5 out of 5 eggsGreat DSLR for the enthusiast.

This review is from: Canon EOS 70D (8469B002) Black 20.2 MP Digital SLR Camera - Body

Pros: What I like about it. Fast focusing, 19 cross type focus points. Very nice ISO performance. Touch screen is awesome. Sturdy build quality and nice ergonomics. The video quality is excellent combined with STM lenses. Battery perfomance is very good.

Cons: No headphone jack, not a deal breaker.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a Canon T3i and couldn't be happier. The touch screen and video was never a factor in my purchasing of this camera but now I find these features indispensable.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good camera...worth the price

This review is from: Canon EOS 70D (8469B002) Black 20.2 MP Digital SLR Camera - Body

Pros: Phase detection autofocus, very fast and accurate, grip

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It was a great update from my old T3i. So far I love it. Don't consider upgrading it from 60D. Picture quality (I think that matters in these camera), and basic feature wise this is quite similar to 60D. But yes, you get good autofocus system compared to 60D.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent DSLR camera

This review is from: Canon EOS 70D (8469B002) Black 20.2 MP Digital SLR Camera - Body

Pros: Very fast, Touchscreen display, Good battery life, takes outstanding video... replaces camcorder in most all situations.

Cons: Only one SD card slot.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this camera body as an upgrade to my venerable Canon 20D. Wow.. the hardware has come a long ways. This is one of the best cropped DSLR camera out there and a great value for those that can't afford a 5D full frame. I am glad I spent the extra couple hundred over the 60D as this camera replaces both my 20D and my old AVCHD camcorder. Less gear to lug around.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Purchase

This review is from: Canon EOS 70D (8469B002) Black 20.2 MP Digital SLR Camera - Body

Pros: Fast shutter speed for capturing action. Incredibly sharp pictures and the video is extraordinary. I love the built-in wi-fi.

Cons: Sound of the shutter is a little loud. Definitely not for photographing animals from relatively close distances. The auto focus during video recording is wonderful, but also a little noisy. When filming in a quiet environment, you can hear the auto focus. I just use manual focus if I'm taking video in a quiet environment.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I love this camera. For the price, this is an extremely good camera. It can only be outdone by spending MUCH more money. Make sure you pair this camera with a fast SD card. It's worth it!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Camera

This review is from: Canon EOS 70D (8469B002) Black 20.2 MP Digital SLR Camera - Body

Pros: Absolutely flawless Canon DSLR. Fast, responsive, and vast array of Auto Focus features makes it great at capturing birds in flight. The high MP count and deep ISO settings make even low light photography far more viable. The Wi-Fi feature is extremely useful if you have a smartphone, allowing you to take self shots and group photos with greater ease. The flip out screen creates flexibility when using live view or recording movies (which themselves are excellent quality).

Cons: It doesn't bake delicious pies. Makes me want to buy L series lenses!

Other Thoughts: For anyone serious about photography, this is the camera body to get for a reasonable price. It won't steer you wrong. :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat camera

This review is from: Canon EOS 70D (8469B002) Black 20.2 MP Digital SLR Camera - Body

Pros: Great FPS, live view, touch screen!!! EF 28-135 is now usable indoors and low light. ISO6400 and even 12800 is fine for me. Performance/cost ratio is awesome!

Pro reviews have listed more than I want to type. Suffice to say, it will not disappoint.

Cons: Nitpick: top buttons are little mushy. Prefer the hard click. Would also be great if there was a different feel to one of the buttons (similar to the F or J-key on keyboard) so that you can know which button you're on.

Other Thoughts: So much more advanced options to explore.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat camera

This review is from: Canon EOS 70D (8469B002) Black 20.2 MP Digital SLR Camera - Body

Pros: New focus tech is fast and accurate. Image quality is great. Touch screen interfaces makes some things easier (not all). Controls on the top and back of the camera are very intuitive. Nice solid design.

Cons: I can see how it'd be a little bulky for some people, but then those people probably shouldn't be looking to buy a DSLR. No GPS onboard (higher end models have it, but it should be standard at this point on all)

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace my finally dead, but very faithful, Rebel XT. I also needed an upgrade since the Rebel XT was just not enough camera for me. I compared this to the Canon 7D and decided the 70D was the way to go. The "interface" is different then the Rebel XT, but very intuitive and quick to pick up.

The Focusing system on the 70D is great. I mentioned it before but it's worth stating twice. Having one sensor to take the image as well as focus is a big leap for Canon and it paid off. Further, the way you can take photos in Live View mode on the touch screen, and just tap on what you want in focus and it snaps the photo...all in one step...is simply amazing.

The built-in WiFi is "cool", but I don't see a use for it just yet. In the studio it'd be great to immediately offload, basically shooting tethered. I just don't do much studio shooting.

The continued lack of GPS in cameras is depressing, but we all have to deal with it. Only a few higher model Canon DSLRs have it, as do a few Point & Shoot cameras. For the cost of a GPS chipset, you'd think Canon would just throw it in.
