We are now up to 50MP when this Canon 5Ds appears in the shops, quite stunning, video specs are 1080 30p (25p) nothing to set the heather alight. I hope Canon are finally getting back to making good photographic tools, as there are far too many large sensor video cameras around now.
There is no headphone socket in either model so is totally useless for serious video work…mind you it does sport time-lapse (TL) which is still the preferred tool for TL work.
There are two models the 5Ds and the 5Ds R, same old trick as with Nikon, the 5Ds R is better for photographic use.

This is why we are getting a £4760 drop in the price of the Canon 1Dc to £7240, though its still far too dear in my opinion.
