Canon EOS 5DS R review (Shutterbug)

Canon EOS 5DS R

Shutterbug review a pre-production Canon EOS 5DS R (with beta firmware). In the conclusion:

What’s missing in this camera?: 4K video and a vari-angle, swing-out (articulated) LCD monitor to give you the feel of a true, 21st century movie-making experience. And, yes, I’d like to see frame rates higher than 5 fps, but remember that we are shooting at the full 50MP resolution. And it would be nice to boost that ISO level another notch—sans interpolation, I might add.

Still, one can’t help but wonder if the 5DS R (along with the 5DS) isn’t an interim camera, as if Canon were saying, if we can put a 50MP sensor inside an existing body, just imagine what we can do if we revamp the chassis and make further tweaks.

Full resolution images available for your pixel-peeping pleasure. Read the review at Shutterbug.

The Canon EOS 5DS R image quality “blows you away”

Fro Knows Photo has a pre-production EOS 5DS R in his hands, and he is more than positively impressed by the image quality of the EOS 5DS R. Coming back from a photo shoot in the Grand Canyon, he says:

I am just back from the Grand Canyon and had to share this photo taken with the Canon 5Dsr at 70mm with the Canon 70-200 2.8 IS II. This photo was taken at 5am as the sun was coming up over the Grand Canyon.

When I zoomed in 1:1 I was blown away at the quality of the image. My D4s doesn’t hold up nearly as well at 1:1 as this 5Dsr but that is to be expected.

When I zoomed in 3:1 I almost fell out of my chair. Just look at me go from full image to 3:1 to get a feel for how far away Todd [the guy in the photo] actually was.

Canon EOS 5D series celebrates 10 year anniversary

Canon press release:

Canon EOS 5D series celebrates 10 year anniversary

TOKYO, May 28, 2015—Canon Inc. announced today the celebration this year of the 10th anniversary of the introduction of the Company’s EOS 5D series of digital single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Launched in September 2005, the EOS 5D enabled advanced-amateur users to take advantage of the impressive high-image-quality performance and photographic expression unique to digital SLR cameras equipped with a 35 mm full-frame sensor, which, at the time, primarily targeted only professional-level users.

At the time of its launch in September 2005, full-frame CMOS sensors were only made available in professional-level models. In addition to being the first advanced-amateur digital SLR camera to incorporate a sensor of this size, the EOS 5D was offered at a competitive price,1 contributing to the popularization of full-frame-sensor cameras.

Furthermore, in November 2008, Canon launched the second-generation model in the series: the EOS 5D Mark II. The camera, which was the first in the EOS series to include a function enabling the capture of Full HD video, facilitated the widespread adoption of digital SLR cameras as a tool for capturing video. The EOS 5D Mark II made big waves in the motion picture and video production industries by delivering the exceptional image quality and impressive subject background blur unique to SLR cameras, while also allowing users to take advantage of Canon’s rich interchangeable EF lens lineup spanning over 64 models,2 enabling a wide spectrum of imaging expression possibilities.

In March 2012, Canon introduced the EOS 5D Mark III, featuring dramatic improvements in still-image and video quality as well as enhanced AF precision and a faster maximum continuous shooting speed. Since its launch, the EOS 5D Mark III has garnered high acclaim in the market and, as the Company’s core advanced-amateur digital SLR camera, has come to serve as a driving force for the EOS series.

Canon, through the in-house production of all key parts for its EOS series digital cameras, has made possible a highly robust lineup, ensuring that each and every model within the series, including EOS 5D-series models, is equipped with the optimal sensor. To support the diverse needs of users, Canon will further strengthen its entire EOS-series interchangeable-lens camera lineup, including the EOS 5D series, which enjoys the widespread support of professional and advanced-amateur users alike, with the aim of contributing to expanding the photographic and video imaging culture.
