Control Panel on the Canon 5DS?

The Canon EOS 5DS indeed features a top-level display that makes it possible to quickly view and verify key camera settings. Such control panels are typically seen only on cameras that are aimed at professionals or photography enthusiasts, such as the 5DS. The secondary display on top of the camera body is naturally smaller than the rear LCD, which remains the main screen for adjusting menu settings and reviewing images.
