80D2

Earlier today, we shared a collection of leaked images that showed off Canon’s upcoming EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS lens and an accompanying Canon Power Adapter. Now, an all new leak has come to fruition, showing off the very camera that this new lens will likely be paired with as a kit lens, the Canon EOS 80D.

Alongside the leaked images, which (once again) were discovered by Digicame-info, a plethora of specs have also been teased. There’s one notable omission though—4K video footage, a feature that has been highly anticipated in Canon’s mid-range DSLR lineup.

80D1

Inside, the camera is expected to have a 24.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor capable of firing off 7 frames per second, a slight increase in resolution compared to the 70D’s 20 megapixel sensor, but the same framerate. The ISO range is said to be between 100–16,000, a one-stop increase from the 70D’s maximum (non-extended) ISO of 12,800.

As for video, it’s believed the 80D will capture 1080p video at 60 frames per second. Driving the lens, both for video and stills is a Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus system that has 45 cross type points for fast and smooth focus.

80D3

On the rear of the camera, not much changes, with a similar, if not identical, 3-inch touchscreen LCD display that’s capable of fully articulating.

The camera will have built-in WiFi and NFC capabilities, as did its predecessor.

The official announcement should be just around the corner, so we’ll be sure to keep you up to date when it officially drops.
