Canon EOS 70D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

44 Reasons why Canon EOS 70D + Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is better

than the average

1.Sizably more megapixels (photo)
20.9MPvs 16.7MP (the average)
vs 108MP (best: Panono Camera)
2.Explicitly larger sensor
22.5 x 15mmvs 14.6 x 10.8mm (the average)
vs 81.2 x 25.4mm (best: Polaroid Snap)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
3.Has a flip-out screen
Yesvs No (75% don't have it)

4.Clearly higher maximum light sensitivity
25600ISOvs 19130ISO (the average)
vs 3280000ISO (best: Nikon D5)
With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
5.Appreciably longer battery life
920shotsvs 516shots (the average)
vs 4400shots (best: Nikon D3x)
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
6.Has WiFi
Yesvs No (67% don't have it)
The device can connect to WiFi.
7.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (53% don't have it)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
8.Has a 24p cinema mode
Yesvs No (76% don't have it)
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
9.Lots higher pixel density
501ppivs 360ppi (the average)
vs 544ppi (best: Sony A7)
10.Noticeably more battery power
1800mAhvs 1212mAh (the average)
vs 4360mAh (best: Samsung Galaxy NX Mirrorless)
11.Has a microphone in
Yesvs No (77% don't have it)

15.Weather sealed
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.
16.Is a system camera
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)

18.Significantly less shutter lag
0.065svs 16.330s (the average)
vs 0.00025s (best: Leica M Typ 240)
The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
19.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
20.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
21.A little more viewfinder coverage
98%vs 98% (the average)
vs 100% (best: Sony A7)
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.
22.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
23.Sizably less startup delay
0.15svs 34.83s (the average)

It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
24.Vastly more cross-type focus points
19vs 13 (the average)
vs 169 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
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.
25.Newer DIGIC version
5vs 5 (the average)
vs 7 (best: Canon EOS M5)
Newer image processors are better at processing multiple tasks simultaneously, and can produce higher quality images with better low-light performance and faster AF.
26.Dual pixel
27.Cross-type focus points
The 70D has 19 cross-type focus points, while the D7100 only has 15
28.Much faster and more accurate focus in Live-View
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.
