An 8.3MP Super 35mm CMOS sensor, designed and manufactured by Canon specifically for video capture, provides 3ch RGB processing for Full HD recording. It delivers superb high-resolution images with high sensitivity, low noise, reduced rolling shutter artefacts and shallow depth of field.
Built-in Canon Log Gamma gives neutral image quality with 12-stops of latitude (800% dynamic range) at a base setting of ISO 850. A Wide Dynamic Range option delivers footage with the same wide latitude but does not require grading.
Factory pre-installed Dual Pixel AF feature optimises AF capabilities of the camera by employing an upgrade to the CMOS sensor that holds an array of pixels, each featuring two photodiodes. This feature enables a new continuous auto-focusing mode as well as improving the speed and accuracy of the one-shot AF function. When Continuous AF is enabled, the outputs of the two photodiodes are compared continuously so that phase difference AF ensures speed, precision, reduced focus 'hunting', as well as smooth focus transitions even while the subject and / or camera is in motion.
