Great Video; AF system not reliable

JEP, B&H Photo
30 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I had high hopes for this camera. In numerous tests over the course of a few weeks I discovered that the AF system (at least for my camera) was not reliable. Seems to work fine for video (and by the way the video quality is fantastic); but in full Auto, and some of the other modes it is clear that the AF system gets confused; even when you specify where you want the 19 points to be; i noticed it even when using a flash.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Poor In Low Light

Don't buy a kit with a bag

Rachel, Adorama
13 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I would have rated this bundle four stars if not for the frustrating experience I've had with customer service surrounding the bag that was sent with the kit. My kit had the body and two lenses (an 18-135 and a 55-250), and the bag that was sent with the kit only fits the body and one lens. It seems pointless for them to send a bag that doesn't fit the kit, especially when there are similarly-priced bags on their site that do.

Excellent camera the rest not so great!

Andrew Salanik, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • Summary: Not hating but there are a few things that needs mentioning. Why did you send me 3 batteries and one of them do not fit the camera? Also, only the filters along with the macro wide lenses only match the 58mm telephoto lens. The regular 55mm has no filters nor am I able to attach the other two lens. Other than that the camera is beautiful but for the price I expected a bit more than a telephoto lens start up kit.

Focus problem in basic mode

GLG, Adorama
27 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I've gone through two of these cameras now and both have had the same focus problem issues. Using the basic auto mode and looking through the viewfinder yielded un-sharp photos. Apparently, the 19-point auto-focus system was flawed, not focusing on the points indicated in the viewfinder, but on something closer in the frame. For instance, focusing not on the person sitting at a table, but on the edge of the table lower in the frame.
  • Cons: Poor Image Quality

Bounce flash underexposure

RSCPA, B&H Photo
31 March 2014
  • Excerpt: As is the case with many other owners' experience with the 70D, mine is also extremely underexposing my indoor low light bounce/diffuser flash photos. Whether I'm bouncing the 430ex II flash off a white ceiling that's about eight feet high or using a Sto-fen diffuser attached to it. Whether the lens being used is the Canon 15-85 or the 55-250 STM, all low light indoor photos with the diffuser attached and with the flash head tilted 45 degrees, or 180 degrees, or direct...
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Tilt /Swivel LCD

Disapointed

Mick, Canon
27 March 2014
  • Conclusion: I purchased the EOS70D to replace my Canon Power Shot. I wanted something that was faster and that had more versatility. The first images that I shot with the camera the day that I received it had a very noticeable black spot in the upper right quadrant. I Just got the camera back after having the PCB and CMOS sensor replaced.

I had problems in just two days.

Paula, B&H Photo
10 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I could use the camera just twice, and The view finder is not working properly anymore. It shows a busy message. It seems that the viewfinder is off on its focus. When I use auto focus, the viewfinder is out of focus but the image actually captured is in focus.
