UPDATE

I got some more tidbits about the specs (thanks). Here is the new specification list (lines in bold are the new specs):

  • 50.6MP full-size CMOS sensor (53MP total count)
  • 5DS R is without low-pass filter
  • Magnesium alloy body
  • Dust and water sealed
  • Dual processor DIGIC6
  • Regular sensitivity ISO 100-6400, expand to 12800
  • Continuous shooting 5 frames / sec.
  • High precision 61-point AF, 41 cross type
  • EOS iTR AF
  • 150,000 pixel RGB + IR photometry sensor
  • Added “fine detail” to the Picture Style
  • 1.3x and 1.6x crop shooting mode
  • Customizable “Quick Control Screen”
  • Time-lapse movie
  • Anti-flicker
  • Interval Timer
  • Bulb timer
  • No headphone terminal
  • No DAF
  • No HDMI output for video (clean out). Not to compete with 5D III other video features are same.

The source also stated that the sensor is made by Canon using a new CMOS manufacturing process. I rate the added specs as CW3. The new specs (if real) confirm that these are DSLRs not oriented to the videographers.

ORIGINAL POST

Image and specs of the upcoming Canon 5Ds and EOS 5Ds R leaked at digicame-info. Two models will be announced next week, the EOS 5Ds and the EOS 5Ds R. Yesss, it’s a full-frame, high resolution Canon DSLR! :-)

The specs look impressing:

  • 50.6MP full-size CMOS sensor
  • 5DS R is without low-pass filter
  • Magnesium alloy body
  • Dust and water sealed
  • Dual processor DIGIC6
  • Regular sensitivity ISO 100-6400
  • Continuous shooting 5 frames / sec.
  • High precision 61-point AF
  • EOS iTR AF
  • 150,000 pixel RGB + IR photometry sensor
  • Added “fine detail” to the Picture Style
  • 1.3x and 1.6x crop shooting mode
  • Customizable “Quick Control Screen”
  • Time-lapse movie
  • Anti-flicker
  • Interval Timer
  • Bulb timer

There is no mention of Dual Pixel AF. Hence I think these cameras are not oriented to the videographers crowd. Moreover, looking at the so far leaked specs these appear to be DSLRs heavily oriented to stills photography. Another surprise is the relatively small ISO range, topping at ISO 6400, which makes me think that Canon wanted to keep sensor noise low. The pixel density of a full-frame 50MP sensor is more or less the same as on a 20MP APS-C sensor. The EOS 5Ds and EOS 5Ds R are not for the sport and wildlife photogs out there. Both cameras are for studio and landscape photography.

The two crop modes are an interesting feature, for sure it was on the wish list of many pros, and it is a primer for Canon. All in all, and judging according to the specs, these are two cameras that professional photographers will love. Looks like Canon is well listening to the needs of their customers.

The big question is: is this a Sony sensor?!? What do you think?

Do you think the EOS 5Ds and EOS 5Ds R have a sensor made by Sony?
