The Canon that can: Canon EOS 80D Review

The Canon EOS 80D is a devotee level DSLR, and the successor to the 70D. It dons another 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor which, similar to the 70D, offers Canon's Dual Pixel on-sensor stage identification self-adjust framework. The 80D likewise picks up another 45-point half breed AF framework with the greater part of the focuses being cross-sort. This is a stage up from the 19-point AF framework in the 70D, however not exactly at the same level as the 65-point scope offered by the all the more professionally-situated 7D Mark II. 

Including a body fixed against dust and dampness, the 80D has a polycarbonate outside and magnesium composite suspension. It is about indistinguishable in outline to its ancestor, with the lion's share of controls available by means of the articulating back touchscreen, and also by means of physical control focuses. Video is a noteworthy part of the 80D's aggregate bundle. While it can't shoot 4K, it offers 1080/60p catch and nonstop self-adjust amid video. An earphone attachment has been added to compliment its receiver port. 

Ordinance EOS 80D key components: 

24MP APS-C CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel AF 

45-point AF framework with all cross-sort focuses 

3" 1.04M-speck articulating touchscreen 

1080/60p video catch 

7 fps persistent shooting with AF 

Climate safe body 

7560-pixel RGB+IR Metering Sensor 

Wi-Fi + NFC 

Different upgrades come as another mirror vibration control framework (like the 5DS and 7D Mark II), which ought to diminish the obscure inciting impacts of screen stun. The 80D likewise picks up the same 7560 pixel RGB+IR metering sensor found in the Rebel T6s and T6i, a genuine change over the 63-zone double layer sensor found in the 70D. This new sensor gives the camera some level of human subject mindfulness for subject following through the viewfinder. Be that as it may, dissimilar to the 7D Mark II, the 80D does not have Canon's 'Wise Tracking and Recognition' (iTR) framework, which utilizes the metering sensor alongside separation data to subject track. 

The new sensor 

Its a well known fact that some Canon shooters have been disappointed starting late, as Sony's sensor innovation walks ahead as far as dynamic reach. Luckily, the 80D imprints a critical stride forward in Canon's sensor improvement, offering much preferred DR over the 70D or 7D Mark II. Yet, the new sensor isn't fascinating in light of the photos it can catch. Double Pixel AF not just takes into account constant center amid video catch, however amid still catch (in live view mode) also. We first saw this element in the Rebel T6s and it is energizing to see it now advancing up Canon's evolved way of life to lover level cameras. 

Beside the 70D, the nearest kin to the 80D is the all the more professionally-situated Canon EOS 7D Mark II. It utilizes a marginally bring down determination chip and offers less dynamic extent than the 80D. While the two have the same fundamental video specs, the 7D Mark II is better prepared for quick activity, because of more prominent AF point scope, a devoted AF joystick and the incorporation of Canon iTR, and additionally a quicker shooting rate. Then again, the 80D's touch center capacities settle on it an all the more engaging decision for video. 

Obviously the full casing Canon 6D now falls into a comparative value class to the both the 80D and 7D Mark II, making it deserving of thought. In spite of the fact that it's a long way from new the 6D remains a strong and prevalent camera in spite of its relatively shortsighted AF framework. 

Alongside the declaration of the 80D, Canon reported the DM-E1 shotgun amplifier (perfect with any camera that has a 1/8" attachment). Standard additionally declared the PZ-E1 Power Zoom Adapter. It can cut onto the new EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM unit lens and control the zoom, with two rate choices. The DM-E1 will offer for $250, while the PZ-E1 will run you $150. Lamentably, we couldn't get hold of either new adornment in time for this audit, yet we'll be overhauling our impressions when we can. 

Estimating and accessibility 

The Canon EOS 80D is accessible now at a body-just cost of $1199/£999/€1199. Kitted with Canon's new EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens, the 80D will run you $1799. Kitted with the EF-S 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, the 80D will run $1349/£1089. 

Control focuses on the Canon EOS 80D are almost indistinguishable to its forerunner, the EOS 70D. Truth be told, except for an adjustment fit as a fiddle of the Q Menu and Playback catch, you'd be unable to distinguish the 80D one from the other from the 70D, regarding physical outline and catch position. 

There are two or three other unobtrusive contrasts between the two however, similar to the option of an earphone port on the 80D and additionally an additional custom spot on the mode dial ('impacts' has likewise been added to the mode dial). 

From the top, the 80D looks simply like the 70D. On the left half of the camera is the mode dial, which has a locking component to keep away from unplanned knocks. On the right half of the camera, along the LCD, you'll find direct access to AF mode, Drive, ISO and Metering. None of these catches can be reassigned, yet given how EOS DSLRs have advanced over the recent decades we didn't anticipate that them will be. To one side of the Metering mode catch is the LCD board brightening catch. 

In the middle of the control dial and shade discharge is the AF territory choice catch. It is particularly intended to be utilized with one's eye to the discoverer. Tapping it permits clients to hop between the four AF zone modes rapidly (modes are shown in the highest point of the discoverer when the catch is hit). 

Of the catches offered along the upper right divide of the camera, just the ISO and AF territory determination catch can be utilized with one's eye to the discoverer. The rest require taking a gander at the top LCD to change. 

In case you're thinking about the 80D as a move up to one of Canon's Rebel-arrangement cameras you'll get many more physical control focuses. Indeed, even an update from the present leader Rebel T6s (which has two control wheels) picks up you an AF-On catch, AF Mode catch, Drive catch and Metering catch. A redesign from whatever other Rebel camera will twofold your number of control wheels. 

Ergonomically, the significant thing that you give up by picking the 80D over the 7D Mark II is an AF determination joystick. There are, be that as it may, a few alternatives for moving your point or zone around the edge. The default strategy includes hitting the AF Point Selection catch and afterward utilizing the control dial and Multi-controller to climb/down and left/right. You can likewise reinvent the Multi-controller's bolt keys to move your AF point, however that can be uncomfortable to reach. 

When I began this audit, I additionally found the area of the AF-On catch to be a bit of befuddling, particularly with the other two indistinguishably estimated catches alongside it. This frequently brought about me hitting the wrong catch when I intended to hit AF-On. What's more, was particularly valid with my eye to the discoverer. 

Obviously, notwithstanding physical catches, the 80D likewise has a touchscreen where most settings can be balanced with the press of a finger. You can read more about its usefulness here. 

The greater part of control focuses on the 80D are all around set and simple to access without much complain. In any case, on the off chance that you pick to set the multi-controller as your AF point selector, it can be extremely hard to access with one's eye to the discoverer. It requires a genuinely expansive downwards development of your thumb 

The 80D joins Canon's most recent tabbed menu framework. Depending which mode you've chosen through the Mode dial, you'll have either five menu segments or three (when utilizing P, TV, AV, M, B, C1, or C2, you'll have every one of the five). Those five areas, (appeared above) incorporate the Shooting, Playback, Setup, and Custom Function menus and a My Menu choice in which you can spare your most loved alternatives for snappy access. Those last two areas are not accessible in what Canon alludes to as the 'Fundamental Zone Modes,' AKA, the tenderfoot modes. 

For more control offer the bare essential operation, head to the Custom Function Menu. There you'll discover three sub-areas including Exposure, Autofocus and Operation/Other. The Autofocus sub-area specifically has a great deal of valuable alternatives, which we take a gander at nearer on the AF page. Not at all like it's huge sibling, the 7D Mark II, the 80D does not have a devoted AF menu. 

The Canon 80D utilizations the most recent execution of Canon's touchscreen interface - fundamentally the same found in the EOS Rebel T6s. The greater part of the capacities and settings you can get to by means of physical catches, you can likewise change through the touchscreen interface by means of the Q menu (essentially tap the "Q" in the upper right of the screen). At the point when shooting stills in Live view mode, the touchscreen can be utilized to choose a subject to track or to bolt concentrate on a particular point. You can likewise set the camera to center and fire the screen with a solitary tap of a finger. 

For clients stressed over utilizing the touchscreen when shooting as a part of the frosty while wearing gloves, there is an alternative on page four of the Setup Menu called 'Touch control.' Here you can change the touchscreen to delicate mode (or turn the touchscreen off all together). I had a go at utilizing the 80D on touchy mode wearing a couple of generally thin gloves and thought that it was still was very responsive. 

Shockingly, the touchscreen can not be utilized as an AF touchpad when one's eye is to the discoverer. We've seen this element offered by different producers, and it would be a pleasant approach to get around the way that the 80D does not have a physical AF joystick for selecting self-adjust focuses. 

The touchscreen interface can likewise be utilized from inside the camera menu and amid playback. Clients can squeeze to-zoom and swipe to rapidly flip through pictures. For additional on utilizing the touchscreen's operation and best practices in both stills and video mode, head to our live view and touchscreen page. 

At the point when shooting through the viewfinder, hitting the "Q" catch on back of the camera rings the Quick Menu. It appears to be indistinguishable to the Q Menu found in all present Canon DSLRs, and is not adjustable. The touchscreen is particularly helpful for quic
