20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5+

The high performance EOS 70D combines a 20.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and a powerful DIGIC 5+ image processor to deliver 14-bit images that are packed with detail and clarity. Colours are reproduced accurately whilst tonal gradation is subtle and natural.

Capture the moment

Capturing superb shots of fast paced action like sports or wildlife is easy with 7fps full resolution continuous shooting and a high performance 19 cross-type point AF System, which provides high precision, responsiveness and accuracy to capture the moment with high image quality.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF

The Canon 70D is the first camera to feature Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, enabling fast and smooth autofocus tracking whilst shooting movies. Each pixel features two photo diodes that can be read independently during autofocus or together to capture the image.

FULL HD movies

The EOS 70D delivers stunning Full-HD (1080p) video with fast accurate autofocus thanks to Canon’s unique Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. Explore your creativity with stereo sound, full manual control and selectable frame rates.

Wi-Fi sharing and control

Shoot remotely from alternative viewpoints: connect and control your EOS 70D using your PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone. Images can be reviewed and transferred wirelessly and instantly shared with family and friends.

Powerful low-light performance

When light levels fall, the Canon EOS 70D keeps performing. It offers an ISO range of up to 12800 – expandable to 25600 – so you can capture superb handheld shots in low light without using flash.

Shoot comfortably from a range of angles

Use the intuitive touch controls to shoot from unique or awkward angles with a 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 Vari-angle ClearView II LCD capacitive touch screen, which features 1,040,000 dots for high resolution playback. Switch to Live View mode to capture the best angle and to help compose your shot.

Intelligent viewfinder with 98% coverage

Enjoy a larger, more magnified field of view using the intelligent viewfinder which offers 98% coverage, relaxed viewing with a 22mm eyepoint and displays useful shooting information and an electronic level to help you capture the best shot.

Creative features designed for you

Preserve detail in both highlights and shadows with the EOS 70D’s high dynamic range (HDR) feature, and create composite images with its multiple-exposure facility. Enhance your stills with a range of Creative filters such as Toy camera effect or Miniature.

Experiment with the extensive EOS system

The EOS 70D is compatible with Canon’s full range of EF and EF-S lenses and EX-series Speedlites so you can progress your photographic skills with additional lenses and flashes.
