best Canon pro enthusist camera
Upgrade from the Canon Rebel 3ti. Huge improvements. I didn't think I would use the touch screen but I just love it for FAST changes to f stop or ISO without pushing buttons and wheel. Very good feel to hand with a solid grip. Not much heavier than the Rebel but a more solid feel. This camera has tons of features over the rebel and worth every penny (dollar) difference especially if you already have a collection of EF or EF-S lenses. I have had this for four months and have taken probably 4000 images (went on two photo workshops) I took both the 70D and the Rebel thinking I could swap between each fitted wioth different lenses. I ended up using the 70D almost exclusively as it felt more secure, more features, touch screen, level.

Dual Pixal Game Changer
This camera is underrated. I can now have pin point focus while using my steadicam, jib, slider and shoulder rig without me or an extra person pulling focus!! Brings up my production value. Although there are some features that were left out, I was shocked buy the price.

Why this camera works for me!
I have a condition called "essential mixed tremors" which previously forced me to shoot only with a tripod and a remote shutter release. Hand held shots with my Canon 50D were always very soft or even blurry. High ISO settings helped but left the image grainy and off tone and still not tack sharp. I purchased an L lens with Image Stabilization and this helped if I shot in AI Servo mode. I was about to give up on photography when I read the reviews on the Canon EOS 70D. They led me to believe that this camera might allow me to shoot fast enough in normal light situations to hand hold and obtain sharp images. I bought the 70D and have tested it indoors in rather low light situations, outdoors on a gloomy day, and outdoors in normal late afternoon light. I hand held the indoor shots at 1200 ISO with tack sharp results. I hand held all shots outdoors varying the ISO from 800 to 1600. The lower ISOs produced sharp results. The higher ISOs produced tack sharp results. If anyone has a similar condition, this camera, the EOS 70D, is definitely the GAME CHANGER!!! Thank you Canon!!!!

New EOS 70D does not disappoint!
Got this camera for Christmas and have already shot over 350 photos in five days. I am upgrading from a Canon SX40 superzoom which I have used to take thousands of photos. The 70D is my first DSLR, and I love it! The camera has a nice sturdy feel in my hands but doesn't feel any heavier than my SX40. It will take me a while to become familiar with all the controls and settings, but I've been totally impressed with the results just with using mainly the auto settings. The touch screen provides easy access to settings and being able to touch the screen on the point on which you want to focus and have it take the photo is so easy. Menu and other controls seem well-located and easy to use.
The wifi function is a great feature. I downloaded the EOS app onto my iPhone and in a matter of minutes had synced the camera and phone. I love that you can review your photos right on your phone and even operate the camera remotely. I also used the app on my iPad with equal success. The camera sends out it's own wifi signal to create a network for the phone to connect to, so you could make a connection anywhere. I love photographing the many birds around our home and can't wait to set up my tripod and camera and be able to remotely take photos.
I've also taken several photos in low light with the flash turned off, and the results have been really good.
Can't wait to explore more of what I can do with this camera! I am definitely loving it so far!
