The Freedom of High Resolution
Marking a new standard in high-resolution digital SLR photography, the Canon EOS 5DS camera shatters the status quo with a new 50.6 Megapixel, full-frame CMOS sensor. Perfect for commercial and fine art photography, or any other application that calls for extremely high-resolution, the EOS 5DS is the ultimate combination of EOS performance and ultra-high megapixel capture. It features an advanced, 61-point High Density Reticular AF system that includes 41 cross-type AF points and EOS iTR AF for precise AF in numerous situations. An anti-flicker function helps provide consistent exposure and color during continuous shooting, while a built-in bulb timer and intervalometer expands creative opportunities without the need for an additional remote control. A refined mirror control mechanism reduces vibration and Time Release Lag setting minimizes shutter blur for sharp image capture. New features like a crop function of 1.3x and 1.6x and a Custom Quick Control screen are complemented by advanced, multi-featured Full HD Movie capture, with Time Lapse Movie, and much more. With EOS performance and 50.6 Megapixel Capture, the EOS 5DS revolutionizes high-resolution photography!


    New 50.6 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS sensor
    The EOS 5DS camera features Canon's newest full-frame CMOS sensor: at 50.6 Megapixels, it's the highest resolution sensor in the history of EOS. It captures 8712 x 5813 effective pixels, delivering images with an unprecedented level of realism perfect for large-scale commercial printing, fine art, significant crops and any number of other high-end applications. Thanks to this amazing sensor, engineered to work in concert with dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors, the EOS 5DS is a remarkable, high-resolution camera with impressive performance.

    EOS Scene Detection System with RGB+IR Metering Sensor
    The EOS 5DS camera has an amazing iSA Intelligent Subject Analysis system that employs an independent RGB 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 a brilliant foundation to the EOS 5DS'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 41 cross-type AF points. The EOS 5DS's AF system is incredibly sensitive to changes in composition, making adjustments quickly to help ensure consistent, sharp AF. A new RGB+IR AE (with approximately 150,000 dots) sensor monitors subject motion, and Canon's iTR Intelligent Tracking and Recognition system synchronizes the active AE 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 50.6 Megapixel 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 super 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 EOS 5DS's menu system offers an added protection against camera shake by setting the shutter release time intentionally longer so the camera does not begin the next exposure until after the impact of the camera's mirror has diffused.

    Compatible with the new optional Wi-Fi Adapter* W-E1 accessory**, which enables Wi-Fi® capabilities including easy transfer of images to a compatible smartphone or tablet***, and remote still shooting.
    The EOS 5DS camera is compatible with the new optional Wi-Fi Adapter* W-E1 accessory** for convenient Wi-Fi® capabilities. When inserted into the camera's SD card slot, the W-E1 enables you to wirelessly view and transfer images when connected to a compatible smart device with the Camera Connect mobile app*** installed, along with remote shooting for stills and the ability to remotely change camera settings. These Wi-Fi® functions can also be utilized when wirelessly connected to a computer equipped with the EOS Utility software.
