If you're shooting a wedding out of your camera bag, more power to ya! 

I didn't mean to say the flip screen wasn't useful (personally I'm in favor of them), just that in that one instance there are other options.

No worries, PancakeMan -- I was just having a bit of fun. As is probably obvious by now, I don't shoot weddings! :)

And here comes the 70D into play. It offers (should offer) a step up from the entry level xxxD. LCD on top for easier handling, more robust body, better IQ (again hopefully after the 60 dissapointment), and some other nice features I like to see (like WiFi or GPS). And all that at a nice price.

Yes, I do care about the 70D a lot.

Personally, I think you're expecting a lot from a (Canon) camera that needs to be slotted in price-wise between the 700D and the 6D, whilst still being inferior to the (rumoured) 7D2.
Happily ignoring the laws of physics and the rules of photography to create better pictures.

They should really just merge the 70D and 7DII, but I know that won't happen. The 60D became just a super Rebel. The XXD series deserves to be a lot more like in the past.

I would place the 7D Mark 2 higher (Body pro with verticalgrip like a 1DX, but APS-C) and the 70D a little bit over the 60D (like the 50D was)... with magnesiumbody but smaller body than a 7DM2.

I just bought the 60D kit for my kid to use for a few $ refurbished at BH. For the money it produces indeed very good IQ in my opinion. Unless Canon decides to change their pricing strategy with the 70D, I would claim the 60D to be about the best offer in the Canon line up as of know.

If you look at what Nikon has done with the d7100, I don't that's asking very much at all. They've managed to put their "pro" AF, weather sealing, and sensor without an AA filter into a camera for $1200 and I don't see why canon can't. Now obviously we're not going to be getting the 61pt AF system seeing as that is reserved, if you will, for the 7d ii, but if canon wants to be taken seriously in the APS-C market, the 70d is going to need to be a very capable camera.

it's definitely time to merge the 70D and 7D II

too many products with such little differences.

Naw... the 7d II will be for the have's, and the 70D will be for the have-nots.... just kidding, but really, canon will make the 7d2 quite nice, the king of the apc line, the way it was intended to be, worthy of it's xd title... whereas, the 70d likely will be crippled in some way/shape/form.  I could see maybe the 70D get the 7d's AF module and the 7D get the 5d3 and 1dx AF module...  or something near that...  so the 70D would be good, but not THAT good.  Personally, my 7d is old and needs to be retired, but i'm waiting to see what the 70D or 7d2 brings...  Call me crazy, but that camera to me would be purely my backup or my assistants camera, and one thing I have my assistants do a lot of is behind the scenes video of our sets and such... plus provides a unique perspective for clients presentations when they view their images... I want the headphone output jack...  sound is always a stuggle and one time my external mic was "on" but wasn't "on"... more like in a sleep mode... so when we thought we were getting good audio, we got good silent footage.  And during weddings, that would be crucial to monitor it.  If the 70D has that, i'm buying it. 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

FF has three levels of bodies, so does APS-C

The 1DX is a class by itself.
The 5D's and 7D's are for the advanced shooters...
The 6D's and the 60D's are for the mid-range shooters...
The Rebels are for the introductory shooters...

Seems to me like they have a reasonable lineup

I am eagerly awaiting the release of the 70D as my 500D is becoming iffy some shots just seem to disappear and the finance officer (hubby) has suggested I should have a new camera this will be my last chance to move to a better camera as we are both recent retirees. Does Canon do a world wide release or is there a trickle down effect I am in Australia and hope that the release is pretty much world wide. The next trip away is mid August and I would love to have the camera by then, if not I will just have to be patient.

When the release a new camera, it is usually available everywhere at the same time. There will be a week or so variation between various suppliers, but normally it's fairly close together.

Very informative group. :) My question here, other than from what I have seen the release of the 70D is in September and not this month, is whether it is all that much better that I would want to upgrade from the 60D? I was reading up at http://www.squidoo.com/canon-70d-camera-price-and-review and the only wow factor seems to be the autofocusing technology. If I am understanding correctly, the 70D is finally catching up with camcorders.

Is there anything other than this that should make me consider upgrading? Thanks in advance...

Cheers,

Nicholas

"I was reading up at." Yeah right. You only have one post here. It seems you came justs to plug in your squidoo link, which has been taken down anyway. Don't spam.
