Offering most of what an enthusiast looks for in a digital SLR, the Canon 70D takes it a step further with excellent live view and movie mode autofocus. Good continuous shooting performance and Wi-Fi simply serve to sweeten the deal.

Dual Pixel AF makes movie and live view modes more usable, Good heft without being too large to hold, High ISO shots are quite usable, even above ISO 6400, Excellent LCD and responsive touchscreen, Special coating minimizes fingerprint smudges from...

Dual Pixel AF does not allow tracking autofocus while shooting continuously, Relatively small viewfinder, LCD blacks out completely during continuous shooting in live view, AF illuminator integrated into flash (must have flash engaged to use it),...

Canon EOS 70D

 

The Canon EOS 70D delivers the smoothest Live View focus we've seen in a traditional D-SLR, but it can struggle to lock that focus in dim light.

Smooth video autofocus. Articulating touch-screen LCD. Pentaprism optical viewfinder. Quick focus in most situations. 7fps continuous drive shooting. Lots of physical controls. Vertical grip add-on available. 1/250-second flash sync speed. Integrated...

Live View autofocus struggles in low light. Only one SD card slot. Lacks built-in GPS. No PC Sync socket. 1080p video is limited to 30fps. Cannot record video when Wi-Fi is enabled.

Like the full-frame 6D, the 70D integrates Wi-Fi (but there's no GPS like you'll find in the 6D and Sony Alpha 77). The implementation is similar to other Canon cameras: You can transfer photos to your smartphone or tablet via the free EOS Remote app,...

Canon EOS 70D

 

Thanks to Canon's new autofocus system, this $1,200 dSLR delivers on speed.

The Canon EOS 70D's new sensor delivers excellent autofocus performance and the camera itself is quite fast. Its design is reasonably streamlined and the feature set appropriately tailored to the target market as well.

The image quality doesn't overly impress for this price class, and certain aspects of the design -- notably single card slot, hard-to-control multicontroller and the Wi-Fi/movie mode conflict resolution -- are annoying.

An overall excellent camera, but one that fails to capture the best-in-class prize for image quality.

Image quality only improved slightly over 60D; Dynamic range still lags behind competing models; May not feature enough upgrades to convince people to step up from 60D.
