Successor to the EOS 70D (released in August 2013), the EOS 80D is equipped with a newly developed APS-C-size approximately 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 6 image processor, enabling a maximum standard ISO of 16000 (ISO 12800 when shooting movies) while delivering high image quality capable of expressing the subtle textures and three dimensionality of subjects. The camera supports full-fledged viewfinder shooting through such features as an optical viewfinder offering approximately 100% coverage*1 for enhanced image-composition ease, and 45-point all cross-type AF*2 for improved autofocusing accuracy. Additionally, further capitalizing on the benefits offered by SLR cameras, the 80D realizes a fast continuous shooting speed of up to approximately seven frames per second.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF, an autofocus technology in which each effective pixel on the CMOS sensor is able to perform both phase-difference autofocusing and imaging functions, provides smooth AF performance with exceptional subject-tracking capabilities during movie shooting. Contributing to expanded movie-shooting freedom, the EOS 80D also lets users take advantage of Dual Pixel CMOS AF when recording Full HD 60p movies.

Supporting Wi-Fi and NFC (Near Field Communication)*3 connectivity, the EOS 80D not only enables the transfer of still images and movies to and from compatible cameras, but also supports remote shooting and file transfer via a smartphone, tablet or other mobile device*4.

*1 When aspect ratio is set at 3:2.
*2 Depending on the attached lens and aspect ratio setting, the numbers of AF points, cross-type AF points and Dual cross-type AF points will change.
*3 An ISO-defined international wireless communication standard.
*4 Requires Canon Camera Connect app, available for download for free from the App Store and Google Play.
