EOS 80D launches:
new levels of creativity for stills and video
Canon has launched the EOS 80D – a fully equipped DSLR providing enthusiasts with all they need at their fingertips to propel their photography and video skills...
Ideal for enthusiasts and moviemakers who love experimenting with different genres, and styles, the camera adapts to what you want to shoot with exceptional speed and ease. Combining leading imaging technologies – including a new 24.2 Megapixel CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 6 processor – and a new 45 all cross-type point AF system and fast responsive 7 fps maximum continuous shooting rate, the EOS 80D is a versatile camera that inspires you to learn new skills for capturing striking stills, or Full HD movies.
New Nano USM technology
Canon is also unveiling a new versatile EF-S18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens with new ultrasonic motor (Nano USM), alongside an optional power zoom adapter, for smooth movie zoom control with the option to control it via WiFi*. The new lens enables fast AF for stills, plus allows smooth and quiet autofocus for movies, making it a great hybrid lens for both applications.
Nano USM is a newly-developed lens drive system that combines the quiet smoothness of an STM (Stepping Motor) system that’s great for shooting movies, with the speed of the Canon Ring-type USM (Ultrasonic Motor) system that’s ideal for sports and action photography. The Nano USM unit comprises an elastic metal body and a ceramic voltage element. By changing the frequency and phase of the high-frequency voltage applied to the ceramic voltage element, drive control of rotational direction and speed is achieved. In perfect combination, frequency control and phase control provide focus lens drive with a control algorithm that’s perfectly suited to both still image and movie shooting.
Excel in all areas of photography and video
Whatever subject you’re looking to explore at the next level – from sports, to wildlife, or action – the EOS 80D excels in capturing everything with responsiveness and intricate detail. The new sensor provides stunning clarity and the freedom to crop in, while the new 45 all cross-type point AF system and 7 fps drive system with reduced vibration can freeze the action with ultimate precision and image quality, making it ideal for capturing sports and following wildlife. For pin-point focusing or wide-area tracking, the AF points are individually selectable or grouped into areas, giving you greater control over composition regardless of where your subject is in the frame. When shooting with lens combinations with narrow apertures the 27 f/8 compatible AF points offer focus in extreme situations.
Designed to shoot in a range of lighting conditions, the EOS 80D provides a native ISO 100-16,000 range, expandable to ISO 25,600, and the AF system works down to light levels as low as -3EV (moonlight). The 7560-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor measures visible light and invisible infra-red light, giving accurate exposures, while Flicker Detection delivers consistent exposure under flickering artificial lights, with the new White Priority setting enabling you to reduce the appearance of warmer colour tones.
A camera that adapts with you
The EOS 80D has been meticulously crafted to provide photographers with everything they need at their fingertips. The instinctiveness of the EOS 80D’s design means you can easily change settings, with conveniently-placed controls giving you access to the most commonly used modes and settings. The Intelligent Viewfinder displays approximately 100% of the frame, as well as the current settings – you can also quickly switch to the 7.7cm (3.0”) Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touch screen, ideal for movie shooting, Live View mode, or accessing menu functions quickly.
Become the videographer you aspire to be
Whether it’s a travel vlog, or cinematic style movie you’re looking to create, the EOS 80D offers full flexibility in Full HD movie shooting. Enthusiasts and newcomers alike can achieve accurate auto focus and smooth focus tracking thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology which can be easily adjusted with AF tracking sensitivity and AF speed via the menu, giving you greater control over the pace and responsiveness of the AF to suit the style of your movie.
Serious videographers can be confident footage will achieve a professional looking result, with the ability to shoot Full HD movies at 60p in MP4 format – perfect for slowing down the action while still having full control over focus thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF. The EOS 80D includes both headphone and microphone inputs, allowing you to capture and have full control over audio during a shoot. Even more effects can also be achieved in-camera with the addition of HDR, Dream, Memory, Dramatic B&W and Old Movie styles.
Easily connect, shoot remotely and share your work
Further enhancing the photographic possibilities of the EOS 80D you can remotely shoot stills or movies using your Smartphone or Tablet device* by using Canon’s Camera Connect app. Alternatively photographers can connect the EOS 80D from a PC without the need for a home WiFi router. For sharing, EOS 80D’s WiFi and Dynamic NFC connectivity makes it simple to connect and download full resolution Jpegs to your smart device*. You can also archive easily to Canon’s Connect Station CS100, allowing you to quickly and easily save, view and share your photos and movies from one single accessible location.
