"Current EOS 5D Mark III shooters, who may be considering moving to the new high-resolution EOS 5DS (or the EOS 5DS R, which removes the effect of low-pass filtration), may wonder if anything changed on these new cameras because the new models look practically identical to the proven Mark III camera. Rest assured, there are some new rewards waiting to greet 5D Mark III owners who step up to the new cameras. We can’t touch on every single one, but we’ll try to give an overview of many of the new details.Topics Covered
Obviously, the biggest is the move to a 50.6 million pixel CMOS image sensor – more than doubling the pixel count from the Mark III model. You’ve no doubt seen discussion of this, so we’ll go a bit more beneath the surface. Everything we discuss here applies to both the EOS 5DS and 5DS R models."
The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R both feature a built-in interval timer to allow you to shoot timelapse sequences without needing a separate intervalometer. If you plan to use the Interval timer, first make sure you are not in Live View mode. In Live View the intervalometer options will be greyed out so you can’t select them. Equally, if you set the interval timer to ‘On’ and then go into Live View, the timer will be cancelled. To avoid this, you should set up your camera position with Live View first and then stop Live View, before going to the menu and setting the interval timer options.
When shooting with the EOS 5DS and 5DS R cameras interval timer function, you will still be able to manually capture an image during the sequence simply by pressing the shutter button. If you try to capture an image manually, but the camera does not actually take the picture, check when the next interval image is due to be taken. The camera will prepare itself for the next interval 5 seconds before it is due to be captured. During this time, you will be unable to shoot any other images or access the camera menu.
During an interval timer shooting session, if you have set the number of images to 0 so the camera captures continuously until you decide to stop, you may be wondering how exactly to stop the interval shooting. If you have an interval frequency of greater than 5 seconds between images you may be able to access the menu and select ‘disable’ to end the interval shooting. However, if you are shooting images every 3 seconds, for example, you should simply turn the camera off to end the interval. This will not corrupt any images or risk losing the last image provided you wait until all image writing has been completed before opening the card slot door.
Using the interval timer built into the menu of the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R makes it simple to capture timelapse sequences without needing any additional accessories. When using the timelapse function you will find that the shooting frequency is quicker than once every five seconds, so there is no image review between shots, even if image review is turned on in the menu. This can make it tricky to judge your exposure and ensure the light levels are not changing enough that you need to adjust the exposure. If you do need to keep an eye on the exposure, look instead at the exposure scale on the top plate of the camera – if you make a note of where it was when you started the timelapse, you will be able to see if the exposure has gone up or done and therefore decide if it needs adjusting between frames.
