Canon Demonstrates 250 Megapixel Camera Sensor!

Canon has announced the development of a new ultra high resolution camera sensor that is capable of capturing 250 megapixels which equates out to 19,580 x 12,600 pixels!

The new APS-H CMOS sensor has a readout speed of 1.25 billion pixels per second, making it the fastest on the planet which means it can focus on a flying plane or something else super fast, without an issue.

Canon said that when they installed the sensor in a camera, it was capable of reading the lettering on the side of an airplane from over 18km away, which is a remarkable feat in itself!

The Video footage captured by the camera outfitted with the approximately 250-megapixel CMOS sensor achieved a level of resolution that was approximately 125 times that of Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) video and approximately 30 times that of 4K (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) video according to Canon.

Don’t get your hopes up that the new sensor will make its way into a camera at your local Best Buy store as this new sensor is aimed at the surveillance market and would be used mostly by governments and large corporations.
