In case anyone cares as of today I’m the proud new owner of a Canon EOS 5Ds R making me one of the first owners in Australia I imagine. Very excited to have such a professional tool in my hands and can’t wait to try it out.
I know for many 50 megapixels is overkill but as far as I’m concerned there in no such thing as too much resolution when capturing the fine details of tree foliage and textures inherent in the sort of landscape work I do. Most of my favourite landscape photographers shoot large format film, i.e. Peter Dombrovskis and Joe Cornish and I have always loved the look of large format even when it’s just a small picture in a book. Hopefully with this camera I can produce something that moves a little closer to this ideal.
