Get Ready for a Game-Changer.

You’ve been waiting and now it’s finally here. Canon has officially announced the impending arrival of the EOS 70D – featuring incredible new autofocus technology unlocking the potential of Live View: Dual Pixel CMOS AF.

The EOS 70D captures video in Live View with smooth and precise autofocus similar to that of a camcorder, complete with the image quality you know and love from EOS cameras. What’s more, Dual Pixel CMOS AF provides fast and accurate autofocus during Live View still image capture, giving you freedom of the angles allowed by the Vari-angle Touch Screen 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor II.

To further empower the photographer, Canon engineers spent months ensuring that the cutting-edge Dual Pixel CMOS AF on the EOS 70D is compatible with 103 Canon EF lenses, greatly expanding creative possibilities. Built-in wireless technology and the EOS Remote app* further enhance shooting versatility, as well as enable easy sharing.

Brilliant image quality is provided by the EOS 70D’s 20.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor, a first for an EOS camera with an APS-C sized sensor. 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) that allows shooting in a wide variety of lighting conditions. Stunning photos can be accomplished using the remarkable 19-point all cross-type AF system with a high precision dual cross f/2.8 center point, and advanced display options available on the Intelligent Viewfinder supply exceptional control. In-camera imaging features like HDR, HDR Backlight Control, Multiple Exposure, Handheld Night Scene, and Creative Filters available in real time help turn even simple images into spectacular photos.
