The Future of Photography

An exposition this week in Paris offered a glimpse of what to expect from photography in the future. The Telegraph profiles Canon’s latest concept technology.

“Imagine a world where your camera could see things that were invisible to you. Take a photo at night and the camera would reveal what lay hidden in the darkness. Canon’s largest sensor can do just that, though it’s still a little too big to fit inside your camera. Measuring 202 x 205mm, this sensor is 40 times the size of a commercial sensor and its pixels are also 40 times larger. These larger pixels mean that the sensor requires just 1/100th of the light needed by the largest sensors in professional cameras so it can capture details that are invisible to the naked eye.”
