While its competitor, Nikon's D7100, excels at perfectly focused stills, the Canon EOS 70D brings DSLR-quality autofocusing into video capture, putting an end to the focal spasms that can ruin SLR video clips. Of course, it's a fantastic traditional shooter, too, with a 20.2-megapixel sensor and a seven-frame-per-second rate of fire, but the EOS 70D should be the go-to camera for the growing ranks of DSLR filmmakers.
