For several decades Canon, has been developing and manufacturing advanced sensors with state-of-the-art technologies for exclusive use in Canon products. The sensors are a driving force behind many successful products, from consumer products up to high-end business and industrial solutions.
The 5 Megapixel Global Shutter CMOS Sensor is equipped with a global shutter that exposes all of the sensors’ pixels at the same time. This solid-state imaging sensor has dimensions of 2/3 inches, has a square pixel arrangement, and 5.33 million effective pixels (2592 x 2056). The sensor's global electronic shutter function contols the charge accumulation time and an all pixel progressive reading of 120 fps.
The 19 μm FHD CMOS Sensor features high-sensitivity and low-noise imaging performance for the capture of full HD video in exceptionally low light environments. The larger pixel size of 19 μm x 19 μm alongside proprietary device design technologies helps to achieve higher sensitivity and an increased well depth. This 35mm CMOS sensor provides the largest 16:9 imaging area possible when used with Canon EF lenses.
The 120 Megapixel CMOS Sensor has a pixel count equivalent to the approximate number of photoreceptor cells in the human eye. Recording capabilities at approximately 60x the full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 is made possible by parallel signal processing, which reads signals at a high speed from multiple pixels. This sensor has a size of 29.22 mm x 20.20 mm, a square pixel arrangement of 2.2 μm x 2.2 μm with 122 million effective pixels, and 28 digital signal output channels.
