Photographer and reviewer Dustin Abbott posted another one of his comprehensive reviews, this time it’s the Canon EOS 80D that gets scrutinized. And it ain’t no paper tiger, according to the reviewer.
In the conclusion he writes:
While there were a number of people that looked at the announcement of the 80D and said, “yawn”, I have yet to hear from anyone who has used the camera who didn’t love it. It is more camera in the field than it is on paper, and the key word that I and others are using of it is versatility. It just seems to be pretty much good at everything. It handles well, has great image quality, and is generally a joy to shoot with. The upgraded AF system makes it a viable competitor to the EOS 7D Mark II, though that camera should probably still be the ultimate choice for sports or wildlife shooters. But the Canon EOS 80D is the jack of all trades, good enough at everything to make many owners very happy.
You can watch the 17 minutes video-review below, or go for the written review (many sample pics).
There is a very good EOS 80D deal going on right now on eBay, check it out if you are interested.
The next video is particularly interesting. It analyses and compares the EOS 80D’s ISO extension and latitude, something we already knew the 80D was doing very good.
The video below compares the EOS 80D with the EOS 70D to see if the moire problem has been solved.
