To ensure 5fps continuous shooting possible, both cameras sport dual DIGIC 6 image processors, while its mirror vibration control system reduces the chances of the capture image being blurred by the vibration caused the movement of the camera’s mirror.
Built to complement the EOS 5D mk3, the RM14,999 EOS 5DS R and RM13,999 EOS 5DS are specially designed for advanced to amateur users, and particularly focused on architecture, landscape, product, and commercial photography due to its high resolution performance that allows for more flexibility in producing finely cropped images.
