EOS 5DS/EOS 5DS R

EOS 5DS/EOS 5DS R

The Difference is Low-Pass Filter

While sharing the same 50.6 Megapixel sensor and photographic capabilities, the difference between the EOS 5DS and the EOS 5DS R cameras is EOS 5DS R’s low-pass filter cancellation effect.

Standard on every EOS DSLR (with the exception of the EOS 5DS R) the low-pass filter serves to eliminate false colors and moiré patterns that can be recorded by the camera’s sensor.

While the LPF's purpose is to minimize the moiré and false color artifacting inherent in digital imaging, it does reduce resolving power of the sensor. The EOS 5DS R camera's LPF cancellation effect delivers greater sharpness and finer detail, useful in specialized situations, but the possibility of moiré and color artifacting is greater however. Fortunately, there are methods to help eliminate these effects while capturing and during post-processing.

Which One is Right for You?

The 50.6 Megapixel CMOS sensor in the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R open tremendous imaging possibilities for photographers who produce large, highly-detailed prints and those looking to do extensive, creative cropping. These two cameras are very similar, but determining which model is right for you largely depends on your application.

For most users, professional and advanced enthusiasts alike, the EOS 5DS will be the ideal choice, and is suited for a wide range of applications, including studio, landscape, gallery and fine-art photography and more.

The EOS 5DS R is a specialized version that is intended for photographers looking to capture the maximum amount of detail possible, and is best suited for landscape, commercial work or other specialized types of applications. Since the EOS 5DS R offers the LPF cancellation effect, the possibility of moiré and color artifacts is greater than with the EOS 5DS.
