Canon 70D Leaks Out; Features 20MP, 7fps and New Dual Pixel AF System

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. [Read more...]

Canon 70D Due in July?

Canon 70D Rumors

The latest rumors suggest that we could see the Canon 70D officially announced and replacing the 2.5 year old 60D in July 2013.

The 70D is supposedly in the final stages of testing and units are in the hands of some of Canon’s Explorers of Light. Additionally, Canon is rumored to be in the process of shooting commercials and ad campaigns for the 70D at various locations.

If you see one in the wild, send some photos our way.

Previously rumored specs point to an 18MP sensor and more robust build than the 60D. [Read more...]

Canon 7D Mark II Not Coming in 2013?

Canon 7D Mark II

The latest in a long line of rumors concerning the Canon 7D Mark II puts the camera’s delivery beyond this calendar year and into 2014. That would put the original Canon 7D (it was announced in Sept. 2009) well past the 4-year mark if/when the 7D Mark II is announced in 2014. Much longer and we’ll need to start looking into kindergarten programs for the 7D…

Additionally, the Canon 70D is supposedly the only other Canon DSLR that is going to arrive this year; however, there are rumors from “good sources” that put several new lenses coming in 2013. Could the EF 28-300mm and EF 100-400mm lenses be among those new offerings?
