Canon EOS 80D SLR Camera Test Canon, which has always been confident in the SLR market, has further strengthened its position by releasing another very successful model, the EOS 80D. And although the novelty does not have any revolutionary or breakthrough technologies, its main advantage is a balanced set of characteristics and qualities. In short, a successful semi-professional camera. The new image sensor allows you to work with high ISO up to 6400 units and at the same time provides good opportunities for drawing shadows and highlights from a raw file. The autofocus system has been improved in all respects: 45 points in the viewfinder, Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology in Live View and when shooting video. Burst speed and buffer size are consistent with the class of the camera. The photographer has the right to count on a series of more than two dozen pictures at a speed of 7 frames per second when shooting in RAW. If you shoot in JPEG, then the volume of a continuous series easily exceeds one hundred frames. Ergonomics The EOS 80D is a good compromise between size and convenience. The camera does not take up much space compared to full-frame counterparts, but it is comfortable to shoot. There are many controls, their location is thought out. Many buttons are configurable. However, it’s convenient to control the camera using the touch interface. The EOS 80D's swivel touchscreen display deserves special praise. Video recording is possible in Full HD resolution up to 50/60 frames per second. The videographer offers excellent autofocus, manual exposure control, an input for headphones and a microphone. Finally, to communicate with other devices, whether it’s a smartphone or printer, Wi-Fi and NFC are used. Everything is in the spirit of the times. Are there any downsides to this camera? Perhaps I would like to have a larger buffer size and support for fast SD UHS-II flash drives. It would be nice to have a built-in GPS. Autofocus does not have subtle settings, as in more advanced models. But let's be honest: this is a semi-professional camera, and you should not demand from him the capabilities of a professional DSLR.
