EOS 5DS and 5DS R offer 50.6 megapixel resolution

Canon is transforming the EOS system with the arrival of the EOS 5DS and the EOS 5DS R – a new breed of ultra-high resolution full-frame DSLRs. Breaking the boundaries of 35mm sensors, the new cameras offer the highest megapixels ever seen in a full-frame sensor, an astonishing 50.6 MP.

When nothing but the sharpest image is required, the EOS 5DS R also features a low-pass cancellation filter to maximise the sensor’s resolution and visible image quality.

Establishing new standards for full-frame DSLRs

The new cameras provide the flexibility to shoot a wide range of scenes and subjects, making them ideal for large format mediums, such as advertising billboards and magazine covers, where every pixel matters. The sensor’s advanced architecture provides ISO 100-6400 sensitivity, expandable to 50-12800, ensuring high quality images with low noise, accurate colours and wide dynamic range.

For added flexibility, the resolution enables three in-camera crop shooting modes – 1.3x, 1.6x and 1:1.…

Two new entry level cameras: EOS 750D and 760D

Canon has announced two new cameras in its entry-level EOS line-up. The EOS 750D is ideal if you are looking to capture images and Full HD movies with the assurance of automatic shooting modes. The EOS 760D gives enthusiast photographers more creative freedom and manual controls.

Both cameras use a powerful new 24.2MP sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor. The ISO 100-12,800 range delivers detailed results even in low light. In addition, Flicker Detection technology, first found in the EOS 7D Mark II, provides consistently exposed images under artificial light for even greater flexibility.

Continuous shooting of 5 frames per second, together with a powerful 19 cross-type AF point system, help to capture fast-moving subjects.
