Canon today launched two flagship EOS cameras; the EOS 5DS R and EOS 5DS. At 50.6-megapixels, the EOS 5DS R and EOS 5DS come equipped with a 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor and dual DIGIC 6 image processors to offer the highest image resolution in Canonâ€™s extensive range of DSLR cameras to date.
â€œThe EOS 5DS R and EOS 5DS mark a milestone in Canonâ€™s range of DSLRs, with their breakthrough high image resolution in the 35mm format,â€ said Wataru Nishioka, President and CEO, Canon Marketing Malaysia. â€œBoth cameras are an excellent choice for discerning users who appreciate fine details, thanks to their ultra-high image resolution and excellent range of features.â€
â€œCanon is also delighted to introduce an all-new 4K camcorder series beginning with the XC10 â€“ which allows users to capture exceptional 4K-resolution videos, as well as high-quality still images,â€ Nishioka added.
EOS 5DS R & EOS 5DS: Canonâ€™s Dynamic Duo
With a 50.6-megapixel 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor, the EOS 5DS R and EOS 5DS have by far the highest resolution in Canonâ€™s history of EOS cameras. At this sensor resolution, images that are dramatically trimmed or cropped will still retain optimum quality and details for print.
With Optical Low-Pass Filter cancellation (LPF), the EOS 5DS R captures incredibly detailed and sharp images whereas the EOS 5DS reduces the moirÃ© effect using the optical LPF. Both cameras are well suited for users who take still landscape and studio photos, as well as commercial images for large-format printing.
Powered by the advanced Dual DIGIC 6 image processors, both the EOS 5DS R and EOS 5DS produce a high-speed readout capability and maximum continuous shooting speed of 5 frames per second (fps), despite the large image data size that comes with 50.6-megapixel image quality.
Whatâ€™s more, the AF system in these cameras is a high-precision 61-point high-density reticular AF on par with that of the EOS 5D Mark III. It responds sensitively to subject distance and adjusts automatically â€“ even with the subtlest changes in composition.
The EOS 5DS R and EOS 5DS also feature a newly developed mirror vibration control system to counteract the effect of shaky hands.
XC10: Canonâ€™s debut 4K camcorder
The XC10 steps out as Canonâ€™s first of a brand new series of digital video camcorders supporting 4K-resolution video. Targeting professional and advanced-amateur videographers, the camcorder is well suited for a wide range of applications – from the shooting of promotion videos and documentaries to news gathering shooting and use as a digital cinema sub-camera for scenes requiring a high level of shooting mobility.
Making possible 4K-resolution video with exceptional image quality, the new XC10 employs four technologies newly developed by Canon: a high-sensitivity 1.0-inch CMOS sensor, a 4K video lens offering 10x optical zoom, the high-performance DIGIC DV 5 imaging platform, and the proprietary XF-AVC video format.
The XC10 makes use of the Intra Frame 4K video compression format, which achieves a maximum 305 Mbps (Megabits per second) bit rate; delivering a high data-compression rate without sacrificing image quality to contribute to reduced data volume.
Supporting the capture of high-resolution still images, the Canon XC10 incorporates an approximately 12.0-megapixel 1.0-inch CMOS sensor delivering a maximum ISO speed of 20000, and a mechanical shutter that eliminates rolling shutter skew even when capturing subjects moving at high speed.
