EOS 70D Frames Per Second

What a great improvement! I shot a few sport events with Canon's first full-frame DSLR, the Canon 5D. I got some good photos, but didn't realize how much I was missing at 3 frames per second.

The 5D Mark III was a big improvement, able to shoot at 6 frames per second.

Now, I am spoiled. To get 7 frames per second in a camera body that is less than half the price and FASTER at focusing too.

Love the Grip on the Canon 70D

Compared with the 5d Mark III body, the EOS 70D body is lighter and smaller. I really like the grip on the 70D, it's just as deep for your fingers to wrap around.

It isn't as wide as the grip on the 5D, but this would only be an issue if you have exceptionally thick fingers.

Canon EOS 70D Memory

Canon 5D Mark III - Dual Memory Card Slots

Canon 70D - Single Memory Card Slot

Before I purchased my 70D, one of the things that bothered me a bit about this camera was that it only had one memory card.

After all, I've been accustomed to having two different card slots with two different memory card formats on my 5D Mark III.

You get the option of writing to both cards at the same time or automatically switching from one card to the next.

That likely isn't a big deal for you. As it turns out it isn't a big deal to me either. Memory cards' capacities are huge and are so affordable too.

I've never filled a card and been slammed by the flashing "MEMORY CARD FULL" message. That's true for two reasons.

As mentioned modern card capacities are huge. Secondly, I've developed a good habit. The first thing I do after any kind of photo shoot is download the image files to my hard drive.

I back them up onto a Blu-Ray disk, and the I format the memory card.

The dual memory card system on the 5D Mark III can actually be confusing. It's an odd thing, but when you remove the Compact Flash card and the re-insert it. the 5D III reverts back to the SD card as the default.

The Canon EOS 70D single memory card system keeps things simple. Start with a reliable card from a quality manufacturer and you won't have any issues.

Secondly, as soon as your done your shoot, load the images to your computer's hard drive. Back them up to a second location of your choice and format your 70D's memory card.

Have a blast!
