With an all-new 24.2Mpix APS CMOS sensor, a 45-point all cross-type viewfinder for stills, and a Dual Pixel CMOS AF system for live view or when recording video, the Canon EOS 80D is the latest model in the maker’s double-digit series. Read on to find out how well the sensor in the Canon EOS 80D performs.
Aimed at enthusiasts, Canon’s latest iteration of the mirrorless M-series contains the new 24.2-Mpix APS-CMOS sensor and Hybrid CMOS AF III 49-point AF system found on the EOS 760D (Rebel T6s) and 750D (T6i). There’s also an articulated touchscreen LCD and built-in Wi-Fi with NFC, but it’s still not officially available in North America. Read on to find out how well this new model’s sensor performs.
Announced alongside the slightly better-equipped EOS 760D (Rebel T6s in the US), the 750D shares many of its sibling’s features, including a new 24.2-Mpix CMOS sensor and hybrid AF system, but it is aimed at beginners and has a price tag to match. Read on to find out how well this new model’s sensor performs.
Announced alongside the slightly more accessibly-priced EOS 750D (Rebel T6i in the US), the 760D shares many of its sibling’s features, including a new 24.2-Mpix CMOS sensor, hybrid AF system, improved metering and built Wi-Fi, yet has improved controls aimed at enthusiasts. Read on to find out how well this new model’s sensor performs.
Besides being the first Nikon to feature a touchscreen LCD, the mid-range DX format Nikon D5500 is a mostly unremarkable update to the D3300, but as with that model, the performance of the 24-Mpix CMOS sensor really stands out. Read on to find out how well it performs.
Designed specifically for use on smaller APS-C sensor DSLRs, the new EF-S 24mm is a wide-angle pancake prime featuring Canon’s STM step autofocus motor for smooth video capture. At just $149, it looks like a “no-brainer” for Canon APS-C video shooters, but how does it compare optically against a vast range of other options available? We dissect the DxOMark Lens Metric Scores to find out.
Canon has expanded its lineup of entry-level DSLRs, adding two new higher-resolution models to its range. The Canon EOS 750D and EOS 760D are both built around a new 24.2Mp APS-C sensor and offer the same set of features in slightly different shells, with one camera body designed with the more experienced photographer in mind. Let's take a closer look at how the two models differ.
Canon has introduced an accessibly priced stabilized ultra wide-angle zoom complete with a stepper motor that should appeal to stills photographers and budding movie-makers alike. Read on to see how well this new model performs.
Canon APS-Cshooters will be pleased to see the announcement of the Canon 7D Mark II as their new flagship APS-C DSLR. Whilst the original version pushed many boundaries when launched, 5 years on it’s now looking pretty long in the tooth. So how will the updated 20.2Mp Mark II version compare in today’s dramatically different camera world? Lets find out.
With the 2014 World Cup in Brazil approaching, this is the time manufacturers with serious interests in professional sports start revealing new cameras and lenses to selected press agencies. Both Canon and Nikon are rumored to be fielding prototype professional-level APS-C bodies during the tournament for testing. However, rival Sony appears to have stolen a march by introducing the SLT Alpha 77 II ahead of the games.
Does 70D gives same results in high speed cont. shooting for indoor lighting I noticed clear difference in lighting when a group taken .. the difference is clear in first and last usually, like a shutter was closing or opening when image recorded!
Do you publish the gain transfer curves for cameras someplace on your website. I have just completed some curves for ISO 100 through 3200 on my Canon 70d and I am looking for something to compare them against and the same for the Rebel XSi.
I have a 40D, very old camera, apparently with a score about 700 points for the low light capabilities, and yet, 70D with about 3.5, maybe 4 stops better in low light has 926, only around 200 points over 40D, a little more than 30% in ISO performance. How is that possible? Another comparison is between its main competitor, Nikon D7100, Canon 70D being a tad better, and yet, the score doesn't relate to the reality. OK, Nikon has better DR, but I'm only talking about noise in the images.
Thanks for your question. The first thing to say would be that the main improvement maybe explained by the raw convertion. So if you compare RGB picture made by the final canon ISP versus the RGB picture made by the 6 years old canon ISP available on the 40D there will be more than 2 or 3 stops of difference… But if you are only checking RAW measurement, differences are not so huge. Here is the comparison Canon EOS 40D vs Canon EOS 70D vs Nikon D7100: http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare-Camera-Sensors/Compare-cameras-side-by-side/%28appareil1%29/895|0/%28brand%29/Canon/%28appareil2%29/865|0/%28brand2%29/Nikon/%28appareil3%29/180|0/%28brand3%29/Canon The difference is more close to 1/3 of Stop : the sensor of the D7100 is close to 1/3 Stop better than the 70D sensor which is around 1/3 of a stop better.
The selling point of the Canon 70D is its impressive auto-focus and great video recording capabilities. I just wish they put a headphone jack on it. http://topcamerareviews.hubpages.com/hub/CanonEOS70DCameraReview
The comparison is available here : http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Cameras/Compare-Camera-Sensors/Compare-cameras-side-by-side/%28appareil1%29/895|0/%28brand%29/Canon/%28appareil2%29/692|0/%28brand2%29/Canon/%28appareil3%29/619|0/%28brand3%29/Canon The lowlight scores are very close from 792 to 926. As this is a logarithmic scale, the difference is even closer than it looks like. In fact it represents a difference of less than 1/3 Stop.
The 70D will pave way for the next generation SLR cameras as far as video-recording is concerned. I know a lot of photographers who will also enjoy this impressive new feature. Already got mine at http://hub.me/afLAa.
Hi, I am EOS 70D user for about two weeks. I really appreciate such sophisticated method of camera testing. Well, as real life camera user I am very sattisfied with the EOS 70D image quality. I used 60D and 7D recently and I must say, the image quality of EOS 70D is at least one level above. Feel free to check my full resolution sample gallery: http://gallery.sulasula.com/Equipment/CANON-EOS-70D-FULL/ with pictures ISO 320 - 2500.
I really don't know. I never had courage use such high ISO in any of my crop cameras. :) I hardly use ISO over 4000 on my main FF body EOS 6D. High ISO performance of 70D is more than just slightly beating 7D by my opinion.
The Nikon 3200 is rated as having a clearly better sensor via dxomark, but in the T5i/700D reviews elsewhere (imaging-resource), the D3200 is clearly inferior (the reviewer even said so)...d3200 blurs the test image, likely to hide noise. Something isn't right.
In dpreview.com's comparometer tool, the D3200 similarly blurs the images to hide noise.
Using the 70D I have obtained my sharpest bird photo. But I'm not happy. 1) Canon has lied in saying one can AF while in LV - it actually exits LV in order to AF then re-enters LV. THAT IS CLUMSY AND SLOW, CAUSING MISSED OPPORTUNITY 2) The 70D is not compatible with the 3rd party speedlite I was using with my 5D Mk II
If you are thinking of waiting for the 7D Mk II you had best take any 3rd party gear you use with the 7D (or other canons) and make sure it works.
Just a few days ago I saw Canon 70D's performance in a polish website (http://www.optyczne.pl/).Canon has done no improvement in the field of still photography in these years.I recently tested some test shots in http://www.imaging-resource.com/ ,through which I felt at ISO3200 Canon 60D perform well than Canon 70D,specially at the noise point of view. So I think Canon delivered the message that "BUY FULL FRAME".
OR, for many folks ... Buy a 4/3 camera system! ... especially with advantages like a stabilized 200-600mm equiv. at just over 1 pound and $500-600, sweet on a great Panasonic GH3 body, I bet. The Pana GH3 and simpler but in-body IS Olympus OM-D E-M5 get about the same still image quality as a 7D, and the GH3 does much better video if you're serious and/or pro.
Add a full frame for if/when you want more and don't care about the gear being far heavier/pricier, etc.
