Canon 77D is flawlessly racing on the track with its high class specifications but its collision with its own sibling, Canon 80D is going to be tough. On the other hand, most of the photographers who may have already made up their minds to buy 77D must be happy to see that it undisputedly borrowing most of the major features from its very close… 80D. Yes! If you look at the table then you can clearly see that Canon’s own Proprietary, DPAF (Dual pixel CMOS AF) and 45 AF points (nothing change), plus the most interesting part the heart of the camera that is image sensor and resolution both are almost photocopy to each other. Now, the main question is the Price Factor! Canon 80D’s list price is around $1100, on the other hand, Canon 77D manages to keep its price level remains attainable (around $900). Well, then you must ask why do we pay more for Canon 80D when almost all the major specifications are just the cpy of each other.
Let’s go in detailed comparison to find out the exact reason…

At the heart of both cameras, the big APS-C sensors of almost same sizes have been implemented with same effective pixels, which clearly means that users of both cameras can acquire high standard image quality with stunning details. But Canon 77D has gone a step forward and uses advanced Digic 7 Image processing engine for even faster operations.
To be honest, Canon did a great work by offering the intelligent Dual Pixel AF system even in the affordable 77D camera. Yes! Same as Canon 80D Canon also has fabricated this excellent AF system with creative 45 AF points in their 77D also, so that the users can achieve the focus of the fast moving subjects very quickly and precisely (as quick as 0.03s!)
After all, both the two cameras maintain the same range of ISO value. But the best difference or you can say a significant advantage of Canon 80D is that it avails the faster shutter of 1/8000 sec. Faster shutter speed in a camera ultimately blocks the way of distortion, plus also incredibly minimizes the “rolling shutter” effect while shooting fast moving subjects. Furthermore, this fast shutter speed also allows the camera to capture sharp, crystal clear images with a wide open aperture while shooting at bright light conditions. On the other hand, Canon 77D is restricted to 1/4000 sec only.
Continuous shooting speed
Not a big difference, but still Canon 80D is leading by 1fps in continuous shooting drive. As a result, a rapidly occurring scene can be captured very comfortably and the images will be very crisp and clear by Canon 80D. Canon 77D has only 6fps.
Now you can see here… Means almost exact reason why Canon 80D costs you much more than Canon 77D. Because Canon 80D has been the weather sealed body lets you continue you photography session even in the struggling shooting situations, such as shooting in Marshy land etc. Unfortunately, Canon 77D is not weather sealed camera, which means users should be very careful while shooting in the unfavorable shooting conditions.
Maximum number of shots are truly possible with Canon 80D that lets you take around 960 shots at a time, whereas Canon 77D will be reached to 600 shots only.
Honestly, the photographers who are not intended to stretch their savings but still require a marvelous camera then don’t look further, put you cash on Canon 77D. But if, they still want a pioneer camera with incredible specs go for Canon 80D.
