Re: Step up from the 70D?

I've rented 80d, as an upgrade to my 70d. It's got better focus tracking and handles low light a little better. Put a pancake lens and it super light and small for gimbal work.There is also the Canon XC10 thats always mention as a cheap b camera for c100.

I'd stay with Canon otherwise the look will be different.

Are you using the Canon EF-S 10-18mm image stabilized ultra-wide lens? It's under $300 and tailor made for what you're doing.
Adding a bit to what Chris said. If yo want to see that 10-18 in use, watch any of the DVINFO.NET NAB coverage with my name on it. I use the 70D with the 10-18 as it makes an excellent choice for close work in the smaller booths.

I was hoping we would have already seen a successor to the 80D by now. I’m kind of waiting on a 4K offering from Canon at this point.
