More about the Canon 5DS and 5DS R

Are the day of a Canon DSLR that can do a little bit of everything numbered? It’s suggested at Northlight that the “splitting” of camera lines will be the future of Canon’s DSLR strategy. Each camera model will have a specific customer in mind. As we can see, the 5D line is being split 2 ways (3 if you count the “R” model), can we expect the same with 1D line, or a DSLR that is focused on video first?

From Northlight

“The ‘splitting’ of model types in the Canon DSLR range will be interesting to see from a product positioning point of view. I’m told that it’s seen as a major benefit from ‘bringing home’ a lot of Canon’s manufacturing, and will become integral in producing cameras that are marketed more by what you can do with them.”

So I want to make a 24h timelapse video. But I dont knw how to set the exposure. I watched your video, but it didnt really answer my question. I want to keep everything nice exposed during the whole video. How should i do that?


Scott G – would like to hear how heavier lenses such as the Sigma 50mm Art balance on a rebel series body. One of the greatest usability factors I realized after purchasing more glass was the improved ergonomics going from a SL1 to a 6D (same size as a 70D). May be an important factor to consider when deciding between a new T6i/T6s and the 70D if the person purchasing is interested in getting into some serious glass. I noticed a serious improvement in hand fatigue in my own transition, leading to a more enjoyable shooting experience.

 Bald Eagle in Yellowstone - does it get more American than that? The national symbol in the first national park! This was a few days ago - today we saw a golden eagle and my favorite - Pronghorn Antelope - America's fastest land animal! It's been a good week ANDDDDD I get to do it all again with the 2nd tour. Yes I am lucky, yes I am living the dream and YES I worked hard to get here. I am working on a video about hustle, fear and dreams. By working I mean I have thought about it. And yes I like who I am and @nsharpes made me order TWO grande Margaritas - so that might be contributing to this monologue that I just subjected you all too. But honestly - you are cool! ~ Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 70-200 using MC11 adapter
 I said it before, I will say it again - Yellowstone NP in winter is a magical place - for most of the day we were the only ones in sight - in all directions!! It is an amazing experience and I spend most of the day grinning at the beauty, the uniqueness and my luck at being able to experience it all. I remember driving through Hayden Valley on my Summer 1994 road trip- Obviously the place stuck with me and to see it now, all covered in snow... #FNFantastic //And now The Fear by Lily Allen is stuck in my head. ~  Captured with the #Sony #a7rII and Canon 70-200

  1. Hi @camerarectoby and Christina B!

    Love the site. Great idea.

    A question, will you do something where we (the readers/listeners etc) could have the chance to meet you?
    Something like: A meet and greet (dinner?)
    Where the cost could be secondary and divided on all participants (equally).

    Please respond if you guys have a better idea (or anybody else for that matter).

    • We are love this idea and along with the workshops that we plan to offer this year would love to be out and greeting folks. What area are you in?
