Canon is one of the top choices for prosumers and professionals when it comes to DSLRs. The company has given a boost to photography with its wide choices of lenses and accessories. It is now trying to take on all its competition in the premium segment with the introduction of the 5DS and 5DS R.

Canon has packed in a mammoth 50 megapixels into the camera that makes it the highest resolution full frame camera ever. The 5DS R is almost the same as the 5DS, but it gives you the option for canceling the anti-aliasing filter which helps give much finer details.

The cameras are powered by dual DIGIC 6 processor and offers 61-point autofocus system that would provide it with snappy autofocus capabilities. The offering of 50 MP also means that the camera allows you to shoot 19 MP images on cropped APS-C sensor, which is fantastic.

What maybe a disappointment to some would be the lack of advanced video features in the camera. Canon DSLRs are seen as a great tool for video production, but this camera doesn’t offer any extra features for video shooting. It does offer the usual 1080p video recording.

Overall, these new products from Canon’s stable seem only for the battle-hardened photographers and will help them create spell bounding images. The Canon 5DS is priced at $3700 while the 5Ds R will be $3900, and they will be available June onwards. For the normal folks going on their Sunday morning photo walks, your 18-20MP DSLR would work just fine, you would be better off investing in quality lenses for your camera instead of these monstrosities.
