EOS 5Ds R

Canon's Highest Resolution Full Frame DSLR Camera

View Launch Video

With all the features and capabilities of the EOS 5DS, the EOS 5DS R camera offers the potential for even greater sharpness and fine detail for specialized situations. It features the same Canon designed and manufactured 50.6 Megapixel sensor, with the low-pass filter* (LPF) effect cancelled to provide even more fine edge sharpness and detail for critical subjects such as detailed landscapes, and other situations where getting the sharpest subject detail is a priority.

*The possibility of moiré and colour artifacts is greater due to the LPF cancellation function.

  • Recording Functions
    1.  Standard
      * Records to either the CF card or SD card.
    2. Auto switch card
      * When the current card becomes full, the camera switches to the other card automatically.
    3. Record separately
      * The CF card and SD card record the same image at a different image recording quality (L, M, S1, S2, S3, RAW, M-RAW, S-RAW)
    4. Record to multiple
      * Both the CF card and SD card record the same image at the same image recording quality. (Also applies to RAW+JPEG, M+JPEG, and SRAW+JPEG)  
  • Backup RecordingImages recorded in a card can be copied to the other card
  • File NumberingThe following three types of file numbers can be set:

    (1) Continuous numbering

    * The continuous numbering of captured images will continue even after you replace the camera's card. (The numbering continues even when the folder changes.)

    (2) Auto reset

    * When you replace the camera's card, the numbering will be reset to start from 0001. If the new card already contains images, the numbering will continue from the last recorded image in the card.

    (3) Manual reset

    * Resets the file number to 0001, and creates a new folder automatically.
  • RAW + JPEG Simultaneous RecordingThe image-recording quality can be selected in any combination of the three RAW and eight JPEG recording quality settings.
  • Colour SpaceSelectable between sRGB and Adobe RGB
  • Picture StyleAuto, Standard, Portrait, Landscape, Neutral, Faithful, Monochrome, User Defined 1-3
