Did this video help you?

randomrazr: torn between a nikon d610 or a canon 70D

Mitchell Moss: they still only resolve about 1/3rd of the 20 megapixels thanks to bayer interpolation

darkcashyz: 70D does have an on-screen audio monitor feature even when shooting.

fadi zain: YOU'RE SOOOOOOOO BORING 

Phương Lan Camera - Hạ Long: Hello everyone 

Ben Gomes Photography: u seem to like to overexpose ur video lol

MuahMan: A77 with 100-400G II = 12 fps with focus of 24.3 megapixel goodness. But I hit buffer after 19 shots, then delay.

Daniel Martin: Would love to see the Pentax K-3 in this review, Great job btw!

Lee Ding: real life comparison plz

Nicholas Buenk: Interesting. Could you perhaps do a video on 5D Mark III with a 2x Extender verses a 7D? I am interested to see the image quality of full frame + Extender verses the image quality of a crop camera. I'm estimating it should be about the same seeing as you lose full frames nose advantage due to the 2 stops lower aperture and you also lose full frames sharpness advantage, but it would be nice to see it tested.

Greg R: nice video! I was surprised to be still watching it 35min later especially with that shirt/hat combo :P and yeah, I actually bought a used 7D yesterday on eBay, for $750. should work well with the 300/4L IS, but I might start looking at even longer lenses. too bad that past 400mm the price goes through the roof.

Pierre Augustin: Blablabla and zzzzzzz... --"

Yogesh Sarkar: Excellent video review and comparison of #Canon 70D, 7D and 5D Mark III for Wildlife and Sports #Photography

Rene Stanneveld: Must be me but my 70d has nice db meters while i make video. Can even adjust them.

chucky greeny: If your an dedicated wildlife/sports/birding I recommend an used 1d mark 4 over the 3 other cameras or even an 1dx for bird shooters cause AF is faster, 10 fps, 1.3x crop AND iso performance as good as 1ds iii/5d ii. I know it usually costs around 3000$ usd but if your lucky you can find a few around 1550$ (kijiji) :-)

christopher cowan: The 7D can now run some of the magic lantern features. The 70D at this time doesn't. I know this is about wildlife photography but on a side note for video 5D mark III on magic lantern and WOW!

Robert Curtis: Would love to see you do a wildlife shoot and comparison with the canon 1dx

Orwell 1984 OhWell 2014: This video is incredible, thank you. At around 17:40 don't you think the 7D is showing better image quality? Look at the difference in detail and color in the threads on the bear. And just before then, when comparing the 5D Mark III, if you zoomed in further so the Bear's eye is the same size, would the quality of the 70D have still looked better?

Dennis Morgan: Great video! Didn't think I'd watch it all but it was very interesting and thorough. New subscriber.

Scott Anderson: Wow, I was looking for your Canon 70D Camera Review (vs 7D, 5D Mark III, 5D Mark II): Video Recording video and ended up on this. I have basically zero interest in wildlife photography, but your video was so well done, so detailed, and your personality is great (reminds me of a digital photographer version of Bob Ross. Do you take photos of happy little trees?) that I ended up watching the entire 41 minute video. I think I've probably watched 3 videos on youtube over 30 minutes in my life. Well done sir. You have yourself another subscriber.

Cade Perry: perfect video cheers

tietanus: i've watched this for forty minutes and i'm not even into camera's 

Joel Bastian: 70D focusing for video is better than any auto focusing DSLR right now.. cuz of the introduction of the dual pixel AF sensor. and the touch to focus is awesome.. its like your own follow focus system without the extra $$$. too bad they couldn't introduce it on the 5D mark III .. now all DSLRS useres are expecting to have it on every DSLR that comes out.

Keegan Jay O'Neill: pros never use autofocus for video

Zoran Zivanovic: The cheap SD & the expensive SD got the same amount or shots because they were both the same class of SD (Speed) Class 10.

rodrigo morales: 70D is not a replacement for 7D.... 70d is replacing 60D and Canon will announce a 7D Mark II for 2014.

Peter FitzSnuggly: Just viewed this vid - Great Advice - I have the 7D & 400- 5.6 & they are great. You can also get a 1DII for a bit less than a 7D used which gives great results but only 8mps. Still good enough for A3 in need + you can add a 1.4TC (taking the lens to f8) & the 1DII body will still auto focus. Note 1DII is a 1.3 crop.

frank wong: 7D are all F5.6 crossed , 5D3 most are F4 crossed . does it really affect for performance while focus using those point with lens where F5.6 or slower ? F4 tele lens are quite expensive LOL~ 

InfinityNERDS: I found the camera, thought it was your arm for half the video.

Guy Appino: Cranking out a 40min video isn't easy and requires hours upon hours of work! Deepest appreciation for all the time, effort, and straightforward feedback in a clear and articulate manner regarding the evaluation of these 3 cameras and stringing it all together. It goes a long way into helping me make a educated informed decision! Thank you.

Keith Baty: Great video, help me out a lot.

Fake Produser: yes very good thanks good teacher straight to the point

Pablo Verbel: What do you think about the Nikon d800? 36 mp and has crop mode. 

Joao Vital: The autofocusing system only works with a STM Lens?

KELLY COOKE: TONY GREAT VIDEO. I THINK YOU HAVE HELPED ME MAKE UP MY MIND. I'M ONE OF THE FEW THAT DOES NOT USE POST PROCESSING, SO I DON'T THING THE 5D MARK III WOULD BE MY FIRST OPTION. THINK I'M GONNA UPGRADE FROM MY 50D TO THE 70D. I DID BUY A NICE PIECE OF GLASS LAST YEAR, 70-200 2.8. THIS ALLOWS ME TO GET MORE DETAIL WITH THE PUPPIES WHEN THEY ARE PLAYING. AGAIN YOUR VIDEO WAS AMAZING.

kevinhazard1: Hey Tony.. Great review / vid.... I have the 7d and love it... Tailor made for my big hands.. I hear you when you say about focusing etc... And when you talk of never having a big enough lens for wildlife..lol.... Keep up the great vids... :-}}}} Link to a couple of my images taken with 7d and sigma 150 - 500 lens... http://www.flickr.com/photos/jwkevin/9253258723/lightbox/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/jwkevin/9308965497/lightbox/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/jwkevin/9187839210/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/jwkevin/9271539246/lightbox/

sowhatprod: Your info are very good. ! ! ! You speak slow with confidence so it is easy to understand and hear your words. It is understandable and clearly presented. The only negative thing is perhaps that the film is a little bit to long. But U present it in a nice and interesting way, so I guess most people don´t care. So thumb´s up for your video !! 

ooDriveoo: lol, I have to admit I was a bit frustrated to see the face of the speaker so long at the beginning (I wanted to see more camera action demonstrations), but there is something about his articulation and body language that makes the video bearable. Interesting views, Here are a couple of remarks about the 70D: 1- Contrary to what you said in the video (27:20), you can actually display the audio level bars when you set the audio audio level adjust feature to manual. I believe it should be possible to display it as well in auto audio level but I would have to check. 2- I have found that the best way to do hand-held video, while taking advantage of the tap-focus through the touchscreen (without feeling like you have motor-skill issues), is to hold with your left hand the flipped-out touchscreen. In this way, you can focus with your left-hand thumb while holding the lens with the right hand (extra possibility of manual zoom). 

Josh Dokulil: Tony...was hoping you could give me your suggestion for my sitch, as I'm basically looking into getting one of these 3 cameras you reviewed here. I'm going to be doing real estate shoots (mainly residential), mostly static shots (both wide & tight) & short, slow pans. need video quality to be really top notch HD...but also need it to take really nice stills & hopefully be able to create panoramics I can stitch together for virtual tours as well. good stabilization & auto-focus capabilities would be nice. here's an example of pretty much exactly what I'm looking to do: http://vimeo.com/69838701 thanks in advance for your help, great review btw!

Sandeep More: Hie... the video is really informative.. i m a enthusiast wildlife photographer n i really want to buy 7d... but recently i heard that canon has stopped its production... would this thing matter if something goes wrong with 7d.. i mean its customer service... 

whysoseriouslycool: Hey, this is a great resource so thank you. I do have a personal question, though. I plan on doing wildlife shooting, interview shooting, and parkour/ gymnastics shooting. I was originally looking at the 7d which is how I found this video but it seems to me now that the 70d might work better for what I want. What do you think? Thanks again! :)

R.D. P.: rollieflex medium format frankie heidecke to sell 4000usd for any one whos interessed..

Sujeet Acharya: Hi, Very nice comparison video. I m almost sold to 70D. I mostly do wildlife with 70% of the time BIF. My Current Camera is 50 which autofocus is too slow and tracking of focus looses while shooting BIF. Do you suggest to go with 70D over 7D and 60D. Appreciate your suggestion.

Aeronauticosty: Dog Whisperer

Bahador Shirazian: Hi Tony, thanks so much for your great videos. I'm a subscriber and I've learned much from you. But, about the buffering...as far as I know the number of images which camera gathers in buffer and THEN starts to clear the buffer to the card has nothing to do with card speed. Card speed only matters when the camera is clearing the buffer; therefore, no matter what type/speed of card you are using, 7D captures almost 25 in a row and then starts to capture 2 for some seconds that in this phase it depends on card speed, and it is 30-33 for Mark III. Just sharing my thoughts... Have fun shooting...

Felix Schwarz: My 70D has audio levels while recording... The input level itself is not adjustable while recording though

Alfred Wu: Love the comprehensive videos. Do you have any opinions on using the newest Tamron 150-600mm VC as a lighter wildlife lens?

Terry Donaldson: looking at the 70d i do i lot wildlife shooting is this camera good for that.

Rachel H: does cannon ever have sales?

Ted S: Tony, we currently use the 60d for a variety of shoots (cooking, fitness, etc). Mostly indoors and not any "sports like" movement. Looking at the 70d, 6d or the 5DMiii in order to get the best quality video.. what would you recommend?
