You can now preorder the 50MP Canon 5DS and 5DS R for $3699 and $3899
Shipping in June 2015
Early reports – the detail and resolution is quite stunning but this is not the replacement to the 5D Mark IV that many of us were waiting for – the 5DS and 5DS R are targeted at your landscape photographers and studio work – an attempt to steal some market from the medium format users.
Are you interested? If not what would interest you – what do you wish they had included in these two new cameras?
More About the Canon 5DS and 5DS R
One my of my viewers Got his hand on the 5DSR at this weekend’s UK Photo show and had this to share
“As there were a lot of consumers there, the areas surrounding the 750D/760D were busy, but the 5DS and 5DSR were relatively clear. I got my hands on the 5DSR.
The sides were sealed up to ensure nobody snuck a card in.
One Canon rep made of point of telling me it’s a totally new body, since I actually own a 5D Mk3 (and had one in my hand) you’d think he’d know a bit better. It’s IDENTICAL. The menus, the grip, the dials – all the same. Any re-design is internal.
This isn’t a bad thing, but don’t expect this to feel like a new camera. It is a 5D Mark 3 with a higher resolution sensor. In terms of operating speed, it felt about the same, I suppose that means it’s a bit quicker as it’s handling those huge 50mp files.”
I will have a full write from Scott’s visit to the UK Photo show soon.
Further proof that it is identical in all external design – a waterproof housing for the 5D Mark III is listed as also working for the %DS and 5DS R.
