Canon to start selling to third party sensor

A couple of months ago, Japanese business portal Nikkei confirmed that Canon will start selling the image sensors to third parties.

Back in August:

[Canon] plans to begin selling its CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors within two years and has already assembled a team to launch the business.

    The competition that Canon brings to the market could help raise the level of a technology whose use has expanded from taking photos to enabling machines to see the world around them.

The Japanese maker of digital cameras and office equipment plans to begin selling its CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors within two years and has already assembled a team to launch the business.

    The competition that Canon brings to the market could help raise the level of a technology whose use has expanded from taking photos to enabling machines to see the world around them.

For starters, Canon has developed a new sensor able to capture fast-moving objects with little image distortion. With an increased memory for brightness, the new sensor outperforms rival devices in terms of capturing contrast, according to the company.

Canon says it could help autonomous cars see the road and identify pedestrians during high-speed night driving. In factory robots, it could improve the mechanical workers’ ability to perform quality checks or position parts. Other image sensor manufacturers are also pursuing automotive and industrial applications.

Hence in this regard Specification sheets for three image sensors revealed on the web and now these are available for

third party. It’s a 120MP APS-H sensor, a 2.2MP fullframe sensor for use in very low light settings, and a 5MP sensor with global shutter.
