A Canon anunciou a ME20F-SH, uma camera com sensor 35mm full-frame com a habilidade de atingir um ISO máximo de 4,000,000!

 

A nova câmara de vídeo 1080p está direccionada para diferentes mercados, incluindo vigilância nocturna, cinema, shows televisivos, e documentários de vida selvagem, apenas para mencionar uns quantos. Vem com um encaixe electrónico EF e contém funções como o Canon LOG e Wide DR para o máximo de alcance dinâmico. Há já algum tempo - desde 2013 - que estavam desenvolvendo um sensor do género.  

 

Veja um vídeo demonstrativo da nova tecnologia utilizada do sensor:

 

 

 

 "While capturing video in extreme low-light conditions often requires the use of infrared illumination (a technique that only yields video in black and white), the ME20F-SH camera achieves impressive high-sensitivity performance enabling the capture of color Full HD video with reduced noise in low-light conditions without the need for infrared illumination.

This multi-purpose camera allows users to discern subjects under even some of the dimmest lighting conditions, such as environments lit by artificial illumination or under a moonless night sky. Furthermore, similar to Canon's Cinema EOS System of professional digital cinematography cameras, the ME20F-SH camera includes Canon Log and Wide DR, which make possible a wide dynamic range, delivering high-image-quality video results across a range of illumination environments, from low- to brightly lit conditions."
