Canon Explorer Eberhard Schuy was one of the first to use the recently launched 50.6 Megapixel EOS 5DS. In an interview with Canon Professional Network he highlights what he liked most of the EOS 5DS
On the subject of medium format competition, Eberhard is very frank. “This camera has no disadvantages to medium format cameras,” he states. “The most important thing is what quality the files are. When I need really large files it’s important to have something in reserve. With over 50 Megapixels we have all sorts of possibilities. With this sensor we can produce pictures for every kind of use, including big prints for advertising. So, in the future we will work with just one system in my studio, and that’s the 5D system. Depending on the nature of the job we can chose the EOS 5D Mark III or the EOS 5DS. And because we can use the same lenses, this not only saves time but also a lot of money!”
