Primarily use Wi-Fi to connect to other devices such as a smart phone using the EOS Remote app.

You can upload to the web via the Canon iMAGE Gateway although I have not tried this.

you can set it to transmit directly with your phone with the wifi on the camera and on your phone. or you can have it connect to a wifi network and have your phone on the same wifi network and they can communicate that way too and remote shoot or transfer pictures to your phone.

Unfortunately, the 70D WiFi doesn't work for video--it has to be disabled when one wants to shoot video. That's a bummer, especially if one wants to use the "video snapshot" feature.

Wow, that's pretty neat stuff. I will check to see which camera's wi-fi is available on. The video showed 6d and 70 but not 7. I guess you can't have the best of all features on one camera? That would be asking a bit much from Canon :-(
Thanks for the links crbinson.

I didn't know this, that's good to know though. I have yet to use the camera for video though.

Thinking about this myself, to be complete, the 5D3 vs 70D vs 7D2. Costs is a factor, not the major one but a 70D will get me a 17-55/2.8 + 70-200/F4 + prime for the same money I'd pay for the 5D3 or 7D2 with one prime lens. Mainly looking for a faster camera than my mirrorless for indoor shots of the kids.

So sorry I haven't been posting, but my computer had a major malfunction. It decided to reformat itself :rolleyes: After getting that fixed I had other issues, so I decided to just get a new computer. NOW ... I am looking to buy my new camera in three weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have to thank all of you for your comments and posts! I've read them all. Very good information. I am leaning towards the 70D. I've been on line for several weeks doing research, and for what I want this camera for I think this will do the trick. I would love to see some photo's taken with a 70D if you have them. My 40D was terrible in low light situations. You couldn't use the ISO over 400 or it was too grainy. According to what I have read, the 70D is a huge improvement.

Anyway ... thank you again! Stay tuned for pictures from my new camera in approx. 3-4 weeks :-D

This is amazing ... ISO at 6400? Wow. My 40D wouldn't even go that high. Now I'm more excited about getting my new toy :) Thank you for sharing!

You can't go wrong with either camera, sensor wise, I have pictures in my gallery all the way to 16,000 iso. grain, yes, but usable when nothing else is available. If you want to do video (not professionally) then I understand the 70D has things that make that much easier. If you want sports and action shots, the 7DII is the better of the two, but the 70D is no slouch.

I'm pretty sure my 7DII could last the rest of my photo carreer and not be too far behind whatever it is current, and build wise, it is a tank and a half like the original.

I'd say it depends on if you want money to upgrade a lens, or if you are satisfied with your current lens line up, then go with the 7DII and don't look back.

However, if you are more portrait oriented, then a 6D isn't out of the question, unless you have a need for superior AF, which both 70D and 7DII will be better suited for.

This is where I am too. I have a enough money right now for the 70d. However, I'm torn and for one or two more shifts, I could go with the 7d mk 2. I primarily shoot wildlife/birds/landsca​pe. I do on occasion film a bit. This will be last body purchase for a while, as my 5dii will pair well with whatever I choose. Oh the choices and decisions.

I own a 70D, but for wildlife and birds, I would certainly take the 7D2. It is on a different level with it's superb AF system and will generate a larger keeper percentage.

Both cameras perform the same for landscapes, with the 70D possibly being more convenient due to the articulating screen.
Both cameras use DPAF so video performance is the same, but again, the 70D is possibly more convenient due to the articulating touch screen.

But essentially, for what you shoot primarily, you should go for the 7D2.
