Canon 5DS Overview

  • 1Description

Comprising the essential components needed to capture and store high-resolution photographs and movies, the Canon EOS 5DS DSLR Camera Body with Storage Kit from B&H includes the advanced full-frame DSLR along with two memory cards and an external hard drive for backing-up and saving your files.

  • Canon EOS 5DS DSLR Camera (Body Only)

    The EOS 5DS DSLR Camera from Canon is the long-awaited follow-up to the vaunted 5D Mark III and brings with it new technology and a number of significant upgrades, placing it in very lofty territory for a DSLR. Featuring a full-frame 50.6MP CMOS sensor, the camera captures ultra-high resolution images suitable for large-scale printing and extensive, creative cropping. The Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors provide the wherewithal to handle this abundance of information, enabling fast performance speeds and top-of-the-line image quality. The 5DS also features advanced video capability including HD 1080p capture at 30 fps and a Time Lapse movie function which takes still photos at set intervals and combines them into a full HD movie.

    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.

    New 50.6 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS Sensor
    Newly designed 50.6MP full-frame CMOS helps deliver ultra-high resolution images for large-scale printing and extensive, creative cropping, while Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors enable top-of-the-line image quality and processing speed.
    Fine Detail Mode in Picture Style
    Taking advantage of its sensor's high-resolution capturing power, the EOS 5DS camera has a new Picture Style called Fine Detail mode. Fine Detail emphasizes fine edges and patterns or textures by setting the camera's Sharpness sub-settings, fineness and threshold to their minimum and by lowering contrast settings as well. Prioritizing minute details in the image allows for better gradations, more detailed textures and fine edges for smoother, more polished photographs.
    EOS Scene Detection System with RGB+IR Metering Sensor
    The EOS 5DS camera has the iSA Intelligent Scene Analysis system that employs an independent RGB+IR light sensor with approximately 150,000-pixel resolution. This sensor enables Canon's Intelligent Tracking and Recognition system (iTR AF) that detects and tracks subjects, automatically switching the AF point to optimize tracking. With new tracking algorithms tailored to recognize faces and colors, this system serves as the foundation to the camera's AF system.
    61-Point High Density Reticular AF
    For fast, precise AF with sophisticated tracking performance, the EOS 5DS camera has an advanced, 61-point High Density Reticular AF system with up to 41 cross-type AF points. The AF system is sensitive to changes in composition, making adjustments quickly to help ensure consistent, sharp AF. A new RGB+IR AF sensor (with approximately 150,000 pixels) monitors subject motion, and Canon's iTR Intelligent Tracking and Recognition system synchronizes the active AF point with the subject's motion, helping to ensure that AF precision is maintained. With focus modes dedicated to the particulars of the shooting environment, the EOS 5DS realizes a level of focus accuracy befitting its 50.6MP sensor.
    Advanced Mirror Control Mechanism and Shutter Release Time Lag
    The camera shake that occurs from the impact of an SLR's mirror can leave blurred details in the recorded image. This effect is magnified when working with a high-resolution sensor like the one found in the EOS 5DS camera. To counter the effects of conventional, spring-driven SLR mirrors, the EOS 5DS features a newly developed Mirror Vibration Control system. The camera's mirror is not controlled by springs but instead is driven by a small motor and cams. This system suppresses the impact typical of the camera's mirror, significantly reducing impact and its effects on the image. A new Time Release Lag setting, easily accessed on the menu system, offers added protection against camera shake by setting the shutter release time intentionally longer so the camera does not begin the exposure until after the impact of the camera's mirror has diffused.
    Anti-Flicker Feature
    With Canon's anti-flicker function, the camera is able to deliver accurate results under cycling lighting situations. Under flickering light, such as fluorescent lighting, a fast shutter speed may result in an irregular exposure. The anti-flicker function detects the frequency and phase of the flicker and captures images near the point of peak brightness when the subject is most likely well illuminated.
    1.3x and 1.6x Crop Shooting
    For still photography, the EOS 5DS features the flexibility of a cropping feature that extends the shooting effect 1.3x and 1.6x. With 50.6MP capture, cropped shots are possible with resolution to spare. Images recorded at 1.3x (APS-H) are approximately 30.5MP (6768 x 4512) Large/Fine JPEG, while images recorded at 1.6x (APS-C) are approximately 19.6MP (5424 x 3616) Large/Fine JPEG. Particularly useful in extending the range of telephoto lenses, the crop function also improves the subject tracking capability with almost the entire frame covered with AF points. Image cropping can be displayed in the viewfinder either masked or overlaid with an outline showing the cropped area, and in Live View shooting the image is cropped by the effect chosen. Aspect ratios can also be defined, with the EOS 5DS shooting in 1:1, 4:3, and 16:9 ratios, in addition to the default 3:2.
    Full HD 30p Movie Capability
    The Canon 5DS supports full HD 1080/30p movie capability and Time Lapse Movie function, which takes still photographs at set intervals and combines them into a full HD movie file, is provided. In addition HD and VGA resolution, numerous frame rates and ALL-I and IPB compressions are supported. Still images can be captured during video recording. A jack for an external microphone is provided.
    Built-In Intervalometer and Bulb Timer
    The EOS 5DS offers time-lapse fixed-point shooting and long exposures without the need for a remote control. The interval timer takes from 1 to 99 shots at pre-selected intervals (from 1 second to 99 hours 59 minutes 59 seconds, or unlimited), ideal for shooting flowers as they bloom or clouds drifting through the sky. Captured exposures can even be collected and saved as an HD movie. Its built-in bulb timer keeps the shutter open for a designated amount of time, perfect for night photography, to capture the flow of traffic on a street corner, or any other situation where long exposure photography is warranted.
    3.2" ClearView II LCD Monitor
    The 3.2" ClearView II LCD monitor has 1,040,000 dots, anti-reflective construction and features Canon's ClearView technology for a bright, sharp display in any number of shooting situations. It's ideal for reviewing settings and images, as well as for shooting in Live View mode. In Live View, grid lines can be displayed in 9 sections, 24 sections, or 9 sections with diagonals, as can the electronic level. For image review, the camera has a dedicated Magnify/Reduce button for zooming in or out (up to 16x) simply by pressing the button and turning the Main Dial. Images can be protected or erased quickly, individually or in batches, and slideshows can be created with some or all images and can be sequenced by date, folders, movies, stills or rating. A clear and simple feature guide found in the camera's menu provides detailed reference information whenever needed.
    Intelligent Viewfinder II
    The Intelligent Viewfinder II makes it easy to both shoot, change and confirm camera settings and shooting modes all without looking away from the viewfinder. Displaying approximately 100% of the composition, the viewfinder can show settings like shooting mode, exposure level, white balance, drive mode, AF operation, metering mode, recording format, an electronic level and more. All of this information can be displayed by or superimposed easily over the image for review while shooting, and multiple views are customizable through the camera's simple user interface.
    Customizable Quick Control Screen
    In addition to a conventional Quick Control screen, the EOS 5DS camera features a Quick Control button that enables the photographer to easily access the settings critical for the task at hand. The user can specify features to display, as well as their location and size on the screen.
    Continuous Shooting
    High-speed continuous shooting up to 5.0 fps allows you to capture fast-moving action at full resolution.
    USB 3.0 and Other Connectors
    The 5DS provides support for USB 3.0 connections as well as mini HDMI out, 3-pin input, and a PC terminal. The USB 3.0 digital terminal offers fast transfer to PCs and printers, plus connectivity to Canon's WFT-E7 (Version 2) for wireless transfer and Wi-Fi compatibility.

Canon 5DS Reviews

EOS 5DS DSLR Camera Body with Storage Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 145.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Landscape Camera! I use this camera strictly on a tripod for landscapes. The quality of the image is amazing and manual focus is excellent through live view. I did landscapes in the past with a 4x5 camera so manual focus for me is extremely simple with this camera. I basically use the 5DS R as a smaller digital version of a view camera but without the movements which I miss. Tilt shift lenses are still too limited in movements to even consider. I am using the EOX 24-70mm 2.8 lens. Using live view you suck the power out of the batteries quickly so I have 8 batteries in case I am not in a area where I can easily recharge the batteries. This has become the perfect landscape camera for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and Cost Effective I have operated the camera for about 2 weeks now. I agree with most of the reviews; however, let me make one additional observation: This is not a single quality camera at 50 megapixels at raw. There are options to the pixel count. To conserve your CF Card and your hard drive space, you can stop down to 28 megapixels and use that as your standard for your raw shooting. Leave the 50 megapixels for that special shot. To drive home the case of why it makes sense to consider purchasing this camera, your current 5D Mark III peaks at 22 megapixels raw. So you have already upgraded if you merely stay at 28 megapixels. This makes the 5Ds a very versatile tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy this camera again I bought this camera as a back up for my 5D mkIII for my professional work and to see how well it would perform for my personal work with nature and birding. I haven't been able to test it yet birding but as a second body for my real estate photography it works great! It is especially nice to be able to shoot medium RAW files at 28mp and only shoot in 50mp when necessary. When you do need 50mp, it's great to be able to match up all Canon's great L-glass to this body. I have a Pentax 645Z 50mp I use in studio for clients and I love it's files and dynamic range but this camera has the advantage of all that great glass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5DSR is a great camera, love the mega piexls I purchased my 5DSR about a year ago from B&H and use it with my other Canon bodies. I have shot it in SE Asia and throughout the Mediterranean with great results. I can shoot and crop and still have more pixels left over than most other cameras. The resolution for landscapes is fantastic. It is an excellent travel camera because you can crop marginal shots that cannot be retaken and still come up with excellent results. The detail for wildlife shots is excellent though the frame rate is slow for action shots. Photographing the stained glass in the Gaudi Cathedral in Barcelona yielded excellent results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am thrilled with the results with this Eos5Dsr I added this to my EOS MARK 5DIII after waiting a year after introduction because 0f the Canon warnings I had heard. I have shot about 1000 images of various types of landscape and architecture with it. I cannot detect any Moire. That is, I see no parallel line distortion with steel roofing,log cabins, fenceposts in line, or rock palisades on sheer rock walls. I have not detected any color or hue distortion. The texture detail I am getting on surfaces is impressive. I specialize in 17 by 24 prints and it has improved these. I do not do lab quality testing. I use Canon lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A set of outstanding products Upfront disclosure - I am a retired professional photographer and I love digital photography. With that bias out of the way, the Canon EOS 5Ds is an outstanding product. I tend to skip an upgrade cycle so I did not get the Mark III and used the EOS 5DMark II as my work horse camera. With the new 5Ds Canon has made lots of strides forward. The focus operation on this camera is superb, as is the exposure. The fact that you can throttle the image size down (who would have EVER thought we would even give attention to that!) and pick the magnification factor, is a major plus. The 3TB drive from G DRIVE is a fine product and a welcome addition to my picture storage space. I'm a happy camper!
Date published: 2016-01-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ultimate Photography Machine The resolution is mind blowing, the AF is blazing fast and accurate, no AFMA was required for my lenses (tested with Reikan FoCal). The high ISO is quite decent, better than I expected. The camera body itself feels extremely solid. The only wish it would be to get metering in the focusing area / spot for this camera. My two suggestions (5c) to the potential buyers: handheld the camera works best with stabilized lenses. For a studio work when MF is required with the fine lenses like the Otus or the Zeiss 135 APO - a magnifier for the live view is very helpful (see the recommended items).
Date published: 2015-10-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My choice for wedding photography Tonal gradation is phenomenal. I cannot believe no one is talking about that. The amount of shades of gray in the image equals to a cleaner transition between darker shade to lighter shade. Future proof 50MP. Sharpness like no other. Color science and photo realism. The quality, for me as a photographer, seems like what DVD is to Bluray. 5D Mark 3 is to this camera. A+ for photography. There is the 100MP larger format cameras, but that is 50K league. For 5K, I haven't seen these kind of Sharp, natural looking photos anywhere else.

question

Can you tell more about new auto white balance?

There is not a new system just simply and added feature to AWB setting. Normally ambience priority is how we all know AWB and you still have that. Canon added a White Priority which means you are not using ambient light as the gauge and have chosen a specific white to prioritize when AWB is chosen in camera.

question

is this camera compatible with an et87 lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately, I am not familiar with the lens you list above. The only ET-87 we have listed in our inventory is a lens hood, which is designed for use on the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens. If your question is regarding the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens, yes, it is compatible with the Canon EOS 5DS DSLR camera. If not, we would need the full name or B&H number of the lens in question to check its compatibility for your needs.

question

Do either the 5D or the 5DS have built in wi-fi connectivity?Do either of them have a self-cleaning sensor?
Asked by: Miichael D.
As of today aside from the WFT-E7 wifi adaptor, you can also use Canon W-E1 Wi-Fi Adapter (which inserts into the SD card slot) to give your 5Ds or 5DsR wifi capabilities (transfer images, remote control, etc.), note that you will only be able to write to the CF card then.Both of them have self cleaning sensors.

question

I have a 5D Mark III with a BG-E11 grip using LP-E6 batteries. The 5Ds comes with a LP-E6N.Can I use the BG-E11 with one LP-EN and one LP-E6 together ? Or will the different amp capacities cause a problem ??
Asked by: William L.
You will need to use the same battery types together (i.e. LP-E6N only with other LP-E6N batteries).

question

Will be possible to link the Spot Metering to the AF Single Point activated, like in the 1DX?That's not possible on the 5D mkIII, where spot reading is only possible on central AF point. It would be a great and useful feature when working in highly contrasted conditions.
Asked by: Marco M.
Unfortunately not. The 1D X remains the only camera in Canon's lineup with this feature.
