Canon EOS 80D review

 

Canon's new 80D looks great on paper, and the real thing's not too shabby either

24Mp sensor resolves detail well ; Fast and effective AF system ; Excellent screen

APS-C format rather than full-frame ; Complex AF system requires time to master ; Quick Menu not customisable

Canon has created an excellent camera for enthusiast photographers that makes a worthwhile upgrade from the 70D. It's well built, with sensibly arranged controls, and has good ergonomics and an extensive feature set. Most importantly, the image quality...

Canon EOS 80D review: The mid-range master

 

If you're looking to drop a four-figure wedge of cash of a mid-range DSLR - one that'll last you for a good stretch of time - then Canon is one of the names that so often floats to the surface; the crema on the coffee, if you will. And in the 80D that...

Continuous autofocus unparalleled at this level, 100% optical finder (finally), fast performance and significant buffer, decent image quality throughout, vari-angle touchscreen (with speedy live view)

No 4K video, no second SD slot, viewfinder flare from direct light sources, off-centre 1-point AF not always perfect, no speed increase over 70D, finish looks plasticky

The Canon EOS 80D takes almost everything that was missing or not quite up to scratch in the already impressive 70D and sets it right. Save for a second SD card slot and absence of 4K video there's not a whole lot missing in this mid-range master.

Canon EOS 80D review: A solid upgrade but not much more

 

A solid set of features but the Canon EOS 80D doesn't do enough to stay ahead of the competition

Competent all-rounder ; Excellent autofocus in video capture

Sometimes overexposes high-contrast scenes in JPEG mode ; No 4K video capture ; Still image autofocus not the most reliable

Still, the Canon EOS 80D’s pedigree does count in its favour. As with the EOS 70D, this is a dependable all-rounder and, when the 70D disappears entirely, it’ll be the right Canon SLR for amateur enthusiasts.

Canon EOS 80D review

 

Imagine a camera that does all the hard work for you. Well, Canon's only gone and made one

Superb focusing in all modes ; Excellent image quality ; Wi-Fi and app features actually work ; Swivelling touchscreen and plenty of controls

Bigger than a non-DSLR (obviously) ; Pricey ; No 4K video

The 80D is the do-it-all camera that does it all for you. We're smitten

Canon EOS 80D review

 

Canon delivers a decent update to its popular prosumer action-capable camera, the EOS 70D . The 80D gets a new version of the company's Dual Pixel CMOS sensor with a faster on-sensor autofocus system, plus some minor additions. It has some notable...

The Canon EOS 80D is fast, and if you play with the settings can produce excellent photo and video quality.

The automatic white balance isn't very good, and it doesn't have a terribly broad set of features.

With better performance and photo quality than the 70D, the Canon EOS 80D is worth the upgrade, but it's got a lot of competition for the money.

Read our full review of the Canon EOS 80D - the update to the popular 70D, bringing improved image quality, faster buffer rates, an improved sensor and more.

Excellent image quality ; Improve noise performance ; Excellent focus and shutter response speeds ; Live view focus and shutter response is equally fast ; Auto White Balance options ; 3inch vari-angle touch-screen ; Larger 100% view viewfinder ;...

No auto panoramic shooting mode ; Some competitors at this price point offer quicker continuous shooting

The Canon EOS 80D is a welcome update to the EOS 70D, and offers some of the features the original camera was lacking, with a headphone socket, improved focus system, and larger optical viewfinder. As part of the Canon EOS system, there is access to an...

If you are into nature and sports photography and can't stomach the price of Canon's EOS 7D Mark 2, the Canon EOS 80D is a very good compromise.
