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...

In Fine Detail: 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...

Class-leading 50.6MP image resolution Pleasing out-of-camera colors, particularly skintones 61-point AF system with 41 cross-type points 5 dual cross-type, high precision points offer uncanny precision with newer lenses 150,000-pixel RGB+IR metering...

Raw dynamic range limited compared to peers Base ISO images can be noisier than the best of the competition Low light performance limited compared to peers ISO cap of 12,800 (6400 for Auto ISO) feels arbitrary and limiting JPEGs not as sharp or...

Canon EOS 5DS

 

Canon's EOS 5DS D-SLR has a high-resolution sensor that filters out color moiré, but it sacrifices a little detail in the process.

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. Optical low-pass filter detracts from detail. Omits in-camera Wi-Fi and GPS. Lacks built-in flash.

Conclusions If you're a Canon shooter after a high-resolution, full-frame body, you've got two choices. The 5DS is the better choice if you often shoot subjects where color moiré can be an issue. These include fashion photographers who photograph...

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 sharpens its image with 50MP EOS 5DS R (hands-on)

 

With 50-megapixel resolution and anti-aliasing-filter cancellation, you'd expect the 5DS R to be the sharpest Canon yet. Take a look at what a preproduction sample of the camera yielded.

Canon hits 50 -- megapixels, that is

 

The company's new 5DS and 5DS R full-frame dSLRs are its bid to compete with cheaper medium-format models.

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

 

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...
