Canon world’s largest CMOS sensor, enables shooting in low-light environments

Canon Inc announced today that developed the world’s largest CMOS image sensor,with measures 202 x 205 mm,  it is about 40 times larger than the size of Canon’s largest commercial CMOS sensor.

Using innovative circuit design, the new size of Canon’s CMOS sensor, enables greater light-gathering capability and enables capturing images in one one-hundredth the amount of light required by a professional-model digital SLR camera, approximately one-half the brightness of a moonlit night. At 202 x 205 mm, the newly developed CMOS sensor is among the largest chips that can be produced from a 12-inch (300 mm) wafer. The high-sensitivity sensor also allows shooting of 60 frame-per-second video with a mere 0.3 lux of illumination,  such as video recording of stars in the night sky and nocturnal animal behavior.
