It is rumored that Canon has been working on an EOS 90D for some time and now that marketing materials for the model appear to have been released before the announcement, we're starting to get a better idea of ​​how the model works. improvement compared to the previous one. EOS 80D.

We say "start" because none of this information has been confirmed by Canon itself, so we'll have to wait for the official release to know for sure, though judging from the released technical data sheet and promotional video of the model, " We have to put our money on these points, which are real details of what awaits us.

So, from what we can tell now, here are all the major improvements that the new model brought to the three-year-old EOS 80D.

As has long been said, the EOS 90D appears to use a new 32.5MP APS-C format sensor, which is significantly superior to the EOS 24.2D's 80MP sensor.

This gives the new model the potential to capture much more detail, although we do not yet know if the sensor will have an anti-aliasing filter. This is something that has been mounted on the EOS 80D's sensor, although the EOS 90D specs we currently have don't mention it.

Again, the sensor is the size of the standard 3: 2 image format and is preceded by a matrix of standard Bayer RGB color filters.

Like other recent Canon models, the EOS 90D uses a DIGIC 8 engine.

The EOS 90D uses a DIGIC 8 processing engine, the same one featured on a number of recent Canon models including the EOS R, PowerShot G7 Mark III X and EOS Rebel SL3 / EOS 250D. This gives the camera superior performance to the EOS 80D, which used the old DIGIC 6 engine, which we'll take a look at individually below.

So far Canon has only outfitted three of its DSLR cameras with 4K video recording, namely the EOS 5D Mark IV, the EOS 1D X Mark II, and the latest EOS Rebel SL3 / EOS 250D, though it also integrated it in its mirrorless models the EOS M50 and the EOS RP.

The best setting for the EOS 80D is Full HD support at 60 frames per second. However, now that we have a model as affordable as the EOS Rebel SL3 / 250D with 4K capabilities, it's no surprise that 4K is included here.

The EOS 90D is capable of producing 4K UHD footage at 30 / 25p, and the disclosed data sheet indicates that Full HD recording at 120p is also available.

Canon EOS 90D vs. Canon EOS 80D: Burst speed

The EOS 80D records images at a respectable 7 frames per second, but thanks to the additional processing power within the EOS 90D, the new model accelerates up to 10 frames per second faster when using the viewfinder.

Based on the promo video, it appears that this 10fps mode also allows the user to follow topics or keep focus on that of the first image.

The datasheet states that when using live view, the maximum burst speed can reach 11 ips, always in One Shot or AI Servo mode.

Canon EOS 90D vs Canon EOS 80D: Multi-controller

It seems that the multi-controller present in many other EOS organizations is coming to the EOS 90D.

It seems that the multi-controller present in many other EOS organizations is coming to the EOS 90D.

Manufacturers are releasing new cameras without this kind of joystick-like control and as autofocus systems become more sophisticated, it is expected to be in all cameras, its capabilities now exceed simple focus point setting. The EOS 80D has lost this feature, but it looks like the EOS 90D will be equipped with it.

Canon EOS 90D vs Canon EOS 80D: metering sensor

New 220,000k sensor upgrades previous 7,560-pixel alternative

The EOS 90D appears to be Canon's first EOS digital SLR camera to use a 220,000 pixel RGB + IR sensor. The datasheet explains in more detail that it takes readings of 216 zones to calculate correct exposure and that it also facilitates operations like autofocus tracking.

This can be more accurate than the EOS 80D sensor, which uses 7.560 pixels and divides the scene into 63 segments to do the same. By the way, it's not as fancy as Canon - the EOS-1D X Mark II uses a 360,000 pixel RGB + IR sensor to do the same.

What has not changed?

Although it seems that we see a lot of news in the EOS 90D, a large part also seems to be shared between the two models, from the smart viewfinder with approx. 100% coverage and a 45-point all-in-one AF system up to a 3-inch vari-angle touchscreen with 1.04 million points. The camera also uses the same EF-S lens mount, which accepts both EF and EF-S lenses, which means there is one factor to consider. 1.6x framed. It also seems compatible with the same BG-E14 battery grip that works with the EOS 80D.

Canon EOS 90D vs Canon EOS 80D: face detection

Face detection… in the viewfinder?

Will the EOS 90D allow face detection when using the viewfinder? This isn't possible on the EOS 80D, but the video above seems to suggest that the new metering sensor makes it an option on the EOS 90D.

Canon EOS 90D vs Canon EOS 80D: eye detection autofocus

Although the 45-point cross-type AF system on the EOS 90D appears to be the same as on the 80D, continuous focus eye detection appears to be set on the EOS 90D. This is an area that manufacturers are putting a lot of effort into right now. So it's not a big surprise to see that mentioned in the video.

Canon EOS 90D vs Canon EOS 80D: wireless connectivity

The EOS 80D has arrived with built-in Wi-Fi and NFC, allowing users to remotely control the camera and upload images and videos via a wireless connection.

As expected, it seems that Wi-Fi has been kept for the new model, which is now paired with Bluetooth, which the 80D EOS does not have. We can't be sure, but it appears that the NFC has been removed from the EOS 90D because it does not appear anywhere in the disclosed data sheet. Such an approach is consistent with the actions taken by other manufacturers such as Panasonic, which has also abandoned it to newer models.

Canon EOS 90D vs Canon EOS 80D: battery life

Although the EOS 90D and EOS 80D use the same LP-E6N battery, battery life has increased dramatically with the new model.

While the EOS 80D can generate approximately 960 images per charge, the promo video indicates that the EOS 90D can handle 1,300 frames per charge, which represents, at least in part, one more processing engine. effective.

How is compared? The camera's closest rival is probably the Nikon D7500, which promises 950 images per charge. Even the Nikon D500, which will likely cost a lot more than the EOS 90D, can handle just 1.240 shots.

However, there is some confusion here, as the datasheet indicates that the EOS 90D is capable of producing 1,860 images per charge. The video clearly shows that 1.300 correspond to the CIPA classification. Therefore, 1860 may only be possible using a power saving mode.

Canon EOS 90D vs Canon EOS 80D: build quality

The EOS 90D appears to have been designed with a water and dust resistant body.

The EOS 90D appears to have been designed with a water and dust resistant body.

One thing that might not be that easy to appreciate is the build quality, especially the modifications Canon seems to have made to the newer model to ensure strength and better protection against the elements.

The EOS 80D was designed with a polycarbonate resin shell mixed with glass fibers, while the EOS 90D appears to use an aluminum alloy in addition to these. This is often used in models of this type and can offer better protection.

The EOS 80D already offered resistance to dust and humidity. This appears to continue on the EOS 90D, in part due to the tightness of the areas around the battery compartment, lens mount, and viewfinder, but also because of the use of high-precision part gaps between the components.

Canon EOS 90D vs Canon EOS 80D: UHS-II compliant

This is a detail we noticed on the leaked datasheet rather than the video. The EOS 80D and EOS 90D accept the same types of SD cards, from the old vanilla SD types to the current examples of SDHC and SDXC.

However, one of the main advantages of the EOS 90D is that it supports the UHS-I and UHS-II formats of SDHC and SDXC cards, rather than the only UHS-I cards taken supported by the EOS 80D. This gives you a theoretical advantage over data transfer rates.

Canon EOS 90D vs Canon EOS 80D: weight

The EOS 80D appears to be the same size but slightly heavier than the EOS 90D

There is practically no difference in size between the two models, the EOS 80D measures 139.0 x 105.2 x 78.5mm and the EOS 90D, depending on the leakage, measures 140.7 x 104.8 x 76,8mm.

However, the EOS 90D is lighter. With its battery and memory card in place, the device weighs around 701g, against 730g for the EOS 80D.
