5ds or 5dsr - my findings
« on: February 10, 2016, 12:35:25 pm »

I tried to add this to the previous 5ds or 5dsr thread but it's locked.

A couple of weeks ago I borrowed both bodies from my local camera shop to test side by side before making a decision. I was set up to do some copy work, a nice controlled environment where I could take my time and see what the difference in sharpness was for myself.

Shot with a Zeiss ZE Macro, the additional clarity of the 5dsr is quite clear in the attached copies. It gives the impression of a little extra bite of acutance. I resisted the temptation to sharpen too much so they do look like they could both stomach a tad more - they both had equal amounts.

I also tried to make some moire with both cameras but was unsuccessful with the conditions/subjects I often shoot.

I went for the 5dsr without hesitation, if you're going to have to deal with 50-70Mb RAWs and 144Mb TIFs you might as well have the best possible image from the onset. Full fat for me please waiter.

I previously spent years shooting transparency so I didn't waste time deliberating the over discussed limitations of Canon sensor dynamic range; any camera that shoots RAW has more dynamic range than I actually need to produce commercial images.


Hope this maybe helps someone else who's on the fence.

Bear in mind that a part (difficult to quantify but real) of the extra sharpness perceived when the AA filter is suppressed, is produced by a high frequency interference caused by the absence of proper AA filtering. In other words, a part of the extra sharpness is a form of noise, not real detail. This will not only happen when periodic patterns close to the Nyquist limit appear on the scene, but also everytime fine detail is captured, like in a landscape (tree leaves, rock or sand textures, grass,...).

The image on the right looks sharper:



I just added noise to the image on the left.

Hi Guillermo,

Thank you for your reply. I've read many of your threads and replies with great interest for quite a while and I have the upmost respect for your technical knowledge.

I have to confess that the science behind digital image making (like women) is a mystery to me. I take photos and people are kind enough to give me money for my efforts, it's the way it's been for the last 25 years in my life. I leave the development of hardware to those clever chaps predominantly in Japan who never cease to amaze me with their ability to deliver things I never knew I needed... as well as their comical marketing strategies that seem to believe I'm of no relevance.

Looking carefully at your example I'm seeing an image on the right that looks like the image on the left but with less detail because of the noise. That seems quite different from what I'm seeing in my own examples with and without the cancelling filter. I'm not sure how the addition of noise can add detail to an image, maybe perceived sharpness, but not detail.

On reflection maybe I should of used the term "additional detail" as opposed to sharper, is that what you were meaning? - my apologies for the ambiguity if that is so, I was simply trying to illustrate the difference in a controlled but practical situation.

Ignoring the clever science if I may for a second, my migration through digital imaging started with an Imacon 3020 then moved to a 10D, 1Ds2, 1Ds3, 5D3 with 1DX now complimented by the 5DsR.... the 5DsR is the first camera to re-excite my enthusiasm for stills since my 1Ds2. Stuff looks great with a 5DsR, and that's all that matters to me and the people who pay me at the end of the day.


Kindest regards,

Carl

Yes, the comparative advantages of AA filter or not is fairly well documented. 

Your last two points are trade offs.  That is, the deficiency of the Canon sensor, which extends beyond just the DR disadvantage to the Sony sensor, was accepted in trade for more pixels.  In some situations that is a good trade and other not.  Both the pixel advantage and DR and Noise disadvantages are not large, but reasonable.  However, it really depends on what type of images you make, under what conditions, and what output size and media are targeted as to whether the trade is good (all else being equal).

Given the list of Canon cameras you rolled off though, I more inclined to believe your choice was based on the inability to overcome inertia than any actual comparison between available alternatives.  Don't get me wrong, we all have that same consideration when selecting our NEXT camera body as opposed to our FIRST camera body.   But, it would be less disingenuous to have just said, I wanted the highest resolution Canon camera I could buy because it meets my needs.

An investment in lenses is a serious consideration when contemplating a switch. O for the days of M42 standard mount, used by many brands of camera.... ;)       (not really, screw mounts were a pain to change if you were in a real hurry - plus I doubt that screw mounts could work for electrical connections).

I agree.  And not just lenses, but accessories and the invested time climbing the learning curve.  I know I should be using Lightroom, but have some much time invested in Photoshop that I just haven't been willing to switch.  I continued to shoot Nikon even while advising people to buy Canon for a long stretch before Nikon figured it out.  My point was that we should all be clear and factual about our decisions and motivations, not only to others whom we may be influencing, but to ourselves.

A short while ago someone on this forum asked for thoughts and advice regarding the choice between a 5ds and a 5dsr; in starting this thread I’d simply intended to illustrate my own personal experience of these two almost identical Canon cameras as it might help someone else since the previous thread had been locked.

I’m quite bemused and disappointed by you deciding to morph it into another “lets slag off Canon” soap box… as well as rudely questioning my own ability to make considered decisions about my choice of camera equipment.

To use your terminology, let me be "clear and factual" about my "decisions and motivations”…. as you later suggested.

I’ve attached another image for you to look at. It is an untouched (apart from the numberplate) “snap” I took with my 1DX last year on returning to my car after photographing a friend throwing an awesome racing motorcycle into some corners on a road that passes my home as it makes it’s way across the moors of Derbyshire, UK. The sky, the heather, the reflections in the car all looked too pretty to be missed.

I haven’t uploaded this image to demonstrate the dynamic range, sharpness or indeed any aspect of the 1DX whatsoever. No, I’ve uploaded it because I’d recently bought the car for £39K from my local BMW garage with the excess profit I made with my “DR disadvantaged" Canon camera choices and my “inability to overcome inertia”. My account advised my to spend some cash so I bought a coupé, cute isn’t it? I could of bought a PhaseOne back but that would have been an unnecessary millstone and nothing like as much fun as whooshing about the country lanes in a 4 Series.

I’m lucky (or is it astute?) enough to make my entire living from taking photographs with equipment I’ve carefully chosen; I don’t care if it’s a box brownie, a Hasselblad or a pin-hole camera if it gets the job done to the required standard, puts food on my table and gives me the life I want.

To go back to your obsession, todays increasing dynamic range is a godsend to weekend warriors, but it doesn’t make up for skill and craft when a jobs to be done properly. I have no interest in comparing spec sheets with Sony, Nikon or otherwise, why should I? - it’s boring and life is too short… take photographs instead, chill out and enjoy life my friend.

Is that "less disingenuous" enough for you?

Great car!  But why is the steering wheel on the wrong side. 😃😃. From one guy who chose the new Canon 5 series to another.  I like my bimmers a bit older...e39 style.

Hey Craig, cheers.. it's almost as much fun as the new camera! - I had the steering wheel moved over so the wife can drive it.

What do you think to your “DR disadvantaged" investment? - you've been a user longer than me ;)

I'm quite happy with it, and I have the "s".  I don't find extended DR to be of much value for my work anyway. It's amazing what proper lighting can do, and after decades of shooting reversal film I'm pretty much used to limited DR.   Plus I lacked the inertia to change systems after being with Canon since the 1Ds.

I was not "slagging off" Canon.  I was merely pointing out that the rationalization for your choice was "it was the highest resolution Canon camera I could buy."  There is nothing wrong with that.  I did the same thing when I bought the Nikon D810.  It was the highest resolution Nikon available.  The fact that it was the highest resolution DSLR at that time and had the best performing sensor system at the time were bonuses.

The sensor subsystem is not the only characteristic to consider when purchasing a camera.  But it is one characteristic that should be considered.  Rationalizing that it doesn't matter is foolish and does a great disservice to those looking for information.  We can discuss under what conditions various performance characteristics are advantage and how prevalent one might encounter them.    Just like a car, horsepower, lateral stability and braking don't matter, except when they do!

Yes and no.

If the AA filter on the Canon 5DS were ideal, i.e. perfect in real world language, the image captured with the 5DS R would never have any more detail than the one from the 5DS since a perfect AA filter would never eliminate or attenuate any valid information. In addition to that, the perfect AA filter would get rid of all of the interference caused by fine detail present in the scene. In such a case the image from the 5DS and perfect AA filter would always be better than the one from the 5DS R (same detail, none of the interference).

But real AA filters are not perfect, so in the real world the 5DS AA filter will not eliminate all of the interference (that is why the 5DS CAN still produce aliasing/moire), and will probably cut some of the fine detail or at least will attenuate it making the valid information look less sharp. This will require extra sharpening that will also enhance the presence of noise in the 5DS.

An exercise to find out how close to a perfect AA filter the 5DS is, is applying an unsharp mask to try to reach the same level of sharpness of the 5DS R, and then judge how much detail is present. The better the AA filter is, the more indistinguisable the images will be:





I used a coin to randomize which is A and which is B, the 5DS R or the 5DS. Which one has more detail? is the difference big?.

This is an interesting thread, and I thank the contributors.

I started the 5ds v 5dsr thread, and I locked it because it degenerated into a Nikon v Canon spat, which bored me. There were very few responses to my question (though a lot more to what was supposed to be my concluding remarks, having bought the camera), and as it turned out, money made the choice pretty easy: £200 might be worth paying for the small difference (and it is small, in reality, I think) but £500 certainly wasn't. IMHO, of course.

I suspect both cameras out-resolve my abilities.

No disrespect to any test...but the ones I have seen done well, vs ones that leave me scratching my head....

Any time you do a test for sharpness, I highly recommend using a very high contrast yet complex items that are machined, as subject matter.
Natural items, or shapes drawn or painted make poor subjects and really makes it hard to see any true difference.


Further more, the lack of AA filter give the image a more 3D look in my observations. At one time I used a Canon 1Ds vs a Kodak SLRc camera with lecia R glass, and the Kodak without a filter was much sharper. I know that the 1Ds may have had this or that, but the Kodak file was much comparable to my PhaseOne file.  This may have little value to those that are looking for something more properly and scientifically done, but this was many years ago, and it was when I became strongly against a AA filter forced on the sensor. Much of those talks are here on Lula. 

But the 5DSR, says the filter is there but not activated or something...something funny in their verbage. It looks like they kept it, but somehow it is canceled out at some point??

There seems to be technical reasons for that, probably to keep the total thickness and refraction index of the sensor layering constant among the different cameras in the system so that the specifically designed lenses perform at their best.

Regarding the so called by many "3D effect" of larger formats, I have never read a convinving explanation of it beyond subjective adjectives. Do you think increased sharpness is the objective reason that achieves the "3D look"?.

Regarding the artificial subjects with high contrast edges, for the same reason they are the ones that more clearly show increased sharpness, they are also more prone to display aliasing artifacts (hard staircase edges, moire colour patterns in near-Nyquist repetitive structures,...).

I'm not sure where this is leading in my world. The simple test I did originally was to see if I could observe a difference under conditions I could replicate doing a task I'm sometimes asked to do. The fact is I could see a difference, more detail coming from the R camera.

I wasn't going to travel down this road but I have a bit of spare time so I'll indulge myself, also as you have gone to some trouble to try and explain things to me. I just tried to replicate your suggestion. As I mentioned in my first post, I didn't over-do the sharpening in my original image.

So, I added extra unsharp mask to the 5ds image to bring as close to the 5dsr as I can... but I'm still not convinced they are equal in detail. However, I then added the same unsharp mask to the 5dsr and it took another step away from the 5ds with regard to visible detail (see attached)..... adding even more to the 5ds makes the file fall apart.

I'm a practical person who earns his crust taking photographs, not a scientist! My logic was as follows...

- Two cameras are almost identical.
- Camera A reproduces more detail than Camera B.
- I can't reproduce moire under conditions and with subjects I normally shoot with either.
- Both cameras are within my budget.
- Buy camera A.

Result - happiness!

I'm sorry to disappoint those who have more time and inclination to dig deeper, peep at their pixels and procrastinate their way to an early grave. I'm loving the results from my 5dsr, personally.

As an "early adopter" I chose the 5Ds over the 5DsR to avoid the risk of moire: hard to recover from in my line of work. :)

I did take a look at the link to Tim Parkin's test but as soon as I read "More recently, Canon provided me with both the 5DS and the 5DSr and a bunch of lenses 16-35 f/4 IS, 24-70 f/2.8, 24 f/2.8 with which I was to do some in-depth testing." I personally realised it wasn't relevant to me.

Testing high resolution sensors should be done with the very best lenses, otherwise it's more a test of the lens. Using zoom lenses and a medium quality wide angle cannot bring anything conclusive to the table in my opinion.

Don't get me wrong, I own a 16-35 f/4 and a 24-70 f/2.8II and they are good lenses for their purpose, flexibility and saving time.

It's only my opinion though. I think you made a great choice of camera, I think I did too. We're happy bunnies!  :)
