Canon EOS 80D

£74.00 for 3 days

The 80D, announced in early 2016, is (obviously) the successor to the very popular and competent 70D. Canon's engineers obviously believe that if it ain't broke it don't need fixing, and the 80D is essentially an incremental upgrade which is the same as the 70D only better.

So it retains the built-in WiFi, tilt-and-swivel LCD touchscreen, dual pixel autofocus, 7 frames per second burst speed, and so on. Plus it adds a few more pixels, an all-new 45-point autofocus system that can see in the dark (down to -3EV, if that means anything to you) and autofocus with an f/8 lens/extender combination, improved video capability (1080p at 60 fps), better high-ISO performance and better dynamic range, plus a host of other minor improvements. There's a lot to like here and it's a worthy upgrade.

We can't realistically list all the detailed specifications of the camera here, so if you're interested you'll find them on the Canon UK website - here.

What's in the box? Quite a lot. Camera. Strap. Two genuine Canon LP-E6N batteries. Battery charger with mains lead. 16GB Sandisk Extreme SD card. USB cable. User manuals on CD. Have we forgotten anything? We don't think so!


PROTIP: You can check the availability of several lenses at the same by adding them to your basket and viewing the Basket Availability.
