I returned the 650D for part exchange for this camera - why? I'm planning to live on an island without access to immediate camera support and lenses will have to be shipped in one-by-one. A body without MFA is simply inconceivable. Furthermore, I enjoy shooting at very wide apertures. My experience with the 650D was a little hit and miss. The lenses I desperately wanted to work with the body didn't want to focus accurately or consistently. My plan was for a general zoom - the 18-135 STM and a ...

I have been using my new Canon 70d + EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 USM for a month now, and while I am very happy with it, I would like to share a few annoyances. Please comment, and if there are solutions, I would be very glad to know ! Answers like "RTFM" are accepted, IF you give the page number ;-) Here we go: - There is no automatic activation of top screen backlight, based on ambient light - There is no one click method to check focus (see http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54144589 or ...

I can't record with the Wi-Fi on, it literally does not make sense so I docked it half a star.

I recently purchased the 70D after my nikon D7100 Broke. A Protection plan let me trade it in for my 70D. Overall the Camera performs well. No real flaws (at least on my camera). The performance is fast and the autofocus performs quickly. Wifi Connection works well up to about 150-200 yards away from the camera (with a smartphone). The supplied 18-135 kit lens works great, and iso is not terrible up until about 4000. All in all a great camera for me (a semipro user).

I have been practicing photography as a hobby since 2011 and this is my upgrade form the t3i, it is amazing, very responsive, great at weddings, sports and nature photography, totally recomended. I considered the 7100 in the first place, but I loved the responsivness, shwiftness and low light preformace on this camera, which is way better than nikon´s competitor Totally recommended

I originally posted a thread asking for advice regarding choosing between a 70D and 6D for "action" needs, coming from a 60D. I also was concerned about low-light performance, hence the inclusion of the 6D in the conversation. R2D2 (on this forum) recommended I share what I posted as a follow up to the thread after I purchased the 70D. I hope it's helpful to someone! I search CL on a daily basis for camera equipment and just last week came across a 70D being offered for sale. It turns out the ...

I bought this as a capable APS-C to my collection. In the cropped category I have a Fuji X100s and a 100D. What grabbed me about the 70D is its AF. I could have bought a 7D body for a little less, but the 70D has enough additional features to make it a little more attractive. What I have found is that the 70D is a great all-rounder. It's brilliant at capturing kids at play, dogs running around and street photography. I recently used the 70D at a wedding and found that I used it equally as ...

I am in a point of transition for my small "for my wife" camera. I have had a sony 5N which I sold recently. My wife loved using it, b/c of its small size, articulating screen and better AF for video. My primary camera is a 5d3, that is use with some primes and zooms, which I love. I have owned many of canon's camera, including the 60D and 7D, when I was more heavily in to wild life (BIF mostly). So, with that background in mind, I picked up the 70D to try out. some thoughts I love the size. ...
