Makes me marvel at the technical progress but also sad as again the train seems always to roll towards video and never to stills with Canon these days

I think this sort of technology will also find its way to stills.  If they can just somehow improve the resolution...

  • How you relate to the issue, is the issue.

Even if the sensor does not make it, perhaps the noise-free electronics will

Before someone asks when it will appear in a DSLR, here is their current plan.  its a video sensor BTW.
 
It is likely why Canon has recently announced a move into the video surveillance field, but it will be pricey.  Military and law enforcement use are the most likely first adopters, people who will pay $100K + a copy.
In addition to astronomical and natural observation, Canon is looking into applying this CMOS sensor to medical research purposes as well as surveillance and crime-prevention equipment.
