I can see this being put out some old chaps entranced in some old Japanese seniority traditions, barely caching up with FB, Twitter or cloud services.
Designed by committee!
Paper weight!
FYI Canon's Image Gateway service is TOP JUNK, doesn't accept RAW files !!! LOL
Looks good, all I can say, but just another useless brick.

Bogdan Spineanu: Wow .. if you make sensor pixels larger you can capture more light ! Why didn't I think of that ? Revolutionary !

@Silvarum, bigger sensor is a consequence of larger pixels, but the sensor size is SET at 24x36mm. This is the given situation. Not at all subject of discussion. The sensor size it is that, and that's all there is about it.
So you increase the receptor size. So what did Canon do ? Made a sensor with 1920 pixels on the long side, and if you do a bit of math, you are going to come with 18.75um available per pixel.
And this is how you capture more light. Of course, you could put 1920px on a full frame camera back, but this is another discussion.
@all I still don't see what is so amazing to make a sensor with big pixels. Bigger pixels, yes, you are gonna see fireflies ... What took them so long ?

While it seems like a good deal, having to pay a monthly fee always gives me the shivers. After working with Photoshop for over 10 years, I came to the conclusion that it's not that good. There a quite a few obvious things that need a major update, tools that need to be revamped, a workflow that needs better design. Photoshop needs a good shake, an Steve Jobs, maybe.
I suggest trolls and smart asses and righteous people, preachers and the like to stay away from commenting on this. Go watch some rocks growing or something.

Randompunter: I don't know how the woman eats the pizza whilst maintaining white teeth and perfectly pink lipstick? Is that new Canon technology? It may not be everything you ever wanted but come on folks how long have we been begging for a new sensor? It has better but not ground breaking AF and Continuous Shooting, and the live/video AF looks impressive. If I was stood in front of your 50D, 60D, 650D, 700D with a magic wand and said that one wave and it is a 70D you'd bite my arm off (obviously the one without the wand in). Even 7D owners would have to think about it.

This video it's not a documentary. Not a news video.
And there is good lipstick out there that stays on through a slice of pizza. :)
Don't get caught in the scrubby look of everything.

It was a really bad day when I choose to go with Canon about 10 years ago.
It's been a long time since I had that wonderful feeling for any Canon camera, that I HAVE to HAVE this camera. No butterflies in the stomach. Not for this camera.
No USB 3.0 ?
The only thing I find interesting .. the touch sensitive dial.
If you weren't taking good pictures before .. this one is not going to help you much more.
Full HD video @ 29.97 ? What is that ? No 30 ? No thanks !
No word on uncompressed HDMI ouput .. guess they forgot about that.

Again .. this camera brings no warm tingly sensation for me.
My 40D won't get retired for another 2-3 years. Poor old 40D ;-(
Better not fail .. cause if it does .. there's no Canon out there that I can buy without hating myself.

So, as a Canon owner .. Canon thinks probably they are the "Apple" of photography with these prices.
What .. GPS tracking and it isn't compatible with older cameras ? No software syncing of GPS data ?
That wireless transmitter is as expensive as a laptop !
For God Sake Canon !
That was a stupid day when I choose to go with Canon !
