Is there any place that has a replacement decal for the round dial on top of my camera.(80D)?

What did they say when you called Canon technical support?

When you dial up an aperture, ISO, or a shutter speed, you use an unmarked dial and view the settings on your LCD or in the viewfinder. You can do the same with your unmarked mode dial. The decal is just point-of-sale marketing graphics.

If it were mine I’d just paint two dots on the blank dial to demarcate the only two modes that I ever use. YMMV.

——————————————————

If this decal falls off, I’ll just repaint that solitary dot onto the blank dial. When I occasionally want P-mode, I’d refer to the LCD panel.

I lost that same decal on my 80d, but managed to find it. For ten bucks your camera will look a lot better and if you ever want to sell the camera it will be a lot more appealing for the buyer.

If they have them in stock, I wouldn't be surprised if it was cheaper from Canon.

I don't know about this specific part, but there's lots of price gouging on eBay and Amazon... things being sold for far more than their list price.

When I needed a similar for a vintage camera, I just found a photo of the label online, sized it appropriately and printed it out on photo paper, laminated it, trimmed to size and glued it in place. Worked fine.

OMG! If it ships from China, and anything happens to the decal, Canon will consider it a gray market decal!!
