50.6 Megapixels! A revolution in DSLR resolution

Canon has announced the 50.6 Megapixel EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R; its highest-ever resolution cameras, offering unparalleled levels of detail never before seen in a 35mm full-frame DSLR...

The EOS 5DS is Canon’s highest resolution DSLR to date, designed to offer editorial, landscape and advertising photographers the ultimate in image size and quality thanks to the 50.6 Megapixel sensor with an optical low-pass filter.

The EOS 5DS R is the same as EOS 5DS, bar one important difference in that it incorporates a low-pass cancellation filter to offer the maximum level of sharpness from Canon’s revolutionary new sensor. Studio and advertising photographers in particular will appreciate the extra level of detail offered by the EOS 5DS R, while all photographers will relish the ability to produce stunningly detailed 8688 x 5792 images from both cameras, with A0 prints readily achievable at 200dpi.

The 50.6 Megapixel Canon CMOS sensor is the highest ever seen in a full-frame DSLR, offering photographers new levels of resolution and detail.

Revolutionary image sensor – where every pixel counts

Canon has won itself a strong reputation over the years for sensor design, innovation and image quality and this commitment to continuous development is ably demonstrated with the introduction of the 50.6 Megapixel CMOS sensor.

The sensor’s advanced architecture provides ISO 100-6400 sensitivity (expandable to 50-12,800) ensuring ultra-high resolution with low noise, accurate colours and a wide dynamic range.

For added flexibility, the cameras’ resolution enables three new in-camera crop shooting modes – 1.3x, 1.6x and 1:1. Visible through the viewfinder, the crop modes deliver outstanding, high-resolution results; still producing a 19 Megapixel still image when cropped to 1.6x.

Ultra-fast image processing

Built to withstand the most demanding of shoots, both the EOS 5DS and 5DS R feature EOS 5D Mark III weather-sealing along with Dual DIGIC 6 processors to ensure the rapid performance and responsiveness required to deliver first-class images with exceptional colour reproduction. The dual processors are built to comfortably manage huge levels of image data from the 50.6 Megapixel sensor, whilst simultaneously reducing image noise and providing the freedom to shoot at five frames per second, even with such large amounts of data being produced.

Both the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R feature a 150k pixel RGB+IR metering sensor with Flicker Detection for accurate exposures.

Stunningly fast autofocus

Designed to ensure that every detail is in focus, the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R feature an advanced 61-point AF system with 41 cross-type points, delivering incredible levels of image sharpness and accuracy across the frame. Both cameras comfortably maintain sharp and accurate focus with moving subjects, using EOS Intelligent Tracking and Recognition AF (iTR) to track both faces and colour. To reduce image blur, Canon’s advanced Mirror Vibration Control System uses miniature cams to drive the camera’s mirror up and down in a highly controlled fashion, avoiding sudden stops which cause vibration and softening the shutter-release sound in the process.

Both bodies feature a 150k pixel RGB+IR metering sensor with Flicker Detection, ensuring images can be captured with consistent and accurate exposures under varying lighting scenarios, including fluorescent strip lights.

Exceptional detail and unrestricted creativity

Putting unrivalled image quality at your fingertips, the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R include a number of customisable modes and settings to ensure stunning results every time. A new Fine Detail Picture Style maximises the level of detail that can be achieved from the sensor, by prioritising the gradation of tones and detail, 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 stunning time-lapse videos without being tied to the camera or the need for advanced software and excessive kit.

The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R feature magnesium alloy body shells, steel base plates and are weather-sealed to protect against dust and moisture.

First-class construction

The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R have been carefully crafted using Canon’s iconic design DNA. Superb ergonomics and handling based around the EOS 5D Mark III allow users to select controls quickly and accurately while a 100% viewfinder with electronic overlay makes framing vital shots easy and can be customised to your preferred style.

The large, 8.11cm (3.2in) 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 cameras’ type, size and position of icons are easily customisable to the user or shooting scenario. For simple, secure, workflows multiple card slots enable instant backup and extra storage, thus offering added flexibility.

Commenting on the launch of the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R, Mike Owen, European Professional Imaging Communications Manager, Canon Europe, said: “The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R take Canon into a whole new imaging arena, bringing medium format resolution to the award-winning EOS System with its vast range of lenses and accessories. Canon has consistently led the way with its sensor technology and this latest iteration of the CMOS sensor boasts levels of detail never before seen in an EOS body. The flexibility, reliability and ruggedness of the EOS System means that, for the first time, photographers can harness the speed of EOS with medium format levels of image resolution in almost any location, no matter how extreme. This is all possible in a product that is smaller, lighter and significantly easier to use than other cameras that offer this level of resolution.”
