Canon EOS 70D Digital SLR Camera is packed full of all the latest technologies and boasts a new 20.2 million pixel APS-C size sensor. This combined with the new Digic 5+ processor gives one of the best possible combinations available for focus speed, frame rate and low level light capability. The EOS 70D D-SLR looks handles and feels like the EOS 60D but inside the new specification makes all the difference to enable you to capture that image in the worst of conditions. The High ISO and smooth noise is simply superb in low light and the new fast and accurate autofocus system for the Full HD video is a real bonus. High speed action shots are captured at 7 frames per second with a new 19 point AF system and WI-FI for easy downloading of images as well as control from your phone or tablet.
