It is possible to shoot even about 1 / 100th brightness of a professional camera, Canon develops the world's largest and ultra-sensitive CMOS sensor
Generally, it is hard to shoot a camera in a dark place, it will not be able to focus properly, but it is about one hundredth of the professional digital single lens reflex camera, it can shoot even half the light of the moonlight about half the world, the world's largest Canon developed an ultra-sensitive CMOS sensor.
Details are as below.
Succeeded in developing world's largest and ultra-sensitive CMOS sensor | Canon: News release
According to Canon's press release, it is said that the company has developed a world's largest and ultra-sensitive CMOS sensor with a chip size of 202 x 205 mm.
This is the largest CMOS sensor that can be manufactured from a 12 inch (about 300 mm) diameter wafer, which is the largest among Canon's productsEOS - 1 Ds Mark III"and"EOS 5D Mark II"It's about 35 times the size of the 35 mm full size, about 21.1 million pixel sensor installed in the sensor.
The left is the world's largest and ultra-sensitive CMOS sensor developed this time by Canon, right is a 35 mm full size CMOS sensor.
The body of the professional digital single lens reflex camera "EOS - 1 Ds Mark III".As of 13:16 on August 31, the lowest price at .com, 638,000 yenIt is a ridiculous model.
Conventionally, when the sensor is enlarged, there was a problem that it took a long time from receiving the data signal to sending it, and it was difficult to speed up the output, but Canon has a problem by devising a circuit design We succeeded in developing a huge CMOS sensor for motion pictures by solving the problem.
This makes it possible to shoot even about 1/100 the amount of light required by a 35mm full size CMOS sensor and shoots about 60 frames per second with a brightness of only 0.3 lux, so you can shoot movies of stars and night animals, It is expected to be applied to surveillance cameras at night.
By the way, when the digital camera adopting this sensor is commercialized, how big is the main body ...?
