The Canon EOS 70D is a SLR digital camera.

Compact digital cameras are small and easily fit into any pocket. Bridge cameras fill the niche between Single-Lens Reflex Cameras (SLRs) and compact cameras, usually have a better image quality but the lens is fixed and cannot be changed. Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras (MILCs) are smaller than SLRs while providing similar manual settings, but usually have a smaller body meaning there is usually no space for an optical viewfinder. Digital SLRs usually have the best image quality and a wide range of lenses is available for each model, however, Digital SLRs also tend to be the most bulky and expensive camera type.

Choosing the right camera type will ensure that ease of use and image quality match your requirements. Compact cameras are easy to take on holiday while digital SLRs provide the highest picture quality for high end photography.
