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!

Really nice upgrade from the T6i for video and photography
By Amazon Customer
I upgraded to the 80D from the T6i and saw a major performance improvement for what I needed. I work on a combination of photography and video for my customers and I needed something that allowed me to manage multiple camera equipment without requiring my full attention to detail regarding lighting, focus, etc.
For video, the autofocus feature is extremely fast. It is great for vlog/self interview type of setup or for interviews with others. For getting your shot just right, the camera allows for quite a bit of adjustments and the touch screen features are handy. That being said, I have a C100 Mark I for my shots that require a lot more detail and adjustments. This camera is much more for my quick shots and interviews. This all being said, I have never owned the 70D so I cannot give you a good comparison on this body vs. that one. From what I have seen though, the 45-point auto focus performs extremely well and can help get your shots when dealing with subjects that move around a lot. I have also found that this camera does very well in low-light. All-in-all the video really helps amateurs like me get the shot right (or better) and deals away with some of the issues I have when I am in a hurry to get my shot.
For the camera, the higher pixelation is really nice, but what I love most is the viewfinder. It helps me get my full shot detail, which is a major win for me from the T6i especially when dealing with wide-angled shots. I have also found that it helps me get more out of my lenses than the T6i, increasing the range on my telephoto lenses as it increases their reach. The camera has better iso performance, and faster shooting in raw and jpeg. All in all, I am happy with the increased capabilities between the two

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.
