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

 

The 50-megapixel models in Canon's EOS 5D series of full-frame cameras aren't expected to ship until June, but Canon released some preproduction versions, one of which I got to shoot with for a couple of weeks. According to Canon, the photo quality...

Stay tuned for a full review of both when I get my hands on them.

Canon hits 50 -- megapixels, that is

 

In the US, Canon expects to charge $3,700 for the 5DS and $3,900 for the 5DS R. They're currently available for preorder in Australia for AU$5,000 and AU$5,300, respectively, and the official prices in the UK are £3,000 and £3,200.

There's a ridiculous amount of pixel peeping in this camera's future.

Review: Canon EOS 5DS

 

Nikon has been the king of the DSLR pixel count since its splendid 36MP D800 and D810.

A fantastic piece of kit that any pixel-peeping DSLR owner will get heaps of enjoyment out of.

[REVIEW–CANON EOS 5Ds]

 

This digital single lens reflex's claim to fame is its 50 megapixel sensor. The body is much the same as the 5D MkIII but with some differences. Canon stresses that stability is important with such high resolution and to that end they have strengthened...

In spite of being advised by Canon to use a tripod we went boldly about with the 5Ds and two Canon lenses without stabilisation and had no difficulty getting stellar results. Putting the camera on a tripod possibly improved sharpness but there is a...

If you are content with the old-fashioned DSLR form then there is nothing to dislike

For photographers looking for medium format resolution in the more portable DSLR form the Canon is superb (its twin is the 5DsR on which the effect of the anti-aliasing filter can be over-ridden for a little extra sharpness.) For studio use or for the...
