We have already discussed how the Canon 70D is a great all-round camera, but Canon’s claim of it being perfect for making videos is let down by the lack of a headphone jack. However, we should not let than one minor detail get in the way of what is considered a great DSLR.
If you have not purchased the Canon 70D because you were undecided if it was up to the task, then we have located three videos that could help in your decision-making? While two might only run for a few seconds each, they give you an idea of just what the 70D has to offer in terms of video features.
The first video tests the Movie Mode Face Detect and tracking mode of the Canon 70D on a 18-135mm STM lens. You will notice how it keeps track of the main subject, while background objects become out of focus.
In the second video we get to see the Touch to Focus Mode using the same 18-135mm STM lens. We have to say how quick the camera focuses between each subject, although we are a little worried about how you can hear it change focus on the video footage.
The final video is a little more in-depth because the Canon 70D video test runs for a little over 10 minutes. What we like best about this is the fact that Blunty is doing the review. He has decided to show us how well the 18-35mm f1.8 performs instead of a Canon branded one.
Looking at these three videos and after several other Canon 70D reviews, do you think this DSLR is the game changer we were promised?
