The EOS 70D features Canon’s all-new Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a revolutionary leap forward in speed and accuracy that unlocks the potential of Live View shooting. This game-changing technology will forever change what is possible with a DSLR camera.
Shoot Video Like a Camcorder
The benefits of the groundbreaking Dual Pixel CMOS AF are clearly evident in video shooting, where bringing scenes and subjects into focus is a critical element of the final composition. On the EOS 70D, Dual Pixel CMOS AF helps ensure focus is achieved naturally and precisely, even when switching between subjects. And, combined with the predictive power of Movie Servo AF, subjects in motion are smoothly and consistently tracked once the EOS 70D locks focus, it doesn’t let go. Plus, with the shallow depth-of-field afforded by EOS optics, your video gains a cinematic ambience.
Compositional Freedom, Quick and Accurate Live View Focus
For stills, Dual Pixel CMOS AF makes Live View AF precise and faster than ever, freeing the photographer to take advantage of the freedom of angle afforded by the camera’s Vari-angle LCD monitor. Whether capturing images of athletes on the field or kids in the park with a tripod or handheld and operated from a number of angles and positions crisp focus can be obtained nearly instantly across a wide shooting area, especially useful for those spontaneous or fleeting shots. And, when composing and shooting in Live View mode, the image, exposure and chosen effects can be previewed before shooting, ensuring better accuracy, increased comfort, and more control from the start.
Compatible with 103◊ Canon EF Lenses
103◊ Canon EF lenses are able to fully realize the benefits of Dual Pixel CMOS AF. Compatible lenses greatly expand creative and compositional possibilities so users can enjoy a wide range of endeavors made possible through various lenses whether shooting still images or video.

The Genius of Pixel Based AF
Dual Pixel CMOS AF is a cutting-edge Canon technology, made possible by a sophisticated redesigning of the CMOS sensor. Traditionally, image sensors have one photodiode per pixel, but the CMOS sensor on the EOS 70D has two photodiodes per pixel, enabling each pixel on the sensor to both perform phase-difference detection autofocus and capture light a first for EOS cameras. With phase-difference detection AF, autofocus is achieved quickly and easily on the camera. This unique AF system enables autofocus on 80% of the image plane, vertically and horizontally, and helps ensure virtually no loss in image quality.
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.
