canon eos 70d announcement
Feature that canon 70D will contain are as follow:
- Newly designed 20.2 megapixel sensor
- Digic5+ image processor to accompany it along with a 19-point AF system (all cross type)
- AF system will be the big announcement -Dubbed Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus
- Onboard Wi-Fi just like the Canon EOS 6D
- 3-inch Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD (just like the EOS 650D)
- in-camera HDR
- HDR video
It is yet to be seen as to what is so new and unique about this AF system (or whether it will be in the 70D at all), but July 2nd isn’t that far away.
It would be very interesting to see how Canon manages to implement in-camera HDR video with just a single Digic+ chip, as HDR in general requires heavy processing. It would also be interesting to see the format and compression of this footage and how much room it would give editors to play around.
One thing that 7D lacked is the feature that was present in 6D flipping of screen for video work
If it happen that Canon EOS 70D get released tommorow with all this feature, then it would be an impressive bridge between the 60D and the 7D.It would match the powers of the 7D (at least), which was mighty impressive in its own right, often being the backup camera of choice for many sports photographers.
