CPN has posted an interview with Tsunemasa Ohara, the Senior General Manager of Camera Research and Development at Canon Inc. He’s the man behind the development of this high resolution DSLR.
CPN: What do you see as the potential future for Canon high-resolution cameras? Where might the technology be in five years time?
TO: “There is a demand for high-megapixel (cameras) and high-resolution and, of course, we will continue on this quest in the future and to try to satisfy this demand. As you know, in August 2010, we announced a 120-million pixel APS-H CMOS sensor… so we have shown that we have the technology to produce even higher resolution sensors, but we must also focus on high image quality, too. So DIGIC processing, and all the other algorithms that contribute to high image quality, we need to work on too. It is the overall package that makes Canon EOS digital cameras so successful.”
