As well as being compared against other entry-level DSLRs, the Canon EOS 80D is also often compared to pro DSLRs, mirrorless and super zooms. The Canon EOS 80D's top rivals come from Nikon (such as the D7200 and the D5600) and Canon (such as the EOS M50 (EOS Kiss M) and the EOS Rebel T6s)

compared toEntry-level DSLR competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon EOS 80D compared to other entry-level DSLR competitors include: it records higher quality movies (1080p @ 60fps vs 1080p @ 30fps), slightly larger viewfinder (0.59x vs 0.54x), has a touch screen, has a weather sealed body and shoots faster continuously (7 fps vs 5 fps).

However, on average it has a significantly smaller screen (3" vs 3.2"), has a slightly lower resolution screen (1,040k dots vs 1,228k dots), is slightly larger (professional size (139×105×79 mm) vs prosumer size (124×99×76 mm)), doesn't have a built-in GPS and has fewer storage slots (1 vs 2).
