Canon 80D vs. 70D

Hey there killer watching diy video guy here and in this video i'm going to be talking about the cannon a td the new medium sized dslr that they just announced yesterday versus the canon 70d which has been out for a while has become kind of a staple of what youtubers are using to do their talking head videos or to vlog and so in this video i'm going to be talking about the differences between the two so you can decide whether or not it makes sense to pay a little bit more and get the 8th ed or to stick with the 70d so let's get started available towards the end of march 2016 that a td is going to have some upgrades over the 70d the first of which being that it can shoot 60 frames per second in 1080p vs 70d only shoots it in 720p also you're getting for more megapixels if you're going from the 70 to 80 d it's going up to 24. 2 megapixels when you're taking stills and you're not going to get 4k video and this line of canon cameras yet this is the 6th ed this shot 1080p like four years ago and the 8th ed is still not giving you 4 k quite yet so if you really want 4k probably have to go with another brand for now or jump up to the xc 10 from canon which is about two thousand dollars to restore a few more of the new features it has a new battery but the batteries are backwards compatible they basically just put an end at the end of the lpe six batteries so the last a little bit longer with some new technology they're also the headphone jack has been added and the headphone and microphone jacks are also

angled so when you tilt the screen out it doesn't get blocked as quickly and then you have other features like you have an extra custom setting on the mode dial so on the top here instead of just one custom setting you'll actually have to for some more still settings you actually get more auto focus points so it's coming from 19 to 45 which is an added bonus so if you are doing photography and you need to be able to have it take a lot of different points if you're taking photos of action or things moving it will be helpful to have all those extra focus points then there is continuous autofocus in live view mode so if you are not using the the eyepiece but you actually have your stills through the live view on the back you can continuously autofocus which before you can only do that through the eyepiece on the 70 the 70d added wi-fi on top of the 6th ed the one I have here but now the atd also has your frequency communication or nfc so if you have a device like a phone or something like that where you can just put the camera up to it and transfer photos that's another way that you can do so or you can still use wi-fi to get the photos to a computer or to a phone or tablet the big jump going from 60 to 70 d was a lot of auto focus features specifically in video mode so the face tracking and things like that and the ad also brings those back so you can touch on the screen and change focus between different things in the frame which is really really helpful the built-in microphone is actually

brought back to the front it was placed on top here in the 7th ed for some reason so it's back towards the front like it is on the 6th ed in the 8th ed you have a maximum higher iso so you're going to get a little bit better low-light performance or at least the ability to shoot more stuff in low light even if there is a lot of noise and then they announced three new pieces of equipment they announced a new kit lens that has a nano usm autofocus system so it's really really fast at autofocusing compared to the 18-135 kit lens that came with the camera before it so if you're just able to afford that the camera body and one lens then you'll have better autofocus ability with that lens now an accessory that they just announced as well is the p ze one power zoom adapter this thing sits on the bottom of your camera underneath the lens and you can use a motorized zoom feature instead of having to hand change the zoom and it makes it really smooth looking and you can also change the speed so it zooms slower or faster and I don't really ever zum wohl i'm recording i rarely rarely do that maybe maybe i've done in maybe 10 times but for certain types of things if something's happening and you need to zoom in on it it's going to be better if it's a little bit smoother so that is about a hundred fifty dollars and then this next thing really surprised me you get a shotgun microphone from canon which I don't know if they ever made microphones other than the ones that come in their cameras but this is actually a shotgun microphone that you

can put on top and a hot or cold shoe plug it into the microphone jack on dslr and it's about two hundred fifty dollars that's the dm be one shotgun microphone from canon now the zoom adapter and the chocolate microphone or separate so that's additional money you're going to have to spend but a little over a thousand dollars for the atd you are getting some upgraded features if you need the slow mo if you want more auto focus points you want this this new lens there aren't that many new changes to the ad d over the 70d though there are a bunch of things that in my opinion are missing that should be added and i'm not sure why they're not 4k video most of cannons competition around this one thousand dollar price range have 4k video now for panasonic sony other companies you don't have any flat picture profiles so you're not going to get can log on this if you're going to want to use this and then create it with cinematic color correcting your grading later you're not going to get that you're not gonna get focused peeking you're not going to get zebra exposure warnings to know when you have your highlights blown out you're not going to get a clean hdmi output from this where you could then record the signal on an extra recorder without the interface and everything else in there so this is still just ate what I would consider not entry level because it's not in the t series or in the rebel series so it's in the mid-range dslrs and you actually do get some new features from the 7th ed but i'm

thinking if you're saving hundreds of dollars to go 70d vs a td you probably don't need to upgrade to a td unless you want extra focus points the slow mo maybe really want that headphone jack those would be reasons that I would upgrade but at that point you're going to be able to save a few hundred dollars probably to get a 7th ed second hand or just a new one that's been on the market for a while and put that money in the lenses or audio or lighting or some other some other grouping so that's my recommendation and comparison of the new candidate ed that they just announced and the canon 70d i'm biased towards video stills wise little better with more megapixels and autofocus points but i hope you figure out which one you're in the market for or maybe it convinced you to go somewhere else and get some 4k or some other more dedicated video features like peeking and zebras and things like that so i've been caleb logic of diy video guy and i'll see another one thanks so much for watching this video you can click like below or comment on this video to let us know what you think as well as subscribe to the youtube channel to learn more about how to make better videos you can also check out our gear playlist where we do reviews of video audio and lighting equipment as well as unboxings and to check out a full review of the canon c100 mark to one of their entry-level cinema cameras you can click right here
