How to get the most out of Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R files (Canon DLC)

eos 5ds

The Canon Digital Learning Center posted an article about how to work and get the most out of the files produced by the 50MP EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras.

The 50.3 million actual pixels in an EOS 5DS/5DS R high-resolution file make it easy to spot the tiniest of errors. This may not matter much to the sports photographer using an EOS 5DS for a great magazine cover shot or a wedding shooter shooting group photos at a wedding. But to the super critical landscape photographer, who is expecting every blade of grass to be visible in that scenic shot if it’s printed with a 44-inch wide-format printer, or the studio shooter who wants every last bit of detail in that product shot, there are ways to get those results.

From the Canon EOS 5D Mark III to Canon EOS 5DS/5DS R, all the differences


Canon DLC article about the differences between the EOS 5D Mark III and Canon’s new, 50MP EOS 5Ds and EOS 5Ds R. This is for all those that are thinking about switching from the EOS 5D Mark III to the EOS 5DS/5DS R.

Current EOS 5D Mark III shooters, who may be considering moving to the new high-resolution EOS 5DS (or the EOS 5DS R, which removes the effect of low-pass filtration), may wonder if anything changed on these new cameras because the new models look practically identical to the proven Mark III camera. Rest assured, there are some new rewards waiting to greet 5D Mark III owners who step up to the new cameras.

The article covers what changes most for EOS 5D Mark III users who are switching to the EOS 5DS/5DS R. Read the article at CDLC –>

How to remotely upload video files (EOS C100 Mark II to Google Drive)

Canon DLC posted an in-depth article about how to upload video files to cloud storage. In this case, the EOS C100 Mark II and Google Drive are taken in account.

Imagine this: a world where, by the time you have packed up your camera, your editor across the country has already built a general assembly with the footage you just shot. No, this world does not involve some new super-fast service from FedEx or even a laptop. Instead, it relies solely on the technology inside of the EOS C100 Mark II.

The EOS C100 Mark II is the first camera in the Cinema EOS product line to integrate advanced network functionality. These network functionalities allow us to do a few unique things while shooting. The first is giving us the ability to control primary camera functions from any device, such as a laptop or a cellphone. This is critical when the camera is mounted on an inaccessible place like a crane or car. But the network function that has won both my heart as well as its very own post is the ability to upload video files to an FTP (file transfer protocol) server or Google Drive (Google’s simple and user-friendly cloud storage service), directly from the camera.
