Following on from the advice of the techicians at ITV Granada and sticking to my budget, I invested in a Canon 70D with 18-135mm IS STM lens just before heading back to university. It shoots at full 1080p, 20.2 MP and includes WiFi for transferring photos and video content from the camera to the mobile. The lens so far is absolutely sensational – the AF focus is incredibly quick indeed and makes no noise at all when zooming and focusing. Picture quality is excellent, both on stills and the sharpest of HD video, and handles low light very well.
I’m slowly getting to grips with the many features, this being my first DSLR, and I hope to be able to share some of my results, both stills and video, on the blog very soon.
