Canon has today unveiled their latest DSLR camera, the Canon EOS 70D with a new Dual Pixel CMOS focus that is said to autofocus 5 times faster than previous models in the EOS range.

Alongside that, the 70D will also feature a 20.2 meegapixel AAPS-C sensor, DIGIC 5+ processor, 19-point autofocus system, and a maximum ISO of 12,800.

The camera can also shoot at 7 FPS, with up to 65 JPEGs or 16 RAW images from a single burst.

In terms of video, the 70D can also shoot in Full HD with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, that can capture in either 30, 25 or 24 fps. This can be further increased when shooting in 720p to 60 and 50fps.

Canon also say there’s a new AF system that will allow the camera to better track subjects within the shot, tracking as they move. There’s also an internal mic alongside a port for using an external one instead.

The camera also includes Wi-Fi connectivity, a 3 inch Vari-Angle touchscreen LCD, support for HDR and a Multiple Exposure Mode.

The Canon EOS 70D will be available from late August for £1,079.99 body only, or from £1,199.99 with one of the kit lens packs that can either include the EF-S 18-55 IS STM or the EF-S 18-135 IS STM lens.
