5 out of 5 eggs Great camera 11/09/2013

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.
