Sensor Review
Introduction | Canon EOS 70D sensor performance | Canon EOS 70D vs 60D sensors: Incremental advance | Canon EOS 70D versus Nikon D7100 versus Sony SLT Alpha 77: not as competitive as it could be! | Conclusion

Alongside the $799 (body only) Canon EOS 60D with its conventional 18-MPix APS-C CMOS sensor, the EOS 70D shows some very slight improvement in Color Depth but no increase in Dynamic range, which is somewhat discouraging. A very small improvement in Low-Light capabilities was measured but in real world terms this isn’t likely to be noticeable.
