The new Canon 70D came in to our Rental Departments recently, and we could not help but to test out the new AF system! We put the camera through a quick but difficult scenario, and the camera performed surprisingly well! The tight shots may have a bit of rolling shutter issues, but this is inherent in DSLR’s and could also be easily fixed in post.
Ultimately we do not want to sit on one side of the fence or the other, but this camera is impressive and definitely worth taking a look at, especially if you are an ENG style camera owner/operator.
If you are in the Cleveland, Cincinnati, or Chicago areas stop by a Dodd Camera to take one for a test drive today!
