Canon EOS 5DS R Review
The Canon EOS 5DS R is a camera aimed at professionals that truly want to capture the best still photographs out there. Indeed, the price tag is steep, but if you’re making a living as a photographer and you’re looking to upgrade you main camera, you should definitely look into the 5DS R and treat it as an investment, should you decide to purchase it. One thing that you might find different when it comes to this camera is the “R” in its name. This is not just a gimmick, it’s actually a big difference between the simple 5DS and the version currently reviewed.
The Canon EOS 5DS R comes with an optical low pass filter. This, in turn, gives you the possibility to capture sharper images than with the simple 5DS camera, which will feature a slight blur on the images. However, the sharper images come with a couple downsides, which only appear in certain situations, though. Aliasing and a certain degree of moiré can be experienced, but only if you shoot patterns. Post-processing can deal with this, though.
The sensor of the Canon EOS 5DS R is huge, especially in comparison with other high-end DSLR cameras that you might have come across. The CMOS sensor has a 50MP resolution, allowing you to take UHD images. If you are interested in creating large-size posters out of your images, this is probably one of the best cameras you might use in order to achieve the desired image quality, especially in print. There are various Picture Styles you can use in order to capture the perfect images with respect to the conditions available on site. If you are interested in emphasizing the sharpness of items and their fine edges, the Fine Detail mode is the setting you need.
The camera has an ISO range that goes from 100 to 6400. If you’re interested in expanding it, you can go one step further and set it up to 12800. This way, you can take photos in low-light conditions, as well. Continuous shooting is possible while you use the camera, and you can capture up to 5 frames per second, so you can easily make the most out of any moment and choose the perfect photo out of a set. The Canon EOS 5DS R can also be used to capture video. The large sensor is ideal if you want high quality, 1080p videos shot at 30 frames per second. You may want to connect an external microphone, so a 3.5mm jack is available on the camera’s body.
The autofocus features a 61-point grid that your camera will make great use of in order to easily bring the details in an image to life. The Intelligent Viewfinder II is another great addition which makes shooting extremely easy. Most of the settings you need to do can be seen on the viewfinder, so you won’t have to look away if you’re already set up on a scene. You can configure the way how such info is presented on the viewfinder.
