This is the first test and demonstration of the VAF-70D - our new optical anti-aliasing filter for the Canon 70D!
Similarly to our other VAF-series Video Aliasing Filters for Canon and Nikon DSLRs, the VAF-70D effectively mitigates most of the aliasing, moire, and "stair-stepping" artifacts common in 70D HD video, without significantly detracting from the video sharpness or image quality produced by the 70D. Please download the full, original .mp4 1080p24 video file to fully appreciate the effect of this filter on this complex scene!
A couple of notes on this new filter, about which we've been asked many times:
1) Our prior VAF-60D is incompatible with the Canon 70D; the VAF-70D is a new and different filter, both mechanically and optically, and is designed specifically for the new 70D camera body. The VAF-60D and VAF-70D are not interchangeable.
2) The video auto focus feature of the 70D, works fine with our filter - it behaves just the same with or without the VAF-70D.
Thanks for watching!
