    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.

    Great prosumer camera

    Let start by saying that I am glad I purchased this camera. I am getting into photography and videography. Using my smartphone was ok but this takes it to a whole new level. My wife has a Canon Rebel t5 and this just blows it away. Right now I am using the kit lens (18-135 mm USM). The thing I have learned is to use RAW for the formatting. I am also going full on manual. One of the best features of this camera is the dual pixel auto focus. It is fast and accurate. The face tracking keeps up with the movement of the person you are recording. Also the focus works great when I record my kids' concerts with bright lights on them (my wife's t5 struggles to focus with bright stage lights on the subjects). If there is one complaint I might have with this camera is the wifi connection. It takes a lot to get it connected to my phone. But once it does, it is handy to use when I record, especially when my camera is on the tripod and I cannot access the buttons on the back without nearly knocking the whole setup over. Another con is the lack of 4K video. But to me this is pretty minor as I record mostly in 1080P. Would I recommend this camera? If you are serious into video and photo, then yes, especially if it is on sale. If you are just starting and are unsure, try one of the lesser DSLRs.

    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 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!!

    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.

    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.

    Not a Beginners Camera

    This camera has tons of functions with descriptive buttons and graphics to help understand. One down side to this camera has been how hard it is to connect the camera WiFi to your phone or other devices for quick sharing. I still haven’t gotten it figured out but it is partly because the app is outdated. I love this camera because of its touch screen, fold out screen, and easily accessible quality button control. There are special filters on the camera but some of them are totally ugly and ruin the photo. I enjoy the miniature effect filter! And with the 50 mm lens it takes PERFECT crisp portraits.

    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.

    I love being able to shoot photos and 4K videos with the same camera. I purchased a 128 GB and a 256 GB San Disk card and can record hours of videos and thousands of photos--enough to capture 3 to 4 weeks of vacation, with space to spare. My favorite feature is that I can set it to "No Flash," and can shoot photos and videos in low light situations and in museums where flash is not permitted, and have the photos turn out perfect. Another great feature is that when the microphone is pointed to the scene I am shooting, it picks up the sounds in front of me beautifully, but if I want to comment on what I am shooting, I can point the microphone towards me. This is the best camera I have ever owned, and I have 2 other Canon digital cameras, pus 3 other high end 35 millimeter film cameras.

    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.

    Canon 80D Video Creator

    I am loving my Canon 80D. I used to do quite a bit of black and white photography until film and developing became too expensive for me. At that time I was not all that impressed with DSLRs. A year or so ago I started researching all the major brands. I made up my mind to get the Canon t6i then I saw the Canon 80D. I have been impressed with it. My daughter is in Orchestra. I was able to get some awesome shots of her and her friends at their Christmas concert. Some of the shots showed I still need to develop my skills with the camera (no fault with the camera). The same goes for the Video Creator. If I was to make my purchase again, I would buy another Canon 80D.

    This Canon camera is a step up from my Canon Rebel T6. There is a lot to learn but I'm having fun checking out all the different features and having the video creator kit makes it easier to zoom in and out while taking video and the Rode microphone helps to eliminate surrounding sounds and helps record the sound in front of your lens. Great step up and I feel more like a professional photographer, I even see professional photographer using this camera. I look forward to learning all the features and taking some awesome photos and videos.

    This camera exceeds my expectations by far. I am just a beginner moving up from a point and shoot. I'm recently retired and wanted a camera that I could take photography lessons with and use on my travels. I found that this camera is very easy to use out of the box on automatic, but it takes even better pictures on the manual setting. The articulating LED screen on the back makes it easy to shoot from different angles. The LED screen is also a touch screen which makes it easier to change the settings quickly. This is just a fabulous camera and I think it is a great choice if you are looking to move up from a point and shoot.

    Everything in this kit is great and I am pleased with the exception of 1 thing. The Microphone Go was missing the cord to connect to camera. Was online with BB for an hour an they were about to make things right but then I got disconnected. Ended up buying a cord from another sight. The hour long wait on the phone and constantly being transferred was very inconvenient for such an expensive purchase. Overall, the Camera is great and does EXCELLENT video and photos!

    This camera has met and exceeded all of my expectations so far. I was a bit skeptical about the touch screen focus, but it’s actually a nice feature to have. All around this camera has been great the few times I’ve gotten to use it so far. I have not had a chance to use it for the video capabilities yet but will be doing so soon. I have a friend that uses this camera primarily for the video and has great results with it.

    This was my first DSLR camera to purchase. I was completely unsure about what brand, model, and so forth to buy. After reading all the reviews about this particular camera, I decided to purchase it. I'm glad I did. If you want a camera that can perform well with filming, this is the one you need for a starter camera. Canons are known for video performance, as well as good photography, and Nikon is known for just photography performance. If you are looking for a camera that can do both, look no further.

    Having previously used film, it was an easy choice to select another Canon product. The camera features and controls allow you to take control on your shooting so that is it much more than an expensive point and shoot. WiFi lets your use the Canon Connect app to control your camera through your smart phone. If you add a separate Canon Speedlite those controls are on the back of the camera's touch screen display. A good value and Best Buy makes the purchase experience a home.

    Bought this for my wife as a Christmas gift. We have been looking to get a DSLR camera for a while now and after doing a bit of research, this was the perfect camera for even a beginner photographer. It has everything the T6i and 70D has combined. Perfect! My suggestion is that if you don't plan on making videos with your DSLR, then just get the regular packaged 80D. I bought the video creator kit for and extra few hundred dollars because I want to film my daughter and her precious moments.

    I love this camera! After many days of reading and reviewing other products, the Canon 80D is the best overall. Great photos, excellent video and ease of use are my top priorities. Save money and buy the Video Creator Kit. That's 150.00 to 250.00 in savings pending on the kit. Also, buy the 50mm EF lens but check prices. I saved by price matching to amazon on many of my excessories by 10.00 to 50.00 on most items.
