The Canon EOS 90D SLR replaces the EOS 80D and is equipped with a new processor in addition to a more defined 32.5 Mpx sensor. In addition to this extra power, the EOS 90D fills a certain gap with the advent of tropicalization.

With the EOS 90D, Canon marks a major evolution of the EOS 80D and the progress is not negligible. So we can count on fast autofocus, effective face detection or even a construction designed to withstand bad weather. Of course, the increase in the number of pixels should not be forgotten. Despite everything, certain shortcomings are clearly felt, especially regarding the quality of JPEGs or the increase in sensitivity that could be improved. 4K/UHD brings advantages, but is also a bit shy in terms of quality. Finally, the real strength of the EOS 90D lies in its highly successful reflex positioning, which will appeal to optical vision enthusiasts. The ergonomics are very good and the case seems ready to accompany you everywhere.

An alternative

With the EOS 850D, Canon wanted to merge two cameras (the 77D and the 800D). The operation is without surprise and results in a very classic and unpretentious affair. For those looking for an SLR camera that is easy to use and still delivers decent performance, the 850D is a good choice. For others who are more demanding and want to improve their photography without spending more, hybrid bodies such as the Sony A6100 or the Fujifilm X-T200 may be more interesting. However, they are more complex to understand than this 850D.
