The Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera Body is changing the way users capture still images and video with a DSLR camera, Canon proudly introduces the EOS 70D – a trailblazing powerhouse featuring a revolutionary autofocus technology that unlocks the potential of Live View. The innovative Dual Pixel CMOS AF allows the EOS 70D to shoot video in Live View with smooth autofocus like a camcorder; enables users to realize the compositional freedom afforded by accurate and quick autofocus on the camera’s Vari-angle touch screen monitor; and is compatible with 103* Canon EF lenses for nearly limitless creative flexibility. Built-in wireless technology further enhances shooting and sharing capabilities. Superb image quality is provided by a newly designed 20.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor, which enables an ISO range of 100–12800 (H: 25600), and the powerful ≥ 5+ Image Processor helps achieve up to 7.0 fps continuous shooting. Elevating the possibilities of creative expression to extraordinary new heights, the EOS 70D with Dual Pixel CMOS AF is truly an unprecedented performer. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF on the EOS 70D is a revolutionary Canon technology that raises Live View shooting to a convenient and comfortable complement to traditional viewfinder shooting. It will change forever what is possible with a DSLR camera.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF delivers autofocus
performance that is similar to that of a
camcorder – but on a DSLR camera! Focus is
precise, transitions are smooth and natural, and
subjects in motion are tracked consistently over
a large area of the frame. The EOS 70D locks in
outstanding focus quickly and doesn’t let go,
helping you achieve pleasing, cinematic results.
Live View shooting, powered by Dual Pixel CMOS
AF, is phenomenally accurate and faster than
ever. With such advanced autofocus capabilities
available when using the Vari-angle monitor, Live
View is now a capable complement to traditional
viewfinder shooting. Comfortably and confidently
shoot more subjects, from more angles and
vantage points, as the situation dictates.
103* Canon EF lenses are able to fully realize
the benefits of Dual Pixel CMOS AF. Compatible
lenses greatly expand creative and compositional
possibilities so users can enjoy a wide range of
endeavors made possible through various lenses
whether shooting still images or video.
Wireless technology makes it easy to share your
photos and video with friends and family. It
also enables you to shoot remotely and control
camera settings, allowing even more creative
and compositional freedom.
At 20.2 Megapixels, the CMOS sensor on the
EOS 70D helps ensure excellent tonal gradation
and phenomenal image quality. A powerful
DIGIC 5+ Image Processor improves speed,
reduces noise, and enables an expanded ISO
range of ISO 100–12800 (expandable to 25600
in H mode).
Capable of shooting up to 7.0 fps during
continuous shooting, the EOS 70D is a perfect
camera for quick action. A rapidly occurring
scene can be captured moment by moment,
second by second, so that even the briefest of
opportunities are captured in exquisite clarity.
The EOS 70D easily captures stunning HD video,
in a number of recording sizes and frame rates,
all with lifelike detail and accurate, brilliant
color. And new Dual Pixel CMOS AF helps ensure
your subjects are continually in pristine focus.
The Vari-angle Touch Screen 3.0-inch Clear View
LCD monitor II on the EOS 70D displays fine
detail (with approximately 1.04 million dots),
features capacitive touch technology, and
enables comfortable shooting from a variety
of angles and vantage points not possible with
The EOS 70D makes use of 19 high precision
cross-type AF sensors and a central f/2.8 dual
cross-type sensor during viewfinder shooting
to crisply focus on subjects – even if their
movements are erratic or unpredictable.
