Sensors:-Canon EOS 80D comes with 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor powered with advanced Digic6 image processor to produce magnificent and smooth image quality with reduction in noise and also it will maintain the better image resolution even in low-light conditions to deliver magnificent image quality, low –light sensitivity and better color combination while the Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera features a 20.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor coupled with DIGIC 5+ image processor also produce well-detailed, clear imagery.
But the advanced technology used in the image processor of Canon EOS 80D will make it superior compare to Canon EOS 70D.
The advanced image processor of Canon EOS 80D will also improve the video quality by recording Full HD videos at 60fps compare to Canon EOS 70D which only produce an image quality with Full HD videos at 30fps.
Canon 80D has standard ISO of 100-16000 while the Canon EOS 70D has comparatively lower standard ISO of 100-12800. Hence the users will get cleaner low-light images with Canon 80D while using standard ISO range.
Canon 80D captures 24.2MP files @ 7fps while the Canon EOS 70D captures 20.2MP files @ 7fps.
Hence Due to the impressive role of advanced Digic6 image processor, it maintains to gain the similar frame rate of 7fps despite of increase in resolutions along with faster AF speed compare to Canon EOS 70D.
AF System:-The Canon EOS 80D offers advanced 45 AF points (all points cross type) which is superior to Canon 70D which supports 19-Point All Cross-Type Phase -Detect AF points.
So, there is no doubt that the more advance AF points of Canon EOS 80D helps it to grab more AF area of the screen and locates the real subject more quickly and also it is beneficial for tracking fast and randomly moving subjects and also the users can track the subject more effectively compare to Canon 70D.
Wireless:-The Canon EOS 80D features Wi-Fi, NFC and Remote shooting; hence its NFC (Near Field Communications) technology supports to connect the camera wirelessly to other devices through it. While Canon 70D supports only Wi-Fi connectivity.
So, the presence of NFC in Canon EOS 80D makes the connectivity faster to other devices compare to Canon70D.
Videos:-The Canon EOS 80D offers Full HD videos at 60fps While Canon 70D supports Full HD 1080p video recording at 30, 24, and 25 fps. So undoubtedly the Canon EOS 80D will give its users a better experience with impressive video quality.
Verdicts-A few specification have been changed in 80D compared to Canon 70D and the users will have fun during photography using 80D.
