Eberhard Schuy: Studio Sharpness from Canon EOS 5Ds

CPN Europe posted a new article about shooting Canon EOS 5Ds in studio. Commercial photographer and Canon Explorer Eberhard Schuy was one of the first to use the EOS 5DS DSLR camera. In an exclusive CPN interview and film we find out his thoughts on how Canon’s high-resolution DSLR cuts it in the studio. Eberhard Schuy thinks the EOS 5Ds can replace the medium format cameras and save a lot of money.

From Eberhard Schuy:


“So far I’ve only used medium format cameras and lenses on loan, depending on the job,” he explains, “and only when this quality was absolutely necessary. That was always a question: how to calculate [the cost of] a job. Now, with the EOS 5DS, the camera can be integrated into my studio and I think it will fully replace medium format photography. It is absolutely comparable.”

He continues: “If we buy a medium format system, we have to buy new lenses, new bodies and so on. Now it’s possible to work with the EF lenses that we already own and to work as we do in our daily job.”

“This camera has no disadvantages to medium format cameras,” he states. “The most important thing is what quality the files are. When I need really large files it’s important to have something in reserve. With over 50 Megapixels we have all sorts of possibilities. With this sensor we can produce pictures for every kind of use, including big prints for advertising. So, in the future we will work with just one system in my studio, and that’s the 5D system. Depending on the nature of the job we can chose the EOS 5D Mark III or the EOS 5DS. And because we can use the same lenses, this not only saves time but also a lot of money!”
