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.
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.
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
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
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..
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.
Excerpt: It's a nice kit but I'd say unless you're a professional photographer you won't use a lot of the stuff in the kit so maybe better to save the money and buy the camera separately and a few batteries etc.
