George Lepp and 3 other Canon Explorers of Light had the opportunity to head into the Nevada landscape and test out the brand new Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R camera bodies while at the WPPI show in Las Vegas. The cameras were also mated with Canon’s latest EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II and EF 11-24mm f/4L lenses.
George’s first take on the camera:
My response to the new camera was that it will be very important to those that can use the technology that is available. If you don’t need a camera with tremendous resolution for large prints or exceptionally high data for cropping, then this will be too much camera for you. It will tax your computer with 300 MB 16bit files. Even the 8bit files are 150 MB when open. The RAW files are approximately 60 MB in size. The dynamic range when working on the files in Canon’s DPP and Photoshop CC 2014 was quite good and pretty much matches my EOS 7D MKII.
The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R are not yet available for preorder and won’t be shipping until June 29, 2015.
