If you are looking for a DSLR that can shoot amazing video with seamless AF, look no further than the Canon 70D! It will not disappoint.
The EOS 70D is Canon's latest addition to its midrange DSLR line, targeting "advanced amateur photographers and photo hobbyists". The camera retains an APS-C sensor and 1.62x crop factor like its stable mate 60D; resolution increases an insignificant 2 megapixels to 20. More importantly, the new camera features a Canon DIGIC 5+ image processor and the 3-inch articulating LCD monitor acquires touchscreen functionality. The native ISO range extends an additional stop on the high end from 100 to 12800 and is expandable to 25600. The autofocus system features a new dual pixel CMOS phase detection design that permits continuous AF during video capture, and incorporates 19 focus points instead of 9 on the earlier camera - with all 19 being cross focus, including a high-precision f/2.8 dual cross-type AF center point. Canon claims the new AF system "...realizes shorter focusing times, exceptional tracking performance and smoother autofocusing during video shooting". Full HD video is available and there is a built-in RAW image processing capability for still images.
