A Foveon-Like sensor in new Canon flagship?
Oct 28, 2011

Canonrumors.com reported about a Patent request filed by Canon for a three-layers sensor.

That would be the optimal solution, if they can properly manage the sensor's features.

They could make a Full Format 24MB sensor that current good lenses could easily deal with, and at the same time, the effective resolution would be comparable to a Medium format sensor with around 39MB pixels.

Does it make any sense to you?
