In pictures: Canon's monster 50.6-megapixel EOS 5Ds and EOS 5DsR

The full-frame EOS 5D series just got a major jolt of pixels

  • Canon EOS 5Ds: a full-format camera with a 35mm CMOS sensor that now packs 50.6-megapixels. The rush of pixels up the clarity of images and boosts the ability of the camera to work for large photographic projects such as billboards and magazine covers.

  • Canon EOS 5Ds: twin Digic 6 processors are used to crunch the data from the large sensor, as well as reduce noise, and facilitate fast frame rates.

  • Canon EOS 5Ds: up to five frames per second can be captured in high-speed continuous mode.

  • Canon EOS 5Ds: there is a 61-point autofocus system that features tracking and recognition of a subject.

  • Canon EOS 5Ds: it's built from magnesium alloy, is weather resistant, there is a 3.2in anti-reflective screen, a 100 per cent viewfinder, and there are new customisable quick controls.

  • Canon EOS 5DsR: the EOS 5DsR is the same as the EOS 5Ds, except that is also has the ability to bypass the low-pass filter. This means the camera captures images that are sharper, owing to the fact that they are not passed through the low-pass filter, which would otherwise blur them. It's ideally suited for landscape photographers. Both the EOS 5Ds and the EOS 5DsR will be availabe in June 2015.
