Image Sensor & Lens Patents from Canon

Northlight Images has spotted a couple of interesting image sensor patents from Canon, along with the USPTO patents for various Canon lenses.

Image Sensor Patents

  • On chip A/D conversion [USPTO]
  • Improving pixel based AF in bright light [USPTO]

As we’ve said a lot over the last while, we do expect some big jumps in Canon sensor technology.

Canon Lens Patents

  • Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III [USPTO]
  • Canon EF-S 15-105 f/2.8-5.6 [USPTO]

The EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III continues to make an appearance and we were recently told that the new lens is in the hands of select photographers.
