Reviews / First look review of the Canon 70D
« on: October 09, 2013, 08:43:52 AM »
I have recently completed a "first look" review video of the Canon 70D (W).


Hope you enjoy it.

Hi all, I have been recording video with my 70D, and have noticed significant audio static in the background of footage. It sounds like a constant "hiss". I am using the built-in camera mic. I have never experienced this with my 60D which I also used considerably for video recording as well.

Is anyone experiencing the same problem with their 70D?


I have just upgraded from the 60D to 70D and loving the new video capabilities! The touchscreen is amazing! I think this is going to open up some serious video production options for amateur enthusiasts. I got it with the 18-55mm STM lens kit. My first impression was that I had bought a junky lens - simply because of how light it was to hold. But after using it a little, I am very happy with the quality of the images - and the speed of focussing while using continuous auto-focussing.

I mush admit though - if I was not in to using my DSLR for video, I would not think the upgrade was worth it - as the 60D was an excellent camera.

I made a youtube video of the unboxing showing some closeups of the camera body (and a little bit of using the touchscreen).

What memory card do you recommend for the new Canon 70D? Just wondering if I need to upgrade from a San Disk 30GB Class 10 (45MB/sec).

Lighting / Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT - I'm impressed!

I've been using my new Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT flash on my 60D, with impressive results. It's my first Speedlite flash that I've actually owned, and I'm very happy with it. I'm particularly impressed with it's power when I am zoomed in to 200mm. Not only am I getting nice soft bounce lighting indoors, but it's pretty good outdoors at night too.

I've done a brief review if you're interested ...

Can't wait till I can get my hands on another Radio Triggered Speedlite so I can try out some cool effects.
