We may not see many better deals than this one in Amazon Prime Day 2020, or even over Black Friday. This Canon EOS 5DS is still one of the best specced DSLR cameras around thanks to its 50 megapixel full-frame sensor, and its professional build quality. It may be five years old now, but this is a workhorse that is still worth considering.... and particularly at this new low price of just $1,299! That's an incredible deal for a camera that cost $3,699 when it was first introduced.

This is a one robust camera too, with weather-resistant magnesium-alloy build, a 61-point AF system with 41 cross-type points, 5fps burst shooting, and decent-sized fixed 3.2in LCD.

Being a full frame DSLR, we get a large bright optical viewfinder here, which displays 100% of the scene before us. While it is possible to accurately focus manually using this, there's also the option of switching to Live View and using the camera's LCD screen, on which the magnification can be upped to 6x or 16x to check detail to an even greater extent. 

This is a great deal - but you may also consider the Canon EOS 5DS R - which is also available for a similar discount, and in the B&H deal is reduced to $1,499. This alternative option shares all the core specs of the EOS 5DR - but does is designed to cancel out the effect of the anti-aliasing filter on the sensor – allowing you to eke out even more detail from those 50 million pixels.  

Both cameras are currently out of stock - but B&H assure us that they have more on the way, so get your order in before this incredible offer ends!
