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.

 #oink Farm life in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania ...That'll do, pig.
 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2
 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND

  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?
