With all the features and capabilities of the EOS 5DS, the EOS 5DS R camera offers the potential for even greater sharpness and fine detail for specialized situations. It features the same Canon designed and manufactured 50.6 Megapixel sensor, with the Low Pass Filter (LPF) effect cancelled to provide even more fine edge sharpness and detail for critical subjects such as detailed landscapes, and other situations where getting the sharpest subject detail is a priority.
Low-pass filter effect cancellation
For photographers wanting the ultimate in high resolution capture, the EOS 5DS R camera has a Low-pass filter (LPF) effect cancellation. While a Low-pass filter is useful to reduce color artifacts and moiré typical with digital capture, it also reduces detail at the pixel level. With the LPF disabled, the EOS 5DS R takes full advantage of the original resolving power of the camera’s 50.6 Megapixel sensor. More detail is captured and retained in the original image, perfect for landscape and commercial applications where pixel-level detail is scrutinized and in situations when the sharpest possible image is needed.
New 50.6 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS sensor
The EOS 5DS R camera features Canon’s newest full-frame CMOS sensor: At 50.6 Megapixels, it’s the highest resolution sensor in the history of EOS. 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. Thanks to this amazing sensor, engineered to work in concert with dual DIGIC 6 Image processors, the EOS 5DS R is a remarkable, high-resolution camera with impressive performance.
EOS Scene Detection System with RGB+IR Metering Sensor
The EOS 5DS R camera has an amazing iSA Intelligent Subject Analysis system that employs an independent RGB 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. With new tracking algorithms tailored to recognize faces and colors, this system serves as a brilliant foundation to the EOS 5DS R’s AF system.
61-point High Density Reticular AF
For fast, precise AF with sophisticated tracking performance, the EOS 5DS R camera has an advanced, 61-point High Density Reticular AF system with 41 cross-type AF points. The EOS 5DS R’s AF system is incredibly sensitive to changes in composition, making adjustments quickly to help ensure consistent, sharp AF. A new RGB+IR AE (with approximately 150,000 dots) sensor monitors subject motion, and Canon’s iTR Intelligent Tracking and Recognition system synchronizes the active AE point with the subject’s motion, helping to ensure that AF precision is maintained. With focus modes dedicated to the particulars of the shooting environment, the EOS 5DS R realizes a level of focus accuracy befitting its 50.6 Megapixel sensor.
Compatible with the new optional Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1 accessory, which enables Wi-Fi® capabilities including easy transfer of images to a compatible smartphone or tablet, and remote still shooting
The EOS 5DS R camera is compatible with the new optional Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1 accessory for convenient Wi-Fi® capabilities. When inserted into the camera’s SD card slot, the W-E1 enables you to wirelessly view and transfer images when connected to a compatible smart device with the Camera Connect mobile app installed, along with remote shooting for stills and the ability to remotely change camera settings. These Wi-Fi® functions can also be utilized when wirelessly connected to a computer equipped with the EOS Utility software.
