Canon EOS 80D Review (an All-rounder That’s Very Easy To Like, Photography Blog)

  • Built-In Wi-Fi awith NFC
  • RGB+IR 7560-Pixel Metering Sensor

Photography Blog posted their comprehensive Canon EOS 80D review. The EOS 80D is getting pretty good press, and here is one more example.

In the conclusion they write:

The new 24 megapixel CMOS sensor produces virtually no visible noise at all from ISO 100 all the way up to ISO 1600, with even the three faster settings of 3200-12800 producing perfectly usable images (although 25600 is best reserved for emergency use). All other image quality aspects are up to Canon’s usual high standards, so top marks go to the 80D in this department. Even the new 18-135mm kit lens is worth considering if you’ve not yet bought into the Canon system.

So while rival cameras may offer better image quality, or better specifications, faster burst modes, or smaller and lighter bodies, the new Canon EOS 80D is a very well-rounded camera that will satisfy most users needs most of the time. That may sound like damning the 80D with faint praise, but in a market where new cameras often seem to excel in one area above others, the versatile and intuitive EOS 80D is an all-rounder that’s very easy to like. Read the review…
