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.
