|Canon’s Full Frame CMOS Image Sensor provides the ultimate quality for
professional images. The larger size provides more freedom of lens choice and
more creative opportunities.
Canon Full-Frame CMOS Sensor
- Expanded output for professional image quality, larger print size and takes full advantage of the capabilities of Canon lenses for all serious photographers.
- Professional Results
Full-frame sensors are significantly larger than the sensors in most digital SLRs*, and deliver professional results for commercial reproduction in magazines and books, and superb detail in large poster-size prints.
- Excellent Image Quality
Industry-leading 14 bit color depth delivers 16,384 tone levels per pixel to create stunningly detailed, large scale prints.
- Full Lens Utilization
The Canon Full Frame CMOS sensor is the same size as a traditional piece of 35mm film — the size that Canon interchangeable lens systems have been based around for over 50 years. Conversion factors are a thing of the past and a wide angle lens is just that, wide angle…edge to edge with complete coverage.
- The Canon Full-Frame CMOS Sensor is designed and engineered by Canon exclusively for Canon digital cameras.
- *Canon's full-frame CMOS sensors are 24x36mm in size, the same size as a 35mm film negative or transparency. Most of today's digital SLRs use a much smaller sensor, typically around 15x22mm
