Canon EOS 70D Coming in July? [CR2]
« on: May 21, 2013, 02:37:00 PM »

Marketing for the new camera now under way

We’re told that the EOS 70D is in final testing and in the hands of some ‘Explorers of Light’. Canon is currently in the middle of production on a few commercials for the 70D that have been shot at various spots around the globe.


It currently looks like July is when we’ll see the replacement to the 60D finally get announced.

Hmm. Announcing a product in July would be a first for Canon, no?

But if the 70D is indeed announced in July, then it's quite unlikely
that the 7DII will be announced in August/September.

So, it looks like the 7DII will be a 2014 camera, after all.

Well, let's hope that the 70D specs will be exciting.
Fingers crossed for a new sensor (and for removing the articulating LCD  :-*).

well if it really has the same old 18 MP sensor i would stick with a 60D a bit longer.

let´s hope it is not such a pisspoor update as we have seen in the rebel line.

I'm both excited and disappointed. I've waited a long time for 70D announcement, so that's exciting. However, if mass-production issues for the new sensor are what's holding up the 7DII, then it's likely that the 70D will have the same sensor as the SL1 and T5i, so that's kind of disappointing.

Maybe I'll just be really optimistic and hope that not only does the 70D have the new sensor tech, but that the 7DII will therefore also be announced some time this year. Of course, frustration arises out of unmet expectations. I should probably keep my expectations low...

My bet would be that, had new sensor production gone as planned, the 70D would have the new tech (and have been released quite a while ago), but that since it didn't, and they have to release something, they'll do the best they can with all non-sensor improvements and send it out to market.

I'm expecting:

  • Metal body (or mostly metal)
  • Improved weather sealing
  • AFMA
  • Slightly improved AF system
  • 12,800 ISO (expandable to 25,600)
  • A few more creative filters

They might also throw in WiFi and/or GPS, depending on how much they feel they need to compensate for the incremental sensor upgrade.

We'll see...

PS: I really like the swivel screen. First used it on my ever-faithful A80 and currently enjoy it on my G12. Both screens function and articulate as the day they were new (despite some hard use). Knock on wood.  :) I can't imagine not having it, especially since many of the photos I take are from low(er) positions...

That'll never happen.

Has anyone done any testing on the SL1 sensor to give an idea of what might be in store for the 70D? It seems odd that you can buy one at B&H but no one has done an in-depth review.

I would say this one almost matches the longing for 7D2. Everyone is hoping for an upgrade of the 60D as soon as possible. On top of the wish-list is a new sensor (duh). But the real question is body design. Will it be a 60D type or a 7D type of body? Articulating screen or not? Focused on video or stills? Metal body or plastic?

Some things I expect:
Larger body than the Rebels.
Better build quality (even if plastic)
Shoulder display
Joystick (one thing I don't like about 6D)
Touch screen (regardless of if fixed or swivel)
AFMA returns (hopefully wide-tele)
Wifi+GPS (Canon's second EOS to include this)
Built in flash (for remote control? Maybe not if wifi)
Surface design as 100D (carbon fibre look)

And I hope for a 7D type of body again.

well, when i look at the DXO score of the recent canon APS-C sensors... then i would say the SL1 sensor is worse then the 650D sensor. im just interpolating from a trend.

in a best case scenario there will be a modest improvement.. but nothing worth mentioning.
im willing to bet my 7D on that.....  ;)

If it has a sensor in it, I'm switching to Nikon!

Oh snap, F1 beat me to it.

If this is accurate, I don't know why there would be a need for  much "final testing" if the 70D is to have the same sensor as the 60D.

I'm also not sure why everyone assumes that the 70D and 7D II will share the same sensor if the 70D gets a sensor upgrade. Canon has three sensors in three full-frame bodies. It's very possible we could see a new 22-24 mp sensor in the 70D and then an 19-22 mp sensor in the 7D II.

Bleh. I'm sure the 70D will be a cool camera for the advanced soccer moms, but how about releasing some stuff that people are actually waiting for?

The rumor didn't say the same sensor, just Olog-hai there preemptively complaining.

Yes, we can get complete expert reviews based on a rumor with no details.
 
It's sad that Canon is so predictable.  The reviews are probably right-on.

well we are not all braindead fantasy freaks who believe in miracles... gaffer gamgee.

my last 5 predictions were dead on.. i would be glad to be wrong this time... but i doubt it.

the first APS-C camera from canon to have a new sensor design will be the 7D MK2.

According to this comparison, SL1 IQ doesn't seem exciting at all, which I expect to be the IQ of 70D. 
If Canon is listening, who cares if iso is expandable to a gazillion, I just want super-clean at iso 3200.  Really.
