This camera has serious problem of overheat shotting videos or taking photos in liveview. Look for "70D error 80" on Facebook, more than 400 cameras with exactly same problem as you. TY Canon for the worst camera ever. Look for a video call canon 70D error 80 on YouTube.
The EOS 70D is primarily a DSLR camera, which just happens to have the ability to record short video clips. If you primarily wish to shoot video, then I suggest that you purchase a video camera.
The sensor in a DSLR overheats because it is very different from a sensor in a video camera. A DSLR typcially has a CMOS sensor, which allows for high resolution at high speeds. A video camera typically has a CCD sensor, which does not have as high of a resoultion, but also does not produce as much heat, and therefore can operate for much longer, extended periods of time compared to a CMOS sensor.
BTW, Canon DSLRs far outperform the competition when it comes to recording video. Competitor gear overheats even faster.

i saw your post and i would like to request a copy of your letter you sent to canon. i am in the same boat and i know it is the board that is needing repair. i think this should be a recall issue.

yes my 70d has also bit the dust and in the same way as most have described in this thread. the pcb assembly board looks to be the main cause of this problem. i feel this should be a recall issue as it is happening to a lot of people from all the searching i have been doing. from what i have heard canon has worked with some people and repaired for free or charging upto and over $400 for the repair.
for the first couple of years i did not shoot a lot of video so i did not see this problem but over the last year i started moving into the genre and then i started to experience the freezing up part. i thought maybe it was just a card issue and really did not think about it much after reseting the battery. then it started getting worse where in 1-2 mins it froze and would not reset. then it migrated into the picture side where it started freezing up and then finally i went to turn it on and nothing.
i tried new cards batteries the works and nothing would work then i started the research which led me here and many other pages.
it is so sad that this is happening as i love this camera. i am hoping that canon will do the right thing when i approach them again and i have been asking those that have had it repaired for free how they worded their request. if you are one of them that got canon to repair for free please let me know what your approach was to canon. please email me at [MOD NOTE: email address removed per FORUM GUIDELINES] maybe all of us with this problem can get it fixed for free and those that have paid maybe get some money back
