A photography blog claims to have discovered a specs sheet for a new Canon sensor with a whopping 63MP resolution. This new module is intended for a full-frame (i.e. 35mm) camera, and has pixels of 37 micrometers in size. Should this leak prove real, this new sensor could compete well with new 60MP counterparts from Sony.

The blog PhotoRumors has posted a rumor indicates Canon's development of a new, ultra-powerful sensor. It is detailed in a spec sheet allegedly leaked to Weibo, which states that this piece of CMOS has a pixel density of 9740x6504 - or, in other words, a total of 63.34 megapixels (MP).

This module, which may have the model number 35MM63MXSCD, has a screen size of 35 millimeters, and is thus clearly intended for a full-frame camera. Should this leak prove true, it is pretty clear that such a product would take Canon leaps and bounds away from even its current flagship EOS 5DS series, not to mention the newest EOS R mirrorless unit.

The new sensor would also be comparable to the anticipated Sony IMX455, which Nikon has allegedly chosen for its own next generation of high-end full-frame products. It may also even measure up to the IMX555, which the manufacturer is reserving for its own next line of super-premium cameras.
