Switching to the Canon 5Ds has been a revelation for my landscape photography, especially when exploring the rugged beauty of Bornholm. As someone who transitioned from the Nikon D300 to the Canon system with the Canon 5D Mark II, my leap to the 5Ds was driven by an insatiable quest for higher resolution and superior detail in my images. The 5Ds, with its staggering 50.6 megapixels, has allowed me to capture the intricate textures of Bornholm’s landscapes in unparalleled detail.

The camera’s compatibility with a broad array of filters further elevates my ability to control light and contrast directly in-camera, a necessity for the nuanced landscapes I aim to capture.
