Canon EOS-R1 Rumored to Have a 21MP Sensor

Canon EOS-R1, the RF mount mirrorless version of the EOS-1D X Mark III, is rumored to feature a new 21MP full frame sensor.

Canon has developed a new image sensor with the following specifications:

  • 21MP full-frame sensor (6.4um)
  • Global shutter
  • 120dB dynamic range (This translates to 20stops of dynamic range)
  • 120 fps
  • The image sensor may be based on the 2/3″ sensor shown for ISSC 2017.

This new image sensor will probably be featured on the Canon EOS R1. One of the prototypes of Canon EOS R1 is rumored to have 6K video shooting capabilities. If the Canon EOS R1 can shoot regular 6K (6144 x 3160 pixels) video, then the camera will need at least a 3:2 ratio 6144 x 4096 (25.17 million) pixel image sensor. It is almost confirmed that no matter which image sensor solution is adopted, the Canon EOS R1 camera will not continue to use the 20.1 megapixel sensor of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III flagship SLR camera.
