    Will the 80D's 45 pt focus array work in the Sports Mode or is it just single pt?   (4 Answers)

    My old T3i only had a single focus point when using the Sports mode; hopefully the 80D uses its full 45 point focus array in Sports mode... True or False... Thanx, Mark

        This helped me out a lot with which camera I wanted to choose for my price range. You can put in almost any Canon or Nikon to compare. http://www.imaging-resource.com/cameras/canon/70d/vs/canon/80d/

            Hey you can send the images wirelessly or pop out the memory card. I highly recommend buying a camera bag and maybe even tripod. It depends how much you are willing to spend. There are a bunch of great lenses and a flash would be nice to have. I'm sure if you look hard enough around your house you will find the Micro USB cable you need for the camera.

          What is the big difference between the 80d and 70d because the only thing i see is like it's $200 more...   (3 Answers)

            Answer

            The 80D has 45 All cross type focus points whereas the 70D has only 19, which means its easy to select an object to focus on if you're shooting quickly. The 80D has a 24MP newer sensor. This makes it better in low-light and has better dynamic range. The viewfinder is 100% coverage in the 80D so what you see through the viewfinder or life mode is exactly what you get in photo/video mode. The 70D has only 98% coverage so you have to guess what will be in those borders. The 80D has a headphone jack for better audio quality/monitoring in video mode. (I'm not sure if that's important to you) The 80D has better weather sealing to combat the elements. It has NFC so you can send photos right to your camera after you shoot and there is a timelapse feature built into the camera. I would say it's worth it.

              You can use the Portrait or Kids option settings. The manual will walk you through the procedure.

              No, the 80D is not a full frame camera. It has an APS-C sensor in it.

              Answer

              I would say ANY camera struggles in low light. The 80D does a remarkable job in low light. It really depends on the lens. Nikon appears to handle higher ISOs better but I can get great low light shots at 1600-3200 using the kit lens.
