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!
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 µm 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 :)
