Canon 70D

The Canon 70D has made its first unofficially official appearance in the form of a leaked advertisement acquired by Canon Rumors. The camera will feature a new 20.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 5+ processor.

Additionally, built-in WiFi will likely work the same as recent iterations in the Canon 6D (i.e., easy and usable). Notably, the 70D will feature a new Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, which should be 5x faster than previous-generation live view and movie mode AF. That’ll be a huge win for Canon if true, since Canon’s DSLRs have, to date, sucked in the live view AF department.
