Canon CMOS sensors push the boundaries of what’s possible in industrial vision.

For industrial, machine vision, medical, and scientific applications, CMOS sensors from Canon offer camera OEMs and end users expanded possibilities with the latest technology. Whether its exceptionally high pixel counts in a compact design, or enormous pixel sizes for high sensitivity, Canon’s pixel-level innovations deliver entirely unique performance. Leverage renowned Canon quality for ultra-high resolution, ultra-high sensitivity, or low power consumption in your vision application and see what’s possible with Canon CMOS sensors.

The Imaging Solutions Group (ISG) within Canon USA Inc. incorporates current and future Canon technologies into new products and solutions, including innovative CMOS sensors that overcome major technical barriers in the vision industry.


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.

Canon’s new 3U3MRXSAAC is a 2.8 MP CMOS sensor equipped with an HDR drive function that achieves a wide 120 dB range at low noise levels. The sensor’s wide range results in a greater ability to extract usable information, even in situations where there is a substantial difference between the lightest and darkest areas of an image.

Canon’s 35MMFHDXSB sensors are designed with deeper wells, resulting in an almost 45% increase in quantum efficiency (QE) at 800 nm verses the standard 19 µm pixel size sensor. Featuring 19µm pixel sizes available in monochrome (35MMFHDXSBM) or with a specialized RGB-NIR color filter array (35MMFHDXSBI), these CMOS sensors allow for expanded possibilities in a wide range of applications.

Canon’s 2U250MRXSAA CMOS sensor offers 250 MP resolution capable of capturing detail 125 times greater than in full HD resolution at a fast frame rate of 5 FPS. This APS-H format sensor leverages a square pixel arrangement of 1.5 µm x 1.5 µm pixels with progressive reading of 1.5 µm pixels across 16 digital output channels to handle the enormous amount of image data created by roughly 250 million effective pixels.

The 120MXS 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 are made possible by parallel signal processing, which reads signals at a high speed from multiple pixels.

The 35MMFHDXSCA 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 35 mm CMOS sensor provides the largest 16:9 imaging area possible when used with Canon EF lenses.

The 3U5MGXS is a 5 Megapixel Global Shutter CMOS Sensor equipped with a global shutter that exposes all of the sensors’ pixels at the same time. This global shutter image sensor employs a new pixel design introducing new drive readout and light guiding technologies significantly reducing noise, and contributing to a wide dynamic range with a power consumption of 500 mW.
