On the 80D, when manual mode is selected, and you are using the info screen (in the shooting functions settings) as is the OP, both the shutter and F-stop are highlighted and the top dial adjusts the one, while the back dial adjusts the other. Both are highlighted as in the OP's picture.

 

 


That is different from how every other type of Canon DSLR body that I have used.  I have used a Rebel, M-Series, every fulll frame series.  I have used 80D bodies but only briefly, and never noticed that difference.  The real time exposure display on the rear LCD is very useful.  It is far more convenient than the top LCD when using a tripod.  

 

Nikon bodies seem unable to allow you to do this.  Anytime you press the shutter, it blanks the display, and there is never an option to turn that off.  I have one Nikon body, a D3, and it is not able to do it.

 


My 5DIV and 6D also have this feature, but the aperature and shutter speed are shown in a box, not highlighted. You can still adjust both though, using the shooting functions settings screen.

Exactly.  Every Canon DSLR seems able to do it.  But, the exposure parameters are not highlighted like that.  Oh, well.

 

Speaking of a 5D4.  Press the [MENU] button once to display the menu system.  Now press [Q] several times.  Neat, huh?

Doing that, takes you to the first page of each menu with each press. There are lots of things to learn about in the cameras that are not always obvious or covered in the manual.
