Canon EOS 80D Sony α Alpha A6300
22 Reasons For
Dustproof
The Canon EOS 80D is dustproof, whereas the Sony α Alpha A6300 is not.

A dustproof digital camera is one that is resistant to dust, and is sealed so that dust and sand can't get into the lens or the mechanics.

A dustproof camera is excellent for shooting in very dry climates or dusty areas, and will prevent accidental damage that would stop a normal camera from working properly.

Smile Detection
The Canon EOS 80D features smile detection, but the Sony α Alpha A6300 does not feature this benefit.

'Smile detection' is a special mode for a digital camera that can detect when the subject is smiling, and take the photo automatically when it detects a smile.

Automatic smile detection makes it easy to capture the perfect moment in a photo, and means you won't miss a brief smile due to poor reflexes.

Read more Read less | Edit
