Canon unveils 120-megapixel APS-H CMOS sensor

Craving a camera with more pixels? Well, perhaps Canon’s new 120-million pixel sensor will suit you well.

Craving a camera with more pixels?  Well, perhaps Canon’s new 120-million pixel sensor will suit you well. That’s right, the folks over at Canon have developed a 13,280 x 9,184 pixel, 29.2mm x 20.2mm sensor.

Currently there are no plans yet for the 120-megapixel sensor to make its way into a camera anytime soon.  However the APS-H CMOS sensor does have potential for use in medical imaging as well as cinematography.

In addition to setting the record for highest resolution of any sensor commercially available, the Canon monstrosity can also deliver full HD video—using only 1/60th of its total surface area—as well as continuous shooting at 9.5fps.
