Tuan NG Semi-pro camera: Oct 9, mobile. I don't do cam just photo work. Scorehound Andrehk, Why would you say it is better? I feel more confident when holding DSLR cameras rather than mirorless ones.
Tascam DR-70D overview
Canon 70D in the real world. See real-world photos taken with the 70D. Compare Canon 70D image quality against competitors. Read our Canon 70D conclusion. Canon 7D advantages over Canon 70D Fast startup. Canon 70D advantages over Canon 7D Less expensive. Common Strengths Eye-level viewfinder. Common Weaknesses Focus peaking. Body Only Body Only Kit with mm lens. The arrangement of controls and features on the front of the camera is near-identical.
The most significant difference is the absence of the small four-hole microphone port that, on the 60D, sat directly above the model number badge. Seen from above, the Canon 70D likewise retains an arrangement very much like that of the 60D. As well as the two four-hole ports for the relocated microphone -- now stereo, and straddling the rear of the hot shoe -- there's a new button between the Shutter button and front dial.
This new control is used to select between autofocus area modes. The number of positions on the Mode dial has also been slashed by a third, to just It's when you come to the rear of the camera that the changes are more significant. In fact, something of a game of musical chairs has taken place. The Menu and Info buttons have jumped from the top right corner of the LCD monitor, and now sit above its top left corner, instead.
With its chair taken, the Delete button has grabbed a spot at the bottom right corner of the display. That move left the Playback button homeless, and so it has jumped up to take the spot previously occupied by the Info button. The Quick Menu button now sits above it, with its old spot now button-free. The LCD monitor looks identical, but now features a touch-screen overlay.
In other respects, the layout is much as it was. The left-hand side of the EOS 70D as seen from the rear also shows a few changes. The connectivity available on this side is as it was, but the original single flap covering all of the ports has been split in two, with one half moved slightly behind the other. Above these, the speaker grille is now a nine-hole instead of seven-hole arrangement.
As the years go by, we see camera technology advance by fits and starts. Some developments are a bigger deal than others, but it's rare that anything really amounts to a true technological breakthrough. This new AF system is as revolutionary a development as any we can remember seeing since the dawn of the DSLR era itself.
By integrating accurate, fully-capable phase-detect autofocus over a majority of the image sensor's surface, Canon is fundamentally rewriting the book on autofocus. It's absolutely unique, with two photodiodes sitting under a single shared microlens at each pixel location.
This, as we've described in much more detail further up the page, allows Canon to provide for on-chip phase detection at every pixel location over almost two-thirds of the sensor's surface area.
The new sensor is also slightly higher-res than the Simultaneously, the sensor's active area has increased slightly to The new processor allows improvements both in performance, and in image quality. It was the first full-frame DSLR with high-definition video recording capabilities, and was offered at an extremely affordable price compared to other large-sensor video cameras at the time.
It wasn't a slim margin, either: The Canon 5D II was tens of thousands of dollars more affordable, and yet still had a larger sensor than its rivals! It works great for still photography, too, as I found out during my time putting it through its paces. I've been a Canon user for a few years now and shoot both still photography and video. When holding the 70D, you feel like holding a hi-tech device while the A brings to you 'PnS-like' feeling!
Love the touch screen on 70D. And you know what: I saw a guy at camera store who tried to touch the A when navigating the menu all the time even he knew that it can not be! If you concern about the image quality between Canon vs.
Canon's image quality is better in real life! I plan to buy a semi-pro camera with the kit lens in the next month or so. I have a budget of about Rs. I am torn between mirrorless and Canon 70D. I am leaning towards the traditional DSLR more. Can someone please suggest which way I should go?
I am hearing good things about the sony A but I will not be able to upgrade beyond that soon. Canon 70D or a mirrorless Camera. I owned both for a while and decided to keep the 70D. I feel more confident when holding DSLR cameras rather than mirorless ones.
Hey everyone, I've decided to upgrade from EOS D to 70D but reading all the reviews and everything is changing my mind. It is best in the business. Having seeked expert advice before buying my first DSLR, I am happy that I could get the same opinion from all of them. I need your guys advice. My Sony NEX-7 with a got just stolen. I'm a travel photographer, means most of my pics cover landscapes, people, wildlife and sometimes sports. My preferences lay on a single lense with a big range, for that I was thinking about the Tamron in combination with the here discussed EOS 70D.
Due to the fact of being in Costa Rica, my chances to buy the lense are pretty small. Any alternatives that are more comon? Thanks a lot in advance. I used a Tamron mm as my work horse lens on one of my cameras just to avoid changing lens constantly. It's not too big, either. I only found means to do 3 Frames. Can somebody explain to me how to do more than 3 Frames or is it just a typo in the spec sheet?
My intention behind buying this lens is just to make sure that I need not carry multiple lenses, and this should help me learn DSLR techniques. Please advise if this is a good combination. I'd go for an STM Despite Canon's sensors are behind Sony's,I am seriously thinking about switching to Canon. Hi Steve70Dreinhardt If "the same issues as everyone else is reporting" means focusing problems, read this. I have solved the problem as following: In menu I put the focus point illumination on red squares in VF activate themselves, when focusing is ok.
Then I changed AF from one point focusing to 9 point focusing. Makeing this allowes the camera body to deside, which point are the best ones for focusing. Then I look at, that at least 3 points will be activated and if not, I make a new focusing untill it will happen. This way the body can choose best points for focusing suitable amount light, contrast, details and colours. If I use one point focusing and choose the situation of the point by myself, it is maybe not good enough for the camera and then focusing is not ok.
By this way I can shoot sharp pictures and misses are very few. Hi All, I recently purchased the sigma 1. I have tried resetting the camera back to default but no difference was noted. I was advised by the shop to send the body and lens to Sigma in Australia where we are located for the lens to be calibrated to my camera body, however, my concern lies that the issue is a body issue not lens issue, can anyone confirm this?
I am about to go on a safari in Africa and was intending on taking a f2. I was thinking of purchasing this combination. Can you be a bit more specific about the problem please?
I am aware that focusing wide open can be difficult, but in a lens of this focal length range I would normally focus manually anyhow. Hello, when I shoot with my 70 D and then upload my footage to final cut, The start time of each shot is different.
So for instance the 1st shot is from 0s to 12s well then the start time of 2nd shot will be 12s and so on and isn't zero It doest do this with my other cameras or the iPhone. You can reset the time code to 0 in the menu but it never does it automatically. I read the manual but i didn't understand anything.
Anybody has a clue? The start time of each shot should be zero! But if timecode always starts with zero, what's the difference with record time?
Timecode is needed to syncronize your movies between each other Either counting overall record time of your shots, or indicating where it was started. So reset of timecode is needed, for example, if your starting new project. Use record time, it always starts with zero. I now see the purpose of a timecode! I thought you just sinked with the audio waves but i guess it can help with timecode too. But never mind it's okay ;. I have a canon 70D, while taking photos a shaft of light appeared in the photo , I changed lens but it is still there.
Can you tell me why this would happen? Hi Place this question on the Canon SLR forum and hopefully someone will give you a definitive answer! I have some thoughs but they may cloud the correct answer! Similar thing happened to a friends 70D. If I remember correctly it was a horizontal bar would be lighter then the rest of the picture. He ended up having to get his shutter fixed due to a detached blade. How come nothing in the testing procedure is the same when you look up the "auto focus" sections of the 70D and the 7D mk II.
Would be interesting to see the 70D: If the body and lens are matched perfectly, or you micro-adjust to match them, then the inconsistency goes away. It's just that this is the first DSLR with phase detect on the sensor that illustrates just how much better phase detect AF calculations on the sensor are. One of the features listed in this review is "silent shutter mode" which I found on the camera but it is not quiet at all.
It's the loudest of any camera I've owned. Am I doing something incorrectly? I can't directly answer you question as I don't have a 70D, but I do have a 5D MkIII and the silent shutter modes on it are significantly quieter than the regular shutter modes.
And both silent and regular are much quieter than most of the Nikons I've heard. I take a lot of theater pics and I have found the silent mode to be great. It is generally inaudible from more than about 10' away if the room isn't dead quiet. This review says, "In addition to capturing video at x at 30, 25, and 24fps, the 70D can also capture a still image, or multiple still images at full resolution Is there a way to create a still from a video frame after the fact so my video isn't all goofed up?
You can create any still from any video using your video editor program -- that would be the preferred method of doing so. Hi Allen, which camera do you feel performs the best in the 60D 70D price range?
Not trying to debate was looking for your professional opinion. I'm interested in these two cameras: I usually do some landscape photography, portraits but in the near future I expect to learn about the timelapse technique. Video isn't really important for me so far. I would appreciate your opinions. Don't listen to the Nikon fanboy.
For your needs, and given the age of the 7D, I'd go for the 70D. It's updated in virtually all respects and represents a good value. Thank you guys for your advices I really appreciate it.
Now I'm between these two cameras: I'd like to know the best combination of eos 70d with the telephoto lenses. Wow, just finished watching the 70D vs the I did have the at one time and sold it. Guess I should have spent more time with it. However, a friend of mine is using his 70D for video and I like how the 70D has that pull out LCD touch monitor and can chose different focus points instantly where the you have to arrow your focus box to that location. End up getting the DE because I shoot more photos but its still a Nikon and the video is the same setup.
Image quality is great though but I like how the video is setup on the canon. Looks easier to work with. Should I just get the 70D or the new 7D to do video. I don't think the new 7D has a flip out Lcd touch screen which i think is really cool. But I shoot more photos than I do video.
What do I do. Both 70D and 7D2 has better video due to dual pixel phase detection technology. Eos 70D better with touch screen so that we can change focus during movie shooting focus pull , but lack of headphone, whilst EOS 7D mark2 has headphone output, but lack of flip and touch screen. I guess wait for EOS 6d mk2 that has both and also full-frame? Hi, I am about to buy a new camera to replace my recently stolen D. I am tossing up between the Canon D and the 70D and would appreciate advice regarding which direction to go.
I take a variety of subject matter from portraits to landscapes, but not usually sports. I don't usually take video either, but I am thinking it could be something useful to consider in the near future, for family events etc. Well, it's kind of like buying a Toyota Camry or Honda Accord.
They're comparable and either will get the job done. Both Nikon and Canon have have their followings. Look for features that you think you'll use: Do you mean the forthcoming 70D, or the original one? Just as there are other cars besides Camrys and accords, there are other worthy camera brands and I think they are worth talking about. You don't specify what you want you want your camera for landscapes? What I'm wanting is a nice but non-expensive everyday lens that will allow me to take pictures of my active 1yr old, indoor events, outdoor adventures, candids and family portraits.
A second lens to give me that "bokeh" effect that I love shooting and the 3rd lens to have some fun with, like the fisheye effect. Other than the lens that comes in the kit, what is a good walk-around lens for the 70D? Something I will use during everyday life and during photo shoots? I have a 1yr old daughter who I also love taking candids of. Any feedback is appreciated. Canon , spend two weeks in Thailand, carried all fancy stuff befind my back, gues what?
Hi vlab - the photos you took with your lens were they good quality lens quiet and focus quick. Photos of sights and family. You can use the lens also for video since it has IS, although in quite places you can hear the USM a bit. Get the 50mm f1. How disappointing to find that they have omitted, what should be a simple inclusion, in this camera.
Makes the Map function in Lightroom 5 obsolete!! Upgraded from d and probably expecting too much of that? Because , after using it for a couple of months, I have more than one problem with this camera: I also found out that: Just wanted to point out a couple things that you might not be considering. The mm is honestly a terrible lens. Pick a focal length that you like and buy a more specialized lens with a larger maximum aperture. For example the canon 50mm 1.
Then check your file sizes x frame rate and you'll have an idea how much data you need to write per second not to fill your buffer. I'm a teenager looking to upgrade from my samsung nx Would the Canon EOS 70d be a good option for a first-dslr? Hello lake, I'm not sure why "camera people" talk so much, say so little, fight so much and never answer a question. It is certainly not an entry level model and it certainly is not a professional model, so it sits nicely in the middle of the range.
I beginner can take spectacular shots using it, there is a huge amount of learning you can do with this camera and anything less than a career in photography will see you never require another camera - it make take you quite awhile to learn everything it does, and many years beyond that to master the controls, but you can take excellent pictures right out of the box.
Don't let all the talk about "models" and waiting for the "next" one throw you off - there is no end to the models. Any brand you buy will suit you fine because they are all good.
Do your research and see which model camera suits your needs best. It's not the brand but the model within the brand.
There are an awful lot of things that you probably need to think about. For example, if you plan on out door, all weather use, then a sealed camera is a very good idea. Canon added the dust and moisture seals back with the 70D.
You don't want to dunk it a pond, or drag by the strap through a dune, but it won't die in a light rain or start making grinding noises when the shutter moves on a dusty day. DSLR results have more to do with the lens than the body, so one thing that you will discover is that what ever camera you chose, the lenses will tend to increasingly tie you to that brand.
What kind of photography do you want to do? The 70D is an excellent camera body. So are most others. Hello, just my two cents worth. I own a 5dMarkII but wanted a cheaper alternative for distance so I bought the 70d. I was waiting on the 7D replacement but there was a special deal of no tax plus I had a trade in. Anyway, I bought the 70d. You can buy ultra wide lenses to counter the crop factor with FF lenses like the The Tokina is a great piece of glass for Crop cameras.
I have owned crops and FF cameras and I struggle to find a major difference between the quality of the images when a good lens is attached and the photo is taken properly. I will say the high ISO noise of crops isn't as good as FF, but the difference isn't that noticeable in most situations. The 7Dii would have the same amount of high iso noise because it uses the same sensor. If you hate noise that much either. The 7DII does not use the same sensor as the 70D.
Just because it is 20MP doesn't mean its the same. How is the 7Dii sensor different? What proof do you have? The Imaging Resource comparometer reveals identical IQ between the 2 cameras. Do you really think that Canon would waste resources on a new sensor so soon after the 70D sensor was introduced. There is nothing wrong with the 70D sensor. Why come out with a new one. The flip out screen is also great for close to ground and macro work.
Exaggerated superlatives are a common problem on these forums. If you had two cars and one had a top speed of mph and another mph they would say the slightly faster car is way faster or far faster etc. It's a hold over from childhood. I have a 5D2 and a 7D, have used both extensively and see the differences. I'll most likely upgrade the 7D to a 7DII when it's available, particularly for distant stuff including birds and boats, but wish it had the swivel screen. If I had too much money I'd get a 70D too Is this video telling the truth?
