Canon News has uncovered a patent that shows an 83mp full-frame image sensor from Canon. If you scale up the new 32.5mp APS-C sensor to full-frame from the EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II, 83mp is what you’ll get.

Japan Patent: 2019-149607

  • 20.75 MP sensor of 5575 x 3725 pixels in size
  • 83.06MP sensor of 11150 x 7450 pixels in size

A large number of pixels of 4 columns × 4 rows (8 columns × 8 rows of focus detection pixels) shown in FIG . 2 are arranged on the surface to enable acquisition of a captured image (focus detection signal). In the first embodiment, the period P is 4 [mu] m, the number of pixels N in the lateral 5575 columns × vertical 3725 lines of pixels = about 20.75 million pixels, the column period P of the focus detection pixels AF is 2 [mu] m, the focus detection pixel number N AF lateral The description will be made assuming that the imaging device has 11150 columns × vertical 7450 rows = approximately 83.06 million pixels.

We’re extremely confident that we’ll be seeing an EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R replacement in the form of a new EOS R system camera in the first half of 2020.
