Canon EOS 70D (W) with EF-S 18-55mm IS STM lens kit unboxing and first 'hands on' review.
This is an unboxing of the new Canon EOS 70D (W) with EF-S 18-55mm IS STM lens kit. The Canon 70D replaces the 60D aimed at the semi-professional and amateur DSLR photography enthusiast, with some enhancements particularly attractive to the user interested in recording video. This hands on video also shows the EF-S 18--55mm IS STM Canon lens.
Some of the improvements and changes that the Canon 70D has made over the EOS 60D include:
- A 20.2 MP CMOS Sensor (18.1 MP CMOS on 60D)
- DIGIC 5+ camera processor (DIGIC 4 on 60D)
- 19 point AF System, all cross-type (9 points, all cross-type on 60D)
- 7 frames per second continuous photographic shooting (5.3 for 60D)
- Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity on the Canon 70D (no WiFi on the Canon 60D)
- 3 inch Vari-Angle Touch Screen LCD (no touchscreen on 60D)
- ISO 12,800 maximum (25,600 expanded) -- compare to 6,400 (12,800 expanded) on the Canon 60D
- Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus (only standard contrast-detection in live view on 60D)
- The 70D allows the use of high precision phase-detection autofocus in live view, functional across 80% of the frame down to 0EV and f/11
- Change in some of the camera controller buttons (70D) on the rear of the camera to suit some people ergonomically
- Slightly smaller body size
- Full HD EOS Movies on the Canon 70D
- Water and Dust resistant - environmentally sealed
- AF microadjustment
- HDR (not available in-camera on 60D)
- Multi exposure Mode (not available on 60D)
- Exposure bracketing of up to 7 frames (3 for 60D)
- One SD/SDHC/SDXC slot, fully exploiting UHS-I speed class (same as 60D, except UHS-I is not supported)
- Although UHS-I cards can be used on the 60D, they will default to the lower Class 10 speed.
- The Canon 70D is USB 2.0 the same as the 60D. I think they should have upgraded to the new standard of USB 3 - especially due to the large file sizes video users produce.
- The 70D uses the same LP-E6 Canon Battery as the Canon 60D
