Canon unveils new EOS 70D camera with dual pixel sensor

Canon today unveiled their newest camera, the EOS 70D. Perhaps the most exciting feature of this new camera is the sensor. Making use of the dual pixel technology allows much faster autofocusing when using live-view as in addition to the relatively slow contrast-detect AF, it can now also make use of the much faster phase-detect AF.

The rest of the specifications of the new Canon EOS 70D are pretty good too. Here are some of the key features:
  • 20.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5+
  • 19 point cross-type AF System and 7 fps shooting*
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF**
  • Instant sharing and remote control with Wi-Fi
  • ISO 12800 (H:25600)
  • Vari-angle 7.7cm ClearView II LCD touch screen
  • Intelligent viewfinder (98%coverage, 0.95 magnification)
  • Full-HD movies (30/25/24fps 1080p, 60/50/30/25/24fps 720p)
*UHS-I card required for maximum burst duration
**Dual Pixel CMOS AF is possible over 80 per cent of the width and height of the Live View frame
