Combine fast, instinctive DSLR handling with 50.6-megapixel resolution, and capture exquisite detail in every moment. The EOS 5DS will transform the way you look at the world.
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.
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
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.
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.
Reduced mirror vibration for maximum sharpness
The EOS 5DS 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.
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.
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.
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-type, provide extra accuracy.
Flexibly change the type, size and position of icons on the camera’s Custom Quick Control screen, so you can easily find your favourite settings.
Intelligent Viewfinder II
Enjoy a bright (approximately) 100 per cent image with a customisable information overlay. 1.6x and 1.3x crops can be masked in the viewfinder and captured as JPEG files.
Customise camera settings for the task in hand and save your favourite functions for the future.
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
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.
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.
Fine Detail Picture Style
Prioritise gradations and detail captured by the highresolution 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.
Full HD EOS movies
Capture Full HD EOS Movies, with creative manual control over picture and sound.

Fantastic resolution - the detail it can reproduce is incredible, especially for Landscapes which is my primary use. Equally its not as hard to get sharp images as some make out with the 50mp sensor. A sturdy tripod and good technique is all thats needed.
Higher ISO noise is good considering sensor size but certainly not up there with the best.

Coming from a 5D Mark 3 I have found this camera very easy to use as the button layout is identical. Image quality is fantastic under the correct conditions. A tripod is almost a must as with this many megapixels any movement or vibration will result in blurry shots.
Low light performance is less than what I would expect. I stick with my 5D Mark 3 for indoor work.
