New Canon Sensor Fab Plant to come online?
1 month ago

If you look at the rumour sites - Canon is supposed to unveil some revolutionary technology breakthrough in sensor manufacturing this year in some new camera models.

It's been no secret that Canon has been falling behind Sony in Sensor design mainly because of their older Sensor Fab Plant which is supposed to change this year.

I never did understand why they didn't just outsource the Fab work - maybe it was pride? Canon guys love to make fun of Nikon using Sony/Aptina manufactured sensors.

But they sure have cranked up the expectations of this new sensor.

Not much info on what it is - just that it will be Revolutionary - that's a lot of hype to live too.

Wonder what Sony has up its sleeve.
