Canon 5DS R

$3,899.00 $3,599.00

This camera is not for the faint of heart. With a 50.6 megapixel full-frame sensor and a self-canceling optical low pass filter (not found on the 5DS), the 5DS R’s unbelievable image resolution and detail is unmatched in the DSLR segment. There are definite drawbacks to choosing this camera over something more versatile such as the Canon 5D Mark III — most notably an unimpressive maximum ISO of 12,800 and a lack of wifi or GPS connectivity — but this camera isn’t meant to be a jack of all trades. Instead, it is simply the best professional studio camera available today, and it’s the studio camera used at Resource Unbox.
