50.6 Megapixel  
Canon CMOS Sensor
The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R 
cameras feature a stunning new 
full-frame CMOS sensor. At 50.6 
megapixels, it’s the highest 
resolution sensor in the history of EOS cameras. It 
captures 8712 x 5813 effective pixels, delivering 
images with an unprecedented level of realism 
perfect for any number of high-end applications.
Picture Style: Fine Detail
To process the captured 50.6 megapixel image, 
the cameras utilize new Fine Detail mode in 
Picture Style. Fine Detail emphasizes fine 
edges and patterns or textures, by setting the 
camera’s sharpness sub-settings, fineness and 
threshold, to their minimum.
61-point AF High Density  
Reticular AF
For fast, precise AF with sophisticated 
tracking performance, the cameras 
feature the 61-point High Density Reticular AF 
system with up to 41 cross-type AF points. It 
offers an admirable combination of accuracy and 
speed with phenomenal tracking.
Image Processors
With Dual 
6 Image Processors 
on board, the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R 
cameras are capable of speedy operation, even 
while capturing 50.6 megapixel images. These 
 Processors enable fast movie 
compression, precise EOS iTR face detection 
with Live View and movie shooting, plus up to 
5.0 fps of continuous shooting.
Single AF point
Spot AF point
To achieve and maintain focus on moving 
subjects the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras 
have an RGB+IR AE sensor (with approximately 
150,000 dots) that uses color information to 
monitor subject motion. EOS iTR AF can use both 
face detection and color to track a subject. After 
the autofocus system achieves focus, the 
RGB+IR AE sensor helps maintain focus by using 
color and shape information to track the subject 
as it moves throughout the frame.
5.0 fps Continuous Shooting
While shooting at full resolution, the 
EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras can 
shoot up to 5.0 frames per second for 
both One-Shot AF and AI Servo AF. They have a 
two-motor shooting system which, combined 
with the speed of the Dual 
6 processors, 
ensure this speedy operation.
Anti-flicker Function
The Anti-flicker function helps enable the 
camera to deliver accurate results under rapid 
on-off pulsing of certain artificial lights. The 
function detects the frequency and phase of the 
flicker and captures images near peak 
brightness for optimal illumination. 
Built-in Interval Timer
The cameras offer time-lapse fixed-point 
shooting and long exposures without the need 
for a remote control. The built-in Interval Timer 
can be directed to shoot at specified intervals 
saving as individual images or stitching 
images together as an HD movie. 
USB 3.0
A SuperSpeed USB 3.0 terminal has been built 
into the cameras for high-speed transfer of 
images and videos. Each camera comes 
bundled with a cable protector and a dedicated 
Micro B interface cable.
1.3x & 1.6x Crop Function
The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras’ 
crop function enables each camera to 
shoot at 1.3x or 1.6x, the chosen focal 
length. Effectively extending the lens’ range, the 
crop function also enhances focus tracking as 
the AF points extend further towards the edges 
of the image frame.
Custom Quick Control
The Custom Quick Control feature enables the 
photographer to quickly and easily access the 
settings critical for the task at hand. The user 
can specify features to display, as well as their 
location and size on the screen.
Time Lapse Movie
The new Time Lapse movie feature 
takes still photos at set intervals and 
joins them to create a silent movie.  
It’s perfect for showing the growth of a plant, changes 
in scenery, the flow of people and much more.

New Shutter Release System
The Mirror Vibration Control system 
is designed to help combat camera 
shake. The camera’s mirror is not 
controlled by springs but driven by a small motor 
and cams. This helps suppress the impact of the 
camera’s mirror, significantly reducing vibrations 
and their effects on the image.

Intelligent Viewfinder II
The Intelligent Viewfinder II makes it 
easy to confirm and change camera 
settings and shooting modes all 
without looking away from the 
viewfinder. Numerous settings can be 
superimposed over the image and views are easily 
customizable according to the user’s preference.
EOS 5DS R delivers slightly sharper edges and more textured details.
LPF Cancellation Effect  
(EOS 5DS R only)
The EOS 5DS R camera has a low-pass filter 
(LPF)* cancellation effect. With the LPF 
effect cancelled, the EOS 5DS R takes full 
advantage of the original resolving 
power of the 50.6 megapixel sensor. 
More detail is captured and retained 
in the original image, perfect where 
pixel-level detail is the priority.
*The possibility of moiré and color artifacts is greater due to the LPF cancellation function.
