I was better off buying the Canon EOS 70D by itself and ...
6 days ago
Summary: I gave it 1 not because of the Canon EOS 70D, but the accessories that came with it. Yes, it came with a lot, but they all junk. The tripod was a joke. It is so flimpse that I'm afraid to place the camera on top of it. The extra batteries seems to last only 30 minutes.... on and on.... It seems that the extra stuff are from their shelf that they cannot sell. I feel they bundle these things to remove from their inventory. I really regretted buying this bundle.
Conclusion: I have nothing much to say about this camera when image quality is so poor. Everything else just do not matter. I purchased it based on many reviews but I am selling it now. I do not need the fastest AF if I am not happy with both RAW and JPEG quality. Rear wheel, directional pad, buttons are awkward. Battery life is dropped significantly if you switch live view for several times. Overall, for camera this price I am deeply disappointed.
Cons: Shaky operation, Poor image quality, Poor build quality, noisy, Short battery life, Heavy/Bulky, fast af
Conclusion: Hello Canon, My first cam was AE1 P, Second is 350D, Presently Third is 70D. Iam confused with this cam, as Auto ISO is limited from 100-400 when using built in or External Speedlight. Recently I faced a situation in a party where I used AV mode as one side people were in dark, under a tent and opposite side people were in bright open area. I put F-Stop of 5.6. I put my external speedlight to E-TTL.
Pros: good battery life, Quick Start-up time, excellent image quality, Superior build quality, Bright LCD, Lightweight/Portable, easy to use
Cons: Missing features/settings, Difficult to use, not fully customizable camera
Excerpt: The focusing issues with this camera are terrible using the view finder. I shoot professionally and never, ever would use the live view screen for shooting. I am now having to re-shoot a customers family portraits which is intolerable, due to unfocused portraits using both TV and AV modes. Very disappointed. There is NO DETAIL in eyes/eye lashes, fingers etc...just horrible..made me want to barf. I am hoping the 3rd camera I receive isn't such a HUGE disappointment.
Summary: 1- The Camera is Canon 70D, which is very good and the camera with 18-55 lens is being sold at $1140 in most of the websites. 2- The 75-300 lens is also canon but NOT STM! the price is about $190 3- I tried one of the batteries, it worked almost 200 shots mixed with flash or without flash.
Conclusion: Hi, I am an old canon user and I just upgraded from my 60D to my 70D. This is a great camera, but I am very disappointed with the popup flash. I dont know why but the camera in A+ mode it takes what every she wants. The light of every photo is different and very underexposed. I cant believe that something so simple like this doesnt work in a camera of this level. Is there any fix for this? Sorry about my English.
Bought this camera for its auto-focus, returned this camera due to autofocus
thank you, Amazon

Summary: 1. The 19 point autofocus system, when using auto-select mode in the viewfinder, consistently miss-focus the pictures, with my Canon 300mm F4 IS L lens. (The situation is much better when using liveview auto-focus. ) 2. The 19 point autofocus, when using auto-select mode in the viewfinder, will ONLY focus on the closest subject, no matter what the main subject of the frame is.
Summary: Arrived quickly as promised, but would not recognize or format mem card. Radio Shack folks provided several types listed in the manual as acceptable , but none worked. Returned for replacement - hope it's OK!
