Canon’s EOS 70D is one of the most exciting cameras to debut in a long, long time. Boasting the best aspects of Canon’s DSLR range rolled into one package, the 70D is sure to impress. But! The 70D has something else up its sleeve that may make it truly revolutionary.
The 70D borrows heavily from its predecessors: the 7D’s autofocus sensor, the Wi-Fi capabilities from the 6D, as well as the 5D Mk. III‘s Digic 5+ image processor. This blend of features alone makes it, it theory, a stunning camera. What makes this camera really exciting is Canon’s 20.2 MP APS-C Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensor. In other words, every pixel that comprises the sensor is split into two distinct photodiodes. This allows live phase-detection autofocus which in turn enables beautiful movies and accurate live viewing.
We expect the 70D to arrive in store by August 29th, when we hope to publish a more in-depth review. Get in touch with us today to find out more!
