Canon EOS-80D vs Sony A6300 Camera Comparison

Canon EOS-80D vs Sony A6300 camera comparison

I have just returned from my High Arctic Photo Tour testing the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II camera in the cold and sometimes damp Svalbard archipelago, deep inside the Arctic circle. Once again, I am impressed by the new body but now I have to take some time to get back to the daily routine, process the photos and get ready for my next trip to further test the camera in a different part of the world and environment.

The Arctic is melting fast, at least in the summer time. Global warming is real and worrisome, especially for some Arctic wildlife, like the Polar bears, which depends almost entirely on sea ice for its survival. You can see my equipment bag and more of my works on

The Canon EOS-80D camera was announced in February, together with the updated EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens, equipped with new Nano USM technology. It may be the best EOS-XXD camera so far but for those who shoot primarily sports or wildlife photography, I recommend the EOS-7D Mark II camera instead.

DigitalRev compared the EOS-80D to the Sony A6300 with the video below and comes with the usual bit of levity. The eternal question, DSLR vs Mirrorless cameras, which is better?  How does Sony mirrorless bodies compare to Canon and Nikon DSLRs?
