Canon EOS 80D vs 70D: Is It Worth The Upgrade?

Canon announced the new EOS 80D DSLR camera (the successor to the 70D), G7 X Mark II, EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens and a couple cool new accessories.

Featuring a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor, the Canon EOS 80D DSLR is capable of capturing high-resolution images at up to 7 fps and Full HD 1080p60 video, both with reduced noise and high sensitivity up to an expanded ISO 25600 for working in difficult lighting conditions. When working with the optical viewfinder, an apt 45-point all cross-type AF system affords fast performance in a range of lighting conditions for tracking moving subjects and working in low light, while the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system benefits live view shooting and movie recording by providing a smooth, natural focusing quality akin to the way a camcorder acquires focus.

Compared to 70D, the updated features in Canon EOS 80D DSLR Camera include:

  • New 45-point all cross-type AF system
  • Intelligent Viewfinder with approximately 100% viewfinder coverage
  • Newly Developed 24.2 Megapixel (APS-C) CMOS sensor
  • DIGIC 6 image processor for enhanced image quality
  • Improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF for smooth, fast and accurate autofocus with video and stills
  • Built-in Wi-Fi®2 and NFCTM2 capability for easy transfer of images and movies to compatible mobile devices
  • 1080/60p Full HD video to capture brilliant results in MP4 format for easy movie sharing on select social networking sites
  • Vari-angle Touch Screen 3.0-inch Clear View LCD II monitor enables flexible positioning and clear viewing even outdoors

And, Caleb Wojcik posted a video review of Canon EOS 80D vs 70D. Many people think it is super helpful! So I share this video here, hope it is helpful for you!
