Canon 5Ds & 5Ds R Webcast: Live from B&H


Moderated by Larry Becker, photographer Gregory Heisler and Canon Technical Advisor Rudy Winston have a live discussion about the new Canon 5DS and 5DS R digital cameras. These cameras have already created a year’s worth of buzz with their 50.6MP sensor, as well as anti-vibration and shutter design improvements. The 5DS R distinguishes itself from the 5D S with a filter design that cancels the optical low pass filter effect for even finer details. Heisler speaks of his time using the cameras and compares them to the 5D Mark III in terms of handling, shooting, and resolution. Rudy Winston, the “Yoda of Canon,” talks about the demand for higher-resolution cameras, of Canon’s in-house sensor manufacturing and of where these new cameras stand in the lineup of Canon’s professional DSLRs. He also details the technical aspects that differentiate the two cameras and Heisler shows the sample images he shot with them, and speaks on the importance of eyelashes and nostril silia.
