Watch: Canon Boasts Its 120MP Camera Sensor Next To Full HD In Comparison Video
Canon has released a video boasting its powerful 120MP CMOS sensor.
The video compares the footage in full HD to the new Canon’s sensor which has 60 times higher resolution. Canon explained that using parallel signal processing—to read signals at high speeds—has made it possible to film in ultra-high resolution.
Having 28 digital signal output channels allow the pixel progressive to have a reading of 9.4fps.
Called ‘120MXS’, the ‘APS-H’ sensor is available in RGB and monochrome, with double the sensitivity in resolution.
A trial video, of the inner workings of a typical mechanical watch, is able to showcase the products exquisite ability to capture an immense level of detail, when compared to even a 1080p camera.
The level of detail able to be captured by the product is tantamount to extraordinary, even when digitally zoomed into the frame.
Another showcase by Canon to exhibit the sensors capabilities, a rugby match was filmed and compared to a standard full HD footage, captured using the Canon ‘1D Mark IV’.
Indeed, this new product development intrinsically epitomizes Canon’s ability to forge new paths in this industry and trailblazer its way.
Unfortunately, release dates for this 120MP sensor is yet unknown, but if you envision yourself owning one of these sensors—start stocking up on data storage and hard drives—RAW photos shot by this sensor take up to 210MB of drive space each.
