Incredible offering from Canon
Posted by: JPowell490 from: TN on
I sold my Nikon D7000 about 2 years ago and regretted it every, single day. It was an amazing camera that I never thought would be equaled.
That is until I purchased the new Canon 70D. This DSLR is even better than my previous Nikon. The picture quality is just fantastic in any lighting. I shoot a lot of saltwater aquarium pictures where the lighting is all over the spectrum. This gives most cameras trouble when it comes to gauging the depth of field and color. Not the Canon, the pictures are stunning and the lighting is accurately reflected in the pictures.
The wireless feature of this camera works flawlessly. It enables you to connect to your camera via your iPhone. You can then transfer or view pictures right from your camera, or to your Mac or PC. No more inserting the SD card and copying. Of course you can still do that if you want to.
The quality of the 70D is fantastic as well. The body is balanced well and the included 18-135 lens is a great all around lens. It will most likely fit any need you have. Moving targets are no problem for this camera either with the supreme auto focus ability.
After quite a few shots in all weather, lighting, etc. I cannot find a "con" to this offering. It is worth every penny.

I only really got into SLR photography about 4 years ago, and bought my first Canon Rebel T2i. For a beginner, it was great but as I became more experienced I definitely wanted to try more creative shots. I was going to upgrade to the 60D earlier this year, but decided to hold out until the 70D was released after reading some pre-release documents, and am so glad I did. It is an awesome camera - the features and image quality really do make my T2i feel outdated. I have been blown away by how good the pictures look and how much I can do with the camera. The video quality and silent continual auto focus are amazing. A few weeks in and I am learning new techniques every time I use it. The lens included in this package is perfect as a multi-purpose lens and stays on my camera most of time, with only the occasional switch for my wide angle and 300 telephoto. The STM technology is quick and silent. I would buy this camera in a heartbeat again - it is expensive, but the photos and memories you can take with this will be more valuable.

A fantastic crop sensor camera, one major flaw...
Posted by: JoseL from: San Diego on
I had this camera almost 6 months, bought it here at BestBuy, not going to go into a full review, you can go to DP Review or Ken Rockwell for that, but I will say this, the Canon 70D is an incredible value for the money, I bought it with the 18-135 STM IS lens, a fantastic combo for video. I use prime lenses for stills, fantastic image quality, when focusing with the LiveView on the LCD that is, which brings me to this otherwise fantastic camera serious flaw...
Focusing with the view finder is poor at best, after finding this out by running several controlled tests, and after doing a search for "70D view finder focus" on the net, there is now doubt, Canon has an issue with this, a big one... Again, this is a fantastic camera, and probably the best for video as of now, incredible pictures as well when using the 2 pixel Live View focusing, but unfortunately the view finder focusing issue is just to important, and that is why I took away 2 stars from an otherwise 5 shinning stars potential with all the other pluses... Just do a search for 70 View Finder focusing, and you will see why, or run your own tests at home, on a tripod, same targets, one with LCD focus, and one with View Finder, compare them at 100% view on you favorite software, and you will see the issue. I am keeping my 70D, I do a lot of video and this camera has been fantastic for that, I also own a 6D and I used that one for my still photography, since my style of shooting requires viewfinder focusing....

total game changer
Posted by: alice from: on
i purchased this product after using a Nikon J1... I couldn't believe the difference in a dslr camera and what all I've been missing. there are tons of features on this camera that are not available in others. The touch screen is so helpful, especially when you are in a hurry, connecting the camera to your phone is so convenient when u want to load your pics immediately to social media and you don't even have to be on wi-fi. I have a Mark 3 5d camera as well, and i go back and forth with these two cameras, they both work amazing, and they both have different features. 70D even has option to turn your picture into a fish eye look without even having to use a fish eye lens, which is also a plus.

Love this camera
Posted by: Leather from: Florida on
I am coming from a T3I (which I was more than happy with the image quality but needed more features). But when I got this 70D I just could not believe how sharp the pictures are and the colors are so true! I have been using the 55-250mm IS STM and 18-1235mm IS STM lens with this camera and the whole set up works fantastic. I did not think I would like the touch screen but it turns out I use it most of the time to adjust my settings. The video and shooting autofocus work great although I have had a few times where it would not autofocus on something usually in really low light conditions. When I posted some pictures on facebook all my friends and family commented on how much my photography has improved (they didn't know I got a new camera) I like to photograph wildlife, and the pictures of birds are just amazing you can see each fiber in their feathers and the small cracks in their talons. I find myself constantly looking for things to photograph just because it seems like each photo pleasantly surprises me. The shutter speed and FPS work great so that I can freeze the birds midflight and get tack sharp photos too. I highly recommend this camera!

I upgraded from at T2i and debated either going to the T5i or spend the extra on a 70D. I don't regret getting the 70D at all. For myself, the image quality between the T2i and 70D are almost similar with a slight edge to the 70D, but the video quality is far beyond what you can expect from any DSLR in this price range. The T5i video isn't even close to the 70D. There was a huge deal made about the dual pixel auto focus system and I now see the reason why. Other options that are huge pluses are the 7fps burst rate, articulating LCD Screen with touch, and the built-in wifi. I can now take pics with the 70D on the move, transfer pics to my phone wirelessly, and share it. You can also share online straight from the 70D but have not played with that yet so can't comment. Overall, if your upgrading from a previous rebel, the 70D is a great option if you don't want to go full-frame. Most average photographers aren't professional (like me) but want the best you can afford. What matters most are the memories you can capture and hold onto. There are other lower-priced Canons but don't have the video capabilities that the 70D has. If you are strictly only into photo's, there are other options. If you think video could come into play for you and you don't want to deal with a camcorder, definitely go for the 70D.

I'm only starting out into photography, but so far the Canon EOS 70D is proving to be an excellent camera! The pictures are amazing. It does shoot 1080 video as well, but you do lose some clarity after loading to YouTube. calicojennykid.tumblr.com for more pic examples.

Love the camera
Posted by: suhaney50 from: on
Love the camera. This is my second 70d. I took weekly action shots at HS Football and basketball games for several years. I am a grandmother that likes to take photos with very little training. Many of my photos were considered good enough for the yearbook.

Great camera for a beginner or pro.
Posted by: Cardinal2 from: Bridge City, Texas on
I bought my Canon 70D probably within the 1st week Best Buy had them available on-line. I would have bought it from a local camera shop, but they would not sell boby with kit lens. I hated it but I saved $200.
I replace a well used Canon 40D. I take a lot of sports photos so the action shots need the 7 fps. Many times the lighting is not the best at sporting events and this camera makes it easy to still get the action shots.
Another thing nice is to be taking still photos and switch to a video with a quick flip of a switch, and back again. This is very nice when it comes to shooting grandkids, when a video is quickly needed.
Doubling the megapixels of the 40D makes it nice for cropping when needed.
The Q button is another nice feature that makes quick touchscreen changes to settings.
I believe I am going to realling enjoy the camera as I did the Canon 40D.

Perfect for Filming
Posted by: Drayton from: on
I bought this camera for its dual abilities of still photography and video. Its ability to quickly recognize, track, and focus on faces is a huge asset as well as the fast focus reset when changing the view mid-shot. Not hard to learn if you're a beginner either. Love the 70D!
