For next-level AF operation, the EOS 80D camera has a wide-area, 45-point, all cross-type AF system*. Excellent in dim light, it has improved low luminance performance to EV -3 and is compatible with most EF lenses (lenses with maximum apertures of f/8 or higher, and some lenses with extenders attached may operate at a maximum of 27 points). It also features 4 types of AF area selection modes useful for a number of different AF situations. These include user-selectable Single-point AF, Zone AF, where users can select from one of 9 predefined AF zones; Large Zone AF, where one of three zones can be selected; and 45-point AF auto selection, where the camera detects the AF point automatically. * The number of AF points, cross-type AF points and Dual cross-type AF points vary depending on the lens used.

I Saved Money!
By Tara L. Beard
There were no other reviews, and little info on the international model. So I was worried about how the this model might differ from the normal model, which currently costs about 250 dollars more. But I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box.
The camera came with:
- 1 battery (0% charged though)
- Canon EOS 80D Strap
- The battery charger.
And the language was already set to English.
The main difference in the international version is the lack of a warranty which would normally be a one-year warranty provided by Canon.
But you save $250 when buying this version. So I put that money towards a four year warranty through Warrentech for $89.99. Amazon gives you this option when buying the camera. When you add your own warranty, you end up with three more years of protection compared to Canon's standard warranty that comes with the non-international version. The difference is that any repairs are provided through Warrentech instead of Canon. 4 Year Camera Accident Protection Plan ($900-1000)
The one minute downside is that the shipping is a bit slower coming from Japan. It takes 4-5 days as opposed to the normal 2 day shipping.
So after buying a warranty separately, I saved $160 and have a four-year protection plan. I'm a happy camper!

Glad I bought it!
By Mx. Pw
Only had a few days. But so far I love it.
It's the real thing, the cost difference comes from cutting out the middle man and the warranty, I think.
I found that I was still able to go on Canon USA and download the EOS Utility app.
Heads up though, Amazon suggests a warranty with this product but the company doesn't actually cover it. It's in the fine print of terms and conditions of a few differ companies that offer electronic extended warranties. I asked customer support they said yes, but I'd sent an email to few companies and they said they do not cover products that never had the manufacturers warranty. There may be a way around it, but I didn't want to risk it.
If your truly worried about your equipment, look into getting insurance. You can get your camera covered under home/renter insurance and places like State Farm. But if you're thinking of going pro, go for PPA and the like as they offer more benefits for pro photographers. A lot of the time insurance will not only cover drops/spills but theft too!
Anyways I love the camera, it's operating great, excited to shoot more and more, and friends are jealous of my shiny new 80D! Happy to save a bit of money and and used it to get other equipment.

Bought this camera mainly for video to shoot weddings. I use full frame cameras for the photography but this one is now them main camera for video capture. The autofocus tracking during video is really impressive, and having full HD at 60fps is nice. The video quality is quite good and this camera is a huge upgrade for video capture from previous versions i.e. 60d. The image quality is very usable at 3200 ISO. There are a lot of interesting features on this camera such as timelaspe and 2x zoom at 1080 video that add to the value. I would not hesitate to buy the foreign market camera and save some money.
