Was planning an upgrade to a 7DII soon. I'll probably wait to see the reviews on the 80D. If the Noise/ISO are similar between the two, it will be a tough choice for me. I like the idea of 10fps, but 7fps is no slouch, and...


When I'm shooting the ISS transiting the Moon, the articulating screen would be a huge help and 24mp vs 20mp would be a bonus too.

The focus system looks pretty good

I've never used Wifi but can see some uses for it, and could have used it at times in the past.

Remote "hooting"! I LOVE OWLS! (seriously though, there have been times I would have used it if I had it).

Not sure yet how the "timelapse movies" function will work. I've shot a few, but would prefer to shoot raw files and process them for a timelapse, so this might be a wash with the7DII, although the built in intervalometer on both will be upgrade over my t2i and 7D.

You don't realize how helpful the Wifi is until you actually have it and can use it.

I've actually set mine up on a tripod feet away from my bird feeder then sat in the living room w a beer watching tv and monitoring my tablet. then just click the tablet when I see something!

I also use it at events for wireless printing.

I couldn't care less about 4k. I don't sit 1 foot away from my tv and I dont have a tv the size of my living room wall. Kind of similar to some people being concerned with large MP cameras.

horrifically short sited. Were you saying the same thing when dvd moved to bluray? The difference is drastic. You dont have to sit 1 feet away to see the difference, you can be 15' away from a 60" tv and easily tell the difference.

On my 60" OLED tv at the viewing distance to my chair, i notice zero differences...at about 4' away i notice a slight difference...2' away BIG difference...but that just me. Maybe i'm not as nitpicky...my definition of "drastic" difference is different than yours. I guess im not as easily impressed  :p

Looks like the screen is the same as the 4Ti. Why wouldn't they let you photo the back?

I was thinking the same thing. Especially since the photos are already online of every angle of the camera

Whatevs!..
Pre-ordering soon!! Lol.  :p

Seriously tho,, comparison video have been made. . And of course canons full HD is better .. but not by much .. the detail caught by 4k is awesome and makes better 1080 then when captured at 1080

Compared to my phone, more details are lost in shadows so harder on post .. however I ain't doing all that on videos from my phone ..
Northrup made a video comparing sony full frame 4k vs iPhone 4k.. difference was not that drastic. . Again, if you are using video straight out of cam..

Panasonic G7 had some very awesome 4k.. at only 700.. a6300.. at 1000 has included it..to me it's just one of those things that everyone is making standard. . But canon wants you to buy a 1dxii if you want from them

Do I need it for my home videos? Of course not..
I'm getting a panasonic gh4 or gx8 soon .. and will be Pre-ordering an 80d.. well see which ones a keeper for me


BandH has expected date of 3/27... while adorama shows 4/15.

Sorry I have to call that bluff. At 15' with a 60" TV given 20/20 vision, you couldn't tell 720P from 1080P much less 4k. You would need a 120" TV just to start noticing 4K at that distance and around 200" to get the full benefit: that's like 16 feet diagonal!

4K does nothing for me either. There is a point that more detail just doesn't add much to the story line of a movie for me. Now documentaries of nature and space, etc, then I could really see the need for more detailed imagery for a movie, but in general, 1080p is just fine with me, and I don't want to have spend a ton of money on new tech just to get a bit more detail in what I view. I am simply not that interested.

It's like having 2 cars, one that tops out at 150mph and one that tops out at 200mph, but generally speaking, the cars are fairly equal at 0-60 and quarter mile times. I have seen 200mph on a vehicle exactly once in my life, and the most before that (and after) has been around 140mph or so. There is a point of diminishing returns for myself anyways around having the ability to do more, but never really utilizing it.

Film projected at a theater on a HUGE screen is actually far less than 4K in most environments due to projector issues, optics, etc. degrading the not-quite-4k film resolution. 1080 is far better than the vast majority of home users really need. Also, the quality of video on the screen is dependent on the encoding more than the resolution when you get to that level. Good 720p looks better than low bit rate 1080p on a typical TV - especially if the transfer is not carefully done (which is unfortunately very common).

As someone who shoots only stills, I really don't want to pay a premium for video at all. If I wanted to shoot 4k professionally, I'd buy a video camera which was actually designed to easily and comfortably do video in the first place instead of a DSLR which has had video shoehorned into the architecture. :-)

if keeping 4k out keeps the price down or even taking it out altogether makes it even cheaper, im all for it!

Sorry I have to call that bluff. At 15' with a 60" TV given 20/20 vision, you couldn't tell 720P from 1080P much less 4k. You would need a 120" TV just to start noticing 4K at that distance around 200" to get the full benefit: that's like 16 feet diagonal!

no offense, but this is a photography board and probably most would easily be able to pick out a 4K tv, even at 15' IMO.

4K to 1080p is closer to 1080p and 480p.

the debate over 720p vs 1080p of the past was a smaller ratio. Not to mention, a lot of the earlier model tv's were considered small nowadays. 42" use to be big, but now, 60" is average I think. We're getting bigger and bigger screens, easiest way to test is to go to costco, where they have split screens. Pretty easy to tell with a side by side, and as we trend towards bigger and bigger TV's, you can look a few years back to see that all that video footage you have wont be as nice. I have the similar philosophy with photography, I would hope that my work be a bit more timeless, using the most resolution I can get my hands on.

I was looking to pick up a cheap 60d for under $400 in a couple of months. Now that the 80d is announce, is it realistic to expect a used 70d to drop below 500? I much prefer the 70d's video capability over the 60d. I m mostly interested it using it as a b roll camera or for time lapse.

Just because you're into a field doesn't mean you're not human. I see this all the time on audio forums; I'm an experienced listener, therefore I can hear a 30kHz tweeter... despite science saying otherwise.

Now, I'm not saying that photographers don't have a keener eye than the average Joe, but it doesn't mean they'll be able to see what's outside the envelope of human ability.


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent
