Canon announced the creation of an APS-H format CMOS sensor (29.2 x 20.2 mm) with a resolution of 250 megapixels (19580×12600), thereby setting a record for resolution among matrices smaller than full-frame 35 mm. Such a sensor can fit in an average commercial DSLR camera. According to the manufacturer, despite the huge resolution, the sensor boasts a low amount of noise, and on the captured image it will be possible to distinguish the inscription on an airplane that is 18 km away. The read speed of the signal reaches 1.25 billion pixels per second, which allows you to do 5 frames per second. The videos that will be shot using the new 250-megapixel CMOS sensor are approximately 125 more FullHD (1980×1080) and 30 more 4K (3840×2160). This will allow the processing to significantly increase the image and get high quality images. First of all, the novelty is designed for use in specialized devices for monitoring and preventing crimes, instruments for ultra-precise measurements and other industrial equipment.
