Offering the highest pixel count of any APS-C sized sensor in EOS history, the EOS 70D camera’s 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor records a massive 5472 x 3648 pixels, perfect for even the biggest enlargements and offering enough resolution for significant cropping while maintaining the detail and essence of the particular scene. 14-bit signal processing ensures excellent tonal gradation and a wide ISO range of 10012800 (H: 25600) ensures excellent image capture even in dim lighting situations. The EOS 70D camera’s image sensor combines with Canon’s powerful DIGIC 5+ Image Processor for improved data processing speeds, greater noise reduction, and even real-time compensation for chromatic aberration.
14-bit A/D conversion
With 14-bit analog-to-digital conversion, the EOS 70D captures and records images with remarkable gradations and detail in subtle tones and colors, resulting in more realistic and detailed images. By recording up to 16,384 colors per channel, the EOS 70D ensures that the fine detail found in subjects like foliage, sky and water are preserved and recorded with a tremendous level of accuracy, ensuring gorgeous results.
ISO 10012800 and expandable to 25600 in H mode
Thanks to its DIGIC 5+ Image Processor, the EOS 70D features an expanded ISO range of ISO 10012800 (expandable to 25600 in H mode) that makes shooting possible in situations previously unthinkable without flash. The EOS 70D, with the DIGIC 5+ Image Processor’s remarkable noise-reduction technology, performs brilliantly in low-light shooting. Used with one of Canon’s EF or EF-S lenses with Optical Image Stabilizer, the EOS 70D can record beautiful images even when light sources are scarce.
DIGIC 5+ Image Processor
For a whole new level of performance, the EOS 70D uses a DIGIC 5+ Image Processor. Working with two 4-channel A/D converter front-end processing circuits, and delivering speeds of up to 7.0 fps continuous shooting, the DIGIC 5+ Image Processor improves data processing performance and features algorithms that promote greater noise reduction at higher ISOs. In addition to conventional image processing functions, the DIGIC 5+ Image Processor offers real-time compensation for chromatic aberration in both still and motion images. With the power of this processor, speed improvements are noticeable from the instant the camera is turned on. The stunning results speak for themselves.
far better than 60d
made smaller but great performer
cant beatmark 3

Better then 7d
This camera is by far better then my 7d, My 7d does not have 20 mp my 7d does not have touch screen my 7d does not have wifi my 70d is as almost fast as my 7d with 7 frames a second one frame less wow, my 70d has the same 19 point cross type auto focus. I use my 7d as a back up Camera now
P.s my 7d does not have dual pixel c mos sensor

While not a full magnesium body chasis, the build quality and feel is outstanding. For this price the many features are superb, including the touch screen. Used with the kit 18-135 lens, very happy. With the EF 70-200 L II IS USM, incredibly fast and accurate. Focusing with the live view video is best in class with either lens. Can't wait to try with the 100mm macro lens. Any complaints you might read online regarding the still quality are unfounded when you use good glass. This new camera and dual pixel technology is going to be the forerunner of much greater things to come from Canon. Invest in good glass and let the camera do its magic. Cons: Missing dual card slot and audio mic input for avid video shooters. GPS also a miss.

I received my 70D about a week ago. I had read all the reviews and seen You-Tube video's talking about the camera. But until you can have one in your hand, you cannot experience the true wonder of this Camera. I own a 60D [a wonderful camera], but this one is head and shoulders above the 60D. Faster in FPS, much quicker Live View. HDR and Backlit Portraits. The video portion is what I was really interested in and it has worked flawlessly. Now I can film my little nephews soccer games for the whole family to enjoy. I love the 19 point AF as it gives me much greater coverage in all modes. This is my 3rd Canon DSLR and it is the best one for the APS-C users. I am going to enjoy using this for years to come.
