Announcement of the Canon EOS 70D

Posted on 03.07.13 in the category Hardware

Announcement of the Canon EOS 70D Canon has announced the upcoming release of the Canon EOS 70D, upgrade its high-end DSLR to the general public. Three years after the 60D, it loads the latest innovations from Canon already on the latest autofocus and a "double-pixel" promising to improve the video experience.

New AF system optimized for video

Canon EOS 70D introduces a new "Dual AF CMOS Pixel" sensor, APS-C and covering 20 Mpixels but with 40 million photodiodes. Each microlens to the surface of the sensor is thus associated with two photodiodes which are used to make a focus by the phase detection of substantially all of the sensor.

method would meet the pump effect in the video focus when the focus detection by the phase could not be continuous. Canon promises "a precise and reactive fluid autofocus," video as covered by the screen with this new device.

During the optical sight, however, the CMOS sensor is obscured and a dedicated autofocus sensor takes over, with 19-point cross (ie detecting the details on both the vertical and horizontal axis).

Touchscreen and Wi-Fi

Associated chip processing DIGIC 5 + already present on professional SLR, the 20 megapixel photo sensor at a rate up to 7 frames per second and shoots in Full HD 1080p at 24, 25 or 30 frames / s or 720p at 50 or 60 frames / s. Sensitivity runs natively from 100 to 12,800 ISO, and can be pushed to 25,600 ISO.

articulated 3-inch screen is multitouch as the 700D, the dial mode and the arrangement of the main buttons also from this case. The device also features Wi-Fi as all future Canon models for the transfer and takeover distance.

Canon camera EOS 70D will be launched towards the end of August in France at a suggested retail price of € 1,100 naked € 1,250 with the EF-S 18-55 mm f / 3.5 -5.6 IS STM or € 1,450 with EF-S 18-135 mm f / 3,5-5,6 IS STM and is placed in direct competition with the Nikon D7100 sold naked around € 1,150.

Confirmation of Canon EOS 700D and 100D

Posted on 22.03.12 in the category Hardware

Confirmation of Canon EOS 700D and 100D Canon has confirmed the rumors yesterday by announcing the upcoming availability of the Canon EOS 100D Canon EOS 700D and for which recent rumors on the web. A new format SLR innovative ultra compact and an update of Canon's consumer DSLR.

Canon EOS 100D is the barely bigger than a bridge size as the Canon PowerShot SX50. Modernizing the design of certain components of the traditional SLR sake of compactness normally reserved for compact and mobile, Canon has been able to combine a sensor and an optical viewfinder SLR in a housing 25% smaller than EOS 650D.

Canon EOS 100D

Specifications that have leaked Best Buy are thus confirmed and therefore we find a variant of the 18 megapixel CMOS sensor for improved focus. The phase detection sensors now cover 80% of the sensor surface. It works on a range sensitivity from 100 to 12,800 and even 25,600 ISO in expanded mode, up to 4 i photograph / s and films in Full HD at 25 frames / s mono. The 3-inch screen with a million pixels capacitive touchscreen is still adjustable but for the sake of compactness.

Canon EOS 700D

Canon EOS 700D is the when him a slight update of public housing including 650D brings a new coating of the case which could pose problems of aging on the 650D, a new rotary control knob, and is now supplied as standard with the objectives of the STM range that offer better performance focus in video mode. Given the enrichment of the Canon range, it is probably difficult to provide a cheap and efficient housing to compete (like the Nikon D7100) without cannibalizing other brands like its big brother 60D/70D.

Canon EOS EOS 700D

Canon EOS 700D on will be available with the new Canon EF-S 18-55 mm f / 3,5-5,6 IS STM France end of April for a suggested retail price of 900 euros.
