We’re told that the next generation of Canon CMOS image sensors will begin with an all-new 24mp APS-C sensor inside Canon’s next DSLR and EOS M cameras.
What sorts of improvements we’re going to see in the next generation of sensors wasn’t divulged to us, but we’re hoping to see some major advancements from Canon in this area.
Canon is putting resources into updated dual pixel AF, quad pixel AF and stacked image sensors if we go by the patents we’ve seen over the last year or two. APS-C video shooters might also appreciate line skipping being introduced to get rid of the crop. It’d also be nice to get 4K DPAF in these new cameras.
The next ILC cameras from Canon are an EOS 80D replacement as well as an update to the EOS M5. Neither of these cameras can afford to recycle the current 24mp sensor by just adding direct read 4K.
More to come…
