Canon EOS 80D Review

Sporting a new higher-resolution 24MP sensor, Canon EOS 80D has a faster processor. It’s beefed-up with 45-point AF system. This enthusiast DSLR is built upon the foundation laid out by the 70D and its superior Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology.

The Canon 80D does an excellent job on various fronts. It has better dynamic range and detail lower ISOs.  This camera has better higher ISO performance and more versatile autofocus. Despite a robust offering on videos, it misses out on today’s favorite features. All in all, the Canon 80D is an excellent enthusiast DSLR.

Canon EOS 80D Design and Build

The Canon EOS 80D appears nearly identical to its 70D predecessor. The Canon 80D’s size and weight hits a nice balance between relative compactness and a comfortably-sized enthusiast DSLR for a variety of hand sizes. As before, the 80D provides a sizeable handgrip with ergonomic contours and a highly textured rubberized coating for a comfortable, secure grip.

Canon EOS 80D Viewfinder

The Canon 80D features a 3-inch touchscreen LCD display with a convenient Vari-Angle articulated design. You enjoy excellent video recording plus shots in awkward positions and angles. The 3-inch TFT LCD touchscreen panel features 1.04-million dots of resolution as the 70D. This camera for enthusiasts includes 7-step adjustable brightness control and a smudge-resistant coating.

Canon EOS 80D Performance

Canon EOS 80D is the real deal for sports shooters and others who capture fast action under indoor or flickering artificial lighting. It helpfully gains the anti-flicker system that was first introduced on the 7D Mark II.

With this system, the camera will be able to detect the fluctuating brightness cycle of artificial lights. It subtly adjusts the timing of the shutter release in single-shot mode. Or, during a continuous burst of frames to capture images at the optimal brightness.

Canon 80D offers solid performance in the picture quality department on all fronts at both low and higher ISOs. The new 24-megapixel APS-C sensor puts the Canon 80D more in-line with many major competing APS-C cameras. It gives you excellent and highly detailed images.

Despite the increase in resolution, the Canon 80D’s new sensor also shows modest improvements. It comes with a higher maximum native ISO over the 70D. You get to experience lower shadow noise with improved RAW high ISO performance.

Awesome

The Canon 80D centers around ease of use. It offers the best dynamic range of any APS-C Canon camera to date and features dual pixel AF, allowing for continuous focus during both video and still capture. The articulating touchscreen is especially handy in live view mode. And while the camera's image quality and video resolution lag behind the competition, the 80D is still a solid choice for enthusiasts.
