Focus with Precision.
The EOS 80D camera features an impressive 45-point all cross-type AF system1 that provides high-speed, highly precise AF in virtually any kind of light. To help ensure photographers don't miss their shot, an Intelligent Viewfinder with approximately 100% coverage provides a clear view and comprehensive image data. Improvements like a powerful 24.2 Megapixel (APS-C) CMOS sensor and Dual Pixel CMOS AF for Live View shooting enhance performance across the board. Complementing the EOS 80D's advanced operation are built-in wireless connectivity and Full HD 60p movies that can be saved as MP4s for easy sharing.
45-point AF System1
The EOS 80D camera has a wide-area, 45-point, all cross-type AF system1. Excellent in dim light, it has improved low luminance performance to EV -3 and is compatible with most EF lenses (lenses with maximum apertures of f/8 or higher, and some lenses with extenders attached may operate at a maximum of 27 points). It also features 4 AF area selection modes, including user-selectable Single-point AF, Zone AF, Large Zone AF and 45-point AF auto selection.
The EOS 80D camera’s Intelligent Viewfinder provides a bright and comprehensive view. Approximately 100% coverage means there’s virtually no guesswork when composing, and with all settings available at a glance, the Intelligent Viewfinder helps photographers keep their eye on their subject to capture the image at the right instant. The Intelligent Viewfinder displays a variety of information including AF points, AF mode and a grid display, all of which can be hidden for manual focus or subject observation.
24.2 MP (APS-C) CMOS Sensor
The EOS 80D camera features a 24.2 Megapixel (APS-C) CMOS sensor that captures high-resolution images and features refined individual pixels that enable high ISO speeds of 16000 for still photographs (expandable to 25600) and 12800 for movies (expandable to 16000, 25600). Equipped with high resolution and high sensitivity, the sensor works with the camera’s DIGIC 6 Image Processor to enable Dual Pixel CMOS AF during Live View operation, and while capturing both Full HD 60p and Full HD HDR movies.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF
Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF delivers fast, smooth and accurate AF and tracking during Live View and movie shooting. Equipped with phase-difference detection autofocus, it provides virtually no loss in image quality with extended coverage across approximately 80% of the image plane.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF excels with video shooting, helping to ensure focus is achieved naturally and precisely, even when switching between subjects. Combined with the predictive power of Movie Servo AF, subjects in motion are smoothly tracked.
Built-in Wi-Fi2 Connectivity
Built-in Wi-Fi2 connectivity means exposure settings can be operated wirelessly using a compatible smartphone2 with the free Canon Camera Connect app2. Shoot remotely, review images and easily transfer and save images directly from the camera to a smartphone. DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatibility and Local Area Network (LAN) connectivity means easy sharing and transfer. Upload to CANON iMAGE GATEWAY4 for quick sharing on social networking sites, and print photos on a wireless PictBridge-certified printer without needing a PC.
Built-in NFC3 Connectivity
Built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) helps provide a virtually seamless connection to numerous compatible Android smartphones3, and the Canon Connect Station CS100. To transfer your photos and videos, simply tap the EOS 80D camera to the Connect Station CS100. With the Connect Station CS100, you can store, view and organize all of your photos and videos from just one device.
Full HD 60p
It’s easy to capture and share high-definition, sharp and beautifully exposed movies. Dual Pixel CMOS AF provides fast focus, and Movie Servo AF tracking helps maintain focus in the action. The Vari-angle Touchscreen monitor makes composing easy, while Creative Filters and a Video Snapshot feature encourage experimentation. Both MOV and MP4 formats are supported for fast and easy sharing. Manual volume recording control, digital zooming and a headphone terminal add to the impressive collection of high-end moviemaking features.
Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD
A Vari-angle Touchscreen 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor II helps capture videos and stills at a variety of angles, with up to 270° of vertical rotation and up to 175° of horizontal rotation. It delivers intuitive touch panel operation, easy setting access and Touch AF. Displaying fine detail (at approximately 1.04 million dots), this screen can be ideal for composing and reviewing images. Smudge-resistant coating helps minimize fingerprints and maintain a clear image display, even in bright light.

When working with the optical viewfinder, an apt 45-point all cross-type AF system affords fast performance in a range of lighting conditions for tracking moving subjects and working in low light, while the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system benefits live view shooting and movie recording by providing a smooth, natural focusing quality akin to the way a camcorder acquires focus. Touch-to-focus is availed by the large 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD, which also sports a swiveling vari-angle design for working from high and low angles with ease.
Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows you to pair mobile devices with the camera to wirelessly transfer files for sharing your photos and movies online. More than just a well-connected DSLR, the 80D is equally matched in imaging versatility due to its inclusion of multimedia feature-sets for stills shooting and movie recording
