Sony A77 II vs Canon 70D

Sony-A77-II-vs-Canon-70D-im

Sony A77 II vs Canon 70D, Sony A77 II is recently announced professional APS-C camera and Canon 70D is a approx 1 year old semi-professional APS-C camera from Canon, take a look at the specification comparison below.

Sony-A77-II-vs-70D-image

Sony A77 II has more  resolution + more ISO range compared to Canon 70D. But the more ISO range is not so useful as we can clearly see in the High ISO Test the Canon 70D showing more details.

AF System:
Both System features HYBRID AF system but the Hybrid AF system in both the camera implemented in a different way.

The Sony uses SLT technology, in SLT technology uses fixed translucent  mirror above the sensor and approx 20 – 30% of light transferred to the AF sensor and rest of the light goes to image sensor, the fixed mirror-technology compromises with image quality but gives you very fast AF and continuous shooting speed.

The Canon 70D uses Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, the Canon 70D sensor integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of phase-detection gathering elements to help reduce focusing time required by traditional contrast based system camera.

Canon 70D AF points are less than Sony A77 II, and the other most important part is continuous shooting speed, Sony A77 II is can shoot 12 frames per second at a bit higher resolution , Canon 70D is limited to 7 fps only.

Video: Sony A77 II can shoot full HD videos @ 60fps on the other hand Canon Full HD mode is limited to 30fps only.

Display: 3.0″ 1,040k-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen, you can also shoot your subject just by tapping on the screen, Sony A77 II comes with 3.0″ 1,228k-Dot 3-Way Tilting LCD Screen (no touch control available in A77 II).

NFC in A77 II: Sony A77 II is bit more social camera compared to Canon 70D since it comes with built in NFC, so you can syn. any of your smart device to shoot form a distance.

I have added one pic only to show the image quality difference, the Sony A77 II image is down-sampled to match with Canon 70D.

Canon-70D-vs-A77-II-image

Canon 70D showing natural colors with more details compared to Sony A77 II, why Sony A77 II is showing bit more reddish hue in the image ?

Verdict: For sports shooter and Videographers we highly recommend you to buy Sony A77 II, if you are a still shooter we recommend go with Canon 70D.

Fujifilm X-T1 vs Canon 70D

Canon-70D-vs-Fujifilm-X-T1-

Fujifilm X-T1 vs Canon 70D, Fujifilm X-T1 is a high-end mirrorless camera and Canon 70D is a high-end DSLR camera, take a look at the comparison below

Fujifilm-X-T1-vs-70D-image

Sensor
Fujifilm X-T1 features X-trans AF sensor with dedicated phase AF points in it + due to bespoke pixel array design the X-T1 doesn’t need low-pass filter.
Canon 70D have Dual-pixel AF sensor with dedicated Phase AF points with the sensor, but sensor architecture is traditional and it does need low-pass filter.

AF system:
Both camera supports Hybrid AF system, Canon 70D is limited to 19 AF point only, Fujifilm X-T1 AF area is divided into a 49-point matrix and covers more screen area compared to Canon 70D.
Digital Split Image technology in X-T1 it make a bridge between Manual focus and Autofocus method, through the implementation of four striped focusing aids; similar to a rangefinder focusing method, once all the four strips are lined, it means focus is acquired and you can press the shutter button.

ISO
We have noticed few things that will surely have impact on low-light perofrmance
Fujifilm X-T1 have bit bigger sensor size compared to Canon 70D.
Fujifilm X-T1 have less megapixel count + bigger sensor, that clearly means the X-T1 photodiodes are larger than Canon 70D. The larger   photodiodes collect more incoming light to sensor.
Finally, more expandable ISO range on specification sheet, (25600 vs 51200)
The Fujifilm X-T1 will perform better in low-light situation compared to 70D.

Video:
Fujifilm X-T1 can capture Full HD videos @ 60fps frame rate on the other hand Canon 70D is limited to 30fps frame rate.

Display:
The Canon have better display system compared to Fujifilm X-T1, with Canon you get ability to touch and shoot your subject and swivel LCD helps you to compose your shot effortlessly.

Both camera features Built-in wireless connectivity

Verdict: We highly recommend you to buy Fujifilm X-T1, since it comes with better sensor , no optical low pass filter and advance AF system.

From the dpereview test  we can see that Canon 70D is showing clear images with more color and contrast compared to Nikon D5200 and D7100 DSLR, I my view Canon 70D is the best APS-C DSLR available in the market today based on specification and image quality.

Canon 70D vs Canon 60D - High ISO Test

Canon 70D first HIGH ISO test images surfaced over the web, But I have to say that I didn’t notice any significant improvement in the new 70D DSLR low light performance.

Canon-70D-vs-60D-ISO-Test-I

From the High ISO test we can see that Canon 70D using strong noise filter compared to 60D,  images of Canon 70D have less details + less noise  compared to 60D at ISO 3200 and 6400 , at 12800 both are almost same.

Canon latest Dual-pixel AF technology help 70D to do fast AF during live-view and video mode, but the ISO performance remains almost same, do you will buy new 70D or you are happy with your 60D DSLR?. If you have some time take a look at Canon 70D vs Canon 60D comparison review.

Canon 70D - How Dual Pixel AF Work

The Big problem in front of Canon was the slow contrast based AF system in DSLRs (When used in live-view / video mode), Canon started tweaking sensor from 650D, The 650D is first Canon DSLR with distributed Phase AF pixels within the sensor,  after that 700D and 100D (both) based on same technology. But the Canon 70D is a complete breakthrough, 70D have two photodiodes distributed to each microlens. As a result, two parallax images are captured at once. With Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the amount of lens drive is calculated from the amount of signal difference (amount of shift) in the AF points. When the signals of two photodiode are in agreement the Focus is achieved.
