Canon 5DS R

 

The Canon 5DS R may seem like the natural successor to the ageing Canon 5D Mark III. But it's not.

Incredible detail ; Great build and handling ; Excellent AF performance

Limited video modes ; Narrow native ISO range ; Very limited wireless features

Canon EOS 5DS

 

The Canon EOS 5DS is a natural follow-up to the three-year-old 5D MKIII, a legendary model beloved of many photographers. However, this isn't a wholesale replacement, and isn't even the better performer in every single respect.

Canon EOS 5DS review

 

The megapixels war just stepped up a notch

Top notch image quality ; Improved build to reduce vibrations ; Swift and accurate focusing

Maximum 12,800 ISO ; The 5D Mark III is better for video

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

Canon EOS 5DS review: Resolution revelation

 

Canon had dilly-dallied around the resolution conundrum for what seemed like an eternity. "Push beyond 22-megapixels? Golly, no way" was pretty much the message for years. And then it goes and releases a 50.6-megapixel full-frame DSLR, the EOS 5DS. The...

Hugely impressive image quality (when matched with best lenses and suitable shutter speeds)

No tilt/vari-angle screen, not the best for fast-moving subjects (high shutter speeds essential)

The Canon EOS 5DS is a specialist DSLR, that's for sure, but treated with knowledge and it's a tool to truly challenge medium format. In short, it'll be the studio workhorse that Canon users have been waiting for - perhaps waiting too long, which is...

Hands-on: Canon EOS 5DS review: Canon breaks the megapixel bank with 50.6MP full-frame DSLR - Pocket-lint

 

An ultra-high resolution Canon DSLR had been rumoured for some time, but with the company adamant that its cameras wouldn't exceed the 22-megapixel count,

Canon EOS 5DS review

 

The 50Mp Canon 5DS and 5DS R set a new standard for DSLR photography

Full frame sensor, huge detail ; Excellent AF, exposure and white balance ; Extensive features and accessories

Huge file sizes ; Fast shutter speeds or a sturdy tripod and mirror lock-up essential to get the best from the sensor ; No Wi-Fi built-in

The Canon 5DS and 5DS R are superb cameras that resolve a huge amount of detail, beating even 50Mp medium format cameras. A new benchmark has been set. Before you commit to the investment, however, make sure that you have lenses that can match the camera.

Canon 5Ds review

 

A 50-megapixel sensor in a beautifully designed camera, but the Canon EOS 5Ds risks being a niche product.

Sadly, though, Canon doesn't offer bespoke camera designs to order. The 5Ds is what it is, and for the most part, it's extremely successful. If the 50-megapixel resolution appeals and you're willing to sacrifice a little performance, battery life and...

Canon EOS 5DS / EOS 5DS R

 

Rivalling the resolution of “medium format” digital cameras, the impressive 50.6MP full frame CMOS sensor of the Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R (with low pass cancellation filter) can deliver 5fps full resolution still images, and Full HD 1080p videos at...
