Canon has officially announced the successor to the popular 60D Digital SLR camera. The Canon 70D DSLR was unveiled by the New York company early this morning with a “Dual Pixel CMOS AF system for instant and precise focusing of video as well as still images.” This new focusing system takes the previously mediocre video capabilities of the 60D to the next level with the “Dual Pixel CMOS AF” system. This technology allows the 70D to shoot video in near-camcorder quality thanks to “shorter focusing times, exceptional tracking performance and smoother autofocusing during video shooting.” Built-in WiFi connectivity allows photogs to easily share content and even control their camera via a mobile application. Further features include a new 20.2 megapixel APS-C Canon CMOS sensor, 3″ smudge-resistant vari-angle touch Screen clear view LCD monitor II, and high speed continuous shooting up to 7.0 fps.
The Canon 70D is now available for preorder (Body-only / Lens bundles) from Amazon starting at $1,199 with shipment expected in September. Amazon expects demand to outstrip supply. Orders will be fulfilled on a first-come first-serve basis. For those interested, the announcement of the 70D has pushed the 60D down to its lowest historical price of $599 (body only).
