Canon EOS 80D features NFC (and WiFi)

EOS 80D

Thanks to a comment by reader John, we know that the Canon EOS 80D will feature NFC.

We know that NFC will be featured on the EOS 80D because there is a Canon support page that explicitly mentions the EOS 80D in a solution-flow about why the EOS 80D does not connect to a computer.

An EOS 80D announcement is likely, since it leaked yesterday.

After yesterday’s leak we know that Canon may soon announce the EOS 80D, along with the Powershot G7X Mark II and the Powershot SX720 HS.

There is no more reason not to think the EOS 80D will soon be announced. The EOS 80D is mentioned on a Canon support page about cameras and lenses compatible with the Lens Aberration Correction feature of Digital Photo Professional Ver. 4.x (thanks for the tip).

So far the only somewhat reliable specs I have for the EOS 80D are:

  • 28MP
  • New AF system

All Canon EOS 80D rumors.

Canon Powershot G7X Mark II And SX720 HS Specs Leaked, And EOS 80D Announcement Suggestion [CW4/CW3]

Specifications for two upcoming Canon Powershot cameras leaked at Digicame-Info, the Powershot G7X Mark II, which replaces the popular Powershot G7 X, and the Powershot SX720 HS, replacement for the Powershot SX710 HS.

There is also a suggestion that Canon may indeed soon announce the EOS 80D (at CP+?). I always wrote that the EOS 80D will come in Summer; I might have been wrong.

Powershot G7X Mark II specs

  • DIGIC7 processor

  • Image Stabilizer (IS) equipped.

  • 40 times optical zoom

  • 3.0 inches 922,000-dot LCD monitor

No specs for the EOS 80D leaked. I am somewhat puzzled about a February announcement for the EOS 80D. In any case, stay tuned since we will soon know more.
