There have been rumors some companies may soon come up with a slightly-magic complicated processes they put in that could potentially allow the user a select-able option that would control whether the wifi was on or not.

That's silly. You can turn the wi-fi off on the 70D. No battery killer. Useful when you need it.

Was your sarcasm detector in the OFF position?


Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!

"Clueless consumer: - Doctor, when I have my screen constantly on liveview, and my flash takes about 50 pictures per minute, and my GPS and wifi are on, my battery only lasts for 300 pictures. What should I doooooo?

Doctor: - Buy a second battery? Disable all the features you don't need/use? "

Some good and bad...

It seems to have the 70D sensor. That's not so good. Actually embarrassingly bad given what the competition is doing.

It does have an intervalometer. This is something that should be in every Canon DSLR. I'm waiting for it to trickle down to all models, but at least they are giving us something.

With reports saying exactly the opposite, why does this seem so to you?

Wi-Fi, battery killer don't need it when you are middle of nowhere. Touch Screen again no big deal

You can use the wifi connection to connect to your mobile device/ ipad without an actual internet connection it makes review of pictures very quick... The wifi is VERY handy wouldnt want a camera without it.

On the 6D, GPS is a battery killer.
