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.

 The Stars above Vis Harbor. I loved the town of Vis and the island of Vis - lovely quiet little place off the coast of Croatia. See more of it including an animation of this star stacking AND one angry hooded crow that really wanted to take out my drone! http://photorec.tv/croatia Captured with the #GH5 and 12-60 f/2.8-4 Lens | 41 exposures of 60 seconds in length - done in camera - the GH5 allows up to 60 second shutter speeds. Nifty!
 Trailer park girls be like… Part of the Sony set for shooting last week at #SonyKandotrip Thanks to @artbyadelaide for being awesome. Captured with the #Sony #a9 and #2470Gmaster
 Sony has announced two new lenses and I have had early access to both, shooting on an a7RII and a9 and have sample photos and thoughts on the Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM and Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G Ultra Wide-angle. Watch by clicking on through my profile link or visiting http://photorec.tv/sonywide
