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'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 is a remarkable, high-resolution camera with impressive performance. 

New Fine Detail mode in Picture Style 
Taking advantage of its sensor's high-resolution capturing power, the EOS 5DScamera has 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 as well. 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 5DScamera 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. With new tracking algorithms tailored to recognize faces and colors, this system serves as a brilliant foundation to the EOS 5DS's AF system. 

61-point High Density Reticular AF 
For fast, precise AF with sophisticated tracking performance, 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. With focus modes dedicated to the particulars of the shooting environment, the EOS 5DS realizes a level of focus accuracy befitting its 50.6 Megapixel sensor. 

AdvancedMirror 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 super high-resolution sensor like the one found in the EOS 5DS camera. To counter the effects of conventional, spring-driven SLR mirrors, the EOS 5DSfeatures a newly developed Mirror Vibration Control system. The camera's mirror is not controlled by springs but instead is driven by a small motor and cams. This system suppresses the impact typical of the camera's mirror, significantly reducing impact and its effects on the image. A new Time Release Lag setting, easily accessed on the EOS 5DS's menu system, offers added protection against camerashake by setting the shutter release time intentionally longer so the camera does not begin the exposure until after the impact of the camera's mirror has diffused.

Anti-flicker feature 
With Canon's Anti-flicker function, the EOS5DScamera is able to deliver accurate results under cycling lighting situations. Under flickering light, such as fluorescent lighting, a fast shutter speed may result in an irregular exposure. The EOS5DS's Anti-flickerfunction 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 5DScamera 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 19.6Megapixels (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.

About the Canon EOS-5DS R

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. 

The possibility of moiré and color artifacts is greater due to the LPF cancellation function. 

• LPF (Low-pass filter) effect cancellation takes full advantage of the original resolving power of the 50.6 effective megapixels CMOS sens or, delivering even higher resolution images. 

• Newly designed 50.6 Megapixel full-frame CMOS helps deliver ultra-high resolution images for large-scale printing and extensive, creative cropping, while Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors enable spectacular image quality and processing speed.

    Good in depth spec's of the New Canon 5Ds and 5DR DSLR camera. But some confirmation needed like, does these camera have Articulating LCD, in the spec's you have mentioned 170degree viewing angle.
    Excellent in depth specification, just looking forward for a review from you Matt, once the product is in market.
    Are there any sign's that, these camera coming with a Kit of 24-135 f/4 lens?.

    For me these cameras, whilst impressive in their own right, represent a nothing step for Canon.

    Compared to the D810 or Sony equivalents: worse video, worse DR, worse colour depth (?), worse ISO performance, worse optimal IQ (per pixel). More expensive. And unless you're going to spend £1,000s on Zeiss glass, you're at best going to see a modest percentage increase in resolution in the real world over a D810, using the same lens.

    Matt if you do review this, it would be good to show people the real world limitations of glass at these modern resolutions, the impact of diffraction, and to give a practical view on the investment in gear and technique truly required to get the most out of a 50mp sensor.

    D810 v 5Dr with zeiss Otus 85mm & Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 would be interesting if you could get them in different mounts : ) Both bodies are billed as studio and landscape specialists.

    It is an indicator of where the market's going though - looking at DXOMark I just think the sensors are out-resolving all but the very best glass now, and there's some huge catching up to do in lens technology. There isn't an AF lens available I don't think that can fully resolve the D810 sensor, for example; closest I think being the £4k 200mm f/2.

    After such a long time since the release of the 5Dmk111 I was expecting something spectacular from Canon. This won't interest me at all however. I am about to 'downgrade' from the Nikon D800e to the 750 as the 36 mpx just cant be utilized most of the time. Having an Olympus omd-em1 as well the articulating screen and the group area focus of the 750 is more useful for me than more mpx.

    Yo Canon, you're to late to the party and if you were not you would still come up short. Like your big half thought-out mirrorless... no EFV? huh? Sony has had this for sometime now and preparing to release better. Maybe someday you will release a camera that's not a P&S that's still relevant. I do give you kudos on the 340HS so you're doing a tad better than Nikon for whatever that's worth.
