New Canon EOS 5DS R Tested by George Lepp
George had the good fortune of testing the new Canon EOS 5DS R 50MP camera at WPPI in Las Vegas Nevada. He and 3 of his Canon Explorers went to The Valley of Fire and photographed the scenery, as well as a model. Take a look at the new NEWS page to see examples from this incredible high-resolution camera.
A new 4K video of the Smith Rock State Park eagle nest is available below. From egg to fledgling is documented in the new 11 minute high definition video!
The 11 minute 4K video above was captured using Canon's EOS 5D MK IV and EOS-1D X MK II cameras. Lenses to bring in close the nest from 200+ feet were the EF100-400mm Mk II, EF500mm MK II, and the EF800mm. Using tele-extenders and considering the 4K crop factor of the camera the maximum focal length used was 3889mm. 120 hours were spent at the nest site and many hours editing the 4K footage to pull frame grabs that were sent out over social media. A gallery of those frame grabs will soon be available on this site.
