70D Dual Pixel Focus Demo.  Is the 70D as good as a camcorder at focusing and keeping moving objects in focus?  Remember that camcorders, with their much smaller sensors, produce video with large depth of field and this makes it much easier to keep objects in focus.  The 70D which a large sensor and lenses with wide maximum apertures can produce razor thin depth of field -it looks lovely in video and photos but makes focusing a bit more challenging.  I have been seriously impressed with how well the 70D has done, with lenses as wide as f/1.2, the 85mm f/1.2 L. I have also been impressed with the absence of that focus hunt.  In previous DSLR cameras there is always this 1/2 to full second where the camera grabs focus, goes just beyond and then back to focus.  the 70D in all but the dimmest conditions locks onto focus on the first try.    Here is a good light demo of the 70D in action.

Second video is a complete side by side tour of the 70D and 60D – discussing the differences and similarities. In general these two cameras look and feel very similar in the hand with the 70D having a few styling and function differences that move it just slightly more towards the pro end of Canon. The video below is long, 16+ minutes and if you only want to see the product tour you can skip to 8:00 where I start the product tour of the 70D

 #bison #snowface ~  Captured with the #Sony #a7rII and Canon 100-400 and heavily cropped because I follow the #YellowstonePledge :)
 In Yellowstone National Park the roads are paved with snow and go straight for miles. Yesterday was sweet, today was the sweetest! Captured here on our way to Hayden Valley - a #dreamyplace like no other. #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 24-105 lens
 Yesterday ended as epically as it began (see my earlier post?) As we made our way out of the park the setting sun lit up this line of trees and steam from geothermal activity - a single line of animal tracks lead the way to this scene. #iloveyellowstonenp #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 70-200 ️‍️ EXIF: Exactly the same as the morning shot posted earlier.
