Personally I would stay away from any Canon cam for video, as even the 80D does not have great video, no non PRO 4khd, Canon saves 'decent to great' video for their Pro cinema lines-buy a used C100. said that 80D video is no better than the 5DII, IOW, 5 yrs behind or some such, worse of all brands! does like the Pro line, especially how good the color rendition is, so not anti Canon, just tell it like it is.

I would think there are P&S and some M43 that are your best bet, stay away from Canon unless you have a good reason - lots of lens for one.

BTW, the best video from a NON Dual-Pixel cam is the crop mode using MagicLantern (causes a 3x magnification of lens), for any Canon cam supported, it also allows much higher bit rates than standard. There are Raw vid modes but too much work for a small gain - except for the 5D II/III.


The M2 and 70D both have the 3X crop mode built in natively. The downside is you end up using a sensor area similar to a 1/1.7" sensor compact camera.

But you do not get to set the bit rate of capture, only via ML, and no you use the 1920x1080 center set of pixels of your sensor, whichever sensor you use in your ML supported cam, and which in the case of Canon video will have MUCH less artifacts and moire, etc.

But best bet is stay far and away from non Pro Canon for video, unless just youtube!
