Chuck Westfall About the Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R (no DR improvement over 5D3, sensor is made by Canon)

The video above is an interview DPReview conducted with Canon’s Chuck Westfall, the talk is about the new Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R. In the interview Mr. Westfall says the 5DS and 5DS R have no improvement in dynamic range over the EOS 5D Mark III.

There is more. Chuck Westfall was also interviewed by the folks at Shutterbug. With the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R…

[Canon is] actually competing against the medium format camera backs but in the 35mm format this is much smaller, more compact and with a greater access to lenses

Asked who made the sensor in Canon’s high resolution DSLRs:

Westfall said the 50.6MP CMOS sensors in the 5DS and 5DS R are developed and produced by Canon. When asked whether they were created in collaboration with Sony as some rumors indicated, Westfall responded by saying: “Absolutely not. The sensors were developed completely in-house, by Canon

This should put an end to the rumor suggesting Canon may use sensors manufactured by Sony on their future DSLR.
