The Newest Of The New From Canon
Canon 70D. Replacement for the Canon 60D. A new system camera that integrates with most of the stuff you already have. New spcs are:
20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor.
Digic 5+ processor.
19 autofocus points.
7FPS and the buffer can stack in 15 RAW or 40 jpeg at that rate.
Up to 7 shot backeting.
7 creative filters in-built.
3" touch screen.
Full HD 1080 video - 3 different frame rates.
Continuous Movie Servo. Continuous pre-AF in the live view mode.
Stereo mic built-in.
Optical flash control for the Canon speed lights - radio connectivity for the 600EX-RT in-built.
The focusing during live-view shooting is effected with a new system. It is referred to as dual pixel CMOS AF. Each pixel is said to have image and AF detection circuits. The lens is stated to move only in one direction to the AF focus point - not to hunt back and forth.
The system chart shows all the usual connectivity to EF and EF-S lenses, as well as to the large number of Canon speed lights. It should be a fine successor in the small-sensor high quality camera market.
We'll be able to tell you more when the Canon representative tells US more. You can ring up and put your name and a deposit down for it now, but you'll have to wait to find out the final prices. The management has just got briefed and they need time to digest.
