WPPI 2015: Canon EOS 5DS DSLR Camera

Introducing the Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R

Key Features

The two cameras differ only in the construction of their sensors. The EOS 5DS features a low-pass filter in front of its main sensor, which protects against digital artifacts such as moiré and false colour. This makes it a great choice for general-purpose photography, when high-resolution image files are required.

In the EOS 5DS R the effect of this low-pass filter is removed. This has the effect of slightly boosting sharpness and image resolution, though this is at the expense of an increased risk of moiré and false colour appearing in images. For this reason the EOS 5DS R is recommended for photographers who specialise in landscape photography, or for those who prefer to closely control shooting conditions in a studio environment.

In this article CPN takes a look at the capabilities of both of the cameras and the technologies that underpin their performance. Please click on the section headings below to find out more about the high-resolution EOS 5D S and EOS 5DS R cameras.



The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R are impressively specified DSLR cameras that take the heritage of their legendary EOS 5D-series predecessors and add significantly upgraded specifications, most notably their high-resolution 50.6 Megapixel sensors for shooting stills.


At the heart of the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R is a 50.6 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor that delivers new levels of image quality in DSLR photography. Subjects are captured in incredible detail, and file sizes are large enough for printing at huge sizes. Dual DIGIC 6 processing ensures accurate colours and natural variations in tone.


Capturing RAW and JPEG files simultaneously allows users to capture one file for post-production and another that can be used for proof layouts, client editing and concept development. The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R offer new levels of control over in-camera JPEG files, meaning fewer surprises for you and your creative team as your shoot progresses.


The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R take the 61-point AF system from the EOS 5D Mark III and combine it with the advanced exposure metering technology found in the EOS 7D Mark II. The result is astonishing autofocusing performance that is on a par with that of the EOS-1D X.



The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R use an intelligent 252-zone metering system that measures both visible and infrared light for more accurate results. The metering systems of the cameras works hand-in-hand with the autofocus and White Balance systems.


The shutter inside the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R is the same reliable shutter used in the EOS 5D Mark III, which has been used by professional photographers in all environments. A brand new Mirror Vibration Control System reduces camera shake from internal movements, helping to preserve critical sharpness.


The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R feature a host of different shooting modes and technologies that help you create great images – no matter where you are or what you are shooting. Scene Detection aims to recognise the type of subject being photographed, allowing systems like Auto White Balance and Auto Lighting Optimizer to react according.


The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R shoot video in similar way to the EOS 5D Mark III, however the design priority of these cameras was to produce the highest possible stills resolution, therefore some video functions were sacrificed. Both cameras retain some of the video features found first in the 5D Mark III for users who want to shoot video to accompany their still images.


The viewfinder in the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R offers a bright clear view of everything that will appear in the frame, so you can compose each shot with confidence. Information is presented clearly, but without distracting you from the creative process of photography. A 3.2-inch Clear View LCD II screen is great for reviewing and shooting stills and video.


The designs of the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R combine ergonomics, durability and customisability for a shooting experience that encourages creativity. Set up the cameras just as you like, with their customisable controls and Custom Quick Control screen.


The accessories for the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R are the same as those designed for the EOS 5D Mark III, meaning the cameras will fit in easily with your existing equipment. A Wireless File Transmitter enables remote control over WiFi, while a GPS unit geotags images with your current location. A battery grip enhances handling and provides space for an extra battery.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.”
