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.

250 MP Resolution CMOS Sensor: 2U250MRXS 250 MP Resolution CMOS Sensor: 2U250MRXS

Canon’s 2U250MRXS 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.

120 Megapixel CMOS Sensor: 120MXS 120 Megapixel CMOS Sensor: 120MXS

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.

19 μm FHD CMOS Sensor: 35MMFHDXSCA 19 μm FHD CMOS Sensor: 35MMFHDXSCA

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.

5 Megapixel Global Shutter CMOS Sensor: 3U5MGXS 5 Megapixel Global Shutter CMOS Sensor: 3U5MGXS

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.
