Canon’s new camera sensor could revolutionize dynamic range

Canon has designed a brand new stacked CMOS sensor, which not only has a massive dynamic range of 148dB but also has newly developed “exposure by area” technology – enabling the camera to expose different areas independently from one another.

Now, before we all get too excited, this sensor has been designed for Canon’s range of security cameras – but we can only assume that it is a matter of time before aspects of this technology trickle down to consumer cameras.
