Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R news round-up

 EOS 5DS

Canon’s new megapixel champions, the world’s highest resolution full-frame cameras started shipping, and reviews and first impression are showing up everywhere.


Some early thoughts about the EOS 5DS R by Ming Thein.

I expect in real terms the difference in pixel size is going to mean a tradeoff between resolution and dynamic range – though it’s too early to conclude for sure. I do believe that the gain in printability – assuming lenses that are of sufficient quality – will be noticeable. I’m also curious about some of the other lenses for the Canon system that have no Nikon equivalents – the 17 TSE, for instance, and the MPE-65.


Megapixel magic in the frozen north – Canon Professional Network

Travel photographer and Canon Explorer Lucie Debelkova was one of the first to shoot with the high-resolution EOS 5DS R and, as she explains to CPN, she found 50.6 Megapixels brought her much closer to the magic of the north.

[…] if you want the highest possible resolution while staying with the EF system, the 5DS is the camera for you. It captures images with 8688×5792 pixels, compared to 7360×4912 on the D810, allowing you to output four inches wider at 300dpi. If we’re staying within Canon’s World, it’s a huge jump from the 5760×3840 pixels of the EOS 5D Mark III: you can output at 29x19in with the 5DS versus 19x13in for the EOS 5D Mark III at 300dpi.

Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R resolution tests published

5ds

LensRentals posted the results of their initial testing of the Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R. They used the following lenses to test the sensor: Canon EF 50mm f/1.4, Zeiss 21mm f/2.8, , Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 Otus, and Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II.

In the conclusion they write:

Just as it was the Nikon high resolution cameras were released, it will take months of testing and photographer experience to determine which lenses do exactly what with the new cameras. But it’s not a critical thing to know at first. Every lens will provide better on the new cameras, at least in the center of the image. How much of a difference will range from noticeably better, to “wow” depending upon the lens, type of photography, and subject matter.
