Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R Explained In-Depth (CPN)


Canon Professional Network posted “The EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R explained”, a technical article that goes deep into the features and technology of Canon’s new EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R:

The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R represent a new line of ultra high-resolution EOS DSLR cameras – featuring 50.6 Megapixel sensors – that are ideal for photographers who want to capture an extraordinary amount of detail in their images. The new cameras will be popular with those shooting landscape and architectural photography, as well as those shooting commercial or high-end editorial work in the studio. The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R sit alongside the EOS 5D Mark III in the EOS range, and use new technologies to make the most of both of the cameras’ high-resolution capabilities.

The Science and Technology behind Canon’s “L” Lenses

The Canon Professional Network posted an article about all the technology and science that’s behind a Canon “L” lens.

In several L-series lenses, both UD glass and fluorite lens elements have been combined to produce optimum results. With the continued increase in resolution of digital cameras, demands on lenses are increasing. It is likely, therefore, that UD and fluorite elements will be incorporated into a greater number of lenses, from wide-angle to super-telephoto.

Canon EOS 7D Shutter Mechanism in Extreme Slow Motion (10.000 fps)

This video by Gavin Free of The Slow Mo Guys shows the working of the EOS 7D‘s shutter mechanism, filmed with extreme high frame rates up to 10.000 fps using a Phantom Flex.

It’s also a very good explanation of the rolling shutter technique with examples at different speeds. You can see how the shutter works 400x slower. Pretty impressing.
