SENSOR – Canon 80D is better than Canon 70D – Yes

Upgraded Phase AF Module AF System (45 vs 19 AF points)

The camera features upgraded Phase AF moudle AF system that carries 45 Points all cross type and the most advance part of this camera is 27 of the points are capable of focusing down to f/8 while shooting with super tele-photo lenses. Canon 70D AF system was limited to 19 point AF only, so its a big positive change on terms of dedicated Phase AF module inside the camera.

Upgraded Dual Pixel CMOS AF System inside Canon 80D (Fast AF during live shooting )

We have completely new Dual pixel CMOS AF sensor inside the  of the Canon 80D camera, the 24MP camera sensor is developed with next generation of Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology used inside the Canon 7D Mark II camera and its AF performance during Live view shooting and video recording is significantly better than Canon EOS 70D.

Advance Image processor inside the Canon 80D compared to Canon 70D

The Canon 80D arrived with DIGIC 6 image processor inside the camera and the 70D was using Canon Dual DIGIC 6 image processor and as a result we can see slight increase in the performance speed of the Canon 80D DSLR.

Maintaing the Continuous shooting speed despite if increase in resolution – The Canon 80D carries 4MP + resolution compared to Canon 70D, but the continuous shooting speed of both the camera remains same.

Standard ISO range also pushed to approximate 1+ stop, the standard ISO range of the Canon 80D camera has been pushed up to 16000 but believe me it won’t going to show up any significant difference.

Canon 80D vs Canon 70D High ISO Test

Canon 70D vs Canon 80D ISO 6400 imageCanon 80D does show bit improvement over Canon 70D but that not sufficient to upgrade your Canon 70D camera with 80D, I will suggest you to wait  for Canon 90D or get a Fullframe camera.

Canon 80D or Canon 70D – Finale Verdict

Canon 80D features new sensor and advance AF system, hence you can see in the High ISO test that despite of increase in resolution the camera is still showing less noise compared to Canon 70D camera, hence we recommend you to get Canon 80D over Canon 70D.
