Video: Canon Shows Off 120MP APS-H CMOS Sensor

Canon shows off its 120MXS sensor—first introduced at CES in January—is a 120MP APS-H CMOS sensor that can capture “video” at 9.4fps. Of course, 9.4fps isn’t strictly video, but that hasn’t stopped Canon from showing off what this sensor can do in a side-by-side “video” test up top.

According to the video’s description, the sensor features a square pixel arrangement of 2.2µm x 2.2µm, with 122 million effective pixels, and the high-res readout is made possible by multiple signal output channels:

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
