Canon just announced the new Canon 70D, and it is one of their best video DSLRs yet.
For a long time there was a disconnect between Canon DSLRs in my mind… We had a new rebel coming out every 5 minutes with touch flip-out screens and auto focus features, and then the 60D, a solid camera with a proper ISO range to match it’s big brother’s. FINALLY we have a new camera with all of the goodness from the rebel line, WITH better settings and build quality.
It is soooooo good to finally see a different sensor from Canon in their APS-C line. Looks like we are leaving the 18MP sensor behind and moving onto a more light sensitive 20MP sensor. We are also getting the codec record settings of the higher end cameras as well as some other features. Check out the camera specs below.
