Whether raising your game to SLR level photography or having fun with a feature-rich, versatile SLR you can use pretty much anywhere, the EOS 80D camera is your answer. It features an impressive 45-point all cross-type AF system* that provides high-speed, highly precise AF in virtually any kind of light. To help ensure photographers don't miss their shot, an Intelligent Viewfinder with approximately 100% coverage provides a clear view and comprehensive image data. Improvements like a powerful 24.2 Megapixel (APS-C) CMOS sensor and Dual Pixel CMOS AF for Live View shooting enhance the EOS 80D's performance across the board. Complementing the EOS 80D's advanced operation are built-in wireless connectivity and Full HD 60p movies that can be saved as MP4s for easy sharing. Merging power, precision and operability, the EOS 80D is a dynamic SLR camera for anyone ready to realize their creative vision.
For next-level AF operation, the EOS 80D camera has a wide-area, 45-point, all cross-type AF system*. Excellent in dim light, it has improved low luminance performance to EV -3 and is compatible with most EF lenses (lenses with maximum apertures of f/8 or higher, and some lenses with extenders attached may operate at a maximum of 27 points). It also features 4 types of AF area selection modes useful for a number of different AF situations. These include user-selectable Single-point AF, Zone AF, where users can select from one of 9 predefined AF zones; Large Zone AF, where one of three zones can be selected; and 45-point AF auto selection, where the camera detects the AF point automatically.
Providing a bright and comprehensive view, the EOS 80D camera’s Intelligent Viewfinder helps bring the thrill of SLR photography with each use. Approximately 100% coverage means there’s virtually no guesswork when it comes to composition, and with all settings available at a glance, the Intelligent Viewfinder helps photographers keep their eye on their subject so the image can be captured at the right instant. The Intelligent Viewfinder displays AF points and AF mode, has a grid display, a horizontal electronic level, plus numerous other points of information, all of which can be hidden for manual focus, or if the photographer simply wants to observe his/her subject without all the image parameters displayed.
The EOS 80D camera features a newly developed 24.2 Megapixel (APS-C) CMOS sensor that not only captures high-resolution images, but also features refined individual pixels that enable high ISO speeds of 16000 for still photographs (expandable to 25600) and 12800 for movies (expandable to 16000, 25600). Equipped with high resolution and high sensitivity, the EOS 80D’s sensor works with the camera’s DIGIC 6 Image Processor to enable Dual Pixel CMOS AF during Live View operation, and while capturing both Full HD 60 fps movies and Full HD HDR movies.
The EOS 80D camera features Canon's improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF for fast and smooth AF during Live View and movie shooting. Boasting enhanced speed, smoother tracking and compatibility with all EF and EF-S lenses, the EOS 80D’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system excels, providing stellar AF and tracking even in difficult shooting conditions. This Canon technology is made possible by placing two photodiodes per pixel, instead of one, and enabling each pixel to perform phase-difference detection autofocus. This means fast, accurate AF and virtually no loss in image quality with extended coverage across approximately 80% of the image plane.
The benefits of Dual Pixel CMOS AF are clearly evident in video shooting, where bringing scenes and subjects into focus is a critical element of the final composition. On the EOS 80D, Dual Pixel CMOS AF helps ensure focus is achieved naturally and precisely, even when switching between subjects. Combined with the predictive power of Movie Servo AF, subjects in motion are smoothly and consistently tracked – once the EOS 80D locks focus, it virtually doesn't let go.
The new EOS 80D camera incorporates wireless technology right into its compact design. The camera's exposure settings, such as aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focus and shutter can be operated wirelessly using a compatible iOS® or Android™ smartphone* with the free Canon Camera Connect app*. Using a compatible smartphone with the Camera Connect app* installed, you can shoot remotely from a distance, even in Live View mode, for those difficult-to-capture shots; you can also review images on the EOS 80D without having to take it out of the bag, and easily transfer and save images directly from the camera to a smartphone. Full DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatibility means easy sharing between the EOS 80D and other DLNA products, like HDTVs, smartphones and more. Still images can even be transferred between two wireless-enabled Canon cameras over a Local Area Network (LAN). Images and video can be uploaded instantly to CANON iMAGE GATEWAY# for easy sharing on social networking sites, and photos can even be printed on a wireless PictBridge-certified printer without the need for a PC. Remarkably, the EOS 80D has all of these wireless features without the need for any additional accessories; they're built right in!
The EOS 80D camera makes it easy to capture and share high-definition, high-quality movies quickly, easily and with virtually no compromise. In bright daylight or at dusk, whatever the speed of the action, the EOS 80D can help make sharp, beautifully exposed movies that are as easy to share as they are to capture. The camera’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system focuses fast, and Movie Servo AF tracking helps maintain focus even when the action gets going. The Vari-angle Touch Screen monitor also makes it easy to compose from most any vantage point, while Creative Filters and a clever Video Snapshot feature encourage experimentation. The ability to record movies as both MOV and MP4 files makes sharing fast and easy. Manual volume recording control, digital zooming and a headphone terminal add to the EOS 80D’s impressive collection of high-end moviemaking features.
Thanks to its DIGIC 6 Image Processor and its remarkable noise-reduction technology, the EOS 80D camera features a wide ISO range of ISO 100–16000 (expandable to 25600) for stills and ISO 100–12800 (expandable to 16000/25600) for movies, performing brilliantly in low-light shooting even without a flash. Used with one of Canon's EF or EF-S lenses with Optical Image Stabilizer, the EOS 80D can record beautiful images even when light sources are scarce.
Capable of shooting up to 7.0 fps during continuous shooting, the EOS 80D is an amazing camera for quick action. Canon's remarkable shutter, combined with speedy, sophisticated electronics, helps ensure virtually instant response and performance. A rapidly occurring scene can be captured moment by moment, second by second, so that even brief opportunities are captured in crisp clarity.
