Canon Announced the Canon EOS 70D, promising that the DSLR will offer “instant and precise” focusing in both still images and video thanks to the Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus feature and phase-detection AF. Canon also says the camera can shoot video near the quality of a camcorder, in 1080p HD at 30 FPS.

The EOS 70D features a 20.2 megapixel APS-C Canon CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 5+ Image Processor and an ISO range of 100-12800, with the ability to snap sharp images even in low light. It can handle SD/SDHC/SDXC and Ultra High Speed cards.

There’s also a stereo microphone with manual audio level adjustment that features an attenuator to prevent clipping, and Canon’s Stepping Motor lenses are designed to reduce noise such that the mic doesn’t pick it up.

The touch-enabled Clear View LCD monitor II LCD is 3 inches, and users can apply seven different Creative Filters in Live View and rely on features such as High Dynamic Range, Multiple Exposure, Handheld Night Scene, and more.

I am so jonesing for this, though I would probably be baffled at the complexity of its controls.

Me too, but I'm willing to try,.......

It's not hard. Just hit the button to take the picture. It will focus when you do that....
