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 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens is a relatively light telephoto zoom offering a broad range of focal lengths from a single optic, with good optical quality and excellent autofocus performance from its USM motor. It has a circular aperture diaphragm to help create natural out-of-focus highlights, and its built-in image stabilizer allows you to handhold the lens at shutter speeds 3 steps slower than would otherwise be possible, making it very practical for capturing still subjects in quite low light. The stabilizer can be activated to only correct shake in the vertical axis for panning action when desired as well.
The lens' AF is very quick, and it features a zoom lock button that keeps the lens safe and secure when not in use or when being used at the shortest 70mm focal length setting. The EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 has Canon's "Super Spectra" lens coatings for ideal flare-resistance, and is ideal for travel, sports, and general photographic applications.
