Canon EOS 5DS Review - The main feature of Canon EOS 5DS is the full-frame sensor resolution of 50.6 Mp, with a sensitivity level limited to a reasonable ISO 6 400 (ISO 12 800 in the extended range). In principle, the step is right, because physics can not be fooled, and at a resolution of 50 Mp such ultra-high sensitivity levels would cause catastrophic noises, and so the manufacturer restricts the photographer to fully working values.
As for the resolution, the camera under test obviously pretends to be the "budget" replacement of the inexpensive medium-format camera, the Pentax 645Z. Canon made quite sensible, having allocated for EOS 5DS a separate niche, because such a high resolution could be taken by experienced photographers with bayonets. So the new camera does not pretend to the laurels of Canon EOS 6D or Canon EOS 5D Mark III, designed for a wider range of tasks.
The camera is externally almost an exact copy of the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, and the similarity is so great that only the balance can catch the difference. Small differences visible to the eye, there are under the rubber caps: first, there is no connector for headphones - the video recording function for the device is deeply secondary; Second, under one of the stubs is hidden the USB 3.0 port, whereas the EOS 5D Mark III had a usual USB 2.0. The use of high-speed port is quite justified, because the weight of 51-megapixel images is simply huge.
The case is made of magnesium alloy, which remains the rule of good tone for manufacturers of professional photographic equipment. Assembly, of course, impeccable, and the inscription Made in Japan on the belly-seated and does not play absolutely no role, but it warms the soul.
