Canon Readies More Advanced Camera Sensors

Canon Readies More Advanced Camera Sensors

According to Canon Rumors, the company is getting ready to release three new camera bodies with variously stacked sensors.

It makes sense that future high-level bodies will also use such sensors since the EOS R3 was the first Canon camera to do so. The advantages of a stacked sensor are numerous, including:

  • Increased readout speeds for reduced rolling shutter when producing video or photographing fast action
  • Higher resolutions without reduced video performance
  • Faster burst rates
  • Improved dynamic range
  • The possibility of eliminating the physical shutter entirely, as Nikon has done with the Z8 and Z9

The EOS R1 is likely to have a stacked sensor when it becomes the company’s next flagship. The other two cameras that will initially get the option, in my opinion, will be an EOS R5 Mark II and a camera from the Cinema line.

Uncertainty surrounds whether Canon intends to do away with the physical shutter, but the Nikon Z8 and Z9 appear to favor the change. E

ither way, it’s nice to see the company moving forward with improved sensor technology. It is hoped that the technology will soon be used in more cameras.
