Canon 80D : Master of autofocus cameras in Midrange

The Canon EOS 80D is an awesome  enthusiast-level DSLR, successor to the 70D. It sports a 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor which,  is equal to the 70D with Canon’s- autofocus system on-sensor . The 80D also has a new 45-point hybrid AutoFocusing system with all of the points being as cross-type. This is a forward look  from the 19-point AutoFocusing system in the 70D, though its not quite at the same level as the 65-point coverage offered by the7D Mark II is  more professionally-oriented .

Featuring a packed body gives resistance against dust and moisture, the 80D has a polycarbonate body on exterior and magnesium alloy on chassis. It is very identical in design with 70D, and  the majority of controls accessible via the 180 degree rotating  rear touchscreen, also can be managed via physical control buttons. Video recording is a major part of the 80D’s  package. While it  has a no support to shoot 4K, it  offers 1080@60fps recording  and continuous a  autofocus during  the video. A headphone socket has been added to  its microphone port to connect the external microphone, because it cannot absorb the sound as clearly as the external microphone .

the key features of Canon EOS 80D :

24MP APS-C CMOS sensor with the Dual Pixel AutoFocus

45-point AutoFocusing system with all cross-type points

3″ 1.04M-dot rotating touchscreen

1080/60fps video capture

7 fps continuous shooting with AutoFocus

Weather-resistant body (resistance against dust and moisture)

7560 pixel RGB + IR Metering Sensor

NFC +   Wi-Fi 

 the Other improvements apper & developed in the form of a new mirror vibration control system as similar to  5DS and 7D Mark II, which will help in reduce the Blur-Inducing effects of Shutter shock. The 80D also has the same 7560 pixel RGB + IR metering sensor found in their camera’s of Rebel T6s and T6i, is a serious improvement over the 63-zone dual layer sensor that found in the 70D. This new sensor provides the camera some x degree of human subject awareness for subject tracking through the viewfinder which is a better thing. However, unlike the 7D Mark II,in this camera  the 80D does not have Canon’s ‘Intelligent Tracking & Recognition’ (iTR) system, which used in the metering sensor along with distance infomation to subject track , cosidering the price point of the camera.

The new sensor

 Fortunately, the 80D makes a significant step higher in Canon’s sensor development, offering a better DR than the 70D or 7D Mark II. But the new sensor is not interesting just because of the pictures that  can capture.  in this Dual Pixel AF not only allows for continuous focus during video recording, but it will not work during still capture as well.

A step from the 70D, the closest predecessor to the 80D is more  professionally-oriented  than Canon EOS 7D Mark II. It uses a  lower resolution chip and offers less dynamic range than the Canon 80D. While these two share the same basic video specs, the 7D Mark II is more for fast action, thanks to greater AutoFocus point coverage, a dedicated Autofocus joystick and inclusion of Canon iTR, as well as a more faster shooting rate. On the other hand, the 80D’s touch focus capabilities make it a more useful choice for video.

Of course  now the full frame Canon 6D now falls into a better & similar price class equaling the both  80D and 7D Mark II, making it a best choice of consideration. Although it’s very far from new,s the 6D remains as a solid and popular camera despite of its comparatively  & simplistic AF system.

The 80D attached with PZ-E1 Power Zoom Adapter connected to the EF-S 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM kit zoom lens. This adapter allows for camera smooth zooming at variable speeds.

Along with the launch of the 80D, Canon also launched a DM-E1 shotgun microphone compatible with any dslr or camera that has a 1/8″ socket
