Canon Introduces the New 120MP EOS Camera

120MP camera sensor! Yes, you heard it right. With the alleged technical name Canon 120MXS, the company exhibits a 120MP sensor that features 13280 X 9184 pixels of ultra-high-resolution. While practically it seems to be impossible, the Canon made it true. The company has recently released a video that showcases the 120MP CMOS sensor wherein you can check the unbelievable resolution the sensor is offering.

The Canon 120MXS is a 120MP APS-H sensor that can deliver 60 times higher resolution video than the regular full HD sensor. Canon claims that this possible with the parallel signal processing that can read signals at higher speeds. Until now, we were quite happy with the 4K videos, now it is like the 4K video days are gone and is heading towards the advanced 13K images. The new sensor can shoot videos at 9.4fps. According to Engadget, each frame packs in 9 megabytes, thus resulting in a file of around 90MB/s.

Canon Says, “Ultra-high-resolution is made possible by parallel signal processing, which reads signals at high speed from multiple pixels,” “All pixel progressive reading of 9.4fps is made possible by 28 digital signal output channels. It is available in RGB or with twice the sensitivity in monochrome.”

The video rendered compares the 120MP sensor to the 2MP which is shooting the watch gear. The trial video forecasts the internal working of the mechanical watch that captures the images with an immense level of detail than a 1080p camera. The impressive high pixel count allows you to shoot amazing photos retaining the amount of detail even while digitally zoomed.


Another shot displays the sensor's capabilities with a rugby match. It was compared with Canon 1D Mark IV that exhibits full HD footage. This 120MP sensor was in news in 2015 and later was shown off at Expo in May 2016. Until now, there is no official timeline of when the 120MXS CMOS sensor will be available in the camera. Meanwhile, Sony is about to launch a 150MP medium format sensor in 2019. You can even check out top 5 upcoming canon camera for 2018.
