Canon EOS 5DS review: Resolution revelation

No reviews
Verdict: Canon had dilly-dallied around the resolution conundrum for what seemed like an eternity. "Push beyond 22-megapixels? Golly, no way" was pretty much the message for years. And then it goes and releases a 50.6-megapixel full-frame DSLR, the EOS 5DS. And, frankly, it's bloomin' brilliant.
Pros: Hugely impressive image quality (when matched with best lenses and suitable shutter speeds
Cons: No tilt/vari-angle screen, not the best for fast-moving subjects (high shutter speeds essential

Canon EOS 5DS review

5.0
Verdict: If you're already a 5D Mark III owner and are thinking of making the leap to the 5DS, it should be an extremely easy transition. You'll need to give a bit of thought as to how those extra pixels affect the way you capture images, but otherwise this is easy stuff.
Pros: Top notch image quality, Improved build to reduce vibrations, Swift and accurate focusing
Cons: Maximum 12,800 ISO, The 5D Mark III is better for video

Canon EOS 5DS

4.2
Verdict: There was a time when Canon led the high resolution large-format sensor race by a pretty comfortable margin (those were the days…), but since the last iteration of its flagship ‘Ds' series way back in 2008, the company's DSLRs have been stuck hovering around 20MP.
Pros: Class-leading 50.6MP image resolution, Pleasing out-of-camera colors, particularly skintones, 61-point AF system with 41 cross-type points, 5 dual cross-type, high precision points offer uncanny precision with newer lenses, 150,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor enables iTR, and also rudimentary face...
Cons: Raw dynamic range limited compared to peers, Base ISO images can be noisier than the best of the competition, Low light performance limited compared to peers, ISO cap of 12,800 (6400 for Auto ISO) feels arbitrary and limiting, JPEGs not as sharp or detailed as some competitors, AF subject tracking...

Review: Canon EOS 5DS

4.2
Verdict: ‘That's more megapixels than most photographers will ever need,' we thought when those cameras first launched. ‘Surely this longstanding war of technological willy waving is over?'

Canon EOS 5DS Review

4.5
Verdict: The new Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R both feature the same body as the EOS 5D Mark III, but with a drastically higher resolution 50-megapixel full-frame sensor. The cameras are both capable of shooting at 5fps.
Pros: 50.6 megapixel full-frame sensor, 5fps continuous shooting, Rapid focus and shutter response, High quality 3.2inch screen, AWB with white priority gives good results, Mirror Vibration Control System, USB3 - useful for transferring large files, Customisable picture style options for better results,...
Cons: Soft JPEG images on default settings, Wi-Fi not built in

Canon EOS 5DS review

No reviews
Verdict: The Canon EOS 5Ds is essentially an EOS 5D Mark III with twice as many pixels. Sure there's a number of other small but useful upgrades, many focused on ensuring the resolution isn't squandered by vibration, but there's no denying the 5Ds is all about the sensor.
Pros: Industry-leading 50 Megapixel resolution, Powerful 61-point AF system with custom presets, Bulb timer, intervalometer, varied mirror-lockup options, Enhanced viewfinder with lots of shooting information
Cons: Needs the best lenses and precision technique, Noise creeps into files from 400 ISO, No Wifi, no 1080 video above 30p, no 4k, no hybrid AF, Non-articulated screen, focus peaking or zebra patterns

Canon EOS 5DS Review

No reviews
Verdict: The Canon EOS 5DS is a natural follow-up to the three-year-old 5D MKIII , a legendary model beloved of many photographers. However, this isn't a wholesale replacement, and isn't even the better performer in every single respect.

Canon EOS 5DS

No reviews
Verdict: It's not long since conventional photographer wisdom stated that no-one needed more than 12 megapixels. However, after Nikon reignited the megapixel race with the D800 , and with 250-megapixel cameras on the horizon, pixels (along with sensor size) are once again where it's at.

Canon EOS 5DS

No reviews
Verdict: Canon's Megapixel leader with a huge 50.6-Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS imaging sensor, the EOS 5Ds leads the way in the high-resolution battle of DSLR cameras. Complimenting this sensor is a slew of leading-edge features that will have everyone, pros and amateurs alike, drooling over this camera.
Pros: AF and Metering are both incredibly fast and accurate, Live view allows you to shoot with the LCD, Full 1080p HD video capture produces beautiful videos, Outstanding overall image quality, Amazing detail from loads of resolution, 3.2-inch, 1.04 million dot LCD is great in all lighting conditions to...
Cons: Very large, heavy camera, Camera must be in video capture mode to capture video, No GPS or WiFi built-in, Battery seemed to go quickly during our tests, No 4K video capture, Dual card slots are SD and CF, not the same media (some may see this as positive, No built-in flash unit

Canon EOS 5DS/5DS R review - hands on

No reviews
Verdict: Canon has mostly avoided getting into a battle for higher pixel counts with rival Nikon, hovering around the 21-megapixel mark for its full-frame 5D Mk II and 5D Mk III . That all changed earlier this month when the company revealed not one, but two new flagship models; the 5DS and 5DS R.

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

Canon EOS 5DS

No reviews
Verdict: The 5DS and 5DS R are not replacement models, but two parts of a new high-resolution line. Based on the design of the highly successful 5D MkIII and incorporating a few of the 7D MkII's advancements, the 5DS is a more specialist camera than both, aimed specifically at studio and landscape...

Canon EOS 5Ds

No reviews
Verdict: For a long time in photography circles, there were two rival camps – those who swore by the versatility of the DSLR and image purists who lay their allegiance to the superior quality delivered by medium format cameras. The Canon EOS 5Ds could well be considered the bridge between the two.
Pros: Superb image quality, Excellent build, Familiar controls and layout
Cons: Produces large files, Only 5 frames per second, Limited ISO range

Canon EOS 5DS

4.0
Verdict: The Canon EOS 5DS ($3,699, body only) is one of a pair of cameras that utilize the EF lens system, each with 50-megapixel image sensors. Unlike the EOS 5DS R , the 5DS utilizes an optical low-pass filter (OLPF) to combat color moiré artifacts, but it does so at the cost of detail.
Pros: Highest resolution in class. 5fps burst shooting. Full-frame image sensor. Dual memory card slots. 61-point autofocus system. Intervalometer and time lapse support. Sharp rear display. Solid control layout. Medium and Small Raw capture modes. 1080p video
Cons: Limited to ISO 12800. Optical low-pass filter detracts from detail. Omits in-camera Wi-Fi and GPS. Lacks built-in flash

4.0
Verdict: I ended up keeping very little of this bundle. I thought the I would be dollars ahead to buy the bundle but after researching, very little of it was more than dime store. I kept the body, cards, batteries, and one lens. Other than that, if you want quality, do not buy this bundle.

A beast of a camera

4.5
Verdict: With a whopping 50.6 megapixels, Canon new full frame DSLR is one to be reckoned with. Aimed at the working professional, this camera looks to be quite a handful. With an identical external layout to the 5D Mk iii, the 5DS and the 5DSR are fully compatible with all the accessories designed for the...

Canon EOS 5DS review by chweyd

No reviews
Verdict: The image quality of the 5Ds is amazing but it did not came as a surprise. With 50.6 MP on a full frame the pixel density is very similar (actually a little lower) compared to APS-C cameras like the 70D.
Pros: High pixel count, weather sealed
Cons: The image quality of the 5Ds is amazing but it did not came as a surprise. With 50.6 MP on a full frame the pixel density is very similar (actually a little lower) compared to APS-C cameras like the 70D.

Fabulous camera, I love it!

5.0
Verdict: I am a landscape photographer and I love to take pano shots. My best one so far was from a pylon on the Sydney Harbour Bridge where using my 5Ds I took a 7 pic pano and blended it in Photoshop, and the perfect result now hangs on the wall, 2.8m long and 60cm high, and not a single glitch of any...

A great camera.

5.0
Verdict: I've been using a 5DSR for a few months now and I honestly love it. There are downsides. It's insanely expensive. The closeness of the pixels in the sensor mean that it sometimes can't capture movement, such as hair on a portrait subject in a breeze, whereas a 5D mark iii wouldn't struggle at all to...

It could be a perfect DSLR, but it's disappointing

5.0
Verdict: I've been a Canon user for the past decade, I've switched a lot of bodies and finally I've sold my back-up 6D (because of its rubbish AF system) which I bought almost 5 years ago and only kept the 5Ds which I bought 3 years ago.

Who said low light is not possible with 5DS

5.0

Canon EOS 5DS

5.0
Verdict: Although I only need about 24-28 megapixels for most of my work, I succumbed to temptation after seeing the 5DS for sale at GBP1880 as a grey import. I've only had it a few days but I've taken a lot of test shots to establish the usable ISO range, and to calibrate the AF micro-adjust, picture style...

Canon 5DS R

5.0
Verdict: Nice solid built camera. The 50MP sensor lets you do a lot of cropping and still have great results. Battery doesn't last as long as it did in my 6D and the ISO range is not as good as my 6D either. However the big file size is what I really wanted - the other issues I can deal with.

ISO not great, but resolution is incredible

4.0
Verdict: Resolution is incredible, but I wish it had the ISO capability of the 5d mkiii. Still I knew about it going in, so I can't complain too much. Delivery was fast. Camera was in excellent shape when it arrived.
