I doubt Canon's leading edge video sensor will be restricted to 1080p.
You doubt it? Even in the face of the clear fact that this particular sensor is in fact a "Full HD" (1920x1080) video sensor?
This sensor, as they state, is being developed to optimize low light video... as stated Canon "is looking to such future applications for the new sensor as astronomical and natural observation, support for medical research, and use in surveillance and security equipment."
Whatever new technologies they develop for reduced noise readout electronics could potentially be used in future higher resolution video and still sensors, but that's not what this sensor is about.
1080p only ... I missed that.
Low light use is good too, I hope to press on with other video specific improvements
