The Canon EOS 5DS features an all-new 50.6 megapixel CMOS sensor, along with dual DIGIC 6 processors. The autofocus system has a total of 61 points (in a 'high density reticular array'), 41 of which are cross-type. It uses the same 150,000 pixel RGB+IR metering system as the EOS 7D II with a scene detection system. The metering system also has an anti-flicker function for shooting under sodium vapor lights. The ISO range on the camera is 100-6400, expandable to 12800.

The 5DS has a more rigid chassis than the EOS 5D III in order to minimize camera shake and improve rigidity. The shutter is rated to 150,000 cycles. The 5DS sports an 'Intelligent Viewfinder II' which has an embedded transparent LCD panel that can display cropped shooting frames, composition grids, and an electronic level. It also sports a 3.2" LCD display with 1.04M dots and dual memory card slots (CompactFlash and SD/SDHC/SDXC with UHS-I support).

Photographers have a choice of two crop modes: 1.3x (30.5MP) aqnd 1.6x (19.6MP) as well as medium and small-size Raws. The 5DS can shoot continuously at 5 fps. Video-wise, the 5DS supports 1080/30p recording , though it lacks clean HDMI output and a headphone jack.

The 5DS is joined by the more expensive 5DS R, which cancels the effect of the anti-aliasing filter, which increases resolution at the expense of additional moiré.

 

The EOS Scene Detection System with the 150,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor provides precise exposure and color metering and the 61-point High Density Reticular AF sensor with 41 cross-type points enables accurate AF placement and Canon's EOS iTR (Intelligent Tracking and Resolution) enhances AF performance by using information from the metering sensor.

Crop shooting at 1.3x and 1.6x allows for flexibility in the size of image files created and the selection of lenses. Also, a built-in intervalometer and bulb timer expand your creative options. An advanced mirror control mechanism and new selectable shutter release lag times control camera vibration for reduced blur and quiet operation. Anti-flicker functionality compensates for flickering light sources, providing consistent exposure metering during continuous shooting. Despite its large file sizes, the 5DS can still offer up to a 5 fps continuous shooting rate.

 

 

For stable eye-level composition the 5DS features the Intelligent Viewfinder II with 100% coverage. In addition to its clear view, a superimposed, transparent LCD is incorporated which displays setting information and offers a customizable view of focus points and grid lines.

The 3.2" ClearView II LCD monitor provides playback and live view composition with 1.04m-dot resolution and a 170º viewing angle. High-transparency materials and multi-coating resist reflections for bright viewing, especially important when shooting video.

 

 

The 5DS is a durable and multi-faceted camera for advanced use, yet its dimensions match that of the 5D Mark III. A magnesium-alloy build provides resistance to impact and the elements and inputs include a PC terminal, 3-pin input, an external microphone jack as well as HDMI out and USB 3.0 compatibility.

The base plate and tripod socket have also been reinforced to reduce vibrations and ensure a secure attachment to support systems. Dual media slots for Compact Flash and SD format memory cards are supported. A customizable Quick Control System allows you to easily switch between frequently used settings and functions.
