Not perfect, but at least you can capture something quick in action!
In general it's a all purpose camera that would satisfy most photography need.
The focus area button is locate right at your finger tip so you don't have to move your eye off the view finder, this is rather convenient especially for birding photos.
The focusing system is not perfect, with its 7fps you can get a hit rate of 4-5 in focus pictures while shooting tiny objects like birds, you may get a better hit rate for larger objects in wildlife or sport.
As the camera also aims at shooting video, getting a STM lens is a must if you are a video guy.
Great camera, easy to use and produces high quality photos..
The 70d is a great camera, probably one of the next APS-C sensor cameras available. Photos are great, sometimes a little noisy and not quite as sharp as a buddies Nikon D3100, but the difference isn't enough to make me switch from Canon to Nikon. Video is also very good, great interface with auto focus and relatively good in low light. Would definitely recommend if you're not willing to spend the extra cash to get a full frame camera.
Just upgraded from a Canon EOS450D. The 70D at first looked a little complex but have been very pleasantly surprised by simple it is to use. Picture quality is perfect for my needs and the price didn't break the bank. Have yet to test all the features but am impressed so far.
Questions & Answers
Hi,to the person that mentioned the error 80 on the 70d - I had mine fixed by canon free of charge. They actually put out a recall for that fault, it only happened a couple of times with mine when I sent it in and it came back good as new, just wanted to let you know ( there is a recall section on the website) hope this helps
