Canon EOS 70D Sample Images

Here are the Canon EOS 70D sample images from a trip to a museum.  These are the first images I took with my Canon EOS 70D and overall the 70D picture quality was very high.

Now that the 70D has become "older" in the fast advancing digital technology world, the Canon 70D has come down to a nice level.

I shot everything inside the museum using a 17-35mm lens because I knew I'd be in tight quarters at times inside the museum. The Canon EOS 70D has a 1.6x focal length multiplier.  With the 17-35mm lens, you'll get a 27-56mm zoom equivalent on a full-sized sensor camera.(crop factor)

This was also the first time I used the 17-35 lens on an APS-C sensor and my first thoughts were on the extent of how the wide-angle view is significantly affected by the 1.6x crop factor.

This ceiling in the main hall of the children's museum likely goes unnoticed by the vast majority visitors, but I thought the lighting brought out some of the details in an interesting way. This photo was shot at about the middle of the lenses zoom range at 27mm.

I also wanted to test the 70D's image quality at high ISO settings.  One of the big advantages of full sized sensors over the smaller APS-C sized sensors is better noise levels at the higher ISO settings.

I included the photos that were shot using at least an ISO setting of 1000 in this section.

It was pretty dark on the lower floor of the museum.  Despite the using ISO setting of 1250, I still needed the support of a pole. I leaned my head against the pole- to get a steady photo because of the slow shutter speed.

The colors were realistic in the jpgs straight out of the camera.  I normally shoot all of my paid jobs using the "raw" quality settings, as I did hear, but I used the unaltered jpgs in all of the sample images in this post.

The contrast between the bright green and red was handled well by the Digic 5+ processor

The photo above was shot at a super high ISO setting and I felt the color shifted a bit too much to the yellow side.  That may not be relative to the higher ISO setting and may be the color temperature of the lights in this particular room.

I did a color correction on this sample and added it below.

I set the camera color balance on AWB (Auto White Balance) and thought the camera made good decisions on how to process the data. After our group was done with our inside tour we headed outside. I gazed back at the building and took this picture after adjusting the ISO to 100.

The exposure was right on the mark, capturing the detail in the shadows of the dark doorway, as well as preserving the highlights in the clouds.

Nightime Pictures With the 70D

I wanted to test the EOS 70D with some long exposures at night and thought there was no better time than on a camping trip. Focusing the lens and getting the right settings are the biggest challenges with this kind of photography.

Image quality of the 70D held up pretty good at a high ISO of 2500. After the late-at-night photography of the stars, I packed up my 70D the next morning and headed off to the almost dried up Watkins Glen.

Video of 70D Images

All of the photos in this video were taken with an EOS 70D too.

Overall, I was initially pleased with the Canon 70D picture quality from the sample images that came out of the camera without any editing.  The 20 megapixel sensor combined with the Digic 5+ processor performed well on its first test drive.

I hope this gallery of 70D photos was helpful. There are more posts on the 70D listed below my signature or you can use the search box below to find any topic on tis website.
