Canon Announces The New EOS 80D

News Image
Canon has announced the new EOS 80D DSLR camera.

Ideal for enthusiasts, it combines imaging technologies including a new 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 processor, a new 45 all cross-type point AF system and fast responsive 7 fps shooting rate. It can capture stills and full HD movies.

The company has also unveiled an all-purpose lens, the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, with new Nano USM technology, and an optional Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E1, for smooth zoom control when shooting movies and remote operation via Wi-Fi.

The new sensor on the EOS 80D provides clarity and the ability to crop in, while the 45 all cross-type point AF system and 7 fps shooting can freeze action with ultimate precision. For pin-point focusing or wide-area tracking, the AF points are individually selectable or grouped into areas, providing users with more control over composition. When using lens combinations with narrow apertures, 27 f/8 compatible AF points offer focus, even in extreme situations.

Designed to shoot in varying light conditions, the camera has a native ISO 100-16,000 range, expandable to ISO 25,600, and the AF system will continue to work under moonlight (-3EV). The 7560-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor measures both visible light and invisible infra-red light, giving accurate exposures, while Flicker Detection ensures consistent exposure when shooting under flickering artificial lights. A new White Priority setting also helps reduce the appearance of warmer tones.

The EOS 80D is customisable, with conveniently-placed controls giving access to the most used modes and settings. Elsewhere, the Intelligent Viewfinder displays 100% of the frame, as well as the current settings. Users can also quickly switch to the 7.7cm (3.0") Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touch screen, which is ideal for movie shooting, Live View mode, or accessing functions quickly.

The camera also offers flexibility with Full HD movie shooting. Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology ensures accurate auto focus and smooth focus tracking is achieved, while both AF speed and AF tracking sensitivity can be easily adjusted to give users complete control over the pace and responsiveness of the AF. The EOS 80D can shoot at 60p in MP4 format. It also includes headphone and microphone inputs.

In addition, users are able to benefit from remote shooting via their smartphone or tablet using the EOS 80D with Canon's Camera Connect app. Built-in Wi-Fi and Dynamic NFC connectivity ensures simplicity when connecting with, and sharing full resolution JPEGs to a smart device. It can also connect to and control the camera via a PC, without the need for a home Wi-Fi router, to quickly save, view and share photos and movies from one single accessible location using Canon's Connect Station CS100.

Canon's new EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM provides high performance auto-focus for movies and stills with the focal range to shoot wide, or up close, within a single lens. The EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM is the first Canon lens to feature Nano USM focus technology. The new Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E1 is compact and lightweight, designed for the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM to enable smooth, fingertip zoom control when shooting movies.

The EOS 80D is available from May 2016 with an RRP of £999.99 (€769.99) body only.

The EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM is available from May 2016 with an RRP of £439.99 (€610).

The Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E1 is available from May 2016 with an RRP of £129.99 (€179.99).
