Sensors:-Canon EOS 80D features 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor packed with Digic6 image processor and the rival Sony a6300 carries 24.2MP Exmor CMOS sensor powered with the BIONZ X image processor to produce magnificent and smooth image quality with reduction in noise due to more ISO range and also maintains the better image resolution even in low-light conditions to deliver magnificent image quality, low –light sensitivity and better color combination and also it is packed with advanced 4D FOCUS system which supports the camera to focus in different situations with more detailed and impressive image quality.

The BIONZ X image processor of Sony a6300 along with advanced 24.2MP Exmor CMOS sensor improved the video quality and offers UHD 4K videos in multiple frame rates up to 30 fps while Canon EOS 80D only supports Full HD videos at 60fps .

Canon EOS 80D has the expandable ISO of 100-25600, while Sony a6300 offers expandable ISO of 100-51200.

Hence, the presence of hybrid CMOS AF sensor along with 4D FOCUS system and advanced BIONZ X image processor makes the Sony a6300 superior compare to Canon EOS 80D.


Low pass filter:-Canon EOS 80D has used a low pass filter which will definitely eliminate the problem of moiré by blurring what actually reaches the sensor but at the cost of sacrificing the extreme details of the images during this process, hence it will be a big blow on landscape photographers that never see moiré and yet end up with blurred details. While there is no requirement of low pass filter in Sony a6300 because it has advanced hybrid CMOS AF sensor which makes the camera to produce blur-free images with more details even when viewed at 100% scale which will definitely be admired by the photographers comparative to the image quality produced by Canon EOS 80D .


AF System:-The Canon EOS 80D offers 45 AF points (all points cross type) while Sony a6300 comes with advanced and more 425- phase-detect AF system with a 169-area contrast detect points for fast and precise focusing performance.

Since, due to the inclusion of 4D FOCUS system in Sony a6300, it supports it to provide the more AF points. Hence the increased density of focusing points is due to its hybrid AF system and also it enables more superior and accurate High-density Tracking AF which helps it to track fast moving objects in random speed in various lighting environment.

So, undoubtedly the more advance AF points of Sony a6300 helps it to capture more AF area of the screen and targets the real object more quickly whether it will in action or still compare to Canon EOS 80D.


ISO:-Canon 80D has expandable ISO of 100-25600 while Sony a6300 offers expandable ISO of 100-51200.

Hence, there is 1 stop increase in expanded ISO of Sony a6300 compare to Canon 80D.

The improvement of 1 stop in the ISO of Sony a6300 will definitely better for the users to capture images in low light as well as changing light conditions in compare to Canon 80D.

Hence the higher ISO of Sony a6300 makes the users to shoot all kinds of photography in various environmental conditions while the lesser ISO makes the users to shoot with Canon 80D in bright conditions.


Continuous shooting speed:-Canon 80D has slower Continuous shooting speed of 7fps compare to Sony a6300, which has 11fps.

So, Sony a6300 will perform well with better result during capturing fast action objects and also can track each and every action of the fast moving subjects more quickly compare to Canon 80D.


Videos:-The Canon EOS 80D offers Full HD videos at 60fps while Sony a6300 offers UHD 4K recording in multiple frame rates up to 30 fps also it offers Full HD 1080p recording which is supported in frame rates up to 120 fps.

Hence, the impressive video quality of Sony a6300 will definitely impress the professional photographers compare to Canon EOS 80D.

Verdicts- Sony A6300 has some impossible specifications and the most attractive one is 425 phase detection AF points, the world’s highest number of AF points on any interchangeable lens camera. A new camera of Sony must impress you during your photography session.
