<p><strong>MELVILLE, N.Y., February 5, 2015 –</strong> Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to introduce the Canon EOS 5DSi and Canon EOS 5DS Ri Digital SLR cameras featuring the world’s highest resolution<span class="green">*</span> among 35mm format DSLRs. Providing photographers with uncompromising image quality, these new EOS models incorporate a newly designed Canon 50.6 megapixel full-frame CMOS image sensor and Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors for superb image quality and processing speed. Perfect for commercial, studio, portrait, landscape and architectural photography, or anyone looking for an affordable alternative to medium format, the ultra-high resolution of these new models allow for large-format printing and extensive cropping capability while maintaining fantastic image quality.</p>
<p>Maximizing the potential of the new 50.6 megapixel sensor – for the first time in an EOS camera the low-pass filter effect in the EOS 5DS R model is cancelled. The cancellation of the low-pass filter helps deliver sharp images, squeezing the most out of every pixel. Both models provide attractive options for medium format shooters especially when coupled with a wide array of over 70 creative Canon EF lenses to choose from.</p>
<p>“Canon is always looking to deliver the absolute best in image quality and push our technology to the limits. These cameras deliver on that pledge, providing photographers with two new incredible tools that will enable them to make the most out of every shoot,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “As photography becomes more specialized and more images are captured than ever before, the burden is on the photography equipment to keep up with the demands of today’s artistic talents. These new camera models will provide many photographers with new options to deliver their vision to clients, fans, and the world.”</p>
<p><strong>Built to Maximize Sharpness

</strong>In addition to the 50.6 megapixel full-frame image sensor and Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors, both cameras include a 61-Point High Density Reticular AF array including up to 41 cross-type AF points and EOS iTR AF for high precision autofocus. They also include the EOS Scene Detection system featuring a 150,000-pixel RGB+IR 252-zone metering sensor that provides enhanced precision and performance.</p>
<p>In support of such a high-resolution imaging sensor, the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras were designed to minimize camera shake and significantly improve stability via a reinforced chassis, baseplate and tripod lug to improve rigidity. Canon also re-designed the mirror vibration control system to help reduce mirror bounce and camera shake. To help maximize stability and minimize vibrations, Canon added a new Arbitrary Release Time Lag Setting in Mirror Lock mode in both models. In addition to the standard setting (press the shutter button once to lock the mirror, then again to release the shutter), the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras offer new setting intervals of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, one and two seconds, releasing the shutter after the selected preset delay, allowing potential camera vibration to dissipate before shutter release.</p>
<p>A new Picture Style called “Fine Detail” has been added to enhance the sharpness of JPEGs and EOS Movies with three new settings: Strength, Fineness and Threshold. With such abundant resolution on each sensor, both models also provide two cropped shooting modes, while still delivering high-resolution images 30.5 megapixels for the 1.3x mode and 19.6 megapixels for the 1.6x mode. The available crop options are visible as a mask or an outline in the viewfinder; so shooters can know exactly where to frame their subject.</p>
<p><strong>Capturing the Action

</strong>Like the EOS 7D Mark II, the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras feature an advanced AE system that can detect and compensate for flickering light sources such as sodium vapor lamps that are often used in gymnasiums and natatoriums. When enabled, this anti-flicker system automatically adjusts shutter release timing to help reduce disparities in exposure and color especially during continuous shooting. And new Auto White Balance settings include Ambience Priority and White Priority (for use when shooting under tungsten lighting).</p>
<p>Photographers and cinematographers will appreciate improved custom controls including a built-in intervalometer and bulb timer to enable the capture of time-lapse images and long-exposure images. These features are ideal for recording fireworks, star trails, sunrises and more.</p>
<p>Both models feature Intelligent Viewfinder II providing approximately 100 percent field of view, while adding the ability to display cropped shooting frames and superimpose a customizable selection of camera settings and data such as dual-mode electronic level display and grid, as well as exposure, white balance, metering, drive, image quality and AF modes. A new Customizable Quick Control Screen, another first for EOS cameras, allows photographers to quickly change frequently used camera settings and functions.</p>
<p>The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras continue the EOS Movie tradition with the ability to shoot in 1080p Full HD up to 30p or 720p HD video up to 60p. A creative Time Lapse Movie function, a first for EOS cameras, takes a continuous series of still photographs and automatically combines them in camera into a Full HD movie file. Interval adjustments can be set from one second to 99 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds. The number of shots possible range from 2 to 3,600 with a maximum of two minutes and 30 seconds of playback time. In addition, high-speed continuous shooting up to five-frames-per-second (fps) at full 50 megapixel resolution allows users to capture fast action.</p>
<p>The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras feature dual card slots for CF and SD memory cards, including Ultra High Speed (UHS-1) SD cards. Built to last, the cameras also feature a shutter durability rating up to 150,000 cycles, the same as the EOS 5D Mark III.</p>
<p><b>Availability

</b>The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R Digital SLR cameras are scheduled to be available through authorized Canon dealers in June 2015 for estimated retail prices of $3,699.00 and $3,899.00 for the body only, respectively.</p>
<p>These devices have not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. These devices are not, and may not be offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained.</p>

Wow, a bit cheaper than anticipated, hope they sell many.
Oh heck, I just bought a new body.

Re: Official: Preorder the Canon EOS 5Ds & Canon EOS 5Ds R

Looks like I was right on the sensor being Canon. We'll see how it does. Given that the announcement isn't touting dynamic range, I'm expecting my prediction to be correct -- not a huge increase.

I also thought it was interesting that my theory of this being positioned as an alternative to medium format was actually mentioned in the announcement. 8)

Looking forward to reviews and image samples...but June? Dang. It was hard enough just waiting the last few days before the announcement. What am I going to do until June??? Oh...wait...I guess I could...take some photos. :p

"The 5Ds has the same dynamic range as 5D III. While some will complain that the closest Nikon-equivalent body has more dynamic range (and more is better), I haven't had an issue with the 5D II's DR. When I can't retain both shadows and highlights in an image, that scene generally needs very significantly more DR and exposure bracketing with HDR handles those instances nicely."

June will give me time to save up again after my G.A.S. explosion on the 100-400II a 1.4III and a month ago on a second hand Phase One 645DF+ and P45+ back with two lenses ... and btw NO .. no buyers remorse after hearing this announcement.

Right on. That's probably how the majority of the target market for these bodies feels, too.

LOL!!! My mind's eye is violated by that mental image! Gave me a good laugh, though. Glad I wasn't drinking something when I read it, or my screen would be dripping. :p

And just like that, the Pentax is starting to look a lot better.

I'm also disappointed by the 150k shutter rating, no inter-changeable focus screens, and identical customizability. It's just a 5d3 with a higher resolution sensor. Still not a 1Ds successor.

the 50mp is still nice, though.

Canon confirms, it is not a Sony Sensor: They are calling it a Canon sensor...

I am not geting it

Really, is this it: two Rebel T6i sensors side-by side = twice the resolution, one stop less high ISO, same DR as always, and video as we had it in 2009.

Makes EUR 4k.

Seriously?

(P.S. I realize it is probably one piece of silicon ;-)

Re: Official: Preorder the Canon EOS 5Ds & Canon EOS 5Ds R

I'm sure it's a fine camera like the 5D Mark III but a bit underwhelming other than the megapixels.
Does it shoot any faster that 5FPS in crop mode?
I'm not huge into video but they could have advanced that a bit.
I am very unwhelmed already with the image quality of the 7D Mark II.
This new camera seems to have a similar but bigger sensor.
It will be interesting to see more detailed reviews and comparisons to Nikon D810 and the Sony full frames.
I hope there is some magic inside that's not apparent on the box.

Re: Official: Preorder the Canon EOS 5Ds & Canon EOS 5Ds R

Interesting to note that they go on sale in Europe in May not June.

In some respects Im not surprised they have not used a Sony sensor, Sony themselves are trying to gain market share so why would they provide a sensor to Canon not yet in a Sony camera. The sensors used by Nikon in the D800 and D600 series are both used by Sony in the A7 series and although Sony has provided 50MP large format sensors to Hasselblad, Phase One & Pentax they dont appear to be after this much smaller market themselves.

The 180mn fab that Canon is still using must now be at the end of the road to stay in the race the next time around in the cycle they have to provide an alternative to what Sony is using & providing Nikon with. Sony are also providing Olympus with sensors but here at least Olympus almost certainly provided the IP for the 5 axis image stabilization in the new Sony A7II which would make sense as Sony owns 20% of Olympus.

Re: Official: Preorder the Canon EOS 5Ds & Canon EOS 5Ds R

Per Bryan Carnathan, it has the same DR as the 5D3 and more noise at base ISO than the 5D3. No thanks. I hope Sony's A7R2 has equivalent DR and noise profile of the A7R with EFC. If so, I will buy it.
