More About the EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R

The first thing people have noticed is the maximum ISO of 6400 for both the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R.

We’re told this is because of a much stronger CFA which will produce much greater color accuracy than anything currently in the Canon lineup.

The EOS 5D Mark IV will be the camera geared to sensitivity and lowlight performance and we will see one sometime in 2015.

More to come…
