    Artists looking to turn their passion into popular online videos or to show the world their unique perspective through social networks now have a new tool available to them that helps them tear down creative barriers and produce dynamic visual content for both still and video. Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to introduce the new Canon EOS 80D Digital SLR camera, featuring an new 45-point AF system1, 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor for crisp images with fine detail. For the budding videographer or online video star, the camera features Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus (DAF) technology coupled with an intuitive touchscreen capability for easy focusing when shooting video.

    Canon is also introducing a new EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens optimized for high-speed autofocusing when shooting stills and quiet and smooth zoom when shooting video. The lens is also compatible with Canon’s new Power Zoom Adapter for smooth cinematic ‘pulls’ when changing focal length on a subject, and responsive adjustments at the push of a button for stills or video.

    Updated features in Canon EOS 80D DSLR Camera include:

    • New 45-point all cross-type AF system
    • Intelligent Viewfinder with approximately 100% viewfinder coverage
    • Newly Developed 24.2 Megapixel (APS-C) CMOS sensor
    • DIGIC 6 image processor for enhanced image quality
    • Improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF for smooth, fast and accurate autofocus with video and stills
    • Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC capability for easy transfer of images and movies to compatible mobile devices
    • 1080/60p Full HD video to capture brilliant results in MP4 format for easy movie sharing on select social networking sites
    • Vari-angle Touch Screen 3.0-inch Clear View LCD II monitor enables flexible positioning and clear viewing even outdoors

    “In today’s world, where everyone is a photographer or videographer, we at Canon are looking to provide the tools and features that help creative-minded people stand out from the pack and get noticed. The right technology cannot make someone creative, but it will help bring a creative vision to life,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The right combination of camera and lens helps those with a vision stand out and be recognized. We look forward to seeing what this new generation of passionate artists will create with these new tools.”

    New AF System and Dual Pixel CMOS AF

    The 45-point all cross-type viewfinder AF system in the new Canon EOS 80D DSLR camera, compared to 19-points in the Canon EOS 70D DSLR camera, is now wider both horizontally and vertically for easier compositions with off-center subjects. Low light AF performance has been improved all the way down to EV-3 at the center point to achieve sharp results even in extreme low-light situations. The camera’s AI (Artificial Intelligence) Servo AF II autofocusing system utilizes color tracking with a 7,560-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor that automatically detects skin tone and colors to enhance tracking sensitivity, even with moving subjects that are rapidly changing pace or direction. Enhancing the ease-of-use of the new AF system is the Canon EOS 80D’s new Intelligent Viewfinder which features approximately 100% viewfinder coverage. The full coverage helps prevent photographers from missing objects that are in the corners of the scene, which can reduce the need to crop images later on.

    Dual Pixel CMOS AF employs a new Canon CMOS sensor with which all of the effective pixels are able to perform both still imaging and phase-detection AF simultaneously to achieve dramatically improved AF performance during Live View and video shooting. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology in the Canon EOS 80D camera features enhanced tracking sensitivity and is compatible with the full line of Canon EF Series lenses, including the new Canon EF-S18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM standard zoom lens.

    High-Quality Still and Video Image Performance

    Featuring a new 24.2 megapixel APS-C Canon CMOS sensor and Canon’s superb DIGIC 6 Image Processor, as well as an improved still image ISO range of 100–16000 (Video ISO range 100–12800, both expandable to 25600), the Canon EOS 80D DSLR camera is capable of producing sharp, detailed images and videos even in low-light conditions. High-speed continuous shooting up to seven frames per second (fps) combined with the 45-point all cross-type AF allows photographers to capture fast moving subjects easily and accurately, while the camera’s Scene Intelligent Auto Mode delivers optimized photos and offers outstanding scene detection for amazing results even when shooting in low light. HDR mode provides creative filter effects, such as natural, art standard, art bold, art vivid and art embossed. For added convenience, the Canon EOS 80D camera features Anti-Flicker shooting, similar to that found in the EOS 7D Mark II DSLR camera. Anti-Flicker shooting produces consistently high-quality results even when shooting in areas with fluorescent lighting or other flickering light sources by detecting the flicker cycle of the light source and shooting when brightness is near its peak.

    When users select the EOS Movie mode, the Canon EOS 80D DSLR camera offers the ability to shoot in 1080p Full HD video up to 60 fps, compared to 30 fps in the Canon EOS 70D, in MP4 format and in either ALL-I or IPB compression modes with optional embedded time code. For expanded creativity the Canon EOS 80D DSLR camera features HDR movie and Time-Lapse movie modes and Movie creative filters like fantasy, old movie, memory, dramatic monochrome and miniature. Movie Servo AF custom settings allow users to speed up or slow down focusing speeds, enhancing creativity and artistic expression. For added flexibility, the Canon EOS 80D digital SLR camera also features a built-in headphone jack, a built-in stereo microphone with manual audio level adjustment, and an additional stereo microphone jack.

    Mostly same old same old from Canon?

  • Because everybody has Dual Pixel AF, Anti-Flicker, etc.... oh wait, my GH4 certainly doesn't...

  • A few more pixels, a lot more AF points, 100% vs 98% viewfinder. As Canon upgrades go, it's a lot. As others go, about normal.

  • The Dual Pixel AF is a great shot grabber. Depending on which sensor they're using it could be an excellent B Cam.

  • the accompanying powerzoom adapter for the , also accompanying, new 18-135mm looks to be an interesting solution

  • What is anti flicker? Cant find any info on it. I assume it has something to do with fluorescents?

  • @joethepro Yes, anti-flicker looks for lighting that changes at a speed that would cause a problem (you get an in-viewfinder warning) and if you enable it will take the exposure at a consistent point in the light cycling.

  • I think this camera will sell like Hot Cakes..

  • I think this camera will sell like Hot Cakes..

    Seriously? :-)

    Add to this that Canon and Nikon now hold the price as much as they can.

  • @Vitaliy_Kiselev People will buy first because of the name, second for that Dual Pixel AF but don't worry I won't be buying one.

  • Did the 70D sell like hotcakes because of dual pixel AF? The feature isn't exactly new on the 80D.

  • It was probably very inexpensive for them to design and manufacture since it is so similar to the 70D. Makes business sense to get a new model out at low cost. But they cant keep this up much longer before people start moving away in larger numbers.
