|Canon Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology on the EOS-70D camera|
Canon launched their EOS-70D camera in August 2013 and received rave reviews, especially on the ground breaking feature, known as the Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. Earlier this week, Canon announced this new technology will be available on the EOS Cinema C100 and C300 cameras as a Firmware upgrade.
As usual, Canon is releasing their newest technology on their lower level cameras, only to migrate to more expensive models at a later time. Case in point would be the DIGIC 6 processor and STM lenses, all came out on lower end gear first.
With the success of Dual Pixel technology, it may be a matter of time before the EOS-5D Mk III gets the upgrade or the Mk IV model will come standard with it. The highly anticipated EOS-7D Mk II camera and a less expensive version of the EOS-1D C will most likely come with this new technology as well. MichaelDanielHo.com
