Hola! This week’s free write is on the Canon 80D, it is one of the newest cameras we have. It is my personal favorite when it comes to shooting interviews and filming because of all the new features. The 80D is very high tech and in this free blog I will be explaining the features and why they are so great. I will also post a video down below showing you the features and explaining a bit about them as well.
My favorite feature about this camera is the headphone jack. I believe this is the only camera in the media class with a headphone jack in the camera. Headphone jacks are made so you can listen to the audio while using a microphone, so you can make sure the microphone is working and the audio sounds great. This is very important because you may be in the middle of an interview and the mic dies or the audio is too soft or too loud. But, if you can monitor the audio you can stop the interview fix it and the interviewee hasn’t just wasted their time. There is another piece of equipment you can attach to any camera and you will be able to monitor audio, but it can also add hissing to the background. This is why I prefer the 80D because there is no hissing.
Another feature about this camera that is really cool is it’s touch screen focus. None of the other cameras we have, can do that. This is an especially good feature when you are trying to do the trick where you switch focus. That’s when you focus on one object and switch the focus while filming, to focus on another object. The focus is also really clear and the quality is great!
These are my favorite features about the Canon 80D. I use this camera every time I film. Anyways, thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed this week’s free blog. I will post a video down below, showing all the cool features about 80D. I will not be posting another blog this week, just a reminder. Bye!!
