Canon 5Ds and 5Ds R Announced

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 and dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors. Perfect for studio, commercial,
fine art, landscape, architectural, portrait and wedding photography, and
large-scale printing, the EOS 5DS represents the ultimate combination of EOS
performance and ultra-high megapixel capture. Joining the EOS 5DS is the
EOS 5DS R, which adds an LPF* (low-pass filter) cancellation effect, for specialized
applications where pixel-level sharpness and detail are desired.
The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras offer the highest resolution capture in the
history of EOS: a Canon designed and manufactured, full-frame 50.6 Megapixel
CMOS sensor. It captures 8712 x 5813 effective pixels, delivering images with wide
dynamic range and an incredible level of realism perfect for large-scale printing,
fine art, significant crops and any number of other high-end applications. A new
Picture Style setting, called Fine Detail, helps emphasize fine edges, patterns and
textures. Thanks to the dual DIGIC 6 sensors, photographs and HD movies
are captured and processed with remarkable speed.
While sharing the same 50.6 Megapixel sensor and photographic
capabilities, the difference between the EOS 5DS and the EOS 5DS R
cameras is EOS 5DS R’s low-pass filter cancellation effect.


Standard on every EOS SLR (with the exception of
the EOS 5DS R) the low-pass filter serves to
eliminate false colors and moiré patterns that can
be recorded by the camera’s sensor.

LPF Cancellation (EOS 5DS R)

While the LPF's purpose is to minimize the moiré
and false color artifacting inherent in digital
imaging, it does reduce resolving power of the
sensor. The EOS 5DS R camera's LPF cancellation effect delivers greater sharpness and finer
detail, useful in specialized situations, but the
possibility of moiré and color artifacting is
greater however. Fortunately, there are methods to
help eliminate these effects while capturing and
during post-processing.
