The Canon EOS 5DS DSLR Camera is ideal for commercial and fine art photography, or any other application requiring its 50.6 Megapixel high resolution sensor. The EOS 5DS features an advanced, 61-point, High Density, Reticular AF system that includes 41 cross-type AF points and EOS iTR AF for precise auto focus in numerous situations. An anti-flicker function helps provide consistent exposure and color during continuous shooting under certain lighting conditions, while a built-in bulb timer and intervalometer expands creative opportunities without the need for an additional remote control.

A refined mirror control mechanism reduces vibration and a Time Release Lag setting minimizes camera shake for sharp image capture when using mirror lock-up. New features like a crop function of 1.3x and 1.6x and a Custom Quick Control screen are complemented by advanced, multi-featured Full HD Movie capture, with Time Lapse Movie, and much more. 


New 50.6 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS sensor        

The EOS 5DS camera features Canon's newest full-frame CMOS sensor. At 50.6 Megapixels, it captures 8712 x 5813 effective pixels, delivering images with an unprecedented level of realism perfect for large-scale commercial printing, fine art, significant crops and any number of other high-end applications. This sensor is engineered to work in concert with dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors.


New Fine Detail mode in Picture Style        

Taking advantage of its high resolution sensor, the EOS 5DS camera features a new Picture Style called Fine Detail mode. Fine Detail emphasizes fine edges and patterns or textures by setting the camera's Sharpness sub-settings, fineness, and threshold to their minimum, and by lowering contrast settings. Prioritizing minute details in the image allows for better gradations, more detailed textures, and fine edges for smoother, more polished photographs.


EOS Scene Detection System with RGB+IR Metering Sensor         

The EOS 5DS camera has an amazing iSA Intelligent Scene Analysis system that employs an independent RGB+IR light sensor with approximately 150,000-pixel resolution. This sensor enables Canon's Intelligent Tracking and Recognition system (iTR AF) that detects and tracks subjects, automatically switching the AF point to optimize tracking.


61-point High Density Reticular AF  

The EOS 5DS camera has an advanced, 61-point High Density Reticular AF system with up to 41 cross-type AF points. The EOS 5DS's AF system is incredibly sensitive to changes in composition, making adjustments quickly to help ensure consistent, sharp AF. A new RGB+IR AF (with approximately 150,000 pixels) sensor monitors subject motion, and Canon's iTR Intelligent Tracking and Recognition system synchronizes the active AF point with the subject's motion, helping to ensure that AF precision is maintained.


Advanced Mirror Control Mechanism and Shutter Release Time Lag

The camera shake that occurs from the impact of an SLR's mirror can leave blurred details in the recorded image. This effect is magnified when working with a high-resolution sensor like the one found in the EOS 5DS camera. To counter the effects of conventional, spring-driven SLR mirrors, the EOS 5DS features a Mirror Vibration Control system. The camera's mirror replaces springs with a small motor and cams, which suppress the impact typical of the camera's mirror, significantly reducing impact and its effects on the image. A new Time Release Lag setting, accessed via the EOS 5DS's menu system, offers added protection against camera shake by increasing the shutter release time so the camera does not begin the exposure until after the impact of the camera's mirror has subsided.


Anti-Flicker Feature    

With Canon's Anti-flicker function, the EOS 5DS camera is able to deliver accurate results under changing lighting conditions. Under flickering light, such as fluorescent lighting, a fast shutter speed may result in an irregular exposure. The EOS 5DS's Anti-flicker function detects the frequency and phase of the flicker and captures images near the point of peak brightness when the subject is most likely well illuminated.


Built-in Intervalometer and Bulb Timer        

The EOS 5DS camera offers time-lapse fixed-point shooting and long exposures without the need for a remote control. The EOS 5DS's interval timer takes from 1 to 99 shots at preselected intervals (from 1 second to 99 hours 59 minutes 59 seconds, or unlimited), ideal for shooting flowers as they bloom or clouds drifting through the sky. Captured exposures can even be collected and saved as an HD movie. Its built-in bulb timer keeps the shutter open for a designated amount of time, perfect for night photography, to capture the flow of traffic on a street corner, or any other situation where long exposure photography is warranted.


1.3x and 1.6x crop shooting  

For still photography, the EOS 5DS camera features the flexibility of a cropping feature that extends the shooting effect 1.3x and 1.6x. With 50.6 Megapixel capture, cropped shots are possible with plenty of resolution to spare. Images recorded at 1.3x (APS-H) are approximately 30.5 Megapixels (6768 x 4512) Large/Fine JPEG, while images recorded at 1.6x (APS-C) are approximately 19.6 Megapixels (5424 x 3616) Large/Fine JPEG. Particularly useful in extending the range of telephoto lenses, the crop function also improves the EOS 5DS's subject tracking capability with almost the entire frame covered with AF points. Image cropping can be displayed in the viewfinder either masked or overlaid with an outline showing the cropped area, and in Live View shooting the image is cropped by the effect chosen. Aspect ratios can also be defined, with the EOS 5DS shooting in 1:1, 4:3, and 16:9 ratios, in addition to the default 3:2.


Intelligent Viewfinder II        

The EOS 5DS camera's Intelligent Viewfinder II makes it easy to both shoot, change and confirm camera settings and shooting modes all without looking away from the viewfinder. Displaying approximately 100% of the composition, the viewfinder can show settings like shooting mode, exposure level, white balance, drive mode, AF operation, metering mode, recording format, an electronic level and more. All of this information can be displayed by or superimposed easily over the image for review while shooting, and multiple views are customizable through the EOS 5DS's simple user interface.


Full HD 30p movie capability  

The EOS 5DS camera is a sophisticated movie-making machine, capturing Full HD movies with numerous manual controls at multiple frame rates and compressions. Featuring movie capture and manual controls, the EOS 5DS's shutter button can be programmed to capture still images when pressed during movie shooting.

  • ALL-I: Compresses each frame. Although the file size is larger than IPB, each frame is not affected by the previous and next frames, making it suitable for editing and extracting frames.
  • IPB: Compresses the movie frame by referencing the previous and next frames. High compression is used, making it suitable for recording long movies.


Time Lapse Movie Function

The EOS 5DS camera has a time-lapse movie feature that takes still photos at set intervals and compiles them to create a silent movie. Perfect for shooting clouds moving across the sky, plant growth, the movement of people and vehicles, and many other applications. With the compiling and processing accomplished entirely in-camera rather than on an external computer system, a great deal of time is saved when in the field.


High-speed Continuous Shooting

The EOS 5DS camera can continuously shoot up to 5.0 frames per second. Thanks to its dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors, enhanced shutter mechanism and mirror drive, the EOS 5DS is capable of capturing full 50.6 Megapixel images at high speed with superb quality.


3.2" ClearView II LCD Monitor

The 3.2" ClearView II LCD monitor has 1,040,000 dots, anti-reflective construction and features Canon's ClearView technology for a bright, sharp display in any number of shooting situations. It's ideal for reviewing settings and images, as well as for shooting in Live View mode. In Live View, grid lines can be displayed in 9 sections, 24 sections, or 9 sections with diagonals, as can the electronic level, which helps ensure accurate level by displaying roll. For image review, the EOS 5DS camera has a dedicated Magnify/Reduce button for zooming in or out (up to 16x) simply by pressing the button and turning the Main Dial. Images can be protected or erased quickly, individually or in batches, and slideshows can be created with some or all images and can be sequenced by date, folders, movies, stills or rating. A clear and simple feature guide found in the camera's menu provides detailed reference information whenever needed.


Quick Control Screen

In addition to a conventional Quick Control screen, the EOS 5DS camera features a Quick Control button that enables the photographer to quickly and easily access the settings critical for the task at hand. The user can specify features to display, as well as their location and size on the screen.


USB 3.0

The EOS 5DS R camera features a USB 3.0 digital terminal for fast transfer to PCs and printers, plus offers connectivity to Canon's WFT-E7 (Version 2) for wireless transfer and Wi-Fi® compatibility.

NOTE: For connecting an interface cable to the USB 3.0 terminal, a cable protector is included with the EOS 5DS R, and must be used at all times to protect the camera's circuit board.
