20.2 MP APS-C CMOS sensor
Designed and manufactured by Canon to work in combination with its own DIGIC image processors, Canon’s CMOS technology integrates advanced noise reduction circuitry at each pixel site, delivering virtually noise-free images.
The EOS 70D features a new 20.2 MP APS-C CMOS sensor that provides a balance of increased resolution and low noise performance. This enables the capture of the widest range of scenes and high-resolution prints, with low-noise images and a wide native ISO speed range of 100–12800 that is expandable to 25600. A high-speed 14-bit signal conversion combines with Canon’s DIGIC 5+ image processor for smooth tonal gradations and natural colours. An eight-channel read-out also supports high speed shooting of up to seven frames per second (fps) at full resolution.
The EOS 70D sensor has been manufactured using new materials in the colour filter, which enables the camera to achieve higher light transmittance. When combined with improved transistors inside the pixels, the EOS 70D is able to shoot at higher ISO speeds than previous models, whilst ensuring advanced image quality. The sensor also enables a world-first Canon technology, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which delivers fast, image sensor-based phase detection autofocus (AF) when using Live View, and smooth focus tracking when capturing Full HD movies.
Dual Pixel CMOS
Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology has been designed for two shooting situations – Movie recording and Live View shooting.
EOS Movies allows users to capture movies with a narrow depth of field, however a level of skill is required to do so with accurate focus. Dual Pixel CMOS AF has been developed to make it easy for new photographers to capture videos and easily control focus as the subject moves across the frame. With Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the management and control of focus in movie mode is quicker and smoother than ever before – perfect for shooting, ensuring there isn’t a drop in focus as the scene unfolds and subjects move around the frame.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF was also developed to improve the AF speed when users shoot in Live Mode. The new AF technology has been designed to allow photographers shooting with the high resolution Vari-Angle LCD to acquire quick autofocus, similar to the AF speed when shooting using the viewfinder.
All effective pixels on EOS 70D sensor’s surface consist of two individual photodiodes, creating a total of 40.3 million photodiodes. These photodiodes can be read separately to achieve phase-detection AF, or read together as imaging pixels – unlike other methods of sensor-based autofocus, which allocate either autofocus or imaging functions to pixels on the sensor, or rely solely on contrast detection.
With this innovative new sensor design, no additional imaging processing is required for pixels dedicated to AF, ensuring both quick acquisition of focus and maximum image quality during still and movie shooting. In addition, this new design enables the EOS 70D to operate Dual Pixel CMOS AF across 80 per cent of the frame (Dual Pixel CMOS AF is possible over 80 per cent of the width and height of the Live View frame).
To perform phase detection on the imaging plane, the EOS 70D reads the signals from the left and right photodiodes independently, before calculating the phase-difference of the two parallax images. This technique allows the EOS 70D to predict the position the lens is required to be in to achieve accurate focus, and then moves it to this position. By comparison, more traditional contrast AF methods seek out the correct focal position by moving the lens back and forth until the accurate AF is achieved, therefore slowing the overall AF speed and smoothness.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF is compatible with 103 EF lenses, spanning EF and EF-S, fixed focal length, wide-angle and telephoto lenses.
19-point all cross-type AF System
The EOS 70D incorporates a 19-point all cross-type AF system to provide swift and accurate autofocus acquisition across the entire frame – ideal when shooting fast-paced action.
All 19-points in the EOS 70D AF sensor are cross-type points with f/5.6 lenses, while the centre AF point is an extra sensitive diagonal cross-type at f/2.8 – providing more precise focus tracking.
The EOS 70D offers three different AF modes:
• Single point AF (manual selection): photographers are able to select any of the 19 AF points across the frame
• Zone AF (manual selection): the EOS 70D groups the AF points into one of five zones, allowing photographers to select an area and use the AF points within the zone to track the subject and achieve their desired composition
• 19-point AF (auto selection): when in One Shot AF, the subject that is closest to the camera is automatically selected to acquire focus. In AI Servo AF, photographers can choose the AF point to start the auto focus, and the EOS 70D will then track the subject using all 19-points within the frame.
Photographers are also able to select an AF point, or AF area, linked to the camera’s current orientation. For example, when shooting in a horizontal/landscape position, photographers can select a single AF point which can be active, and, when in the vertical/portrait position, an alternative area can be activated; allowing photographers to employ different focusing techniques depending on the subject and its movement. Users also have the freedom to fine-tune the AF’s tracking sensitivity, speed of AF acceleration and deceleration, and the priority of shutter release vs. focus, within the EOS 70D’s custom functions.
Lens microadjustment data for up to 40 lenses can be added to the camera, allowing users to select settings based on their preference or shooting style. When using zoom lenses, photographers can make adjustments for both the wide-angle and telephoto ends. For users with duplicate lenses, if required, different adjustments can be made for each lens and will be recognised by the EOS 70D based on the lens’ serial number.
The EOS 70D’s Intelligent Viewfinder provides photographers with approximately 98% coverage of the frame, approximately 0.95x magnification (approximately 27.9° angle of view) and approximately 22mm eyepoint.
Photographers can opt to display a wide range of current camera settings on the Intelligent Viewfinder, including: Single-point AF and Zone AF, AF points for 19-point automatic AF point selection, AF area selection mode, grid, spot metering circle, electronic level, and an alert symbol. An alert symbol is also shown when the EOS 70D is operating the B/W Picture Style, or white balance correction.
When shooting in low-light conditions, the current settings are displayed with a red illumination to enhance visibility.
The viewfinder also includes an electronic level which uses the AF point display to indicate horizontal tilt up to ±6° (±4° during vertical shooting) in 1° increments. During shooting, a simplified electronic level using a camera icon in the bottom section of the viewfinder displays if the camera is tilted.
7fps continuous shoot rate
The EOS 70D is capable of a maximum continuous shooting speed of approximately 7fps when high-speed continuous shooting is required, and approximately 3fps for lowspeed continuous shooting. The maximum burst during continuous shooting is approximately 65 shots for Large and Fine JPEG images and 16 shots for RAW images (UHS-I card required for maximum burst duration).
Silent Drive Mode
The EOS 70D features a new Silent Drive mode which operates the shutter and mirror at a lower speed than usual to decrease mechanical noise, ideal for situations where it is essential to keep disturbances and noise to a minimum.
The EOS 70D features integrated wireless connectivity, allowing photographers to shoot and transfer data to the following devices:
• Canon Wi-Fi-enabled cameras and printers
• Cloud-based storage and services (CANON iMAGE GATEWAY, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
• Smartphones and tablets using the freely-available EOS Remote Android and iOS application
• Direct to a DLNA-enabled HDTV
Using EOS Remote users can also control the EOS 70D over a wireless connection, changing camera settings and shooting modes, adjusting the focus on the Live View screen and releasing the shutter to capture the shot or set a movie to record. Photographers can also use EOS Remote to take the images shot on the EOS 70D, view them and post them to popular social networking sites and other cloud services, empowering enthusiasts to share their favourite shots immediately.

It’s the first Digital SLR in the world to feature ground-breaking Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, which delivers smooth and accurate autofocus (AF) when shooting Full HD movies and fast AF acquisition when shooting in Live View mode.
Paired with the 14-bit DIGIC 5+ processor and 19-point all cross-type AF System, the EOS 70D captures incredible, full resolution images at up to 7 frames per second, with up to 65 JPEG or 16 RAW images in a single burst[i]. Additionally, a native ISO range of ISO 100-12800 enables photographers to shoot in lower light conditions and use faster shutter speeds whilst retaining high image quality.
“I was incredibly impressed with how many new technologies the EOS 70D packs into one body, and how versatile it is,” said Brutus Östling, Canon Ambassador. “The EOS 70D is the perfect camera for anyone that wants to develop their photography skills. Not only is it suited to shooting people, landscapes and action easily and in outstanding quality, but also filming subjects in Full HD with focus speeds I never thought would be possible. The camera proved itself in the most challenging of circumstances, and had a range of new-generation technologies to comfortably solve any test I threw at it – especially with the new Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. It really takes DSLR shooting and filmmaking to a whole new level.”
Canon’s new Dual Pixel CMOS AF provides swift AF performance when shooting in Live View mode and smooth accurate focus for Full HD movies. It makes it easy for users to take their next step with movies, enabling them to keep moving subjects in sharp focus and create professional-looking pull-focus effects. The technology utilises advanced CMOS architecture, allowing two photodiodes to be mounted within each pixel, both of which can be read independently to achieve autofocus, or together for image capture, with maximum image quality at all times.
An advanced AF system for stills includes 19 cross-type AF points spread across the frame, providing high speed, accurate AF – ideal for tracking sports and wildlife subjects as they move within the frame. The AF system is customisable, allowing photographers to adapt to the subject they’re shooting. AF points can be used individually, together in small groups, or as a wide active area for more unpredictable subjects. A dedicated AF area selection button, positioned conveniently next to the shutter release, enables quick switching between modes, without having to take the camera away from the eye.
Expertly designed for professional control
The EOS 70D’s powerful specification is packed into an expertly-engineered body that’s designed for comfort and swift operation. The Intelligent Viewfinder, with 98 per cent frame coverage and 0.95x magnification, allows photographers to comfortably frame their images and visualise settings via the electronic overlay. Conveniently-placed controls provide instant access to the most frequently used settings, such as ISO, AF mode selection and metering, so users can quickly change settings and concentrate on capturing the moment.
A 7.7cm (3.0”) Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touch screen with a sharp 1,040k dot resolution is ideal for video shooting, or composing images from unusual and creative angles. The screen is a capacitive type, which supports a series of multi-touch gestures including swiping and pinch-zooming – perfect for navigating menus, amending settings or flicking through images.
Clever connectivity for easy control and instant sharing
The EOS 70D is the latest EOS model to feature integrated Wi-Fi, providing the freedom to remotely control the camera, as well as share images.

Photographers can also remotely use Live View mode, as well as review and rate their images.
Instant creativity unleashed
The EOS 70D features a host of creative modes to make capturing unique images easy. In-camera HDR removes the challenges of shooting in tricky, high contrast situations, merging three exposures into one that captures more detail in both the shadow and highlight areas. With multiple-exposure mode, photographers can shoot and combine up to nine exposures into a single image, or use a range of Creative Filters to instantly change the style and look of their shot.
Experimenting with creative off-camera flash is easy, thanks to the Integrated Speedlite transmitter, which provides in-camera control of multiple Canon Speedlite EX flash units.
Creative Full HD Movies
Alongside beautiful stills, the EOS 70D allows photographers to create high quality movies with ease. Full HD (1920 x 1080p) resolution video can be captured with a choice of selectable frame rates, including 30, 25 or 24fps, and 60 and 50fps at 720p, and a range of compression options for post-editing and sharing. Thanks to new
Dual Pixel CMOS AF, Movie Servo AF mode tracks subjects as they move, or even as shots are recomposed, ensuring they’re always in focus. Alternatively, users can select different focus areas over 80 per cent of the frame[ii] simply by tapping the touch-screen, even when recording – ensuring that movies stay sharp and clear if a subject moves or the user changes the composition of a shot.
Videographers can also enjoy stereo sound using the internal microphone, or enhance audio with the in-built external microphone input terminal. Full control over settings such as aperture and ISO is also possible within manual mode, giving users greater freedom as their skills develop.
