Canon EOS 70D goes official
As expected, Canon today unveiled its latest prosumer digital single lens reflex (dSLR) camera, the EOS 70D. The camera is a 20.2-megapixel camera with APS-C sensor, a DIGIC 5+ processor and a newly developed Dual Pixel CMOS AF system. If Canon is to be believed, the EOS 70D is close to a camcorder in terms of video recording quality, AF accuracy and speed. Other prominent features include built-in Wi-Fi, a 19-point AF system a maximum frame rate of 7fps and microAF adjustment, a feature you cannot find on the EOS 60D.
It should be noted that EOS 70D will come with a EOS Remote app that allows you to connect the camera with an iOS or Android device as well as a computer or printer via a Wi-Fi connection in order to transfer photos, videos or settings from your device or system.
If everything goes as planned by Canon, the EOS 70D will hit the market in September. The body-only version is priced at $1199.
