The Canon 80D, a $1,099.99 price tag for the performance you get makes this a great deal! This camera is versatile and can be adapted to any situation. Boasting a 24.2MP sensor, pair this puppy up with a good quality lens and you’ll be golden. I use this camera for all of my work in photography and videography. Oh, and it also supports full 1080p 60FPS video, making it capable as a professional DSLR and a quality vlogging camera.
Benefits of Manual Mode
Manual mode is pretty much explained in the name. It gives you full control of your camera’s settings, allowing you to control the exposure, ISO, and aperture on the fly. This gives you full control of your scene and how the photo will turn out. A tactic that I use to check my scene for proper lighting is to flip to the live view on the touch screen, adjust your settings until you are happy with the lighting, then you can flip back to the eyepiece and continue shooting. After learning manual mode, I no longer need to guess if my settings will produce a quality and well-lit photo.
