The EOS 70D features the newly-developed Dual Pixel CMOS AF system and working in tandem with an initiative vari-angle3.0-inch wide Clear View LCD IItouchscreen monitor. The Clear View II LCD has an anti-reflection coating to provide visibility even in bright sunlight.

The DIGIC 5+ image processor’s rapid processing speed takes an approximate 7.0 frames per second (fps) at full resolution.The EOS 70D sustains this rate of continuous shooting for up to 40 images in a single burst*.

The EOS 70D also features a high-precision 19-point all cross-type AF sensor which is able to accurately track subjects even if they move unpredictably. The AF points are placed throughout a wide area.

You can control the EOS 70D remotely via the EOS Remote app on the smartphone, whereby the smartphone’s screen becomes an extension of the camera’s Live View screen. Users can not only trigger the camera to take a shot, but also select different settings such as aperture, shutter speed and ISO and adjust focus all via their smartphones.

In this digital era where sharing images and videos on the internet has become a norm,EOS 70D’s built-in Wi-Fi capability connects the camera directly to the internet via a wireless network, and upload images and videos via the Canon Image Gateway** onto social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. This same Wi-Fi capability also allows it to print photos from a PictBridge-enabled (DPS over IP) wireless printer or playback its images on a network-enabled TV (DLNA devices).

Optional Battery Grip

For heavy duty users, Canon has developed the optional BG-E14 battery grip for high-volume shooting and easier vertical grip. The BG-E14, when outfitted with two battery packs, allows the EOS 70D to take twice as many shots as when using the camera alone.
