Canon 70D"On service - I live in Quebec, where there is no Henry's unfortunately. However, being the superb camera store that they are, I shop there either online or go in person when in a province with one. Seriously, their staff are the most understanding and knowledgeable. First of all, they're not tech geeks like the big box stores, they're photography buffs like us. Most have actually owned the gear you're going to buy.
The camera - what an amazing workhorse. Coming from a Rebel XSi, this was a significant leap ahead in terms of features and build. It works a focuses phenomenally in low light. It's high speed burst is only bested by the 7D mk ii in t 1.6 crop DSLR's. You get wi-fi which can be a neat feature. The battery life is so good and will get you hundreds of pics mixed use. The cons are few but worth mentioning. The HDR mode can't be used in RAW. The wi-fi won't work in video mode. In camera lens correction can only be achieved using Canon lenses, leaving 3rd party lenses to software corrections. Finally, there is only one SD card slot, however it does work with the new high speed Lexar cards. Bottom line - this camera is an affordable enthusiast's dream! Why are you waiting, put one in the cart!"
