Built around a proven DSLR body design, the EOS 5DS R resolves incredibly fine detail in its files, making it a quite-brilliant choice for anyone who shoots landscapes, portraits, architecture and intricate subjects that deserve to be captured in high resolution. Canon users familiar with the EOS system will be able to pick it up and use it from the get go, plus it’s built to withstand the harshest of conditions in the great outdoors. Its monster files take up a lot of space and its fixed screen isn’t ideal for all applications, but other than these points, it’s a high resolution DSLR that’s hard to knock.

Capture extraordinary detail
The 50.6 megapixel full frame CMOS sensor is capable of recording extraordinary levels of detail. The ultra-high resolution enables extensive cropping and still delivers stunning image quality. Even the built-in 1.3x and 1.6x cropped shooting modes produce 30.5 and 19.6 megapixel files, respectively.
Print fine-art quality images to A0 and beyond
Print ultra-high resolution images in large format – A0 and beyond – with low noise, true skin tones and outstanding, accurate colour reproduction thanks to the high performance Dual DIGIC 6 processors.
A low-pass cancellation filter enhances the clarity and sharpness of the high-resolution images with minimal risk of artifacts, making the EOS 5DS R a good option for shooting outdoors or in controlled studio conditions.
Reduced mirror vibration for maximum sharpness
The EOS 5DS R uses Canon’s Mirror Vibration Control System to reduce vibrations caused by internal movements within the camera, which can spoil image sharpness and reduce resolution. Cams are used to drive the mirror up and down in a more controlled fashion, avoiding any sudden stops and also softening the shutter-release sound.
React and respond, staying ahead of the action
Enjoy fast image processing and camera responsiveness – even with the large amounts of data captured by the 50.6-MP sensor – thanks to the Dual DIGIC 6 processors. You can catch all the action with an unrivalled ability to capture 50.6-MP resolution images at 5fps while USB 3.0 connectivity allows fast tethered shooting and remote camera control.
Advanced subject tracking and recognition
EOS Intelligent Tracking and Recognition (iTR) AF technology uses colour and face information to recognise and track subjects as they move around the frame. AF responsiveness can be customised using a simple tool, which adjusts the focus tracking according to the shooting environment and subject, so that other objects passing momentarily in front of the subject don’t interfere with focusing.
61-point wide-area autofocus
Focus quickly and precisely, even in low-light conditions using a 61-point AF System. 41 cross-type focus points, including five extra-sensitive double cross-types, provide extra accuracy.
AF Point Selection
Use all 61 AF points together, or group them into moveable zones that cover off-centre subjects. Alternatively, select just a single AF point to focus precisely on a specific part of the scene.
Carry on shooting with confidence, whatever the conditions, thanks to weather-sealed controls that protect against water and dust, and a durable magnesium alloy construction.
Dual memory card slots
CompactFlash and SD memory card slots enable automatic back-up of files as you shoot, allowing easy sharing with clients and extending storage capacity.
High dynamic range imaging
Preserve the detail in highlight and shadow areas using HDR imaging. Ideal for shooting landscape and still-life shots, it combines three images of different exposures: standard, underexposure and overexposure to preserve detail in shadows and highlights.
Create stunning composite images in-camera using Multiple Exposure mode, which overlays images on top of each other with a choice of automatic multiple exposure control options.
Full HD EOS movies
Capture Full HD EOS Movies, with creative manual control over picture and sound.
Timer shooting functions
Create great time-lapse movies with a built-in, pre-programmable interval timer. For extreme long-exposure photography, the shutter can be locked up in bulb mode for a specified time.
Fine Detail Picture Style
Prioritise gradations and detail captured by the high resolution sensor using Fine Detail Picture Style, which also provides adjustable in-camera sharpening parameters like threshold and fineness for JPEG files – so you can deliver high impact images directly from the camera.
Low-pass cancelation filter
Conventional DSLR designs use a low-pass filter in front of the camera’s sensor to prevent digital artefacts, like moiré and false colour. Such filters soften the image slightly, so the low-pass effect is cancelled in the EOS 5DS R for the sharpest possible performance. The small risk of artefacts as a consequence of this makes EOS 5DS R a good option when shooting outdoors or in controlled studio conditions, but for other applications the EOS 5DS may be a better choice.

One of Giulio Di Sturco’s photographic dilemmas was, should he treat Sophia like a person or an object? Was this portraiture or still-life? “It was on the last day that I took the picture that made the magazine cover – it shows the moment when she realised she had to pose for a camera.”Read full article
