Review: Canon EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R

Review: Canon EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R

By Canon Rumors | July 6, 2015 | Canon Reviews

Bryan at The-Digital-Picture has completed his review of the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R camera bodies. Like us, he loves the additional resolving power for most types of photography. While they’re not the ideal cameras for action photography, they’re not pushovers either.

From Bryan:

CPN (Canon Professional Network) calls it “A Revolution in Resolution”. The Canon EOS 5Ds and 5Ds R show us a level of detail that we’ve never seen before in a DSLR camera. The announcement of the 5Ds and 5Ds R brought high expectations and the arrival of these cameras offered few surprises. The Canon 5Ds promised to perform amazingly and it has delivered on that promise.

Canon Announcements Coming August 14, 2015

Canon Announcements Coming August 14, 2015

By Canon Rumors | July 6, 2015 | Canon DSLR Rumors

It’s rumored that Canon’s next announcement date will be August 14, 2015. Canon will announce a DSLR camera body and two lenses at that time.

Which DSLR and lenses is unknown at the time of writing this.

We don’t expect to see an EOS 5D Mark IV at this time. It could be something like the EOS Rebel SL2, or the EOS-1D X Mark II.

As for the lenses, The EF 35mm f/1.4L II has been heavily rumored as being complete and ready for production. If an L is announced, I’d expect a non L EF/EF-S lens to get announced as well.

More to come…

10 Years of the EOS 5D Line: The Movie

By Canon Rumors | July 3, 2015 | Canon DSLR News

Back in May Canon started celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the EOS 5D line.

Yesterday they released a short movie showing the development of the line from the EOS 5D, to the EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 5D Mark III and most recently the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R.

It has been a revolutionary line of cameras in various ways, and hopefully we get more innovation in the future. I’m talking to you EOS 5D Mark IV!
