EOS 70D Next to Be Announced
« on: June 27, 2013, 11:27:55 AM »

Canon EOS 70D

As expected the next DSLR from Canon will be the EOS 70D. No specs of the camera have leaked out yet, but the last we heard it would utilize the 18mp sensor currently in the Rebel SL1. The specs have leaked.


The camera will come kitted with either the EF-S 18-55 IS STM or the EF-S 18-135 IS STM. The battery grip will be called the BG-E14

Not really revolutionary then. Wondering how long it takes for real new sensors.

Wonder how much more canon an get from the SL1 sensor.   The sensor is only 1 part of the camera, but it is a key (a d often limiting part of the light gathering system).  Will we see improvement in low light / high ISO ability?   Higher FPS? 

Could be canon's way to keep the 7d and 70d well separated inorder to charge more for the 7D

hmmm

Evidently they are sticking with the plan to roll out the new sensor with the 7D mkII.

The 70D will have the touchscreen stuff, of course.  What else? -- with the same old 18 mp I guess I really don't care...    Why wait so long to roll this out if it is the same-O same-O all over again?

The sensor graded out worse than every other APS-C Canon is currently selling at DxO. While it's just one measure, they are just focusing on the sensor itself, so, there better be some damn impressive processing ability in the camera to shine up that turd.

Did the SL1 have the exact same 18mp sensor?

Yeah, I'm honestly wondering what Canon is thinking sticking with the same sensor. I can get a 60D for <$600 right now, so, for a camera that will retail at nearly double that ($1099 or $1199 for the body), it'll need to have massively better build quality, frame rate, AF, etc for it to sell. And then the 7DII will have to be a whole step above that.

Not sure they're gonna have much luck with that strategy

Again, just going of DxOMark, it's got the same performance as the 50D, and is slightly worse than the 60D sensor.

Good for you!  8) Even better for Canon. You still bought a Canon and even a more expensive camera ;)

To those saying it's the same sensor, what are we considering a 'new sensor'?  I believe one of our in-house experts outlined the differences at one point (CR's search isn't the greatest).

Honestly, does the 70D really need to be anything other than a 7D with an articulating screen and DIGIC V to sell?

The only dire news I'm expecting is a less than modest price bump :/

This rumor doesn't excite me. I'd like an APS-C for reach and second body, but I'm in no hurry. My next DSLR will have to have IQ at least on par, preferably better than, my 5DIII. So maybe the 7DII will deliver. I hope Canon takes the time to get it right.

Probably not, but, that requires them putting in 19pt AF and 8fps, plus build quality. Those are all pretty significant improvements over the current model.
