Last week Canon pulled the wraps off a new CMOS sensor boasting 120MP resolution. This week Canon has announced what it claims to be the world's largest CMOS sensor. The massive sensor is so big only one can be made form a 300mm silicon wafer.

The sensor measures 202 x 205mm and is 40 times larger than the largest commercial CMOS sensor available for Canon today. The giant size of the sensor means it can gather more light allowing it to be used for photos in low light conditions.

Canon also tweaked the circuit design to allow the sensor to be able to record video at 60 frames per second in low light. The camera can do its 60fps feat with only 0.3-lux of illumination. That is about half the light you see on a moonlight night.
