Rachel H: does cannon ever have sales?
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...

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! :)
Lee Ding: real life comparison plz
Yogesh Sarkar: Excellent video review and comparison of #Canon 70D, 7D and 5D Mark III for
Wildlife and Sports #Photography
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.
Terry Donaldson: looking at the 70d i do i lot wildlife shooting is this camera good for
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...
Peter FitzSnuggly: Just viewed this vid - Great Advice - I have the 7D & 400- 5.6 & they are
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.
Keith Baty: Great video, help me out a lot.
Fake Produser: yes very good thanks good teacher straight to the point
Joao Vital: The autofocusing system only works with a STM Lens?
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 !!
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:
thanks in advance for your help, great review btw!
gab: Well... thank you ! I learned what I wanted :)
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
Steven Heathcote: Frikkin Ads Piss me off !!!
Mothmallow: How does someone this young have white hair?
chadwboyer: You don't get it. The Mark III advantages lie, not with stills, but video.
Much like the Luddites who railed against the coming of 'Talkies', there
are those who prefer the 'silent pictures' of stills. Of course, Luddites
also preferred horses to cars, and the dinosaurs couldn't stand the cold.
Furthermore, this video is close to overexposed, like most of what you do;
I bought your book, so I know.
Steven Heathcote: Oh yeah, This is good stuff by the way. Very Informative. You know your
jjicurn03: Outstanding. Really appreciate all the helpful information. Your laid back
easy style makes this much less intimidating. The side by side photos w/
explanations re: details and clarity/pixals was most helpful. Thank you!!
Tony Northrup: Yeah, the T3i to the 70D is a good upgrade for sports and wildlife, more
for the focusing system than the fps. The 24-105 is a good all-around lens,
but not for a crop/compact body like the t3i and 70d--check my Photography
Buying Guide (available using the 'worldwide' link in the description) for
detailed recommendation. I also discuss exactly when and why you might need
(or not need) IS in the Lens chapter of my Photography Buying Guide, and
specifically I recommend different 70-200 lenses.
Jaebird82: great video. im thinking about upgrading from a t3i to the 70d for the
faster fps. worth the upgrade for sports/wild life photography? do you
enjoy your 24-105l ? Thinking about making it my first L lens. Oh and one
last question: 70-200l with IS. Do you think going non-is is a bad idea?
Samtagri: Good information and advice from an experienced wiled life shooter. Please
don't wear a camo shirt when doing videos!
Mighty Noodle: Dude, you put a link up there for a $10k lens..
AmvC: Please, don't shot video using the autofocus ... it can never, never, never
know what you want to be in focus!
See Mee: oh wow; now wonder it sounds so good - audio for $800 better sound good! lol
Tony Northrup: Would you believe that's the budget option? Seriously, it's common to spend
over $2k for professional wireless lav mics.
Tony Northrup: Thanks, and yes, the Sonys SLT design is great for focusing with video.
I've seen some side-by-side tests and it seems the Sony is a tiny bit
better in good light, and the 70D is a tiny bit better in low light... but
they both seem to get the job done.
Tony Northrup: You're welcome. By the time we recorded the last 70D video, I began calling
them the "7" and "70D".... and I almost want to switch to Nikon just
because they were wise enough to put the D first.
medicineman4040: Mr. Northrup you are the BEST most practical/real world reviewer I've seen!
Thanks! I'm a Canon fan (6D,70D,T2i modded for astro) and IMHO IF someone
insists on DSLR video Sony still wins...I did this video with both Sony A77
and Canon 70D:
LegendaryWaterBottle: I don't know if Tony is doing this on purpose, but he says "SEVEN d" (Less
emphasis on "d") to not get confused with SEVEN-TY. They sound amazingly
alike. Thanks Tony for info and paying attention to little details that
make this video far less confusing!
Glenn Walbek: Tony, there is an important point that should be made when considering the
70D. Macro photography. I and several friends shoot mostly birds, but
butterflies and dragonflies also using macro lenses. The flip out screen of
the 70D would make shooting macro much easier, especially when the subject
is on or near the ground.
Tony Northrup: Yes, articulating screens are great for that.
Tony Northrup: Sennheiser ew-100 G3
See Mee: what mic are you using in this vid?
bigfhands: Amazing amazing amazing videos but they are very long for youtub. If u
intend to get any info from these videos take some time out of your day and
prayitnog: :(, I would if I could :). Keep up the great work and the bird photography
tutorials, they are very insightful!
Tony Northrup: I would love to, if I could just convince someone to send me a bunch of
prayitnog: Hello Tony, your video tutorials especially the bird photography ones are
very helpful. Would you ever consider doing a Nikon version of this video?
Like comparing the D300, D7100 and D800 as wildlife cameras or something.
and suggesting a wildlife camera+lens set up. (Maybe the 300f4 af-s + 1.4tc
and a D7100?)
Tony Northrup: Hi, Jayesh. This question is too complex to answer in a YouTube comment.
However, I give specific recommendations for wildlife photographers in my
Photography Buying Guide, available using the 'Worldwide' link in the
description of this video. Thanks!
Jayesh Ailani: Hi Tony..... I am a amateur photographer wanting to be a wildlife
photographer which camera would you recommend for me.......
DIGITALSCREAMS: Thanks Tony, I'll check that out. Initially, I'll be pairing the 70D with
the 17-55mm f2.8 lens. Ultimately I would like to get the 24-70 f2.8 L II
and 70-200mm f2.8 L II and use those two lenses with a 5D MK3 or 4! body. I
appreciate there is a ton of equipment I could look into. I suspect lenses
will get the priority...then Ill look into all the other bits and pieces.
Photography is all new to me and exciting. Im sure I'll get a much better
idea of what I need as time goes by :)
Tony Northrup: Yeah, it's an awesome all-around camera. However, depending on your needs,
you might be better off getting a less expensive camera and saving some of
your budget for lenses, flashes, tripods, software, etc. Check my
Photography Buying Guide (available at Amazon or by using the 'Worldwide'
link in the description, with the coupon code) for detailed information
about the best way to spend your budget on cameras and other equipment to
really get great photos.
DIGITALSCREAMS: Hi Tony. Would you say the EOS 70D is a good choice for someone starting
out in photography, who wants decent quality images whilst
learning/developing their skills? The 70D looks to be a perfect entry level
camera for me. The auto mode looks simple enough and there is also a decent
amount of manual control under the hood to explore once I get more
knowledgeable and confident. All in all....it appears to be a perfect
camera to learn before moving up to full frame. What do you think?
metrobum: Why isn't sharp.... It's going to be sharp... it better be sharp >:D
LilveSuncoast Matt: Thanks! I missed the latest so I'll look that up. Really appreciate both
the incredibly detailed review and the response. Thank you.
Tony Northrup: I do cover low light in my latest 70D comparison, so check that for
details. Also check my Photography Buying Guide (available at Amazon and
the third link in the description). But the short answer is that the 7D and
70D won't be any different for low light still photos.
