Is the sensor self-developed or outsourced?

The only 20mpixel aps-c sensor on the market, up to now, is the one from samsung. If canon uses it, then it's very good, quite better than the older canon 18mpixel one in every aspect.

No, canon only use their own sensor in their DSLR. Unlike other camera makes, canon own several CMOS manufacturing plant. That is who canon was able to make the 1st FF dSLR 4 years ahead of competition. Canon also never sell their CMOS sensor to other manufactures.

But for Low-End Point/Shoot, all canon ccd 1/2.7" sensor are bought from sony.
