The Canon EOS 70D was developed for users looking to step up from
entry-level models and advanced amateurs seeking to extend their
photographic horizons. In addition to key devices upgraded from the
preceding EOS 60D (released in September 2010), including the CMOS
sensor and image processor, the 70D incorporates Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a
new autofocus technology that provides significantly improved AF
performance during Live View shooting and when shooting movies.
Responding to a diverse range of user needs in accordance with varied
shooting styles, the new camera contributes to expanding the realm of
When using the Live View function, new Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables sharp
focus to be obtained through phase-difference AF until final focus is
achieved—the same as when shooting through the viewfinder—across
approximately 80% vertically and horizontally of the shooting area.
Compared with Canon's previous image-plane phase-difference AF, Dual
Pixel CMOS AF realizes shorter focusing times and exceptional tracking
performance. Additionally, when shooting movies, the improved tracking
capabilities of the Movie Servo AF ensure continuously smooth focusing
performance, even when filming quickly moving subjects.
Equipped with a newly developed APS-C-size approximately 20.2-megapixel
CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 5+ image processor, which makes possible
high-speed image processing, the EOS 70D delivers exceptional image
quality and a fast continuous shooting speed of up to approximately 7
frames per second. Additionally, offering a maximum standard ISO of
12800 (expandable to ISO 25600), the camera enables the capture of
images with reduced noise, even when shooting in low-light conditions.
When shooting through the viewfinder, the camera's 19-point all
cross-type AF system provides support for a variety of image
compositions and realizes outstanding focusing performance for moving
Featuring built-in Wi-Fi, the EOS 70D allows users to use their
smartphone as a wireless controller to shoot stills with the camera from
afar. Additionally, still images (JPEG) stored on the camera's
memory card can be transferred and saved to a compatible smartphone, PC
or other device.
