THUNDER BAY – TECHNOLOGY – Canon has unveiled some new digital cameras. The EOS 5DS camera features Canon’s newest full-frame CMOS sensor. At 50.6 Megapixels, it’s the highest resolution sensor in the history of EOS. It captures 8712 x 5813 effective pixels, delivering images with an unprecedented level of realism perfect for large-scale commercial printing, fine art, significant crops and any number of other high-end applications. Thanks to this amazing sensor, engineered to work in concert with dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors, the EOS 5DS is a remarkable, high-resolution camera with impressive performance.

The EOS 5DS camera has an amazing iSA Intelligent Scene Analysis system that employs an independent RGB+IR light sensor with approximately 150,000-pixel resolution. This sensor enables Canon’s Intelligent Tracking and Recognition system (iTR AF) that detects and tracks subjects, automatically switching the AF point to optimize tracking. With new tracking algorithms tailored to recognize faces and colors, this system serves as a brilliant foundation to the EOS 5DS’s AF system, a 61-point High Density Reticular AF system with up to 41 cross-type AF points.

With all the features and capabilities of the EOS 5DS, the EOS 5DS R camera offers the potential for even greater sharpness and fine detail for specialized situations. It features the same Canon designed and manufactured 50.6 Megapixel sensor with the low-pass filter* (LPF) effect cancelled to provide even more fine edge sharpness and detail for critical subjects such as detailed landscapes, and other situations where getting the sharpest subject detail is a priority.

Product Highlights:

  • 6 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor
  • 61-Point high density reticular AF
  • EOS Scene Detection system
  • Built-in intervalometer and bulb timer
  • Advanced mirror control and selectable shutter release lag-time for suppressing camera vibration
  • Full HD video with time-lapse function
  • Anti-flicker function for exposure and color consistency during continuous shooting
  • 3x and 1.6x crop shooting
  • High-speed continuous shooting up to 5.0 fps
  • Intelligent Viewfinder II with approximately 100% viewfinder coverage
  • 2-inch ClearView II LCD monitor, 170° viewing angle

Canon has also announced two new models of the popular EOS Rebel DSLR cameras. The 6Ti and 6Ts models are the first EOS Rebel cameras to include built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity. With an updated light-metering system and advanced AF system, these new DSLRs include a 24.2 MP CMOS (APS-C) sensor and high performance DIGIC 6 image processor, among many other advanced features.

The EOS Rebel T6s is the first Rebel to include advanced options like a top LCD display panel and a Quick Control dial (with locking mechanism), even a built-in level display, all in an elegant, compact and portable package. For stills, the EOS Rebel T6s can shoot incredibly quickly in Live View mode with Servo Burst Shooting, plus it has a number of advanced HD movie shooting features that include HDR video recording and Movie Digital Zoom.

Product highlights:

  • 2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor
  • ISO 100-12800 (expandable to H: 25600)
  • High performance DIGIC 6 image processor provides outstanding image quality and speed
  • Built-in Wi-Fi® and built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) for simple connection to smart devices or the Canon Connect Station CS100
  • EOS Full HD Movie mode captures video in MP4 format
  • Hybrid CMOS AF III allows for high levels of speed and accuracy when capturing moving subjects during movie shooting or when capturing photos in Live View
  • Vari-angle Touch Screen 3.0-inch ClearView II LCD monitor (approximately 1,040,000 dots)
  • High-speed continuous shooting up to 5.0 fps
  • New EOS scene analysis system
  • 19-point all cross-type AF system allows superb autofocus performance
  • Creative filters are available as presets for photos and movies and can be displayed in real time during Live View shooting
