Canon EOS 80 d – Quick, Easy & Creative

Canon updates its entusiastsortiment with the APS-C sensor, unleash your creativity. Quick auto focus, creative options and an improvement for those who love to film is the stuff that makes Canon EOS 80 d.

Depending on how to photograph so you choose is usually a suitable camera. Usually it is pretty easy to decide if you want to have a camera in the entry-level segment or something more advanced, or the same thing if you want a professional model or not. It’s the middle segment that is the hard part, because generally a mediation between the two extremes.

Here, I think Canon has managed quite well with the balance of what they want to offer with its new EOS 80 d, which has some exciting new features that can also appeal to a broad audience.

Resolution of 80 d is 24.2 megapixels and has received an ISO range of 100-25600 ISO, which also means that you have the ability to take pictures in low light, down to-3 EV according to Canon themselves. Also the autofocus has been updated, as well as some other things that I am going in to, and is therefore of tipping a little against the Canon EOS 7 d Mark II, which is good.

Controls and use

The design of the 65 h follows the classical Canon-look with all that implies: good grip, smart controls and the possibility to reach all important controls with thumbs. Just 80 d provides the user with many buttons to choose from, and also a great opportunity for you as a photographer to set what to do.

The quality of the camera body feels great and it is easy to understand how everything works even for those who are not quite familiar with – even if it’s just a lot of buttons and controls. Some of the buttons, however, can come across as a bit pilliga and small, primarily at the top of the camera. Spin the wheel on the back feels really not bad, but also not so quality, even if it does its job.

To help see the different scene selections on the screen explains what the result is and how to set up to get a specific picture style. There are some settings to make, among other things, how hard a selected filter should be. That way, you still have control over the default. In General, it is easy for everyone to use Canon EOS 80 d. Photographing is going smoothly, thanks to the touch-sensitive screen of 3 inches, which is also Tiltable. The resolution is 1.04 million pixels and screen has a clear and bright picture.

To angle it is really good if you like to use it to adjust the camera settings – by holding your hand around the screen and tap with your thumb, you can simply tap on the various icons without having to dig down yourself in various menus. In addition, you can turn the screen and press it against the body if you do not want it to stand out.

Generally, Canon has taken advantage of the possibilities of using the touchscreen in an efficient way and taken advantage of it even to surf around in the camera’s menu system.

For the filmmaker

Canon EOS 80 d feels, as I previously explained, that a really wide camera. One of the reasons for this is that the screen is so useful when shooting video. Canon 70 d which also had the then-new Dual pixel technology meant that the autofocus could be adjusted silently and smoothly when shooting video.

The same applies, of course, with 80 d – but with the addition that it now can set additional settings for the auto focus will react, whether it will be soft and slow or faster. You can set up to ten different speeds for the focus, which affects your movies in a positive light. Control sheet is superior and you can simply tap on the screen to adjust the fokusens depth, which is ideal if you want to refocus while you are recording video.

You can then switch around the screen to see himself when recording, can also be useful. In addition, 80 d connectors for connection of both microphone, headphone and HDMI out – as well as remote and control via the app via Wi-Fi.

On the screen, you can also set the camera settings when it is time to film, and you get a peachy control on everything before it’s time to start.

65 h also has an HDR function for video as saves the information in the brightest parties in the picture by taking two different images – a normal and an underexposed image box. By the filming at 50 images per second with every other underexposed, the end result a video at 25 frames per second.

The result is really good, and the function is useful in some situations.

I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by the whole video-the functionality of the camera when I tested it. Really fun!

For those who want to develop their photography further as Canon has also released a motorized zoom, powerzoom adapter PZ-E1 as with compatible lenses (like the new version of the lens EF-S 18-135 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM) ensures that you get a soft and stable zooming while filming. Unfortunately, we have not tested it fully, more than at the press conference. What we can say from that is that it clearly is useful if you want to do more serious filming with zoom.


The new version of the EF-S 18-135 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM has a new Nano USM technology from Canon. At large means the lens becomes faster, more accurate and quieter. And in fact, so also is the case. The sound when the lens work is non-existent, but it is something that we also become accustomed since the previous with new focus technology from all manufacturers.

What is the coolest here is rather than how exact and fast Nano USM lenses look like. When I am focuses on a person in the foreground and then focuses on a person in the background, so not only does it feel as if the camera directly, you can find the right and ask about focus – it also!

It’s hard not to be impressed by how Canon have managed to improve the autofocus, how well it works and that it comes in a model like this.

The camera focuses even in low-light conditions down to-3 EV, and the camera find focus in this efficient light. To this we can add the autofokusmöjligheter I mentioned before under the piece of video.

Otherwise, the camera is quick and fast jobbad even when shooting fast objects. The camera has a many of its AF points spread over a large surface which increases the chances to get sharp pictures of moving objects.

In addition, 65 h a flicker reduction from fluorescent lamps in an ice rink, as well as the whole of which 45 AF points is a cruciform 27 can focus with the lens, the aperture 8, for example, with a teleconverter. In this way, you can now get working autofocus with lenses that do not cost a fortune – together with a 2 x teleconverter.

Image quality

Canon EOS 80 d compared to its predecessor, 70 d, means an improvement of around one step regarding dynamic range at lowest ISO value.

Resolution of 80 d is 24 Megapixels, an improvement from its predecessor, with 20 percent. This gives a little more leeway regarding origin, but also the opportunities to take photos in low light, because the noise is reduced when comparing images taken at the same time, in the same physical size.

Video recorded in 1080 p at 60 or 50 fps in h.264 and get the same quality as the one we find in its predecessor, the Canon EOD 70 d, which is good.


There is no doubt that Canon succeeded in really well with their EOS 80 d. The features are many, and the opportunities are great for both the beginner and the experienced.

There are many keys to familiarize themselves with, but Canon has given you as a photographer the possibility to set up many things to make the camera to your.

Films you so have 80 d many great features to offer, both in terms of inputs for microphone and headphones, but also functions as the tilting touch screen has to offer.

Canon EOS 80 d is an all-around camera suitable for a wide audience, that lets you grow and help you along the way when it comes to creativity.Really suits the camera all, so if you are looking for a camera that grow in that have exciting features and video properties so it can definitely be worth checking out if Canon EOS 80 d is the one for you.
