Reasons For

No data 5 Reasons For
17% higher megapixel Edit
The Canon EOS 80D has a megapixel of 24.2MP, however the Canon EOS 7D Mark II is only a 20.2MP digital camera (4MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Smaller closest focusing distance Edit
The Canon EOS 80D is a 0.25m closest focusing distance digital camera. That's 0.14m smaller than the Canon EOS 7D Mark II (0.25m).
Touchscreen Edit
The Canon EOS 80D has a touchscreen, but the Canon EOS 7D Mark II does not have a touchscreen.
27% lighter Edit
The Canon EOS 80D is a 650g digital camera. That's 170g lighter than the Canon EOS 7D Mark II (650g). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Two hundred and ninety more battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The Canon EOS 80D is a digital camera that takes 960.00 battery life (CIPA standard), whereas the Canon EOS 7D Mark II only takes 670.00 battery life (CIPA standard). Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.
