Canon, a pioneer in imaging solutions, announced it’s recently advanced complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensing device, with a high-resolution capacity in its range of 120 megapixels.
According to the company announcement, apart from the 16.1 million pixel resolution of the CMOS commercial sensor, the advanced APS-H features 120 million pixel resolution which is approximately 7.5 times larger than the commercial sensor with 2.4 times improved resolution capacity .
The greater speed output in the high pixel range is obtained by means of parallel processing in the CMOS devices and an elevation in the signal counts, through parallel processing will lead to changes in time and delay in signals. The greater speed in the signal output of the sensor is achieved by remodeling the method used to maintain the circuit timing.
The modified CMOS device delivers an extended read-out speed of nearly 9.5 frames each second, promoting the constant imaging of high precision resolution images, says the company statement.
The unique CMOS embodies an entire HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) video read-out in the range of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels capacity from nearly one-sixtieth-proportion of its entire surface area.
The digitally magnified or cropped Images shot with the 120-megapixel CMOS image sensing device retain the standard clarity and exposition.
Company stated that the sensor also allows the image validation across a broad image surface permitting entire HD video coverage of a particular area of the whole frame.
