The EOS 70D is a middle range SLR for the photographer. It appears to be a good upgrade for the EOS 60D. Canon claims that this new camera is the first of its type that has a good autofocus for both video and shooting. It has a lot of the features that many of Canon’s SLRS have, which includes the autofocus sensor that the EOS 7D has. It also has the touch screen that the EOS 700D has in addition to the same Wi Fi that the EOS 6D has. The EOS 7D’s exterior has a new sensor that is totally different. It has 20.2 MP resolution, but it utilizes a dual design that makes it possible for each pixel to have two different photodiodes that will face both left and right. Basically, it has an autofocus that can give a live view and a movie mode.
From the release day of the EOS 60D (Read Review on Amazon) – August, 26th of 2010 a while has passed. A long interval of time that let a long line of Canon fans in stand-by. Those looking for a compact device, but also with something more than the entry level SLR did not want to invest enough money to purchase a EOS 5D Mark II (now 5D Mark III), or on the new, less expensive EOS 6D.
From the 60D, the new EOS 70D inherits the spirit: a robust digital SLR, yet compact in size (this device measures 139 x 104 x 79mm), with a convenient weight (755 grams including battery), even if it’s not normally used for professional work, which if used for that purpose it wouldn’t be bad at, it still offers an affordable price.
The following we will do a comparison about Canon EOS 60D vs 70D:
