Sony 12.5 MP APS-C CMOS sensor, 10 fps
The sensor war between Sony and Canon continues, on the day Canon announce their new 10 megapixel CMOS powered EOS 40D Sony Corporation reveal its latest CMOS sensor, the twelve-point-five megapixel APS-C size IMX021. Sony is positioning this new chip with new technologies which are designed to deliver low noise and yet maintain high continuous shooting rates (10.39 frames per second with 12-bit output to be precise). Who knows where we will see this sensor next but a fairly safe bet must be the next Sony Digital SLR.
