The 5DS and 5DR are interesting both for what they are — and what they aren’t.
Of course, we’ll have to wait until next week to get a fuller picture of these new twins, distinguished at this point only by the absence of an anti-aliasing filter in the R.
But what will be especially interesting is to see whether or not Canon has spec’d these next generation 5D’s to align more fully with still photography or to up their game in video, too.
If the purported ISO range of 100-6400 is any indication, it sends a very strong signal that Canon is refocusing on still photography at the expense of video (as if 50MP and no mention of focus assist didn’t already suggest as much!) – but again, we’ll see soon enough.
For still photographers at least, the new camera’s specs are a major leap forward. [bctt tweet=”Next generation 50MP Canon 5DS and 5DR are real”]
