Canon 5DS R full-res, full-frame First Shots: Still officially beta, but WOW (Update: RAWs available)

    (Editor's Note: RAW files from this 50MP camera, as you can imagine, are very large. We've posted staight-out-of-camera JPEGs for the moment; RAW file downloads will be available tomorrow provided our ISP connection doesn't melt down in the process now. :-)  Update, 05/06: RAW files for our First Shots are now available.  We had our first, very early sample of the Canon 5DS R 50MP monster a few weeks back, but the firmware was at an earlier stage of development, so we could only share crops with readers.

When the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched earlier this year there was no talk of the ISOCELL technology previously used by the Galaxy S5's and Note 4's in-house image sensors, so it was believed the 16MP 1/2.6 CMOS chip in the S6 was provided by Sony. However, rumors have emerged that in some units Samsung sensors are used instead of the Sony variant, and a company spokesperson has confirmed that different sensors are used. Read more

Canon PowerShot SX60 HS real-world sample gallery posted

Canon's flagship superzoom is its PowerShot SX60 HS, which sports a 21-1365mm equivalent lens - not quite Coolpix P900 territory but still very impressive.
