Carl Garrard of Photographic Central is a photographer who does reviews from a user’s point of view. This time we feature his Canon EOS 80D review, a Canon mid-range DSLR announced in 2016 which still is one of the most powerful APS-C gear Canon has in offer (I consider the EOS 80D to be more advanced than the EOS 7D Mark II, despite the latter being more pro-oriented).
From Carl’s conclusion:
[…] the 80D was one of Canon’s answers to criticism of their in house semi conductor division, and I believe that most users who purchase or use the 80D will think so too. Canon have a reputation for taking well calculated, progressive steps in designing their cameras. If Canon are good at one thing, it’s that they do not abandon or alienate their user base that they have earned over the years. Canon cannot be everything to everyone, and no camera company can. But they do appeal to the widest range of photographers more than any other company for a reason.
Canon’s EOS 80D represents an excellent overall value for its user base, and makes a statement about Canon’s dedication to them. For those not wanting pro level gear, the 80D may be a very good choice as an overall device that can handle a wide range of tasks and do them remarkably well in most circumstances. While the 80D isn’t a personal favorite of mine to use, I found it to be well worthy of recommending to other readers who use DLRS here because of its incredible versatility, well rounded feature set, and competent capability overall.
It may not be the best performer in any single category, but as a whole, its hard to find another camera in its price range that would be more pleasant and capable to use. And that’s the key really, real life use. When shopping for a camera you can compare specs all day, but until you use it, you won’t know if you really like it or not. Pick one up and try it out for yourself, if you are in the market. Read Carl Garrard’s review…
As a happy owner of an EOS 80D (the camera I use most) I certainly agree.
