This is the future of something…60x the resolution of HD ! This 120MP sensor is being shown by Canon as a future sensor for video implementation, the details are as follows…size 29.2mm x 20.2mm, pixel count 13,280 x 9,184, frame rate 9.5fps.

Its all about how many pixels you can cram onto a sensor, this certainly slams 8K in the face but to what end, how much processing power would you need to make sense of a resolution 60 times HD. I can see this used in spy satellites but a 120MP camera…the CX60.

The Phase One has an 80MP back…only 40MP less than the 120MP…mind blowing !


As if by magic we get a video produced by a photographer Joe Capra in Rio De Janiero on a Phase One IQ180 digital back at 10K resolution. If this is what you can do zooming to 100% with 10K think of the possibilities cutting in on 120MP…!

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
