10 Things to Maybe Expect from a Canon 70D

By Matthew Bamberg / May 8, 2013

Canon 70D

Coming in June is the Canon 70D, which is to cost about $1200, a bit pricier than the XSi and similar cameras.

These cameras are adding so many non-photography features that they’re sounding more and more like hand-held devices, with many of the same features, but instead of being options on a small smart phone, they’re added to a bulky dSLR camera.

 Here’s what you can expect from a Camera 70D (all based on rumors from American websites):

1. 21 or 24 MP sensor
2. APS-C sensor
3. WiFi
4. GPS
5. Weathersealed

Information is scarce on this camera, even though some early announcements were made that the camera will make it to market before June. These were rumored but never happened. June is next month and still nothing has been released.

The Italian website PAUSCaffe reports the following specs:

6.  that the sensor will be only 18 MP.
7. a burst speed of 6.5 frames/second
8. 3.2-inch LCD display
9. touch screen display
10. DIGIC 6 processor
