Canon have developed a 120 megapixel sensor
Hi, Canon have developed a 120 megapixel sensor...
Some medium format cameras today have sensors with over 40 megapixels, but that's beginning to sound small.
Canon has just successfully developed the world's first APS-H sized CMOS image sensor with 120 megapixels, which is a record for that size. Compared with Canon's highest-resolution commercial CMOS sensor of the same size, comprising approximately 16.1 million pixels, the newly developed sensor features a pixel count that, at approximately 120 million pixels, is nearly 7.5 times larger and offers a 2.4-fold improvement in resolution. We're talking a staggering 13,280 x 9,184 pixels worth of resolution here.
The new sensor also includes a Full HD video output capability, and it also enables image confirmation across a wide image area, with Full HD video viewing of a select portion of the overall frame. Canon hasn't mentioned when this sensor will be used in actual cameras, but it can't be too long now.
