Canon Professional Network have release detailed technical information on the 5DS and 5DS R. “The uncompressed HDMI output found on the 5D Mark III has not been included on either of the cameras as the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R are more prone to moiré and skewing, making them less suitable for high-end video production. A headphone socket, for monitoring audio, is not included. This is due to a lack of space inside the cameras, caused by the move to USB 3.0 connectivity.”
It omits any mention of video. Has it been quietly dropped now Canon have the Cinema EOS range?
Canon Rumors suggests the 5Ds records 1080/30p (translated from the Japanese source at DCI). Looks like we will have to place our hope in the 5D Mark IV and a continued reduction in 1D C prices on eBay to get 4K from Canon anywhere near in line with the pricing of competitors.
Here are the detailed specs…
Above is the new EOS 5Ds, a high megapixel full frame camera from Canon. Specs have been leaked online ahead of the official announcement next week.
