The perfect successor to 70D with a faster focus!
In the form of Canon EOS 80D, Canon has come up with a decent update to its most popular action capable EOS 70D camera. This updated flip-screen dslr camera is packed with the latest versions of the company’s dual pixel CMOS sensor with a much faster autofocus system on the sensor along with some other add-ons. You will find that the camera comes with some major improvements over 70D, including a much better Live View output, once you put your hands on this beast.
- 45 point autofocus system
- Vari- angle touch screen display
- 7fps capture along with focus tracking control
- Penta prism view finder
- Smooth video autofocus
- 1/8000-sec shutter along with 1/250-sec flash sync
- WiFi with NFC
- Absence of 4k video support
- Just a single SD card slot
- Automatic white balance isn’t that good
Canon EOS 80D Review
The Canon EOS 80D is better than its predecessor 70D in photo quality and overall performance, so we can definitely quote it as worth upgrading. Canon EOS 80D has to face a lot of competition from other brands in this price range, even though it is a good performer in the midrange SLR league.

Change the default settings to get the best shot!
There is no question that the Canon EOS 80D dslr with flip screen takes some excellent images, but in order to get the best result, you must either shoot it raw or change its default JPEG settings. The automatic white balance is not good, and cameras like the Nikon D7200 and other Canon models are kind of identical.
The Canon EOS 80D flip screen delivers perfectly in daylight, but the white balance dilemma will come as a major restriction once again. It’s still the cast that prevents the low-light images from going too far into the yellow region.
Canon EOS 80D Fine Detail and ISO
Canon’s Auto Picture Style could drive the shots’ saturation and contrast levels, but the best part of Canon EOS 80D is its latest Fine Detail choice, which works very tremendously in edge processing, while delivering excellent results that go above the raw up to ISO 1600. If we compare it to other APS-C sensor cameras, it provides better sharpness on the thin lines. Even though there is not much of a dynamic range available to cover beyond ISO 1600, while processing raw through ISO 6400, you will definitely get tremendous results.
Compared to the 70D, its Fine Detail mode provides better shots, but in terms of automatic white balance, it falters. In addition, a stronger and cleaner noise profile across ISO sensitivities comes with the updated version. Along with all the picture and color settings, the videos are almost on par with the 70D, but unlike its predecessor, the Canon EOS 80D still supports 1080/60.

Reviews of Canon EOS 80D- live view mode
The Live View mode, along with the quicker autofocus that is now available, is one of the best things about the Canon EOS 80D. Although it’s not as fast as the other mirror with fewer cameras, it still works better than the 70D. In addition, the swiftness remains intact with the other third party lenses, and not just the STM versions of Canon.
On the other hand, the focus of the Servo AI, one of the continuous autofocus of the Canon, also achieves a respectable output while providing sufficient numbers of in-focus shots out of each burst and f/8. While there is no significant change in the continuous frame rate, the raw burst increased from 17 to 21 shots. While shooting the video, the continuous AF also functions smoothly.
In the 9 point zone focus, the Canon EOS 80D is very fine, but like the other cameras, when you allow it to choose from a full range of 45 points, it does not perform well when choosing the correct focus points.

In the 9 point zone focus, the Canon EOS 80D is very good, but just like the other cameras, when you allow it to choose from a full range of 45 points, it isn’t good at selecting the right focus points.
Efficiently designed, just like the 70D
The Canon EOS 80D architecture is more or less the same with a little bit of upgradation as the 70D. Along with a headphone jack and a custom setting slot on the mode dial, the viewfinder is now updated to 100 percent coverage. In addition, the new shutter mechanism is quite smoother and quieter, which will be found at first. With a perfect grip and an integrated touch screen interface for shooting images, it is efficiently designed.
The camera also accommodates some of the latest features, such as Wi-Fi (with a good remote-shooting app) and an HDR in-camera, but some intimidating effects are still not usable. The interval shooting timer will increase up to 99 shots on the other side (if you want more, you have to manually turn it off) and while it is also capable of shooting time-lapse movies, it is limited to the HD resolution and only fixes the exposure and focus in the first frame.
Best deal on Canon EOS 80D
The HDR film, which can combine multiple exposures for each frame while bringing more shadow information, is one of the newest features that you can find in Canon EOS 80D. The feature is, however, only available when shooting in automatic mode (Canon’s Basic Zone) and at a higher compression rate as well. While it has headphones and mic jacks, features such as slow motion or clean HDMI are lacking. While in some respects, the camera has its drawbacks, it is definitely the best and most perfect successor to the 70D.
One of the best cameras for vlogging is this Canon flip screen camera. While in terms of speed it is not on par with the other mirror less interchangeable-lens camera, it delivers with subjects in motion very well. In addition, Canon EOS 80D’s overall enhanced performance would reverberate perfectly with the entire bunch of action-shooting enthusiasts involved in this class of DSLL
