There are so many options when choosing a camera body, and for most the price tag plays a huge factor. Understanding what your plans are for shooting and what the capabilities of each body can do will help to determine if that hefty price tag if worth saving up for.
Peter McKinnon enthusiastically describes just what makes the 1D X Mark II almost eight times the price of the Canon 80D. While the obvious reasons would be the frames per second (FPS) and the higher ISO, he talks us through a few details that would be help the smaller price tag seem more reasonably for the everyday shooter.
The 1D is marked at 8,000 (Canadian) for many reasons but that does not mean the 80D is not a workhorse in its own right. Take into consideration what and where you are mainly shooting and the 80D might be a perfect fit for your needs. McKinnon wrote that the intent of this video was to go over the features that make the price significantly higher over those that do not. The detail that stuck out the most to me was the need for the CFast card that has its own higher price tag. However when you are working video this will be something you will not want to skimp on.
