Canon USA has recently introduced their first multi-purpose camera, the new ME20F-SH, which delivers exceptionally high sensitivity to capture Full HD video with a minimum subject illumination of less than 0.0005 lux1 (at maximum 75 dB gain setting, equivalent to an ISO sensitivity of over 4,000,000). Applications include nighttime surveillance and security, cinematic production, reality television, and nature/wildlife documentaries.
In the past decade, CMOS sensors have emerged as the imaging technology of choice for many applications. Today, they are not only used in almost all cell phones and mobile devices, but are also commonly found in industrial and medical cameras.
CMOS Image sensors with a global shutter are ideal for a variety of applications, including factory automation, unmanned aerial vehicles, and automobile driver-assistance systems. For these applications, CMOS imaging sensors with a global shutter are used to avoid image degradation caused by rolling shutter distortion.
Part 2 of the series describing advancements in CMOS sensors and processing focuses on a new Super 35 mm CMOS image sensor that is specifically developed to support origination of High Dynamic Range (HDR) motion imagery.
