Canon has recently updated the mid range, enthusiast Canon EOS 70D to Canon EOS 80D, one of our favorite movie-capable DSLRs after being in the market for almost three years. The latest updated features include more megapixels, improved video quality, and an enhanced autofocus system. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF system remains intact but it has been enhanced to deliver improved speed and tracking. We can confidently say that it is the best affordable enthusiast camera that delivers great imaging results.

It comes with an all black DSLR body style with a textured finish. It is a bit bulky as it measures around 5.5 x 4.1 x 3.1 inches and weighs about 26 ounces without a lens. The large grip and a substantial body allows many photographers to keep it nice and steady when held. It comes with Canon’s new EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM attached with the Canon EF mount, it accepts around 100 lenses made for theCanon EOS 80D system. It is pretty comfortable when you attach a compact prime lens, though might feel the weight when you attach a 18-135mm lens.There has been an addition of a headphone port next to the microphone jack, which is useful for shooting videos. The vari-angle touchscreen LCD allows you to hold the camera at various creative angels and use your fingers to tap on a specific focus point.
