Canon U.S.A. Inc., a producer of digital-imaging solutions, introduced the EOS 70D Digital SLR camera, which features a new Dual Pixel CMOS AF system for instant and precise focusing of video as well as still images.
The EOS 70D is also equipped with a 20.2 megapixel APS-C Canon CMOS sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 5+ Image Processor, according to the company. In addition, the EOS 70D is outfitted with Canon’s newly-developed Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a phase-detection autofocus technology on the camera’s image sensor plane, enables users to shoot video that is close to the quality of video shot with a camcorder, the company said.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF employs a revolutionary CMOS sensor on which all of the effective pixels are able to perform both still imaging and phase-detection AF simultaneously to achieve dramatically improved AF performance over other EOS cameras, according to Canon.
The EOS 70D Digital SLR camera is capable of producing sharp, detailed images, in low-light conditions, and of high-speed continuous shooting of up to 7.0 fps united with a 19-point all cross-type AF system (including a high-precision f/2.8 dual cross-type AF center point), Canon said. That enables photographers to easily capture accurately focused fast-moving subjects, while the camera’s “Scene Intelligent Auto Mode” delivers optimized photos and offers scene detection even when shooting in low light, the company said.
The EOS 70D also incorporates a 63-zone Dual Layer Intelligent Focus, Color & Luminance AE metering system that enhances accurate exposures by minimizing random metering errors caused by varying subject colors and light sources, according to Canon. Other useful features include a built-in electronic level function, manual settings and AF micro adjustment, the company said.
The EOS 70D Digital SLR camera is “a game-changing DSLR model that incorporates advanced features for high-quality still and video capture and intuitive operation that allows photographers to evolve their creative vision from shooting still images to shooting moving images,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, Canon U.S.A.’s executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications.
