From: Photography Bay...received word yesterday from a reliable source that a pre-production high resolution Canon DSLR is currently undergoing field testing. The camera is a pro-sized body like the 1D X. The resolution of the sensor is greater than 75MP.

Of course, Canon has tested cameras and technologies before that never made it to the market. And, this seems like such a massive jump in resolution from what is currently on the market.

The Canon EOS 1S has been in the rumor mill for some time as a high resolution pro DSLR, albeit prior rumored specs of 47MP-ish. Just because Canon is testing cameras with 75MP+ sensors doesn’t mean that a 47MP sensor won’t end up in the final model.

Given that the 70D is a 40 megaphotosite sensor, Canon obviously has the tech to produce such a sensor. I'm guessing they would do the same as a 70D and set it up as a dual pixel arrangement.

So even with 75+ megaphotosites, it would still be a 37ish megapixel camera.
