i apreciate your sensor tech knowladge and would like to read your opinion if it is a new sensor or a recikled on from 600d?
Can they add a sensor layer for the focusing sistem to a eksisting design or do thej need to design a ne on?
sorry for my bad English.
It's a tweaked/recycled version of Canon’s current 18mp sensor.
The hybrid AF has no bearing on the sensor.
For hybrid AF, certain pixels just need to be read out by the AF processor as well (in addition to the image processor).
But they don’t need to be special pixels or anything.
As for the higher ISO setting:
This is achieved with tweaks to the read-out logic and also by the Digic 5 processor.
