Canon Launched EOS 70D

Canon has launched EOS 70D. It is an upgraded version of 60D and it offers something that many amateur videographers have been hankering for — autofocus on a DSLR that actually works while recording video. Usually, if you're shooting video on a DSLR, manual focus was the only way to achieve pleasing results. However, the 70D has what Canon calls 'Dual Pixel CMOS AF'. While it has the usual 19 autofocus points, the main improvement in focus speed will be seen in Live View mode and while shooting video. The camera should be available in September 2013.
