  • Summary: This camera has a distinctive cheap lightweight plastic feel compared to the 5D3, and 1DX, and even at this value price point, Canon should have used metal instead of plastic. The ISO is mediocre and the low light sensitivity is really not good at all. The lack of a support for CompactFlash was a real let down.

Solid entry level DSLR

  • Excerpt: I have purchased 10 of these cameras for my high school photography and film making classes.Generally easy to use, durable, standard Canon menus, lovely images.This product would be drastically improved with these two improvements--headphone jack to monitor sound when recording movies, and the ability to change f-stop in Av mode while shooting movies (you have to change to photo mode, change f-stop , then change back to movie mode IN APERTURE PRIORITY! (WHY!!

It's OK!

  • Summary: I bought this camera in preference to the recently-released 7D MkII because I wanted the touch screen which I had found exceptionally useful in my EOS Rebel 5Ti/700D. After testing the EOS 70D body with my existing Canon lenses, I am frankly unable to discern any difference in image quality in comparison to the former.

Love the 70D…slight AF issue

photogjb, Canon
22 October 2014
  • Conclusion: Been a Canon user since my A1. I love all of the features this camera provides. My only issue was with the autofocus thru the view finder. I also purchased a canon 85mm 1.8 and found my shots to be slightly off focus when shooting thru the viewfinder at 1.8 versus the LCD. I did the micro adjustment but that only fixed it slightly.

A very "in the middle" cámera

OsoDeAnteojos, Amazon
30 September 2014
  • Summary: Very robust camera Pros: Easy to use (If you have use an SLR before) Great quality Compatible with every EFS lenses Fast and silent shutter Cons (Comparable to other SLR Canon cameras): Heavy Bulky Battery runs out fast This is a "in the middle camera" for a profesional and an starter. If you are starting with Photography buy a EOS T5i. For a pro user save your money for a 6D.

I really liked the camera

  • Summary: First of all , I really liked the camera. However, I was extremely disappointed with the other accessories. Camera begs are useless, I tried putting my camera in there but it doesn't stay in their securely. So I ended up buying beg from local retailer. I wish instead of two completely useless beg ,They should have provided one beg where you can put two lenses and camera securely.

Not so happy with this camera

zbulut, B&H Photo
11 September 2014
  • Excerpt: In its marketing push to bump up number of megapixels Canon has short changed on the image quality. I was able to obtain the same if not better results with my old Cannon Digital Rebel with 6 megapixels. I am considering returning this camera. Glad I bought at B&H. The video features are good and that may be a reason to keep it. The lens is exceptional if you need image stabilization.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light, Short Battery Life

Wait on purchasing until bugs are fixed

NTSPS, Canon
18 August 2014
  • Conclusion: This well-built camera following the 7D, with its breakthrough technology sensor, needs bugs fixed before I recommend anyone buying it. The autofocus system does not work as well as older camera models and the microadjustment tool does not help. The focus issue is a shame since Canon is known for its crisp, sharp images. The camera also has high noise levels and problems working at low ISO levels.
  • Pros: good battery life, Nice features/settings, Quick Start-up time, Superior build quality, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
  • Cons: Poor image quality, noisy, poor focusing
