Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera (Body Only)

Canon has gone above and beyond our expectations again with this game changing camera with full HD video capability! Canon has introduced the EOS 70D, a new digital SLR camera that not only provides a Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensor for superb still images but allows you to capture video in Live View and autofocus similar to using a camcorder! A powerful DIGIC 5+ Image Processor supports continuous shooting up to 7.0 frames per second, as well as an extended ISO range of 100?12800 (H: 25600) this means you will always get a great shot, no matter the lighting conditions. Canon is also giving you creative control over your shots with in-camera imaging features like HDR, HDR Backlight Control, Multiple Exposure, Handheld Night Scene, and Creative Filters.

20.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor

The EOS 70D camera’s 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor records a massive 5472 x 3648 pixels, perfect for even the biggest enlargements and offering enough resolution for significant cropping while maintaining the detail and essence of the particular scene. 14-bit signal processing ensures excellent tonal gradation and a wide ISO range of 100–12800 (H: 25600) ensures excellent image capture even in dim lighting situations. The EOS 70D camera’s image sensor combines with Canon’s powerful DIGIC 5+ Image Processor for improved data processing speeds, greater noise reduction, and even real-time compensation for chromatic aberration.

High speed continuous shooting up to 7.0 fps 

Capable of shooting up to 7.0 fps during continuous shooting, the EOS 70D is a perfect camera for quick action. Canon's remarkable shutter, combined with speedy, sophisticated electronics, ensures instant response and performance. A rapidly occurring scene can be captured moment by moment, second by second, so that even the briefest of opportunities are captured in perfect clarity.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF

The EOS 70D features Canon's all-new Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a revolutionary leap forward in speed and accuracy that unlocks the potential of Live View shooting. This game-changing technology will forever change what is possible with a DSLR camera.

Shoot Video Like a Camcorder 

The benefits of the groundbreaking Dual Pixel CMOS AF are clearly evident in video shooting, where bringing scenes and subjects into focus is a critical element of the final composition. On the EOS 70D, Dual Pixel CMOS AF helps ensure focus is achieved naturally and precisely, even when switching between subjects. And, combined with the predictive power of Movie Servo AF, subjects in motion are smoothly and consistently tracked – once the EOS 70D locks focus, it doesn't let go. Plus, with the shallow depth-of-field afforded by EOS optics, your video gains a cinematic ambience.

Compositional Freedom, Quick and Accurate Live View Focus

For stills, Dual Pixel CMOS AF makes Live View AF precise and faster than ever, freeing the photographer to take advantage of the freedom of angle afforded by the camera's Vari-angle LCD monitor. And, when composing and shooting in Live View mode, the image, exposure and chosen effects can be previewed before shooting, ensuring better accuracy.

Built-in Wi-Fi

In this day and age, not only is taking a great picture important, but posting and tweeting a great picture is essential! Canon has answered the call by incorporating built-in Wi-Fi technology into the EOS 70D Body. This will allow you to share your photos and videos and connect the camera directly to both iOS and Android devices, and upload images via the free Canon CameraWindow app without a computer.
