Canon is reportedly working on a DSLR camera to replace both the 5DS and 5DS R big-megapixel shooters. It seems like the name and release date details of the upcoming device have been confirmed by the rumor mill. Anyway, here is what we have learned about the DSLR so far!
The big day for Canon fans has arrived! The Japan-based company has finally entered big-megapixel territory by introducing the world’s highest-resolution DSLRs with full frame sensors. Both the Canon 5DS and 5DS R are now official with 50.6-megapixel sensors and many other exciting features for photographers worldwide.
Canon will hold a major announcement event on February 5. Before the introduction of its big-megapixel DSLR cameras, an insider has leaked more Canon 5Ds / 5Ds R details. The new source has denied the rumors that the sensor is entirely made by Sony, stating that Canon has designed it, while Sony will simply make it in its factories.
A trusted source has leaked a more detailed Canon EOS 5Ds specs list. The new information confirms past information regarding the amount of megapixels offered by its sensor. It appears that the total pixel count is of 53 megapixels, albeit the effective amount (the one usually reported by the makers) stands at 50.6 megapixels.
This is the day that Canon fans have been waiting for: there is solid proof that the company is developing a high-resolution DSLR. Sources have leaked the first Canon 5Ds specs and its photo, while confirming that the camera will employ a 50.6-megapixel sensor. Meanwhile, the 5Ds R is said to be the version without an AA filter.
The rumor mill is once again stating that Sony will be the maker of the sensor found in Canon’s high-resolution DSLR cameras. It is said that a patent exchange between the two companies will lead to the Canon 5Ds shooters employing a Sony-made 53-megapixel sensor with Exmor technology.
Canon will allegedly introduce several products next week on February 6. On this date, a lot of non-disclosure agreements will expire, therefore the company must announce the products in question. The list includes the Canon 5DS, 750D, EOS M3, and some PowerShots cameras as well as the EF 11-24mm f/4L USM lens.
Canon is once again rumored to be working on a couple of DSLRs with big-megapixel sensors. Sources are reporting that the so-called Canon 5Ds cameras will employ 50-megapixel full frame sensors and that they will be revealed this March. This means that they will miss the CP+ 2015 event taking place in mid-February.
More details about the future replacement of the 5D Mark III have been revealed. It appears that the DSLR will actually have three successors instead of one. Two of them will employ a big-megapixel sensor, while the third will feature a low-megapixel model and will become the sought-after Canon 5D Mark IV.
