Canon is now allegedly linked to an upcoming 63MP sensor
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.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
