Canon’s newly announced EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R DSLR cameras uses the 50.6MP full-frame sensor made by Canon.
During an interview at Dpreview with Canon’s Chuck Westfall, he said that the 50.6MP CMOS sensors in the 5DS and 5DS R are developed and produced by Canon.
Mr. Westfall also said the new 50MP sensor offers no dynamic range improvements over the previous 5D Mark III sensor. You can watch the interview and see some quotes below.
50MP Sensor inside the Canon EOS 5Ds Camera is not made by Sony
Question is “Who made the sensor in Canon’s high resolution DSLRs”:
Westfall said the 50.6MP CMOS sensors in the 5DS and 5DS R are developed and produced by Canon. When asked whether they were created in collaboration with Sony as some rumors indicated, Westfall responded by saying: “Absolutely not. The sensors were developed completely in-house, by Canon.”
As mentioned in the official announcement both cameras are identical. The only difference is the effect of the EOS 5DS R’s low pass filter. Like the EOS 5D III the new cameras offer 1080/30p video but do not feature microphone sockets or HDMI out.
50MP Canon EOS 5Ds and 5DS R DSLR cameras also features dual DIGIC 6 processors, a 61-point AF system with 41 cross-type points and a 150,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor with 252 zones. The EOS 5DS and 5DS R are capable of 1080/30p HD video recording and offer dual SD/CF card slots.
