We love that: Canon shows a new 120 megapixel sensor!

Guys! Be prepared. Soon you will have to buy ton of hardware to handle the 120 megapixel photos that the new Canon sensor will take!

Dpreview reports:

Its surface area is halfway between APS-C and full-frame, and it appears to be mostly directed at video applications, capable of recording at approximately 60x the resolution of Full HD. The frame rate of read-out for this ultra high-resolution is 9.5fps, and is made possible by reading multiple pixels simultaneously at high speeds – a process Canon is calling ‘parallel signal processing’. The 120 million pixels – of 2.2 ┬Ám pixel pitch – are contained on a sensor 29.2mm x 20.2mm in size, yielding pixel dimensions of 13280×9184.

We love that new crazy Megapixel race! Finally we can take 100+ Megapixel shots of our beloved cats sitting on a sofa :)
