This morning Canon has released information about its latest camera sensor that is capable of recording images up to 120 megapixels.
If you thought your 12 megapixel camera created larger enough files to put a strain on your home storage just imagine what size files a 120 megapixels camera will produce, if Canon brings their new technology to market.
The new Canon 120-megapixel, APS-H sized CMOS sensor is approximately 7.5 times larger than the one used in Canon’s EOS 1D Mark IV, yet is capable of performance that you would expect of cameras currently used.
The new CMOS is capable of shooting 13280×9184 still images at up to 9.5FPS and could record 1080p with just 1/60th of its usable pixels.
Canon has just being showing its new technology off and as yet hasn’t released any dates as to when this new CMOS would be available if ever for manufacturing.
