I’ve been looking into upgrading to a medium format camera for some time now but, my business didn’t warrant that large a format – especially at that high a cost…very high cost. But, Canon has raised the bar for the Digital SLR and came out with a new series of cameras that are extremely sharp at 50 Megapixels. So, of course, I had to order the Canon EOS 5DS-R. I was intrigued by the fact that they have removed the effects of the high pass filter, one of the things that made the medium format cameras so sharp. Don’t get me wrong, I know that the sensor is much smaller and will not have the dynamic range of a medium format camera but, I think it will be an improvement over the 5DMark II.
I pre-ordered from B&H Photo and Video and I’ve been waiting and waiting for delivery. Well, it finally arrived yesterday I studied the new features, ran some tests and even upgraded my software so I can use the new camera in the studio. So, now, I am ready to rock and roll.
When I get the chance, I’ll do some photos with the new camera and show you the results.
