Canon Japan has announced the M15P-CL monochrome 15mp industrial camera. It also appears to have an Nikon F mount. This is a new market for Canon, and follow-up to their foray into the security camera market.

Below is a Google Translated Product Description

Release Information

  • M15P-CL
  • Price (excluding tax): Open Price
  • Release Date: March 19, 2014

CanonM15OPC

Key Features This new product is the exact quality of manufacturing liquid crystal panel and the solar panels are required, such as a digital single-lens reflex camera, the quality of the testing of optical components for proper inspection camera. Traditionally relied on the human eye to detect the inspection process is a high-resolution scan is available, go to the next using the camera market is expected to grow to be more. Canon grasp market trends and existing businesses, such as a new business gained in the application of technology for the industrial market with the camera.

Low-noise, high-resolution CMOS sensor with a EOS series of interchangeable lens cameras to take advantage of accumulated high-sensitivity CMOS sensor The newly developed CMOS sensor with 15 million pixels to be black and white. To achieve low noise and wide dynamic range and a high contrast and enables a check. Because of this inspection under low-contrast environments white / black to gray to indicate high quality of the human eye can not easily identify defects such as small scratches or foreign objects can be detected precisely.

Checking various setup functions that contribute to the ability to shape When recording a captured image brightness gain (sensitivity) of the low noise analog gain (1-16 times) and the digital gain (1-16 times) by up to 256 times, such as the low noise performance can be improved by utilizing various settings function mounted.

Camera Link Interface Images can be transferred and the industrial output of the high-speed camera on the market for the wide dissemination of the standard Camera Link interface specification support.

Industrial cameras (area sensor) Market Trends

Test equipment for image input cameras in the world market is about 18 billion yen in 2013 was estimated to be. Among the more than 10 million pixels for high-resolution industrial camera market is a high-precision smart phones or televisions in the future, such as increased demand growth is expected to be widespread. Canon grasp these market trends, low-noise, high-resolution, high value-added industry for the last product launch to market the camera.

Lol?  :o

Now, Nikon, please make a DSLR in EF mount. That would be lovely, thanks.

Shouldn't the electronic contacts be visible across from the red points?

This is a machine vision camera, and those typically are used with dedicated lenses (fixed focal length and aperture and often a fixed focus distance).  No electrical contacts are needed, which is why you're not seeing them.

The two most common mount types for industrial uses are C-mount (also used by most microscopes) and F-mount.  The C-mount has a 1" diameter, and is too small for an APS-C image circle (too small for m4/3, too), requiring the use of reducing adapters (0.63x, 0.4x, etc.) for sensors that are larger.  The F-mount is the best choice for an industrial camera with a large sensor.

They are basically marketing an upgraded body & the IQ that goes with it to existing users who own all the lenses they will ever need for this application in F format... New users when shopping systems will follow the industry standards ...

Makes perfect sense and gets their foot firmly wedged in that door, Hard.

Looks a lot like the little camera I have on one of my scopes, except it's boring Canon black instead of cool Zeiss blue…   ;)

Canon has done it again - let the cinema-industrial-camera revolution begin. I hope the next version has a headphone jack and focus peaking.

Notice how Canon allows F mount lenses in their bodies but Nikon never does it? Nikon users are snobs while they fling their exclusive bodies while taunting us that they can use their lenses on our cameras? This is a slap in the faces of us all.

LOL.

Of course, this particular Canon camera won't work with EF mount lenses, since it will have the F-mount flange-focal distance.

See. Canon is offering a new mirrorless camera body. :)

Seriously, I'm impressed with Canon's all out effort to open up new markets in the face of the collapse of the point and shoot market. This is the kind of aggressive approach that has led them to dominance in the marketplace.

It's interesting also because it serves as a reminder of how little we all know. While people on the forum endlessly debate dead or dying markets (medium format, anyone?) Canon forges ahead.

The text has a line about EOS lens compatibility, so I'd expect contacts for aperture control, etc.

Sorry, but you're misinterpreting the text (which is poorly translated from Japanese anyway). 

Assuming you're referring to this:

Low-noise, high-resolution CMOS sensor with a EOS series of interchangeable lens cameras to take advantage of accumulated high-sensitivity CMOS sensor

...it's not stating compatibility with EF lenses (which, as stated above, isn't possible with an F-mount due to the shorter flange-focal distance of the EF mount) but rather I believe suggests that Canon is bringing the knowledge and technologies used in the development of the EOS cameras to machine vision applications.

(Side note regarding that red dot, it's in the wrong place relative to the locking pin for the EF mount...but this isn't an EF mount.)

Yay! Just what everyone has wanted. The Canon sensor with a Nikon lens mount! Best of both worlds!  :P

That would be the easiest way for them to finally have decent glass.
