Kazutada Kobayashi, President and CEO, Canon India said, “Canon’s vision has always been to give the industry newer experiences of creating high quality imaging, both in photography and videography. Understanding the rapidly changing and ever increasing requirements of the imaging industry and professionals, Canon keeps launching more evolved and technologically progressed products.”

The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R feature a 50.6-megapixel 35mm and full-frame CMOS sensor processor. The EOS 5DS R enables cancellation of its Optical Low Pass Filter (LPF) effect. On the other hand, the EOS 5DS is equipped with the functional LPF.

Touted as the world’s highest resolution DSLR cameras, the company has introduced new cam-motor driven mirror mechanism in EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R that minimises mirror vibrations that occur and cause image shake.

The 150,000-dot RGB+IR Metering and automatic exposure system are other key features of these cameras. With latest dual DIGIC 6 image processors, users can shoot for a maximum continuous shooting speed of 5.0fps (frames per second), at a full resolution of 50.6MP.

The XC10 features Genuine Canon 10x wide-angle zoom lens with 2x digital tele-converter, optical image stabilization and DIGIC DV5 signal processor.

The EOS 5DS, EOS 5DS R and XC 10 are priced at Rs. 252,995, Rs. 265,995 and Rs. 170,000 respectively. The new cameras will be available at all Canon Image Squares.
