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.

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.


Canon’s newly-developed Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a phase-detection autofocus (AF) technology on the camera’s image sensor plane, enables users to shoot video with the new EOS 70D close to the quality of a video shot with a camcorder. Dual Pixel CMOS AF employs a revolutionary CMOS sensor on which all of the effective pixels are able to perform both still imaging and phase-detection AF simultaneously to achieve dramatically improved AF performance over other EOS cameras during Live View shooting and when shooting video.

Compared with Canon’s conventional Live View AF systems, Dual Pixel CMOS AF realizes shorter focusing times, exceptional tracking performance and smoother autofocusing during video shooting. And, because Live View shooting can be used in a manner similar to using the camera’s viewfinder, the fast and smooth AF performance allows users to concentrate more attention on the subject and composing the photo when shooting. Dual Pixel CMOS AF also supports 103 models of EF lenses (including many earlier models), enhancing a photographer’s creative options as well as maximizing the benefit of Dual Pixel CMOS AF in a variety of situations.

Canon 70D vs Sony A77


Sony A77 vs Canon 70D (DSLR vs SLT), take a look at the major specification comparison review of both the camera and share your thoughts with us.


In the case of the DSLR, the mirror reflects light up into the viewfinder and then, once the shutter button is pressed, it lifts out of the way to allow the photograph to be taken, hence the ‘reflex’.

In the case of the SLT, however, the mirror is translucent, so it allows light to travel directly through it for the picture, with only a small amount being reflected for use in the camera’s autofocus system, thus eliminating the need for internal movement of the mirror.

Features Comparison

Sensor, ISO
Sony A77 features bit bigger sensor with more megapixels, but due to SLT technology only 70 to 80% of light is transmitted to sensor, a small portion is used by AF system, In Canon 70D there is no such issue, the mirror flip-up after AF is done and the camera sensor get 100% of incoming light.

There is no HIGH-ISO test images available yet, but we are sure Canon 70D will perform better even if the have same ISO range.


Auto-Focus System
With Sony SLT you get Full-time Phase AF while you are shooting video or shooting still images, Canon 70D features newly developed sensor with Dual-pixel AF system, hence the AF is 5 time faster than conventional contrast detect system in live-view and video mode.


Continuous Shooting Mode
Sony A77 features 12fps of continuous shooting mode, Canon 70D is limited to 7fps only, So the Sony A77 is approx 2X faster.


Both Camera features Full-Time AF during video recording, Sony A77 offers 60fps of frame rate @ Full HD video recording, Canon 70D limited to 30fps only.

Canon STM lenses support for 70D, Canon STM lenses / lenses with step-drive motor for silent AF specially designed for video recording.

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.


Display:  Canon 70D offers bright 3.0″ 1,040k-dot vari-angle Clear View II touchscreen LCD monitor, Sony Alpha comes with Sony’s 3.0 inch Xtra Fine LCD monitor with 921K dots.

Both camera features built-in HDR and Multiple exposures modes.

Verdict : Canon 70D features advance core specification, we highly recommend you to buy Canon 70D DSLR, Sony A77 is recommended for sports shooter (if they need 12 fps continuous shooting speed and more megapixel)
