In 1984, Canon released the second camera in the T-series, the T-70. The kit included an FD 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 lens or an FD 28-55mm f/3.5-4.5. It used a vertical-travelling, electronic focal plane shutter, offering shutter speeds from 2s - 1/1000s. Like its predecessor, and all the Canon cameras that would follow, it had a built-in auto winder.

The T-70's large LCD panel and key-touch buttons had a major impact on 35mm SLR cameras that followed. The T-70 features shutter-priority TTL auto exposure, TTL multi-program AE, and preset aperture AE. The dual metering system gives a choice of center-weighted averaging metering and partial metering at the center.

In 1984, the camera won the Good Design Award (from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry) and the European Camera of the Year Award.


Exposure Modes: Program (Normal and two variations: Wide and Tele), Shutter-priority (Tv) and Manual. No Aperture-priority (Av).

Depth-of-Field Preview: NONE.

Flash Sync: 1/90. Hot shoe.

Frame Rate: 0.7 FPS; just hold down the shutter button.

Film Rewind: By motor; manual start. I measure 27 seconds for a 36-exposure roll.

ISO: 12 - 1,600.

Metering: Average (ignores only the edges) and Partial: 12mm center-weighted. Works EV 1 ~ 19 at ISO 100 with an f/1.4 lens.

Power: Two A As: alkaline, Ni-Cd and even those crappy "heavy duty" ones you can find in any third-world tienda. Rated 40 rolls of 36 exposure with alkalines at 20ºC. Manual says there's a CR-1220 or BR-1225 lithium to remember the frame counter setting and ISO if you change the AAs, and that it needs to be changed every 5 years. In 2008, my T70 still works fine.

Size: 5-15/16 x 3-1/2 x 1-7/8" (151 x 89 x 48mm), rated.

Weight: 19.772 oz (560.6g), measured, with batteries but without lens, film or strap.

"I actually like the T70 a lot, even though it lacks aperture-priority AE mode.  The manual mode doesn't have that old-fashioned needle indicator that many of us prefer, but it works.Tele Program AE mode is also a great feature."-Chris
