New EOS 5DS and 5DS R from Canon

HR_5DS_5DS_R_COMBINATION_CL-2Is that right? A 50 megapixel D-SLR? That is right, Canon has announced the EOS 5DS and the EOS 5DS R – 50 megapixel full-frame D-SLR marking a new standard in high resolution D-SLR photography.

This camera is perfect for commercial and fine art photographers or if you just want the highest resolution D-SLR camera on the market this camera is for you.

Some really fun and innovated features make the EOS 5DS the ultimate combination of EOS performance and ultra-high megapixel capture. It features an advanced, 61-point High Density Reticular AF system that includes 41 cross-type AF points and EOS iTR AF for precise AF in numerous situations. An anti-flicker function helps provide consistent exposure and color during continuous shooting under certain lighting conditions, while a built-in bulb timer and intervalometer expands creative opportunities without the need for an additional remote control. A refined mirror control mechanism reduces vibration and a Time Release Lag setting minimizes camera shake for sharp image capture when using mirror lock-up. New features like a crop function of 1.3x and 1.6x and a Custom Quick Control screen are complemented by advanced, multi-featured Full HD Movie capture, with Time Lapse Movie, and much more.

With all the features and capabilities of the EOS 5DS, the EOS 5DS R camera offers the potential for even greater sharpness and fine detail for specialized situations. It features the same Canon designed and manufactured 50.6 Megapixel sensor, with the low-pass filter* (LPF) effect cancelled to provide even more fine edge sharpness and detail for critical subjects such as detailed landscapes, and other situations where getting the sharpest subject detail is a priority.

The price shocked us here at Keeble and Shuchat too, but in a good way. The 5DS is only $3,699.95 and the 5DS R is $3,899.95!!! But…you are going to have to wait until June 2015 – that is when Canon will first start shipping the cameras. However, I am sure we will have a rollout event or two showing the camera at the store.We typically send an e-mail blast inviting people to join us for those types of events. If you have not already, please sign up to receive information about the rollout event or other offerings that make Keeble and Shuchat Northern California’s Premier camera store.
