Canon has just stepped up the competition with the announcement of the "world's first" 120-megapixel CMOS sensor.

Canon has just stepped up the competition with the announcement of the "world's first" 120-megapixel CMOS sensor.

The landmark sensor boasts some large-numbered statistics, including:

  • 120 million pixel count
  • Ready for recording full HD 1080p video
  • Maximum burst shooting speed: 9.5 frames per second
  • 7.5x larger than than Canon's highest-resolution commercial CMOS sensor of the same size: 16.1 megapixels

Don't get your hopes up just yet, as there's definitely no timeline as to when we'll see this APS-H-sized CMOS sensor implemented into an digital SLR just yet. I'd expect to wait many years.
