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

 #oink Farm life in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania ...That'll do, pig.
 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2
 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO http://photorec.tv/fb to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
