The new Canon 5DS and 5DS R were based on a previous Canon DSLR camera, known as the 5D Mk III.
The new cameras will have many features in common with the 5D Mk III, such as the way the controls are arranged, the ergonomics and the weather sealing.
But Canon says that the big news is that the new cameras will sport a 50MP full-frame sensor.
According to Canon, the new cameras will be available for sale this summer. Canon also revealed the prices of the two new devices: the 5DS body will cost $3,699, while the 5DS R body costs $3,899.
The new Canon cameras look almost identical, the only difference being that the 5DS R comes with a feature that can cancel the softening effect allowed by the a special low-pass filter which is located in front of the camera’s sensors.
The new Canon devices also come with dual DIGIC 6 image processor, which help handle the huge amount of data caused by 50MP photos.
The shooting rate of the new cameras is at 5 fps, which is a good one compared to other super-high resolution DSLRs cameras available on the market at the moment.
The new Canon 5DS and 5DS R have the same autofocus system as the one featured on 5D Mark III. This means that the user can enjoy a 61-point AF array and other options that allow adjusting the way the feature functions; users can also customize it according to the shooting situation.
Canon revealed that its upcoming devices will also feature Intelligent Tracking and Recognition, which provides the user with more precision when trying to get a good focus on objects in movement.
The 2 cameras will come with an intervalometer, which is used for capturing time-lapse images.
The new Canon cameras also feature dual memory card slots for CF and SD cards, and will be compatible with Ultra High Speed SD cards.
