Best DSLR on the Market Today Canon EOS 5DS / 5DS R

Why is it the Best DSLR Camera on the Market today! Because it’s a Canon! It’s a Canon! Did I mention it’s a Canon! You would have to buy a Hasselblad Medium Format Camera to achieve this resolution in a camera which is very expensive! Great Job Canon! I have owed Canon equipment for over 20 years and they just keep getting better and better.

Canon has just added to its Pro EOS 5D range with the launch of two 50MP cameras, the 5DS and the 5DS R. Both cameras are high-resolution full frame models, primarily aimed at stills and Portrait photographers. The only difference between the models is that the ‘S’ has an optical low-pass filter, while the ‘S R’ has a self-cancelling filter.

The two cameras will exist in addition to the EOS 5D Mark III, acting as dedicated high-resolution cameras primarily intended for studio, landscape and beach portrait shoots, rather than the all-round capability offered by the existing model. The Mark III still trumps the S and S R in terms of maximum ISO and continuous shooting speed.

Both Canon models have been announced a long way ahead of their June 2015 availability date, so we wouldn’t be surprised if some of these details changed between now and then.

Canon EOS 5DS / SR key features

  • 50MP CMOS sensor
  • 5fps continuous shooting
  • ISO 100-6400 (Extends to 12,800)
  • 61-point AF module with input from 150k pixel metering sensor
  • Dual Digic 6 processors
  • 3.0″ 1.04m dot LCD
  • CF & SD slots (UHS-I compatible)
  • 1080/30p video
  • M-Raw and S-Raw down-sampled formats
  • 30MP APS-H crop and 19.6MP APS-C crop modes
  • USB 3.0 interface

Most of the big new features on the high-res 5Ds are about ensuring you’re able to get the best of the cameras’ extra resolution. To this end, Canon has reinforced the tripod socket and surrounding area to allow stable engagement with a tripod. It has also used a more controllable, motorized mirror mechanism, like the one in the EOS 7D II, that allows a deceleration step before the mirror hits its upper position – reducing mirror slap.

The third change a revised mirror lock-up mode that allows you to specify an automatic delay between the mirror being raised and the shutter opening to start the exposure. It allows the user to choose the shortest possible delay that has allowed mirror vibration to subside: maximizing sharpness while minimizing the loss of responsiveness.

Although the S and the SR can both shoot movies with the same choice of frame rates and compression as the 5D III, they don’t offer clean HDMI output or headphone sockets.

What are Megapixels?

So what are megapixels, and how do they relate to image quality? Color equals Data! The more data you can store per image the more color you can actually take home with you to see on your computer. To put it simply, a single megapixel amounts to exactly one million pixels in an image. If you know the width and height in pixels of an image created by your camera, it’s easy to calculate how many megapixels your camera gets. So to take the nerd speak out of the verbiage its the amount of color the camera can recognize and process per image and the maximum size you have the ability to enlarge an image up to before you start to get distortion. So if you want to capture all the available color from a sunset photo and enlarge it to a large size you will want a High megapixal camera with a Pro Grade Lense. The camera can only process what its given. So Pro Grade Glass is just as important as a high megapixal camera. That’s why the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L lens is on my camera for beach portrait and wedding photography.
