    I looked at reviews of every camera out there from this price range and below. I've never owned a dslr camera or anything fancy before. I run a freelance business and I needed professional quality photos for my social media page. I didn't want to buy anything cheap that I would regret so after weeks of watching YouTube videos and reviewing cameras I found this to be my best option. I also edit video so I wanted a camera that would take excellent video and I needed nice pictures so the 24 megapixels fit what I was looking for. Long story short, I'm blown away at the quality of this camera, I'm able to keep it in auto focus mode and everything turns out so amazing that I take a picture of, it's impossible to take a bad picture. I was more than pleased with the quality of this product. I looked at the microphone and originally thought the rode videomic go would sound cheesy since it has a frequency response up to 15khz if I remember correctly, but once I hooked up the microphone I never questioned it again, it picks up great audio, sounds professional on every level. The wifi is my favorite part too, get the app for your phone and you can put pictures straight on your phone no matter where you are. This camera is the best thing ever!

    I purchased this camera for a multitude of reasons. I opted for the video creator kit specifically for a new venture with my business and doing some vlogging, product review videos, and various other projects. I was upgrading my system from a much older Canon DSLR. This camera has very fast AF which was a must for me. On top of that, the image processing chip and image sensor itself is fantastic! This camera in combination with great lenses is able to provide some of the nicest images you will see from DSLRs on the market. It certainly is not a top-end camera but it provides images that can rival them. There are certainly a few things I do not like but not enough for me to knock off stars. The menu selection wheel is a bit cumbersome but with some getting used to, it simply is not that big of a deal to me. I can see what the Canon engineers were trying to do but you can essentially do the same things by simply using the touch screen which I prefer anyway. Overall this camera is a gem and at a great price point. You can spend a lot less but not get a body that is as sturdy or reliable. The power zoom accessory takes some getting used to though. It is basically included for free in this combo and it worth trying. It adds some smooth zooming for video which is great. Again, practice with it and spend some time perfecting it and I think you will like it.

    I have been looking at purchasing a DSLR for almost a year. At this price point for me it was between the Sony A6300/6500 and the Canon 80d. To be honest both the cameras have an equal amount of pros and cons. For me the 80D felt more comfortable in my hands (even though it is a lot heavier). Also the articulating screen is awesome. The battery on the 80D lasts forever and there are a ton of affordable lenses out there as well. If you are adamant about having 4K you may want to go to Sony, but the colors and quality of the 1080 the 80D shoots is great. The 80D won’t let you down! I am glad I finally made the investment! And the video creator kit is great because not only do you save money buying the kit but you pick up the 18-135 lens which is a great all purpose lens, the powerzoom is a nifty tool and the rode mic is awesome!!

    Read and watched lots of reviews on the Canon 80D. You wont be disappointed. I'm new to DSLR shooting and yes, any lower end DSLR would've worked fine. But if you want to learn the functions and get the most out of the package, this is what you need to get. Yes, its pricey but the build quality and capabilities are amazing. Do I want to start a vlog like Casey Neistat, probably not. Do I want the option to? Yes. I want to video my 2 year old, capture moments and memories, and yes, any camera will do. Except, this does it better. I see this camera as a Semi-Pro rig, feels great, shoots great, looks great. The lens was designed for this camera. Sure you can buy a kit that has two lenses but why? This lens captures the full range. Did I mention "weather resistance" its just built better than a Rebel. Is it heavy? Sort of. Will it be a pain to carry? Maybe. I also bought the mirrorless version, the new Canon M5, its nice to carry, but doesn't "feel" as nice to shoot, not as easy to compose a shot (because its much smaller)

    I did a lot of research on digital cameras with solid video recording capabilities. This is my first non-point-&-shoot camera, so all the tech specs were a bit overwhelming. One thing I promised myself is that I wasn't going to buy a DSLR as a point-&-shooter; I needed to actually use all the bells & whistles. I've only used the camera for a couple of weeks. I took it on a wildlife cruise - along with the manual. I took a few hours to read the manual to understand what this camera could do. I then went out the next day on a great whale watching adventure and got some great shots. I absolutely love the continuous shutter feature. I ended up with lots of shots I need to delete, but I also captured "the" shot I was looking for in each instance. I still haven't taken any serious videos with it yet, but I suspect I will be pleased with the results. I've got a couple of photography books I'm going to work through to become more proficient with this camera. I'm excited I now have a tool to help me up my photo/video game.

    Amazing Camera

    I was debating between this Canon 80D or a Sony a6500 mirrorless camera and I am glad I went with the 80D. It has amazing features and the 18-135 mm lens is perfect for a beginner. I did lots of research before making my purchase, the camera does not have 4K video which might be a disadvantage for some users, but that's not a big deal for me. The camera produces great quality images. It takes time to learn but it can be a perfect tool for anyone interested in learning photography. I went with this kit because you save some money if you plan on getting a mic later on. I would recommend this camera for those who want to learn more than just the basics. Invest some more money and get this over the entry level cameras like the rebel series. Watch YouTube videos and pick up some cheap books off Amazon and you're set.

    Great crop sensor camera, poor product description

    The good: The camera itself is deserving of the 5 stars. Snappy autofocus, 18-135 lens is a great every-situation lens (could be sharper and have a lower F-stop, but that would blow this kit's price) good ergonomics, and the touch screen is a joy. In fact, the touch screen makes this lens; being able to rapidly and intuitively change settings with minimal fuss is great. The bad: At time of purchase, and at time of review, the website states "An additional battery pack ensures the Canon EOS 80D video creator kit has plenty of power". Cause of this language, I assumed this kit came with an additional battery pack, but it does not. This unit comes with only 1 battery, which is disappointing considering that a full day of filming requires several batteries.

    The camera does most everything I want, the images are large and very good. It has an articulating screen (touch screen at that), HDR in camera, multiple exposure, video, has Wi-Fi so you can remotely control most functions with your phone. The biggest disappointment is burst speed is sorely lacking and I labored over to get this with more features vs. the older 7DII. One big (HUGE) problem was there was no signature required for home delivery. I was shocked that it was sitting on the porch around 30 minutes before I got a notice that it had been delivered. I wonder who would be responsible for any theft for something that cost this much.
