Canon T70 equipped with Canon Zoom FD 35-70mm f/4 lens!
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 the 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 centre-weighted averaging metering and partial metering at the centre. There is an electronic self-timer mode that counts down from 10 with audible beeps.
The finder has a 92% coverage at 0.85 magnification. It has a horizontal split-image device focusing aid that is surrounded by a microprism, which is then surrounded by the metering area. It can use film with a range of 12 to 1600 ISO. Power is with two common AA batteries.
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.
