Before we get into our more in-depth comparison of the Canon 5DS R and Canon 5DS, let’s take a quick glance at the primary characteristics of both cameras. If you truly want to make use of full 50 megapixels, you’ll need excellent lenses as well as excellent photography skills. If I worked in a studio all day and never left, I may consider using a medium format camera, but for usage in the field, you don’t want to bring one with you. When professionals charge more than $10,000 for a day’s work, they need something concrete to demonstrate to the creative directors who employ them that they are worth $10,000 a day. Medium format cameras fit that bill well. With a frame rate of more than 10 frames per second, the Canon 1D X is a professional camera built to survive repeated drops from heights and exposure to harsh conditions.
In addition to bolstering Zenfolio’s continuing attempts to revitalize its business model, the purchase also positions the company as a compelling alternative for photographers wishing to create websites and operate a successful business. The DJI Ronin 4D is a 4-axis gimbal with an integrated full-frame cinema camera that shoots in 4K resolution at 30 frames per second. Despite some glitches, Jordan Drake of DPReview TV believes it is one of the most inventive video devices to come out in recent years. I’m astounded at how they manage to find the time to snap photographs.
I’ve had my 5DS for a few months now, and I’ve been using it mostly for portraits and the past two weddings…. Ditto, Sony’s terrible service and lack of USB 3.0 for us tethered photographers who want to work at a quicker speed, along with my 20-year Canon loyalty, left me with just one option: the 5Ds and A7sII for video. Where I reside, Canon service provides me with priority assistance, but Sony uses third-party service facilities and is unable to repair their own cameras. Furthermore, they couldn’t give a damn about repeat clients; they just strive to sell as much as they possibly can without providing any service.
Another key consideration is whether or not picture stabilization is available. Because none of these bodies are equipped with sensor-based image stabilization, you will need to purchase lenses that provide optical stabilization. Currently, there are 77 lenses available for the Canon EF mount that include image stabilization.
Both cameras are equipped with a PC Sync terminal, which allows them to be used to operate professional strobe lights, which is very useful for studio photographers. Aside from the body and the sensor, cameras may and do vary in a variety of other ways as well. When it comes to optical viewfinders, the 5DS and the 5DS R are quite similar in that they each contain one. Using the latter method, you may capture a sharp picture for framing even in brilliantly illuminated surroundings. There is no difference between the viewfinders of the two cameras in terms of field of vision (100 percent), magnification, or other characteristics (0.71x).

The Lumix S 35mm F1.8 L-mount lens from Panasonic has been in our possession for a few days, and we’ve put together a tiny sample gallery to show you a little bit of what the new lens is capable of. DJI has unveiled its much-anticipated Mavic 3 drone just in time for the holiday shopping season.
If you want to avoid going through the process of downsizing, the Mark IV may be a better choice. It’s a difficult choice since it seems that either option will work for you. However, I believe that for what you are doing, you do not need the additional MP of the 5DS and that the Mark IV is a better option for you.
Returning to sensor resolution, it should be noted that the 5DS R does not have an anti-alias filter fitted, allowing it to capture all of the information that the sensor is capable of capturing. Kenneth, I’m on the same side of the fence as you are. Landscape and architectural photography are my primary needs, so the 5DS R would be a no-brainer for me, EXCEPT that I sometimes shoot video projects and weddings on the side. The MARK IV is necessary in those two areas because of the much improved video features…
The 1D X merely lies more about its high ISO settings, and enables you to raise them ridiculously high, resulting in images that are far crunchier than those produced by the 5DS. This may be important if you’re shooting in complete darkness and don’t have access to a computer to increase the ISO on the 5DS in Photoshop, but there is no better DSLR for producing high-quality photographs. Aside from professional photographers, who need even a little quality edge over the competition to make the sale and eat that week, few individuals want even more pixels on their cameras. The 5DS has even more pixels, but most people don’t need them unless they are professional photographers. Because of the noise reduction, extremely fine, very delicate information is often significantly less visible at ISO 100. The most effective approach to demonstrate this is to photograph some good wood furniture and search for the most minute variances in wood grain patterns.
Because I do not take video, this is not a concern for me while using the Canon. The fact that the camera may overheat after 20+ minutes of filming in 4K is not mentioned anywhere. Because the screen becomes around 3-4 stops darker in live view, it is practically hard to concentrate.
