Canon's 8K video camera
Canon also announced that it's developing a camera and display that can record and show imagery in 8K, a new video format with 16 times the resolution of today's high-definition TVs.
The Cinema EOS System 8K camera and 8K reference display follow the company's 4K equipment for professional users. They mark the company's first foray into 8K broadcasting, which is expected to begin in Japan ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
The 8K camera will have a Canon Super 35mm-equivalent CMOS sensor with 8,192 by 4,320 pixel resolution at 60 frames per second. The display will have a pixel density over 300 pixels per inch, which approaches the limits of perception by the human eye, the company said.
