20 more focus points. The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

Substantially faster flash X-sync
Comment
0.004 s
vs
0.005 s
25% faster flash X-sync. Flash synchronization is defined as the firing of a photographic flash coinciding with the shutter admitting light to the image sensor. In general, faster flash sync speeds are better if the photographer needs to flash-fill subjects that are backlit and wants to avoid motion blur, or wants to increase depth of field by using a high aperture.

Has a touch screen
Comment
Yes
vs
No
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Considerably longer battery life
Comment
920 shots
vs
600 shots
320 shots longer battery life. CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
anonymous
28
Considerably more cross-type focus points
Comment
19
vs
9
10 more cross-type focus points. Cross-type focus points, in contrast to normal focus points, can detect both horizonal and vertical making them the most precise and reliable focus points to use.
anonymous
27
A shade higher resolution (screen)
Comment
1040 k dots
vs
1037 k dots
3 k dots higher resolution (screen). A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
anonymous
26
More viewfinder coverage
Comment
98 %
vs
95 %
3 % more viewfinder coverage. With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.

Much faster and more accurate focus in Live-View
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Autofocus in Liveview is much faster on the 70D due to the dual-pixel-sensor. It hits the spot nearly every time, unlike contrast-detection.

Top 7 Reasons for Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 IS STM

25
Has focus motor
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.
anonymous
25
Front element doesn't rotate
Comment
Yes
vs
No
The front element doesn’t rotate. This is important if you use filters, as some such as polarising or gradient filters have to be orientated a certain way.
anonymous
25
Has full-time manual focus
Comment
Yes
vs
No
With full-time manual focus you can move the focus ring whilst it is in AF (auto focus) mode. This means that you can make manual adjustments once the AF has finished, without changing to manual mode.
anonymous
25
Is a normal lens
Comment
Yes
vs
No
A normal lens is one that doesn't fall into another category such as wide angle or telephoto, and typically has a focal length between 35mm and 70mm. These lenses aren't tailored towards a specific type of photography, and so are quite versatile.
anonymous
25
Has built-in optical image stabilization
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
anonymous
25
Has rounded aperture blades
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Similar to the number of aperture blades, rounded blades affect the way the light gets through to the sensor. Rounded blades, often only found on more expensive lenses, improve the appearance of the out-of-focus areas. This allows you to attain better, softer looking bokeh in your photos.
anonymous
25
Has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.
