Upcoming High Resolution Canon EOS R Might Have Up to 80MP

Canon Eos R

We have been told (thanks) that the upcoming high resolution Canon EOS R camera might have a resolution of 80MP.

We are not sure what to think about this, for the time being. The last rumor we got about the high res EOS R body, was that it will have resolution that’s higher than the new Sony a7R IV (having 61MP).

The rumored resolution for this EOS R body has always been something around 75MP. A resolution of 80MP is new to us. However, it’s possible. Canon for sure has the know how and the manufacturing facilities to make such a sensor. Moreover, it seems quite clear that Canon wants to regain the crown of full frame sensor resolution.

As you probably know, we think that Canon will not release a new iteration of the EOS 5Ds/EOS 5Ds R. Instead, most likely, Canon will release a mirrorless version to replace these cameras. Given that the EOS 5Ds/EOS 5Ds R have a resolution of 50MP, and given the fact they were released in 2015, a jump to 80MP doesn’t seem that much a stretch. And it’s just 5MP more than the so far rumored resolution. Finally, we have reasons to believe the upcoming high res EOS R has already undergone field testing.

What do you think? Stay tuned…

Canon EOS 5Ds vs Sony a7R III – Which One Is Sharper?

Sony A7R III

Youtube Mads Peter Iversen tested the Canon EOS 5Ds vs the Sony a7R III to test which camera produces sharper results.

He says:

In this video, I compare the sharpness between the 50 megapixels flagship Canon EOS 5Ds and the 42,4 megapixels Sony a7r3 (a7r III). As I own both cameras I was curious to see which came out on top in regard to sharpness. I was actually surprised by the result as there is next to nearly no difference! It is hard to conclude which is the best high megapixel camera. It is important to notice this is the Canon 5Ds, not the Canon 5Dsr (the 5Dsr is supposed to be sharper as it doesn’t have an anti-aliasing filter).
