Canon develops the world's highest CMOS sensor of about 120 million pixels
Today announced that Canon has developed a CMOS sensor of about 120 million pixels, which is the world's highest pixel count.
It is a very ridiculous sensor that it becomes possible to perform continuous shooting of tremendously high resolution photographs of 13,280 pixels × 9184 pixels at high speed.
Details are as below.
Succeeded in developing the world's highest CMOS sensor with about 120 million pixels with APS-H size
According to the release released today by Canon,APS-H sizeIt is said that it succeeded in developing CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) sensor of about 120 million pixels (13,280 × 9184 pixels), which has the world's highest pixel count.
The sensor developed this time is about 7.5 times the number of pixels compared to about 16.1 million pixels, which is the highest pixel number of APS - H size CMOS sensor which the company has commercialized so far, the resolution is increased to 2.4 times It will be improved. Although not commercialized, Canon has developed APS - H size CMOS sensor of 50 million pixels in 2007.
This is about 120 million pixels CMOS sensor developed this time.
By the way, in the CMOS sensor, parallel processing is performed to read many pixels at high speed. However, with respect to signal delay and timing misalignment which is a problem due to an increase in the number of signals to be processed, Canon can control the timing of the reading circuit By devising the method, we succeeded in reading the sensor signal at high speed.
This makes it possible to output at speeds of up to about 9.5 frames per second, realizing continuous shooting of ultrahigh definition images, as well as realizing full HD It corresponds also to output by animation. By using the CMOS sensor developed this time, even if trimming cutting out only a part of the screen or electronic zooming that electronically enlarges a part of the image, etc., it gets a higher definition and clear image than ever before It can be done.
