Canon 70D vs Canon 7D

Canon 70D features lot of improvement over 60D (see here). But Canon 7D users should wait for 8D or 7DMkII or buy Canon 70D camera?, let’s find out the answer below


Sensor, AF system and ISO
Canon 70D features newly developed 20.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor and improved ISO range.
Canon EOS 70D features a 20.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5+ processor, 70D offers native / standard ISO sensitivity of 100-12800, expandable upto 25600.
Canon 7D comes 18.0 Megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor, Dual DIGIC 4 image processor, 7D offers ISO 100-6400 (expandable to 12800).

Canon 70D and 7D features same AF system, Both camera features 19 point AF system, but due to dual pixel AF technology the Canon 70D does fast AF during live view and movie mode (Phase AF system active during live view).

Advance image processor in 70D: Canon 70D is using DIGIC 5+ image processor, 7D is using Dual Digic 4 image processor.

Top-continuous shooting speed: Canon 7D offers high speed shooting at 8fps @18Mp, Canon 70D offers 7fps @20.2 Mp.


Display: Canon 70D offers bright 3.0″ 1,040k-dot vari-angle Clear View II touchscreen LCD monitor, Canon 7D comes with 3″, 920,000-dot TFT LCD.

Other New Features

Built-In Wireless Connectivity: Canon 70D Wi-Fi provides remote control over the camera’s exposure settings (aperture, shutter speed, and ISO) as well as focus and the shutter release from an iOS or Android mobile device when using the Canon EOS Remote app.

Built-in HDR: Canon 70D features built in HDR, reducing the time needed to manually overlay images in post-production.

other new feature that 60D users will find in 70D is Multiple exposures, up to 9 exposures can be recorded onto a single file using 2 distinct settings for control.

Verdict: Canon 70D AF is same as 7D, but due phase AF pixels in the sensor the 70D will do fast AF when used in live view and movie mode, the sensor is new so you get 20.2 Mp resolution and ISO up-to 25600, other features include vari-angle touch display, WiFi and Built in HDR modes.

Professional shooters will may not see major improvements in the cores specification that they want, since the AF system, Continuous shooting speed remains same, Canon 7D still shooters should wait for upcoming Canon 8D or 7D MkII camera, If you are a Still+Video shooter you must upgrade you DSLR to 70D.

AMP - A True HDR Video Camera

True High Dynamic Range (HDR) video is here. Several years of research at Contrast Optical Design & Engineering have resulted in a working, commercially viable, HDR video system and the publication of a technical paper in the very prestigious SIGGRAPH 2011 conference.

What is HDRI ?
High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) is a technique that photographers can use to extend the range of light intensity, or dynamic range, that can be captured in a single photograph. The camera is placed on a tripod, and a series of photographs (typically three of them) are snapped in quick succession. Each photograph is taken using a different exposure setting on the camera, providing a dark, medium, and bright picture of the scene. These three images are then combined in software to produce a single HDRI photograph.

The Problem with HDRI
One key problem exists with the current state- of- the- art in HDR images: nothing in the scene can move. Since the photos are taken sequentially, any movement causes the combined HDR image to be blurry.

The AMP™ Camera Solution
Contrast Optical’s AMP camera technology solves this key problem by capturing truly simultaneous, pixel- forpixel identical images. AMP is the first camera to use commercially- viable technology to deliver real- time, high dynamic range, high- definition imaging.
Contrast’s in- house developed AMP camera technology uses specialized optics to split the light from a single camera lens onto three camera sensors simultaneously. Image- splitting is performed optically, at the speed of light, guaranteeing perfect motion registration between images. A new image- combining algorithm was developed specifically for this AMP camera system to transform the data from the three camera sensors into a true HDR video stream in real time. Contrast, being a custom optical design firm, approached the problem from a purely optical standpoint, avoiding electronic tricks such as alternating exposure frames (bright/dark) or double- mosaic pixel arrays (red/green/blue and light/medium/dark). Their background in high- end optical system design gave them a unique perspective from which to solve this problem, and the results look impressive.

A fun video that introduces the AMP Camera Technology and gives a sneak preview of the GEN II camera features. AMP captures three images with the exact same exposure time, at the exact same moment in time. A custom blending algorithm is used to combine the images to produce a true HDR image for each frame in the video. Of course, we can’t display true HDR images (yet) so tonemapping is left to the user. For this video, we chose a wide variety of commercially-available tonemappers, just to get the idea across that all the HDR data really is there for every frame. AMP is a trademark of Contrast Optical Design & Engineering, Inc.

Sensor-shift SR
The Optio S1 offers and advanced sensor-shift SR mechanism for sharp, blur-free images even when shooting telephoto shots, sunsets or indoor scenes in incident light. The camera compensates for camera shake up to approximately three shutter steps.
High-Sensitivity Digital SR*
The Optio S1 automatically raises the sensitivity as high as ISO 6400 for higher shutter speeds to minimize the adverse effects of camera shake and subject movement when shooting still images in low-light conditions.
* When the High-Sensitivity anti-shake mode is selected, the recorded size is fixed to 5M (2592 x 1944 pixels).
