Photographic authority DPReview posted their exhaustive review of Canon’s new mid-level, enthusiast-oriented EOS 80D. As seen before, Canon developed a new sensor tech with much better dynamic range than previous sensors. In fact, DPReview states that the EOS 80D has the best raw dynamic range of any APS-C Canon camera.

From the conclusion:

As an upgrade from the 70D, there’s a lot to like about the 80D, but possibly not enough to warrant trading up, unless you’re interested in video. however if you’re considering upgrading from a Rebel camera, the 80D is an excellent and natural progression in Canon’s DSLR family. And if you’re considering the 80D against the 7D Mark II, the choice is less clear and mostly boils down to what you value more, a better AF system and AF ergonomics (in the 7D Mark II), or better dynamic range,  an articulating touchscreen, and that impressive Dual Pixel AF system.


A very well-rounded camera, the 80D’s main appeal centers around ease-of-use. It is well-constructed, offers ample control points, and an easy-to-use design. Its image quality lags slightly behind the best cameras in this class (the main reason it did not earn our highest award), but overall it’s still extremely competitive. We’re very encouraged to note that the 80D offers the best raw dynamic range of any APS-C Canon camera to date. Read the review…

The Canon EOS 80D is now shipping everywhere.
