Canon EOS 5DS
Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R
Press Release: 2015-02-05
Establishing new standards for full-frame DSLRs
Setting a new benchmark for full-frame cameras, the
EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R combine fast, instinctive DSLR handling with the newly-developed 50.6 MP CMOS sensor, providing the flexibility to shoot a wide range of scenes and subjects, making it ideal for large format mediums, such as advertising billboards and magazine covers, where every pixel matters. The sensorâ€™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 camerasâ€™ resolution enables three new in-camera crop shooting modes â€“ 1.3x, 1.6x and 1:1. Visible through the viewfinder, the crop modes deliver outstanding results, with stills at 19 MP even when cropped to 1.6x.
Built to withstand the most demanding shoots, the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS Râ€™s dual DIGIC 6 processors provide the rapid performance and responsiveness required to deliver first-class images with exceptional colour reproduction. Both processors are designed to comfortably 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.
Created to ensure every detail of your exquisite landscape or high-fashion studio shoot 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 focus with moving subjects, using EOS Intelligent Tracking and Recognition AF (iTR) to track both faces and colour. To reduce image blur, Canonâ€™s Mirror Vibration Control System uses cams to drive the camerasâ€™ mirror up and down in a highly controlled fashion, avoiding all sudden stops and softening the shutter-release sound.
Additionally, the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS Râ€™s 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
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, 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 needing advanced software and excessive kit.
First-class professional construction, customisable features
The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R have been expertly constructed to allow you to operate quickly, regardless of the environment youâ€™re shooting in. The 100% viewfinder with electronic overlay makes framing vital shots easy and can be customised to your preferred style. The large, 8.11cm (3.2â€ť) 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. The camerasâ€™ 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 Canonâ€™s iconic design DNA â€“ a highly durable body constructed from high-grade magnesium alloy to provide weather resilient shooting â€“ 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
When nothing but the absolute maximum level of detail possible will do, 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 cameraâ€™s low pass cancellation filter produces the stunning level of detail required to turn a great shot into an incredible shot.
Optical Expertise: Introducing the EF 11-24mm f/4L USM
The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R are compatible with Canonâ€™s extensive EF lens range, spanning 71 modelsÂ˛. Today Canon unveils the worldâ€™s widest-angle rectilinear zoom lensÂą, the
EF 11-24mm f/4L USM. Perfect for photographers shooting landscape and architecture, the EF 11-24mm f/4L USM is designed to open up an entirely new world of creative opportunities, thanks to its super wide 11-24mm focal range. Boasting a newly designed optical structure, the lens features three aspherical lenses including a ground aspherical element, which maximises image quality and delivers minimal levels of distortion, while the body is rugged and robust enough to be employed in extreme weather conditions.
