Kai from DigitalRev is back with another over-the-top camera review. This time he pits the Nikon D7200, Canon 7D Mark II and Canon 70D against each other with an ultimate test (… I use that term loosely) in AF performance by pitting three shooters against each other in a very unique photography challenge.
Canon has extended the DSLR and bundle rebates through April 26. Key deals include up to $250 off the Canon 70D, Rebel T5i or Rebel SL1. Check them all out here at B&H Photo.
Canon EOS 70D: From Snapshots to Great Shots is a new book from photographer Nicole Young.
“This book has one goal: to teach Canon EOS 70D owners how to make great shots using their camera. Starting with the top ten things you need to know about the 70D–charging your battery, setting your ISO, reviewing your photos, and more–professional photographer and author Nicole S. Young then carefully guides you through the modes of the camera, offering practical advice on choosing your settings, expert shooting tips, and end-of-chapter “challenges” to get you up and running with your 70D.”
Canon EOS 70D: From Snapshots to Great Shots retails for $24.99; however, it is currently available for $17.08 on Amazon.com.
