Canon Developing 8K Camera and Reference Display

-

Canon announced that it is developing an 8K EOS camera and professional 8K reference display that will support the production of 8K video content, along with a still-image single-lens reflex camera equipped with a CMOS sensor featuring approximately 120 million effective pixels.

The company said that the Cinema EOS System 8K camera will be equipped with a Canon Super 35 mm-equivalent CMOS sensor that makes possible high-resolution 8,192 x 4,320 pixel (approximately 35.39 million effective pixels) imaging performance, even at a frame rate of up-to-60 frames per second with 13 stops of dynamic range and a wide color gamut. With an EF mount compatible with most of Canon’s EF lens lineup, the camera will support diverse shooting styles.

Incorporating Canon image-processing technology, the ultra-high-resolution 8K reference display aims to achieve high brightness, high contrast (high dynamic range) and a wide color gamut. With a pixel density exceeding 300 pixels per inch, a level approaching the limit of human visibility, the display will be able to reproduce subtle changes in light.

Featuring a resolution of approximately 120 effective megapixels, the SLR camera will incorporate a Canon-developed high-pixel-density CMOS sensor, which will be compatible with most of the company’s EF lens lineup.

The SLR camera is being designed to capture high-resolution images that can recreate the three-dimensional texture, feel and presence of subjects, making them appear as if they are really before one’s eyes. The resolution will be more than sufficient for large-format printing and extensive cropping while maintaining image quality.
