OrmsTV: Hands-On With The Canon 70D

  1. Got myself the 70D with 18-135, what an awesome piece of equipment. Just can’t put it down, the autofocus is very fast and pictures come out crisp. The video is really good especially when you play it back on HD TV. The one reason why I picked this camera is the wireless and I use it a lot for remote shooting and pic viewing. I tested the wireless remote and stood about 30m away from camera and triggered, works really well.

  2. Just like to mention that wireless connectivity with the 70D to Tabs and smartphones is great but to a PC running Windows8 is an issue which I have found out and with the blogs and forums going about, but CAN be conquered as I have. If you really have an issue with it then please feel free to mail me at or call me at 0813023484 and I will be happy to guide you through the process. But once it works it works great ,I shoot more and more wirelessly or remotely lately.
