Title: The Canon EOS 70D is Hitting Stores
Post by: Canon Rumors on August 21, 2013, 09:07:29 AM
From Australia
The first country to our knowledge to get the new EOS 70D is Australia. A few have started to trickle in to retailers around the country. For the moment it appears only kits have made their way to retailers.

*UPDATE* Bodies are arriving at retailers as we speak.

Indeed, and the box on top is body only, while the one on the bottom is a kit.

 :D I have to say the price is pretty good at JB $1499 for the kit but body only is not showing there I will still be waiting a while before I make a final decision and purchase as I am off travelling using my 500d. Christmas specials I hope will make this even better.

any thoughts on an updated firmware release for this camera in the coming weeks/months to add additional features?  was on the phone with a Canon tech for an unrelated issue and seemed to be hinting that could be happening at some point in the future - obviously wouldn't elaborate at all, unfortunately...

Hi,
    Saw it on the store yesterday night and play with it.

    The normal AF is faster compare to 60D and the live view AF work really well and fast. High ISO performance basically same as 60D.

     By the way, I notice that the 70D user manual indicate that there are 2 version: 70D (W) and 70D (N). 70D (N) do not have WIFI... certain country cannot use WIFI??

    Have a nice day.

You guessed right. Most countries agree to standards for radio communications and as long as the manufacturer can prove that they meet the standard, they are allowed to sell the product. That means one set of certification tests covers almost all countries.

Some countries have their own standards and some have restrictions on what equipment is allowed to broadcast.... For those places the only real solution is to remove wireless functionality. It can be as simple as leaving out a component, such as a wireless transponder, and a slightly different firmware with those functions removed from the menu.

all of you who already own a 70D. can you honestly comment on its even smaller back wheel/dial than the one on 60D? an honest opinion.

because when i first saw the pictures and comparison, i thought to myself that no way can this be nice if your fingers arent those of a child. and then i heard it on a review stating the same "problem".

I just got mine this afternoon (August 22nd) at Aden Camera in Downtown Toronto (Yonge and Dundas) for $1150 (body only). They had a lot of 70Ds with the 18-55mm kit, a few 18-135mm kits, and some bodies. Waiting for the battery to fully charge to play with it :-)

Dude come on is it charged yet or what? Let's see some sample images already!

I'm really interested in the image quality from the camera - the samples on dpreview, particularly at higher ISO, don't seem much better than the budget cameras.

also owners of the 70D, test its AF track capabilities through VF on moving subjects (preferably sports), if it can compare to 7D.

Hi all-

Melbourne, Australia: 70D everywhere in stores now.  Will be interested to find out how the dual pixel AF works at macro distances and in low light.  Might have to have a play with one once the initial havoc dies down, for the sake of curiosity...  Still waiting for that 7D ii however.

So the G16 has 1080P 60 FPS but the 70D only has 720p 60??  Are you kidding me?  I don't get Canon marketing at all.  No slow mo on the $6k c100, 720p 60FPS on the $15k c300 and 720p/60FPS on the $1.2k 70D but 1080p/60FPS on the $600 G16?  Wow.

Just to let you folks know 70D live view PDAF is not compatible with 3rd party lenses. Camera falls back on contrast based AF when lens is not supported.

I pre-ordered July 2nd, and Amazon was quoting an 8/26 release, and now they are showing out of stock on the body, the 18-55 and 18-135.

I was in the same boat as you.  this afternoon I canceled my order with amazon and ordered from abt.com, they are a BIG local appliance and electronics store north of chicago and are awsome.  I know for a fact that they still have three body onlys in stock as of right now.

I pre-ordered mine on July 4th so I called Amazon today to check status.  She told me the first batch shipped out today and they are now sold out.  They are awaiting more inventory from Canon.  She said her internal system was giving her an estimated date of August 29th - 30th for my camera to be delivered.

The waiting is the hardest part.

I dont know for sure but if i had to guess I would say the 29th-30th would be a pipe dream but i could be wrong.  please let me know if I am!  hope for you it shows up on the 29th

I pre-order the 10-18mm f4 E Sony lens for my Nex the first day it was available for pre-order from Amazon and they had not send it a month after release.  In the end I canceled and bought it from another dealer.  It started out as next shipment expected in 2 days then one week then two weeks then Unknown.  Lesson Learned NEVER pre-order from Amazon.  That said I get 90% of my camera gear from Amazon. 

My Nex 6 ordered a week after because they had a system glitch preventing pre-orders was only 2 weeks late. 

Hope you have better luck.

Then again this is a much bigger problem with Sony than Canon.  They are practically chronically over ordered on initial release.

I pre-ordered mine on July 4th so I called Amazon today to check status.  She told me the first batch shipped out today and they are now sold out.  They are awaiting more inventory from Canon.  She said her internal system was giving her an estimated date of August 29th - 30th for my camera to be delivered.

The waiting is the hardest part.

I just got an email saying it would arrive the 29th.

Hard to believe they sold out of the first batch already, and I wasn't included... considering I pre-ordered really early. Strange.... but they just charged my card as well so I'm thinking the 2nd batch is shipping out tomorrow/Wednesday.

Has anyone who ordered from the US Amazon store had theirs shipped yet?

I pre-ordered July 2nd, and Amazon was quoting an 8/26 release, and now they are showing out of stock on the body, the 18-55 and 18-135.

Wondering if they didn't get any stock allocation from Canon?

I was in the same boat as you.  this afternoon I canceled my order with amazon and ordered from abt.com, they are a BIG local appliance and electronics store north of chicago and are awsome.  I know for a fact that they still have three body onlys in stock as of right now.

Interesting. I was thinking about canceling but they just gave me an arrival date of 8/29. They also charge my card so I believe it'll be here soon.

I tried to buy one in an shop in my neighbourcountry Austria today. CPS store. 1099€.
They got  just a few dozen of them. One will be reservated for me :-) and I will fetch it tomorrow.


Got the info, that only CPS stores get them @ this date. Others have to wait longer.
Amazon Germany wrote today, that the delivery date at the end of October will be possible, because of the small amount of Cams they get and the huge count of preorders.....

BTW: cheap way to hold an higher price: Deliver the item to be sold only piece by piece....

Lots of pictures of boxes but no actual 70D images!

Update - I went to a local camera store during my lunch break to play about with the 70D. The LV AF is amazingly fast, you just touch the screen to focus and it's instant and accurate. The ergonomics are similar to the 7D but everything is smaller. It's like a mini 7D in a way. Feels solid and the grip is similar to the 7D too, glad they got rid of the 60D grip, yuk!

Only played about with it for a few minutes but it seems like a well rounded solidly built little APS-C with very good, sharp images with good color rendition.
