I had the privilege of shooting with a pre-production Canon 5Ds the last few days. What a camera!! Below is a brief review of that new camera Canon 5Ds, I will post a full review in the next few weeks on my website.
Canon 5Ds - New Features:
Take the 5D MkIII’s body, install a 50 Million pixel full frame sensor into it and add some of the 7D MkII’s feature plus some brand new features never seen before and you have a 5DS. The 5DS inherited the following features from the 7D MkII: Interval Timer, Bulb Timer, Anti Flickering and as well as the Viewfinder display settings where you can see the Electronic Level, and shooting function information in the viewfinder.
The all new features are, and I will talk about them in detail below:
Cropping feature with masked viewfinder display, Customizable “Q” screen, New Picture Style called Fine Detail, New Auto White Balance called AWB White Priority, new settings under Mirror Lockup and the ability to shoot Time Lapse Movies under the Movie menu. In the camera is an all-new damping mechanism for the mirror, same AF system as the 5D MkIII but with added and improved iTR system that comes from the 7D MkII. Same 150,000 pixel metering sensor as the 7D MkII, plus the ability to set over/under exposure compensation in Manual mode when using Auto ISO. Let’s look closer at the some of these new features.
