Canon, in recent days, the point of the crane was such a point that even scientists could not stay silent. Because the newly produced giant sensors contribute greatly to the scientific world.
Canon claims to be working on a frameless camera, but the optical giant has a bigger goal. Canon, working on a CMOS sensor bigger than two times the size of an EOS camera, has admired us with an announcement he made when we were going to remember. The company announced that it had taken a picture of a previously identified meteorite with a 7.8-inch sensor with high sensitivity in its description.
A typical full-frame sensor has dimensions of approximately 36×24 millimeters and 1.4×0.95 inches. Canon’s largest sensor is 20 centimeters and 7.8 inches in size. According to Canon’s claims, the sensors will not be able to develop further in the near future. Silicone coatings for light-sensitive sensors are available in a maximum capacity of only 12 inches and 7.8 inches. Larger production equipment is needed to produce larger sensors.
For larger sensors, the benefits are quite high. As the sensor size increases, more light can be collected. A very large camera is needed for a 7.8-inch sensor to be placed in the body. This sensor, which was started to be used for academic astrophotography, was recently tested at the Kiso Observatory by Tokyo University. The celestial objects, which can not be displayed due to insufficient light collection on other sensors, are expected to be displayed with the new camera sensor. According to scientists, the new Canon sensor will contribute significantly to astronomy and positively impact the development of life on our planet.
Canon says that the sensor he has built can only shoot 60 shots bright even in the light of a full moon. In addition to scientific research from astronomy to night-time wildlife, Canon says the sensor can also be used in safety applications. The company’s largest CMOS sensor, when it first emerged in 2015, had a resolution of 250 megapixels.
