The EOS 80D’s 24.2MP, APS-C CMOS sensor realizes high resolution photo quality, where landscapes and still life shots are rendered with even greater detail, and skin tones and textures with even better precision. The tremendous volume of data generated undergoes high speed processing via the DIGIC 6 processor, enabling speeds of up to 7.0fps for photos (continuous shooting) and Full HD 60p/50p for movies to be achieved. ISO speed has also been enhanced up to a normal ISO of 16000 (12800 during movie shooting), and an expanded ISO of up to ISO 25600, allowing the capture of beautiful shots at fast shutter speeds, even in low light conditions. The focusing brightness range for viewfinder shooting has been increased up to EV -3, allowing improved AF performance in extremely low light scenes.
The AF sensor covers a large portion of the viewfinder and consists of 45 selectable points, all of which are cross-type. It enables precise AF tracking, even during 7.0fps high speed continuous shooting. 27 of the points can be used to focus with f/8, which means carrying out AF will be a pleasant experience even when using an extender. Combined with the 7,560-pixel RGB + IR metering system which tracks and detects colour, not only is the precision of the Scene Detection System improved and overall exposure clarity enhanced, you can also expect even more accurate focus on human subjects. Supplementing the APS-C camera is its viewfinder, which not only has approximately 100% coverage but also comes equipped with Intelligent Viewfinder. Thanks to the display of a variety of shooting information such as the electronic level, and a multiple aspect ratio shooting image area (including 1:1), viewfinder shooting is easier and more convenient than ever.
Remarkably fast AF during Live View shooting is possible due to the enhanced Dual Pixel CMOS AF, now compatible with all EF/EF-S lenses and extenders*. As Servo AF is also supported during Live View shooting, you can take continuous shots of up to 5.0fps even while carrying out AF subject tracking. Full HD 60p/50p movie shooting is available, and you can film not only Time-lapse movies, but also HDR movies. In other words, you can capture beautiful scenes even in strong backlight conditions with high brightness contrast. There is also a digital zoom feature as well as new Creative filters for movie shooting. The Vari-angle LCD screen makes shooting from any position possible, and the smooth touchscreen operation allow you to shoot both stills and movies with ease.
