The 70D is capable of providing excellent image quality with its 20.2MP CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 5+ image processor. It also has the power to record up to 7 fps at full resolution and full HD 1080p video recording. The major advance is the dual-pixel CMOS autofocus during video capture and live view. Combined with the 3.0" vari-angle touchscreen LCD monitor, you can easily set focus, adjust settings, and review images. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi allows for remote control over the camera and for wirelessly transferring images to your computer.
Included with the camera is the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens, providing a 29-88mm zoom range equivalent in 35mm format. This lens is designed specifically for APS-C cameras and provides image stabilization and an STM stepping motor for use during video recording. This works perfectly in conjunction with the 70D's 19-point autofocus system.
The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Telephoto Zoom Lens is a long-reaching zoom lens that provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 88-400mm, covering portrait-length to telephoto perspectives to suit working with distant subject matter. Greatly benefitting this lens' reach is the incorporation of image stabilization, which works to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 3.5 shutter speed steps to support handheld use in low-light conditions.
An STM stepping focus motor is also integrated into the lens' design to provide smooth, quiet, and fast focusing performance that is ideally-suited to video applications as well as tracking moving subjects. The rear focusing system, high-speed CPU, and an enhanced AF algorithm also contribute to quickened overall AF speeds. Full-time manual focus is also supported to permit fine-tuning of focus even while working in AF modes. Additionally, the front lens section does not rotate during focusing to better facilitate the use of polarizing filters.
The optical construction of the lens employs one ultra-low dispersion glass element to help reduce chromatic aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range while also enhancing contrast and clarity. Optimized lens coatings have also been applied to ensure color fidelity by countering the effects of lens flare and ghosting.
