Field Testing the Canon 5DS R in Botswana, Africa


Abraham Joffe of Untitled Film Works released this 3-minute video showing photographer Denis Glennon field testing the new Canon 5DS R by capturing wild animals in Botswana, Africa (he was likely using the first 5DS R to hit African soil).

“Oh my God. I can hardly believe what I’m seeing,” Glennon says. “I have never seen such detail, I have never seen such sharpness, and I’m talking about images that have come straight from camera. I kid you not: I could see the veins in the leopard’s eyes.”


“My mind is blown away by the size of prints that would emerge from this camera,” he continues. “Up to now, I have used most of my images for my website and for the promotion of my tours.”

“But this excites me to start printing, printing, printing like I’ve never printed before.”


The 50-megapixel 5DS and 5DS R recently received the highest DxOMark sensor scores ever obtained by a Canon camera.

P.S. This video was a personal collaboration between Joffe and Glenon rather than an advert made for Canon, but Joffe did recently shoot the Tales by Light series for National Geographic and Canon.
