Canon has officially announced the successor to the 60D, the Canon EOS 70D. It follows the same build and features as the older 60D but with additional features like a dual-pixel CMOS sensor.
The Canon 70D sits between the older 7D and the 60D but Canon introduced the dual-pixel CMOS in order to capture better video at faster focus times. It’s actually almost the same body size and design as the 60D.
Canon EOS 70D specs:
20.2MP APS-C Dual-Pixel CMOS AF sensor
IGIC 5+ Image Processor
7fps continuous shot
ISO 100-12800 (25600 expanded)
19-point AF system
1080p video @ 30fps
3.2″ touch-sensitive ClearView II LCD
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
This sample promotional video from canon shows a lot of recording tricks and capabilities of the camera:
Looks like Canon is focusing on video recording rather than still picture quality of the 70D.
The Canon 70D will retail for $1,199 for the body only or $1,349 with the 18-55 STM lens, or $1,549 with the 18-135 STM lens. No word on pricing and release date for the Philippines yet.
