Every now and then a camera manufacture delivers one of those “wow” features that really moves a product line forward. The more and more I see from the Dual Pixel AF in the new Canon 70D, the more I am impressed.
These new video clips show just how smooth and accurate the Dual Pixel AF can be with moving subjects during video capture. Based on Canon’s recent history with video and live view AF on DSLRs and the EOS M, I really didn’t think Canon would be the one to nail it.
However, if everything that we’ve seen so far holds up in the final product, then the Canon 70D may be a very special camera indeed.
