To help you frame your ideal shot, the EOS 800D camera has an optical viewfinder that lets you see exactly what the lens sees. Equipped with a convenient 45-point all cross-type autofocus system*, the optical viewfinder helps ensure you can quickly get a subject in focus, regardless of its movement or where it is in the frame. Simply compose the photo you want and the autofocus will quickly lock on. With virtually no lag between what you see and the image you get when you press the shutter, you can get the shot you want, when you want.
* The number of AF points, cross-type AF points and Dual cross-type AF points vary depending on the lens used.
Once you’ve lined up the shot you want using Live View on the LCD touchscreen, there’s virtually no wait for the camera to focus thanks to the EOS 800D’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF which helps deliver the world’s fastest autofocusing speed at 0.03 sec.^^ Equipped with phase-detection, it can quickly and accurately determine how far away an object is and where the lens should focus, and offers fast, smooth and precise autofocus that stays locked onto your subject, even if your subject is in motion, for both photos and videos. Dual Pixel CMOS AF helps ensure your results are sharp, keeps the time it takes to lock focus onto your subject to a minimum and smoothly maintains focus where you want it.

The EOS 800D camera features a Vari-angle Touch Screen 3.0-inch ClearView LCD II monitor with a touch-sensitive screen that can be ideal for composing and reviewing your photos. Tap the screen during Live View while taking photos or videos and thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the EOS 800D will quickly snap focus to that location in the image. Two-finger touch gestures can be used for zooming or changing images after you’ve taken them, and menu and quick control settings can be accessed quickly and easily. To keep the 1.04 million dot display bright, clear and easily viewable with minimal glare, the LCD monitor is constructed to help minimize reflections and treated with smudge-resistant coating.
The EOS 800D camera features a convenient new user interface called Feature Assistant. Both simple and advanced camera features are explained with easy-to-understand graphics and descriptions, letting you explore how different camera settings affect the image. Learn how shutter speed can “pause” fast motion, for example, or how aperture priority can help give you a smooth, artistically-blurred background. To suit your shooting style, a simple tap on the screen can switch between Feature Assistant, shooting mode or Canon’s traditional User Interface (UI).
A shaky video can make even the best content hard to watch. The EOS 800D camera features Movie Electronic IS^^^ to help minimize the blurring effect of camera shake. When enabled and used with a compatible Canon lens, Movie Electronic IS adds 5-axis stabilization in the horizontal, vertical and rotational planes. The result? Smooth Full HD movies for your friends and family to enjoy.
^^^ Movie Electronic IS cannot be used with the following lenses: EF 50mm F1.2L USM, EF 85mm F1.2L II USM, EF 200mm F2L IS USM, EF 300mm F2.8L IS II USM, EF 400mm F2.8L IS II USM, EF 500mm F4L IS II USM, EF 600mm F4L IS II USM, EF 800mm F5.6L IS USM, EF 200–400mm F4L IS USM.
HDR photos can capture dynamic scenes that have vibrant, natural color with bright details. HDR Movie Mode helps you do the same with videos, with less blown-out highlights and more rich and colorful movies. A video of a sunset, for example, could have the sun and colorful sky, along with the shadowy landscape below, all with color and detail throughout the frame.
For even more creative options, Time-Lapse Movie mode condenses long stretches of time into shorter videos (minimum settable shutter speed of 1/25). Watch how traffic varies at an intersection over the course of rush hour, or how the moon moves across the sky at night.
The EOS 800D camera comes with a number of different creative filters that are available as presets and can be previewed before shooting. Effects for still images include Art Bold, Water Painting and Fisheye effect, while effects for video include Dream, Old Movies and Memory. Express or enhance the mood of a scene and make photography with the EOS 800D even more fun with creative filters.
To help you get multiple images of a fast-moving subject and help ensure you capture the moment you want, the EOS 800D camera is capable of taking up to 6.0 frames per second. Whether you’re capturing a kitten pouncing on a toy or your friends skiing on a winter trip, the EOS 800D can take the shot and stay locked on throughout the action.
