, indeed desirable upgrade to the EOS 60D. It borrows many of the best bits from Canon's existing SLRs, including the autofocus sensor from the EOS 7D, the fully articulated touchscreen from the EOS 700D (Rebel T5i), and built-in Wi-Fi from the EOS 6D. But on the inside it sports an entirely new sensor that is, potentially, revolutionary. It offers 20.2MP resolution, but uses a 'Dual Pixel CMOS AF' design in which every single pixel is split into two separately-readable photodiodes, facing left and right. This means that in principle they are all capable of phase detection autofocus in live view and movie mode.

On-chip phase detection is nothing new - we first saw it in the Fujifilm F300EXR back in 2010. Since then it's been adopted in one form or another by most manufacturers, with arguably its most successful implementation coming in Nikon's 1 System mirrorless models. But because until now it's used relatively few active pixels scattered sparsely across the sensor, it's had practical limitations, often only covering a restricted area of the frame and struggling once the light drops below outdoor daylight levels. Canon says that its Dual Pixel AF system, in contrast, works across an area 80% of the frame width and height, in light levels as low as 0 EV, and at apertures down to F11. This means it could well be the most capable live view autofocus system we've yet seen on any type of camera.

We'll look at the technology behind the EOS 70D's live view AF in more detail later, but let's not forget that it has to work as a conventional SLR too. To this end it uses the same 19-point AF sensor as the EOS 7D for viewfinder shooting, but with slightly simplified control options in firmware. It can rattle shots off at 7fps for up to 65 frames in JPEG or 16 in Raw, and its standard ISO range covers 100-12800, with ISO 25600 as an expanded option. Image processing is via the DIGIC 5+ processor first seen in the EOS 5D Mark III.

In terms of control layout the EOS 70D is a logical evolution of the EOS 60D, adopting many of Canon's intervening updates and improvements. So it offers a full set of external controls to operate most key functions, and Canon's well-designed Quick Control screen to cover pretty much everything else. It also adopts the superb touchscreen interface that debuted on the EOS 650D (Rebel T4i), which we've found to be more useful than you might at first think. The 70D also regains an array of features that disappeared between the EOS 50D and 60D, such as AF microadjustment.

  •     20.2MP APS-C 'Dual Pixel CMOS AF' sensor

But with some caution in reference to stills shooters, whilst this is a step up from the 60d in a good number of ways, I think it's really most appealing to people who have a fairly serious interest in video.

I'm by no means a pro level video shooter, but was quite impressed with how Canon have implemented the much talked about phase detect AF off the "sensor". I've used the 7d and 60d bodies on and off for a few years, and the 70d is one of the better Canon offerings for some time.

My pros and cons list

Pros:
+ Happy with the build quality, no it's not magnesium alloy, but good quality plastics and a strong solid feel
+ On sensor phase detect works really well, it's not "as fast" as using the optical finder but it's heaps faster than the very slow off sensor contrast AF on previous Canon DSLR's. It's quite capable of tracking movements well
+ Buffer is quite decent for this class of camera. I got about 14-15 shots in raw with a SanDisk Extreme Pro 95MB/s card. Jpeg buffer is really decent too I counted over 35 shots if not a bit more with no signs of slowing
+ Touch screen works well and swivel LCD is handy for stills and video
+ Smooth autofocus with the touch screen (touch to target AF) on video this is a big step forward for serious video shooters
+ 7fps is really quite fast for action shooting and more than enough for most, not quite 8fps Canon 7d but a good improvement on the 5.3fps of the 60d
+ The 70d now has the 7d's 19 point all cross type AF system another nice jump up over the 60d
+ AF adjustments!

This camera is perfection.

I'd stalked this online for months, pre-release, and developed quite the crush. I then purchased it as soon as possible, ordering from Panamoz before it had even been released here. It was the best decision I've made regarding photography ever.

It's been well over a year now, and my 600D is gathering dust where ever I ditched it. Everything about any other Canon model I've used pales in comparison to this. The colours are sharp, the sensor is on fire, speed, auto focus and quality are crazy. It's not too heavy, the screen is easy to navigate and touch controls adds an extra dimension to how you set up. I shoot landscapes, wildlife, and the odd wedding or party, now with much better results. The 70D is up for pretty much any area of photography you could dream up.

I'm generally an accident prone person who ventures out in all weather. It took the 600D about a year before the signs of my ownership were there, dust in the camera, chips along the side, and a broken flash. This, however, is as shiny and beautiful as it was the day it arrived home.It's travelled well, it's been handed around to careless drunks at parties and survived, it's made it through torrential rain without any technical hiccups and up mountains with no visible scuffs. The only issue I have had with it was that initially certain lenses didn't click into place. They were attached and functioning but not held in securely, which led to a few falling off near rivers and my heart freezing in place. However, with use this problem has rectified itself, I think it was just a bit stiff and has taken some time for the pin to loosen and spring correctly. But, if you're buying it from Amazon any problem like that can be solved at the drop of a hat.

In short, minus the 5D and maybe the 7D, if you want quality, precision and an overall great piece of kit, buy this camera. I cannot stress enough what a masterpiece this thing is.

By Antoine HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 6 May 2014
Style Name: 18-135 Lens
Being an avid Canon EOS fan, I was so excited when this camera was announced.

Most of the very helpful reviewers here on Amazon go in great detail, so I will leave this review short. The specifications can be viewed on Canon's website anyway, so its useless to copy and paste!!
However I will try to highlight certain key points.

The Canon 70D is a first in offering true and effective video implementation (with unparalleled autofocus on DSLR cameras). Modifications to the body will appeal to videographers in particular. The 70D takes the good of EOS series cameras and introduces a new awesome sensor. What sets this sensor apart is the 19 point "dual pixel focus technology" which nails focusing.

I have tested the camera for a few days and there are many things I like about it. Image quality is nearly on par with the best EOS offering. The articulated capacitive touchscreen comes in so handy, (albeit some might find it awkward to use whilst shooting video due to the camera weight). However I have found it to be a blessing! It is fast, responsive and simply a joy to use!! The touch to focus works brilliantly as it makes transitioning from foreground to background look so professional. The same applies for stills. Once I got used to navigating the intuitive display, I really wished I had it on my 7D.

As already mentioned, the new sensor on the 70D is revolutionary: every pixel is divided in two, offering "phase detection" in live view (during video). This technology is much more reliable and faster than contrast detection (which occasionally tends to hunt before acquiring focus lock). In the few days of ownership I really enjoyed the experience. I am comparing it to the 7D which is a bit unfair, yet I do not own (and never used) the 60D.
