Canon 80D Cinematic Video Test

  • A short sequence I put together using the 80D on a bright sunny day at the park. Really surprised with the dynamic range this DSLR can pull off given its price range. With 60fps for slow-motion and a flat picture profile installed, I would say the Canon 80D isn't too bad when you're trying to achieve the cinematic look with an inexpensive camera.
    This was shot 100% handheld in Manual Focus, and I've used warp stabiliser on 2-3 clips at most. To check out all the lenses I've used for this video, be sure to click on my Kit link down below for a detailed analysis! Thanks for watching, hope you enjoyed!
    Take care and go create.

    I´m sorry, but was this actually shot in 1080p? Cause to me it doesn´t look sharp at all. I know 1080p isn´t 4K, but it´s better than what I see here. Are you sure you didn´t export or record this in 720p?
    No intention to insult your work. The shots and composition are great

    • Julian
      Julian 6 months ago +1

      Nickoloui indeed it is. sometimes the lens costs more than the camera itself 😅
      I will check out the video ❤️

    • Nickoloui
      Nickoloui  6 months ago +2

      Julian very good question. As you may already know, shooting with good glass is even more important than resolution. This was shot with cheap canon lenses. Yes, shot and exported at 1080p. Please have a watch at my most recent test to see the difference a good lens can make in quality! Thank you for watching

      FromTheTeensMind 6 months ago +1

      Nickoloui Ah indeed I’ve seen what it can do as I have one myself :) but I also enjoyed the others. Keep up the work my friend :D

      Nickoloui  6 months ago +1

      FromTheTeensMind thanks a lot! I mainly use Premiere Pro. Be sure to check out my other most recent canon 80D video quality test as it does more justice to the camera!

    • Vet status 007
      Vet status 007 6 months ago +3

      @Nickoloui maybe you could make a video about the settings you used to achieve this look...or just make a video(video series) about the entire process including editing.😀

  • Kyle Connors
    Kyle Connors 8 months ago +2

    I’ve gotta try out that 10-18mm lens, the wide angle shots are pretty cool especially on the trees

    • Nickoloui
      Nickoloui  8 months ago

      It's one of my favourites! Recently shot a music video for a rock band and used 40% that lens! Will post about that soon.

    I love the cinematic look. Could you share the camera settings (picture profile) that you use to achieve that look. Thanks

    • Nickoloui
      Nickoloui  10 months ago +7

      Thank you! I've installed a Canon Cinestyle flat picture profile on my 80D. You can do this very simply by searching on the web or youtube "how to install canon cinestyle".
      Hope this helps!

    This is great. I'm using an 80d currently... but wow its truly amazing the difference between the 80d and higher end cameras. These shots you took would look like an actual movie if taken on a 1DX
