    Best All-Around Camera...Period

    There has been much said on this camera and on this series. I will add my brief thoughts: To begin with this camera is sharp. Don't believe all of the critics out there. It is not as CRISP as some cameras but it is quite sharp. Lenses make a lot of differences, so whatever you do, do not skimp on your lens. If you don't this camera will take advantage of what you attach to it and deliver fantastic results. My first outing was in Colorado on a nature hike/shoot. I was shooting with the standard lens that came with this bundle (24-135mm USM) and I found it to be more than capable of capturing exactly what I wanted in a walkabout lens. It was clean and easy to use. For the first few days I kept it in automatic and got fantastic picture and video results. Within a few days I was ready to go manual and again this camera did not disappoint. I did a little research online and found some great videos and suggestions on setup which made it quick and easy for me to get along with manual mode even though I am merely an enthusiast. Again the pictures turned out great and sharp. My next step was to take pictures at a wedding. Again I am no pro, but my results made me feel confident in my abilities and I credit great advice online and a great camera with the 80D. Even though the reception was much lower light, and I loathed the idea of using the built in flash, I got some great results. My latest venture was to shoot the super moon and again with some great advice, and this fantastic camera, I got results that I could never get from a point and shoot or a phone. For professionals, you already know what you want and will buy it. For enthusiasts or even beginners this can be a great step in the direction of professional photography. I opted this over the Sony A6300, even though the video is not 4K. The video performance is fantastic for my usage and I am planning on making a Sony purchase (the A6500) in the next month. But this camera is really spot on for daily usage all around. I had to lower the resolution of the attached photos to be able to upload them.

    Satisfied but no 4K video

    I've been wanting to get a DSLR camera for quite sometime but didn't know what to get and not to spend so much money. While the Canon 80D is not a Full Frame camera, it suites the need for someone like me who have not used a DSLR camera before and have been away from photography for a very long time. Although I bought it on sale, it's still expensive. However, I like the advanced features compared to the Rebels for beginnners. I didn't want to pay less for a beginner camera kit then only later have a desire for a more advanced camera while not jumping into professional classifications. This camere is in between for a hobbyist like me. The pictures I took look amazing. I can transfer the photos through wifi into my Mac or iPhone. The camera came with a 18-135mm F3.5 IS USM lens which is good enough. The kilt also offered a 70-250mm F4 IS STM telephoto zoom lens. I am returning this one because I feel it lacks closer close-ups while in the maximum leghts photos, they're a bit grainy. It can shoot a Full HD video, which I haven't tried yet. With a camera like this and the money spent, I wished it came with the 4K video because the technology is already there. Over all, I'm still satisfied with the camera and can easily spend more money for additional and better lenses, filters, hoods, external flash, remote switches, extra memories, extra batteries, camera bag, photo editing software, etc.

    I purchased this camera for my girlfriend who was shooting on a dated Canon EOS Rebel T2i. She was in need of an upgrade now that she started to do photo shoots with our kids and others. Photography is a true passion of hers and I wanted to support her improving the quality of the product she put out. I researched this purchase for weeks before deciding on the 80D. I read the pros and cons of making the jump to full frame, Canon vs. Nikon (I currently shoot Nikon) and I read many reviews. I ultimately selected the 80D for multiple reasons: 1) The quality of the camera and it's features at this price point was unbeatable, 2) The 18-135mm lens offers flexibility, 3) The rotating flip out LCD screen, 4) The size & weight (My girlfriend is a dental hygentist, her hands often bother her so the weight, while more than her previous camera was less than that of the full frame models I was looking at, 6) It's a Canon, and Canon makes great cameras (nothing against Nikon, as mentioned above I still currently shoot with a Nikon, although I'm switching to Canon so we are on the same lens platform) Overall, this is a great camera! I have not spent that much time with it yet, so I can't review on specific functions other than the Wi-Fi capability that we absolutely love. I can say with 100% certainty that I'm buying the 80D with Video Creation Kit very soon!! This is a great camera at the price point. I highly recommend buying this camera if you are looking to step up your photo game!

    I’ve never thought that I would love to own one but having to buy this camera is the best thing I have ever done. We enjoyed it so much. We don’t have to retake taking pictures of the same poses because it takes the best quality pictures and videos. Great quality and I love all the features that comes with it. We first used this camera last Christmas 2017 and have used it again right after Christmas to our family vacations to Sea World and Disneyland. I am very very pleased for all the videos and pictures we took, no fail and no more frustrations but a plain great time with the family capturing the best moments of our vacations. I am very thankful of the good gentleman who was helping me and educating me on which is which to pick for a camera. He helped me a lot and got my decision fixed to get this one. He is a good employee he made his customer very happy and satisfied and this camera will be part of our good family memories for a longest time for sure.

    I had originally considered the Canon 70D, which is a wonderful camera in its own right, but when the Canon 80D was announced I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and to start taking amazing photos and videos. It finally arrived last week and my expectations were easily exceeded with this awesome camera. It has many of the features found in the more pro-level cameras and some new ones too. The newly designed 18-135mm lens is a dream come true for this type of camera and, so far, the pictures are clear, sharp and full of vibrant color. As an upgrade to an older model or as a first D-SLR you wouldn't be disappointed if you purchased the Canon EOS 80D. The image of our weeping cherry tree was taken on a cloudy day, but is still very clear when you zoom in for a close up, even though it was resized to 1/5th the original size.

    Great Camera - But Just Ran Into Trouble

    We love this camera thus far. We have shot probably 300 videos with it within the three weeks we've been using it, all sports related. The stability lens and zoom capabilities of the out of the box product work great, even for fast moving soccer games. Unfortunately, this week, we've had a vertical and horizontal line pop up on the videos, actually, right in the middle of a game. At one point it was not there, and then the next video it appeared. I tested pictures, i tested different cards, and I even tested a different lens. The lines do not go away. Unfortunately, we have to take this back and get an exchange. I'm hopeful this won't happen again and it was just a fluke because the clarity and quick actions of the camera have been perfect to date. I'll update again once I get through another 30 days of my replacement to see if I can bump it up to five stars or if I'll have to lower down to one.

    Great DSLR Camera From Canon

    Upon purchasing this item i did do a bunch of research on it as most people should do before making their decision. I had the previous model, which is the Canon EOS 70D. Major upgrades have been made to the newer model from the mega pixels, a mic jack and also canon first camera to offer 60 fps with full 1080p resolution. They also included a duel pixel cmos sensor which is outstanding and a big leap in autofocus points for the camera which in my opinion is great for live and viewfinder shooting. This is an outstanding camera all around and top of its class for video recording for amateur and professionals! The camera is comfortable in hand and easy to learn if you are a beginner and carries its classic canon settings which previous canon users are all familiar with. For the asking price of the camera compared to the other higher end models and even its previous model before. This is a MUST BUY!

    The 80D is the second DSLR camera I've owned (I bought my T5i second-hand). I'm still fairly new to photography, but wanted to step up to the "enthusiast" level of camera. The 80D takes amazing pictures, and I love all of the "bells and whistles" it offers. It's great being able to download pics to my computer wirelessly. I can't wait to play with the other wireless features (controlling the camera from my iPad or phone). The controls are fairly intuitive, with great guides/descriptions for a newbie like me. The 18-135mm lens that came with the camera is a much better and more versatile lens than the standard 18-55mm lens that came with my T5i. The camera fits nicely in my hands, the controls are easy to reach, and it isn't overly heavy. i expect to have this camera for a long time, and will suit me very well as I get more experience behind the lens.

    I love Canon. I used a T3i with a 10-18 f/3.5-5.6, a 50 f/1.8 and the 18-55 kit lens. When my son knocked it out of my hand and broke my 4 year old T3i, it was time for an upgrade. I had the opportunity to use the 80D, which has improved autofocus (but not that much more than the 70D), marginal dynamic range improvement, and the head phone jack for audio monitoring, and 1080 at 60fps, but it just didn't feel like the upgrade I wanted quality wise for the picture. It felt soft at 1080p (which could be a result of the crop lenses that I used), so I wanted to look for better video quality as my purpose was to use it for videos as well as photos! I used the new 18-135 Nano USM, and at ~$1700, it was just awesome to use. But that same money, I ended up going with the a6300 with the 16-50mm kit, 35mm f/1.8, and the 18-105mm f/4. Better low light performance, just as awesome continuous autofocus, 11 fps when it comes to sports shooting, crop sensor, but also with 4K video. Canon is protecting its higher end line by not incorporating 4K, something that other companies like Panasonic, Fuji, and Sony are giving to consumers. I still keep my lenses and hope that the next Canon in this class will feature 4K. I'll happily go back and have 2 cameras that can do 4K.

    Canon EOS 80D - High Quality, Many Features

    When I opened the box to lift out my camera, I saw it was solid and included sturdy accessories. The 67 mm lens will provide excellent night photos and the sensor cleaning keeps pictures clear. The high resolution 6000 by 4000 pixels (about double the area of my current cellphone camera) plus the RAW format provides endless options. Wi-Fi helps with the transfer of pictures to my smartphone, printer or web photo processing service and more. I love the remote control from my phone. I will test the Wi-Fi range. I had 11 years of use / 20,000 pictures from my previous Canon (Rebel XT), so it made sense to me to find an equivalent Canon or more professional model.

    I switched from Nikon to Canon and the 80D was the best all around choice for me. My budget was limited due to the fact that I was switching brands and would need to purchase lenses as well. Which is also the reason for buying the kit with the 18-135mm zoom. I use the camera for both photography and videography and the features from this camera made it an easy decision. I shoot architecture full time and the images look great and I can tell a noticeable difference from my old Nikon. I also looked into buying the 6D Mark II and although it was a full frame camera, the video features were lacking compared to the 80D. I wish I had the option for 4k but it definitely does the job for what I need. All that and the fact that switching brands was not even an issue, is the reason I bought and love this camera. Very easy to use and I would definitely recommend the 80D for anyone beginner to pro!

    I wanted to upgrade from my Canon T3i, which was great to teach me composition and forced me to understand manual focus but had no auto focus during video and the image quality just wasn’t up to modern standards anymore. I looked into the Panasonic’s, Sony’s and even all the new mirrorless cameras. For me I really like the size of a DSLR, unfortunately I don’t have the budget to go full frame but the image quality on the 80D is incredible. When speaking AF no one does it better than Canon the 45 AF points make it so I can just touch the screen what I want in focus and it tracks the object/person with no problem. Stepping up and getting the upgraded nanoUSM 18-135mm lens in the kit was well worth every penny. Great clarity and when using the tracking AF you can’t hear the lens parts moving if you’re not specifically paying attention to it. All in all I think if anyone is looking to upgrade from an entry level/outdated DSLR the Canon 80D just works. Little to no color correction needed for video. I am in love.

    I've used a Canon 60D for several years, but I wanted to be able to connect to wireless (note that my 60D didn't have wireless b/c it was purchased a few months before Canon started adding that feature to its cameras). This camera gave me that, plus some really sweet advances that make it a better camera for shooting film than my 60D. While I would still recommend the 60D for people who may find the price on this camera more than they want to spend. But, this camera is a great camera for experienced photographers and newbies as well. The features make the menu a little more complex than the 60D, but the manual is easy to use and the wireless capacity is fantastic. The kit lens makes sharp pictures in all but low light/high speed situations. I would, however, recommend turning the wireless off when you aren't using it b/c it does drain the battery much faster than normal shooting does. This is also a great camera for someone who wants to shoot film as well as photos. Many of the best updates/new features are most noticeable when shooting film.

    I've been a Canon user ever since my first SLR, a Canon A1. the EOS 80D has exceeded my expectations. I'm afraid it's going to take me a while to master all this camera can do. The 18-135 mm lens is a fast focusing demon. A 7 fps drive in high speed shutter the 45 point auto-focus, wifi including remote shutter, and many more functions than can be covered here. Add a BG-E14 grip and get much longer shooting and flexibly. I had been looking at replacing my Xsi and when Canon made the release, I pre-ordered and got it the day of official release. Get a large 64gig minimum SDXC with at least USH-1 because these are large file when saving both RAW and jog files, 30-35 meg.

    I upgraded from my Canon t4i that I had been shooting on for 6 years, and this was honestly the best purchase I could have made. I do both photography and videography somewhat professionally. This is the best Canon camera you can buy in terms of versatility. It is the only Canon camera that is good for both video and photo work. However, do not buy this camera if you are not familiar with camera settings or if you're not looking to educate yourself on camera settings (aperture, ISO, shutter speeds, etc.) This camera is NOT worth the money if you're not going to take full advantage of its settings. You might as well buy a point and shoot camera or take photos on your iPhone if that's the case.

    The Canon 80D fills a good spot between the Canon consumer models in the Rebel line, and the "pro" models such as the full frame 5DM4. It has a very nice AF system, good build quality, and a lot of customization possible. I upgraded from a 7D. While I stepping down a bit in the frames per second (from 8 to 7) the 80D's better AF system and ISO range are worthwhile. The touchscreen is something I can take or leave, but I have been using it. I am also attending the monthly BB camera experience store workshops, and the most recent session was on video, and the 80D is much easier to use video wise than my earlier DSLRs. BB matched the price on Amazon, during one of the Amazon's short "sales" that they had.

    I narrowed down my choices to this 80d or a Nikon 7500. While reviews said the Nikon was slightly better for pics I am not a professional. Picture taking is my hobby. I had a canon t 3? While I still get good pics with that this camera is way better. I got it right before a trip to the beach and had no problems taking great action pics of surfers and wild ponies. I was able to get great shots of the kids and of sunrises. Pics came out great and didn't even need to edit. If you love taking pics and want better pics then I recommend this camera. If you are going to be taking a lot of pics but don't need all the extras you can get a t6 for a lot cheaper and takes great pics too.

    This camera blends together the great features from the Rebel T6 line with numerous higher end features for a great price. Yes there are more capable cameras out there but at a completely different price point. In my opinion, this is the most capable camera without having to spend another $2,000. You get built in flash and Wi-Fi along with Vari-Angle Screen which is very convenient. The extremely fast shutter speed is great for those action shots. The NFC feature is great allowing easy file transfer to my Canon Connect Station which I got in a bundle with my 80D. The camera is not too heavy so it won't wear you out by the end of the day. The battery also has tremendous life. The one feature I wish was included was GPS as the adaptable GPS option has only average reviews. All in all, this camera is capable of everything that I will be shooting and am extremely happy with it so far. Highly recommend.

    Absolute Powerhouse, A Video Revolution for DSLR

    First of all I have been making short films for over 18 years now, it's a huge passion of mine. I had been using a Canon Vixia HG20 for about 7 years now and it was beyond time to upgrade. I read countless reviews, watched tons of videos online and finally decided this was the camera for me. For a lot of people like me, making the jump from a camcorder to a DSLR is a scary thing, but trust me, you won't regret it. I do wedding videos on the side as a source of supplemental income and I thought what many of you might have, how does this thing do in the "run and gun" situations, well let me tell you, this things auto focus is the real deal. Not to mention that you can shoot in 60, 30 and 24 FPS. For me, this camera is a true delight, not only does it deliver just amazing video quality, but you also get the amazing plus of having a professional camera as well.
