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