Canon 5DSR - field experience

  1. Has anyone heard of any moire issues when using the 5DSR in Landscape or Architecture shots?
  2. Not personally, but you might like to read this:
  3. FWIW Ken Rock got one of these 5DS cameras and he's been writing opinion pieces about it.
    I'm quite content with my 6D and see no need personally for any more MP. Horses for courses. Good luck!
  4. Well, I've had moiré once from a D800e, where there was
    a railing at just the right distance, if that counts as
    architecture. It took me nearly a minute to fix it in Adobe
    camera raw, most of which was finding the tool.
    Otherwise, having used a D800e almost since launch
    and a D810 since February, and mostly shooting at
    apertures chosen for sharpness... I've almost never seen
    a problem. I'm sure the same is true of the 5DsR. Don't
    be scared of losing the low pass filter, unless perhaps
    you're a wedding pro and don't have time to check all
    your shots. Nikon's consumer bodies don't have low
    pass filters any more either - that's how much of a
    problem it isn't.
  5. Naturally recurring patterns will typically not be a problem because they do NOT perfectly replicate; however, architecture will occasionally contain such exactly repeating patterns, which will require correction. Fabrics in fashion photography can be problematic.
    DxO Optics Pro automatically corrects for moire with the Nikon e- series and it'll be only a short time before they have the module for the 5Dsr. Certainly, Canon's Digital Photo Professional will have a correction module.
  6. It would be interesting to compare the 5Ds, processed with some sharpening to compensate for the low-pass filter, and the 5Ds R, processed to correct moiré. Which of the two is easier to fix?
  7. I got my 5DSR, I've been trying to create a moire situation, different clothes, TV, computer monitor, Etc. so far, no moire.
