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. In dim lighting, 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. To help ensure photographers don't miss their shot, an Intelligent Viewfinder with approximately 100% coverage provides a clear view and comprehensive image data. 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 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.

Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
For instance, as you are looking through the viewfinder and see a bird on a limb. You can quite easily press the focus point button and cycle through to select a single point. Then you can use the two dials, multi-function keypad, or touchscreen to select which point you want so you can quickly get it onto the bird while maintaining your composition. (Note I tried the touchscreen after I saw someone doing this live with an M5-- it only works in the select mod on the 80D, but it is still a cool way to select it-- again you can just keep your eye on the viewfinder the whole time).
One thing I learned was the mic is pretty darned sensitive for video work. I am so glad I threw down an extra $50 to get the 18-55 STM. It is amazingly silent. All my other lenses make some noise that the camera picks up. There are lots of web reviews on that subject. I wish I threw down a little more to get the 18-135 -- oh well. Note: if you manually focus, then pretty much any lens is quiet enough.
1. You shoot a lot of video (weekly basis minimum), and need the added headphone jack.
2. You shoot a lot of action (Sports, wildlife, anything that moves fast and is hard to track), but don’t want to shell out for a 7DmkII.
3. You get paid for your photography or are very serious about the hobby, or at least have a lot of disposable income.
I say all this because this is an expensive camera, and is so because it is loaded with features and has a solid build. For people that are not out shooting all the time than it is likely too expensive for what you are doing. For those that are doing those things then it very well could be the best value in an APS-C camera before you get to the more expensive offerings like the 7D or go to a full frame. With that said, let’s get started.
As with all WOFG photography reviews, I have a lot to say here. I will start out by reviewing the camera, and as I do that I will offer up advice for how to use it best. After all that, I will also offer some suggestions for less expensive systems that might be just as good for you, as well as one that is a step up, and the reasons why you would benefit from each.
Pros (So many!)
1. High resolution- 24mp is, in my opinion, the sweet spot for high resolution on APS-C cameras. If you start to add too many pixels you run the risk of too much pixel density, which leads to increased noise. Really, anything over 18mp is still pretty usable these days, but the additional 6mp makes the 80D takes some sharp images. I’ll let the samples images speak for themselves.
2. Great for video – Having all the things you would want for video short of 4K, the 80D is still one of the best out there. Featuring Canon’s industry leading dual pixel auto focus, it can track subjects as they move through the frame, while transitioning focus smoothly and silently (for quietest operation STM lenses are best). The fully articulating touch screen is a game changer for pulling focus, just touch it where you want the focus and watch the smooth, cinematic transition. It also features a mic port for adding an external mic for improved audio. And unlike other less expensive models, it also has a headphone port for better monitoring of sound. And of course, the flip out screen makes it pretty universally useful for vlogging as well as other functions too (low angles are so much easier). The 1080 full HD resolution along with the 60p frame rate make it great for vlogging too. I would suggest that if you only want to do video to look at my “other recommendations” first for some less expensive models that might work just as well.
3. Solid Body – Made from a durable plastic, the body feels very solid. It’s not as robust as the 7D or 5D, but it can survive some punishment. It also has some weather sealing, but again, not as much as the 7D or 5D. If you get caught in the rain, you should be able to get to cover and save your camera. I wouldn’t shoot prolonged without a cover, and I would also be sure to wipe the moisture from the camera as well. Note – A fully sealed lens is also needed for this, IE, expensive. Also, the shutter is rated to 100,000 actuations, which is pretty high for a camera in this class. The 80D was built to last.
4. 45pt AF system – Coming up from a Rebel T3i, the 45pt AF system was a pretty big selling point for me. 9pts was just not good enough to shoot anything action related, and I had to rely too much on luck to get a good keeper. The 80D was the first Canon to use the 45pt all cross type AF system (it’s similar to the 7DmkII only with less overall points). It allows some options for custom shooting, like the different zones you select; you can select a smaller grid that is 3x3 for tighter shots, a 3x5 zone that can take up the left, middle, or right, or you can select a single one of the 45 pts to have precise control of the focus, and of course you can also shoot with all 45pts. They don’t cover 100% of the viewfinder, more like 75%, but I haven’t had any real trouble with it, and there are not a lot of systems that cover 100% anyway. Tip – Look into a technique called “focus and recompose” if you haven’t already. Very helpful for composing those perfect shots.
5. Fast burst – 7 frames per second burst is pretty awesome. If you are currently using a system that can only do 3 or 4 frames, then you will see a large benefit from this. There are faster cameras out there to be sure; some of the latest mirrorless can do 10-20. But they are either much more expensive or they lack enough buffer to shoot in RAW. The 80D clears buffer pretty well, but slows down considerably once it starts to fill. Read on for more info on this in the Cons. For reference, using a 95mbps card I can get 24 raw or 50+ jpeg before I hit the brick wall.
6. Control layout – One of the things Canon does well is the layout of the controls. Several quick buttons on the camera make changing settings on the fly much easier, along with the touch screen too. I like that it has a second wheel for better control of settings in manual and selecting AF points/grids (It is also the EV+- adjustment in place of a dedicated button). There are quick buttons by the top LCD screen for your ISO, AF type (single, AI, servo), drive (burst, single, and so on), metering mode, as well as one to change AF points. There is also a back button focus. So many controls! Maybe overkill for casual shooters though, and the learning curve is pretty steep if you are used to something like the T6 or other Rebel models. I personally think the added controls are only a real necessity to those shooting in manual mode a lot, or that shoot sports or wildlife. Casual shooters are probably fine with something less expensive.
7. Vary Angle Touch screen – If you aren’t familiar, then you should know that Canon has the best ergonomics for their screen. You can flip it around to face front, angle up or down, it’s great for vlogging or low angles or high angles. The touch interface is nice for changing setting and also for zooming in and out reviewing photos, and is very valuable for video focus. It can even be used as the shutter! Just touch the screen where you want to focus and it shoots, just like a cell phone.
8. High end specs – I don’t want to just spit out specs here, so the gist is that it has what you would want in a pro camera without the price tag of a pro camera. 24mp resolution takes sharp images, good ISO performance and can focus well in low light, fast shutter speeds, quick and accurate AF performance, great color rendition, it’s a do it all camera. For Canon, you can’t do better without spending almost twice the money.
9. Other stuff – When using an extender can still AF at F8. Uses the same battery as the 5D for a very long life. Grip available and is also weather sealed (third party options are not likely sealed). Uses both EF and EF-S lenses.
Cons (Most this is part of the listed specs of the camera and is here for your information and not worth a star off. It is up to the user to understand what they are getting and how to use it)
1. No 4K – For those that are wondering the 80D cannot shoot 4K. (I suspect the 90D will, whenever that is announced.) If you intend to shoot 4K, keep in mind it is a large commitment to storage space as well as processing power (Your computer might not be up to it). If you have not dabbled in video very much I would cut my teeth on 1080 first.
2. Size – This is not a compact camera. Weighing roughly 1.6 pounds, if you add an L lens it is not a light setup. If you will be traveling with it or shooting for extended periods of time it would be wise to invest in a comfortable strap and/or bag.
3. No Bluetooth – This is only a con if you want to use Bluetooth. The 80D does not feature it. The main function of Bluetooth is to connect the camera to a mobile device like a phone with the Canon Camera Connect ap, which the 80D can still do with its built in wifi. Check it out if you haven’t, it’s pretty cool.
4. Price – Of course price is an issue. This is not a cheap camera, and there are certainly cheaper cameras out there. Part of the reason this one is so expensive is due to its more robust build quality and some other key features like the larger battery, the weather sealing, the 100% pentamirror viewfinder, the added controls, etc. A lot of this stuff might never matter to you, and hence you would be paying for more camera than you need. So please review my “other recommendations” for some less expensive options that might be just as good for you before considering the 80D.
5. Buffer – The buffer is better than lower models, but it still fills pretty fast if you shoot in full resolution raw. With the 95mbps card I use, I can squeeze out 24 shots before the buffer is full. Do the math and that is about 3 seconds before you are stuck in the card/buffer limbo. I have run into some times when I missed a shot because the buffer was full. If you need to have a lot more freedom to fire away in burst you have two options. Option 1, use jpeg. I have shot over 50 shots in a row this way, far more than I have needed. Option 2, the 7DmkII. With twin card slots, twin processors, and a HUGE buffer, it’s just not going to quit on you unless you really just don’t know how to time your shots. But, it is much more expensive. I would only suggest this to those that are very serious sport and wildlife shooters; people that are going to invest in lenses that are more expensive than a used car. If that is not you, then jpeg mode or short burst in raw is the way to go. (If you even have to ask then it isn’t you)
6. One card slot – In an age when more cameras are adding a second slot, this is becoming a con. I don’t think it is fair to take a star for this, since at the time of release it was not yet common, but I think the 90D better have it or that is going to be a star off. Why is it important? Well, with two card slots the 80D would be a better event camera, since you could use a redundant card. If you have never experienced card failure I hope you never do, but if it happens to you at a wedding, then you are toast. You won’t know until it is too late, and the day is lost. (You can actually get sued for this by the client in some states.) So if weddings are your plan, look for something with two slots, like the 5DmkIV or 7DmkII, or other brands like the Sony A7III and the Nikon D850, D810, or D500. (All much more expensive cameras) Keep in mind your Canon lenses will not work on those cameras, and even when adapted are not as ideal for auto focus as on a Canon.
Other stuff (Important info and features that are neither a pro or con)
1. Crop factor – As with all Canon APS-C cameras, this one has a 1.6x crop. For those that are not sure what that means, it means that you need to multiply the focal length of your lenses by 1.6 to see the 35mm equivalent, even EF-S lenses (it’s confusing, I know). This is mostly an issue for wide angles, since the wide view is narrowed by the crop factor. Even though this camera can use EF lenses along with EF-S, for lenses that are 35mm or wider you want to stick to EF-S lenses.
2. Know you need it – I don’t normally suggest a new camera to people that don’t yet have a solid library of lenses to back it up. Buying a new camera every time one comes out seems tempting, but for most people they haven’t even fully explored the one they have. The 80D is a pretty serious camera, coming in just below the pro models in performance and features. It cost what it does for good reasons, and I will admit it’s a cool camera. I loved mine so much, I bought a second to help cover events. But the whole reason I even bought the first one was because I was shooting more sports and wildlife and my T3i couldn’t keep up. All it took was a few sessions of missed focus and bad framing to realize what was wrong. I needed more frames per second burst and more AF points. At the time, in my price range there were only two options for what I wanted, the 80D and the 7DmkII. After playing around with both, I felt the 80D was what I needed for the money I had. If I had never shot any wildlife or sports (fast moving subjects that are hard to track) I probably would still be using my T3i with higher quality lenses. So before dropping all this money on a camera, know if there is something about its features you need to shoot what you want to shoot that your current camera doesn’t offer. Also, have fun when you do it, or else, why bother?
So, at the end of all this, I really only have one question to ask; are you convinced this is what you need? As I have said a few times here, the 80D is expensive and might be more camera than you need. When I bought the 80D, it wasn’t because it was a shiny new camera, it was because I knew it was the camera I needed. I had been shooting on a T3i for years, and it was doing just fine. But in those days I shot a lot of landscapes and product photography, so I didn’t need an overly robust camera. Once I started to shoot more sports and wildlife, my T3i just couldn’t keep up, even with an excellent lens like the EF 70-200mm F2.8 USM mounted on it. My keeper rate was abysmal, about 1 for every 50-100 shots. The 80D had what I needed; 45pt AF system and 7FPS shooting made it so that I would be able to capture those hard to capture moments more often. The customization options for the AF system made it so I had better control over my composition. The dual wheels made it faster for me to change settings on the fly. The quick buttons by the shutter made it so that I can adjust some of the more important features and barely stop shooting to do it. These are just some of the reasons for the 80D being so great, not even including the video capabilities (but I don’t really shoot video, but if you do it is fantastic, minus the 4K of course). I just want you to be sure you are not paying more than you need for a camera, since not everyone can justify so much money for a hobby. So that leads to this…
Other Recommendations (It wouldn’t be a WOFG review without suggestions!)
1. Canon Rebel SL2 (200D outside the US) – Probably the best starter DSLR on the market, the SL2 is great for its compact nature, solid features, and dual pixel AF for video as well as friendly price tag. If video is your only game, then for 550 USD the SL2 is just as good as its bigger brothers the T7i and 77D, and only falls short of the 80D due to its lack of a headphone port (but it does have a mic jack). Great for vlogging. Compared to the 80D: Not as useful for high speed shooting as the 80D, as it lacks the 45pt AF system and only does 5FPS burst with a small buffer. But if you are shooting mostly low key subjects (portraits, landscapes, real estate, etc), then you don’t need the 45 pt AF system or fast burst mode. For less than half the price, it does just as well for video (minus the headphone port), and even has a newer sensor which gives it a touch more DR at the same 24mp resolution in a much smaller body. Give the SL2 a good look before dropping so much money on a bunch of features you might not use.
2. Canon Rebel T7i – The major difference from the T7i and the 80D are as follows; the 80D has more features built into the body for faster control over your settings. It has slightly better specs for action shooting, having a max shutter of 1/8000sec and 7 FPS burst compared to 1/4000sec and 6 FPS (this will almost never matter unless you have a specific need). The 80D has weather sealing and has a stronger build overall. Otherwise they have the same 24mp resolution, same 45pt AF system, and comparable performance for general shooting. For video, the T7i lacks the headphone jack the 80D has, but otherwise is the same. If you aren’t sure if you need the 80D or the T7i, then the T7i is probably a safer bet for less money. I really feel the true advantage of the 80D over the T7i is the added controls for faster setting changes in quick situations, since everything else is pretty negligible unless you know you specifically need it (If you aren’t sure, then you probably don’t.)
3. Canon 77D – Basically the same camera as the T7i with some of the added controls of the 80D. It has a second wheel for adjusting settings, but lacks the quick buttons for focus, drive, and metering mode by the shutter release (still has ISO and AF point buttons), it is also missing the headphone jack. To be honest, I only list it here if for people that might want to shoot in manual mode mostly and can benefit from the extra wheel for adjusting settings. Otherwise this is the same as the comparison with the T7i, only the T7i cost 100 bucks less.
All that is left to do now is check out the images! Thanks for reading my review!
