Stretching the constraints of 35mm sensors, Canon has just added the EOS 5DS and the EOS 5DS R to its line-up – both of which come in at 50.6 megapixels. Canon claims that it is the “highest megapixels ever seen in a full frame sensor.”

In terms of ISO, the models have an ISO of 100-6400, which is expandable up to 50-12800. Adding something that has never been offered before, both models new in-camera crop shooting modes: 1.3x, 1.6x and 1:1. Even when cropped to 1.6x, the still images will be taken at 19MP.

“Created to ensure every detail of your exquisite landscape or high-fashion studio shoot is in focus, the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R feature an advanced 61-point AF system, with 41 cross-type points, using EOS Intelligent Tracking and Recognition AF (iTR) to track both faces and colour. To reduce image blur, Canon’s Mirror Vibration Control System uses cams to drive the cameras’ mirror up and down in a highly controlled fashion, avoiding all sudden stops and softening the shutter-release sound,” Canon explained in a press statement.

Canon also added the world’s widest-angle rectilinear zoom lens to its repertoire, the EF 11-24mm f/4L USM.

“The EF 11-24mm f/4L USM is designed to open up an entirely new world of creative opportunities, thanks to its super wide 11-24mm focal range,” Canon ended.
