Canon EOS 5DS / 5DS R In-Depth Review

 

Canon has added to its EOS 5D range with the launch of two 50MP cameras, the 5DS and the 5DS R. Both cameras are high resolution full frame models, primarily aimed at stills photographers. The only difference between the models is that the 'S' has an...

Canon EOS 5DS R review

 

For photography purists, Canon's 5DS R DSLR delivers outstanding stills at a whopping 50.6 megapixels.

In terms of camera tech, Canon is to be commended for creating a 50.6MP full-frame DSLR, so it earns our Editor’s Choice. While the near-$4,000 price tag puts it out of reach for consumers, it’s relatively affordable for the type of user this camera is...

The Canon EOS 5Ds is a professional dSLR providing and amazing 50.6-Megapixels of resolution, great performance from the dual DIGIC 6 processors and Full 1080p HD video for those looking for more than just still images. Read more in our Full Conclusion.

Canon EOS 5DS R

 

The Canon EOS 5DS R offers the most resolution you'll find in a full-frame SLR, but its high ISO capabilities are limited.

Highest resolution in class. 5fps burst shooting. Full-frame image sensor. Dual memory card slots. 61-point autofocus system. Intervalometer and time lapse support. Sharp rear display. Solid control layout. Medium and Small Raw capture modes. 1080p video.

Limited to ISO 12800. Not a true OLPF-free design. Omits in-camera Wi-Fi and GPS. Lacks built-in flash.

Conclusions Canon photographers have waited patiently for a high-resolution, full-frame camera body. The EOS 5DS R—and its near twin, the 5DS—are what the company delivered. Our tests show that the 50-megapixel image sensor may be an overkill for some...

Canon EOS 5Ds

 

When the EOS 5Ds was announced, Canon photographers around the world shouted a collective "Yes!" and "I want it!"You are looking at a pair of world record-holding DSLR cameras, the Canon EOS 5Ds along with its near-identical twin, the 5Ds R:

CPN (Canon Professional Network) calls it "A Revolution in Resolution".The Canon EOS 5Ds and 5Ds R show us a level of detail that we've never seen before in a DSLR camera.The announcement of the 5Ds and 5Ds R brought high expectations and the arrival...

Canon EOS 5Ds R

 

If you want the most extreme image resolution available in a DSLR camera and you want the sharpest images available at that resolution, the Canon EOS 5Ds R is your camera.

The 5Ds vs. 5Ds R decision is not an all or nothing one in regards to moiré.It is a more or less decision and the same regarding image sharpness.If you are shooting images of subjects that are likely to induce the moiré pattern and do not have time to...

Canon EOS 5DS R

 

Note: The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R are basically the same camera. The only differences are the 5DS R has no low-pass filter, and costs about $200 more.

Canon EOS 5DS R Review

 

The Canon EOS 5DS R is a 35mm full-frame digital SLR camera with a 50.6 megapixel sensor, the highest number of megapixels ever seen in a full frame sensor, and and a low-pass cancellation filter that maximises the sharpness of the camera's sensor (the...

The Canon EOS 5DS R delivers slightly more resolution and sharpness than the regular 5DS model at a very slight increase in the risk of producing unwanted moire effects. In reality these effects actually proved difficult to create on purpose out in the...

The Canon EOS 5Ds is a 35mm full-frame digital SLR camera with a 50.6 megapixel sensor, the highest number of megapixels ever seen in a full frame sensor. Key features include a 61-point auto focus system with 41 cross-type points, 150k pixel RGB+IR...

The Canon EOS 5Ds combines the proven design of the popular 5D Mark III with jaw-dropping image quality from the new 50.6 megapixel sensor. Slow continuous shooting speeds and a limited ISO range by modern standards means that the 5Ds certainly isn't...

Canon 5DS R Review

 

The Canon 5DS R, the highest-resolution EOS body to date, is an all-around striking camera that captures some seriously impressive, incredibly detailed photographs. The higher resolution sensor does make shooting technique more crucial though, and the...

Phenomenal resolution and sharpness; Fine Detail Picture Style is like in-camera Unsharp Mask; Excellent print quality; Decent high ISO performance; Improved normalized dynamic range compared to 5D Mark III; Decent burst speed with good buffer depths;...

AF speed tested closer to consumer-level DSLRs; Dynamic range lower than competing models from Nikon & Sony; Lack of OLPF means subject to more aliasing artifacts with some subjects; No 60p video frame rate; No headphone jack; Timelapse video is only...
