First 50-megapixel DSLR camera

canon-5ds (1)

Canon‘s latest DSLR has one simple headline spec: a 50 megapixel sensor. The 5DS (and its sibling the 5DS R) can capture more detail than any previous DSLR. It’s a huge hike in resolution from the previous record holder, Nikon’s 36.3-megapixel D810.

Canon hopes to bring medium-format picture quality to DSLRs, and for resolution it certainly matches the likes of Hasselblad. The resolution is more than double that of the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, which the 5DS closely resembles.

The full-frame 50.6-megapixel sensor can generate images with an 8,788×5,792 resolution.
With the right light and lens you should be able to make the most of the sensor .Canon also offers 1.3x and 1.6x crop modes, which let you reach out further with your lenses when shooting distant subjects. The high resolution means you still get a30-megapixel image at 1.3x and a 19-megapixel one at 1.6x.

Focusing shouldn’t be a problem with 61 focus points across the sensor, 41 of which are the more sensitive cross-type.Image handling is done by dual DIGIC 6 processors, which means the 5DS can manage 5fps continuous shooting at the full resolution.

USB3 is on offer too, which should be handy forgetting all that data from the camera –and at 60MB for a single Raw image,you’ll appreciate the extra speed.

It’s not intended for video,as there’s no 4K shooting mode and no uncompressed HDMI output. You can create time-lapse videos in camera, though, and a bulb timer allows for exposures of up to four days.

The 5DS is ideal for shooting beautifully detailed portraits and landscapes, things that don’t move much. To this end, Canon has strengthened the tripod mount for improved stability. It’s also redesigned the mirror to limit vibrations that might reduce the sharpness of the shot.

To that end, the Canon 5DS R comes with a low-pass cancellation filter. We’re trying to find out from Canon exactly how this works, but it seems to have the same effect as the low-pass filter in other DSLRs, giving greater sharpness but with the risk of moire patterns in regular, man-made textures.
