Whereas the 70D could record full HD 1080p resolution video at up to 30fps, the 80D is going up to 60fps. The 80D uses a DIGIC 6 processor and provides a native ISO range in stills shooting from 100-16,000, expandable to 25,600. Burst shooting at up to 7 fps is also on par with the 70D. The 80D covers approximately 100% in the optical viewfinder. and comes equipped with a and a fully articulated 3-inch touchscreen LCD that is incredibly versatile thanks to the variable-angle hinge, allowing the screen to flip out.
