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.
