Canon's New 120 MP APS-H Sensor
Canon anounced a new one hundred and twenty mega pixel APS-H sensor. Yep, you read that right. It’s 120 Mega Pixels. That is one badass sensor. The big question on my mind is where the hell are they going to put all of the RAW information?
Here is a little info from the Press Release.
TOKYO, August 24, 2010—Canon Inc. announced today that it has successfully developed an APS-H-size*1 CMOS image sensor that delivers an image resolution of approximately 120 megapixels (13,280 x 9,184 pixels), the world’s highest level*2 of resolution for its size.
Compared with Canon’s highest-resolution commercial CMOS sensor of the same size, comprising approximately 16.1 million pixels, the newly developed sensor features a pixel count that, at approximately 120 million pixels, is nearly 7.5 times larger and offers a 2.4-fold improvement in resolution.*3
