Canon has announced the EOS 80D, the successor to very capable EOS 70D that, notably, introduced Dual Pixel autofocus. The 80D brings some marked improvements to Canon's mid-market, enthusiast line, including a new 45-point AF module and updated Dual Pixel AF.

Body-wise, the 80D remains very similar to the 70D, which means a polycarbonate exterior with water and dust resistance. A few things have changed: the Q and Playback buttons on the back have shrunk, a headphone socket has been added, the remote port has been moved downward, and the stereo microphones have been relocated from the top of the camera (near the hot shoe) to the front, with wider separation (note the four small holes just left of the EOS 80D logo). Furthermore, the 80D now has a mirror vibration control system similar to the 5DS and 7D Mark II.

Best video:
H.264 QuickTime MOV 1080/30p, 25p, 24p; MP4: 1080/60p, 30p

Well, you may find it a painful experience to import H.264 video files from Canon 80D to Windows Movie Maker for editing.

The problem lies in that Windows Movie Maker can not support the H.264 codec, not the .mov extension and editing and playing are not the same thing. So the simple change of the file extention means nothing to the problem. Another reason for the impressive video image quality of Canon’s EOS digital SLRs is their use of the sophisticated H.264 compression method for recording video files to the camera’s memory card. This is an ideal file type for video capture in an SLR camera, delivering relatively compact file sizes with image quality noticeably superior to alternate video compressions (such as Motion JPEG). So, how to get Windows Movie Maker work perfectly with EOS 80D 1080p .mov clips?

In order to ingest Canon EOS 80D video files into Windows Movie Maker for smooth editing, the easy workaround is to transcode Canon H.264 MOV to a more editing-friendly format, such a Windows Movie Maker’s WMV.
