Providing a bright and comprehensive view, the EOS 80D camera’s Intelligent Viewfinder helps bring the thrill of SLR photography with each use. Approximately 100% coverage means there’s virtually no guesswork when it comes to composition, and with all settings available at a glance, the Intelligent Viewfinder helps photographers keep their eye on their subject so the image can be captured at the right instant. The Intelligent Viewfinder displays AF points and AF mode, has a grid display, a horizontal electronic level, plus numerous other points of information, all of which can be hidden for manual focus, or if the photographer simply wants to observe his/her subject without all the image parameters displayed.
The EOS 80D camera features a newly developed 24.2 Megapixel (APS-C) CMOS sensor that not only captures high-resolution images, but also features refined individual pixels that enable high ISO speeds of 16000 for still photographs (expandable to 25600) and 12800 for movies (expandable to 16000, 25600). Equipped with high resolution and high sensitivity, the EOS 80D’s sensor works with the camera’s DIGIC 6 Image Processor to enable Dual Pixel CMOS AF during Live View operation, and while capturing both Full HD 60 fps movies and Full HD HDR movies.
The EOS 80D camera features Canon's improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF for fast and smooth AF during Live View and movie shooting. Boasting enhanced speed, smoother tracking and compatibility with all EF and EF-S lenses, the EOS 80D’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system excels, providing stellar AF and tracking even in difficult shooting conditions. This Canon technology is made possible by placing two photodiodes per pixel, instead of one, and enabling each pixel to perform phase-difference detection autofocus. This means fast, accurate AF and virtually no loss in image quality with extended coverage across approximately 80% of the image plane.
The benefits of Dual Pixel CMOS AF are clearly evident in video shooting, where bringing scenes and subjects into focus is a critical element of the final composition. On the EOS 80D, Dual Pixel CMOS AF helps ensure focus is achieved naturally and precisely, even when switching between subjects. Combined with the predictive power of Movie Servo AF, subjects in motion are smoothly and consistently tracked – once the EOS 80D locks focus, it virtually doesn't let go.
The new EOS 80D camera incorporates wireless technology right into its compact design. The camera's exposure settings, such as aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focus and shutter can be operated wirelessly using a compatible iOS or Android smartphone* with the free Canon Camera Connect app*. Using a compatible smartphone with the Camera Connect app* installed, you can shoot remotely from a distance, even in Live View mode, for those difficult-to-capture shots; you can also review images on the EOS 80D without having to take it out of the bag, and easily transfer and save images directly from the camera to a smartphone.

The EOS 80D camera makes it easy to capture and share high-definition, high-quality movies quickly, easily and with virtually no compromise. In bright daylight or at dusk, whatever the speed of the action, the EOS 80D can help make sharp, beautifully exposed movies that are as easy to share as they are to capture. The camera’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system focuses fast, and Movie Servo AF tracking helps maintain focus even when the action gets going. The Vari-angle Touch Screen monitor also makes it easy to compose from most any vantage point, while Creative Filters and a clever Video Snapshot feature encourage experimentation. The ability to record movies as both MOV and MP4 files makes sharing fast and easy. Manual volume recording control, digital zooming and a headphone terminal add to the EOS 80D’s impressive collection of high-end moviemaking features.
The EOS 80D camera comes with a Vari-angle Touch Screen 3.0-inch Clear View LCD II monitor for shooting videos and stills at a variety of angles, high or low, with up to 270° of vertical rotation and up to 175° of horizontal rotation. Whether shooting with a tripod or handheld, the EOS 80D’s LCD excels in moviemaking at virtually any number of angles and positions, making it easy to create great movies of athletes on the field, kids in the park, documentary interviews and more. The screen is touch-sensitive, delivering intuitive touch panel operation. Two-finger touch gestures can be used for zooming or changing images. Menu and quick control settings can be accessed, and focus point and shutter release can be activated with the touch of a fingertip using Touch AF. Displaying fine detail (at approximately 1.04 million dots), this screen can be ideal for composing and reviewing images. The LCD's surface is also treated with a smudge-resistant coating to help minimize fingerprints and maintain a bright, clear image display, even in bright light.
The EOS 80D camera is equipped with Canon’s DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which helps provide excellent image quality and processing speed in both photos and video. High light sensitivity allows for high resolution with less noise when shooting in dark conditions at ISO 12800. The DIGIC 6 Image Processor also powers the camera's performance capabilities, providing full resolution high-speed continuous still shooting and distortion correction in-camera. Video recording in MP4 format provides seamless compatibility with mobile devices and tablets. Highly compressed MP4 video not only preserves space on your memory card but also improves playback on mobile devices. Recording HD videos using HDR movie feature is possible, expanding creative possibilities.
Thanks to its DIGIC 6 Image Processor and its remarkable noise-reduction technology, the EOS 80D camera features a wide ISO range of ISO 100–16000 (expandable to 25600) for stills and ISO 100–12800 (expandable to 16000/25600) for movies, performing brilliantly in low-light shooting even without a flash. Used with one of Canon's EF or EF-S lenses with Optical Image Stabilizer, the EOS 80D can record beautiful images even when light sources are scarce.
Among the advanced electronics onboard the EOS 80D camera, a fine-tuned RGB+IR metering sensor not only helps ensure accurate exposure, but also uses Color Tracking to detect skin color and help provide precise AF. This is particularly useful when establishing focus for portraits in situations where other AF systems may falter. When a skin tone is detected, AI Servo AF starts off on skin-colored points, then tracks the subject based of the original AF point’s color information, maintaining focus on the person even when they’re in motion.
Capable of shooting up to 7.0 fps during continuous shooting, the EOS 80D is an amazing camera for quick action. Canon's remarkable shutter, combined with speedy, sophisticated electronics, helps ensure virtually instant response and performance. A rapidly occurring scene can be captured moment by moment, second by second, so that even brief opportunities are captured in crisp clarity.
The EOS 80D camera introduces a number of new HDR (High Dynamic Range) modes that offer a great range of highlight and shadow detail for naturally rendered images, especially in contrasting lighting. In HDR Movie mode, the EOS 80D captures two HD movie frames at different exposures, one standard and one underexposed, in short succession at up to 60 fps, then combines them together for playback at up to 30 fps. HDR effects for still photography include Natural, Art standard, Art bold, Art vivid and Art embossed.
The EOS 80D camera has a Time-Lapse Movie feature that takes still photos at set intervals and joins them to create a silent movie. Ideal for showing the moving clouds across the sky, growth of a plant, changes in scenery, the flow of people walking and more, the EOS 80D’s Time-Lapse Movie function creates professional-quality movies in-camera without the need for a computer, saving precious time when out in the field.
To add to the fun and creative possibilities available with the EOS 80D, the camera has seven different Creative Filters for Live View shooting that can dramatically alter the mood and visual effect of any particular scene. Creative Filters include Grainy Black and White, Soft Focus, Fisheye Effect, Toy Camera Effect, Miniature Effect, Art Bold Effect and Water Painting Effect. The EOS 80D also adds five new Creative Filters for movie shooting, including Memory, Dream, Old Movies, Dramatic B&W and Miniature Effect movie. Each effect can be applied in three varying levels and easily previewed on the LCD panel in Live View. Since the filters can be applied to the image after shooting, it's easy to try several effects on the same shot during post-process.
The EOS 80D camera features a flicker detection system that not only alerts the user in the viewfinder, but with the camera's Anti-flicker Shooting function can compensate for flickering light sources, taking shots only at peak light volume. This feature is useful for minimizing disparities in color and exposure, especially during continuous shooting in sub-optimal lighting situations.
The EOS 80D camera features a powerful mechanical shutter system with electronically controlled speeds from 1/8000 to 30 sec. at up to 7 fps. An improved mirror drive enables high-speed, low-vibration performance, and even has a silent mode for up to 3 fps, continuous and quiet use. The shutter is rated to 100,000 exposures, resulting in predictable, reliable performance time after time and frame after frame.

A great DSLR for pretty much everyone from beginners to pros!
By Chris Winter
- BUILD QUALITY -
So let’s first take a look at the build quality and design of the Canon 80d. Now I've been testing the 80d out for a while now and felt comfortable using it pretty much straight away. That’s because the body itself isn’t changed that much from the old 70d, which his the camera I’ve used for 2 years or so. There are a few new things that have changed though. The buttons on the back of the camera are different and feel a lot easier to use. They’re a little bit more pronounced and this is nice.
The grip itself is nice. It’s not a very heavy camera like the Canon 5d or 6d, but it’s also got enough weight on it to easily deal with a heavier lens like the Sigma 18-35mm that I also use. On the side of the camera you’ll also notice a new port, the headphone jack which is something I’ll talk about in a bit. But overall the build quality is fantastic, and to me is the sweet spot size for DSLR’s.
- MENUS -
Now when I first heard about the new Canon 80d, one thing I didn’t expect to change was the menu system. But it has. It’s now a little bit more compact and is using a new tabbed system rather than the old system. It’s taken me a little bit of time to get used to it but it does seem pretty easy. Fortunately it’s not too overloaded with options, especiaslly for beginners, but if you do put it in manual mode you do get a lot more options to play around wiht.
- LCD SCREEN -
Now one of the best features of the old Canon 70d was it’s touch screen and I’m pleased to say the Canon 80d is just as good.
Because the Canon 80d has such fantastic autofocus, having the touch screen really makes things easy, especially if you want to do some nice focus pulls. I use this nearly overtime i make videos and it’s how I do those product focus pulls from time to time. Of course the 80d’s screen is also articulating and it’s something I couldn’t live without now. Being able to switch it around to any angel is great, especially for someone like me who films all my own videos.
It's also a pretty big lcd screen, especially compared to a smaller camera like the Sony A6300 and that’s something I like. It’s deinfitely one of the best LCD screens I’ve ever used.
- AUTOFOCUS -
One thing that I’ve been incredibly impressed with on the new 80d is it’s autofocus performance. And to be fair I was a little bit sceptical at first. That’s because the Canon 70d’s dual pixel autofocus was so good. But Canon have seemed to have been able to make it quicker and a little bit more acurate. Especially using the LCD on the back.
It's incredibly snappy autofocus and when you pair it up with one of the dedicated Canon lenses it really is impressive. I’ve even used it with my Sigma lenses, and it’s pretty consistent across the board.
Now the Canon 70d was one of the most popular video cameras over the last 2 years and for good reason. It’s dual pixel autofocus system was by far the best around. But it was lacking a few things. Firstly it could only shoot 60 frames per second in 720p. Now I’m not a huge fan of filming in 60p, but i was impressed with it. If you want to see a test video I made in 60frames per second, click the link here to see.
I didn’t really expect the dual pixel autofocus to be any better than the 70d but it is. Which is pretty incredible. Being able to quickly pull focus using the touch screen is great and the face tracking works pretty well. It does have problems every now and then if you are wearing a hat or sunglasses though. To be fair, the Canon 80d is still lagging a little bit behind in terms of resolution. There are a lot of cameras that have 4k now and it would have been nice to see it included, but I didn’t expect it to be fair.
Although it is still only 1080p thought the video quality was nice and I’ll definitely be upgrading to the 80d from my 70d for my future videos.
- HEADPHONE JACK -
One of my favorite new additions to the Canon 80d is a little inclusion on the side here, a headphone jack. This is something so basic that has been missing from a lot of Canon DSLR’s for so long and it’s great to see it in. Being able to really monitor your audio is huge and it’s worth the upgrade in itself.
If you’re going to be filming a lot, then the 80d is definitely going to worst the upgrade.

Excellent autofocus in low light even with f8 aperture. Excellent Image quality. Great Ergonomics. Recommended
By Manny V
I have this camera now for about 3 weeks already. This review is based on my day to day usage in realistic shooting conditions.
Camera tested With the
18-135mm USM Nano (kit lens)
100-400mm II + 1.4X Mk I TC
Lasts very long. Roughly for me about 1300 pictures with heavy chimping and sending to phone via wi-fi. I do not review my photos in camera much. With that way, I get close to 2000 pictures per charge.
Takes about 2 hours to charge
Camera battery meter is fairly accurate
Speedy and fast
Accurate even under dim light
Even with the 100-400mm II + 1.4X Mk I combo, it was able to AF quickly and accurately under really challenging lighting condition. The challenging condition I refer to is around 6:30pm in evening in Singapore after rain. Infact it was still drizzling. So the light condition was really low. The subject was a rufous woodpecker on a tree bark. Basically not much of contrast in the subject for camera to be able to AF. Despite this, the camera managed to get the AF quickly and accurately. So it passes the AF test for me with full marks.
I tried the 100-400mm + 1.4X TC for Birds in flight. The camera was able to get subject in focus quickly and reliably. Passes this test as well. BTW - I am a center AF point person and use AI Servo or AFC modes frequently.
The AF with all the above lenses was speedy and accurate.
It is bright and provides accurate results as in what I see in view finder is what the captured image contents will be. The viewfinder also has things like grid lines which could help with composition. Or for ensuring level of horizon when shooting landscape. The AF confirmation lights up bright red in dim conditions. It is a good implementation.
4. Post processing lattitude
I always shoot in RAW and process photos using lightroom. I always found Canon RAW takes well to post processing and have no problems in recovering highlight and reveal shadow information. The 80D raw files allows a more lattitude in revealing shadow information without introducing noise. One time it happened that the exposure compensation dial accidently got dialed down by about 1.5 stop. Luckily I was able to get back lots of details and colours in post processing.
I find the ergonomics excellent for my hands. Everything is good. It is best you handle the camera in a store before buying as everybody has their preference to ergonomics. I can only say based on my own experience, a vast majority of people should be happy with the ergonomics. All the buttons and dialed required by most photographers are there and in th right place.
6. Top LCD
There is a top LCD screen that reveals most shooting information a photographer will need.
7. Articulating LCD
LCD rotates in various angles and directions. I compose mainly using the viewfinder. However I appreciate the fact that LCD can be rotated and stowed away to prevent damage to the LCD screen.
8. Value for money
Given the specs and functions provided by the 80D, in my opinoin, the 80D is an excellent camera and well worth the money
Overall it is a great camera and yes I recommend this to my friends
Update on 4th July 2016: The camera is awesome. I am getting some really excellent images for landscape and birding. In fact my most frequently used lenses are 10-18mm and 100-400mm II with 1.4X extender. Added a series of bird in flight (pictures of red tailed hawk) captured recently at Mud Bay Park here in Vancouver suburbs. This series shows the tracking capabilities of the 80 with 100-400mm II + 1.4X TC. Even a busy background doesn't throw the camera AF off.
My settings for AI Servo are
Tracking sensitivity: -1
Accel/decl tracking: 1
AF pt auto switching: +2
AI Servo 1st image priority: set to extreme right as in FOCUS
AI Servo 2nd image priority: set to extreme right as in FOCUS
Auto selection: 45 point AF (not sure how many points camera actually uses during AI servo with the 100-400mm II +1.4X TC)

Wonderful DSLR for general photography and YouTubers
By P.K. Frary
I replaced my well worn 70D with a shiny new 80D and, although they look and feel similar, I found the 80D laden with new features and image quality improvements over its predecessor.
CONTROLS: Buttons and wheels feel sturdy and may be used while looking through the viewfinder. Exposure modes are set with a topside knurled dial: manual, semi-auto modes and assorted full auto modes. Menus are easier to navigate than the 70D: five icons (reduced from the 70D's fifteen) and organized by category. If you've owned prior EOS models, the interface will be familiar and you’ll barely need to crack the manual.
The VIEWFINDER is a joy to use: bright and clear and, with 100% coverage and .95x magnification, an improvement over Rebels and the 70D. I love the transmissive LCD display (transparent LCD over the focusing screen) as it’s almost like using an EVF: display of icons, AF and metering patterns, grid and plain matte screens and an electronic level.
AUTOFOCUS: The 45-point cross type AF array is fast and sure-footed in low light, besting my 70D in most situations. It has the same AF modes as the 70D—single-point AF, zone AF and automatic selection AF—plus a fourth mode, large zone AF. I was surprised how much more “human aware” auto select mode is compared to the 70D. If a human enters the frame, it locks on them like glue.
LiveView has a new AF mode: AI Servo. Tap the subject on the touchscreen, half-press the shutter button and it does a great job of tracking the subject across the screen. It’s perfect for low level shooting of moving critters or kids.
IMAGES show pleasing detail, color and impressive control of noise. Specifically, there is a significant reduction in shadow noise over the 70D, allowing aggressive lifting of shadows should the need arise.
VIDEO: HD video quality is excellent: less moire artifacts, cleaner in low light and smoother and more film-like compared to 70D files. I’m disappointed 4K HD wasn’t included. However, 1080P is fine for YouTube since audiences mainly watch on phone and notebook screens.
Movie servo is faster than 70D servo and less prone to “hunting” in low light. Focus-pulls are a snap with the touch screen. Movie servo with face recognition works great, allowing me to both shoot and perform in video clips.
WI-FI: Diddle settings, fire shutter, upload images and monitor LiveView and video on an iPhone/iPad, Droid or computer with the Canon Connect app. Wi-Fi eats batteries crazy fast, so carry spares. Video and LiveView are also available via wired USB or HDMI connection and are smoother and less battery draining.
The 80D kit ships with the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 Image Stabilization USM Lens (Black) lens. It’s a wonderful optic and I wrote a detailed review on it here.
FINAL BURB: The 80D is a nimble and capable camera, and an impressive upgrade over the 70D in terms of AF, resolution and control of shadow noise. The bottom line is the many small improvements add up to an enjoyable experience and excellent images and videos.
