Canon Will Sell You Their 120mp APS-H Image Sensor

Are you building your own camera and need more megapixels? You can buy Canon’s 120mp APS-H sensor. The sensor is available in color and monochrome. Hat tip to Northlight Images.

Ultra-High Resolution CMOS Sensor

The 120MXS is an ultra-high resolution CMOS sensor with 13280 x 9184 effective pixels (approx. 60x the resolution of Full HD). It has a size equivalent to APS-H (29.22mm x 20.20mm), and a square pixel arrangement of 2.2µm x 2.2µm with 122 million effective pixels. Ultra-high-resolution is made possible by parallel signal processing, which reads signals at high speed from multiple pixels. All pixel progressive reading of 9.4 fps is made possible by 28 digital signal output channels. It is available in RGB or with twice the sensitivity, in monochrome.
