Inacurate focussuing!!!

LHphotography, Canon
6 days ago
  • Conclusion: I bought this camera as a backup. At first I loved the fast focussing! After looking at my images critically in post I realised there was something seriously wrong as most of my images were very soft and just not sharp at all! I started setting up various tests for the camera and all of them confirmed that there was a problem. I found that focussing using Live view was much better and I think that may be due to the duel pixel technology. Not sure..
  • Pros: Nice features/settings, Bright LCD, Lightweight/Portable
  • Cons: Poor image quality

BAIT AND SWITCH

Mary Hockett Thoma "mrsjetjr", Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: FOCUS Camera did not send this camera and kit PACKAGE BUNDLE sent it. There were no "FOCUS" camera items in the bundle I received. This is something like bait and switch isn't it? It is Missing items listed as part of the kit. I specifically ordered this kit for the combination of items I wanted. I should have just ordered a camera body with 2 lens and saved $300.00. Buyer be ware this "kit" will not be received as advertised.

SL1 autofocus more accurate in low light

DA Photo, B&H Photo
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: This was my second 70d. Sold the first one to get a 6d. I do a lot of event photography. First let me say that in every situation except low light, I was pleased with the 70d. But in low light it did not perform well. Both my first and second copies of the 70d had this problem, but the second was worse. I compared it with my SL1 in the exact same low light situation. The 70d hunted and never locked on.
  • Cons: Poor autofocus

Excellent for Landscape Photography

Robert Marcos Studios, Amazon

  • Summary: I am a full-time professional photographer so there's a lot I could say about this new camera. But instead I'll just share my experience. I downsized my business three years ago and have been operating with a single Canon 60D body. In those 3 years I've worked at conventions around the US, photographed weddings, and more recently produced over hundred promo videos for beauty manufacturers. The little Canon 60D is a powerhouse of a camera which never let me down.

Disappointed with accessories

  • Summary: Just bought this camera from Beach Camera and very disappointed with the accessories that came with the camera. Tripod, cleaning kits, filters and bag is a joke. So it is not a great value.

Canon 70D

S. palmer, Amazon
7 April 2014
  • Summary: I love the camera but the lenses are not the best. If know anything about cameras and lenses look for a good deal on the body and buy the lenses separate. I still haven't priced every thing out but I believe I may have bought this package cheaper piece by piece but this being my first camera purchase this sounded like a good deal. You do get a lot in the package but other then the body nothing is above low to mid range equipment.

Focus problems when using view finder.

sayitfast, Canon
28 March 2014
  • Conclusion: I love the features of this camera but there is an issue when focusing using the view finder and the center focus point. It's summed up nicely in this youtube review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cA6JnzYSDJE If they could get this fixed this camera would be awesome... but for someone wanting to shoot BIF I would stick with the 7D.

Feature rich, but average performance

staler, B&H Photo
18 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I upgraded from a T2i and wanted something with a crop sensor that feels a bit more rugged. I also own the 6D and they are very similar in size and handling (which in my book is a plus). I like the features it offers and the fact that the menu is practically identical to the 6D is great. The touch swivel screen is nice, but I have yet to find a clear need for it.
  • Pros: Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Poor In Low Light
