On Canon EOS 5DS R added to studio test scene comparison article (518 comments in total)

Im willing to bet we will have a autofocus crisis when this camera hits the market. This is the beginning of the end of phase detection auto-focus and one of the last popular DSLRs before the big decline. Mirrorless is going to hit strong and hard, only obstacle they still have is subject tracking and lens selection. Auto focus accuracy, single shot AF speed, image quality, shutter speed, HUGE viewfinders, and tons of momentum. I will miss SLR but im excited to see the biggest change in photography since analog to digital.

Snikt228: It's interesting and at first glance the $399 lens is a good deal, but when it requires a $300 adapter it pushes it to the doesn't make sense anymore realm. Unless of course you already have the adapter or have a lot of M-mount lenses which might benefit.

Would have made much more sense to just make it native E-mount especially since it's designed for only A7 series.

My guess this is only the first in the series and they might add other mounts to the system. I wonder if they ever would come out with a autofocus version of the adaptor......

Mssimo: How much money could canon be saving by making own CMOS chip? Im sure with the volume canon has they could get a exclusive custom built sensor from sony and still call it a canon sensor. Olympus turned around when the OMD line used a sony sensor for the first time. Before that sensor technology very weak.

As far as I understand, canon designs and fabricates own sensors and it seems this is holding them back. I can only imagine how much it costs to retool a fab for a newer/smaller process, especially considering the yield will not go up due to fixed sensor sizes.

Mssimo: Typo, label on sample images should be D7000 not D7100.

Maybe also a mixup with the first set of images. D810 whole frame should have a wider field of view correct? I'm viewing this on mobile version of the site.

Earth Art: With no CFA how does the high ISO performance compare to color sensors?

The camera starts out at ISO 320, this could be looked at the ISO 100 of monochrome

If you can reduce the image down to full frame, I bet f stop will drop to f4 or maybe even f2.8.

In a few cameras with "ISO Irreverence". Would you recommend not to use anything but base ISO up to the point where the camera starts to use hardware amplification?

On the D810, i use the flat profile (with ADR might even be better). This gives more accurate view of clipping. Most prographers use standard or even worse vivid. This will lead you to underexposing images by 1-2 stops.

Ohh...owned by mr jpino79. Im sure you just use a camera phone from 1998 because you are so good. Im so jealous of you. I should just sell all my gear and hire someone like you to take pictures for me. -----Great way to stay on the topic by the way.

I respect Olympus and now richo for pushing nikon and canon to be better. Olympus had the first dust reduction system now standard on all DSLRs. In body IS, Art filters, "digital" lenses made to work with thick sensor glass. You heard of something called liveview? Olympus had it and it was called a "gimmick". How about mirrorless? Olympus and Pentax has some of the best weather sealing on the market. In the past few months we see use of the in body IS to provide higher resolution and full color at every pixel. Its amazing they are able to innovate with such small budgets. Canon is still using the same sensor technology for the past 5 years. Canon and Nikon have great cameras, but they lack much innovation. --Nikon Owner

Im a pentax fanboy? I have owned the D700, two D800s, two D800e, and now a single D810. I also owned a canon 5D mark II and lots of olympus gear. Good try to discredit my opinion by assuming im a fanboy.

CLS lighting system? That is old technology. I am unable to think of anything really new canon and Nikon has come out with in quite a while. Nikon cant even manage to add electronic shutter to anything other than mirror lockup. No custom delayed shutter (only options are 1 2 3 secs). I can go on, these are just a few of the basics they could do with a firmware if they wanted to.

Mssimo: Just confirmed that HDR images can also be merged into pano. Welcome the HDR Raw Pano.

I noticed overall the Lightroom pano is not as cleaver as the photoshop one. It works without HDR right?

Mssimo: Just confirmed that HDR images can also be merged into pano. Welcome the HDR Raw Pano.

I noticed that the pano still retailed the -10 to +10 exposure latitude vs the typical -5 to +5 of single raw files.

What is your conclusion on the image quality?

My workflow was, create HDR of every frame of the pano, then create the Pano from a series of HDR images. Would this be different from creating 3 panos then trying to merge them into a HDR?

Marksphoto: Any useful new features for wedding photographers?

Not really interested in stitching and hdr here. We need a more robust book module, clone feature from selected images, maybe a good website building module... you know, the stuff that will get us through our workflow on the daily basis.

I would say performance is the biggest upgrade a wedding photographer could ever wish for and this version has it. Now uses GPU. Big deal on laptops that don't have the best CPUs. Some functions are over 7000% faster now.

If you do not see Adobe Lightroom CC on your download list:

Try signing out of the Creative Cloud desktop application (Gear, Preferences, Sign Out), then sign back in.

This worked for me.
