Hi all, This will be my final review of the 70d for wildlife. I have had this camera for a few months now, and have been using it extensively with my sigma 150-600 contemporary. This is my first “ real” camera. The build quality is very good. It does not feel to heavy for me, the size is fine, and the button/dial placement is actually quite good. The menu system is easy to use. I find it nice how I can customize quite a few of the buttons, including back button AF. This brings us to the ...

Hi all, I purchased a canon 70d for wildlife ( mostly bird) photography. These are my thoughts after two weeks. The lens I’m currently using is the canon 75-300m. The lens isn’t that great, but in a month and a half, I’ll be getting the sigma 150-600 contemporary. pros of the camera. Good shooting speed, 7fps. easy to use, good dial placement great easy to use menu system. good that I can use back button focusing good autofocus. Autofocus is accurate, and fairly fast. ( it’ll probably be ...

let me start with the only negative point: ISO noise kicks in far too early otherwise everything is good. colour rendition excellent and predictable (although not very saturated), and offer a solid starting point for further post processing, DPAF works good, it seems to read your mind when focusing, and lets you concentrate more on the artistic side of photography and less on the gear. it's not for beginners, and would rather recommend it to a control freak, who wants to be able to precisely ...

Pros: - Good grip, button location (except the dof button, see below) - Liveview autofocus: quick and accurate, no need to use manual focus on a tripod no more; - Good for sports: 7 fps and 19 all cross type focus points; - Articulated LCD screen: very handy when taking shots using a tripod; - electronic level in the viewfinder: no more tilted shots! - High ISO shots at jpeg: multi-exposure noise reduction does magic; - Brighter viewfinder compared to the lower end Canon DSLR's; - Extra ...

I have had this model [70D] for over 18 months and I used it on 2 European trips. The IQ is superb, and I am getting excellent results when I shoot in low light. But the best part for me is in the video arena. I do not have to worry about focusing, I just set it up and shoot. I get excellent quality 1080P-HD. I shoot mainly in-town scenes and architecture while traveling. I know they put out the newer 80D, but I see not reason for upgrading at this time. If the noise is high, then I use ...

Got the camera for X-mas, great photos and video, also lightweight.

I actually sold my 7D and bought this, because of the articulated screen. Being only 5'9" tall, its come in handy for over the crowd shots and many other positions I've gotten into over the past two years. Although the 7D was a bit more sturdy, I haven't tried to drive any nails with this one, so its been just plain amazing. There going to have to put out something game-changing to get me to consider "upgrading". Just MHO, of course.

I owned the 70D before one year , but it is having focusing issue from the beginning. I have given this for servicing but still it is not resolved. I have a request to #Canon , after buying this camera I was not able to do my works with this. Now I'm taking camera rental for my purposes, I hope you can understand my problem. Please help me.

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 ...
