EOS 800D vs 77D vs 80D

5 months 1 day ago #636855 by Gracanin
Hi all,
I've been thinking of buying a DSLR for some time, but can't decide which one to get. I am new to photography and mostly intend to do nature and architecture photography as well as time lapses and hyper lapses. My budget for the camera is around 700€.
I have narrowed it down to EOS 800D, 77D and 80D but have a few different options:
- EOS 800D with 18-55mm (480€) or with 18-135mm (630€),
- EOS 77D with 18-55mm (570€) or with 18-135mm (700€),
- EOS 80D with 18-55mm (715€).
I will do some traveling in India in August but the weight of the camera isn’t a concern to me. Although I’m new to photography I don’t intend to use auto mode all the time and intend to shot in RAW.
Which of the cameras should I get?
Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

You should go read comments on Amazon regarding the 77D vs. 80D. They're essentially the same camera, with controls rearranged.

The 800D is a T7i, entry level.

We can't tell you what is best for you (because, frankly, it's a Nikon) and glass of a certain importance. You haven't mentioned post, which will impact your budget, too.

That said, if you have the ability, and expect to be serious (which you really don't know yet) then the 77D or 80D is the better choice, and will serve you sell for quite some time.

But you need need to figure this out for yourself.
