Canon Japan has just announced their crazy new 250-megapixel APS-H CMOS sensor. Canon’s APS-H sized sensors sit in between its full-frame and APS-C sensors, measuring about 29.4 x 18.9mm. If you’re curious exactly what resolution 250-megapixels is, that’s a massive 19,568 x 12,588 pixels.
Announced today, the Canon LI8020 sensor is actually being released later this month, but now for the bad news… It’s not going inside a DSLR or mirrorless camera. It’s destined for surveillance, industrial inspection, microscope and archival use. It does shoot 8K video, though.
