    Best crop sensor DSLR on the market

    |
    Posted .

    If you want a full frame camera like the Canon 5d MKiii, but you don't want to break the bank, this is the next best thing. This is about as close to a full frame sensor that you can get without it actually being full frame. This camera, in my opinion, is a game changer. If you've mastered your EOS T series (or any beginner DSLR for that matter), and you're ready to graduate, this is THE best camera for the money. The 70D has the same image processor (DIGIC 5+) that is used in Canons higher end full frame DSLRs (EOS 6D, 5D MarkIII, 1D X), which gives this camera the ability to take amazing pictures. Seriously. I was blown away at the quality of images I got from this camera right out of the box. I went with the 18-135 kit lens. It's a versatile lens that takes crystal clear images. The selling point for me on this camera was the vari angle touchscreen LCD monitor. It allows me to see the shot at low or precarious angles where I might otherwise not know what's in frame until after I take the shot. Saves a lot of time getting a shot set up. Despite what you may have read, the duel pixel CMOS Auto Focus is flawless. It takes some time to get used to, but once you understand how to properly utilize it, it takes focus issues and makes them almost non existent. I won't say the system is perfect, but what autofocus system is? The 19 point AF system works instantaneously, and when set to Servo, it tracks effortlessly, which is perfect for video. The only issue with the autofocus system is when shooting video, if you're not using the right lens, you will hear the motor trying to focus the lens. Not an issue if you're overdubbing audio of any type, but definitely an issue if you're not. That being said, you can't hear a sound from the 18-135 lens while tracking, but the f1/8 50mm prime lens (for example) can't keep up. Of course, any incredibly expensive USM lens will not have this problem. There really is too much to review on this camera. It does soooo much. Someone tried to convince me to get a 6D instead of the 70D because the price difference was only $1000, but that was out of my budget, and if I'm going to buy a full frame, I'm going to buy a 5D. So, for the money, the 70D takes gorgeous pictures and is probably the best or one of the best cameras that one can buy before moving up to a full frame. I got the Canon 70D with the 18-135mm kit lens and the Canon EF 50mm f1/8 prime lens, and a two year full coverage warranty for a total of $1600. Honestly cannot beat that deal anywhere. Trust me, I tried to price match. Even the Amazon bundles couldn't compete. Best Buy really helped me make the right choice, and their staff was knowledgeable about the product.

    Incredible offering from Canon

    Posted .

    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.

    A wonderful camera for anyone!

    I have been a Canon camera fan for many years, and this one certainly doesn't disappoint! It has 20+ MP Dual pixel sensor, DIGIC 5+ image processor, and ISO to 25,600. I shoot wildlife, birds, etc, so it has a fast 7fps and a silent shutter mode...very helpful! I also have the 7D, which is great, but I really enjoy the touch screen and WiFi on the 70D... The resulting photo images have beautiful color and crispness. I like the live view and use it in both cameras, but the fully articulated screen in the 70D makes a huge difference...LOVE my 70D!!!! So glad that I bought it!

    I absolutely LOVE my Canon 70D. I am an amatuer video/photo enthusiast who has wanted to buy an expensive camera for a long time. I am still yet to figure out all of the buttons but I really do think this camera is fantastic. The photos and videos are so crispy, clear and sharp. It is literally like you are looking through a clean window in every picture/video. There are sooo many options. I would recommend getting a lens included in your purchase, as a bundle, so you are getting your moneys worth. It is an expensive camera, but SOOO worth it if you love photography and video production. Everything you capture with this camera is literally magical.

    A little long in years but a strong contender

    I love this camera it's easy to learn your way around it. The burst rate is very impressive, along with some weather sealing. A sturdy build quality and the autofocus is very impressive my t6s had some features that I wish this camera had. such as the view finder sensor that will show your settings or the picture you took when your eye is removed from the view finder that way your LCD screen isn't always on, also when your shooting multiple pictures at 7fps the live view just goes black until you let off the shutter button. I was tempted to go with the 80d but if I'm going to get towards the 2,000$ range with a camera I'm going to save and spend the extra money to go with a full frame like a 5dmk III this camera is getting a little long in the tooth but still just amazing i recommend it over the 80d UNLESS your more interested in video and using the new 18-135usm lens with power zoom adapter that can drastically improve the look of your film Happy shooting!

    I went from my Rebel T5i to this camera, there were a few adjustments I had to make due to this camera being a little different than the Rebel but overall I really love this camera, the picture quality is awesome!

    Love this camera

    Posted .

    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!

    Great camera for the price. The touchscreen swivel LCD gives you more flexibility and versatility when in crowds or can't get that proper positioning. Easy manual controls allow you to adjust to ever changing lighting conditions when outside in nature or even inside with uneven lighting. 1080p 60fps shooting came in handy when my daughter first started walking 18mm-135mm STM lens is amazing for the price. Fast and great focal range. This camera with 50mm lens makes every picture look like a professional shot.

    I have been shooting over 15yrs and wanted a nice backup camera and I picked this camera up and I am shocked by the quality of photos this camera takes. I do a lot of studio shoots and the camera works wonders, only downfall was it was not true to life when you transfer from camera to computer with my lighting but I figured it..

    Canon 70D

    |
    Posted .

    First of all this is my first high end camera. That being said I can say that the first several hundred pictures I took were ok or bad. But as I got more experience they quality has improved considerably. So the problem was obviously user error but to make the improvements I have invested a lot of time and research into learning to tweak the settings in certain conditions and find the right shot. The camera is great for taken a rapid succession of photos, up to 7 per second, and stopping motion, 1/8000 of a second in good light, however it doesn't, for the price and complexity, seem like a good idea for your casual user. However if you are willing to invest the time and energy it has outstanding performance in high speed and auto focus. The low light isn't horrible but compared to some that boast great low light performance it isn't great. The stabilization system in the lens that comes with the camera may help but I haven't noticed a difference between it and the second lens I bought which doesn't have it. Still best to use a tripod for longer exposures. Hope this helps.

    The Canon 70D takes some amazing pictures! It is the perfect size fits very comfortably in my hands and is a joy to use. Very simple button placement and I love the lenses. Save that for another review. I feel the colors jump and look so vibrent with this camera. It's an amazing tool to add to my tool box. It will allow me to tell a story in many different ways. I can't wait to use the video feature. I just purchased a stabilizer and am excited to see how it shoots HD video.

    This is my first DSLR. I purchased the Canon SX40 about a year ago primarily to shoot water sports video. I've enjoyed the SX40 so much I decided to purchase a DSLR for better sports pictures. I researched for about 3 months before purchasing the 70D. i'm very happy! Over the holiday season I captured and shared some very cool portraits! I'm a totall newbie, Im having fun! There are some great totorials on Utube for this model camera.

    A fantastic crop sensor camera, one major flaw...

    Posted .

    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....

    I bought this for photography and video recording. This is an exceptional camera. Produces amazing shots and video. Excellent quality and well worth the price! Make sure you buy the microphone to attach to the camera--makes the sound quality better. The photos below were taken with this camera and lens.

    Had an original Canon Rebel xs for 4+ years, of course after warranty expired I started having problems with it, so about a year went by and I purchased this 70D. It has been a great camera so far, still learning lots! I would recommend if you are serious about photography, or want top of the line with out making the plunge to a MarkIII then this is a good choice.

    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.
