New equipment release: Canon EOS 80D

Today we’re looking at a new equipment release from Canon; the Canon EOS 80D.

The EOS 80D is the latest DSLR from Canon and is designed to be a great all-purpose camera that can be used in almost any situation.

The 24.2 megapixel sensor, along with an expanded ISO range, and improved auto focus means that the 80D is more than capable in even the lowest light situations. If you are thinking of using the 80D to capture some images at night, be sure to check out our Moon Photography Tips here.

The 80D also offers full HD video shooting, with a fully adjustable auto focus and tracking. This, along with 60fps shooting gives you a powerful video tool that should suit everyone other than the most serious of video-makers.

While the EOS 80D might be on the expensive side for newer photographers, it is a camera that promises a long lifespan, and boasts features that will keep it relevant over the coming years.  The Canon EOS 80D will be available in stores in March 2016.
