What’s missing in this camera?: 4K video and a vari-angle, swing-out (articulated) LCD monitor to give you the feel of a true, 21st century movie-making experience. And, yes, I’d like to see frame rates higher than 5 fps, but remember that we are shooting at the full 50MP resolution. And it would be nice to boost that ISO level another notch—sans interpolation, I might add.
Still, one can’t help but wonder if the 5DS R (along with the 5DS) isn’t an interim camera, as if Canon were saying, if we can put a 50MP sensor inside an existing body, just imagine what we can do if we revamp the chassis and make further tweaks.
