The Canon DSLR line has been updated with the new Canon EOS 80D. The 80D offers all the functionalities of its predecessor, the 70D, like Wi-Fi, touch screen, but comes with an array of upgraded features. With its impressive 24.2-MP dual pixel CMOS sensor, it offers a vastly improved AF point module of 45-points, all cross-type, with a much wider coverage area, as opposed to the 70D’s 19 AF points. The AF module is able to focus in low light conditions as far as -3EV at the center point.
This new model offers a native ISO range from 100 to 16,000 which can expand to 25,600 and makes use of Canon’s powerful DIGIC 6 processor. It can capture high-speed images precisely at 7FPS, also making use of its all cross-type 45-point AF module, ideal for shooting fast moving subjects.
It is outfitted with an optical viewfinder that has an approximate coverage of 100% and a fully articulated 3” touchscreen LCD.
For vloggers, unfortunately, it does not offer 4K Video, however, it uses the Dual pixel CMOS sensor to shoot at 1080p and 60FPS and features Anti-flicker shooting, a built-in headphone jack and stereo microphone, with manual audio adjustment, as well as an additional stereo microphone jack.
The Canon EOS 80D is coming soon to B&H with a price tag of $1,199 body only or $1,799 paired with the 18-135mm lens.
