Taste of 120 Megapixels

Canon is hitting hard on the resolution frontier, by demonstrating it's extreme megapixel monster prototype at it's own Expo.

Canon prototype captures only at ISO 100

Sensor size is APS-H as in Canon 1D.

Prototype was shown in Canon Expo and is producing 210 MB raw files - a bit of problem to load, however in order to evaluate at usable 1:1 view 4K display is minimum you would need. This and other consideration is going to delay this camera at least for a year or two.

Workstations performance, memory storages are not yet there to take a normal loads of images from a shootout, not to mention limited selection of lenses that can come close to resolving this resolution.

And how about the aperture settings that will not harm resolution due to difraciton - at such megapixel level it should be no less than f4.5 - f5. So we can expect huge leap of technologies surounding photography.

PS: actually Canon anounced the 120 Mpx sensor back in 2010, along time ago when this certainly sounded like a sci-fi stuff
