Compatible with the full line of Canon EF and EF-S lenses
The EOS 70D is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF lineup, including compact and lightweight EF-S lenses, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses and including the STM series optimized for video shooting. Canon lenses employ advanced optical expertise and micron-precision engineering to deliver outstanding performance and deliver beautiful results. Special technologies like Canon’s Optical Image Stabilizer help to minimize the effect of camera shake, effectively adding up to four stops of light; STM lenses even feature a stepping motor for smooth and quiet continuous autofocus while capturing video. With an array of lenses perfect for travel, sports, still life and everything in between, photographers can truly maximize the quality and performance of their EOS 70D camera.
Multi Shot Noise Reduction
To enhance its already admirable high ISO shooting capabilities, the EOS 70D camera features an intelligent Multi Shot Noise Reduction tool that reduces noise even further than the camera’s sensor and the DIGIC 5+ Image Processor do. With Multi Shot Noise Reduction activated, the camera takes four consecutive shots, merges and aligns them. This eliminates more noise than the camera’s traditional Noise Reduction filter, with little or no apparent resolution loss. Moving subjects are even optimized to minimize subject blur! Thanks to this clever feature, high ISO shooting has never looked better.
Lens Aberration Correction
The EOS 70D features lens correction tools that compensate for lens characteristics that can affect overall image quality. The EOS 70D camera’s Peripheral Illumination Correction feature corrects light falloff in the corner of the image according to the characteristics of the lens being used. It even has correction data for a number of popular lenses stored in its memory. With the chromatic aberration correction tool, distracting color fringing can be corrected at the time of shooting.
To help explain the specific function of features found on the EOS 70D, the Feature Guide displays a simple description helpful in determining the applicability for the situation at hand. It is displayed in each shooting mode, during mode dial operations, and for Quick Control screen functions. It appears automatically when a function is selected a lifesaver when trying to determine the best mode or function for the next picture. The feature guide works automatically by default, and can be disabled easily through the camera’s menu.
With the optional GPS Receiver GP-E2 attached to the hot shoe or the digital terminal, the EOS 70D can record location, including latitude, longitude and altitude, and has the ability to track the trajectory of movement with its logging function, perfect for photographers on the go. An electric compass records the camera’s orientation during each shot, and world time information is recorded through GPS syncing.
To help organize images recorded to the camera’s storage, the EOS 70D makes it simple to rate individual images from one star to five. Therefore, image browsing, printing and slide shows can be based upon those ratings.
Compatibility with SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards, including Ultra High Speed (UHS-I) cards
The EOS 70D uses popular SD, SDHC, SDXC, and is even compatible with Ultra High Speed (UHS-I), memory cards. Compact and available in large capacities, SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards are a perfect complement to the camera’s compact design.

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!
