Canon Middle East this week unveiled a new addition to its EOS series - the EOS 70D.

Designed for "aspiring enthusiast photographers", the EOS 70D is aimed at intermediate users who are anxious to improve upon their current results.

The camera combines new, "world-first" Canon imaging technology with creative and wireless sharing features - delivering "a responsive, all-purpose camera ideal for capturing the moment with stunning images and Full HD video", according to Canon.

The EOS 70D features a new 20.2 MP APS-C CMOS sensor, designed and manufactured by Canon. It's the first Digital SLR to feature Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, which is said to deliver smooth and accurate autofocus (AF) when shooting Full HD movies and fast AF acquisition when shooting in Live View mode.

Paired with the 14-bit DIGIC 5+ processor and 19-point all cross-type AF System, the EOS 70D is designed for the capture of sharp full-resolution images at up to 7 frames per second, with up to 65 JPEG or 16 RAW images in a single burst . Additionally, a native ISO range of ISO 100-12800 enables photographers to shoot in lower light conditions and use faster shutter speeds while retaining high image quality.

Canon's new Dual Pixel CMOS AF is aimed at providing swift AF performance when shooting in Live View mode and smooth accurate focus for Full HD movies. It is intended to help users take their next step with movies, enabling them to keep moving subjects in sharp focus and create professional-looking pull-focus effects. The technology utilises advanced CMOS architecture, allowing two photodiodes to be mounted within each pixel, both of which can be read independently to achieve autofocus, or together for image capture, with maximum image quality at all times.
