Canon 5DS Mark II Replacement
There are quite some rumors about the upcoming Canon EOS 5DS/DS R Mark II, but we don’t get over our heels with it when it comes to resolution.
The new models isn’t expected to be announced any time sooner than the second half of 2018, most likely at Photokina 2018.
What we know so far is that the successor is going to have a new 60.1MP full frame CMOS sensor and that it’s going to be able to shoot 4K video. It’s very likely that the Mark II version is going to be blend into one DSLR camera.
The working prototype is tested as we speak and the new “5DS” series isn’t going to have a low pass filter. It’s going to feature a new type of low megapixel mode and the 4 K video is going to have only basic features.
The body isn’t going to change body and it’s expected to be almost identical to the EOS 5D Mark IV.
We’re going to use the focus peaking, but it’s going to appear first on another DSLR.
Many features of the current model aren’t going to disappear: Wi-Fi, DPAF, touchscreen, and GPS.
Some also talk about an impressive megapixel replacement, but we sit on a fence with this one. This isn’t always a good news since we’ve seen other brands using APS-H sensors in test bodies and notice the effect on the pixel count.
