120MP EOS cameras

The Canon Expo 2016 Shanghai was a show-and-tell of Canon's achievements, and that includes future technology developed by the Japanese imaging company. Here, we look at various advancements in their imaging, printing, and mixed reality businesses.

This is the sample photography setup to test its capabilities.

And this is the resulting output. It's magnificent.

On display was a concept model camera with a built-in 120-megapixel high-resolution sensor. If we take the current crop of flagship cameras and their sensors into consideration, 120-megapixel sensors would greatly eclipse the quality of images that current imaging technology is capable of. The Sony A7R II has a 42-megapixel sensor, the Canon 1D X Mark II has 20.2-megapixel sensor, and the Nikon D5 has a 20-megapixel sensor. Canon claimed that the images captured at this resolution would still retain its quality even after cropping the original data, and textures found on very small subjects can still be clearly seen on B0-sized print.
