Canon’s Country Manager, Mr. Sarshar Ali, expressed,

We are taking the art of photography to the next level with the launch of our outstanding cameras. These cameras have been superbly manufactured to give matchless performance and are capable of capturing even the minutest details of any scenario with utter perfection.

He further said that

Our cameras are a product of ultimate expertise and they have been aptly equipped to capture lively moments and enable the users to live them all over again, every time they see the pictures.

For camera shakes due to the mirror bounce, the mirror vibration control system in the camera model is redesigned. Apart from the normal model, Canon added an Arbitrary Release Time Lag Setting in the Mirror Lock Mode. This is a new feature included in the latest model. This setting gives the user new intervals of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, one and two seconds. By choosing one of these, the user gives the camera a certain amount of time for the vibration to dissipate before the image is clicked or the shutter is released. Fine detail is a new Picture Style included, which has three settings: Strength, Fineness and Threshold. These settings increase the sharpness of movies or images taken from the camera.

State of the art EOS 5DS R has an advanced AE system and a new auto white balance setting, which includes Ambience Priority and White Priority. This helps when shooting under tungsten light.

This model feature Intelligent Viewfinder II, which provides 100 percent field of view. It is also able to “display cropped shooting frames and superimpose a customizable selection of camera settings and data such as dual-mode electronic level display and grid, as well as exposure, white balance, metering, drive, image quality and AF modes.”

The camera has several other features such as dual card slots for CF and SD memory cards, creative time lapse functions for movie recording and a shutter durability rating up to 150,000 cycles.

If you are concerned about price, then this is a high-end full-frame DSLR for professionals and costs $3,600 in US. That’s around 3,80,000/- in Pakistan.
