Canon 70D Photos and Specs Spotted in Leaked Advertisement


Canon will soon be announcing a 70D to replace the 60D in its mid-level lineup, and we have a pretty darn good idea of what that camera will be like. An advertisement for the camera has leaked onto the web, revealing just a couple of photos but a whole list of specs and features.

Obtained and published by Canon Rumors (there’s a higher-res version there), the photo shows the type of ad flyer that you might find next to the camera’s display at an electronics store:


The sheet reveals most of the critical points about the camera. The 70D will be a 20.2-megapixel APS-C sensor camera with a DIGIC 5+ image processor.

Canon Rumors writes that the camera may feature a new 19-point (all cross type) Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus system that reportedly works 5 times faster than previous EOS DSLRs when shooting in Live View. ISO will go up to a max of 12,800.


Other specs include 7fps continuous shooting, built-in Wi-Fi for wireless connectivity, a 3-inch swiveling touchscreen LCD, Full HD video recording, and HDR mode.

The formal announcement for the camera is set for July 2nd, 2013.

    What?!?! Canon finally has a new APS-C sensor?!?!? Better late than never right? :P

  • CDNChaoZ

    Seriously, watch out for flying porcines, people!

    I think I just saw something blue hit the ground. Looks up to the sky…..

    Hey, that should be on all their advertisements! Between the embarrassingly-late EOS-M and a new APS-C sensor, I can totally see it adorning all their posters!

    “Canon – Better late than never”

    I’m just glad they’re finally retiring that worn out 18mp sensor. Hopefully this new one is good.

  • Lukas

    No GPS?

  • Karen G.

    “No GPS?”. No GPS!

  • Norshan Nusi

    New sensor!

    O_O 7FPS? Dude……7D backup camera…

  • Le Hoang

    yay ! no GPS !

  • derek

    T_T i want a 720312 mp sensor! we are in 2013 not in 1800

  • criss

    Is the new Sony sensor that you find in Sony a58. It’s a good sensor!

  • A.J.

    What was wrong with the 18MP sensor?

  • Mantis

    Based on the comments here, this site should rename itself PixelPeeper.

    Noise. Lack of dynamic range. AA filter. I could go on, but it was outclassed years ago.

  • Alejandro

    That’s just the 70D.

    7D Mark II:
    Dual Digic 5+
    14 fps
    Dual CF Cards
    No swivel screen, but the LCD is touchscreen.

    1DX APS-C version O-o

    Hahaha :3 just a little bit more…

  • Tyler

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m fairly certain Canon always has and always will make their own sensors. I really doubt they’ll start using Sony’s stuff now.

  • bmassao

    Nikon uses Sony’s sensor, Canon uses their own stuff.

  • zeptom

    Isn’t the name 1000000000 MP already good enough. :)

  • Meh

    Typical canon leaving out a few too many features to make this exciting. They will no doubt start losing entry level and enthusiast sales, which feeds into there pro stuff. This will have to be cheaper than the D7100 as it looks like the autofocus will be inferior with far less points, and although the pixel numbers are insignificantly different in real life, first timers buying rarely know that and may choose the 24mpix aps-c nikons? May end up being like the 6D vs D600 or 5dmk3 vs d800, all the canons are great cameras, but Nikon has just been a little more exciting compared to canon still playing it safe. Not enough difference for canon users to switch, but new buyers? (note i am not a nikon user, I have an OM-D, if i went back to pro shooting i would rent either canon or nikon happily)

    I’m sure many of the comments here are from people that didn’t have the good sense to buy Canon. Canon didn’t come to dominate the market by making poor products. They did it by making quality products.

    I bought a 60d 6 days ago and I really hope the 70d has high ISO speeds like 6400 with decent noise performance
