NAB PRODUCTS CANON SHOWING NEW ULTRA-HIGH RESOLUTION, FULL-FRAME DSLR CAMERAS MELVILLE, NY — At NAB, Canon USA, Inc. ( is introducing the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R DSLR cameras featuring an ultra-high resolution 35mm DSLR format. The new EOS models incorporate a newly-designed Canon 50.6 megapixel full-frame CMOS image sensor and Dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors for high image quality and processing speed. Maximizing the potential of the new 50.6MP sensor, the low-pass filter effect in the EOS 5DS R model is cancelled. The cancellation of the low-pass filter helps deliver sharp images, squeezing the most out of every pixel. Both cameras also include a 61-Point High Density Reticular AF array, including up to 41 cross-type AF points and EOS iTR AF for high precision autofocus. The EOS Scene Detection system features a 150,000-pixel RGB+IR 252-zone metering sensor that provides enhanced precision and performance. In support of such a high-resolution imaging sensor, the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras were designed to minimize camera shake and sig- nificantly improve stability via a reinforced chassis, baseplate and tripod lug to improve rigidity. A new Picture Style called "Fine Detail" has been added to enhance the sharpness of JPEGs and EOS Movies with three new settings: Strength, Fineness and Threshold. The cameras feature dual card slots for CF and SD memory cards, including Ultra High Speed (UHS-1) SD cards. Both models are scheduled for availability through authorized Canon dealers in June 2015 for estimated retail prices of $3,699 and $3,899 (body only), respectively.
