Canon has had a significant influence upon the film-making crowd. Via its technologically sophisticated cameras it has won over millions of fans worldwide. Picture perfection, mobility and reasonable prices combine to pack a powerful punch. The next in line after the EOS 60D is obviously the all-new EOS 70D. This is a medium-range DSLR camera. This is for video-making and it has auto focus capabilities. The video camera works absolutely marvelously. It may be a small change over the former yet it is a source of relief as well. The launch date is set for September 2013.
Among the salient features may be included: Wi-Fi and NFC Sharing. It even has a touch-sensitive three-inch liquid crystal display unit. As for the mega-pixel count, it is a bit more than the older version. On the APS-C Sensor it registers at 20.2MP. And this is a considerably high amount. It is a fine upgraded camera indeed.
The chief feature though is the “Dual Pixel CMOS Focusing System”. Ordinary auto-focusing is built around a system that suddenly jumps in and focuses once. Then it focuses a second time for an even better image. And that is it. While this may be more than enough for photographers, it leaves much to be desired in case of video-making. That is why film-making has always lacked proper autofocus facility. This has been the bane of many film directors. The image stuttering that occurs had led to film makers abandoning autofocus facilities.
Canon's new EOS 70D ought to solve that once and for all. And so it was to occur when the novel camera was tested. The autofocus took place smoothly and without any unnatural breaks. For the first time in history, without the use of a focus ring a series of scenes can be shot in their transitory life-like state of flow. How beautiful can it get? This camera will be available in markets for $1200. But that is at least two months away.
It has a DIGIC 5+ Processor. There is also a Scene Intelligent Auto Mode. What Canon has done is basically re-created the concept of video-focus with its fast and furious manual camera. While the past models merely gave off some glitter, this one definitely shines like the sun!
