Canon EOS 80D DSLR Officially Announced with 24MP Sensor

Canon has officially announced its prosumer DSLR camera; the EOS 80D with a newly developed 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor.

The Canon EOS 80D is a new mid-range DSLR camera designed for capturing stills and video. The EOS 80D features a  24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 processor, alongside a new 45 all cross-type point AF system, native ISO 100-16,000 range, expandable to ISO 25,600, and fast responsive 7fps shooting rate.

Canon claims its new AF module, a notable improvement over the 70D’s 19-point system, is capable of focusing in low light conditions down to -3EV at the center point. Dual Pixel AF now offers continuous focus, and all pixels are able to perform phase detection focus while being used for still imaging. Video recording is offered at an improved 1080/60p.
