The embargo is finally off…meet the new Canon 70D.
What a busy month for Canon. After the introduction of the the EOS 100D/SL1 and the 700D now comes the new EOS 70D.
The new camera is equipped with the latest DIGIC 5+ engine and a much improved auto focus mechanism system.
It is yet to be seen how good the video quality coming out from this camera will be.
The first rumors about the next HDSLR cameras in line on Canon’s DSLR roadmap are coming in.
With Canon’s introduction of the 5D mark III 2 months ago some filmmakers are eager to see a more affordable version of the new generation of Canon’s HDSLRs.
For others the APS-C sized sensor which comes very close to the 35mm film format is an argument against the 5D mark III.
Unfortunately there are no dates mentioned for the release of these cameras yet but rumored specs lists are a good start. Published by canonrumors:
