Canon’s new megapixel champions, the world’s highest resolution full-frame cameras started shipping, and reviews and first impression are showing up everywhere.
Some early thoughts about the EOS 5DS R by Ming Thein.
I expect in real terms the difference in pixel size is going to mean a tradeoff between resolution and dynamic range – though it’s too early to conclude for sure.

Review: Canon 5DS and 5DS R — The Nifty Fifties? – PetaPixel
With 50MP of resolution on tap, the sensor delivers details and sharpness in truckloads. My Photoshop became the equivalent of Google Earth — keep zooming into the image and you’d discover details you never imagine existed. You see television detectives screaming “enhance!” to get their lab technicians to reveal the vehicle registration number from surveillance footages? That’s exactly how I felt as I kept zooming in to unravel more details from the 5DS images […]
