  • Don't buy a kit with a bag
    by: Rachel
    I would have rated this bundle four stars if not for the frustrating experience I've had with customer service surrounding the bag that was sent with the kit. My kit had the body and two lenses (an 18-135 and a 55-250), and the bag that was sent with the kit only fits the body and one lens. It seems pointless for them to send a bag that doesn't fit the kit, especially when there are similarly-priced bags on their site that do. Customer service was very responsive at first, but after I noted that I've since had to buy another bag that actually works for the whole camera, and asked if they could credit my account for the bag they sent or send me accessories for the camera in exchange, it's been radio silence. I'm very happy with the camera and the lenses, but I'm not sure I would buy from Adorama again.

  • Right Decision For Me
    by: PLC
    I am a beginner and want to start up a photography hobby when I retire (hopefully in a couple of years). I wanted to move up from a point and shoot and learn about exposure, shutter speed, ISO, etc. My first DSLR is the Canon 70D. I went back and forth between getting the 7D, 6D, or 5D MK III. In the end I decided to go with the crop camera since the smaller size and lighter weight/smaller lenses were better suited for me (due to arthritis issues). I didn't think I'd care whether the camera had the touch screen but I really love it. Got me a couple of good books and am moving right along, experimenting with all kinds of different settings. Along with the kit 18-135 IS STM I got the 55-250 IS STM and really like both lenses. Very quiet. Am currently researching an additional lens or two plus tripod and head (which has actually been the hardest to decide on). The 70D is the perfect crop camera for me to learn on, easy controls, live view, touchscreen, various autofocus options. Even the Wifi was easy to set up (for using EOS remote from my phone). Since I'm inexperienced I don't have any real technical comments. Looking forward to getting past the point and shoot auto mode and currently working with the AV, TV and P modes. Haven't had any problems with the camera that were not "user induced". Putting off getting a flash since I'm not sure what I'll need it for (probably get a Speedlight 430 EX ??). Would like to also learn video but have not tested that out yet.

  • Great for Intermediate Photographers
    by: Kevin
    I bought this camera after comparing to the more outdated 7D. I haven't found any regrets. I use it for portraits, travel, and other adventures. The swivel LCD is great for tri-pod mounting. The touchscreen gives easy access to all the features. An added novelty is the wifi function, where you can remotely control the camera from any smartphone/tablet anywhere!

  • Focus problem in basic mode
    by: GLG
    I've gone through two of these cameras now and both have had the same focus problem issues. Using the basic auto mode and looking through the viewfinder yielded un-sharp photos. Apparently, the 19-point auto-focus system was flawed, not focusing on the points indicated in the viewfinder, but on something closer in the frame. For instance, focusing not on the person sitting at a table, but on the edge of the table lower in the frame. The results were fine using live-view mode. The first camera also had a flash problem in basic mode where it would often fail to flash in a low light situation. The flash was fine in the replacement camera, but besides the blurry images in basic mode, it would always choose a high ISO speed, like 1600, insuring that all the images were somewhat grainy. I'm mystified by all the positive reviews of this camera, as it appears there is a systematic focus issue problem. I'm guessing many owners don't even bother with the basic mode setting. I usually don't but my wife does and the camera was for her. The camera has many positive qualities, especially for video. And if you never use the basic mode then you'll probably love it.
