I just recently purchased my canon 80D to add to my collection. HF-R40, G40 (and some other older non-video DSLR cameras).
The touchscreen is amazing, its is seriously the TOP feature followed by Dual-pixel autofocus etc etc etc.
But I'm stumped as to why the touchscreen switches off when you connect HDMI monitor/TV for reviewing for live-viewing.
I use my little 7" portable screen on my other "cheap" consumer video cameras, but to find it switches off my 80D touchscreen is a big mis-step.
for the life of me, I cannot find an option in the menus to address this, unless someone knows of something i need to switch on/off that leads to switching the option on somewhere....
Will this be fixed in an up-and-coming firmware update? I personally see this as must-have fix especially for video which i believe is the drive behind this camera.
