Canon’s recent announcement of it new  50-megapixel 5Ds and 5Ds R cameras excited a lot of comments, and a lot of speculation. The cameras won’t be on the market until June, but at the WPPI trade show yesterday, attendees got to see sample images shot with the new cameras. Four photographers–all members of the Canon Explorers of Light program– shared their experiences shooting with the new models. They were joined  by photographer Peter Hurley, who typically shoots medium-format, and PDN‘s Technology Editor Greg Scoblete for a panel on the new cameras: Photo Forward, the blog of PDN’s sister publication, Rangefinder, has a recap of the panel.

It includes comments by Hurley as well as photographers George Lepp, Hanson Fong, Ken Sklute and photographer/cinematographer Bruce Dorn about the cameras’ resolution, speed and performance when shooting stills and video.
