Canon EOS 5Ds body with 120-megapixel APS-H sensor


While other camera manufacturers have been introducing cameras with 100-megapixel sensors, Canon has been demonstrating and shooting with its own 'Canon EOS DSLR' that features a 120-megapixel APS-H sensor at Photokina 2016.

With tethered shooting, images come through to a computer at a large 211+ MB per raw file and it currently takes the camera 19 seconds to transfer the image. The sensor is inside a Canon EOS 5Ds body, and uses the same processing system, hence why the time taken to transfer the images is 19 seconds.

Canon currently has no plans to release the camera, but it’s possible that cameras in the future could have a 120-megapixel sensor.
