Canon 6D Mark II vs Canon 80D

Canon 6D Mark II 80D

The competition between Full-Frame DSLR and APS-C DSLR camera. Full frame is Canon 6D Mark II and the APS-C is Canon 80D. Canon 6D Mark II’s one of the big strength is its image quality, that will be super sharper than Canon 80D due to full frame sensor. Electronic Image stabilization mechanism has been incorporated to help you getting blur free images etc. Canon 6D Mark II, on the other hand, has been one of the eminent cameras of current time that optimistically raising its score to the next level. But before that it has to play with Canon 80D. Let’s see the match

 Image quality

Doubt is nowhere, Canon 6D Mark II captures the finest quality of images. You can see a camera comes with Full-Frame 26.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor for high resolution and stunning detailed images that combines DIGIC 7 Image Processor – A new processing engine that improves the images quality even while shooting at Lowlight areas. On the other hand, Canon 80D is based on APS-C sensor plus lesser effective pixels compared to 6D Mk II so due to comparatively lower pixels Canon 80D can’t get the large print of the shots as of Canon 6D Mark II.


If your shooting requires high sensitivity then Canon 6D Mark II offers an expandable ISO of 102400, whereas the standard ISO offered by the camera is 40000. So that you can capture quality images at lowlight areas. On the other side, Canon 80D offers the maximum ISO range to use is 51200 only.


Both Camera carry exactly same Phase AF Module, the sensor of both the camera carry same DPAF tech.

Image stabilization

Camera shakes are uncontrolled while shooting handheld. When you record videos moving your camera here and there, Up and Down then camera shakes surely arise that affect the video quality means blurs are easily noticeable. Luckily, 5-axis electronic I.S mechanism inside Canon 6D Mark II dramatically suppresses the appearance of those shakes and lets you record beautiful Full HD videos with minimal blur. Canon 80D, whereas, can capture of record blur free and crisp images and videos when attached to a IS compatible lens.

Continuous shooting speed

There is a light difference in their Frame rates. 80D avails 7fps whereas 6D MK  II with 6.5fps. So, we expect both the two cameras can capture the quick action of the subjects comfortably.


Canon 6D Mark II is a fullframe sensor camera whereas the Canon 80D is APS-C sensor based camera, due to large pixel area the Canon 6D Mark II features enhanced light gathering ability. You will get better low-light performance, dynamic range from 6D Mk 2 camera. We highly recommend you to get 6D Mk2 instead of Canon 80D.
