Lexy spent her formative years taking a lot of photos and dreaming in technicolour. Nothing much has changed now she's covering all things photography related for CNET.

Canon has added a new enthusiast SLR to its range with the EOS 70D.

Designed for photographers looking to step up from their first camera, the 70D presents some significant improvements from the camera it replaces, the 60D. Along with a new APS-C sensor and integrated Wi-Fi, a new focusing system will help boost performance in Live View and movie shooting.

Called Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the system involves two separate photodiodes being positioned in one individual pixel that work independently to seek focus much more quickly in Live View than traditional systems.

More of the technical information on the 70D can be found in our preview. The 70D will arrive in Australia from early September 2013. In the meantime, the images below will give you an idea of some of the camera's features.
