  • 18 MP sensor, similar to the one in Rebel T5i
  • All-cross type 19-points AF system
  • 6 - 7 fps burst rate
  • ISO 100 - 25600 expanded
  • Powered by the DIGIC 6 processor
  • 1080p HD video capture
  • Capacity touch screen, similar to the Rebel T5i and SL-1
  • Creative filters with Live Preview
  • Some WiFi capability, similar to EOS-6D

Full frame sensor? 18mm = 18mm?

Hi Dan. The EOS-70D will be another cropped frame, APS-C camera. If you are interested in a Canon full frame camera, I recommend the EOS-5D Mk III.

Thanks Michael. That would be great, but I don't have $3k to spend on a camera body. APS-C will be fine.
