Canon EOS cameras are great for not only capturing quality photos, but also for creating video for your YouTube channel, or other video projects. At NAB, I got to see one of the latest versions – the Canon 80d Camera.
With a wide-area, 45-point, all cross-type AF system, this camera will work in lower light with a luminance performance to EV-3. The camera has a 24.2 Megapixels CMOS sensor to create high-resolution images.
The 80D camera will also work well as a video camera. Fast autofocus, built-in Wi-Fi, NFC, and 1080p 60fps MP4 video will allow for great video shots.
The base unit comes with an EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 Stabilized USM lens. An optional Røde microphone can be added for capturing video.
But the 80D also includes something videographers have been asking for – a headphone jack to monitor audio capture.
Canon also released the T7i for a low-cost alternative to the 80D. No headphone jack, but it is a great introductory camera for the Vlogger or video press blogger.
