The Canon EOS 80D is an electronic single-lens reflex camera announced by Canon on February 18, 2016. It includes a body-only MSRP of US$1199, which is equivalent to the Canon EOS 70D, which it replaces. The camera can be bought as a body-only, as kit with the 18-55mm IS STM lens at US$1,049, with the brand new 18-135mm IS USM lens at US$1,799 or with the EF-S 18-200mm Reaches US$1,899.
New features from 70D
When compared to EOS 70D, several modifications were made, including:
New 24.2-megapixel dual-pixel CMOS sensor
45 cross-type AF points, in comparison to 19 for the 70D
Of the points, 27 will support autofocus at f/8 when your body is attached to 1 of 2 specific lens/teleconverter combinations (the Canon 100-400 Mark II with 1.4x III or the Canon 200-400 with 2x III). Any other lens/teleconverter combinations leading to an aperture of f/8 is only going to function with the guts point. The 80D may be the first non-professional EOS body that may autofocus in this example; previous non-professional bodies cannot autofocus if the utmost aperture of an attached lens/teleconverter combo was smaller than f/5.6.
DIGIC 6 (DIGIC 5+ on the 70D)
New 7560-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor to assist the AF system
New shutter mechanism in reducing vibrations and camera shake
“Anti-flicker” (introduced on EOS 7D Mk II) – shutter release could be set to pay for flickering electric lighting
100% scene coverage viewfinder
1080p at 60/50 fps video recording capability
Built-in HDR and time-lapse recording capability (new software)
Better low-light AF battery life, from 920 shots per battery to 960 shots per battery
External 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack
