The new sensor is able to capture stunning detail in the night sky.

Canon has developed a new 35mm full frame CMOS sensor for capturing low light video.

The new sensor enables full HD video capture even in extremely low light situations, such as moonlight and candlelight.

The new sensor features pixels that are 7.5 times bigger in surface area than the pixels found in the Canon EOS 1D X sensor, measuring 19 microns square in size.

The sensor employs new technologies that reduce noise, enabling the sensor to produce clearly visible video images with as little as 0.03 lux of illumination. That's equavalent to the light from a crescent moon.

Canon will be showcasing the new sensor in a prototype camera at Japan's Security Show 2013, which takes place from 5 March to 8 March 2013 in Tokyo.

Bigger pixel sites - so more sensitive. This is a rule we've come to expect.

But its not for high res photo's as its going to have approx 7.5 times less pixels than the EOS-1D X - approx 2.4 Mpixels
