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. Visible through the viewfinder, the crop modes deliver outstanding results, with stills at 19 megapixels even when cropped to 1.6x.
Dual DIGIC 6 processors provide the rapid performance and responsiveness. Both processors are designed to manage huge levels of image data from the 50.6 MP sensor, whilst simultaneously reducing image noise and providing the freedom to shoot at five frames per second.
Exceptional autofocusing and image tracking
The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R feature an advanced 61-point AF system, with 41 cross-type points, delivering image sharpness and accuracy across the frame. Both cameras comfortably maintain focus with moving subjects, using EOS Intelligent Tracking and Recognition AF (iTR) to track both faces and colour.
To reduce image blur, a Mirror Vibration Control System uses cams to drive the reflex mirror up and down in a highly controlled fashion, avoiding sudden stops and softening the shutter-release sound.
Additionally, a 150k pixel RGB+IR metering sensor with Flicker Detection ensures images can be captured with consistent and accurate exposures under varying lighting scenarios, including florescent.
Incredible detail and unrestricted creativity
The EOS 5DS and 5DS R include a number of customisable modes and settings. A new Fine Detail Picture Style maximises the level of detail that can be achieved from the sensor, enabling advanced sharpness adjustment without the need for editing software.
Popular creative modes, including Multiple Exposure and HDR, provide instant, in-camera creativity, while a built-in timer allows you to shoot over long periods and create time lapse videos without being tied to the camera or needing advanced software or additional kit.
Professional construction, customisable features
The EOS 5DS and 5DS R have been constructed to allow you to operate quickly, regardless of the environment. The 100% viewfinder with electronic overlay makes framing vital shots easy and can be customised to your preferred style. The large, 8.11cm (3.2 inch) Clear View II LCD screen, with an anti-reflective structure, minimises reflection or glare when reviewing shots and also acts as a visual and accessible dashboard of the most commonly used settings. A new Custom Quick Control screen means that the type, size and position of icons are also easily customisable to the user or shooting scenario.
Both cameras utilise Canon’s iconic design DNA – a highly durable body constructed from high-grade magnesium alloy to provide weather resilient shooting – ideal for landscape photographers who are dedicated to getting the perfect shot, whatever the weather.
EOS 5DS R: Engineered for the ultimate in DSLR image quality
The EOS 5DS R features a low-pass cancellation filter to ensure the sharpest possible results. Great for landscape photographers, where patterns are organic, the camera’s low-pass cancellation filter produces a stunning level of detail.
