Canon 80D Review of the pre order announcement.
So let’s first take a look at how the build of this Canon 80d will be.
The body itself doesn’t seem like it’s changed to much apart from a few notable adittions which I’ll talk about soon. It’s got a polycarbonate body which means that it’s dust and water resitant which is always nice.
On the side of the camera is definitely one of the things that I’m most excited and thats the addition of a headphone jack. I actually didn’t expect to see this in the 80d and the fact that it’s added is definitely something that’s welcomed.
Having the ability to monitor your audio, like you can do on the 5d and other video cameras, is a real indication that Canon is targeting this 80d at the video market.
Let’s talk about autofocus in stills mode. Another of the new inclusions which is pretty exciting in the Canon 80d is the continuous autofocus in still live view shooting.
I was lucky enough to spend a fair bit of time testing out the Canon T6s which also had this feature and it was fantastic. Sure it’s not the most pro thing to be shooting with the live view screen, but it’s always nice to have the option.
The 80d also has a big upgrade in terms of autofocus points. Now it’s upgraded to 45 autofocus points and they’re all cross type, which is great. They’ve also supposively improved their dual pixel Autofocus system which to me will be interesting to see because to be totally honest, it was incredibly good in the 70d.
Another exciting upgrade on the Canon 80d is it’s new sensor which bumps up to 24.2Mega Pixels. To me the number of megapixels is definitely not the be and end all, but it’s always nice to see a new señor.
The Canon 70d was easily one of the most popular DSLR’s for video work over the last few years and I’m sure the 80d will continue this trend.
Now there’s no 4k video but to be totally honest I didn’t expect it. If you really need 4k video there will always be other cameras you can get.
An upgrade to 1080p in 60fps is nice to see and took a fair while to get but it’s definitely put the 80d in a nice position.
Other than that they’ve also included a new power zoom adapter. Essentially this is going to allow you to have zoom in and out like a traditional zoom rocker you’d find on a video camera when used with the new kit lens.
To me this isn’t super exciting, as I’ve never really been a big fan of fast or slow zooms in and out on my cameras. But for those who need it, it’s pretty cool .
So that was my little overview of the Canon 80d, hopefully you guys liked it. Like I said at the start, I’ll definitely be getting a Canon 80d in and will be comparing it to a number of other cameras, such as the Canon 70d and the Sony A6300.
