It's All in the Detail
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.
50.6 Megapixels, Spectacular Performance
The EOS 5DS R DSLR camera offers 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.
Low-Pass Filter Cancellation
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.
Choose Your Application
The EOS 5DS R is a specialized version and is intended for photographers looking to capture the maximum amount of detail possible, and is best suited for landscape, commercial work, or other specialized types of applications. Since the EOS 5DS R offers the LPF cancellation effect, the possibility of moiré and color artifacts is greater than with the EOS 5DS.

Low-pass filter effect cancellation
For photographers wanting the ultimate in high resolution capture, the EOS 5DS R camera has a Low-pass filter* (LPF) effect cancellation. While a Low-pass filter is useful to reduce color artifacts and moiré typical with digital capture, it also reduces detail at the pixel level. With the LPF disabled, the EOS 5DS R takes full advantage of the original resolving power of the camera's 50.6 Megapixel sensor. More detail is captured and retained in the original image, perfect for landscape and commercial applications where pixel-level detail is scrutinized and in situations when the sharpest possible image is needed.
New 50.6 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS sensor
The EOS 5DS R 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 R is a remarkable, high-resolution camera with impressive performance.
EOS Scene Detection System with RGB+IR Metering Sensor
The EOS 5DS R 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 R's AF system.
61-point High Density Reticular AF
For fast, precise AF with sophisticated tracking performance, the EOS 5DS R camera has an advanced, 61-point High Density Reticular AF system with 41 cross-type AF points. The EOS 5DS R'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 R 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 R. To counter the effects of conventional, spring-driven SLR mirrors, the EOS 5DS R 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 R's menu system offers an added protection against camera-shake blur 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.
